Leah Remini has her best friend Jennifer Lopez's back.

On Thursday's episode of Watch What Happens Live, the 46-year-old actress was asked about Lopez's onstage kiss with ex-husband Marc Anthony at the Latin GRAMMYs, and whether she thought it was one of the reasons for Anthony's recent separation from wife Shannon De Lima.

"Absolutely not, that is not the reason," Remini insisted, adding that "Marc's separation had happened already clearly way before that."

"I thought it was an innocent kiss between two parents and two friends," she said of the smooch. "I love them on stage together and I love that they still perform."

Rapper 50 Cent was also on WWHL and called it a "dope moment" at the Latin GRAMMYs. "Dope moment, I agree," Remini responded.

The former King of Queens star also confirmed that Lopez is single after her split from Beau Casper Smart, which led to 50 Cent's name being thrown into the ring as a possible suitor. "That's not a bad idea," the 41-year-old rapper said in response to host Andy Cohen's suggestion. "Jennifer's a friend of mine."

While the moment at the awards show last month had some fans hoping for a rekindled romance between Lopez, 47, and Anthony, 48, a source also told ET that the exes "are not back together."

"That kiss onstage was totally innocent and egged on by the crowd," the source said, further confirming Remini's statements. "Nothing there, nothing."
