Ben Affleck had sex with the nanny in the Bahamas during his breakup vacation

Christine Ouzounian Heads To A Hotel Amid Rumors Of Her Dating Ben Affleck
As we saw earlier this week, the 28 year-old former nanny to the Garner-Affleck children, a woman named Christine Ouzounian, is extremely thirsty. She’s been doing pap walks and talking to the press, revealing details about her alleged relationship with Affleck and about herself. The Daily Mail has a video of her talking to the paparazzi and she seems super happy to say “I have no comment, sorry.” (They also claim she’s with an assistant or stylist, but it’s just as likely to be a friend or family member helping carry her stuff. Look at how she’s dressed, that’s not a stylist.)

While Affleck has officially denied a relationship with Ouzounian and is threatening to sue, legitimate celebrity news outlets, like US Magazine and People, are standing by their reporting and even claiming that sources close to Jennifer Garner can confirm that Affleck hooked up with the nanny. What’s more is that Ouzounian went to the Bahamas at the end of June with Garner and Affleck, in the role of their children’s nanny, and slept with Affleck there. People reported that Garner found out after Affleck and the nanny had already left and that she was “livid” and promptly fired Ouzounian.

E! Online is giving more background on this relationship, and they claim that Ouzounian arranged to have the paparazzi photograph her with Affleck when the children weren’t around and after she was fired by Garner. Once Affleck found out he was pissed, and you can read between the lines that this was why he dumped her. Affleck and the nanny used to hook up at the Hotel Bel Air, where Ben stayed during his separation. So, just as this story broke, Ouzounian went back to the Hotel Bel Air and stayed there by herself while Affleck is in Atlanta. She is truly shameless! Here’s more, from E!

Now a friend close to Ouzounian, as well as other sources, tell E! News more details about the caretaker’s relationship with both Affleck and Garner.

“She was not doing her job of being a nanny,” one source close to the couple explains.

The insider further insists that Ouzounian had nothing to do with the couple’s divorce, adding, “This was not the reason they announced the separation. It was one of many things.”

“Ben is absolutely not dating anyone. There is nothing physical of romantic between Ben and Christine,” the source adds. “Dating is not his focus and it hasn’t been his focus throughout the separation period. He was tired of Jen’s negative energy and constant berating—but that does not mean he cheated…

The couple, who met on the set of Daredevil, let Ouzounian go on July 1, one day after they announced their divorce. But photographs of Ouzounian and Affleck, taken July 17, seemed to show them hanging out together even though she was no longer working for them.

But another source tells E! News that Ouzounian actually tipped off the paparazzi to have them take photographs of her with her former employer. Affleck supposedly became “very upset” upon discovering the photographers…

“What started out as a flirtation quickly turned into more,” the pal says.

But Garner didn’t let her go for a while because she was a “sweet girl” and her children “adored” her.

When Affleck and Ouzounian began to hang out more, she told her friend that he would set “covert meet-ups” and their
professional relationship turned romantic.

“…Eventually she couldn’t contain her excitement and spilled the beans that she was dating Ben Affleck…she told her friends she was completely in love with him,” Ouzounian’s friend explains. “Ben told Christine things that led her to believe they were going to be fully together. Over the course of the last few months, their relationship became very real and serious to Christine.”

Although Garner was “very, very suspicious” of her nanny, the friend adds that Ouzounian told her she wasn’t fired until Garner “found out that Ben and Christine had been intimate” while in the Bahamas. According to Ouzounian’s friend, that was Garner’s breaking point.

[From E! Online]

Meanwhile, do you know what Jennifer Garner did as the nanny sold her story and strutted her stuff? She visited pediatric cancer patients. This isn’t the first time she’s visited a children’s hospital. Just a few days before the news of her divorce broke, Garner visited Boston Children’s Hospital to do research for her role in Miracles From Heaven, filming now. I remember because the news came out late on a Friday, just when I expected to hear of their divorce, but the divorce announcement was delayed until after they’d reached the ten year anniversary mark.

Garner is SUPER controlling of her image. It took me a while to believe that about her because I’m one of those women who doesn’t leave the house without doing my hair and makeup. The fact that she dresses down and doesn’t wear makeup is a strategic move. See how happy she is here, reminding us that she cares about little kids and is a great mom? She’s going to come out of this looking like the sweet wronged party while Affleck is going to look like the dog he is. And the nanny? She’s playing a stupid media game that’s going to backfire. She’s going to have to find another career because she’s not going to parlay this into a reality show and no one will want to hire her after this.

    What next? An exclusive from the woman Affleck was cheating on the nanny with, is my guess…

    • Alice says:

      A sex tape, maybe?

    • Abbott says:

      Whatever it is, Wonder Woman is breathing a sigh of relief…

      • bella says:

        your post intrigues me…
        from all the hints, pieces, blinds, i’ve come to believe gal gadot (wonder woman) was with affleck in nova scotia and plays a huge role in this long overdue breakup.


      • amccar says:

        @ bella
        I totally agree…I also think that the woman in Nova Scotia plays a big part in this whole story.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I feel bad for Gal, I think she isn’t involved in this. Blinds used the word “wonder”, not for “Wonder Woman”, but for “To the Wonder”, the name of his movie with Olga kurylenko (the real answer to the blind).

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      I swear he knocked someone up. Found out for sure it was his after the baby was born. Hence the back dating the separation by 10 months…..

    • Rice says:

      Honestly, I feel like this is “Gone Girl” come to life, except Jen isn’t a homocidal psychopath but just a very cool, calculating woman. Is it bad that I admire her game?

      • LB says:

        I admire it as well. She was a big reason why Ben’s career had such a resurgence. She made him look like a clean family man. Yes there were rumors all along but unless you’re into reading about celebrity gossip blogs, you wouldn’t really know about Blake, Olga, Gal, the numerous others. The nanny though? That’s a front page story. That’s a slight hit on the family man’s reputation (not enough to get blackballed in Hollywood but enough to lose some of his audience).

        She’s going to come out of this looking like a gem and I’ll be cackling about it.

      • Cindy says:

        I agree. Garner is kind of a genius. The timing of the pediatric ward……wow.

      • Anne tommy says:

        There seems to be a very cynical view of Jen’s hospital visit. I’m not sure it’s justified. And going out dressed in a normal rather than a starry way is also a deliberate manipulative ploy of some sort? How do we know that? I don’t think Jen needs much PR to make Ben look bad – he’s pretty much done that on his own.

    • pikny says:

      beginning to think jemmifer garner special needs..kick that dik to the curb,,get counselling for the kids ,fuk that is o.k to be alone…

    • pikny says:

      douchey jennifer will take him back…must be golden dik

    • jenniferjustice says:

      Obviously he’s going to claim he has a sex addiction…

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Wow, this nanny never wanted Ben. She wanted exposure, and she used him like soap. I feel for Jen, but no sympathy for Ben at all. I’m sure he was just using her, too, but didn’t expect her to be such a slime. Maybe she’s actually a good actor.

    • Little Darling says:

      If she used him like soap why do I feel soooooo dirty reading about her?

    • Merritt says:

      If that was her endgame, then she is dumber than I thought. This attention will turn against her soon and if she doesn’t know that she is a fool. Many before her have tried this road to fame, it usually backfires.

      • kibbles says:

        If she had been smart about this she would have been very discreet about this affair. She shouldn’t have ever called the paps to take photographs. She shouldn’t have even allowed Garner to find out until at least the divorce papers were finalized. Garner is not the saint she portrays herself to be, but in this situation she is the wronged party. The nanny (I’m not even going to try to remember her name) should have milked her relationship with Affleck into luxury gifts, cash, and used hm for his connections to get a job in the movie industry. Now that she’s exposed him, he will never help her or go near her again. She may think she’s won the war, but both Garner and Affleck will remain powerful forces in Hollywood. They will make sure she never works in that town again. She will be lucky if she even gets an offer to be on a trashy reality show.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I wasn’t praising her and I don’t think this will get her anywhere – but I do think that was her motive.

