Star Jones is giving marriage a second chance. The 55-year-old television journalist attended the 2017 Angel Ball at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC with her fiancé Ricardo Lugo. A source confirmed to E! News that the couple is indeed engaged.
On Monday, Jones posted an Instagram photo of herself and Ricardo from inside the ball. “Perfect night @gabriellesangels #AngelBall together,” she wrote in the caption.
“He’s wonderful. I’m happy and that’s all anybody outside of my family needs to know,” she told Us Weekly. Jones is happy to take on the role as stepmother to Lugo’s teenage son, Jake.
Jones and Lugo dated for less than a year before announcing their engagement. She famously tied the knot with investment banker Al Reynolds in April 2004 — only to find out he was two-timing her with (gasp) a man.
La La Anthony stunned at the 2017 Angel Ball at Cipriani Wall Street. The single mom wore a Rani Zakhem Spring 2017 crystal embellished Couture gown.
Other stars in the house included NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabar (pictured), actress Maria Menounos, socialite Ramona Singer, singers Robert “Kool” Bell and Ronald Bell (Kool & the Gang), singer Gloria Gaynor, and President Trump’s ex-wife Ivana Trump, mother of his three eldest children.
