Jennifer Lopez just sold a reality show about Casper Smart to Oxygen

Here is an honest-to-God question: how dumb is Jennifer Lopez? Honestly, I always thought she was probably pretty smart, at least with her business interests and with how she presents herself to the public. But I think Jennifer is really dumb in other ways – she surrounds herself with sycophants and yes men (exception: Benny Medina) and God knows, she has HORRIBLE taste in men. So at what point can we actually say “Wow, Jennifer Lopez is not all that bright”?

As you probably know, Jennifer is currently loved up with Casper Smart. Casper is 25 – Jennifer will be 43 in July. It’s actually not the disparity in ages that bothers me. It’s the disparity in the careers, their life stories, their goals, their ambitions, their money-making prospects. Casper is a backup dancer who just hit the jackpot – Jennifer gives him an allowance just for being with her, and Jennifer has allowed Casper to “choreograph” and “direct” some of videos, performances, etc for her latest singles. With Jennifer’s new tour this summer, Casper has been telling people that he’s been promoted to “lead choreographer” of the tour (although most of the professionals working on the tour say that he’s only one of several choreographers). Well, what did J.Lo buy her boy-toy this week? What new job title does Casper-Wasper get? Who’s a good boy? WHO’S A GOOD BOY?

Casper Smart is capitalizing on his relationship with Jennifer Lopez. After he was promoted to be one of the choreographers on Lopez’s tour, we hear J.Lo just sold a reality show to Oxygen based on Smart.

Sources say it will follow Smart as he whips her other backup dancers into shape for the tour. The show is expected to focus solely on Smart and Lopez’s professional relationship.

It has already been picked up as a series. An Oxygen rep had no comment.

My first thought was “Wow, that will be so embarrassing if they break up before the show even airs. Classic J.Lo.” But really, I’m not even saying that they’ll break up any time soon. First comes the allowance, then comes the job title, then comes the reality show. And then comes marriage. Because Jennifer really is that dumb.

    What’s it called, “Got Smart”?

  2. Maguita says:

    Can we now honestly say that JLo has been “dickmitized”?

  3. Rhea says:

    Oh, Dear God. #shudder# I see the future, already. And it’s not gonna be pretty. I suddenly have a lot more respect for Madonna with her boy-toy.

  4. Jackie says:

    she needs to have her f*cking head examined.

    get ready for the next wedding.

  5. marie says:

    She really is pretty dumb.. Add that to the list of crap shows I won’t be watching..

  6. ZZZ says:

    Lemmeee guess….Does he play a bee? Is it a children’s show?

  7. RocketMerry says:

    Can’t she be alone for five friggin’ seconds?!!
    Nobody needs to be in a relationship the minute they end a marriage, good grief! Because then they’d end up picking up whatever (whoever) comes by first. Right, Jenny?

  8. Snowflake says:

    but really, how is this any different from the older famous guys and their younger women? like alec baldwin and his yoga teacher gf. you know they’re getting benefits too. she wants to buy herself a man, let her. she wants to be stupid, it’s her choice. that’s one of the perks of being rich, you can buy what you want, including people.

    • Rhea says:

      The difference is most rich and famous older guy understand that it’s a mutual benefit kinda relationship. Most of them do not take the relationship seriously. The girl got the bling and money, while the man got a beautiful date to show off and boost their ego. And I don’t remember Baldwin marrying more than once.

      With J.lo, I’m not sure. She jumps right away to the next relationship, making it serious, when she just barely got out from the previous one. This time there are children involved. She just don’t give her children enough time to get used to the idea that their parent no longer together.

      Yes, a lot of guy do that too. But she is their mother. She’s carrying them nine months in her body. Surely she could spare her children some times before starting to introducing them with “bonus dad”? What happen if this relationship with Casper is not working? How many more “bonus dad” would it be?

      Is it any wonder why so many people got annoyed with her?

  9. Roma says:

    I will say it about older dudes who do this and I will say it about both JLo and Madonna: this kind of age/career disparity allows the older person to feel youthful, while having total control.

    Blah.

  10. Jayna says:

    She’s not a complete dummy. This will be great publicity for her tour if it comes out before or during the tour. I don’t know if that’s the case. Secondly, she will own and produce it; thus, make money off of it. Kind of trying to become Ryan Seactest, producing reality shows. She and Marc produced the most recent talent reality show. Caspar will
    only get a flat rate per show. So she’s the one making money off the show. Who is using who?

    BUT she has always been smart in business,
    dumb in her relationships. I have a friend like
    her. Gorgeous, captain of an airline, but beyond stupid in her choices in men.

    • polk8dot says:

      @ ‘..Casper will only get a flat rate per show. So she’s the one making money off the show. Who is using who?’

      Are you sure that’s going to be the exact division of the spoils? Because judging from the way he has her wrapped around his, er, er, ‘middle finger’, I totally see her giving him producing, scripting, and ‘starring’ credits. He’ll make at least as much on this show as she will – after all she’s not putting any of her own money into it, she got Oxygen to fund it. What happened to that channel, BTW?