      • Gigi says:

        @Kibbles. Its really naive to think that Ben would have kept her long enough for her to get gifts from him. He is a gambler, his thrills arent from the sex, they are from the taboo nature of the connection and you can only live out the thrill a short while before it gets boring. And when Ben gets bored with a wife, he treats her like sh*t but still comes home but with a Random, he wont even say bye. The babysitters goose was cooked sooner or later. Besides, the girl wants attention but is geriatric in Hollywood terms. Not even Ben can cast a complete unknown of 28 in a meaningful role and get away with it. And he wouldnt be stupid enough to extend the connection in a way that would give a Random ammunition to accuse him of Casting Couch politics.

      • Alex says:

        its already against her. Garner is slowly putting out her small tidbits of how awful she is and the momentum is going to build. Once we get over the story on Ben’s side (and how awful he is) the media will stop coming to the nanny for an exclusive and rip her apart.
        Game. Set. Match to Garner (a game she didn’t want to win but you know)

      • Dee says:

        Yep. Remember that girl that Ashton Kutcher cheated with? She set the bar for shamelessness. I saw on a site not long after the story broke, a photo of her nude, on her back, in a crude position so there were no secrets, pretending to be asleep with the accompanying supplied caption: “So and So (can’t remember her name thank god) after sex” or something like that. I can’t believe it was even published. She went nowhere, of course, and now she has that shame to live with. I hope she feels it.

      • Liberty says:

        Okay, who is she? Per HELLO: “….nanny grew up in Santa Monica, not far from Tinsel Town, and is the typical California girl. “She’s very well put-together and fun,” Christine’s friend told People. Prior to her job as a nanny, Christine also worked as a teacher for Head Start Academy, a concierge at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and a sales intern at Prudential California Real Estate, according to her now defunct LinkedIn profile.” She is also described as a former nanny to Neil Patrick Harris’s kids.

      • jenniferjustice says:

        She could have taken tips from Arnold’s cleaning lady. That woman had his child and he looked just like him. Well into his teens with he and his mother being taken care of, keeping her job, being part of the fold and special treatment for all those years….lacking morals but definitely knew how to keep a secret.

    • Liv says:

      I think Jennifer is much more calculating than people think. I just feel sorry for their kids, just imagine you grow up and read all the storys about your parents divorce. Horrible.

      • laura in LA says:

        Yep, I agree. Sad.

      • MyCatLoves TV says:

        I can’t remember. Did she leave Scott Foley for Ben? Foley only has been on my radar since “Scandal” so I was thinking maybe he wasn’t famous enough for Jennifer to stay married to back in 2003. (Oh baby….look at him now! Woof!)

      • Liv says:

        I think it depends on what you think of her. Rumour is that she was very ambitious and aimed for a bigger star than Foley was…

      • MyCatLoves TV says:

        I think it is unfortunate when anybody (man or woman) is so calculating or ambitious that they break someone’s heart as they step over them to the next stepping stone. At the end of the day, ambition makes for a cold bed. I just hope that commenters here that say Jennifer is a good mother are right. Those kids are so precious and they didn’t ask for any of this.

      • Lena says:

        She left Foley for Michael Vartan. Then was seeing Ben and dumped Vartan.

    • Alice says:

      What I don”t understand is how do you face friends and family after being such a twat? My shame threshhold is just too low.

      • Elisa the I. says:

        I assume you mean Affleck? 😛

      • Sea Dragon says:

        Alice – this times infinity! I’d live the rest of my days sheepishly avoiding eye contact with anyone I know. Oh, the tangled webs some people weave!

      • MyCatLoves TV says:

        She looks so smug in her pap walks that it is beyond obnoxious. Her mama & daddy must be SO proud. (My parents would have torn me a new one if I did what this trick did….feed off a dying marriage while pretending to be a loving nanny. Ugh.)

      • carol says:

        What I don’t understand is why affleck has a pot belly. Isn’t he filming Batman?

    • clickjen says:

      This comment is in the wrong spot. I was trying to reply to the person who said the nanny didn’t want Ben, she only wanted exposure. Well, my guess is that she did want Ben… in the worst way, and when he dumped her she was hurt and sought revenge to make his life difficult. Happens all the time. Celebrity or no celebrity.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Oh that was me. Your theory is my alternate theory and could definitely be true. She might be seeking revenge for him dumping her. But the timing would suggest that he dumped her because she went to the apps, not that he dumped her and then she went to the apps. IF, and that’s a big if, this story is accurate.

      • Sabrine says:

        The nanny wanted Ben with the condom off. Some succeed at that. Some don’t. I have a feeling he didn’t get caught in that regard much to the disappointment of the nanny. There goes 20 years of lucrative child support payments where she could have been on Easy Street. If she had hung on to him longer, she might have had a better chance at being impregnated.

    • bluhare says:

      I tend to agree and I think there is a lot with them that has never gone public.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I actually feel really bad for Jennifer…I know lots of people think she is controlling and super concerned about her image, etc. But, I think she truly loved and adored Ben, and when you come right down to it, she is a wife and mom, whose husband cheated on her. And to make it worse, all the sordid details (if this nanny’s story is true) are being broadcast all over the media. My ex-husband cheated on me, and I can tell you, it was truly the most hurtful time in my life…

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Me, too to all of your comments, MrsBPitt. It is humiliating and so painful when someone you love does that to you. It makes everything tainted – even the good memories. I feel for her, too. And I’m so sorry that happened to you.

      • Liv says:

        He did that for years. Not to speak of his addiction problem which she definitely was aware of. I think that they were both in love with each other, but I don’t have much sympathy for her. She milked her family and her kids and orchestrated pap walks, yet was the first to fight for the #nokidspolicy. His affair goes public and she shows up at the hospital visiting cancer patients. Definitely no coinicidence. She plays hard. I ffel sorry for her that her marriage fell apart, but she knew long time ago that he was cheating.

      • Boo says:

        I don’t feel sorry for her. Jennifer Garner cheated on her husband Scott Foley. He was devastated and blind sided. He shaved his head. I remember him doing a very short interview about a year afterwards and he seemed to be just coming out of shock or something, tentative, sad.

        Jen is getting what she deserves. Her manipulative press stuff is just that – manipulative.

        Jen Garner is with Ben Affleck because they are the same kind of person. The kids are the only innocents here.

      • phlyfiremama says:

        By jove, Boo, I think you nailed it!!!

    • Sherry says:

      I don’t think she was using him, I think she deluded herself into thinking she was so irresistible he couldn’t help but fall in love with her. More than likely, she had fantasies of him leaving Jennifer, them moving in together, eventually marrying and having kids together and she would be the new Mrs. Ben Affleck, with all of the money and “prestige” that title would give her.

      I’m not even convinced she understands that it’s over between them now that their relationship has been outed.

      I would say poor, naive girl, but I cannot find any sympathy for her. I’m “team Jennifer” and she is making masterful moves in this public divorce.

      • Starrywonder says:

        I agree. Sounds like she got dumped and Ben Affleck got used to being able to have Jen Garner putting up with his crap he assumed she would too. He’s a pig.

    • bcgirl says:

      you’re giving belt girl way too much credit.

    • littlestar says:

      I don’t know why her or anyone would want exposure of this kind.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        That’s because you are a smart, decent person, littlestar – not everyone is like that.

    • ruth says:

      this “nanny” looks really happy.

      • Hannah says:

        What a snooze this nanny story is- I’m waiting for JLo or Blake Lively to emerge!

    • megsie says:

      The nanny is being manipulated. Look at that smile! Stupid girl doesn’t even realize.

