This TODAY show segment I did this morning on Kathie Lee & Hoda was absolutely cool. It was bicultural and it felt like an extension of me and my HIGHLY RELEVANT podcast, which you should listen to if you haven’t. Overall, it was just fun to talk about the Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony event which was such a Latino subject, since the concert was in Spanish, with salsa music and the song No Me Ames is a Spanish-language tune. Also, I enjoyed being able to discuss my dissatisfaction with MTV’s VMAs on my podcast, then break it down the morning after on national TV. Truly a blessing for a professional in the pop culture industry. Hope you enjoy it! Read More

When I first heard that Jennifer Lopez was becoming a TV executive, I must confess, I thought it was just marketing hype. But after a very good upfront presentation and a stream of articles on the programming front, I have to personally congratulate her for really making this new venture real.
As partner and Chief Creative Officer of NUVOtv (bicultural network for US Hispanics), Lopez is in charge of contributing programming to the network, work on strategy and assist in marketing.
I just received a video of Lopez herself talking about the new NUVOtv launch. Watch it above!Read More
After taking a break to spend time with her twins, Jennifer Lopez is back on the scene filming her next movie, The Back Up Plan.
Lopez will be filming scenes this week for the movie at 400 Colorado Bl, Pasadena.
“The Back-Up Plan” is about a woman (Lopez) who plays pet shop owner Zoe, an unlucky in love woman who is desperate for a child. She decides to conceive using artificial insemination, but meets love interest Stan, played by Alex O’Loughlin, soon after.
Jennifer Lopez says she is petrified she will “forget how to act”.
The 39-year-old star, who has 15-month-old twins Max and Emme with husband Marc Anthony, is currently shooting her first movie for three years, and was worried she would struggle to readjust to working life.
Despite her initial nerves, Lopez soon fell back into the swing of movie making.
She said: “I bring the babies to work with me. I love it. Honestly, one of the best days of my life was the first day back working on this film.
“I wanted to do this film really badly and bringing my babies with me that first morning, I was like, ‘Oh my God, they’re with me, I’m making a movie, they’re here!’ It’s great having kids on set. It’s the best.”
