The 'On the Floor' hitmaker makes the joke in the first episode of 'Q'Viva! The Chosen' when responding to a producer's question about her break-up with her husband of seven years.
Breaking-up after seven years of marriage doesn't mean Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony couldn't stand working with each other. In fact, the "I'm Into You" singer is comparing her relationship with her estranged husband post-split to that of Sonny Bono and Cher.
42-year-old Jennifer was asked by a producer about her on-screen chemistry with Marc in the premiere episode of "Q'Viva! The Chosen", which was screened Thursday, January 19 for a handful of journalists at the Soho House in Los Angeles. In her response, the "American Idol" judge joked, "[It's] very Sonny & Cher after the divorce."
"Q'Viva! The Chosen" is a 12-episode series that follows Jennifer, Marc and director Jamie King as they travel throughout Latin America in search of singers, dancers and other talents to compete to be part of a live Las Vegas show they're producing to celebrate Latin American arts and culture.
The first episode sees the estranged couple openly talking about their relationship with Marc saying they're "meant to be" in each other's lives for a long time. They also show off their playful side. When Marc is smitten by a pair of green-eyed, busty twin sisters in Puerto Rico, Jennifer says with a smile, "Let's keep the integrity of the show together."
