On March 1, 2002, she filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court from Marty Ingels, but later withdrew the petition. Conflict between Ingels and Jones' sons (his version) and his outrageous behavior (her version) had caused them to separate several times in recent years, the longest being for 10 months in 2000.

When asked which of her musicals was her favorite, she has said it was The Music Man (1962). While she says she has special memories of Oklahoma! (1955) because it was her first movie, Carousel (1956) is her favorite Rodgers and Hammerstein score.

Was very disappointed that her show The Partridge Family (1970), was canceled after the fourth season. Her stepson and series co-star, David Cassidy, was growing tired of playing the same role, plus, the show had sunk in the ratings.

Turned down the role of Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch (1969). Jones wasn't ready to do a television series, hence, the role was given to her best friend Florence Henderson.
