Star Jones sues the Enquirer for saying hubby is a homo
Gee, where would they get that idea? (E Online):
The article, published in the Enquirer’s Oct. 2 issue, claimed that her hubby, Al Reynolds, is gay and has moved out of the couple’s abode and is now cohabitating with a man.
“Mr. and Mrs. Reynolds have tried to handle these vicious lies and attempts at character assassination with quiet dignity for far too long,” Jones’ rep said in a statement to E! Online Tuesday. “Now they will pursue immediate legal action against anyone who makes false statements about their family.”
New York lawyer Robert Chapman wrote in his cease-and-desist letter, obtained by TMZ.com, that Al Reynolds is just away for a short period of time on business and that his absence has nothing to do with any man whatsoever–not that there’s anything wrong with that. The attorney was sure to emphasize that his clients “believe that everyone should be free to make their own choice concerning sexual preference.”
“The true facts are that Mr. and Mrs. Reynolds are happily married,” Chapman said, adding that the Enquirer story has already caused them “massive damage.”
How could the Enquirer get this so wrong? Star described her hot relationship with Al in her book, Shine. That should have been all the evidence the publication needed to get the facts straight.
“The first time he held me in his arms sexually, it was almost frightening because we knew our erotic interest in each other could take over every other thing,” Star writes breathlessly. “We had an intoxicatingly sexual connection the first two months of our relationship.”
So volcanic was their lust that they consulted their pastor, who advised them to remain celibate until their wedding. “It wasn’t an easy decision,” recalls Star. “Al is a beautiful man. He’s got the legs of a stallion. He’d be a perfect Ralph Lauren model.”
Help. Barf. Bag. Now.
Maybe the Enquirer staff read this and got the wrong idea.
