Watch: Jennifer Lopez Talks Marriage Plans On ‘The Today Show’


Jennifer Lopez, the popstar turned American Idol judge who has been dating the much younger Casper Smart since she decided to end her marriage to Marc Anthony, paid a visit to The Today Show today to give a promo interview. Among the projects she is promoting is a reality TV series (Q’Viva! The Chosen) that she is working on with her soon-to-be ex-husband Marc Anthony. J. Lo was asked if she has any plans to marry her new lover Casper Smart and she was also asked about the current state of her relationship with business partner/ex-hubby Marc. Click below to watch video from her interview to hear what she has to say in response to both questions.

She’s been married three times, and engaged once, so Jennifer Lopez would be forgiven for swearing off the institution for good. And sure enough, when the 42-year-old was asked if she’d take the plunge again on The Today Show, she replied: ‘I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. We’ll see. I mean, I don’t know.’ She then added to host Matt Lauer: ‘It’s not time to think about that yet. It’s still fresh.’ But tellingly, the mother-of-two didn’t rule a fourth marriage out, and waiting dutifully in the wings as she filmed her segment was her dancer beau, Casper Smart, 24. On the appearing with her ex-husband – they announced their split in late May – Marc Anthony on their new TV show, Q’Viva! The Chosen, Lopez admitted that, given their personal circumstances, it would have been easy to walk away from the show commitment. But, she explained: ‘Marc and I were friends before we got married. We were friends for years, and we always loved each other. And we always worked together, so it wasn’t an unnatural thing for us to continue working together. And, obviously, we have children together, so it’s not going to be like he’s not in my life. He’s always going to be in my life.’ She also conceded that they ‘have their moments,’ but said, “There is real love there.’

LOL. Look, I love Jennifer Lopez … I really do … but let’s be real here, she is among the worst decision makers when it comes to marriage. Her first two marriages were nothing more than legally binding flings. Only her marriage to Marc Anthony seemed to have any weight to it. After Jen dumped her first husband Ojani Noa, she started a relationship with Sean Puff Daddy Combs. Altho they never married, they were quite an item for a while. After Puffy, she married back up dancer Chris Judd. When that marriage failed, she hooked up with Ben Affleck … and they almost made it down the aisle (remember Bennifer?) … but when that relationship ended, she started dating Marc Anthony and eventually married him. I honestly would not be surprised at all if J. Lo eventually decides to get married again to Casper Smart. She says her relationship with Casper is “still fresh” but … I dunno. She did not rule out wedding #4. I could see an elopement in J. Lo’s future, can’t you? I guess only time will tell … first, she has to get officially divorced for Marc Anthony before she can really make any wedding plans. HMMM, maybe that’s the hold up for wedding #4?

    PS: Trent you misspelled “worst”.. WORT, LOL

    • @cowgirl — She could be a wort decision maker ;) Hee Hee, thanks for the head’s up.

    Oh J-Lo, gotta love her. But you got the order wrong, she dumped Diddy for Chris Judd and then dumped Chris Judd for Ben Affleck and then married Marc Anthony after she and Ben were dunzo. I think she just can’t be single, but God bless her I think she’s just a hopeless romantic.

    • @kim — oh, you’re right … I had forgotten that Puff Daddy (as he was called back then) was in the J. Lo mix. I’ll update.

    Come one she’s La Diva Latina if she wants to get married 20 times she’ll do it. I don’t only understand why is she choosing men that are less successful than her .

  • nicole

    im pretty sure she’ll end up back with marc, and it wouldnt shock me if it happened before the end of the year.

    • @nicole — You think? I dunno. J. Lo never seems to go back once she’s done with them. HMMM.

    • nicole

      i really do. i dont know why, and i could be totally wrong. but i can see these two giving it another try. maybe not as soon as i think, but like she said – they were friends before and are friends now. and with the twins…i dunno. just seems like their not done yet.

    I just wanted to point out that when she said : It’s still fresh ….I think she meant the divorce is still fresh and not her new relationship…I don’t think she mentioned Casper at all!
