(Newser) – Star Jones is filing for divorce, 3½ years after her lavish wedding to Al Reynolds, Entertainment Tonight reports. The high-profile attorney representing Reynolds previously worked on the divorces of Howard Stern, Donald Trump, and Diana Ross. "The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone's life that requires privacy with one's thoughts," says the former View co-host.

"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," added Jones, who was on ABC's morning chat show in 1997-2006 and most recently hosted a truTV program. Jones' ultra-luxurious wedding at New York's Saint Bartholomew's Church came under scrutiny over sponsorships in 2004.