      • jenniferjustice says:

        She’s is the manipulator. Its just hard for normal nice people to comprehend that kind of selfish mentality. I’ve told this story here before but it never stops being useful…I had a friend who was sleeping with one our friend’s husband. I asked her how she could do that to her and her answer was a nasty “why should she have everything?” That honest response left an indelible impression on me. It gives insight into how a sociopath thinks. Not “I want that too” but “I’m going to take what you have.” I Also read a piece written by a profiler who said sociopaths believe anything we have that they want is theirs – they just haven’t acquired it from us yet. So No sympathy for smily girl. She’s not naiave. She truly enjoys the attention.

  3. Luca76 says:

    Jen is really, really calculating and image conscious, and contrived as heck but she doesn’t have to do much to look like a saint right? Ben is making it really easy to hate him.

    • Gigi says:

      They are BOTH image conscious. Around the announcement Jen visited sick kids and Ben was snapped leaving a Human Rights Centre. I have made my peace with this, all celebrities watch their image. Especially the ones who dont look like they do, it takes hard work to come off like you just dgaf but still be likeable (Rihanna anybody?). I’m realistic about these things, I can only ask that my celebrities dont throw their weight around trying to control whether a public access station airs the fact that their ancestor was a slave owner, that kind of thing pisses me off.

      • Luca76 says:

        Yeah it’s just some of Jen’s moves have been so hypocritical. Biggest one testifying against paparazzi whilst regularly setting up photo op with the kids.

      • bluhare says:

        Don’t think Rihanna is a great example of dgaf but likeable! 🙂

    • kibbles says:

      I agree with Celebitchy that Garner’s dressing down and not wearing makeup has been a part of a very smart strategy to win over the minivan majority. Whenever I saw people commenting here about how ugly Garner’s shoes are and that she needs a new stylist, I always thought to myself that she clearly chooses to look like that on purpose. This is how many normal women who care more about comfort than fashion dress like on a grocery run or to pick up the kids. The average stay at home mom will not identify with a hot celebrity who has a stylist dress her in designer clothes and shoes to pick up the kids from school. Garner went from being a B-list celebrity who should have been long forgotten by now to half of a very powerful A-list Hollywood couple. She molded Affleck’s image and for ten years successfully helped him hide his indiscretions as best as possible. Despite a mediocre movie career, she has managed to become a household name and is regularly featured on the cover of women’s magazines. She has used the paparazzi to sell her image as a sweet and down to earth mom while pretending that the paparazzi were a danger to her children. She is well liked by the public, and if it wasn’t for the foolishness of this nanny, she and Affleck would have been able to get through this divorce with the media playing into their hands. Affleck is a fool and it is obvious that his image will go down the tubes once again without Garner by his side to protect him. She is very media savvy. Affleck should have been in better control of his dong and chosen side pieces were were more mature, intelligent, and discreet. If he had done so rather than publicly embarrassing his wife, Garner might still be with him. He needs her more than she needs him.

      • Gru says:

        I’ve always thought Jen was just initially being herself. Even in her Alias days she wasnt being snapped looking like glammed up during her off time. And when she got with Ben the media really picked up on it and people liked it that about her, partly because she was the exact opposite of Jlo who had all kinds of diva rumors swirling around her at the time and partly because it made her both different and relatable. The positive reinforcement meant that she never faced pressure to change and not only that, it became a part of her brand. So in the same way that Jlo cant go to the shops without a little bronzer, Garner cant go to the shops with bronzer. The brand takes over. Although in both cases, I really think that their respective brands have captured who they are quite accurately.

      • missy says:

        I agree with most of what you said. I know Alias was forever ago but TV fans don’t forget their favs… (sarah Michelle Gellar, soap opera audiences and so on). I am more of a tv person so for awhile I knew of Garner more than Affleck, so I don’t buy the she sux and was nothing before him. Nope. If anything she was on her way up and starting her family and choosing to stay more at home hurt her.

      • Wren says:

        Gru, I agree. She’s taken what was initially her own style and turned it into a brand. Now she can’t not appear a certain way because she’s built her whole media persona around it and it’s taken over.

        The thing is, I think the marriage had to end no matter what. There’s only so long you can play the long suffering wife card before it becomes old and instead of sympathy you get “why don’t you just leave?” Or “you need to set a better example for your children!” This bit with the nanny was just the catalyst. The way for Jen to exit gracefully with her dignity intact.

        And I only have a problem with her ugly shoes when they are very obviously NOT comfy. Ugly and uncomfortable? No passes from me.

      • Luca76 says:

        I’ve said this before but I was a huge Alias fan and I used to really like Jen G at the time. She definitely changed her image when she got with Affleck and I do think it was because it was known she’d been chasing after Affleck for years. It’s one of those pieces of gossip that no one remembers. She started dressing down and making pains to be the anti-J-Lo.

      • Tate says:

        @missy I agree. I have no clue what she is like as a person but the idea that she did not have a career before this marriage is just not accurate. I was well aware of her before she ever got with Ben.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree, Gru. I remember reading about how she’d get farmers market tomatoes and make tomato basil soup to freeze and use for lunch on set of Alias. Her dog was named Martha Stewart, etc.This was all before she was married.

        She’s also been involved in children’s charities for a while, not just since the divorce was announced.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Gah! Because the minivan majority is so easily manipulated! Ugly shoes, she’s just like us!

      • Dee says:

        I agree. And I’ll bet Ben greatly resented her obvious strategy and also the fact that she looked like tired crap when they were photographed together. I’ll bet that was part of the reason for his sour and distanced attitude.

      • Jensbend says:

        It seems to me Garner is just trying to give her kids a childhood something like her own. Not one dictated by Hollywood.

    • lila fowler says:

      Yeah. I mean, do kids even know or care who she is? Odd.

  4. blue marie says:

    All I can do is shake my head, Ben is an idiot..

    The only make up I wear is mascara and lip gloss, it may be lazy but I want those extra 20 minutes of sleep. Plus, I have folks comment on how healthy my skin/complexion looks.. But I fully believe Garner knows what she’s doing with the press

    • Greata says:

      @blue marie …Ben Affleck is not only messy, he is selfish and reckless. A dangerous combination.

  5. jinni says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with Garner doing what she needs to do in order to protect her image. It’s not her fault Ben doesn’t seem to care enough about his own that he gets into situations that has destroyed all of the hard work she did to make him look good in the public throughout their marriage. Why should she let her image go to hell in a handbasket just because her loser ex can’t keep all the messiness he did while they were together a secret anymore?

    • tracking says:

      This. Plus I believe she does, in fact, care about children.

    • Kitten says:

      Agreed, Jinni. Not gonna hate on her for being smart about her career.

    • CK says:

      Right and props to Jen for not going scorched earth. I don’t know how civil I’d be if my husband screwed around with the Nanny before the ink was dry on the divorce papers.

      • Merritt says:

        Jen doesn’t need to go scorched earth now, the press and public will do a lot of it for her.

      • Luca76 says:

        Yeah there is no need for her her to do or say a thing. She’s officially won. I do think it’s going to get uglier because now that Ben’s been caught with his pants down he’s going to want to take Jen down a notch but whatever he does or says will only make him look worse.

    • lolo says:

      Agreed , no need to go down with Ben’s sinking ship martyr style.

    • Alice says:

      I loved her in Alias, like her movies, never gave a damn about Affleck, even in his younger days. I always thought she could do better than him. I hate the nastiness for the kids” sake, but it”s majorly on him.

    • Alex says:

      THIS. and she loves being a mom…something I have zero issues with

      • anon33 says:

        ^^^This comment proves exactly how well her carefully crafted image works for her. Right here.

      • Sullivan says:

        So, you think the good mom stuff is an act and she’s actually Mommy Dearest behind closed doors?

  6. Maya says:

    Poor children – even though Jennifer seems to be good mother she is doing damage by exposing Ben’s affairs.

    Ben is and will always be a douche so nothing surprises me anymore.

