Just Married


A reader sends in this photo of Star Jones and banker Al Reynolds, married over the weekend in a star-studded ceremony attended by guests like Hillary Clinton, Spike Lee, and The View co-host Barbara Walters.

Rumors questioning Reynolds' sexuality have circulated on the internet for months, with The NY Post reporting his attendance at a gay Halloween bash dressed as a stripper in a white Speedo and bathrobe. Other reports have him at a Fire Island party in another Speedo, but this time dressed as Bam Bam from the Flintstones. In his juicy Filth column, Billy Masters reported on the Halloween party: "When my spy asked what his costume was, someone in the crowd yelled, 'He's pretending to be a straight guy marrying Star Jones.' Reynolds corrected him by stating, 'I'm a male stripper.'"

Whether or not Reynolds' Halloween costume choices and context in which he chooses to wear them are indicative that he's a gay man marrying a woman is anyone's Gest.

So does this photo show "a man frozen in fear" as our reader noted to us, or does it depict a couple intent on preserving the sanctity of the important institution whose protections are afforded to heterosexuals whose love for one another merits the label of marriage?

The wedding apparently went off without a hitch. Reports co-host Walters,
"I smiled a lot."

  1. And with all of Barbara Walters' extensive plastic surgery, that much smiling is quite an effort.

  2. Funny if she is marrying a gay man. A few years ago on "The View,' she blamed gay men for her weight problems. "It's all those gay fashion designers!" she wailed.

  4. He looks like a man being led to the electric chair. I don't think Scott Peterson looked as terrified upon receiving his "guilty" verdict.

  8. Hey, give the newlyweds a break. All the hupla over the wedding is just a precurser to their next venture to de-thrown Nick and Jessica. Believe it or not, already exists. Sure gives new meaning to all the good men are gay or married......maybe some are both, gay and married.

  9. Was this an "ambush" snapshot? Hard to believe that Star and Al weren't prepped for the multitudes of photographers waiting for their arrival (or departure...who knows?). I'm not usually a bettin' man, however...

  10. She looks like a fat drag queen. And so does the bride.

  11. AL is EXACTLY the same weight as all the cellulite Star has had removed recently. Given Star's statement "If I can't find the man I want, I'd surely like medical science to make one" and her access to the makeup whizzes at ABC we have to wonder if he is not a Frankenstein "IT LIVES!!" . Did he just "appear" at the right time? is this simply a coincidence?? I think not.

  12. Congratulations Al and Star. This society is befuddled with nosey people who can't mind their own business. As intelligent as Star is, clearly she knows what she's doing. Remember folks, she's a lawyer. Star...again congratulations on knabbing a man as handsome as Al.

  13. I just hope they will be happy...with all the recent media attention with them since the engagement, it appears Star is so determined to stress how happy Al makes her...I just hope it is not a front because when all the smoke clears and no one is paying them any attention, they will have to deal with the one else...I pray it is real...but Al looks like VP of the "Gay American" club with President of the club McGreevy.

  14. Why should Oprah be the only closet queen?

  15. Stop over analizing everything people. Get off of it. That picture probably caught them off guard and it seems as though they are looking at something else. Picture what you would look like if you were caught off guard. Get over it!
    That is her man and she is happy.

  16. They sure don't look like to kids who just tied the knot, to me!

    They look like they're afraid to touch eachother!

    Could they sit a bit further apart?

    He is OBVIOUSLY gay... and Star is a pathetic Fag Hag who couldn't pay a straight man enough to mount her!

    Ugh! They both make me ill!

  18. Geesh, isn't it enough that the republicans are always in somebody's bedroom, making judgements? This is their marriage, not yours.

    Get your noses out of their bedrooms and private matters. Y'all obviously have no life whatsoever, bunch of groupies.

    Best of luck to The Reynolds!

  20. I think Star Jones has such a beautiful face! But wow, she is an ugly person. She turned her wedding into a public circus. It wasn't a ceremony about two people professing their love for one another. It was about Star Jones period! She is a self absorbed over indulged insecure girl with zero grace and class. I feel sorry for her.

  21. Leave the couple alone!!!!!!!! Let them have a few moments of fame. Remember, she's 42------this was her chance for the dream wedding of a lifetime.
    I wish them the best & I hope the rumors aren't true.

  22. I give it 18 months.

  23. As a woman who has become overweight myself, I don't think we should make this about Star's weight. All that I keep asking myself is what type of woman wants to marry a man who is so heavily rumored to be Gay. That part is the sad disheartening part to me. Also, if I were to stereotype, this man, Al Reynolds, looks extremely Gay.

    Overall, I think to myself that life is short. Very short. We all want companionship and want to live out our fantasies. You are no different and nor am I. It is just that Star has chosen to live out her fantasies in public, thus giving us the chance to criticize. As long as they are not harming and hurting others deliberated, be he Gay, her fat and self absorbed or whatever else we think of them, the important thing is to live "your" dream. Truth is, for no other reason, I admire Star for being insane enough to live out her fantasy. What else is life for if not but to pursue our destiny. Best wishes to them as individuals and as a couple -no matter what type of couple they are or may become. Live your dream.

  24. Star is an egotistical, self-centered moran. She married Al out of deperation to get married to a "man" and he married her for convenience since he is in such a high powered profession. She is certainly living a fantasy in this marriage since neither of them did so for love. She knows he is gay; that is obvious. Yet, she so desperately wants to parade herself as the Queen.This woman needs to skin an elephant and hide inside. The joke will be on her because her down low husband will be with his male partners soon after the honeymoon. I am certain that out of mutual respect, he will hide his business. But his business won't be quiet for too long. I give this charade less than a year because it makes a mockery of the santity of marriage. Remember, I made the prediction first. And in the end, Starlet will get just what she deserves from everyone. Let me offer the first laugh.
