As weird as it may sound, pregnancy is so hot right now. Ever since the arrival of “Knocked Up” and “Juno” in 2007, we just cannot seem to get enough fertility-themed entertainment. Whether it be the adolescent slant of “16 and Pregnant” and “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” or the scary stories of “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant,” the big guy’s little gifts are popping up everywhere. This spring/summer movie season is no different. There are two upcoming pregnancy comedies—”The Switch” and “The Back-up Plan”—with a bizarre twist. These new films are practically twins! Both these films take on the story of a single woman becoming pregnant by artificial insemination. But the likeness doesn’t end there. Both films take place in New York, include a love interest who isn’t the donor, feature pregnancy parties, and star a Jennifer (Aniston for “Switch” and Lopez for “Plan”). I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can handle seeing both these movies in such close succession. For that reason, I am breaking them down and pulling out the good genes and the bad, so you can decide which conception comedy you’d rather see, if either. Keep reading »
Jennifer Lopez hosted and performed on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and as you might expect of the totally meh singer/actress, the episode was only so-so. However, the opening skit, which spoofed the catastrophe known as “We Are The World 25″ (which was filled with “half famous randoms”) was hilarrrrrious and J.Lo herself did a pretty dead-on impression of Rihanna. (As was Kristin Wiig’s Gwen Stefani.) Check it out above. Keep reading »

After the jump, find out who we put in the latter category and why. And let’s just say that some of them (Ryan Gosling? Jennifer Lopez? Ben Folds?) will surprise you. Keep reading »
This year, Jennifer Lopez will be spending more time on the small screen than she did when she was a dancer for “In Living Color.” In addition to being in talks to play a cafeteria worker on “Glee,” Lopez is currently shooting a guest-starring role on “How I Met Your Mother.” She’s playing Anita Appleby, a self-help guru who teaches women to trick men into relationships. When Robin tells her about Barney’s exploits, she makes it her mission to “break him.” Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Barney, posted a pic of him with J.Lo on his Twitter account. “Jennifer Lopez was really great— hot, cool, and funny,” he said. “And well prepared! She gave me a few pointers. Here’s one of them.” Ba-dum, ching. [Hollywood Reporter, Twitter]
So why the television blitz? Jennifer hasn’t had a memorable role or album lately, and meanwhile rumors continue to swirl that there’s trouble in her Marc Antony paradise.
