New Friends?

by Latin Gossip Staff on 11.18.2006 - Celebrity Weddings, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony

Jlo and marc.jpgA couple of days ago, we questioned if Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were that close with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Well, it appears that they are not, which is kind of strange considering that they got invited to the wedding.

At the dinner last night in Rome, Marc reportedly said:

“To life, to the occasion, and to new friends.”

Out theory is that Tom and Katie see Jennifer and Marc as the Latin power couple (and David and Victoria Beckham as the Euro power couple) and they want to be the American version of them, hence their presence at the wedding.

Puskas.jpgLegendary soccer player Ferenc Puskas has died from complications of pneumonia after battling a long illness. He was 79.

Even though he was Hungarian, he was loved in Latin America. He brought his own style to soccer and was a star player in Real Madrid.

Our condolences go out to his family.
