It's always a shocker to me when relevant movie stars go to reality television. Well, that was the recent plan for Jennifer Lopez
. According to Okay! Magazine
she had a show scheduled on TLC:
Jennifer Lopez was interested in doing a reality show for TLC, and the channel wanted her two children to be a part of the story. J. Lo was having none of that, and remained firm on the terms that they wouldn't be featured in the show, and that her new fragrance would instead be the focus.
A whole reality show about a fragrance? Okay...
Now after the Jon and Kate Gosselin
drama (don't ask me to explain, I have never watched a millisecond of that show), J-Lo's reality television dreams are on hold.
TLC knew that cute kids are a formula for success – Monday night's episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 grabbed 9.8 million viewers – and now TMZ is reporting that Jennifer's show has been put on hold.
One TLC source tells the site, "It was on life support for awhile, and now we've just lost interest.
This is probably a good move. I'm not sure if people would be interested in a reality show about J-Lo's smell. Plus, I'd rather see her on the big screen than the tube. Thankfully, Miss Marc Anthony
is filming her new movie, The Back-Up Plan, in Los Angeles
- hence the picture above.
