Happy Hump Day! Dig into our chisme roundup below:
- J.Lo has a few works of encouragement for Demi Lovato, who recently inked a deal as one of the new celebrity judges on the talent competition, The X Factor. The American Idol judge expressed that the 19-year-old pop singer is “more than capable” to handle her new gig alongside pop sensation, Britney Spears. Reportedly Lovato signed the contract for a little over $1 million while Spears will be cashing in a cool $15 million.

- Close call! Actress Roselyn Sanchez lives only three blocks away from the bomb attack that occurred Tuesday night in Bogota, Colombia.

- Word is that Sofia Vergara’s son, Manolo Rodriguez, isn’t thrilled about his mother’s recent split from longtime boyfriend, Nick Loeb. According to the New York Daily News, he “looked at Nick like a father figure” and was super close with the businessman. That’s a tough one. Maybe that's Loeb's way in back to Vergara's heart?