    The nanny – how low can you go? What if one of the children found them while having sex???

    • Samtha says:

      I don’t think Jennifer is the one who exposed the affair; it was the nanny who started running her mouth (apparently when Ben dumped her).

    • jinni says:

      Garner is not the one leaking this story, it’s the nanny herself letting this all out. Garner spent 10 years making this man look good. Always making sure to clean up his public guffaws. Now they aren’t together, even though he is the father of her children, she isn’t obligated to clean up his messes anymore. It’s time Ben cleaned up Ben’s own mess. It’s not her fault he’s not doing a good job of it. He had 10 years to learn from the best on how to keep a public friendly image, if he didn’t pick up a few tricks in that time, well that’s on him.

      • Alice says:

        ^^^ yes

        Very true. This is Affleck’s mess and it is his and his PR team’s job to clean it up. Garner did her best for ten years to protect her husband; goodness knows how many millions he’s blown at poker and how many women he’s slept with. If he had been with a woman less intellect or media saavy, all of this would have been reported in the press years ago. However one feels about Garner, you have to give her credit for being very smart and in control of her image as well as her husband’s for an entire decade. We all know how hard that must have been with Affleck constantly messing up.

      • smcollins says:

        Well put, Jinni! I couldn’t agree with you more.

      • Cindy says:

        So very true. Garner can safely wash her hands of him now. He wanted out, now he’s out. (There is a small part of me that wonders, however, if she purposely hired an attractive nanny with no ethics and a big mouth, so Ben would hang himself once and for all. I would not blame her for it.)

      • bettyrose says:

        Cindy, I like how your mind works and I think you may be right. Nothing but respect for Jen’s game, honestly, but I still shake my head sadly that a young woman in this day and age could be dumb enough to think she could lock down a philandering a-lister so easily. (And 28 isn’t all that young.)

      • Moi says:

        @Cindy, that’s brilliant if true.

  7. Elyse says:

    I just don’t understand what this woman is thinking. Does she honestly think she is going to get some sort of Hollywood career from this publicity? Everyone is thinking horrible things about you right now. You’ll never even be a nanny again. Girl, please.

    • frivolity says:

      She’ll make more money from silly trivial Hollywood appearances than most of us will ever see in a lifetime. Sad but true.

      • Alex says:

        they won’t pay her that much esp if she has nothing super gossipy like texts and such. She will get maybe 5 figures if they were feeling generous which where she lives will be gone quick

      • Lauren II says:

        The nanny does not look much taller than Violet. She isn’t exactly model slim either. Straw highlighted hair. Creepy toothy grin.

        Does Ben have a type? Or does he bang anyone that is readily available? Ben did this to make Jen give up. She was hanging on for years hoping Ben would change.

        Ben wants OUT of this marriage. Fluffy Puppy has been replaced by Creepy Cling – on Nanny.

    • Merritt says:

      She will make a little money in the short term. But she will probably spend it all on clothes and other stuff. But none of it will last.

    • Gigi says:

      Well, this actually gets her out of the nanny business, which lets face it, wasnt her lifes dream in the first place. At 28, she is too old for an actress, modelling career anyway, so why not go scorched earth, make some money and use it to set up a nice little clothes boutique in LA somewhere?
      Disclaimer: I dont necessarily approve, I’m just stating what really is fairly smaht logic if you can live with yourself afterwards.

    • missy says:

      It’s like Ummmm Helllo? Where is Jude Laws nanny? Right. And if this mediocre looking girl thought she would be apart of a power couple? Angelina Jolie you are not honey. BUt I would compare Garner to Aniston.. Watch out girl the minivans are coming for you! lol

    • belle de jour says:

      “Ben told Christine things that led her to believe they were going to be fully together. ”

      Uh huh. Because nothing says, “You are my one true love. As soon as I divorce my wife very publicly, you and I will be different, my heart. We will be together always, and it will be beautiful” like “Bel Air. 10. Same room. Park in the back, don’t use the main lobby again, and if you stand there and pound on the door like last time, I swear to….”

      • Starrywonder says:


      • taxi says:

        @ Belle – you got it.
        Who’s paying her BelAir Hotel bill? The article says she checked in there. Maybe the tabs? Doubt it’s Ben. A top-notch nanny makes very good money, but not that good. This woman isn’t top-notch & she’ll never get another nanny job where there’s a wife on the premises. (I’d hire a Nanny McPhee look-alike or the Sra. who works for Will & Kate.)

      • Liberty says:

        @Belle, ha, totally.

        @taxi — I read that the nanny has hired a “crisis PR consultant” — possibly the woman she’s shown with? Link here:

        Maybe her new “team” is hoping to make a few reality bucks off this girl, and so are paying for the hotel to keep in front of Hollywood’s eye versus in a Marriott somewhere, LOL, and hoping to negotiate something like Big Brother UK that will end up paying her bills. Or, she has parents helping her out. My guess is she will end up being part of the Yacht Girls that go to Italy/South of France every summer for the, uh, work.

  8. SleepyJane says:

    I wonder if Jennifer hired her knowing that Ben is such an idiot, that this is exactly how it would all play out: Jen wins, Ben is the dirty dawg we all suspected he is. Mission accomplished.

    • Mean Hannah says:

      This is my theory. Jen has had enough, 10 year mark was coming, so she deliberately hired a new nanny who is young and attractive. She could never divorce him first and he didn’t want to leave a good thing. All she had to do was sit back and let Ben be Ben.

      • WindowChair5 says:

        That is a really interesting theory about hiring the nanny and letting Ben be Ben. Reading up on these 2 the last couple of days, I kinda think that’s a brilliant move. And now I kinda think that’s what happened. Jen seems to be pretty smart that way.

      • Cindy says:

        Yes yes yes and yes. Maybe garner is just so done with cleaning up messes for Ben, she wanted out. And beat him at his own game to do it.

  9. Jayna says:

    Jennifer goes to visit sick children all the time. The family I think are the ones who posted those photos to their social media first and it came out days later that she had visited there. Jen’s eyes look puffy, like she’s been crying. Of course, I don’t blame her.

    I don’t think Ben had arranged for them to meet on July 17th, when she says she has photographic evidence they met up at his rental. I think he had ended it because of all the fallout from Jen and probably told her he was going to focus on his kids, and she talked him into meeting up because she was upset or however she did it and he agreed, and it was really because she had a photographer alerted to catch it. Now she had more proof. Because what she was doing was setting up her photographic evidence when she sold her story.

  10. bellenola says:

    The ‘nanny’ just looks so thrilled to be pap’d! What a sh!tshow!

    • frivolity says:

      Yup. And it’s only just begun. Funny, she has such a punchable face – just like Ben.

      • Ms. Turtle says:

        Frivolity, this made me laugh. “Punchable face” is so perfect a description of Ben. When I read Gone Girl, the movie was being cast and when I heard they’d picked Affleck all I could think was YES! He was born to play Nick Dunne. Of course I never guessed just how much like him he is.

      • missy says:

        He always looks so miserable. Its ridiculous, Im rich and famous and can do what I want, but i am sooooooooooo miserable. waaaaahhhhh. ugh bitch please.,

  11. Little Darling says:

    Their marriage was over for awhile, so technically it’s not an “affair” but this is the grossest feeling gossip that I’ve read in such a long time. I’m disgusted by this woman, even more disgusted with Ben than I ever thought I could be. This is a woman who held their kids in her arms, who was employed by the family and held a special place of trust. That is the true low blow here, one day Violet will learn that the playmate/caretaker she had banged daddy and it’s going to suck so bad. Well, actually, those kids are going to learn a lot more about their Dad so I guess it’s par for course.

    Ben is nasty. And dumb. I mean, if it wasn’t love he definitely could have found it elsewhere. But, he always appeared to be a man of convenience to me, and why not munch the muff that’s close to home? Effortless rocks off.

