Billboard & E-mail update

Monday, September 29th, 2003

“Baby I Love You” still hasn’t broken into mainstream radio stations because it isn’t charting either on the Hot 100. Also no Billboard Hot 100 one-year history to report either. So unless “Baby I Love You” breaks into the Hot 100 or there is some JLo history, then I will not be posting further updates until then.

On another note, our e-mail is back. Now we just have to sort through the 2000 e-mails that have piled up! 🙂

Site e-mail tidbits…

Saturday, September 27th, 2003

First, we haven’t been able to access our e-mail in the past few days. If you’ve sent us an e-mail and haven’t received a reply, don’t worry! Once things get up and running we will reply!

And second, some of the e-mail accounts people are using for the mailing list are being blocked by an outside spam blocker (even though we are NOT spam). We are looking in to resolving the situation. We will be shortly posting a list of known domains that are being blocked.

They are “Working things out”

Saturday, September 27th, 2003

According to IMDB, Lopez and Affleck are figuring things out and recently spent the weekend together which we earlier reported about:

Jennifer Lopez is “working things out” with fiance Ben Affleck, but her publicist says the pair could just as easily take a break as get married. Following intense speculation after the cancellation of their nuptials earlier this month, Lopez has finally commented through her publicist on her relationship with the Daredevil actor, which was thought to have permanently broken down after she was seen without her pink diamond engagement ring. The pair spent last weekend together, and Lopez’s publicist Dan Klore says his client is “figuring it out”. He explains, “I think they are working things out and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re back together. I wouldn’t be surprised if they got married and I wouldn’t be surprised if they took some time apart.” He added during an American radio interview, “She’s not doing great, she’s doing good,” before appealing, “She’s 33 years old. Leave her alone.”

This might just be a happy ending.

Married in secret?

Ben and Jen together again?

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2003

Recently we reported Ben was out shopping for a gun in Georgia while Jen was sitting in the car. However, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution now reports seeing them together today at a county courthouse supposedly to get information on a gun license. Or are they really looking into a marriage license?

As the picture above shows and from what is reported, Jen and Ben were seen smiling together and cheerful and happily signing autographs. A full report can be read from CNN.

Billboard News

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2003

Still waiting for “Baby I Love You!” to break into the Billboard Hot 100. Even though the song is in many Top 10 lists, the song still doesn’t have enough airplay oddly enough. So get out there and keep requesting the song! We hope to have phone numbers to several radio stations across the country here soon.

Anyway, a year ago on the Billboard Hot 100: “I’m Gonna Be Alright” was #48, dropping from #32 the previous week.

Huge bill for the wedding that never was…

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2003

JLo and Ben are now having to face the rather large sum for their wedding: a whopping $3.2 million.

IMDB reports:

Jennifer Lopez and estranged fiance Ben Affleck are facing a $3.2 million bill for their wedding – even though the big day was canceled. The separated couple were due to marry a week ago but “postponed” the wedding at short notice after claiming they feared too much press intrusion. However, the glamorous Gigli co-stars still have to pay for the expensive wedding dress, bridesmaids outfits, wedding suits, rings, honeymoon, flowers and security. Included in the bill are two wedding dresses by Vera Wang costing $320,000 each J.Lo needed two because she could not decide which to wear – as well as $800,000 worth of dresses by the designer for the bridesmaids and Jen’s mother. Also adding to the total are $560,000 of custom-made Garrand jewelry and $160,000 for flowers. A pal of the couple says, “There was no time to ring around and cancel everything so Ben and J.Lo are still having to pay. “Jen was in a right state. She spent months making sure that everything was in place for the perfect day and snow she’s had to ring round everyone and apologize. The money side of it doesn’t bother her as I doubt whether it will make much of a dent in the couple’s fortunes. What she is annoyed about is that all the work she put in has got down the spout.”

Jen and Ben spend miserable weekend together?

Monday, September 22nd, 2003

Many conflicting reports going around. IMDB reports that Jen flew to Savannah, GA this weekend in hopes of patching things up with Ben. However, they were supposedly seen together looking “miserable” and “awkward.” While Ben was even shopping for a gun, Jennifer opted to stay her car. One witness said, “They didn’t look happy. She had a face like thunder and he was equally miserable. They didn’t speak to anyone. They went into a grocery store, then Ben spent ages in a gun shop while she stayed in the car.” After hearing this news, the relationship may be doomed after all.

