Jennifer Lopez doesn't know if she'll marry again

It's been rumored that Jennifer Lopez has been getting cozy with 20-something dancer Casper Smart, but the "Idol" judge told Matt Lauer on "Today" that she's still recovering from her recent split.

Lopez, who separated from husband Marc Anthony last July, told Lauer that the change in her personal life is "still fresh," adding that she doesn't know if she'll ever marry again. "It's not the time to think about [marriage] yet."

What is on her mind is her new show with her estranged spouse, "Q'Viva! The Chosen," which she continued to work on with Anthony following their separation.

"Marc and I were friends before we got married, we were friends for years," Lopez explained to Lauer of her professional relationship with Anthony, with whom she also has twins Max and Emme.

"We always loved each other and we always worked together. So, it wasn't an unnatural thing for us. It's not like he's not going to be in my life, we have kids together - he's always going to be in my life. [Q'Viva!'] really is a passion project for us," she continued.

Of course, it wasn't always easy - "we have those moments, we're human," the 42-year-old star said. "But at the end of the day, there's real love there, and there's a family there, and that comes first. At the end of the day, we also really love this project."

As for the divorce, Lopez added that she's already said it all in the September issue of Vanity Fair. At the time, Lopez mused that there are times when "we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves...To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.”

Fairly vague, but that's all fans are going to get.

"Everything I wanted to say about the divorce, I said in that article," Lopez told Lauer. "It really is our personal life. We have children. We're working together, we have a lot of love for each other, and we're human. It's not the easiest thing in the world, but I think we handle it with a lot of grace and a lot of caring and a lot of love."

    Plain and simple.. People don't have meatnl issues because there is a lack of Prozac in their brain..Prescription medications may help with a few symptoms but the problem that they are address are still there. Medications have never been intended to cure but rather generate revenue by the patient being forced to take a medication for life.This also comes at the cost of countless side effects. Sure you may not been feeling the effects of an emotional disorder.. But have you prepared yourself for that kidney transplant your going to need in a few years because of the medication side effects?And guess what? Your going to pay for that too or die..Look for alternatives to prescription medications . Hospitals, doctors, pharmaceutical companies don't make any money from healthy people.Its not in their best interested to make you well.Greed rules all.. And your foolish to think it don't rule your health-care professionals too.

    Who cares?! With all the real issues that concern Hispanics on a election year, why would I or any other Hispanic with an ounce of intellect, care what this dumb diva who goes to the Great Lakes, looks out the window, and says "Oh, look, how pretty, the ocean," thinks, feels, or F_ _ _ _? Hispanics, Republicans are trying to get back the White House so they can finish screwing us over. Their racist agenda is already affecting our children in Alabama, Arizona, New Mexico, the Carolinas. Let's get off our butts, stop watching American Idol, and get involved. We must stop Radical Republicans, and J-Lo's ass from distracting us from the prize: Freedom and equality for Hispanics in America.

    Another WHO CARES? for me. If J-Ho wants another kid then she'd be stupid to do the same thing and marry the sperm donor. Just do it the way everyone else does, use Craigslist for a hook-up. Not as good for publicity but the quality is on par with her past donors.

      I know that healing is polsibse .but I don't understand why the good things keep going away .why when someone is working so hard to heal, is the rug pulled out from under them .only to have to possibly start all over .its hard to think that there will ever be a time when I am truly happy with myself ..my whole self Do I again shove it all to that place in my head .only for it to surface again .I am scared it will all come back with a vengence .if I don't continue with the healing .if I don't do this now and I stuff it all back in ..what is my life really going to be about .I don't want to put that fake smile back on .pretend everything is perfect .pretend I know what to do.How did Rheanna learn to love her body again? Even with the things I do, I stand there thinking that all those people see how fat and ugly I am. Maybe not on the inside but on the outside. I feel like everyone sees the scars from the damage done, that they see me as a slob. I still continue to do things to make me stronger but cannot seem to get past how I see myself. Even with all the progress I have made, I am so scared I will never get to the point where I am truly happy. I am, in my eyes, so unattractive, I will never find someone who will truly love me for who I am.