    I’m already tired of seeing her eager face. Girl is so thirsty it seems that she’s forgotten that LA is in a drought!

  12. KH says:

    Can anyone clarify this – tabloids are saying Jennifer found out about the affair while still in the Bahamas and then fired the nanny but the nanny has been in photos down in Georgia at the kids fair and going to the mall with Ben and the kids right? So seems unlikely that Jen has discovered an affair if the nanny was just with them all last week? I’m confused!

  13. Becks says:

    Christine also worked as a nanny for Neil Patrick Harris and his partner. She has a twin sister, Caty, who is some sort of PA for NPH. You can extrapolate that Christine got her postion through her sister’s connections.

    Ironically, Caty’s work profile reads, in part,
    “I’m socially appropriate and understand the fine lines involved when working in someone’s home”.

    • boredblond says:

      I guess she realized there was no way to sleep her way to fame with nph 😎 I think she and the tabs/paps will be very happy together.

    • Ronda says:

      dont we all lie a bit in our CVs? lol

    • Jayna says:

      If that’s her profession, I would think what her sister is doing would be so distasteful to her. But the nanny, through her sources of course, has said she and her sister live in her parents’ home. Does the twin who works for NPH and David approve of her sister setting up and selling out an employer and banging the employer?

      With her sister’s connections, she could have moved up to be some famous celeb’s personal assistant and traveled the world with them or stayed a nanny. She had no real career all these years, just bouncing around in different low-level jobs, attended college, never finished, engaged to a fisherman in the Bahamas that ended.

      So she is cashing in on selling all these stories. She will have some money. But what does she think, that she’s going to get some gig from all of this on TV or something? She’s a fool. She seems so proud of this, that she banged her boss, Jennifer Garner, a sweet woman’s husband, her other boss, and is selling the story thereby hurting the wife and children, that she was a part of their life for a few months and she’s all proud of the attention, no shame at all. She’s a bottom-feeder.

      • Kitten says:

        Yup. I hope she enjoys her 5 minutes.

      • Merritt says:

        I wonder how the sister feels too. This seems like a low class and less attractive version of the how the Wakefield twins from the Sweet Valley High books would have been as real people.

      • Alex says:

        if I were her sister I would be pissed because some of that blowback will be on her. US said she stuck her neck out to get her this position.

      • Tifygodess says:

        @merritt haha yes!! I love your comment
        Christopher Pike and RL Stine (before goosebumps) could have totally made a great story out of this too! Oh to be a 90s kid again.

  14. Abbott says:

    Well this escalated quickly.

  15. Froggy says:

    Can’t wait to see what happens when karma has its way with that nanny.

  16. littlemissnaughty says:

    Affleck is such a horrible cliché and DUMB as f*ck. You leave America’s Mommy and can’t even make sure it’s a case of Conscious Uncoupling? That the only way to leave Jennifer Garner at this point, Everything else will make you look like dirt. This though? Oh, honey. No. The nanny. I can’t.

  17. Size Does Matter says:

    Nanny looks entirely too much like the cat that got the cream for me to buy any “PYT was taken advantage of by big bad Ben” story. She was convenient and is a climber. Like poison ivy. Call me crazy, but I’m still not convinced I believe this whole thing.

    Assuming there is truth here and they were having sex, Ben is a fool and an ass. He has looked beat down for a while now. I suspect he’s the type of guy with a hole inside, and no amount of awards, kids, women, or money can fill it up.

    • tracking says:

      +1 She is absolutely loving this.

    • Luca76 says:

      Here’s the thing the nanny is a jerk but ultimately Ben was in a position of power and it was his responsibility to be appropriate. He is to blame for this and the nanny through trash is just your typical famewhore-he should have known better. He deserves every minute of this. I only feel bad for the kids.

      Why would anyone doubt they were having sex??? I mean this is Ben Affleck whose been publicly caught cheating on JLo and called out for cheating by Goop, and groped a reporter during an interview and carried on a public flirtation with Blake Lively and on and on. Suddenly now that he’s single he’s too shy?


      Oh and ‘he was tired of Jen’s negative energy’ is such typical quote of a lying jerk. Just blame the wife for being suspicious of the girls he’s sleeping with under her nose gross.

      • frivolity says:

        Why do we have to choose who is primarily at fault? Why can’t they both be responsible? It doesn’t have to be one or the other. They both acted horribly and the main reason is that they betrayed the KIDS’ trust.BTW, the same should be said of the Clinton/Lewinsky affair years ago. Not sure why people need to think they have to choose sides. Both sides can be wrong (or right).

      • Luca76 says:

        @ frivolity
        Because of the Power Dynamics of the situation. When all was said and done she was still his employee and he was the boss. He had all the control in the situation. I’m not defending the nanny or her behavior at all.

        @Size Dies Matter
        I mean do we have to go any further than Bill Clinton (who’s way smarter) to see that there are many many smart men ruled by their dong??? Ben has been proven to be one for a long, long time.
        And the reason why he slept with the very worst woman he could? Seems like a bit of revenge against Jen and a bit of self destructive hedonism and general d-baggery.

        Me-thinks you have a huge soft spot for Affleck.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        “Why would anyone doubt they were having sex???”

        Well, I like to think Ben would be too smart for that. He’s worried enough about his image to ask PBS to put the kibosh on details of his remote ancestor’s slave ownership but not enough to keep his dong out of the nanny (especially when there is a plethora of other willing women at his disposal)?

        And yes, I do have a soft spot for Ben. I’m a 90s girl. Formative year crushes die hard. Maybe I just don’t want him to be so stupid and cliche, or maybe he isn’t. Bring out the photos, Poison Ivy!

      • Kitten says:

        What Frivolity said. They both suck.

        @Size-Conversely, I think people are letting their hatred of Ben cloud their objectivity. Ultimately, Jen is the victim here. She was betrayed by TWO people.

      • Luca76 says:

        I’m a 90s girl too and he was such a jerk in the 90s.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        And the “they had sex in the Bahamas” detail seems particularly hard to believe. Why do it right there where you’re basically in a fishbowl? Just idiotic on top of betrayal. I don’t get it. Maybe I’m too logical or calculating or lacking a penis…

      • Dani says:

        I don’t think position of power has anything to do in this situation. She more than likely pursued him. If this was something about power than she wouldn’t be trolling the paps and trying to make a career out of this, because we all know when a woman gets with her boss/authority figure of sorts, one word from him and she’s silenced because ‘maybe he will leave her for me’. She played him HARD.

      • Kitten says:

        “Maybe I’m too logical or calculating or lacking a penis…”


      • Wren says:

        I agree with you. I blame them both, but Ben a bit more because I’m pretty sure he initiated it. He never seems content with anything he has, he’s always got to sabotage it somehow so he can up the ante.

        And I totally believe they banged in the Bahamas. Just because it would be so high stakes. People do really stupid stuff in pursuit of a rush, and men in particular do really stupid stuff in pursuit of sex. I’d like to think he’s smarter than that, but somehow I don’t.

      • Jonesy says:

        I doubt if it was very difficult for this nanny to bang Ben in the Bahamas (or anywhere else for that matter). All she’d have to do is wait until he was drunk enough. As we’ve seen in the video with the reporter, he gets all goofy, handsy-feely, etc. with anything that moves, when he’s drunk. He was easy pickings for that dolt, and she knew it.

      • Luca76 says:

        @SDM I’m guessing you’re lucky enough to never have encountered this kind of flagrant dbag cheater. Which is great for you may you never know what a man is capable of in pursuit of sex. Guys like him get off on doing the most inappropriate woman they can find in the most obvious situ. They will also lie about it with total conviction unless you literally catch them red handed.

    • NGBoston says:

      Yes– Size does matter. You are 100% on point with this assessment. ITA

  18. MonicaQ says:

    Even holding a puppy can’t wash the stank off of his doughy fake batman ass. Ugh.

