Jennifer Lopez signs on as an Oscar presenter: will she bring Casper Smart?

I cannot even begin to describe how hilarious I find it that Casper Smart has defenders. Like, there are people who are actively trying to convince me (and the world) that Casper Smart is something other than a facially-challenged, back-up dancing errand boy who latched onto a diva who has issues with being alone. Anyway, these are new photos of Jennifer Lopez and Casper yesterday in NYC. Jennifer did the Today Show and The Late Show with David Letterman. Casper came to both tapings because… what else does he have to do? He’s the Stacy Keibler of purse-holders.

I read yesterday that Jennifer Lopez has just been announced as a presenter for this year’s OscarsLainey at LaineyGossip was complaining about it because this likely means that Jennifer will bring Casper as her official Oscar date. Really, though, why is that NOT something to look forward to? It’s not like Jennifer doesn’t have a history of bringing whoever she’s attached to onto the red carpet. Cris Judd, anyone? Cris Judd made it to the Oscars – that was the year Jennifer wore see-through Chanel and Oscar producers ordered the cameras to only shoot her from the shoulders up. And that was back when Jennifer was in the prime of her relevance too – what will this year bring? I’m sure it will be hideous. I’m sure the dress will be epic and “show stopping” and I’m sure Casper will be cleaned up and rammed into a tux, and he’ll share a moment with George Clooney. It will be awesome.

PS… what’s with all the fur? Jennifer has always worn fur, sure, but she did two outfits yesterday that were fur-based. Yes, that’s a fur-trim ON THE SKIRT.

    To the Oscars? She’d bring a hobo just to be photographed. Look, she brought Skeletor to all those red carpets. Jus’ sayin’.

  2. Agnes says:

    OF COURSE she’ll bring her paid-for man child.

  3. originalone says:

    In his cute little poodle tuxedo, Casper will be giving hanging-on-to-her-coattails a new meaning. 😉

  4. ZigZagZoey says:

    She makes me sick, and I truly cannot see what the hell she sees in that UGLY UGLY new BOYfriend. He is so gross.Never ever thought I would say this, but I would so much prefer Mark A to that idiot.

    • podzol says:

      Blasphemous!! Choosing Marc Anthony by default!

      But oh-so-true :). This is how budget this dude is. He makes us choose MARC EFFIN ANTHONY as the “better” choice. I officially disdain you, J.Lo.

      • Petunia says:

        My main gripe with Skeletor was his overly possessive behavior but JLo knew it and must have been okay with it initially at least. He’s not my thing in the looks department, especially when he lost all of that weight but he did seem to love her and the children AND he had his own career. So yeah, he had more going for him than Casper. Casper really seems like a paid-for hanger on, which reeks of desperation. You can’t tell me that a woman as beautiful as JLo wouldn’t be able to get a better-quality dude.

    • Thea says:

      Mentally he is inferior to her and she likes that. She can call the shots. And she is dumber than dirt so can you imagine she has to lead him around. A real man, and a man with a career and some intelligence will not stick with her. Look at Brad Cooper. He needed a beard and couldnt even stomach her.

  5. sister says:

    A mess. We can’t accuse her of being calculating in her choice of guy. Hell, I respect that more than actresses who play the beard game.

    • Petunia says:

      I think I’d rather be the beard of a handsome, well-respected actor than to have a child-man gold-digger as my “boytoyfriend.”

  6. lisa says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying this. But.
    I miss Marc!
    I can’t with Casper’s face!

  7. The Truth Fairy says:

    The real question is WHY is she presenting at the Oscars. After Madonna, she is the worst actress of all time!!

  8. Asli says:

    Oh yay! Little Casper gets to wear a tux. Jen better bring a bib and make sure he doesn’t get stains on it. Overenthusiantic manchildren do tend to spill excessively.

  9. Marjalane says:

    Hey- Oscar Barbie Keibler comes off like the Queen of Hollywood next to this little toad!

  10. VintageBum says:

    Ho please, you are not fooling anyone!lol But honestly, Casper(ironically named after a pre adolescent ghost?lol) will be gone soon enough and a tell-all book shall be in the making!

    Speaking of tell-alls! It’s my birthday and I asked for one thing, ‘Full Service’ by Scotty Bowers! *shreaks like teenager* It is going to be a delicious read! 🙂

  11. T.C. says:

    The academy people are clueless about which women we want to see on the show. Last year they got Anne Hathaway to host and now this year they are throwing JLo as a prize of sorts. Try giving us Emma Stone instead!

    • Petunia says:

      Thank you. Anne Hathaway and JLo are from the “oh, please!” portion of the closet. I’m already tired of JLo being foisted on us again, as she was for years and years.

  12. dorothy says:

    I know it’s supposed to be liberating, but as a woman JoLo dating a “kid” just looks desperate and insecure. She’s a grown woman with children and lot’s of life experience, what could they possibly have in common??

  13. Girl says:

    She is such an asshole. And the fur detailing on that skirt/coat/whatever is horrifyly bad. Eww.

  14. Bite me says:

    Her sexy face is killing me

  15. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    This is SO embarrassing. She looks like the mother of this special needs teenager – poor boy still can’t tie his timbs.

