When news broke that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were filing for divorce, reactions ranged from devastated to ambivalent. But while the couple’s personal woes made headlines, behind the scenes in Hollywood there was some worry that the couple’s split would mean bad news for their joint ventures.

However, it seems whatever J. Lo and Marc are facing personally, the two are keeping their business plans on track.

XIX Entertainment, the production company behind the project confirmed the couple would still be moving forward with plans for a Latin version talent competition in the vein of “American Idol.” In a statement, the company announced:

“Q’Viva! is set to film this autumn in South America,” XIX Entertainment confirms in a statement. “Both Jennifer and Marc are committed to the Q’Viva! project and will work on it as planned. The show goes on!”

Latina’s editorial director Galina Espinoza says that keeping the plans in the works for the show makes good business sense for both Lopez and in particular, Anthony. In an interview with USA Today, she noted:

“Pretty much anywhere else, particularly Latin America, where they’ve been working on a reality show, he’s actually the better-known name. I don’t see that really going away.”

News of the couples split first made waves last Friday, when the two gave a statement to PEOPLE magazine. In it, Lopez and Anthony explained that they were ending their marriage after seven years together.

“We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved,” the statement continues, “and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”

The couple married in 2004. Lopez and Anthony are parents of the four-year-old twins Emme and Max.

    I never thought they made a good couple anyway. And JLo should just date since this is her third marriage and not get married again. If she do, she’ll be the next Liz Taylor.

  • She can’t seem to keep a relationship of any kind together. Hmmm…

    I must admit, I was a little surprised at this one. I knew that Jennifer and Ben Affleck would never work. Same goes for Jennifer and Puffy. But she and Marc actually seemed like they were kinda meant to be. Oh well. Whatever.

    I do agree with the earlier post that said that she needs to just date. I don’t think she has any real girlfriends who have told her that you don’t have to marry every guy that you think you love. Date a little. She seems like the type of chic who doesn’t know herself and feels like her identity has to be wrapped up in a man. I mean think about it, since she’s been famous, has she ever really been single? As soon as she gets married then divorced, she’ll date a guy for a year or less and then marry him.

    Okay, I’m putting too much thought into something that doesn’t even concern me! LOL!
