Jennifer Lopez gets a restraining order against ex and his sex tapes

JloBefore we begin, we'd like to vent for just a moment.

Attention, famous people!! Can you please remember to keep your clothes on when a camera is present?? Please??

Thanks. We feel better now.

Jennifer Lopez has caught a break -- in the form of a temporary restraining order from an L.A. judge -- in her fight to keep her first husband from releasing sexy home videos, including some shot on their 1997 honeymoon. Lopez has filed a $10 million lawsuit against ex Ojani Noa.

Noa and his film partner were also told to advise third-party media outlets -- such as the National Enquirer, which reportedly has watched 11 hours of the footage -- about the restraining order.

The actress and singer successfully stopped her ex from publishing a tell-all book in 2007.

The waiter-slash-model who was married to the current Mrs. Marc Anthony for all of 11 months is not pleased.

Noa had hoped to make a "Borat"-style mocumentary titled "How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The J.Lo and Ojani Noa" story. It was to have begun shooting this February.

"I'm not making any money from these videos," he told the New York Daily News. "This is about having a closure. It's my story."

Hmm. In our experience, we've found that embarking on a new life story can provide more closure than clinging to tattered pieces of the past.

Arguments in the case are scheduled for Dec. 1.
