On “Divorce Court,” Star Jones Addresses the Court in a Unique Manner!
Divorce Court is the longest-running court show on television, and it will soon include Star Jones, a former co-host of The View. The seasoned media personality is no stranger to daytime talk shows. The first show of its kind, Jones & Jury, aired in 1994 and featured the former Brooklyn district attorney and prosecutor as the show’s presiding arbitrator. Jones returns to the iconic show to dish out some rough love and uncompromising truths.
Jones recently spoke with EBONY about her upcoming role on Divorce Court and her anticipation for the show’s upcoming season.

Jones, Star It’s a fitting conclusion to my professional life. I’ve made it my job since day one in television to give a platform to those who don’t have one. Incredible how that has held true for thirty years in people’s homes. I get to do it again! Developing this brand further is a tremendous opportunity.
I can attest that the new season of Divorce Court is a return to form, with the show’s hallmark blend of engaging viewers with genuine, relatable stories and encouraging them to put their own advice into practice.

The show will feature the same lightheartedness and silliness as usual, but with a far more emphasis on empathy, and will focus on the difficulties that many American families are facing right now. With the support of the show’s producers and my fellow collaborators, I am able to provide the various litigants with the resources they need to succeed after they leave my courtroom.
It’s an honor to be given the chance to continue the work of three remarkable Black women—Judge Mablean, Judge Lynn, and Judge Faith—who have been at the helm of the Divorce Court since 1999. Honestly, I never expected to receive such a prestigious award in my lifetime.
This season, I wanted to see more couples reach final resolutions about whether to end or prolong their marriage, engagement, or relationship.
That’s something that occurs in every single episode, I believe. The “hard blows of life” that come with 60 years in the game are likely to have something to do with that. Seeing it all on television is something I’m very much looking forward to doing since I adore it all.
Although every couple has its own unique dynamics, one thing that remains constant is the desire for at least one person to listen to the other person. The vast majority of couples maintain the illusion that they are talking properly when in fact they are not.
They claim to be communicating, but their partner isn’t receiving or processing the information they’re giving them about their needs, wants, and desires. They will unquestionably have their voices heard by the divorce judge.
