The View’s Ana Navarro has admitted that her husband Al Cárdenas is ‘crazy jealous’ of her friendship with Puerto Rican singer Marc Anthony.
Ana, 51, branded Al, 75, ‘territorial’ and ‘old school’ as she revealed his hang up with Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband.
Speaking on The View: Behind the Table podcast, the brunette told executive producer Brian Teta: ‘My husband is crazy jealous for some crazy reason – and I laugh about it all the time – of Marc Anthony.
‘I’m like, “Al, you realize he’s been married to JLo and two Miss Universes! Believe you me, I am not his type! Not to mention I’m like his age, that doesn’t work!”‘

Brian suggested she should find it ‘flattering’ that her husband thinks Marc might ‘steal [her] away,’ to which she joked: ‘You realize I could probably kill him with my thighs!’
‘I adore him. I adore him, adore him, adore him! And I adore his new wife,’ she added in reference to Paraguayan fashion model Nadia Ferreira, who married Marc in January.
The political strategist and commentator married the Cuban-born lawyer in March 2019 at a beachfront ceremony in Florida which was attended by stars including Eva Longoria, Gloria Estefan and Mitt Romney.
Ana opened up about her husband’s apparent jealousy as she discussed Taylor Lautner’s friendship with his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
‘I was fascinated by the idea that his ex, Taylor Swift, would call him now that he’s married to this other Taylor and ask him to be part of her new video,’ Ana said, referring to the video for the hitmaker’s song I Can See You.
‘Okay, so I don’t know about you but if my ex called my house asking me to do something for him, my husband.. but of course my husband is Cuban and territorial and jealous and old school… my husband would have a fit!’
Her comments come less than three weeks after she gushed about Marc on Instagram after spending time with him at the Night of the Stars annual gala in New York City.
Posting a photo of her with her co-host Whoopi Goldberg, as well as a selfie with Marc and New York City Police Commissioner Edward Caban, she wrote: ‘It was special to celebrate two people I [heart emoji] and admire. @whoopigoldberg & @marcanthony were both honored last night.
‘I also got to meet @nypdpc Edward Caban. He is the first Latino Police Commissioner of NYC. He began his career with the New York City Police Department as a Police Officer in 1991, patrolling the streets of the South Bronx and today, he is the top cop. Proud of him, and rooting for his success.’

Ana also spent time with Marc at the annual Maestro Cares Foundation Gala in December 2022, and looked delighted to be in his company as they put their arms around one another and posed for photos with dog trainer Cesar Millan.
However, Ana isn’t the only host on The View with a jealous partner as just last week Sunny Hostin admitted that her spouse Emmanuel isn’t best pleased when men offer to buy her drinks in bars.
In a recent episode of The View podcast, the panel were answering questions from members of the live studio audience and were talking about dating when Joy Behar joked: ‘I am Sunny’s wing woman, okay. We’re sitting at the bar, she’s sitting there, and suddenly a guy comes over to her and starts chatting her up and she’s like “hahahahahahaha”.’
Not exactly denying Joy’s flirtatious claims, Sunny replied: ‘I’m a bar fly so I tend to get a lot of drink offers. It’s just really weird, my husband does not like it and he says it’s because I have big teeth and I smile too much!’
Alyssa Farah Griffin then piped up and said: ‘No, you have an energy because I notice it with male guests that come on too…’
Ana then interjected and claimed: ‘Honey, if somebody brought Manny a drink you would be homicidal!’
Sunny responded: ‘I would be crazy!’
