Star Jones’ friends are talking about the lawyer turned TV personality, saying fears about her chef boyfriend moving to a new city have her gobbling up over 5,000 calories a day when she is supposed to be on a strict diet of less than 2,000.

According to a close source they say the former “View” co-host was devastated after her boyfriend, executive chef Herb Wilson, moved from New York to Las Vegas for work, because she fears it may signal the end of their relationship. Now she’s stunned those close to her by turning to food for comfort…and gaining at least 37 pounds in just a matter of months!

“Star’s turned back to her first love – food – for comfort,” said a friend.

“She knows it’s dangerous, but there are days she’s so sad she snacks on junk food all day.

“Star knows over time she and Herb will see less and less of one another and, besides, there are so many beautiful women in Vegas that eventually he will start to date someone else.

“Star feels it’s inevitable.”

Star and Herb dated briefly in 2000 and then rekindled their romance after her marriage to Al Reynolds broke up in 2008.

HMMM man I wish her well!
