Marc Anthony On Jennifer Lopez Divorce: "It's Not a Funeral"

Marc Anthony On Jennifer Lopez Divorce:

Marc Anthony is continuing to speak out on his divorce to Jennifer Lopez in an interview with Nightline that will air Thursday. And he looks heartbroken, but I think that's just his natural look.

Anthony comments on why their marriage seven years ended so abruptly:

"I'll tell you that it wasn’t something sensationalistic happening," Anthony said in the interview. "It was a realization on both our parts. So you know, it wasn't shocking. These things happen. It was a decision that we made jointly."

It sort of contradicts J.Lo's statement earlier this summer, as she cited more personal reasons:

"Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves," J.Lo told Vanity Fair. "To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself – if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now."

So basically, it looks like Anthony f-cked up. Of course, he's not admitting that. Rumors circulated in 2009 that Anthony hooked up with a flight attendant he met on a private plane. Anthony denies that, and he denies any rumor that he's been unfaithful to Lopez.

He didn’t address rumors that he's been having an affair with his HawthoRNe costar, Jada Pinkett Smith. But Jada's rep has denied that the two are anything more than friends. Lots of denial here.

I really don’t understand why Marc Anthony is considered a ladies' man. In fact, I don't get how he managed to nab Jennifer Lopez in the first place. I look at him, and then I look at J.Lo, and the only conclusion I can come to is that his penis is made of magic.

"This is not a funeral. This is not a burial," the single star said. "This is just two people who came together and just realized. . . I'm saying that it wasn't sustainable the way it was, and that's that."

Not "sustainable"? This isn't agriculture, it's a marriage.

Since the split, Anthony has been spending time in his Long Island home, a "haven" that he now calls "Casa Marc Anthony." Which translates to, "The house I cry myself to sleep in because J.Lo's gone, she's really gone."

Anthony and Lopez remain amicable, even though it doesn’t look like a reconciliation is a possibility. Lopez says that musically speaking, the pair "make magic" together. Anthony admits he will "always love Jennifer."
