Star Jones Net Worth: Star Jones is an American lawyer, journalist and television personality who has a net worth of $18.5 million. Starlet "Star" Marie Jones was born March 24, 1962 in Baden, North Carolina. She is well-known as one of the original hosts of the weekday morning show The View (1997-2006). Star attended Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, where she remained a conscientious (and mouthy) student, which she attributes to her success as a lawyer. She enrolled at American University in Washington, D.C., for her undergraduate degree and was accepted to the University of Houston Law Center in 1984. As a lawyer, she quickly moved up the ranks from a position in public service in Brooklyn New York's D.A.'s office to her famed trial work during the highly publicized William Kennedy Smith rape trial in Palm Beach, Florida. Her work caught the attention of Jeff Zucker, then executive producer of the Today show, where she was first booked as a guest. A few weeks later, she was offered a full-time contract as an NBC-TV legal expert. Two years after starting at NBC, she had her own show, Jones & Jury, which debuted in 1994, where Star Jones mediated small claims court cases in California and explained legal proceedings to her viewers. After hearing the case and Jones' explanations, the jury/audience would then come to a verdict on the case. With the audiences' participation, Jones would then give the final decision. She was subsequently hired as a senior correspondent and chief legal analyst for the news magazine, Inside Edition, during which time Jones was assigned to cover the O.J. Simpson case. From there, Star Jones' wit, candor and polarizing opinions, along with The View's success, brought her into public prominence and the cast of The View was nominated for an Emmy every year from 1999 to 2006. The show also won a Daytime Emmy Award in 1997 and 2004. Jones continues to make guest appearances on various television shows.
