It’s no secret that Jennifer Lopez has always given favor to American Idol contestants who sing in Spanish, so now she and husband Marc Anthony have been handed their own TV show so they can find even more people to sing Latin music for them. Â The show is going to be called Q’Viva! The Chosen (yes, really), and rather than being a competition, it’s going to be somethingâ€¦ else.
Apparently Jennifer and Marc are going to travel all around the American continents, searching for the best Latin performers in the most unlikely places. Â The idea, of course, is to uncover talent that would otherwise die a lonely death, but I imagine the hosts and producers of the show stand to gain just a little bit of money and attention, as well. Â They need to fire whoever came up with that name, though
A glowing Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony headed the march at the 53rd annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday in Manhattan. The Hollywood power couple was accompanied by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to kick off the parade, which is expected to be attended by 2 million people.
Marc Anthony led off as the parade’s “international godfather” with gorgeous wife J-Lo at his side. Originally telenovela star Osvaldo Rios was slated to lead the march, but withdrew after a domestic violence conviction for assaulting his girlfriend caused outrage over his participation.
The annual Puerto Rican Day Parade started at 11 AM and marches from 44th Street to 86th street. This year the parade and celebration were shortened to five hours instead of seven and the route cut down by seven blocks.
The theme for this year’s parade is “Helping Build a Better Community.”
Because even on Jenny’s block there’s a recession. Couture jewelry designers often loan their pricey baubles, for stars to wear at awards shows and other high-profile functions. Like seeing Stalker Aniston wearing a $6 million dollar necklace is going to compel you to run out and buy one. I digress.
Jennifer borrowed $50,000 worth of diamonds from Robert Mouawad to attend the launch of Andrea Liebermanâ€™s fashion line, ALC, at Barneys in Beverly Hills. It’s not the Oscars, but Jenny won’t be up for one of those, ever. Lucky Robert Mouwad; diva decided to keep the loaner diamonds to add to her private collection.
â€œWe received a call from her manager Benny Medina, informing us that Jennifer was going to keep the jewelry,â€ an insider blabbed to the NY Posts yesterday. â€œAs far as Mr. Mouawad is concerned, Jennifer can have whatever she wants, but a premature demand seemed presumptuous.â€
Fools! Presumptuous is J. Lo’s middle name! J. P. Lo will inform you via her peeps that today is YOUR lucky day…’cuz she’s ripping you off. No need to thank her. She might even use whatever it is twice!
Looks like Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthonyreally ARE going to split up, dramatically, as usual. The famewhores have always been theatrical- J. Lo announced her pregnancy at a sold-out show in Miami during her El Cantante tour in November 2007 and will employ the same shock value a second time around. Sayeth a source:
â€œMarc and Jennifer are planning on announcing their divorce right after Marcâ€™s show at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 14,â€ a friend of the couple tells us. â€œJennifer is planning on joining Marc onstage for a surprise duet. Things havenâ€™t been right for a while now, and they thought it would be a bittersweet farewell. Theyâ€™re definitely planning a clean break in February.â€
Oh, the drama! “Surprise, Marc! Happy Valentine’s day, suckah. I’m leavin’ your bony ass! In front of thousands!” Skeletor and J. Lo have been married just over four years and are the parents of 10-month-old twins Max and Esme. They renewed their vows in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony back in October, but sources close to the pair say that it didnâ€™t help, and that their relationship has been on a downward spiral in recent months. Lopez, 39, raised eyebrows when she arrived at â€œThe Curious Case of Benjamin Buttonâ€ premiere in early December without her wedding or engagement rings.
Skeletor, 40, has been spotted sans his own wedding band at N.Y.C. hot spots such as Bungalow 8. He was also caught partying â€” bandless â€” with pal Eva Longoria Parker at Lavo in Las Vegas on Dec. 8. Eva needs to get some LASIC. Looks like Jennifer finally did. Marc’s reportedly a control freak, and J. Lo blames him for controlling her right out of a career. We’ll see if this can breathe some life into her slump…maybe she should start calling the papz like Britney! Cheeto run!
Looks like Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony may be headed for splitsville. Apparently, Skeletor is WAY too controlling of J. Lo, and that is a HELL of a lot of controlling. Can you imagine wresting power from THAT diva? Skeletor has strong powers. Diva has had enough of them, and things have been uncomfortable around the household.
OK magazine says Jennifer is pissed at Marc for not letting her show her booty any more, and making her wear matron-wear instead. He’s been picking out her clothes and monitoring her phone calls! She also blames him for her lack of a career now, and he reportedly isn’t ANY help with the twins.
Not to be outdone, Marc has been badmouthing his wife. One night after their tense family Thanksgiving in which the couple “didn’t sit together,” he hit NYC hotspots Bungalow 8 and Marquee, where he was spotted with his hand on a woman’s thigh and overheard complaining about his wife to a group of women, “telling them, ‘She’s making me miserable,'” a source says.
Looks like Jennifer must have gotten Lasik treatments, and realized she’s been sleeping with a zombie. If it means WE don’t have to look at Skeletor any more, Snarkista says GO FOR IT, girl.
Insufferable diva Jennifer Lopez may have out-douched herself this time. MSNBC sources are reporting that the legend in her own mind got PISSY about all the attention Olympic superstar Michael Phelps is getting. Hahahahah!!!! J. Lo appeared on “Good Morning America” yesterday to pimp her prep for the upcoming Malibu Triathlon. GMA sources say that after the segment, diva was overheard saying she:
“couldnâ€™t understand why everyone is talking about that swimmer. She couldnâ€™t come up with (eight-time gold-medal winner Michael) Phelpsâ€™ name, and then she blabbed on about how SHE was the one training for a triathlon just six months after giving birth, and how that SHE was the big story right now, not â€˜the swimmer.â€™ “
Wow. The stars are REALLY gonna have to step it up now! No longer is ONE baby enough to get the most press, as J.Lo and Angelina Jolie have raised the bar. You’ve gotta have at least two at a time!
Rebecca Romijn is pregnant with twin girls! She and hubby Jerry O’Connell just celebrated their one-year anniversary on July 15th, but it looks like their two big gifts will arrive closer to Christmas time! Rebecca and Jerry met at a bash in 2004 and he proposed a year later. A source close to the actor told Us magazine, “Jerry couldnâ€™t be happier about becoming a dad.â€
Earlier this month, O’Connell told the mag that they had been trying to have kids. We’ll have to wait and see if the first pictures of the twins will bring more than pictures of a single baby. Congratulations to the lucky couple!
