thanks for posting ginger! I just looked at the website, and their distances aren't standard -- they do an 18mile bike instead of 20km, and 4mile run instead of 5k. That explains a bit.

Whether or not she showed up for the the triathlon wouldn't impact the fundraising effort, once her entry fee was paid, because that's what the fundraising was from. If she had bailed on the last minute because of a foot injury she wouldn't have gotten her entry fee back anyway, so her attendance didn't have any impact on the amount raised, from what I've read. If she didn't want to do Heidi's show for whatever reason, she should have not agreed in the first place. Very unprofessional to flake.

Mykie I agree with you...someone else made a point about doing a tri for charity is way more important than project run way...yes raising money is important...but with work its about professionalism people. I hate when celebs get so big and believe in all their own hype and crap they forget where their bread is buttered and pull crap like this. Totally unprofessional and idiotic. DIVA!

A-HA! Vindication! This may or may not be true, but on another site, they are saying that the reason J-Lo pulled out of the show was because she was denied a role in a Weinstein film. Coincidentally, Weinstein produces Project Runway. In return, Heidi and Seal refused to go to Marc's birthday party. I TOLD you Heidi looked pi**ed when she gave the reason for Jennifer not attending. Like I said, that MAY not be true, but I do NOT buy that the only reason she dropped out was because of her foot. (Hello, the judges are SITTING during that show! How is that going to hurt her foot?)

California, thanks for that info! But I still think she's a stuck up snob. LMAO

This was evidently a tougher course, because the fastest time was 1:15:32. The team with the Olympic swimmer came in at 1:22:53.

Not to be elitist, but I'm shocked that Matthew McConaughey didn't do better than 1h43 for a sprint triathlon... for a man as athletic as he is, that's a reeeeeeeeally slow time. I did a sprint tri yesterday where the winner finished in 55 minutes, and the last finisher was still under two hours -- and it was an incredibly hard course. Not meaning to detract from the fact that they're still doing something that's pretty rare for celebrities, but it needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Especially with all the shirtless jogging/biking/in the ocean pictures we get of Matt.

She didn't give away that, she was commenting on how much the event raised. According to the event's press release,this year’s event raised over $718,000 for Childrens Hospital Los Angeles Pediatric Cancer Research. They get corporate sponsorship to fund the race expenses so the entry fees paid by participants goes to the charity. The press release also said David Duchovny was amongst the celebs, but I would think the media would be all over him, so it's possible he registered a long time ago and didn't show up, because of the recent rehab issues.

I am not a big J.Lo fan but kudos to her for doing this, I don't think I could ever compete in a triathlon. $127,000 does seem like a low amount of money for her to give away though. Mykie7, I know you later retracted your statement about J.Lo and Matt not being friends or coming into contact with each other during the race, but I always got the impression that they got along (despite their differences) and they did greet each other, according to People.com: "In the VIP area, Lopez met up with Matthew McConaughey, who also competed in the triathlon at Zuma Beach. The actor, who finished in 1 hour, 43 minutes and 48 seconds, greeted his former Wedding Planner costar with a big hug."

I'm just awestruck at the ability to finish the triathlon...My body would kill me after having had kids and putting it through that torture! Matthew.. of course!LOL Awesome guys.

But she probably spent more than $127,000 for her private jet back to NY that afternoon for her husband's birthday party, which she also probably spent more than $127,000 throwing.Any fundraising for the hospital is great, but it just seems weird having JLo raving about that amount when she spends more than that in a day.
