Star Jones Has Heartfelt Message for Women on 'Dr. Oz' (VIDEO)

Star Jones on 'The Dr. Oz Show'Star Jones was on 'The Dr. Oz Show' (weekdays, syndicated) talking about her health, and imploring women to be careful and find out as much as they can about their health. Jones, who survived heart surgery last year, drove the point home while holding a heart, touching with Dr. Oz the spot he called "the soul of the heart," because it's where the electricity that pumps the heart comes from.

Dr. Oz asked Jones to talk about how precious life is. Jones said she was overwhelmed, because she could have died, but didn't, and said other women will die if they don't look out for themselves. "Don't be scared of what you know," said Jones. "Be scared of what you don't know. What you don't know is what will kill you."

"I'm holding life in my hand," she added. "But I have life in my body because I took care of myself."

I had no idea Jones had heart surgery last year. I hope it wasn't too hard for her. Surgery's not a good experience for anyone.

I wonder how many tears Star Jones cried into her buckets of fried chicken?
