Former View co-host Star Jones underwent a pre-planned cardiac surgery which was a follow up to the thoracic surgery she had 30 years ago last week, it was revealed Monday.

Jones’ last major surgery was for gastric bypass, which she didn’t disclose to her audience on The View. After strong criticism, she initially denied having the bypass surgery before admitting in 2007 that the claims were true. She was replaced on the show after she fell out of favor with the audience and famously quit live on national TV in front of a shocked Barbara Walters. Jones is at home recuperating with family and friends. –KADEEN GRIFFITHS