  16. Cerulean says:

    The two of them are just a big joke. She looks outdated and disgusting in her dead animal clothes and he looks like a ventriloquist’s dummy.
    Wonder if he will sit on her lap.

  17. Nev says:

    this is so INTERESTING.

    if he was as good-looking as FASSBENDER or AUBRY he would get a PASS right?

    so what if he doesn’t look like a KEN DOLL???? it’s her boyfriend…Marc has a girlfriend/lover so why shouldn’t she?

    and WHO CARES if he is younger or not rich? are you all dating or with someone who is on your level in looks and status?!!!!

    have fun Jennifer…as long as he treats you good…WORK IT OUT!!!!!

    • Toot says:

      Very good post and I agree.

    • Cathy says:

      Yes as a matter of fact I do have someone on the same social status as I am. We’re both poor and we freely admit we’re rednecks…but we have fun. So you’re right as long as she’s happy that should be all that matters. But…we can’t help it, he’s a man/child who is ugly to boot.

    • Petunia says:

      The way I see it is this: there is disparity based upon his tender young years. I’d think it okay if he was 30 or so. There’s disparity in achievement. There’s also disparity in social status. I think all of these elements rolled up make for a bad match. I see gold digger in him. I see desperation in her. I don’t care that he’s unattractive to me. That’s her business. But I do think he’s making her into a laughing stock due to all of the disparities, and that’s not good.

      For the record, I think Skeletor looks silly for latching onto a young girl in a “tit-for-tat” move. I think he’s got the same issues going on with her as JLo has with her dude. Not good.

    • Tapioca says:

      Obviously she can date whoever she likes, BUT…

      …if you have to pay a short ugly dude A SALARY to spend time with you, then you’re hardly radiating the kind of “cougar” sexiness that I guess she’s aiming for, and he’s no longer a “boyfriend”, he’s a gigolo!

      Hell, at least when the older gentlemen in Hollywood pay for prostitutes companions to accompany them to events, they generally go for attractive ones.

      • Nev says:

        I see your points of view…but how do we know she is unaware of this?

        she wants to have some casual sex and get through her divorce…so what???

        guys do it all the time.

        we are assuming she’s clueless…

  18. Jaded says:

    Jeebuz, bringing him to the Oscars is about as demeaning as bringing Jethro Clampett to dinner with the royals. What on earth is she smoking??? Why is she dumpster diving???

    • Petunia says:

      You know who seriously reminds me of Jethro Clampett? Kris Humphries. I’d never take him out anywhere because he acts like a hillbilly. And he looks like Jethro too. Eek.

  19. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Caspar is clearly interim dong. He should enjoy all the excitement while he can.

  20. cprincess says:

    Marc Anthony was and is a HUGE star in the latin world and is way more talented that she could ever be…
    Comparing this toddler to him is ridiculous.
    SHe is beyond annoying although i do love the white fur!

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      ITA about Marc, he is truly talented and a huge star in Latin America. He may have needed JLo to cross over to the U.S. but he was already doing fine. I always thought JLo married him to procreate with so her kids would have the “talent” genes, and then she would divorce him.

      • Trice says:

        He “crossed over” long before his JLo days. The first english language album was When the Night is Over (1993) with the huge hit “Walk Away.” The second was 1999 with the even bigger hits “My Baby You” and “I Need to Know”. He started singing in English, not Spanish. However he’s been hugely successful in Latin America, South America, Central America, Europe and the Caribbean, while moderately successful in North America.

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        “I Need to Know”

        I LOVE that song!

  21. jasperkitty says:

    Just another KFED! Ick!

    • Petunia says:

      Yeah but KFed was HOT back in the day! HOT! Plus he was the same age as Britney. If he had been a better and more responsible husband at the time, it might have worked out okay, despite the disparity in social status.

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      “Just another KFED! Ick!”


  22. Quest says:

    Acadamy reps for the Oscars are getting desperate huh?

  23. lucy2 says:

    For a pretty woman, she has strange taste in men. None of her husbands/boyfriends have been that attractive – Marc? This guy? Puff Doodle? Ben Affleck was probably the best looking one, and he looked ridiculous when he was with her.

    Ugh to the fur and to the idea of her being presenting at the Oscars. She’s not even really acting anymore, why ask her?

    • Petunia says:

      I swear it, if you aged him and made him gaunt, he would look just like Skeletor.

    • podzol says:

      Puff DOODLE!! Hahahaha!
      Have you guys seen the interview MTV’s Horowitz did “with” Doodle post-Golden Globes, and he refuses to answer, letting Swizz Beatz (or however you spell that) answer on his behalf… what a joke of a man.

  24. Gal says:

    She’s taught him to do “the look” while being photographed. Funny.

