The most dramatic moment in Star Jones Reynolds's Oscar weekend didn't come on the red carpet. Instead, it arrived just four hours after the E! channel presenter and her husband, Wall Street banker Al Reynolds, 34, had deplaned at LAX. The pair were having dinner with their very pregnant friend, actress Holly Robinson Peete. But just as Star, 42, dispatched her husband to the bar for a glass of champagne, "Holly said, 'Uh-uh, my water broke!' " recalls Star. "Al pulled off a tablecloth and wrapped it around Holly until the ambulance got there. That was about 11 p.m., and at 6:18 Friday morning, [Roman] was born."
Puts it all in perspective, doesn't it? Well, sure. But miracle of birth or not, Star's fab weekend of fashion suites and A-list parties was just beginning. And so what if she had to catch a red-eye back to New York after the show to do The View on Monday morning? Girl had a blast.
