Star Jones Star Jones

Not one to mince words, Star Jones has slammed her former View co-hosts in the November issue of Essence magazine.

"Those girls were hateful," Jones said of the women during her controversial 2006 defection from the chatfest, adding that Barbara Walters "set me up."

Needless to say, it's definitely not all water under the bridge yet.

The 46-year-old also had some harsh words for ex-husband Al Reynolds, who infamously declared, along with his heterosexuality, that he "still loves" Jones in a series of YouTube videos.

"I'm not in love with him," she stated.

The couple's divorce was finalized in September.

As for the future, Jones, who admits to "falling into a depression" after her truTV (formerly Court TV) series was canceled in January, hopes to find happiness again professionally and personally. She has a non-scripted series in the works and has been dating executive chef Herb Wilson.

"I want to fall in love again," she said. "I’m ready to love 24/7."
