UsWeekly says that Star Jones announced she’s engaged to her boyfriend of a few years Ricardo Lugo last night at the Angel Ball in New York City. As if she even needed to say anything; Star was working the giant diamond sparkler on her left hand like it was part of a contractually obligated partnership with Kay Jewelers. But she did say a little about her engagement, the theme of which was, “Mind your business! But also please give me some attention?”
“We’re engaged. Not talking about it. He’s wonderful. I’m happy and that’s all anybody outside of my family needs to know.”
Aw, but I really want to know the moment when Star realized Ricardo was the one. I bet it was when Star asked Ricardo if he wanted to be her husband and he didn’t answer “Yeah, uh sure, why not.” Speaking of, Star’s first marriage was to Al Reynolds in 2004, which ended in a messy divorce four years later. That wedding was like a wedding on steroids. 450 guests, a song sung by Patti LaBelle, plugging paid vendor sponsorships during The View.
I certainly hope Star will apply what she learned from her first wedding to her second, and I’m not talking about toning down the tackiness. Get as tacky as you want, Star! I loved how not-casual Star was about getting paid for her wedding. In fact, she should once again pimp out all the details of her wedding on The View. It shouldn’t be hard to get back on The View. The door revolves pretty fast around there.
Here’s more of Star, giving you weeknight Latrice Royale, and her fiancé Ricardo at the Angel Ball last night.
