Jones grabs ring at All-Star game



The West won bragging rights during basketball's All-Star game, but TV personality Star Jones also walked away from the game with something to show off: a ring.

A stunned Jones accepted a diamond engagement ring from boyfriend Al Reynolds during Sunday's game, which the West won 136-132 over the East.

Denzel Washington led the cheers as The View daytime talk show host covered her face in amazement.

On ABC's The View, Jones is teamed with Barbara Walters, Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Jones is a spokeswoman for Payless ShoeSource.

Jones, a former prosecutor, debuted on television in 1991 when she started moonlighting as a studio commentator for Court TV during the William Kennedy Smith rape trial.

She later she became the NBC legal correspondent for Today and Nightly News, covering the Mike Tyson rape case and the Rodney King police brutality trial.
