Star Jones files for divorce

NEW YORK - Three years after tying the knot in a spectacular, over-the-top affair that caused some backlash, Star Jones has decided to end her marriage to banker Al Reynolds.
ADVERTISEMENT

The 46-year-old TV personality quietly filed divorce papers March 26 in New York Supreme Court in Manhattan. The records are sealed, syndicated entertainment show "Entertainment Tonight" reported Wednesday.

But a representative for SHADOW PR, which represents Jones, confirmed to The Associated Press that she is seeking to end the union.

In a statement to "Entertainment Tonight," Jones said: "Several years ago I made an error in judgment by inviting the media into the most intimate area of my life. A month ago I filed for divorce.

"The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone's life that requires privacy with one's thoughts. I have committed myself to handling this situation with dignity and grace and look forward to emerging from this period as a stronger and wiser woman."

It's not the approach Jones took when she threw her uber-lavish, Park Avenue wedding to Reynolds in November 2004. She received criticism for endlessly discussing the wedding and plugging its sponsors as a co-host on ABC's "The View." The negative reaction to the affair, which was attended by guests ranging from Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to Spike Lee, was cited by Barbara Walters as a reason why Jones' contract wasn't renewed by ABC's "The View" in 2006.

The former prosecutor recently hosted a talk show on truTV.

Re: Star Jones files for divorce

It's hilarious that the press didn't even pick up on it for a month. I guess her 15 minutes are truly over. Let's hope she saved and invested wisely.

Even apart from "issues" with Al, she's not a great big fat desperate woman anymore, and her outlook and personality have changed. For the better, I might add. She's sort of likeable these days. Good luck to Star in the future. Annoying, but not malignant.

Re: Star Jones files for divorce

After losing all the weight do you think she's had all the excess skin taken in or it is still flapping under all the clothes?

One of the rags said 6 months ago, she was having it done in sections over time, the skin cut and removed and stuff.

Sally, I haven't told you the bad news. After I quit smoking in January, I don't have any more interest in the rags. That was something I did when I was smoking. I flip through them now really fast, if at all, and put them right into recycling and won't be renewing the subscriptions. The article about Jamie-Lynn having a hillbilly shot-gun wedding with beer and KFC caught my eye, but that's the only article I have read since like the end of January.

I just thumb through the pictures mostly. They're not as good as they were back before the internet. I did however read the story about KFC catering the wedding. Hilarious!

Al Gets Ready to Rumble

Posted Apr 23rd 2008 3:10PM by TMZ Staff

Star Jones might be a lawyah, but Al Reynolds is ready for her: TMZ has learned that Al's lawyered up large for his upcoming divorce scrap with Star.

He's hired New York disso-macher Stanford Lotwin, who handled splits for Howard Stern, the Donald, and Diana Ross, among others. Still, according to Reynolds' rep, Howard Bragman, Al "intends to take the high road."

Will it get ugly -- unclear. Reason for breakup -- unclear. Reason for marriage in the first place -- unclear.

Meanwhile, Al's got a busy social schedule, as in social science -- turns out he's a professor at Florida Memorial University where he's finishing off the semester. Who knew?
