Ever since Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced they were seeking a divorce, speculation has swirled that Anthony cheated on the bootilicious pop star. In tabloids he’s been linked with everyone from a flight attendant to Eva Longoria and Jada Pinkett Smith. Now Anthony has broken his post-split silence and quashed those cheating rumors. In an interview with Nightline Anthony says the marriage did not end because of an affair. Rather, he said, “It was a realization on both our parts. It wasn't shocking. These things happen. It's a decision that we made jointly.” Anthony says he will “always love” his estranged wife and will continue to be very supportive of her career. The 42-year-old says he hopes J. Lo will be in his life for “many, many, many years” as they raise their three-year-old twins together. When asked about jumping back into the dating scene Anthony says he’s not ready just yet. He told Nightline to give him “two weeks.” [Nightline]

America’s Worst Drivers Are…

For the third straight year Washington D.C. has been named the city with America’s worst drivers. The nation’s capital came in last in the seventh annual America’s Best Drivers Report by Allstate. The report ranked the top 200 biggest cities in the United States on the likelihood and frequency of auto accidents. In D.C. drivers are likely to get into a car crash every five years. Drivers boast a 107 percent greater chance of getting into a fender bender than the average American. This is up 12 percent over last year. Other cities with horrible drivers include Baltimore, Los Angeles and Newark. Allstate named Fort Collins, Colorado as having the safest drivers in the United States. Drivers there have an accident rate 28.6% below the national average. Residents of Fort Collins can expect to get into an auto accident on average every 14 years. Other cities with safer drivers include Boise, Idaho, Lincoln, Nebraska, Chandler, Arizona, and Huntsville, Alabama. [Washington Post]

In a recent interview, Lenny Kravitz opened up about his substance abuse problems before his daughter helped him finally get sober. He also opened up about being extremely intoxicated during many of his very own recording sessions. "I had to surround myself with energy and chaos and excitement and conflict. For a bit I was high all the time, just medicating...” Kravitz told Men's Journal. “I suppose that was so I didn't have to feel certain things." No wonder all of his songs sound the same. Lenny eventually gave kudos to his daughter for practically saving his life. Kravitz stated: "It was the best thing that happened. I had to change my life.” [Men’s Journal]

Oscar De La Hoya Owns up to his Lingerie Pictures

After recently owning up to serious drug and alcohol problems, boxer Oscar De La Hoya has also come clean about some racy photos of him wearing high heels and women’s lingerie. "Let me to tell you, yes, yes, it was me [in those pictures]," Oscar recently told the show Aqui y Ahora. The photos from November 15, 2007 featuring Milana Dravnel were initially labeled as a hoax by De La Hoya, but he’s finally owned up to the weird pics. "I am tired now of lying, of lying to the public and of lying to myself." It’s also being reported that Oscar even handed over $20 million to Dravnel to keep a lid on the entire awkward situation. Either way, its nice to know Oscar is trying to get his life back together. [NY Post]
