Lopez Says No To E! Special

Wednesday, August 18th, 2004

While this may be a rumor Page Six and Contact Music both released stories saying that Jennifer Lopez enraged bosses at the E! Network by reneging on a deal to film an interview for the cable network.

“Producers originally wanted J.Lo to feature in one of their E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY shows, but were forced to rethink the format when the JENNY FROM THE BLOCK star expressed fears about the inquisitive nature of the program.

E! chiefs responded by promising to reduce the coverage of their Lopez-related news on the station, but were left stunned when the sexy Latina’s representatives called to cancel the interview, according to website PAGESIX.COM.

A source says, “Jennifer cut a deal with E! that if they laid off her, she would give them an exclusive interview – her and her family members.

“E! agreed to stop the True Hollywood Story and cut down rotation on any other E! shows that had (negative) information about her like, (E! show) IT’S GOOD TO BE…”

But E! executives were left fuming after learning J.Lo had pulled out of the special, which she was due to be filmed on Monday (Aug. 16th). ”

Lopez’s New York representative, Leslie Sloane Zelnick at BWR, has hit back at the controversy sparked by Lopez, saying, “This deal was made by her old PR team. We are not big proponents of cutting deals. We have been going back and forth with E! about a two-hour special.”

For her recent 35th birthday, the sexy star asked well-wishers to give cash to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

Marc And Jen TV Show In The Works?

Monday, August 16th, 2004

Apparently Jennifer’s production company (Nuyorican) signed a deal with 20th Century FOX television network for a weekly variety TV show, featuring none other than Mr. and Mrs. Anthony.

Tempers Flare Between Corey And Marc

Saturday, August 14th, 2004

Thanks to Joy for this newsbit! It seems like it might be a rumor, but we’ll leave that up to you to decide:

Earlier this week Jennifer’s music producer, Corey Rooney, had a bit of an issue with husband Marc Anthony’s prescence, claiming he was distracting her during recording and even requesting him to leave the studio.

A source says, “Jennifer and Corey really got into it big-time. Corey told Jen’s people that Marc Anthony should stay out of the studio as he’s distracting her.

“But J.Lo was having none of it and in the end Corey left after being told in no uncertain terms that Marc was staying. Considering he’s done so much work with her in the past, it’s not good for them to be falling out with each other.”

Jennifer Smokes Cigars

Saturday, August 14th, 2004

Thanks to Joy for this article from ContactMusic:

Superstar Jennifer Lopez has a secret dirty habit – she smokes cigars.

A worker who tended to the singer and her mother GUADALUPE at New York’s Hotel Peninsula in January (04) slammed rumours of J.Lo’s diva behaviour – but let slip her fondness for smoking.

The porter, known only as Raul, stumbled upon a smoking J.Lo after being called to her suite to show her how to watch taped episodes of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy she had requested.

He tells American website PageSix.com, “We also received a FedEx package that day as well so I went with it to her room. She opened it and pulled a large really nice wooden box that she put on the coffee table.

“I asked her if it wasn’t a bit dangerous to FedEx her jewelery box like that and she looked at me and went ‘My jewelery box? Are you crazy?’ and started laughing and went ‘no no, it’s not my jewelery box thank God, it’s my travel humidor’ and she opened it to show me. In it was about a dozen large cigars.

“She took one out, asked me if I wanted one, which I declined” and began “puffing on her cigar” while Raul fixed the VCR.

Raul was thrilled when he left the suite – Lopez gave him a $100 tip.

It’s Back To Will And Grace!

Thursday, August 12th, 2004

To further promote “Shall We Dance?”, Jennifer plans on making a second appearance on the NBC comedy “Will And Grace”. Apparently it’s also to take some light off of her marriage, which still has still refused to acknowledge. Gossip/rumor web site PageSix.com, reports Jennifer asked NBC to appear on W&G in October – the same month as “Shall We Dance?” hits theaters.

A source says, “She knows it will help boost her image. She can’t do Diane Sawyer or Barbara Walters because they will ask questions. This is a woman who won’t even acknowledge her marriage. But her movie needs help and so does her public image. Jennifer got a huge boost after her first appearance on Will & Grace and even though she was very demanding – she had to have script approval and made them fly in all of her hair and makeup team – her appearance got great ratings, so they will most likely let her back on. Unfortunately, Janet Jackson just announced she is also doing the show, which means Jennifer will follow her, but she needs the public to fall back in love with her.”

Lopez’s spokesperson says, “I won’t deny the appearance.”


When she does appear, JLo.net will once again carry the clip soon after it airs. We had the last “Will And Grace” episode footage online three hours after it aired! It’s also still available in our Videos section.

Reports: Jennifer Appearing ‘Larger’

Thursday, August 12th, 2004

From RateTheMusic.com:

Superstar Jennifer Lopez has increased speculation she’s pregnant with her first child – after she revealed a fuller waist than usual while swimming on a tropical island. The Jenny From The Block singer, who wed Salsa singer Marc Anthony in a surprise ceremony in June (04), is relaxing on the Caribbean island of St Barts.
  And onlookers were surprised when J.Lo’s usually perfect waistline appeared to have more weight to it than usual. One says, “She’s really glowing and certainly has a little bit of something around her waist. She may well be pregnant.”

Jennifer Still Calling Affleck

Tuesday, August 10th, 2004

Thanks to Joy for this newsbit!

Reports indicate that Jennifer, now married, still talks to Ben Affleck at least twice a week. In Touch magazine says Ben recently even took a ten minute break from campaigning for John Kerry to take a phone call from Ms. Lopez.

JLo Was Bad For Ben’s Career

Monday, August 9th, 2004

From IMDB:

Ben Affleck’s relationship with Jennifer Lopez was ruining his acting career, according to his best pal Matt Damon. Affleck’s career has hit a slump after roles in flop movies Gigli and Jersey Girl. And Damon says Affleck – who split from J.Lo in January – was so in love with the superstar that he neglected everything else. He explains, “Ben knew during the relationship that the worst possible thing for his career would be staying with this woman. He knew what the deal was, but they were really in love, stayed together and they didn’t care and took the bullets career-wise. You can literally follow the dude’s week from page to page in the magazines and you’re not going to then go, ‘Yeah, and now I wanna spend $10 on the movie he just made.'”
