Q I really liked Star Jones on The View. What is she doing now?
—Alice Stark, Pellston, Mich.
A slimmed-down Star Jones Reynolds, 45, is sporting a new hairdo, wearing glasses and preparing to return to television in August with her own talk show on Court TV. A former lawyer herself, she began her career on the network in 1991 as a legal commentator. Her duties on The View ended in a blowup; told her contract wasn't being renewed, she beat host Barbara Walters to the punch in making the announcement and was—as they say in show business—promptly shown the door.
