Looks like Jenny From the Block will be making a pit stop at MacLaren's Bar. CBS announced Wednesday that Jennifer Lopez will guest star in a March episode of How I Met Your Mother.

"We're looking forward to a week of revealing outfits and sexy dance moves the likes of which this show hasn't seen since Regis Philbin guest starred," series executive producer and co-creator Carter Bays says.

But don't expect Lopez to show up in another nude cat suit anytime soon. According to a press release, she will play Anita Appleby, an outspoken self-help guru who makes it her mission to break caddish Barney (played by Neil Patrick Harris) of his womanizing ways.

That sounds like corporate attire -- think power suits and shoulder pads instead of sequined robes and Louboutins.



Lopez, who is in talks to guest star on FOX's Glee, joins the roster of high-profile celebs to appear on HIMYM. Britney Spears and Rachel Bilson have also made cameos -- and Carrie Underwood just taped an episode last week. --Nicole Sia
