BABWA CONFESSES TO OPRAH: "I LIED FOR STAR JONES"

Barbara Walters, on the TV hype-o tour plugging her tell-all tome, admitted to an incredulous Oprah Winfrey that she lied for Star Jones.

Star lied to The View audience that she dropped a jaw dropping 160 pounds by a combination of Pilates and diminishing her super-size-me meals.

In reality, Star had gastric bypass surgery.

Behind the scenes Star told Walters she refused to be the gastric bypass poster child, deep-sixing Walters' offer of a 20/20 special devoted to her recovery.

Babwa covered for her frenemy until Star blabbed to Larry King.

Thanks for the scoop, buddy.
