    Her little girl looks like a little old lady.

    Yay she was amazing on AI. Little Emme is her Mini Me.

  • Jaye

    Did anyone think she wouldn’t return? If her career had stayed in the dumps, she’d still be married to Marc Anthony. It’s a amazing what a career can do for your self esteem.

    Now will she be wearing her Kohl’s clothes on the show or is that exclusively for the poor and stupid people who buy it??

  • dubbytyler

    what a ho

  • She Stinks!

    “In a related story, thousands of televisions are seen flying out windows..”

    Who wants this low class untalented trash in their living rooms three times a week? Ick, not me, not ever. This old HO will do anything for quick cash. She can’t sing, yet she is judging others? I’m still waiting for one of those contestants to sing that awful song she did called ‘dear ben’. haha!

    Any Lexy is right – will this over the hill desperate slop wear the Kohls clothing line? I don’t think so. Its only for the poor and stupid.

  • yay

    my goddess <3

  • Yummy

    Love and Glamour is her best fragrance yet.

  • Yo-Landi

    @She Stinks!: whoa. Obsessed much? I mean, nobody knows the “dear ben” song. I know it because I had the album….. That tells much about. Prick. Crawl back to the hole you never get out of. Sucker.

  • brenda

    U look great and keep up yourself with life and your kids I am very proud of you. Don’t let anyone let u down.

  • yo yo you stink

    You Stink this is your mother…now now you need to take your medication….especially the one that helps you calm down after you see Jlo’s name on print!!!

  • haha

    yay! that means at least she’s not going to try to “act”.

  • lexy hates bilson

    You go poor & stupid people…go take the bus to Kohls and buy her clothes so she can make the payments on her Bentley!

  • Ryan

    Im excited to see her back on Idol… i thought she was amazing last season. Congrats Jen!

  • cara

    Bored with Idol and JLO does not make me want to watch it either. I never had feeling she was there for the contestants, think she spends more time thinking about her clothes/hair/image than the talent the show showcases

    Think JLO was new and a fad the first year, but not much anymore and she is not really as likeable and popular as AI producers seem to think (they paid way too much for her), her star was on the decline, she needs this show more than they needed her. Plus with X-Factor, America’s Got Talent, is AI as relevant as it once was? AI’s most successful days are behind them.

  • Brittany

    Ew! This woman scares me and her so-called music is atrocious.

  • She Stinks!

    I never knew how much the JHO fans love me too! You love me, you know it, and you just CANT get enough of my meaningful insights and intelligent observations. Now, back to J-NO talent. Her career is over – judging a TV singing competition? Oh how the mighty have fallen, hard. She thinks she’s too good for this show, any movie, and you. If you saw how she treated people in real life, you’d change your opinions…..

  • antiopi

    @She Stinks!: how she treated?tell me..i have heard a lot,i wanna know..
