I am a PR Rep and PAO. (SEE: (blogs): highvizpr,abbebuckpr, abbebuckpublicaffairs); Twitter). YES, politics + info-tainment are ruling the day; W/ micro-blogging speeding the process of plow and share ten-fold, I share PR POV right here, welcoming all Q & A. To find out more about my line, "GOOGLE" (of course!)/ get in touch. (Still) TOPICAL QUOTE: "We are living in an age of Publicity" -Will Rogers (1924) ~~(Some things just never change!) # # #

The "I can get sued" Dept. - No, I can't! Star Jones (already) on the comeback trail - not a publicity stunt - I AM THE VICTIM HERE
Star Jones is the ultimate DIVA - love her, hate her, she is a S T A R. But now she is out of the closet - she 'fessed up to Al Roker on TODAY. Bigger than Larry King which was a benchwarmer. It was long segment -- Longer than "Hillary Clinton and the vast right wing conspiracy" (!) It will take one hell of a brand reshaping here, But Savvy Star is getting busy so she lands another gig NOW. She is taking the high road.
Hindsight is 20 - 15: Yes, she should have had the public join the journey at Day #1. Just a purely PR opine, natch. But this is a very good route. Confession to Al Roker. Good move. Apologized to viewers (ala DeGeneres) Better move. And if a "Medical Intervention" is the bypass, well, alrighty, then! (She and Al had the same doctors, after all). [By the way, I know Dr. Paul Lin personally--he almost did a re-do for me!]
Good luck, Mrs. Reynolds! Be ready: Barbara Walters will speak OUT sooner or later!
Abbe B., -92 now. Sans bypass and redo of a roux -n-y.
