Star Jones and Al Reynolds

Conventional wisdom says it wasn’t deep pockets but a tacky series of on-air plugs that got The View co-host Star Jones her free bridal booty – including donated invitations, tuxedos and bridesmaids’ gowns. The former attorney’s over-the-top Nov. 13, 2004, nuptials to investment banker Al Reynolds featured a 60-member bridal party and a reception for 500 at Manhattan’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel, where guests (including Kim Cattrall, Angela Bassett, Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos, and Hillary Rodham Clinton) were served butter-poached Maine lobster and red-velvet cake. When she filed for divorce in 2008, Jones said she regretted publicizing her many wedding details: “Several years ago I made an error in judgment by inviting the media into the most intimate area of my life. 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.”
