While Lopez admits that she's always been the one to fall in love
, the American Idol
judge says she now values her friendships with women
more than ever.
"I think I realized they were as important -- if not more important -- when I divorced Marc [Anthony]," the mother-of-two recalled. "I just realized that I had been through that a couple of times and there they still were. Like they say, men come and go, but my girlfriends are always there for me."
