    Ex puts Star Jones on blast

    Imagine Star Jones’ shock when, while signing her book, Satan’s Sisters, at a store in East Hampton, she was served with legal documents.

    Apparently her ex, Al Reynolds, has filed suit against Star for violating their divorce agreement.


    Al feels that Star’s book makes disparaging remarks about him, which is a violation of the terms they agreed to. He wants $50,000.
