Despite announcing their plans to divorce on Friday, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are moving forward with their latest joint professional venture, the new reality competition show Q’Viva! The Chosen. Headed by Lopez, Anthony, Simon Fuller and Jamie King, the series is set to film across South America this fall, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Lopez and Anthony will remain attached to the project. “Both Jennifer and Mark are committed to the Q’Viva! project and will work on it as planned,” a representative for XIX Entertainment said. But will their newfound relationship status add a new layer of drama to the “hotly anticipated 2012 celebration of Latin music, artistry and dance”? (Whether we want it to or not largely depends on how
horrible good the show’s contestants are.)
Lopez is no stranger to high-profile relationships, professional collaborations and front page break-ups. While working with an ex could lead to incredibly awkward moments at the Kraft service table, Lopez has maintained (or attempted to maintain) an amicable, working relationship with some of her former partners. She hired first husband Ojani Noa to work at her Pasadena eatery Madre’s in 2002, only to later be slapped with a wrongful termination suit before he attempted to release an alleged sex tape from their marriage. So things can only go up, right? Because, really, losing a significant other is a lot less painful than dropping your multihyphenate status.