  11. Marjalane says:

    Casper the friendly boytoy probably can’t believe his luck- He needs to get her pregnant fast so he can complete his morph into Kfed 2.0!

  12. QQ says:

    She is just embarrasing!! What is wrong with staying single then properly vetting some gainfully employed non entertainment or at best producer type dude that doesnt have to have allowance money laundered as a “gig” and in adition to that can, you know, treat you right and shit?!

  13. Talie says:

    Jesus, the sex must be mind-blowing.

  14. Chatcat says:

    Kaiser…”It’s actually not the disparity in ages that bothers me. It’s the disparity in the careers, their life stories, their goals, their ambitions, their money-making prospects.”

    I agree it’s not the amount of years but the amount of life lived. Fast foward 10 years and he is 35 and she is 53 and it evens things out a bit. I am referring in “general” here.

    Now as it pertains to JLo…I think she is lacking something…whether it is IQ or a moral compass I am not sure, but clearly she “still hasn’t found what I’m looking for” and I don’t think she ever will…she doesn’t know what “it” is.

  15. Birdie says:

    Did you see his interview with E! ? He sounds like a dumb teenager, very high voice. I am very shocked how JLo lets this all happen and how dumb she really is.

  16. marybeth18 says:

    She bounces between two types of men- the guys who are very successful, have big egos, and don’t bow down and worship her (Diddy, Affleck, Anthony). Those relationships don’t last because those guys have too much going on to let her direct every move they make.

    Then she goes for the sweet, basic guys (she likes the backup dancers) who don’t have much going on in their lives and drop everything to worship her 24/7. Those relationships don’t last because those guys have nothing going on and let her direct every move they make, and she gets bored.

    She’ll marry this one, and divorce him within 18 months. Hopefully she’s smart enough to at least get a prenup/not have a baby with him.

  17. grabbyhands says:

    I’m not sure who I think is dumber-her or Oxygen.

  18. jess says:

    As long as Jennifers been in the spot light I dont think shes ever been single. In fact, I think shes either been married or engaged to every guy she has been with. Im sure she will marry this guy and within a year after they marry she will get divorced.

    • Lu says:

      Jennifer dated one guy from the time she was 15 to 25 years old.

      She MARRIED Ojani (a waiter)…DATED Diddy….MARRIED Cris…and was ENGAGED to Ben.

      Initially it really does seem like bad luck to me. That was all over the span of 10-15yrs. She knew Ojani for less than a year. Diddy was the first industry guy she ever dated. Cris was a back up dancer after Diddy’s neglect, cheating and gangster life scared her away. Lastly, Ben was the PRINCE CHARMING after those guys. Like her behind the music special said “She though she had found her prince.”

      If it weren’t for that history and that break up with Ben she wouldn’t have married Marc. m

      Marc is pretty bad even compared to Diddy (who is just emotionally stunted), Marc was the chauvinst and controlling. That’s not PR, it’s true.

      Now, Casper is her trying to go back to the beginning of her life.

      three marriages, one engagment and a couple of boyfriends. Not too bad. It would be better if she was only married once or twice and had never been engaged to Ben. She has a passionate life but not necessarily all that diffrent from some other people (famous or not) she has just been in the spotlight more and her relationships have been more intense or took place in a kind of whirlwind.

      Interesting….

      • Jezi says:

        How about being single for a minute? I mean seriously, can she focus on just herself and her children first before jumping into a new relationship? The dust hadn’t even settled yet from her 7 year relationship with Mark and she was already trotting this guy out with her kids. Maybe she chooses the wrong guys because she doesn’t breathe and work on herself first.

  19. barbi says:

    Maybe after being in such a controlling marriage with skinny man, she wants to be the one calling the shots? Maybe she wants be the one controlling? :-)

  20. BLOGAHOLIC says:

    Some people never learn and j lo is one of them. Can’t you be without a man for 5 mins?

  21. Lindy says:

    So, honestly… if she is paying him to be with her, he is pretty much a prostitute, right? Call it an allowance if you want, sure, but basically he gets money to spend time with her. And since no one thinks they sleep in separate rooms, he’s rendering a service. For which he gets paid. She has hired a boyfriend. Who is a prostitute. She is gross.

  22. tru tru says:

    the thing is…she has been in this spot before w/Chris Judd and her first husband..

    she was calling the shots and it still went sour.

    that lil dude must have some serious “game”…boosts her ego amd then turns around and tells her–he nds to feel like a man and be a millionaire too.

    heehee

  23. Sabrine says:

    I will give her the benefit of the doubt here and say she’s surely got enough brains to not marry him. Otherwise, who cares? She enjoys him – that’s all that matters. She can afford to indulge him and it probably gives her a lot of pleasure. I have zero problem with any woman dating whatever man she pleases regardless of age. It’s her deal, nobody else’s. She looks incredibly happy with him and that’s what counts.

