But Jennifer couldn't return without her beloved bestie and fellow prankster Angie "Pumps" Sullivan. "I said I won’t go forward without her," Jennifer said during a recent interview with AOL. "Pumps is the crowd favorite, and I always joke around and call her that, and she goes, 'F--k off!' But that’s just who she is. I wasn’t going to move forward without her."
Pumps isn't the only familiar face joining Jennifer on this new Sweet Home journey. Jennifer's ex-husband, Josh Welch, is also along for the ride again. Jennifer and Josh divorced 2013 after seven years of marriage, but they remain in a "happily unmarried" relationship while living together today.
Jennifer's attitude toward remarrying Josh remains unchanged. "The biggest question is always, 'Are you going to get remarried?' Younger people of course ask us that, but sometimes it's older people, too. It’s just like, 'No! We’ve already done that,'" Jennifer told AOL. "I see the tradition aspect of it, but I bought into the whole fairytale and it didn’t come out the way I wanted. I’m really happy now, though. I like this now. I don’t feel at 44 years old — and Josh is going to be 50 — that we have to get married. I’m not a religious person, so I don’t feel any kind of burden."
