Star Jones, a former co-host of "The View," appeared Monday on HLN’s "The Joy Behar Show," where she berated the host for never reaching out to her after Jones left the ABC talk show, according to PopEater.com.

Jones and Behar were on "The View" at the same time, but when Jones departed in 2006 her exit was controversial. Jones reiterated on the Behar show that she was fired, accusing ABC of leaking sensitive information to the media.

When Jones had heart surgery in 2010, she hoped to hear from her former co-hosts. Jones turned to Behar and said, "You didn’t call, you didn’t write." Behar was apologetic.

Commenting on her tenure on "The View," Jones said she enjoyed the first eight years, but year nine was "miserable." "It was really probably the most emotionally destroying time of my life. I honestly was not sure that I could take it."
