I have a confession. I am a diehard American Idol fan. As that makes me only one of over 30 million people, in this regard I am not very unique. But someone who is not so commonplace is Jennifer Lopez. In case you forgot to pay your cable bill, Ms. Lopez was the guest performer/mentor during Latin week on American Idol.
Supportive dialogue unfolded as J Lo coached the contestants, yet I am still reeling from her more personal confessions. For one, Jen disclosed that at her house they watch American Idol every week. Secondly, she professed her adoration for Beatboxer Blake Lewis. These revelations caught my attention because I had no idea that Jennifer Lopez and I had so much in common. Seriously, who knew? Just think about it. Every Tuesday and Wednesday when Jen and Marc are sitting on the couch with a bowl of popcorn viewing the American Idol gang, well so are DH and I! And when I am mesmerized during another one of Blake’s stellar performances, J Lo is swooning too.
It is just so surreal that she and I are so alike. Never in a million years would I have guessed it. But the secret is out, and our parallel lives are more than obvious. Seeing as we are practically sisters, I should give her a call this week ‘cause I’m certain she’ll want my banana bread recipe. And since we are so tight, maybe she can loan me that armful of silver bangles ‘cause dang they are hot!
