Then how will it be convincing at all? I mean, we all know that the miners that were trapped looked like Antonio Banderas and Martin Sheen, so of course their wives looked like J-Lo.


Surely everyone knows that Chilean miners keep their wives in long, expensive extensions, designer clothes, long flashy manicures, 4-inch Jimmy Choo heels, and extremely expensive make-up and plastic surgery. Luckily J-Lo is such a talented actress, she was going to dress down enough to accomodate that look.


Who could they possibly get now to convey that "authentic miner's wife" look? Only a select few drag queens could pull that off, yknow.

LOL.  Yeah, JLo has "scheduling conflicts" because she's got nothing going on in her career.  She's going back to judge "American Idol" because her music career has stiffed, and her acting career has stalled.  She's got nothing else to do besides sit and judge more talented singers than her, which in her case is...EVERYBODY ELSE!!!

This POOR excuse for an entertainer CAN'T ACT anyways!!!!!   SHe's just a big waste of time, breath, and effort.  This is just a weak effort of writers/attention getters to keep them (and whatever worthless person in the LIME-LIGHT) including this sorta stupid web thingy, and persons like myself.... responding to this whole worthlessness.


Thank goodness that I live in a country where I am able to still respond witn an opinion!  FOR NOW.