  19. Ain't No Telling says:

    Ben is the biggest douchebag ever. How on earth do you justify sleeping with the nanny in the Bahamas? That was so insensitive of him. Even if he and Garner were done at that point, he could of had the decency to wait until after they left the island. Jen must feel so humiliated! But I am not surprised. I was once married to a man who was very much like Affleck. Every time I thought that it couldn’t get any worse, he made sure that it did.

  20. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    Ben is an idiot. And with the whole Batman thing, he couldn’t have picked a worse time.

    The nanny is clearly enjoying her five seconds of fame.

    • Jayna says:

      He picked a good time for it all to come out and wash over. Batman v Superman is not coming out until next March. That’s eight months away. In Hollywood gossip that’s a lifetime, as so many more scandals will take its place. This will be a faded memory by then.

      • Don't kill me I'm French says:

        No …there will be another scandals …

      • MaddyLou says:

        Do tell -Don’t Kill me. Is there even more to come out on Affleck. Its been rumored his real affair was with Olga K from To the Wonder movie and that he got someone pregnant maybe her? I don’t buy that Jen and Ben were separated for 10 months. I think it was after he was caught in Nova Scotia but there is a reason why the separation was back dated for the media. No way they were separated when her and Violet were in Washington with him. Just what is the real reason and will it come out?

  21. Kitten says:

    Ah the gossip gift that keeps on giving. Someone said yesterday that Radar was reporting that the nanny was suing for wrongful termination? Is that true? Anyway, can we stop pretending this woman doesn’t know what she’s doing? Ben’s wandering dong finally got hit with a wild card. Don’t feel any sympathy for him OR her. It’s not like she was his accountant, you know? Presumably she lived with them, traveled with them, had a relationship with Jen’s kids, and looked Jen in the eyes everyday. F*ck her and f*ck Ben. Team Terrible Shoes all the way. I hope the kids are being protected from this shot storm

    • Little Darling says:

      Exactly this Kitten. She lived with them, she had to be close with Jen, the kids, and Ben. She spent numerous hours with them as a family. No matter how awful their relationship was, no matter how bad things were, no matter how hard Ben tried to get with her, the fact that she didn’t side with Jen is what sticks with me. Imagine her telling Jen what was going on, and getting her fame that way? Siding with Jen would have gotten her respect, fame, and the opportunity to not look like such a nasty famewhore, emphasis on the second part of the word.

      • Kitten says:

        Exactly. I said on yesterday’s thread that she also has a professional duty to observe the boundaries between employer and employee. At the very least, if she felt that she was being manipulated or harassed, she had an obligation to go to Jen.

        But mostly, how hard is it to NOT f*ck the husband of your employer? And that’s not to take away from Ben’s responsibility in any way, shape or form, but this girl is not a good person, end of. I have zero respect for women that do sh*t like, just like I don’t respect men who cheat. Nope, she will not get the benefit of the doubt from me.

      • Tifygodess says:

        @kitten and @littledarling – your comments are great and spot on! I agree completely!

    • Jegede says:

      ZERO symapthy for her.

      And am not here for the “coerced-unfortunate-employee-victim-of-big-bad-employer” line

      She KNEW what she was doing and had/has an end game.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Agree completely. This is not some poor kid fresh off the farm. This is a woman who capitalized on her situation, to the detriment of everyone, especially the kids she used to get in with him. Disgusting.

        (Not saying he’s blameless, either.)

      • Kitten says:

        Thank you, Jegede and SDM. Do I think that women can be unfortunate victims of harassment in a workplace scenario? Abso-f*cking-lutely. And if you read my posts on yesterday’s thread, I know on a personal level how awful that can be.

        But it’s worth evaluating each circumstance individually. This woman was not your average employee, she had an incredibly intimate relationship with the family that signed her checks. There’s an inherent closeness and trust that exists between someone and the person who takes care their kids—she broke that. She’s an extra-special kind of gross to me.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        It’s the look she has in the pap photos plus the fact that her narrative isn’t “he took advantage of me as his employee” instead it’s “true love.” Plus that she was hired to care for the kids, another layer of betrayal and violation of her professional duties.

        I read your comments from yesterday, Kitten, and shuddered. Could you imagine if it came out publicly what happened to you and photographers were hounding you? You would have looked and said nothing like this piece of work.

        And before anyone attacks me for apportioning all the blame on her, I’m not. I’m saying she deserves her fair share.

      • Kitten says:

        Yes, Size. She’s putting that narrative out there: that she and Ben are/were in love. In the pap shots, she has a Cheshire grin. It’s just not the look of someone who’s very upset because she was taken advantage of. If the paps has caught shots of me after that incident happened they would have gotten photos of me bawling my eyes out. It was traumatic for me and there was no “true love” about it.

        To add to my story yesterday, that guy called me OBSESSIVELY after they let me go. He left long voicemails saying that “it was mutual” and I “led him on” and that I “enjoyed the flirtation”. Dude was so f*cking delusional. I ended up having to change my phone number. Few years after that he friend requested me on Facebook. I obviously deleted his request and blocked him. Then he found the number of where I work from our website by Googling my name (he even admitted this in his message like there was nothing creepy about it) and left me a long voicemail saying he missed me and would I like to grab a drink sometime? After I didn’t respond to that he FRIEND-REQUESTED my f*cking brother! Now, I have no idea what my brother messaged to him but thankfully, I never heard from him again after that.

        I’m a very forgiving person-I don’t hold grudges and there are VERY few people that I would say that I hate, but I HATE that man and will never forgive him for putting me in that position. I never told his wife BTW and I always agonized over whether I did the right thing by her. Sigh.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Kitten, that man was a predator with a colossal sense of entitlement and massive ego. Sounds like several lawyers I’ve worked with. I can’t imagine what he would have done to you if you’d tried to tell the wife. Sometimes self preservation is the only viable option.

        With this nanny, maybe if she was younger or less smug/satisfied looking I could buy that he used his position of authority to manipulate her into believing it’s “true love” so she was taken advantage of. But she’s not, so I can’t.

      • Kitten says:

        Well that’s the the time, I just thought that telling her would make everything worse. I just wanted my severance and to completely purge that guy and that entire experience from my life.

        Yup. The nanny doesn’t look scared or sad or apologetic. She looks like she’s celebrating. It’s very odd to say the least.

    • Jayna says:

      Team Terrible Shoes. LOL

    • Luca76 says:

      Just for the record I have zero sympathy for her and think she’s a creep but however bad she is Ben is worse because:

      He was the boss had total control in the situation

      He’s been famous for nearly two decades and should be able to spot an opportunist like this from a mile away

      She was caring for HIS CHILDREN that’s just wrong.

      • Kitten says:

        Ben wasn’t her only boss though, Luca. JEN hired her and she had a responsibility to Jen as well as Ben.

        Don’t get me wrong—I don’t think that the blame is always 50/50 in an affair. I think that more often than not, the cheater—the one who broke the vows and violated trust is the one at fault.

        But this is not typical circumstances. For instance I would feel the same way if my boyfriend cheated on me with my best friend. My best friend and I have a closeness and a confidence that exists between us. I’ve let her into my life. If that happened, I would see it as a violation of trust by BOTH of them. I really think the nanny situation is similar. There’s an existing relationship between Jen and the person she trusts to takes care of her kids. As I said above, if this was Ben’s accountant or even his assistant, who had NEVER met Jen, who had NO relationship with Jen, then I would agree with you 100%.

        Ben being stupid or horny or lonely or whatever is not an excuse for her actions, just like it’s not an excuse for his.

        And I’m ok to disagree 🙂
        I do respect and very much appreciate where you’re coming from but I won’t change my mind on this one.