  24. Jezi says:

    Has anyone seen the movie “Honey 2″? I am even ashamed to admit that I did see it but he’s in that movie and wow, just wow. I still don’t get the appeal. He’s a good dancer but that’s as far as I would go with that one.

  25. Susie Q says:

    I thought Oxygen hit bottom when they gave the has been parisite hilton a show…this is truly hitting bottom now.

  26. maria says:

    well they haven’t been together ‘that’ long, so the sex is still great, I get that…but what about when those endorphins wear off?.. they will look across at each other and talk about what?… it would be different if he was 35, but a man in his 20s just isn’t going to have grown enough to be a great conversationalist. and seriously, he truly is not attractive whatsoever. I know looks are in the eye of the beholder but still..ugh…….

    • sallyreo says:

      She will just replace him. She is a player, if she needs a toy, she just buys a toy. Do you think she cares what we think, of course not.

      IMO, she is free to do whatever she wants, with who she wants, she can afford it.

      • maria says:

        yes, you’re right…. just too bad that she doesn’t seem to think to the future on how it affects her two small children. selfish behaviour..all about what ‘she’ wants, not what is best to model for the children as well as them probably growing closer to him then having to lose another man in their lives. that always makes me angry..that people can be so flippant about that. :-(

  27. ldybug says:

    She seems happy, he doesn’t come off as anything but enamored to me. Yes he’s lucky to be with a wealthy woman, but that doesn’t mean he can’t also be crazy about her and vice versa. She’s hot, she seems very upbeat/optimistic and she seems very young at heart. I am going to go out on a limb and say, they probably really like and maybe even love each other. Relationships with people of the same age don’t seem any more likely to work out among celebrities, so I don’t see any reason she shouldn’t give him a shot, at her and and success. People do nice things for the ones they love.

  28. Orange Cone says:

    “…First comes the allowance, then comes the job title, then comes the reality show. And then comes marriage. Because Jennifer really is that dumb.”

    YAAAASSSS!

  29. Playlist says:

    JLo is a Narcissist. She doesn’t want a private life. Everything has to be for public attention and she needs it constantly. Her children are going to be ruled by a stage mother from hell even before they finish grade school. She’s already practicing on her 25 year old Boy Toy. He’s just what she wanted to get her more attention in the spotlight. It connects to her to a younger audience which is her target market. Casper is just the tool of the moment. He’ll get replaced when his PR draw wears off. Of course she’ll marry him first, because nothing spells attention more than a marriage ceremony.

    Money, Fame, and Love are intertwined for her and she couldn’t separate them if her life depended on it. The only reason she doesn’t have a meltdown from alone time in the bathroom is because she’s too busy primping and planning for her next grand entrance.

  30. FingerBinger says:

    As long as she doesn’t marry him,get pregnant by him, or isn’t having her children call him daddy,poppa,etc, she can do what she wants. This should have been a two month fling and that’s it. The way she seems to be fawning over this guy is making her look really foolish, I’m almost embarrassed for her. He looks so smug, like the cat that ate the canary. He looks that the kind of fellow that would right a tell-all or sue for palimony.

  31. sitting quietly says:

    he will break her heart. the older one of the pair usually gets hurt. one day he’ll realize he needs to be with someone his own age. but the heart wants what the heart wants.

  32. skuddles says:

    Yeesh, can you imagine how much power she has in that relationship? Over him? She’s turned him into her eternally grateful minion…

  33. Kosmos says:

    JLo “loves” the dancer types big time, so I’m not surprised that she had a thing with Casper, but will it last? At some point, they will probably disagree and since she holds the purse strings, it might be a problem. She’s probably trying to help him build a career, but she controls everything. More often, it’s the other way around for women when the older man helps out with her career, as long as they have a relationship on his terms, that is.

  34. Beatriz says:

    Yes Kaiser, Jennifer is indeed that dumb. She is business-savvy and a hustler, but that doesn’t mean she’s smart (by that logic Kim Kardashian would be a genius).

  35. polk8dot says:

    Her neediness is soooo pathetic! Woman, you’re mid 40s. Time to get some self-respect, and stop being a fricking floor mat for all the loser douches aroung you. Do you seriously think he will stick around when your star has dimmed? Which it will pretty soon, considering your ‘thing’ is being sexy, young and hip, and it is kind of F-ing hard to pull it off in you mid-50s, even if you’re Madonna. And you’re not Madonna, hon…

  36. mememe says:

    Making all the wrong moves at 42. Sad.

  37. Sassigurl1 says:

    I think she is smart. he is bought and paid for and as long as she holds the purse strings, he will keep “dancing” like a muppet. That is until he becomes bored with his suga momma.

  38. SJI says:

    She has THE worst taste in men. Her recent ex husband looks like a skeleton, and this guy is just fug personified.
