Joy Behar, co-host of The View, asked Jennifer Lopez whether she would be “violent” or “rational” if she discovered a partner had been having an affair for months.
Jennifer Lopez is putting herself in the shoes of Ariana Madix from Vanderpump Rules.
Lopez chimed in on the turmoil surrounding Madix’s ex Tom Sandoval’s romance Raquel Leviss, which ended the Bravo couple’s nine-year relationship, on Thursday’s edition of The View.
When co-host Whoopi Goldberg inquired whether Lopez watches the Bravo program, Lopez responded she doesn’t “watch it regularly or anything” but is acquainted with it.
Joy Behar then asked what she would do if “your friend was getting with your husband.”
“Oh! Is this what’s going on on Vanderpump Rules? “Jesus Christ,” Lopez, 53, replied.
“That’s what’s going on,” Sunny Hostin stated. And they’ve been together for ten years.”
“Would you be violent or rational?” Behar inquired.
“I think I’d just leave.” “Just walk out,” Lopez said. “You know everything there is to know.” What more do you need to know? That’s all the information you need.”
The remark came just days after the VPR season 10 finale teaser revealed how Madix, 37, reacted after learning about Sandoval and Leviss’ romance in early March.
In the video, Madix and the co-owner of Schwartz & Sandy’s, 40, have a furious argument, with him telling her, “Me and Raquel became like really good friends.”
“I don’t give an f— about f—ing Raquel,” an enraged Madix replies. “Your friendship is f—ing bulls—.”
“Not at all!” Sandoval responds, saying, “You know everything.”
Madix later tells her ex, “I regret ever loving you.”
Sandoval and Madix split up on March 3, according to sources. According to a source, the two “had been having problems for a while,” but Madix’s months-long romance with Leviss, 28, was “the final straw.”
“She’s put up with a lot over the years, but she won’t sit back and be disrespected this way,” the source said.
Sandoval and Leviss both apologized publicly to Madix, who released her own message on Instagram on March 16.
“I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for the outpouring of love and support I’ve received from friends, family, and strangers,” she wrote. “When I felt like I couldn’t stand it any longer, you all gave me the strength to keep going and saw me through my darkest hours.” To say I’m sad and shattered would be an understatement.”
Noting that she was still “reeling from this betrayal on so many levels,” she added an oblique warning: “whatever doesn’t kill me better run.”