      • Luca76 says:

        Yeah I get what you are saying. I mean this girl is despicable and I won’t defend her. Also whatever I may think of Jen Garner this is one of the worst kind of violations imaginable.
        Agree to disagree 😉

      • Kitten says:

        I get tired of the Jen is a Saint narrative too and although I like her, I’ve said as much around here. She is calculating for sure, but nobody deserves this.

        I also HATE that kids are involved. What a mess. Sigh.

    • Christin says:

      Love the ‘wild card’ reference. He gambled and lost with this one. Completely dumb on his part.

  22. CK says:

    So much for an image. I get that they’re divorcing and they’re both consenting adults. However, Nannies are off just limits, even after your divorced. I mean, I feel like even a terrible PR person would advise against immediately hooking up with someone that you could have conceivably been sleeping around with during your marriage.

  23. Ice says:

    What a world. She thinks leaking these stories is a smart career move. When I was 23, I was doing job applications and practising my interview answers. These people live in a bubble and at the pinnacle is the throne of fame. She’s going to end up like a less infamous Monica Lewinsky.
    Ben Affleck is getting less and less hot by the day. Once upon a time he was fresh faced at least.

    • Jayna says:

      The girl is 28, though, not early 20s. She’s going to disappear from tabloid pages in another week. She thinks people are enthralled by her and she will capitalize on this. She’s a nobody and she will get paid off and a new piece of gossip will hit.

      • Neah23 says:

        She might not, Kim K got famous from a sex tape with a celebrity brother. Some of those Real Housewives were once the mistress of some celebrity and now they’re on TV making thousands if not millions of dollars. Mama June got famous and a reality show for feeding her 4/5 year old daughter Red Bull and soda. We have become a society that rewards bad behavior, in the name of entertainment.

    • bettyrose says:

      Monica Lewinsky was 20, Bill Clinton was the most powerful man on earth, and she was not his wife’s employee nor responsible for the care of his children.Nor did Lewinsky sell the story . She was illegally recorded by someone she foolishly considered a friend. In so many ways not a parallel scenario.

      • jwoolman says:

        Monica Lewinsky was a college graduate at the time and born in 1973, so she must have been at least 22 or 23 when the affair started. It was not her first affair with a married man and she was politically ambitious. But you’re right, the situations are not comparable. She did go after a married man and there is good reason to believe she may have made the first move (based on other things she had said and it was a pattern for her, seeking power through men obviously on a lesser scale in the past), although she also may have simply taken the opportunity when it arose since Bill was a passive though annoying sleaze that way. But I’m quite sure it was completely consensual and quite desired on both sides, I do not think Bill’s position of political power gave him special personal power over her, except if he was a nobody, she would not have been interested. She was attracted to the power, not overwhelmed by it. Monica was quite clear in her testimony that she was not a victim, despite attempts to paint her as such, which I considered admirable on her part even though she was deluded enough to think Bill was going to divorce his wife, marry her and make her First Lady, and they would live happily ever after as a political power couple.

        So Monica’s actions did threaten an existing marriage and a family with a child. But she was not employed by his wife and had nothing to do with his child, so the betrayal of his family was primarily on Bill’s head (although shared by Monica, as is always the case when a woman knowingly has an affair with a married man). This nanny is operating at a whole different level because she was employed by Ben’s wife, worked side by side with her, and was in an important position of trust with their children.

    He’s an easy mark. Remember, he actually believed Blake Lively when she told him that she had no idea he and Matt Damon had history together. He really is Nick Dunne. David Fincher saw something very clearly…

  25. kri says:

    “she was not doing her job as a nanny”.HAHAHAHHAHAHAAHAHHAAAAAAA! No, she was too busy nannying Ben’s mini Batman. This girl is going for it. Holy crap. Also-David Fincher-oracle or Ben Affleck hater. Those remarks of his about Ben-wow. Every day proves him to have been spot on about Ben.

      Do you know that Fincher wanted to a remake of a Hitchcock movie with Ben where Ben was a celebrity who wanted to kill his future ex-wife.Fincher is a witch

      Gurrrl thought “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” was a how-to-nanny video. She did her homework assiduously.

        @kitten It was bad, wasn’t it? All manner of stupid.

      • Kitten says:

        It was pretty terrible, Pinky. It was absurdly unbelievable (but I guess that was the point?) and I HATED every character. It’s never a good sign when you hope for some sort of apocalyptic event or even genocide on an entire cast of characters.

  26. tracking says:

    Well, having a loser man child of a husband who completely takes you for granted does tend to bring out the “negative energy” and “berating” instinct of a spouse. Way to show kindness and respect to the woman who had your three children, held down the family fort for a decade, and polished your turd of an image. And who adored you, and whose heart you callously broke. Wow, he is a disgusting cliche and I will never patronize another movie of his. Ever.

    • tracking says:

      To be clear, it’s less the cheating than the constantly putting it out there that she’s a “nasty nag” in light of his all-around inexcusably bad behavior.

  27. Sarah says:

    So he said things to the nanny that made her believe they “were going to be fully together”? How cliche is that. I bet he also said his wife didn’t understand him. Blah blah blah.

  28. jen2 says:

    Woman scorned who was involved with a complete idiot. He has to have been on drugs to be this reckless. He needs a trip back to rehab. Watch out, she is the type that might just show up pregnant….oy vey!!!

    Finch said he was duplicitous and I guess he was right!!! What a major clusterfu*k. Poor children.

  29. frivolity says:

    Notice the carefully worded denial from Ben’s camp? All in the present tense. Much like with Clinton, I think this is a case of, “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” Ben’s not dating this woman now, but it doesn’t mean he didn’t bone her in the past (few weeks even).

  30. Original T.C. says:

    I bet this nanny chick is just a ripple in the giant tsunami of Ben’s long list of side chicks and mistresses. So sure like yesterday we can spend 80% of the comments calling her whore/slut/fameho and seducer of poor vulnerable Ben but the truth of his track record will come out eventually since there is now blood in the water.

    But ex-nanny is not going to parley this into any career because other women will hate her FOREVER. She will wear the scarlet letter for the rest of her life while Ben will reform and be forgotten. We like to believe the men in OUR lives will remain forever faithful if it were not for seducing Harlot’s down the street hypothesizing them into cheating. Not because the men lack self-control or are just selfish or care more about getting off than their love for us.

    This quote is priceless: “He was tired of Jen’s negative energy and constant berating—but that does not mean he cheated…”

  31. PHD Gossip says:

    Jen hires hot, blond, twenty something nanny. She was setting up her miserable dog husband with impulse control issues. No PR team can extricate him from the mess now. Its all poor Jennifer garner and her dimples and he is a cheating bastard.
    She wins. The end. Slow clap for Jen.

    • tracking says:

      I don’t believe this. She wouldn’t do anything that would hurt her kids. Trust, she had plenty of ammunition on other sidepieces and did not need this nanny. And the nanny, while attractive enough, is pretty mediocre in the sea of hot 20somethings in LA.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah that’s what prevents me from buying that scenario also. Otherwise, it’s very believable. But it seems (so far at least) that the affair occurred AFTER they had already separated. So that part doesn’t really support the idea that Jen hired a hot nanny to bait him.

      • Original T.C. says:

        “And the nanny, while attractive enough, is pretty mediocre in the sea of hot 20somethings in LA.”

        People keep saying this but IMO, she looks better than many basic actresses and models we are told are beautiful while wearing millions worth of specialty makeup and plastic surgery. And the media’s version of “hot” (AKA rail thin with no muscle tone or curves and size C breast implants) may not be Ben’s. This chick’s body type is similar to JLO’s and we know Ben is a fan of stripers who have curves in the places men traditional like.

        Many men working on their image will marry an “appropriately good looking” but unsexy woman that the mini-van majority likes while sneaking around with the kind of woman that truly appeals to them. *Cough* Like most male politicians or men planning to run for public office.

