Star Jones files for divorce from Al Reynolds

Star Jones has finally filed for divorce from her husband of nearly three and a half years, investment banker Al Reynolds. She filed the paperwork on March 26, and according to OK! Magazine it was considered an “Uncontested Matrimonial” case and was sealed. Star must have been pissed that no one picked up the news yet, because she’s issued a statement to ET making sure we all know about it and asking for privacy:

The TV host filed in NYC on March 26 and it was marked as a “Uncontested Matrimonial” case by the court and the records were sealed.

Star tells ET in a statement, “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.”

The National Enquirer reported in their March 17 issue that Star had kicked Al out of their NY home and was planning to divorce him. They were said to be fighting over their finances after Star lost her job as a talk show host at Court TV. Al was said to be “either at the gym or playing golf” while she was off earning money. After she lost her job and he was still loafing around it was the last straw for her. It is also said that the “rumors” of his sexual preferences were too much for her to take.

It’s not surprising that these two are getting divorced, but that it took so long. Given how much of a freebie hound Star is, she’ll probably figure out a way to get stuff in exchange for whatever promotion she can provide. I’m surprised her statement didn’t say something like, “I’m getting over my divorce with the help of ‘Lee Press On Nails,’ which come in many colors to match your outfits and moods and are available at CVS Outlets nationwide.” You know they would only have to send her a year’s supply and she’d be all over that.

    Ha! Celebitchy that’s hilarious about the press on nails. I’m amazed it lasted this long. Wasn’t there a pre-nup stating that he had to stick around for two years to collect?

    So many of these celebs are hyprocrites. They want the entire media to share in their weddings and child births and then when their disposable marriages go sour they all scream, ‘privacy please!’.

    And yes, she issued this statement because otherwise no one would have noticed.

    So Big Gay Al is free to go marry Mr. Slave?

    Good for him.

    All I could think when reading the article was “Is that an extra ear or some strange flesh-coloured flower in her hair?”.

    Thanks Roni for clearing that up (although the answer is far less exotic than what I had in mind).
