Former 'The View' host marries on a real-life love-boat
She had a dream-wedding while sailing in the Bahamas.
According to an article published by Pop Culture, former The View co-host Star Jones tied the knot last weekend in a destination wedding on a cruise ship in the Bahamas.
The weekend was packed with parties and ceremonies on the Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas.
There was an abundance of things worth celebrating, including Jones’ 56th birthday, her bachelorette party with her friends, and of course, the big wedding.
Jones said ‘I do’ to her fiancé Ricardo Lugo after being engaged for 9 months. The couple had been dating for over two years.
Jones shared pictures from the extravagant wedding ceremony on social media, calling it the happiest weekend of her life.
She confessed that her child pointed out that she was smiling too much, and joked that too much smiling would break her face.
In a series of posts, the celebrity shared moments from her birthday party, bachelorette and also a preview of her wedding dress.
Days before the wedding weekend, the couple was a part of the Angel Ball in New York City. The duo shared selfies on their social media profiles, posing happily with each other.
Jones captioned her selfie by expressing that the night was a perfect one.
When she got engaged to Lugo last June, she shared the happy news with her online fans and followers with a picture of her diamond ring and a very creatively written caption.
She wrote that the happiness she felt was similar to the sun shining on her heart, and the brightness of the sunlight reflecting off her heart could have probably caused a heatwave all through the Midwest.
She added that bells of joy had begun to ring, indicating that she was going to get married soon.
This is Jones’ second marriage. She divorced her former husband Al Reynolds after a 4-year-marriage. The couple separated in April 2008.
Jones’ 2011 book titled Satan’s Sisters got picked up by VH1 for a series, which is inspired by her experience on The View.
She was a regular host on the panel from 1997 to 2006, after which she has made a few occasional appearances.
