J.Lo Opens Up About Her Parents' Divorce
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Jennifer Lopez's romantic life has long been tabloid fodder. And though she has frequently commented on her multiple divorces and other high-profile relationships, her parents' divorce is something she rarely talks about. But while being interviewed for the August issue of W magazine outside of her childhood home, the singer and actress opened up about her parents' split and how it affected her. “The last time I was in there was when my mom and dad called us home to tell us that they were separating after 33 years of marriage," she said. "I think that’s why I was nervous about coming here today. It’s like seeing someone from the past -- you’re afraid to run into them because you never know if it’s going to be ‘wow’ or very difficult. This is a combination of both.” And although returning to her childhood home was difficult for the star, Lopez credits much of her success to the work ethic she learned from her mom and dad while growing up in that house in The Bronx. ...

Popeater - over 3 years
Jennifer Lopez's love life may be constant tabloid fodder, but the popstar opened up to The Telegraph on Wednesday to tell the story in her own words. She revealed that her 2011 divorce from Marc Anthony "was hard," but that she learned a lot from the experience. "When Marc and I decided to separate, I thought, 'I’m not going to let this turn me into someone unhopeful who doesn’t believe [in love] anymore,'" Lopez said. "I didn’t want to just survive it. I wanted to grow from it. And I did learn a lot." What, specifically, did Lopez learn? "Most importantly, to love myself first. As women, I don’t think we do that enough. We always love somebody else more than ourselves," she said. "I did that for a long time and I couldn’t understand why things weren’t working. Then I realized that I wasn’t valuing myself in the way that I deserved." She also alluded to what may be the real reason for the divorce. "You accept things that are less than what you want, and the ...

Judd later said that his comment was intended as dry humor, but it was misinterpreted as genuine and prompted condemnation from many sources, from sports commentators to martial arts experts. After contesting the charge and appealing the penalty at the AFL Tribunal, Judd was suspended for three weeks. In another deadpan statement after the hearing, he stated "I've since watched a couple of Steven Seagal movies and realised that pressure points are no laughing matter," but he also acknowledged his own "stupidity" in the controversy. Then, his leadership was called into question when the team misbehaved during an organised Christmas booze cruise, which saw suspensions to teammates Andrew Walker, Eddie Betts and Ryan Houlihan.
