Star Jones worked for years as a co-host on The View, and she recently made a comeback to daytime by appearing on Tamron Hall's chatfest. They discussed Star's battle with heart disease and finding love again with husband Ricardo Lugo, who's also a lawyer.

Per The Chicago Tribune, Jones said the two met online:

I used my real, given name, Starlet. And it said Starlet54LawyerNewYork. I used slice-of-life pictures. I didn’t use a headshot. Ricardo’s was Ricardo54LawyerChicago. And we did eight weeks of back-and-forth, back-and-forth, and we went on one date. He took me to a French restaurant for a Champagne tasting.
