Jennifer Lopez And Marc Anthony Are Still On For Q'Viva: The Chosen
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony may be splitting, but a project at the heart of their relationship will still go on. The couple, who had been set to launch a multi-lingual American Idol-esque program called QíViva: The Chosen, will continue to do so post-divorce. Hopeful fans should now be able to breathe a sigh of relief, although, if we look at the facts, there was really little to be worried about in the first place.
With CEO Simon Fullerís XIX Entertainment Company backing the show, director/choreographer Jamie King on board, and the famous couple as headliners, QíViva: The Chosen looks set to be a moneymaker. While itís easy to bail on a sinking ship, itís much harder to bail on programming that should bring about fame, wealth, and talent. I canít think of anything that might be more easily successful than an Idol-like talent show meant for Latin American audiences, especially when the programming is already set and ready to rear in 21 countries and multiple languages.
Besides, unless something horribly indecorous like secret cheating broke Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony up, the couple has been supportive of each other through thick and thin. Marc Anthony regularly showed up to watch Lopez judge on Idol last season, and hung out backstage with contestants and crew. If any couple could continue to support one another post-split, it would be Lopez and Anthony.
In case anyone had jitters that this wasnít the case and that QíViva: The Chosen might be pushed back indefinitely: fear not. According to THR, XIX Entertainment has said, ďBoth Jennifer and Mark are committed to the QíViva! project and will work on it as planned.Ē So, if all goes well, production should begin in the fall. That is, if Lopez can manage to keep from grabbing somebody and drinking a little more.
