Star Jones -- Yes, She's Back (Again)

3/5/2007 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Star JonesStar Jones is a lawyer – and she plays one on TV. The former "View" co-host and Rosie O'Donnell nemesis will return to the small screen this May portraying – what else? – a consulting lawyer on "Law & Order: SVU," as Page Six reports.

It's a rare paid gig for Star, who's been largely jobless since she got the boot from "The View" last summer. The attorney-turned-Bridezilla did a little hosting gig for a cable real-estate show, and then she tried her hand at being talk-radio host, filling in for Michael Eric Dyson on his syndicated program. Appropriately enough, rapper Ludacris will also be on the show.

Beckham Busts His $125 Million (Right) Knee


A collective gasp went up all around the land, as our most significant import since loose tea, David Beckham, injured his right knee in a Spanish League game. Beckham ran into what the Guardian calls the "advertising hoardings" behind the goal in the 63rd minute when he couldn't pull up in time. Though he left the field limping in a vertical rather than horizontal position, the $250 million L.A. Galaxy star-to-be may have injured one of his collateral ligaments, a relatively serious injury that may sideline him for up to six weeks. Beckham is expected to start play in the Major League Soccer season early this summer.

Jacko's Hand Costs $100/Second


There are some places in the world where Michael Jackson is still thought of as an actual human being, like Japan, where fans are lining up to pay $3500 for a handshake and 30 seconds of face time with the Gloved One. He arrived in Tokyo yesterday, as the AP reports, for his first appearance among fans in several years, and certainly since his acquittal on child molestation charges in June 2005. No word on whether Jackson will actually perform at this particular engagement, but the King of Wack will be hosting a fan art contest, the big prize being a picture-and-brunch session.

Party Favors: Coldplay Says It's Written the One Song You Must Listen to Before You Die ... Hartnett Continues Crazy Lower East Side Nights ... "Wild Hogs" Wins B.O.


Chris Martin and his bandmates in Coldplay have pretty mild expectations for their own music. During a press conference announcing that the band is working on a new album this year, Martin, hubby of Gwyneth Paltrow, announced that the disc will feature "the one song that we feel like everybody has to hear ... before we die." ... Last week, Page Six reported that actor Josh Hartnett helped defuse a bar fight inside Manhattan's Whiskey Ward bar, but today, some witnesses are singing a different tune about Hartnett and his pals, calling them "very aggressive," and saying that Hartnett just stood by the fracas. His reps deny. ... Midlife-biker-crisis-roadtrip-hilarity-ensues flick "Wild Hogs" raced to the top of the box office, taking in $38 million to beat out fellow motorcycle-themed picture "Ghost Rider" and the debut of "Zodiac." ... And as of 8 AM in the East this fine Monday morning, Britney Spears is still in rehab. Promises, Promises.

Unfortunately, with all of the hype surrounding his (Beckham's) impending move to the US, I had a feeling something like this was going to happen to him. I'm not a huge soccer fan, but I do hope that his leg gets better.

Good lord.... Star Jones is missing out on a huge opportunity. She could use that picture to get herself a gig as the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz. Does anyone have green paint??

I am so glad that Star Jones is back in the news. As I have said before, she has class. Rosie is trash. I will look forward to hearing more about Star. Babies in the future? As for Beckham, I have no desire to read about him. His wife's claim to fame is being Katie Holmes(baby maker zombie for scientology) best friend... Is Victoria also into scientology.
Maybe Katie is trying to recruit her and David. They have big bucks, which scientology loves....Hey, why aren't there more posts? It's six thirty am here on the West Coast...

Good for Star Jones! I like her, and she was the only one who spoke the truth on the View. Yes, she did get greedy, and yes, she should not have lied about her weight loss. But, if someone is acting that way, why didn't Barbara Walters or staff take her aside and tell her, stop or lose your job. No, Barbara has two faces as does television network executives. They plot, lie and all behind your back. Those are the people who need to get paid back. Barbara is two faced, and Rosie and Staff beware!! You could be her next target. Not a truthful person in my opionin...Ms. Walters. She lost her creditability years ago when she stop being a newsperon and became a groupie for star i.e., Tom Cruse, Sly, Eastwood, so backstabbing is part of her MO. Good for Star. I will watch to see if she can act. I sure would like her as an attorney, she knows her stuff. Too bad she could not sue Barbara and ABC for lies/back stabbing/plotting, I would pay to see that trail. Hold your head of high Star, Barbara stick your elsewhere.

Oh what a shame about the knee...I hope he's out for good..No one person deserves 250mil. to play a game..We're the a**holes for allowing such salaries, Then again maybe he can hang with Michael Jackson, we could all go and touch his knee for 5000.

What's wrong, Star? Tired of being second to Al and his butt jockey friends? If that guy isn't a fudge packer, I don't know who is !
I thought we saw the last of Star Jones when Barbara put her sorry, talentless, big black ass where it belongs. On the unemployment line.
