    It's safe to say Star Jones' view of her former cohosts hasn't exactly been filled with warm fuzzies.

    So, what could possibly bring the Celebrity Apprentice alum back to the daytime talk show just a few years after referring to Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Barbara Walters as, um, "hateful"?

    Charity, of course.

    Jones is putting the past behind her, and going from cohost to guest on The View's Feb. 22 show, in an effort to raise awareness about heart disease and discuss her involvement with the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement.  

    This is a campaign that holds a special place for Jones, who underwent successful cardiac surgery back in March 2010.

    The sassy attorney, who was one of the show's five original cohosts, last appeared on the show in June 2006 and announced that "after much prayer and counsel" she would not be returning to the program.

    Jones later went on to tell People, regarding her decision to leave the show, "My contract was not renewed. I feel like I was fired."

    This should be interesting.
