The Word: The Anthony and Lopez divorce drama continues

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez knows a great way to get over divorce: Fly to the Ukraine to perform for some millionaire’s lavish wedding ceremony (I’d probably just shove my face with ice cream and not shower for a few months but to each her own, I guess). “Are you happy?” Lopez asked the 500 guests at the lavish bash, for which she was paid $1 million. “I am happy, because I am here with you today!” Friends of the singer say she isn’t just putting on a brave face: “She is jumping back into work and being a mom with all her energy and she is really excited. She feels like she has grown leaps and bounds,” a source says.

Meanwhile, Us Weekly reports that the couple almost split up in 2009 due to Marc Anthony hooking up with a flight attendant he met aboard a private plane. “Jennifer was going to leave him then, but Marc begged her to stay. They went to marriage counseling and she decided to give it another shot. He was someone she truly loved,” says a source.

Ukrainian weddings! Flings with stewardesses on private planes! What thrilling, bizarre lives these two lead. And here my idea of exciting is a night at Dave & Buster’s.

Zach Braff: Not gay, but still likes stereotypes

Zach Braff is working quickly to clear things up after a hacker posted a notice on his website announcing that the former “Scrubs” star is gay. In the bogus statement, Braff thanked his nearest and dearest for keeping the secret for so long. “My old website got hacked,” Braff said in a statement to TMZ. “Someone issued a ‘coming out’ statement on my behalf. I’m still straight and in love with my girlfriend. But not too straight; I still love musicals, brunch and ‘Doogie Howser.’”
