Washington: Marc Anthony has insisted that the awkward moment on the TV talent show, when Jennifer Lopez called her ex ‘a pig’, was just the work of “clever producers”.
In an episode of Q’Viva! The Chosen, which aired on Saturday in America, Lopez apparently made the comment after her former husband referred to two sexy dancers on the show as his “honeys”.
After the embarrassed moment, Lopez seemingly laughed off her remark but Anthony looked annoyed and unhappy.
However, in an interview with news show Entertainment Tonight, he maintained that the TV moment wasn’t quite as it appears.
“You have to realise that we filmed for months and so there is a lot of footage and you can cut things all kinds of ways... We have some clever producers... that have a great sense of humour,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
The stars parted ways last summer (Jul11) and both have since found love with new partners but they remain friends and business accomplices on the show they helped create before the break-up.
