Just when you think things can’t get any worse, they do. I was distraught to hear the news this morning that J Lo and Marc Anthony are divorcing. What is this world coming to? Just a few weeks ago, they were practically having sex on the set of American Idol and we couldn’t think of two greater people to idolize. So beautiful. So talented. So successful. So in love. Such adorable children, romping on the beach in those Gucci ads. I thought I’d faint when she looked adoringly into his eyes, the man she repeatedly told us she loved with all her heart. He looked back into hers, the woman he knew he’d marry the moment he laid eyes on her.
We wanted to believe it all. If we can’t have it all, surely two such incredible people deserve to. What could have gone awry? Is she still in love with Ben Affleck? Has he fallen for Jennifer Aniston? Does she want to join The Peace Corps while he wants to move to Malibu? Does he want to send the kids to private school, but she insists on public? Or maybe, just maybe, they’re really just figments of our imagination and this perfect pair never existed in the first place.
But what about those marriage vows they renewed, not once, but twice ? Don’t tell me they weren’t real. I will be inconsolable.
