Sex Tapes from J. Lo’s First Marriage Won’t Be in a Movie For Now

Jenny From The Block: A judge has blocked Jennifer Lopez’s former husband of eleven months, Ojani Noa, from distributing a movie that includes footage of the couple “in sexual situations” on their honeymoon. The former couple went to court before when Noa attempted to publish a tell-all book about their relationship in violation of a legal agreement not to share private information. The movie would be called How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The JLo and Ojani Noa Story. [Reuters]

Stuff My Dad Says: Justin Halpern, the creator of the Twitter feed “Shit My Dad Says,” has watched his father’s aphorisms grow from something he posted on the Internet to make friends laugh to a huge success with 700,000-plus followers. And now, with Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick as executive producers, it’s becoming a television show. Halpern’s feed follows in the footsteps of the website “TextsFromLastNight,” which is becoming a Fox comedy. And of course the name will have to change. [THR]

Amorosa: Omarosa, possibly the most cutthroat Apprentice contestant of all time, will appear in her own reality show, Omarosa’s Ultimate Merger, which will follow her as she searches for the perfect mate. She’ll start with twelve hopefuls and then eliminate them Bachelorette-style. Donald Trump will be there along the way to give her advice and work as executive producer for the show, which will be filmed in one of his Las Vegas hotels and carried on TV One, Comcast’s network aimed at African American viewers.

Apocalypse Now and Again: The movie doesn’t have a name, but Fox is making it. It’s about some survivors at the end of the world and how they got there. It might have Len Wiseman, who directed Live Free or Die Hard, as a director and producer. It might be something like Roland Emmerich’s 2012 or its sequel. [THR]

Grounded Pilot: Fox has decided to kill the television comedy formerly known as The Rednecks & Romeos, a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age show from That ’70s Show co-creator Mark Brazill. The show made it through auditions in front of a test audience, but something wasn’t right. Or a lot of things. [THR]
