Jennifer Lopez Talks Exes Ben Affleck, Cris Judd, Casper Smart, Mariah Carey Feud on Watch What Happens Live
We've dreamed of this night for so long! Jennifer Lopez graced the Bravo Clubhouse for the Thursday, June 19 installment of Watch What Happens Live, and host Andy Cohen grilled the superstar on her storied love life, booty and alleged feuds. Promoting her album A.K.A., Lopez was game when Cohen asked about arguably her most famous ex, Ben Affleck—and whether the Hollywood hunk's fashion transformation was her doing. "Did you dress him when you were dating him?" Cohen asked.
"I did kind of like say, 'You need to be, you know, you're a movie star! You should wear a suit, you know? You should do this with your hair," Lopez, 44, said of Affleck, 41, who ditched his frat-boy-esque wardrobe during his mid-aughts relationship with her. "For sure! I mean, I do that and, by the way, they do that...guys do that to girls too. Like, 'I like that dress better than the other dress.'"
Affleck was "into it," she added of her former fiance. "He didn't do anything he didn't want to do . . . He had some good fashion moments when he was with me."
Cohen also asked the "I Luh Ya Papi" singer whether dancers, singers or actors are better in bed. "I have to say that in my limited experience, I would have to say anybody involved in music," she offered. "So I would say singers and dancers. I forgot my card! Dammit! I could've pleaded the fifth!"
Lopez, of course, has had at least two notable relationships with dancers: ex-husband Cris Judd and Casper Smart, with whom she split earlier this month.
"The best and worst part? I mean, there's no bad part to it, really. It's not about the fact that they're a dancer or not a dancer," the former American Idol juddge said. "I've dated two dancers. One, I had a brief marriage with, Cris Judd, who is an amazing person and whom I love, and then Beau [Smart], who we just broke up, who I love as well. He's a good friend."

She also has much love—from afar—for one Mariah Carey, alleged feud or not. "I don't have a feud against her at all," the mother of twins Emme and Max said. "I know from back in the day, I've read things that she's said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met. Like, we don't know each other. I think it's kind of from word of mouth of things that have happened in the past that I'm not really aware of. But I don't know."
She added of the Elusive Chanteuse: "I would love to meet her and I would love to be friends with her. I think she's incredibly talented and I've always been a fan of hers. 'My All' is one of my favorite songs of all time. I just love her. It saddens me to hear anything that's negative because I'm a fan of hers."
