Star Jones and Rosie O'Donnell fired back at TV vet Barbara Walters Tuesday -- the same day she told all to Oprah Winfrey during Tuesday's show about the controversies surround their departures from "The View."
"Just like Reverend Wright, some people confuse passion for rage," O'Donnell said Tuesday on the "Today" show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hota Katb. "Passion on that show was not number one."
O'Donnell -- who is still friends with Walters -- was lighter spoken than Star Jones.
“It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent family with accounts of her illicit affair and speaking negatively against me all for the sake of selling a book. It speaks to her true character,” Jones said.
