Whether true or not, Jennifer Lopez has a rep for being a bit of a diva (heck, even we sometimes refer to her that way). But George Lopez? Apparently so, given how G.Lo found himself going head-to-head with J.Lo in the "Not a Diva Olympics" during the Lopez Tonight show on Thursday night. Standing alongside conveyor belts, each Lopez faced three ordinary, everyday tasks—grocery bagging, sandwich-making and diaper-changing—to determine, according to moderator John O'Hurley, "who is the friend of the common man and who is primped like a peacock." While we won't reveal who wins, this showdown should definitely put the diva rumors »
Among classic game shows, Family Feud is one of the most well-known and longest-running institutions.

The actress broke off her engagement to the seafood businessman in February and the couple then decided to part ways, according to RadarOnline.com.
They reconciled in November and now they're once again hoping to exchange vows - after Cappuccio proposed for the second time during an island vacation.
She says, "It's a new one (ring)! We just got engaged a few days ago. We got engaged in Bora Bora just last week. It was just awesome. He had a table set up by the water, so we had a private dinner on the beach, then we went swimming with the manta rays. It was awesome! I'm still bubbling."
And the adventurous star is hoping to tie the knot in a wild wedding in Thailand.
She adds, "We're actually thinking we're going to elope but with family and a couple of friends. We thinking about (getting married in) Thailand - because there's a tent camp there that's got elephants - they have an elephant safari. We were thinking we would get married on elephants! We just thought that would be so awesome because we love to travel, so we thought what's more exotic and awesome than getting married on elephants in Thailand?"
