Jennifer Lopez Talks Her Being a Single Mom

Jennifer Lopez has her hands full as a single mom. But before accepting any pity looks from the public, she acknowledges that her single mom sister, Lynda Lopez, has it much tougher than she.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, J.Lo gave her baby sister props for handling momma duty without welching off her celebrity. “I just love and respect her so much. She’s a single mom but not like I’m a single mom,” Lopez said. “I have a lot of help — she doesn’t.”

“I always ask, ‘Do you need anything?’” Lopez continued. “And she’s like, ‘I’m good.’ But I know she’s exhausted.” Lynda, who is a former New York television journalist, gave birth to daughter Lucie in 2008 with her then-boyfriend Adam Goldfried.

J.Lo also became a single mother after splitting from ex-hubby Marc Anthony. Only she admits to having a number of folks (probably nannies) to help with the heavy lifting.

Naomi Campbell’s Ex-Beau Dating Naomi Look-a-Like and J.Lo Says She’d Like to Marry Again

In celeb relationship news, Jennifer Lopez says that she would be willing to give marriage another shot while Naomi Campbell’s former beau has rebounded after their breakup… with a model that bore a striking resemblance to Naomi.

Recent reports have speculated that Campbell and her billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, have parted ways after a 5-year relationship. And, from the looks of it, he has moved on. Doronin was spotted relaxing around on a yacht off the shores of Miami with a model named Georgie Badiel who could easily be mistaken for the businessman’s ex super model girlfriend… Whether or not he’s with Badiel, at least he’s consistent.

And speaking of being consistent, J.Lo sat down with a reporter on the set of her new video “Live it Up” where the conversation immediately went to topic of her beau Casper Smart. After explaining how he compliments her work, artistically (Smart is apart of her music team), Lopez was asked if she would marry again.

“Probably,” she responded. “… I like [being married.]” Could she and Smart be making plans? We’ll keep you posted.

Jennifer Lopez Looking to Enroll Her Twins at Buckley School

Jennifer Lopez has officially joined the fray of parents looking for their now school-age children. Only, J.Lo, like any celeb with the dough, is looking to put her twins — Emme and Max — in the higher stratosphere of education. Over $31,000 per year!

According to TMZ, Jenny-from-the-block has been looking around at a number of L.A. private schools, interviewing faculties for her five-year-old twins, who will be starting kindergarten in the fall. This past Tuesday, she went with her kids to the famous Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley. The school is considered to be one of the best schools in Los Angeles.

Famous alums of Buckley include Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie. Paris Jackson is currently a student there. Maybe she could be assigned by the school (if they get accepted) to mentor the young Lopez-es as they begin their walk through the doorway of life as children of celebrities.

Jennifer Lopez Opens Up About Casper Smart Relationship

Could Jennifer Lopez’s romance with 25-year-old Casper Smart be the real deal? The pop superstar swears to heaven that it’s serious, but we’re not saving any dates just yet.

In an interview with People, Lopez opens up about her relationship with the former club dancer, who is eighteen years her junior, claiming that Smart helped her get through some tough times. “I just got out of a big, heavy, devastating thing, and he’s helped me heal,” she says. “He’s been there for me.”

Lopez seems to get how her relationship looks from the outside. “I ask him, ‘Why don’t you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?’ And you think, ‘How long is this gonna be?’ You think, ‘Okay, in 10 years I’m going to be like this and you’re going to be like that’ and … men at that age are … I think all different things,” she reveals. “The truth is we don’t know what’s going to happen. We’re loving this moment right now. We make each other happy.”

Smart was on J. Lo’s arm at the Golden Globes this past Sunday, where he got an awkward intro to two of Jennifer’s exes, Ben Affleck and Diddy.  She also made him the head choreographer on her worldwide tour and agreed to produce and appear in a reality show chronicling his work.

Considering how far she’s putting herself on the line for a guy she met in a club, Lopez insists she has her eyes open. “Now I’m at a point where I have to recognize that these choices and things that happen are partly because of me and my decisions and I have to be more careful. So I am being more careful.”

Her friends may warn her otherwise, but looks like no one is going to keep J. Lo from being a hopeless romantic. We say, work it if you can get it, girl.

Did Jennifer Lopez’s Boyfriend Sign a Confidentiality Agreement?

Jennifer Lopez may not be looking to walk down the isle with boyfriend Casper Smart anytime soon, but she has allegedly locked him into talking one vow: a vow of silence.

Radaronline reported that Lopez’s beau, who’s supposedly not only her romantic partner but he’s also her employee, was allegedly made to sign a confidentiality agreement.

A source said Smart was asked to sign the agreement because that is required of all employees. Along with being Lopez’s partner, he is also her dancer and currently a part of Lopez’s Dance Again tour.

Lopez may not be as discerning about her love choices but she is on point when it comes to getting them to keep their mouths closed. J.Lo almost had a info hiccup with ex-hubby Ojani Noa, who wanted to write and publish a tell-all book about their failed marriage, but a few quick trips to court (to uphold that confidentiality agreement she had with him) and that tome hasn’t seen the light of day. Lopez is for real when it comes to keeping it on the hush.

But can you blame her.

Jennifer Lopez, Casper Smart Celebrate One Year Anniversary

Published by Natasha Fierce on Monday, October 29, 2012 at 10:00 am.

Those of us who have been hearing rumblings of trouble in paradise for Jennifer Lopez and her boy toy Casper Smart stand corrected this weekend. The logic-defying couple celebrated their one year anniversary by exchanging nauseatingly lovey-dovey tweets.

