WHO'S THE SKINNY BLONDE? Jones
Americans have The View to thank (or blame) for the fame of Star Jones Reynolds—but maybe she'd rather we forgot that.
The lawyer-turned-talking head will be one of several guest stars on the season finale of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, along with Nancy Grace, Steven Weber, and the rapper Ludacris. But NBC's press release announcing the lineup, while offering detailed curricula vitae for the other guests, makes no mention of Jones's nine seasons on The View. Describing her TV experience, it says only that she's "known to television viewers for her candor, confidence, and uncanny ability to clarify muddy legal issues and pop culture concerns." In contrast, Grace's thumbnail bio lists practically every show she's appeared on, including—oh the irony!—The View.
