Star Jones “practically had a meltdown” at polo matches in Bridgehampton, NY on Saturday, according to the New York Daily News.

The paper claims the former co-host of “The View” accosted a security guard after he stopped her from re-entering a VIP area by stepping over a low hedge.

According to the Daily News, a “livid” Jones supposedly became “snarky” with the guard, arguing, “I’ll step over if I want to!”

When the guard didn’t budge, Jones was “forced to walk around to the proper entrance,” says the article, which also claims Jones “snubbed” less-than-famous guests at the polo match.

What actually happened, however, is that the Daily News wanted to write a story that fits in with Jones’ supposed “diva” reputation and injected drama into an uneventful August afternoon.

A rep for Jones calls the “meltdown” story totally untrue, and Gossip Cop agrees, having been at the event and hearing absolutely nothing about Jones snubbing guests or accosting guards.