  25. Petunia says:

    I cringe whenever I see JLo with Casper the Friendly Help. For one thing, he’s too young. If she had picked someone 30-ish that would have worked fine. As young as JLo looks (and she does!) she still looks like his mommy because he has the face of a 14-16 year old. Plus, he’s a backup dancer. Maybe if he was an established actor that would give him more leverage in the relationship. There’s just too much inequality in the relationship for it to be comfortable to outsiders. I’m just embarrassed for her when I see them together, and I’ll bet I’m not alone. She doesn’t strike me as the type to not care about her image, so I have to wonder if she doesn’t understand how desperate and silly it makes her look. I’m not against cougars and younger bf’s but as I’ve said above, this situation reeks of embarrassment.

  26. LeeLoo says:

    I want her to get back with Marc Anthony just so we don’t have to listen to about her dating this little douchebag.


  27. Ogechi says:

    JLO is so beautiful & has a stunning skin to die for, but I don’t get it with this boy! Well, I guess what’s important is her happiness. I feel sad that she is dating a boy but not the looks. I have noticed that she is glowing more & more everyday since she started dating Casper, I suspect that the boy does his bedroom work well. To hell with the looks if he makes her feel like a total woman. I must confess that she now looks 30years old, touch of a young man huh? Interesting.

  28. Jover says:

    Agree petunia and T.c. why, why, why, JHO’s narcissism and greed knows no bounds; this is the best they can do. THis will be hard to watch I guess more snack and bathroom breaks; Lalaland prides itself on being hip, cool, edgy, yada, yada, yada, and then they hire this tired product for the premier event; Hollywood truly is clueless, Did they not see JHO in that awful Fiat ad?

  29. Ron says:

    Why does she get invited to the Oscars?

  30. skuddles says:

    Man, where’s PETA when you need them??

    LOL! True diagnosis from Dr. Kaiser 🙂

    ” what else does he have to do? He’s the Stacy Keibler of purse-holders.”

    keep them coming, Kaiser! lmao!

  32. Steph says:

    tacky tacky tacky. Next thing you know, Kim K. and her siblings are all going to be invited to the Oscars. What ever happened to the exclusivity of being at the Oscars??

  33. Not my business but says:

    Poor J.lo she is going on to those of women who lower to a buying young escorts route. The Bradly denial must have hurt her big ego but what were she thinking? any guy who has a great year wouldn’t want to get in someone else mess like that. Don’t the guy hate the game. She must forget she is not the J.lo that she was in her prime.
    the sad Part is when I see a woman like that I say just saw a woman screaming I am OLD and it is true. Good luck though.

  34. paola says:

    JLo shame on you still wearing fur! I hope those baby seals killed for your jacket will hunt you in your dreams.

  35. aprayerforthewildatheart says:

    Everyone (except JLo) knows JLo is famous in spite of having no talent whatsoever, she can’t sing, she can’t act, she has always been the “budget” Salma Hayek.

    She’s also delusional about her “talent”.

    JLo 1998 on
    Salma:“We’re in two different realms. She’s a sexy bombshell and those are the kinds of roles she does. I do all kinds of different things. It makes me laugh when she says she got offered Selena, which was an outright lie. If that’s what she does to get herself publicity, then that’s her thing. Columbia offered me the choice of Fools Rush In or Anaconda, but I chose the fun B-movie because the Fools script wasn’t strong enough.” HAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Oh and Madonna, although I agree Madge can’t act…either…JLo 1998 on Madonna:
    “Do I think she’s a great performer? Yeah. Do I think she’s a great actress? No. Acting is what I do, so I’m harder on people when they say, ‘Oh, I can do that—I can act.’ I’m like, ‘Hey, don’t spit on my craft.’”…LOL @ her “craft”.

    So sick of her shenanigans, anything to get attention, the woman is certifiable, and beyond delusional.

    • paola says:

      I always thought she is a mediocre actress, mediocre singer, mediocre dancer with a huge ego. If she wasn’t pretty she’d probably be a saleswoman in some crappy shoe shop.

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        Yeah, JLo would be selling those Manolo Blahniks instead of wearing them, and still dating dorks like Casper! I think JLo likes “slumming”, you can take the girl out of the ghetto…

    • Asli says:

      LOL! Put Kate Bosworth and her ”blue blood” in there and we’ll have the Trio of Delusional. 🙂

    • paola says:

      Exactly, she would be selling those shoes lurching on them probably trying to steal a pair and the fact she keeps wearing fur proudly is really pissing me off, i really can’t stand people who wear fur, animals die to give their skin to this bitch and she has enough influence to actually give people advise on not wearing it.. and considering the fact that she probably wears those coats just once in her stupid life is pissing me off even more. JLO you better cash it all in now because there’s noooo way you’ll still be this rich and famous in 5 years time.
      Sorry usually i’m not a hater, but she’s really rubbing it in my face.

  36. Dana M says:

    I am truly disappointed in her choice of jump off. I really thought she was going to go the Selma Hayek route and try to land herself a billionaire businessman. I was wrong. Way way off in my prediction. I gave her too much credit. Even I would never date this Casper dude …gross!!! Undoubtedly, She must have some major issues.

  37. original sandy says:

    i won’t defend the guy, but i will say, i feel sad for him. as I’m sure he did not anticipate so much attention or negative remarks, or maybe he did, and went for it anyway, it must be weir finding yourself in a public fish bowl, dating someone famous like j-lo,..ok i guess i am defending him.. lol
