Al Gets Ready to Rumble

Star Jones might be a lawyah, but Al Reynolds is ready for her: TMZ has learned that Al's lawyered up large for his upcoming divorce scrap with Star.

He's hired New York disso-macher Stanford Lotwin, who handled splits for Howard Stern, the Donald, and Diana Ross, among others. Still, according to Reynolds' rep, Howard Bragman, Al "intends to take the high road."

Will it get ugly -- unclear. Reason for breakup -- unclear. Reason for marriage in the first place -- unclear.

Meanwhile, Al's got a busy social schedule, as in social science -- turns out he's a professor at Florida Memorial University where he's finishing off the semester. Who knew?
