And they said these couples wouldn’t last.  Technically, one of these star-studded pairings (namely Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony) are rumored to be calling it quits on Valentine’s Day.  How romantic?  For at least a few more weeks, however, diva Jen and machismo Marc are still hitched and warrant inclusion in the Hot Mama Daily celebrity couple faceoff.

Here’s my take on the four hot couples: the aforementioned J.Lo and Marc; Beyonce and Jay-Z; Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon; and Rihanna and Chris Brown are all fabulously well-dressed-coifed-and-groomed, but based on Hollywood stats, I’m not sure their love will last.  But that’s just me being cynical. Or maybe I’ve just read too many tabloids.

That’s why it’s reader participation time (yay).  You tell me which of the four celebrity couples pictured is your favorite and why?

Jennifer looks stunning as usual and Marc looks handsome in designer shades and a dark suit.  Is this hot couple’s love on the rocks?

Jet-set lovebirds Beyonce and Jay-Z vacation is the most exotic places.  Here they are in St. Barts over the New Year’s holiday.  B and Jay seem genuinely happy together.  Are they the hottest couple?

Where do I begin?  I love Mariah.  I think she’s one of the most talented singers of our time.  But her decision to marry marginal “celebrity” Nick Cannon after dating him for only a few weeks is baffling. I sure hope Mimi has a pre-nup.

Rihanna and Chris Brown are young and sexy.  They both have incredible personal style and seem in sync. It’s hard to say if this is a case of puppy love, but I wish these young lovers well.
