Who wants to see @jlo + @miloventimiglia in #second act? 😍😍😍 #jlo has a bday coming up

Jennifer Lopez made her way back to rom-com world and we can not be more excited!

Thursday, STX Entertainment released the trailer for Second Act, staring the one and only rom-com queen.

Lopez stars as a big-box store employee in her forties, who after her BFF’s son helps create her a new identity filled with fake degrees and photo shopped pictures with the president, lands an interview for her dream job.

After landing the job of a lifetime, she continues to use her street smarts to excel in keeping up with her double life.

“Her talent was real. Her resume was not”

Sounds familiar? Think of Younger, but with Vanessa Hudgens as Hillary Duff (co-worker), and her real-life BFF Leah Remini as her tough-loving, on-screen best friend.

Not to mention, her on screen husband is hottie from This is Us‘, Milo Ventimiglia! Such a fun cast!

Still re-living @OnYourFeetbway @Pantages from last night! @ChristieElaine as @GloriaEstefan @martinezmau as @emilioestefan 🌟🌟🌟

Summer time = rattle snake season!! They’ll squiggle into anything, even pool noodles! 🐍😲

Yesterday, my son and I went hiking at Runyon Canyon for a little while. It was so hot yesterday! Just as we entered, we noticed extra rattle snake warning signs posted up. The entire time I was keeping a close eye for anything resembling a squiggly snake. The fact of the matter is that snakes are popping out to escape the heat. So, really you should always be on guard.

A video gone viral (below) shows a snake in between a cars hood and windshield! Rattlesnakes are also hiding inside pool noodles! The lesson here: shake your noodle, check your windshield and watch out for those rattlers!

Congrats to the Hollywood #walkoffame class of 2019! 🌟 @walkoffamestar @wofstargirl