More Split Details

Monday, September 22nd, 2003

Magazine Us Weekly has published an article in a recent issue with details about why the wedding was suddenly called off and the soon followed split. Apparently things were getting shaky with Ben’s gambling, such as a night recently where he was at Hustler Casino (owned by Larry Flynt). Massive media attention to the wedding was also another reason. In addition, sources claim, Ben’s mother told him to call off the wedding so he wouldn’t constantly be followed by the press. On the other side of the matter, Lopez herself was reportedly seen going to a psychic.

On another note, Chris Judd told Us, “She has my number if she wants to call me.”

A small article can be read here from VH1.

Wedding May Still Happen?

Sunday, September 21st, 2003

Well the longer it is, the more we start to believe that they have indeed broken up for the time being.

IMDB reports:

Sexy singer Jennifer Lopez has not ruled out the prospect of marrying actor Ben Affleck – she’s waiting to thrash out their problems with the hunk before deciding on the future. According to a pal of the “Jenny From The Block” star – who’s wedding to the Daredevil hunk in Santa Barbara, California on Sunday was axed at late notice – claims the hitmaker is on contact with her estranged fiance, and the pair are due to meet in person in the next few days to discuss their relationship. J.Lo’s friend tells America’s People magazine, “Only the two of them know how it might turn out. Either way, she’s one to confront her problems. I’m sure they’re going to scream, cry and laugh and maybe figure this out. They’re going to sit down and talk. They’ve spoken on the phone, but it’s different in person. They need to do it away from the glare of New York and Los Angeles.” Other sources close to the singer add that Lopez “still thinks there is a chance” of marriage with the screen star. Currently the glamorous couple are reportedly spending time apart to reflect on their romance – with Affleck residing at his Savannah, Georgia ranch, and Lopez holidaying in Miami, Florida.

BREAKING NEWS: Affleck, Lopez split up

Tuesday, September 16th, 2003

How credible these sources are is unknown, however, Lopez is said to be devasted by the news. If the wedding is completely off, postponed, or what is also unknown.

IMDB has an even more detailed bit about the supposed “break” between the two and what they’ve been doing since the time of the “split”:

Lopez and Affleck Split Reports Intensify

Actress Jennifer Lopez enjoyed a night clubbing in Miami, Florida, yesterday without her engagement ring – heightening reports her union with actor Ben Affleck is over. Meanwhile, Daredevil star Affleck was photographed holding hands with the same mystery brunette he was spotted with on Sunday – the day of his canceled marriage to Lopez. But friends of the Hollywood hunk insist the brunette – who accompanied him on a night out in Las Vegas on the day of his axed nuptials in Santa Barbara, California – is in fact his personal assistant Chay Carter, and pals add their relationship is based purely on friendship. With the brunette in tow yesterday, Affleck joked with photographers outside a Los Angeles eaterie, “What’s going on? Who’s here?” But while the actor refused to discuss J.Lo, the Maid In Manhattan beauty reportedly confided to her clubbing pals, “You’re going to see a lot more of me.” According to Britain’s The Sun tabloid, Lopez partied at the glitzy Crobar establishment until 2:45 in the morning, with one stunned onlooker adding, “She had a really good time.”

Also, World Entertainment News Network has this to say about it:

Friends Say Affleck And Lopez Are Over

Los Angeles, Monday 15th September 2003: Hollywood hunk BEN AFFLECK has ditched his fiance JENNIFER LOPEZ after a series of bitter rows in the run-up to their postponed wedding yesterday (14SEP03), according to friends.

The DAREDEVIL star – who was spotted with a mystery brunette in Las Vegas yesterday while J.LO was photographed swimming in the sea near Miami, Florida – has allegedly ruled out the prospect of reuniting with the actress.

The glamorous pair blamed intense media interest in their wedding for ruining the occasion, but close pals claim the stars’ relationship “soured” after the dismal performance of their movie GIGLI, and Affleck has subsequently split with Lopez.

One friend tells Britain’s THE SUN tabloid, “In the run-up to the wedding they had a series of disagreements. In the end Ben simply got cold feet. J.Lo is secretly hoping they can patch things up. But he feels there is no hope.”

A source close to the couple insists the “rot set in” in the aftermath of Gigli’s release in America – the movie was slammed by critics and cinema-goers alike.

He says, “It started a lot of rows between them. It soured everything.”
