Star Jones: Am I Annoying Or Not?
The Starlet by Star Jones line will be available at Payless ShoeSource stores starting in November, the company announced recently.
Jones, a co-host of ABC's "The View," was named chief of consumer style and spokeswoman for the footwear retailer in
2002. She is a self-proclaimed shoe junkie who claims to have 500 pairs of shoes in her closet.
"We played with the latest trends, colors and styles to create a collection that delivers designer flair at affordable prices," Jones said in a statement.
The line, which ranges from $15.99 to $21.99, includes a strappy dress sandal, a T-strap style, a mule with brocade velvet, a two-piece silhouette with an ankle strap and a strappy slide. The styles will be offered in wine, chocolate brown, forest green, champagne and deep black.
As Daniel McCarthy writes: "I just saw a television ad for Payless Shoe Store. Star Jones is their pitch-woman. Why choose someone who can't even see her own feet to sell shoes?"
Dan, she is the "Chief of Consumer Style," not the pitch-woman. Get it straight. Please help fund her eating habits: hire Star Jones to speak at your next event on "Diversity, Politics & Current Events, and Women's Issues" for a cool $40,000! (Note: be sure to make that "entrance" just a little wider before she arrives.)