“BEAUcasperSMART BEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today is OUR’s!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful smile with me everyday!” wrote Lopez, 43.

A short while later came Smart’s reply: “Happy 1 yr. anniversary to the most Gorgeous, Kind, Sweet, Funny, Beautiful Lil Bear in the world…. Love Bear #October25″

Are you gagging yet?

Still, the anniversary is a milestone for thrice-married Lopez, especially in a world where celebrity relationships are typically measured in days, not months or years. We wish Jenny and her boo all the happiness in the world and are pulling for “Bear” to make it, even though Jennifer was quoted gushing about her relationship with Marc Anthony days before they announced their divorce. Just sayin’.

One Million Moms Protests J.Lo’s New Show “The Fosters,” Featuring a Lesbian Couple

“Family values” group One Million Moms is up in arms, again. This time, the source of their ire is Jennifer Lopez and her production company Nuyorican, who along with ABC Family are developing a new hour-long series called The Fosters, centered on a lesbian couple raising two foster children and a biological child. The series has not been shot, nor has an air date been announced, but OMM isn’t wasting any time spreading the gospel that the show is evil:

“Obviously, ABC has lost their minds,” an open letter on the group’s website begins. “ABC Family has approved a series pilot from Jennifer Lopez’s production company, Nuyorican, about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. Many families have already discovered that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But because of family being part of the network’s name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch the channel.”

“While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together,” the letter continues. “Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin. As Christians, the Bible also says that we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent then we are guilty of sin also.”

“Let’s stop this dead in it its tracks,” the letter concludes.

While it’s true One Million Moms has the right to voice drink their haterade, the group’s tactics are known to backfire. The group recently denounced retailer JC Penney for signing Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson, but later dropped the attack claiming there were “other issues” requiring the group’s attention— but  not before driving more than 50,000 anti-OMMers to join GLAAD to #StandUpForEllen.

So, in other words, this could be the best ratings boost The Fosters could have hoped to get…thanks, One Million Moms!

Ben Affleck Calls His 2003 Year of J.Lo “Terrible”

Remember back in 2003 when it seemed actor Ben Affleck appeared to have been abducted by the body snatchers? And in his place was some other guy who was dating Jennifer Lopez, starring in her videos and making really bad movies, like Gigli and Daredevil? Well, it turns out Affleck felt that way too.

The actor turned director got confessional with Details magazine and admitted he wasn’t really “that” dude. “I got shorthanded as That Guy: Jennifer Lopez, movies bombed, therefore he must be sort of a thoughtless dilettante, solipsistic consumer blahblahblah…” Affleck told Details. “If you were looking at that one-liner on me in 2003, which was definitely the anns horribilis [laughs] of my life…I don’t know what the lesson is except you have to find your compass.”

So it wasn’t exactly all Lopez’s fault, but him slathering tanning oil on her body in the “Jenny From the Block” video wasn’t exactly a high point for him as an actor. Affleck also explained how he was able turn things around during that phase of his life.

“I just said, I don’t want to do it anymore. This is horrible. I don’t want to be in this spotlight, this glare, this way,” Affleck told Details. ” It’s tawdry, it’s ugly it’s oppressive and it’s inane. So I’m going to try to get away.”

And nine years, three children and a successful marriage to his  actress wife Jennifer Garner later he did. No offense, J.Lo.

Jennifer Lopez’s Beau is “a Clown” Says Former Dance Crewmember

Published by on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 10:00 am.


Some people may not believe in the blissful union of Jennifer Lopez and her beau Casper Smart, but a leader of Smart’s former dance crew does.

It was recently discovered that the J.Lo’s back-up dancing boyfriend was former member of the street dance collective, the Hip Pop Clowns, whose leader, Tommy the Clown, was featured in the hit documentary Rize.

Tommy spoke with the New York Daily News about his old dance crew member.

About Smart’s hoofing skills and his way with the spotlight and the ladies Tommy said: “He was amazing – I mean Casper had always been a spontaneous type of guy, the uniqueness of his moves [AND]the way he acted. Being on tour, you get a hold of that fame and it can get to you and he was a ladies man.”

But when it comes to Smart’s relationship with Lopez and whether Smart is in it for the fame, the dance pioneer believes it’s true.

“That is Casper’s ideal woman, J-Lo is fine,” Tommy said of the couple. “She’s the bomb, because she’s still athletic, she can work out, dance and she’s a mega star. Age ain’t nothing but a number.”

Giving his final assessment of why J.LO is into the younger man, Tommy offered this: “J-Lo is dating a clown, that’s what she wants, they [ARE]in a big old circus and the kids is happy because he is a clown.”

Whether that was a backhanded remark, we will probably never know because, well, it’s coming from a grown man who dances in clown makeup. But, we get the picture. Love is a funny thing.

Jennifer Lopez Rethinking Relationship with Casper Smart

As with most of the loves of Jennifer Lopez’s life, they come… and they go. Well that seems to be the direction her current union with her dancer beau Casper Smart appears to be headed.

E! Online reports that a source told them that the romance appears to be cooling after pictures surfaced that supposedly show Smart ducking into a peep show doorway in New York City the day before J.Lo’s 43rd birthday. As a result, according to the source, Lopez is “taking some time to think about things.”

His lawyers strongly refuted what they claim were defamatory statements made by tabloids — against which they threatened legal action.

Either way, Lopez and Smart, according to the source, “are still together. But the photos have shaken her up.”

The source also added that Lopez “has never been great at picking men, and this feels all too familiar to her.”
