Star_jones_jpgStar Jones files for divorce?

So the big question is not what happened, but what took her so long?

Here’s her exclusive statement given to "Entertainment Tonight":

"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."

Star and Al Reynolds have been married for 3 1/2 years. Their extravagant wedding, with 500 guests, three matrons of honor, 12 bridesmaids and four flower girls, came under scrutiny after Star mentioned her wedding "sponsors"’ — think freebies — on the talk show "The View."

Wonder if anyone will want to sponsor her divorce?

Photo: Here’s Star Jones in New York on April 17, apparently still making errors in judgment and inviting the media to cover her life. ET reports that Jones is "out of the country." You just know she’ll be back in the limelight after dumping Big Al. But, oh, in the meantime, this is not gonna be pretty.
