I don’t watch much television on New Years–honest to god I’m usually asleep before the big bell rings. So I missed JLo being all “revealing” in her catsuit.
And the reactions have been mixed–is she a hideous old lady who looked more like an elephant than a woman? Or a fab supa hot piece of Marc Anthony loving behind?
I think the whole debate is rather humorous myself. J Lo is, like, *so* 90s. But I guess “revealing” your body is as good as a way as any to get people to forget that.

JLo participated in Vanity Fair’s photo homage to classic Broadway musical made Hollywood classic movie West Side Story. Who was she? Well, Anita no less!
Posing for a glossy, starlet-studded photoshoot with Vanity Fair, Lopez admits, “I never wanted to be that wimpy Maria, who sits around pining for her guy. I wanted to be Anita, who danced her way to the top.” That’s because it’s almost how J.Lo’s career happened, except with more spray-tan and highlights.
Well put! I wonder what Rita Moreno would think. More importantly, what do you think?
Check out the whole series (featuring a ton of B-list actors) at Vanity Fair.

They might not be hurting for money, but JLo and husband Marc Anthony are going after some dough — 5 million big ones — in a suit against Silver Cross, Ltd., the makers of a baby stroller who they claim used their names and images without permission. Check out the video and get the whole story after the jump.

That’s what gossip blogger Perez Hilton is reporting is on the tongues of Latino democrats: that JLo and old Skelly-Skell are all about getting some spotlight at Obama’s inaugural ball when they never supported the Illinois senator in the first place:
Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are scheduled to appear at the Latino Inaugural Ball (Obama’s supposed to attend as well) on Sunday, January 18th, two days before the official Inauguration, and some high-profile Latino Dems are NOT pleased.
They’re apparently furious because the high-profile couple didn’t support Obama until after he’d won.
One major player called them “vile opportunists for worming themselves into anything Obama related even though they had nothing to do with his win.”
It apparently gets much worse; Perez says that Mr. Skull had even refused to perform at “a ‘crucial’ get-out-the-Latino-vote event in Orlando, Fla., just two weeks before the election”. Funny how becoming president makes folks come out of the woodwork.

It seems in spite of all the rumors swirling around that JLo was in the process of giving birth to some Marc Anthony babies over the weekend at the North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, it might have been a false alarm:
A story Sunday in the New York Post said the hospital’s maternity ward had been “buzzing” late Saturday amid reports that Lopez had arrived to give birth to two babies. The report said two nurses had confirmed that Lopez was at the hospital, and that security appeared to have been tightened.
On Sunday, however, there was no evidence either of Lopez’s presence or of heightened security in the maternity ward or at the hospital. Several calls to a hospital spokesperson went unreturned. Calls to Lopez’s publicist, Leslie Sloane, also were not returned.
Like a real diva, she’s making the world wait. I, however cannot wait to see what the little tykes look like. And I think you know why.

Bennifer apparently wasn’t good for the career of the Ben portion of the duo, or at least that’s what he says. In a juicy interview with Details magazine, Ben Affleck spills the beans:
“It was probably bad for my career,” he says, unlatching the timepiece, pulling it over his hand, and gripping it between his fingers. He’s talking about the Bennifer years (2002–2004).
“What happens is this sort of bleed-over from the tabloids across your movie work. You go to a movie, you only go once. But the tabloids and Internet are everywhere. You can really subsume the public image of somebody. I ended up in an unfortunate crosshair position where I was in a relationship and [the media] mostly lied and inflated a bunch of salacious stuff for the sake of selling magazines. And I paid a certain price for that. Then, in concert with some movies that didn’t work . . .”
So does that mean he regrets his cameo in that fabulous video? Come to think of it, that was minor in comparison to the train wreck that was Gigli.

Ladies and gentlemen, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: JLo and Skels are procreating. The deets from In Touch:
It looks like Jenny from the block will soon be playing with baby blocks. In Touch can exclusively reveal that Jennifer Lopez is going to be a mother. “She’s about twelve weeks pregnant,” an insider tells In Touch. “She’s due in the spring.” After years of trying to start a family with husband Marc Anthony, she was finally successful with in vitro fertilization — so successful, in fact, that there’s a possibility she’s having twins! Whether she has one baby or two, “becoming a mother is Jennifer’s dream,” a friend says. “She’s over the moon.”
Let’s just hope the baby looks like its mom!
Check out the “baby bump” here.

Pop diva Jennifer Lopez debuted her new fashion lineup “JustSweet” yesterday at New York’s Fashion Week, and while JLo is proving to be prolific in cranking out the designs, she says she doesn’t care if she’s taken seriously on that front:
“I’m not looking for the credibility,” she said. “I’m looking to make clothes that every woman can wear.”
And with that, JLo means that her clothes are accessible to women of an income level significantly lower than her own. JustSweet — which JLo calls a was “fantasy — classic inspiration but with a new, kind of funky spin” — is priced from $49-$99 per piece.

JLo‘s trying her hand at TV producing again. First it was the reality show about dancers struggling to make it big (how did that ever go? Anybody…?). Then she said she wanted to bring her story of love with husband Skel…Marc Anthony to the small screen. Now Jenny’s got her eye on a new show about teenagers running a party-planning business. I’m on the edge of my seat…DO. GO. ON!
“The Amigas Sweet 15 Club” is being billed as a half-hour comedy with dramatic undertones. It is based on an original idea by Jane Startz, who produced the film and TV series based on the popular “The Baby-Sitters Club” books. Startz will executive produce with Lopez.
In addition to the music-centric TV show, they plan to develop “Amigas” into a series of young adult books, Latin music-inspired CDs and potentially other franchise properties targeting female tweens.
Cha-ching! Imagine all the licensing possibilities…clothing, lunchboxes, dolls, accessories…I hope JLo signed a pre-nup.

As if she really needed it, JLo just received a nominal drop in the bucket — $545,000 — from ex-husband and current nobody Ojani Noa because of his plans to write a tell-all book, reports People magazine:
The award was revealed Monday when Lopez’s attorney, Paul Sorrell, filed court papers asking a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to confirm the decision in a hearing scheduled for Sept. 5.
The decision would put an end to Noa’s plans to publish the book, which was to be titled The Unknown Truth: A Passionate Portrait of a Serial Thriller.
Noa’s book was to detail his first sexual encounter with Lopez, as well as claims that the singer had multiple affairs while they were married.
Mr. Noa should pay punitive damages for even thinking up that horrid title, say I.
Noa was bitten in the butt by a settlement he signed after his divorce from JLo in which is promised to not disclose details of their relationship or attempt to profit from it.
