It looks like Star Jones is heading to divorce court. No, she’s not getting a divorce for the second time. The 59-year-old former prosecutor and former co-host of The View will replace Judge Faith Jenkins on the 22-year-old TV series as a new judge.

Faith Jenkins and Star Jones

“Before I was the legal correspondent for NBC News covering high-profile trials and conducting exclusive jailhouse interviews, I spent six years in a Brooklyn courtroom as a NYC homicide prosecutor and assistant district attorney,” Jones said in a statement. “Since the beginning of my TV career, it’s been my mission to serve as a voice for the voiceless; and after more than 30 consecutive years on television and in people’s homes, that remains true. As a fan of television’s longest-running court show, I was honored to be considered to take over the ‘Divorce Court’ TV bench, following in the footsteps of three incredible women, Judge Mablean Ephriam, Judge Lynn Toler, and Judge Faith Jenkins. I will offer the parties before Divorce Court, as well as viewers, a no-nonsense approach to the law and a decision driven by my proven legal expertise, compassion and empathy, personal experiences and hard-earned common sense.”

Star taking on this gig seems like a no-brainer, since she has vast knowledge of the law. As for what her expertise would be in regards to divorce law I have no idea. But I’m sure Star mediating people’s relationships will be highly entertaining.
