Ever since the end of Alex Rodriguez’s marriage in 2008, the slugger, through his accolades in the park, became a lady’s favorite. Analogous to that, pop sensation Jennifer Lopez fell for him, and the couple started dating in 2017. However, his relationship with JLo never stopped others from expressing their adoration toward the Yankees’ baseman. And that’s exactly what American businesswoman Barbara Corcoran did.

In an interview with the Entertainment Times from 2017, while standing alongside the MLB legend Alex Rodriguez, Barbara Corcoran attacked his beau Jennifer Lopez while subtly expressing her adoration towards the shortstop-turned-baseman. The interview took place behind the Shark Tank set, shortly before A-Rod’s appearance on the show.

On being asked about how Jennifer Lopez would fare on the show, Barbara playfully said, “I would hope that she would do terribly. He’d see the light, get rid of her, and marry me. That’s what I wish.”

After a humorous response, the host quickly turned to A-Rod and asked him his opinion on the same question. Without any hesitation, A-Rod disagreed with Barbara and stated that JLo would do pretty well on the show.

He said, “She would do awesome. She’s done so many wonderful things, but I think she has a great gut and instincts. She’s also a New Yorker like us, from the Bronx and I think she would do fantastic.”
