*Pop star and actress Jennifer Lopez has been through the pits of love and marriage, more than once.
After splitting with Marc Anthony, JLo admits divorce is tough but healing is possible.
She starred in “Parker,” playing the role of a woman struggling through a painful divorce. The role resonated with her in a healing way.
“The timing was crazy because when they offered me the role it hadn’t happened. So I was kind of just thinking about the character and that she was at the worst time in her life. But, when we actually started shooting the film, I was in the worst time of my life, one of the worst times in my life. You know, going through my own divorce. Jennifer continues, “When you have kids and you go through something like that, you can’t show them what you’re going through, you know. So you have to be so strong all day…and you know when you’re working you have to be professional all day…But, in front of the camera, I got to act like how I felt, you know so it was like therapy for me.”
She’s currently dating sweetheart Casper Smart. Although she’d like to be married one day and live that “fantasy,” she explains that when she met her beau, it was about having fun and enjoying life.
*Eddie Murphy and his new blonde boo were spotted out in Beverly Hills, feeding their caffeine addiction, picking up coffee from Coffee Bean. These two have been dating, publicly since September.

*Despite her chocolate beauty and admirable booty, Serena Williams admits that even she has issues with dating the right men.
After ending her relationships with Common and Drake, the tennis player is a bit jaded by relationships altogether and is considering staying away from them for the next 10 years.
“I have given up on dating,” she confessed to Celebuzz. ”It just hasn’t worked out well for me. I’m a really emotional person. I give my all and everything. I do make mistakes — like every human does — but the last relationship just was too much of a heartbreak for me. I just can’t go through that anymore. It was hard.”
So the hard work that seems to reap the most rewards, tennis, is what she’ll focus on from now on.
But that’s not her only problem. The tennis player suffers from insomnia.
She says it’s because she’s on a natural high. But the lack of sleep doesn’t immediately bother her she explained. However, she understands it could turn into a health issue further down the line.
“A lot of people underrate sleep. You need a certain amount of sleep to rejuvenate your body, to rejuvenate the cells and to perform, whether you’re going to school or whether you’re playing a professional sport,” she said. “I’m not a sleeper. I’m kind of like my dad, never slept much. I can really go off of five hours of sleep, but obviously that’s not healthy.”
