Six years after leaving ABC's The View, Star Jones returned to the set and took a seat alongside Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd.

Jones, 49, told the ladies:

    "I take full responsibility for my own behavior, but I won't take responsibility if I did not make a decision I couldn't live with. I made the decision to go out on my own terms, to control it, so that if I was ever invited back, I would feel good about it."

While appearing on the show, Star discussed heart disease awareness and her 2003 gastric bypass surgery. Back in 2003, Walters covered up Jones' procedure. As for why Walters covered it up, she told Star, "Because we loved you, we did lie."

Joy Behar joked, "You're now a skinny bitch."
