Star Jones Speaking Topics

  • Stand for Something or You'll Fall for Anything

  • Lessons from the Heart

    Star Jones thought she was doing everything right: her breathing had improved tremendously since successful weight loss surgery; she was practicing portion control and exercising regularly. But she wasn't feeling right - a dragging fatigue had overtaken her and she was experiencing shortness of breath and intermittent pain and heart palpitations. So, after a few weeks of troubling symptoms, Jones went to the doctor, where extensive testing confirmed what she had hoped never to hear: she had cardiovascular disease and needed open heart surgery.

    A week before her 48th birthday, doctors performed open heart surgery on Jones, stopping her heart for 22 minutes. She emerged complication free and dedicated to taking care of her heart and her body. Jones spent the five years that followed getting herself in the best physical and emotional health possible, including grueling cardiac rehab, and now counts heart health as her new mission in life. She competed on The Celebrity Apprentice on behalf of The American Heart Association and has been named the organization's National Volunteer. In her inspiring, personal talk, Jones urges audiences to remember the proverb she now lives by: "She who has health has hope, and she who has hope has everything."
