Al Reynolds’ mom fears he won’t be able to go on after divorce from Star Jones

The divorce between Al Reynolds and Star Jones apparently came as a shock to Al. Though the nature of Al’s sexual orientation has long been disputed (it’s really hard not to make a Big Gay Al reference here – so I want credit for holding back) apparently he was head-over-heels for Star, and wanted nothing to do with the divorce. In fact he’s still so into her that Al’s mother is worried he won’t be able to pick himself up and carry on without the former prosecutor/former View co-host/former Court TV host. Star’s a lot of former things – I’m not even sure what she currently is.

Despite reports that he engaged in a post-split champagne party with an entourage of sexy singles, Al Reynolds’ mother claims her son was crushed after his marriage to Star Jones fell apart. In an interview with In Touch magazine, Ada tried to set the record straight.

“(Al) is so hurt and so sad,” his mother insisted. “He did not want this divorce at all. He wanted to stay married. I think Star wanted the divorce, not Al.” Ada admitted the relationship between Al and Star initially came as a surprise to her. “I truly believed that he would never get married. He never seemed interested.”

Now she fears how he’ll make it as a single man. “Honestly, I don’t think that Al will move on from this. I am very concerned for him.”

A lot of people are saying that Star seems to think that she can get someone better, now that she’s thinner. There’s a lot of gossip that she’s dating married NBA player Dwyane Wade, though he has of course issued a “We’re just very good friends,” response.

“Star is an unbelievable woman. We have a great, great relationship. As friends,” Wade said Thursday of the state-of-play between him and the former View co-host. “We’re friends, just like a lot of celebrities.”, he insisted during his guest spot alongside Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith on the light-hearted TNT show Inside the NBA.

“Are y’all close friends? … Are you the kind of friends that drink out of one cup with two straws?” Smith asked, referring to a much-discussed photo of Wade, 28, and Jones, 46, at a tennis match. “Those kind of friends?”

“We are friends. That’s all,” repeated Wade, who is married to his high school sweetheart. The couple have two sons.

Married or not, I wouldn’t want to be linked to Star Jones either. That woman will eat you alive. And I don’t mean that in the fat joke way. In Touch noted that Al Reynolds gave up his well-respected banking job to manage Star’s career after she was booted from Court TV. But when he started working on a book at teaching at Florida Memorial University, Star saw that as abandonment. Be wary Dwyane Wade: if you’re not all about Star, she will take one of those straws you two were sharing and somehow manage to strangle you with it. And she’s a former prosecutor, so she’ll probably know how to get away with it too.

    She is seriously one of the most unattractive women I have ever seen. She looks like a bobble head doll.

    D-Wade… what are you thinking? I was watching TNT that night, and I agree with Chuckles on calling him out like that– what kind of friends share a cup like that, can you not afford another drink? Ridiculous. Not to mention completely inappropriate when he is a married man with children, and she’s not even human looking. Shame on both of them.

    Hello everyone,

    We all know what his mother is afraid of. She is afraid of losing all that free stuff. He is a sorry man, his mother even knows how sorry he is. He’ll make because he is going to find another sucker.

    of course momma reynolds is upset. her boy took a frumpy lumpy famous person, and did an entire make-over of her, ala queer eye for the straight woman. now that star is all skinny and caked with make-up, albeit no longer so famous, mama reynolds probably thinks her al should get a percentage of all her future earnings cuz of his magic make-over.

    plus al has probably never come out of the closet to his momma, so now he has a perfect excuse to not ever get married to a girl again. . . he’s still heartbroken over star (melodramatic sigh).

  5. He is so upset now he will have to go the gay way! Suuure momma Reynolds your little boy has always been this way!

    DWade……why are you slummin? :roll:

    DWade can definitely do a lot better. Don’t know what he’s thinking. But, he is seperated from his wife I’ve read.

    Big Gay AL was Big Gay AL while he was a student at UNC/UVA. When they got together a statement was issued that his sexuality had been ‘dealt’ with and that they were ‘totally together and in love’.

    I think she feels better about herself now that she is slimmer and wants a man who actually wants a woman. Not a really good girlfriend. Big Gay Al will be find and happier in the long run.

    Al can always hook up with the Stella Got Her Groove Back guy. I’m sure he’s swimming in his ex-wife’s money as well.

    Hey great! It pays to be health-conscious with your eating habits this day and age. I have just lately discovered how essential tomatoes are for us and the incredible health advantages they offer. Growing tomatoes from seed in your very own garden is not hard and will supply you a luscious nutritious vege (fruit ;-)
