Someone Gives Star Jones a Television Show

by at . Comments

Looks like Star Jones doesn't get killed during her upcoming stint on Law & Order.

After her famous exit from The View last June, the former legal prosecutor will re-surface on Court TV hosting a daily program that is expected to launch this summer. Seems like almost as good an idea as a Lauren Conrad fashion line.

A Shooting Star

The show, which has not yet been named, will connect the worlds of criminal justice with pop culture, the cable network said Wednesday. In other words: you're about to be a star again, Jason Wahler!

For Reynolds it's a homecoming: She began her TV career as a legal commentator on Court TV in 1991, before joining the ABC gabfeft when it started in 1997. She was then thrown away like a used tissue once Rosie O'Donnell was hired.

"The public is fascinated by the intersection of the legal world and the pop-culture world, and we hope to tap into that fascination as part of our overall strategy to broaden the appeal of the network's daytime lineup," Steve Koonin, president of Court TV's parent, Turner Entertainment Networks, said in a statement.

It's safe to assume that Lil Kim will be included somewhere in the opening credits.

Star Jones Quotes

It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent family with accounts of her illicit affair and speaking negatively against me all for the sake of selling a book. It speaks to her true character.