        Those of us skeptical of his marriage to Gardner all along guessed it was all to project the right image for his Hollywood career and his eventual political one. Just pull up any of his passionless responses when asked about his wife or marriage. Not Gardner’s fault he was using her. Maybe they were using each other but the adoration always came across as one sided IMO.

      • jwoolman says:

        Yes, the “Jen set it up” scenario is too hard to believe because it would hurt the kids. But I wonder if the “Ben banged the nanny” scenario is also too hard to believe for so many reasons, gleeful though everybody seems to be about it. Others have pointed out that Ben’s M.O. actually is rather different, although when he’s drunk who knows. But it’s possible that the nanny is totally delusional. I had a friend once who was like that- imagining herself into one affair after another when the men just weren’t doing anything but running as fast away from her creepy intense self as their legs could manage. I caught on when her endless stories just weren’t matching up to facts I was sure about. Anybody listening to her would assume it was real otherwise. She had a pattern of quitting jobs after a year or less because she would fall in love with some baffled guy who didn’t reciprocate. She was even infuriated with one coworker who told her he was already in a committed relationship with someone in another city (“he won’t even give me a chance”). It does happen, maybe this is another case. Staying in that hotel is beyond weird, for instance. There was no other place available? Sounds like something my delusional friend would have done.

        Time will tell, of course. But one possible scenario is that Ben wasn’t actually part of this particular plot.

    • siri says:

      I believe Jen knew exactly what she was/is doing. She’s neither dumb, nor naive.

      • Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

        Yes. Jen has played Ben from day one. Jennifer Garner is an evil genius whose art is scheming and she’s about to paint her masterpiece. Bwahahaha

      • cheryl says:

        Thank you. I’m surprised by all the Saint Jen chorus singers. She entered her contract, er marriage, with her eyes wide open and played a fantastic mutually beneficial media game. Which continues. But not mutually beneficial from this point on. And the curtain is pulled back to reveal a bit of Ben. No one is surprised.

    • lolo says:

      Jen doesn’t need to set him up, he does that all on his own. And if she had set it up, we would get better gotcha shots.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Jennifer Garner = Amazing Amy Dunne? I could totally see it if it weren’t for the hurt the kids will suffer. But what I’m struggling with is the lack of non-disclosure agreement. Aren’t they standard in situations where celebs hire personal employees?

      • Neah23 says:

        She not selling any information on the in and out of Ben and Jen marriage or information on the kids so she is not breaking any non-disclosure agreement she may have signed.

      • Gru says:

        As Neah23 points out, an NDA wouldnt be framed so as to cover the inappropriate behavior of an employer. I would also hope that most of the banging happened off-duty but if Ben is contending it didnt and is therefore covered by NDA then that makes him look even worse. Anyway, what can he do, sue and make this the lead story on CNN? Sue and end up being deposed by her lawyers who can bring up any number of other one night stands? Sue and end up having every single file of the case show up on TMZ in pdf?

      • Size Does Matter says:

        If that’s the case regarding the scope of the NDA then Ben needs to hire a better lawyer in addition to a new nanny.

    • Starrywonder says:

      I really dont believe this just because the drug rumors sounds more believable. She put up with him cheating throughout their marriage. I think she wanted his self destructing butt away from the kids.

  32. Jolly says:

    Wonder if those pictures showing Jennifer crying while on the phone last week was when she found out? The smirk on the nanny’s face says it all, kinda gives you the creeps.

    • Gru says:

      Great call. It could be when she found out that the girl was shopping the story. I believe editors would probably alert her publicist that this was happening. It would explain how dazed she looked and why she ended up sitting on the steps of a restaurant where anybody with a camera phone would have snapped her.

  33. Eric says:

    A sex type maybe?Lime same as wut Alice said…

  34. Dash says:

    How many others are going to come out of the woodwork? Jen is going to end up looking like a saint when this is all over.

    • NGBoston says:

      Dash—-I don’t condone the messiness of this and the low blow, but Jen is no Saint. She has had lovers and I am tired of the media portraying her as a Saint.

      Yes, she does do great work with children. Yes, she does appear to be a loving Mom, and yes-she did help Ben get out of his Box Office Poison drought mainly by standing behind him and letting him be absent from the home long periods of time to work on all his projects and dreams.

      He owes her for that. None of this is her fault–and I am also tired of reading the”she shouldn’t have hired an attractive Nanny” BS.

      This marriage had its problems. They were already in the middle of a trial separation. Not saying he didn’t do this—saying until I see the photographic evidence—so the hell what. They BOTH were unfaithful to each other in this marriage and that is a fact.

      I don’t work for anyone or have a Horse in this Race either—it is just a fact.

      Just don’t want to see the kids hurt and at least let’s give them credit for not bashing each other at present and trying to co-parent even on the same premises when they can.

      The hate is real out here, Jayzus.

      • Paleokifaru says:

        Jen cheating on him is a fact? Where are you getting this information? You also stated on another thread that Matt Damon cheats on his wife but didn’t offer up any sources.

        under no obligation to provide you or the Readers of this blog links or sources. I’m not spewing BS or just dropping random
        gossip bc I’m bored.

        Perhaps there is some of what I listed previously that made me give serious side-eye… confirmed to me by more than one party so a good percentage of it I believe to be true.

        And I did list details—in original post of which there are over 320 comments.

        I’m not trying to be rude or bitchy but I’m sorry I’m not a Gossip Coloumnist and I do believe numerous other sites (CDAN, Lainey Gossip) to name a few also had Blind Item Reveals about Jen G. having a few random lovers as well. I’m not going searching but feel free to do so without throwing shade on me.

        Again feel free to believe and post what you wish and call BS on what you wish.

        This topic is certainly nothing I’m going to lose sleep over and I am assuming many who
        frequent here would not either.


      • Paleokifaru says:

        One of the things I like about CB is that many posters reference. I read plenty of other sites but haven’t seen anything you’re claiming. Opinion is one thing and you’re entitled to it. But please don’t state that opinion as fact and pretend there are sources unless you’re prepared to back that up.

  35. DavidBowie says:

    So cheating with a married man/woman is called dating these days? Ha!

    • Jayna says:

      I know. Right? I find that odd.

      • NGBoston says:

        The “Nanny” and any other of the myriad of women who hooked up with Ben knowing he was married are all just common “Star-F*ckers”.

        Plain and simple. Why any of them would have grandiose notions of being able to lure Affleck in to anything permanent is ridiculous.

        I personally don’t think marriage is for everyone, and Affleck is one of those such people. I realize people think he is a walking Douchebag- I don’t really. And it has nothing to do with being from Boston.

        The struggle is real though. He is just better off sticking to Directing and writing Screenplays and being a Dad and dating Women without having to be labeled a D*ck bc he won’t committ to one. Unless of course, he is a D*ck, which I don’t think any one of us can say unless we have met him in person or had a direct, interactive experience with him.

        Thank you

      • Illyra says:

      • NGBoston says:

        @lolo- Yes, I do agree with that point completely.

        @Illyra- Thanks

        and to above poster “Paleokifaru”

        I am glad that you like CB bc posters reference links. It does make it convenient. Again, I don’t feel obligated to go searching at Lainey’s or AGT Blind Items sites for you or CDAN. Does not mean what I posted is untrue or not based from facts. I appreciate also that is something you enjoy—and I want to end this post and topic by again reminding you that just because I did not include links does not make what I posted originally less factual.

    she is aiming to get tons of hush money from the image conscious celebrity couple as well – and will most likely get it, let’s not forget that

    • jen2 says:

      I think that boat has already sailed. You get “hush” money to keep from talking and she (her friends and sources) is a regular chatty Cathy.

      • Jayna says:

        No. She’s leaked a lot out, but the photographic evidence has been withheld so far. It’s he said/she said all through sources (really her) until then.

        She’s going to sell her evidence to the highest bidder. She so far is pretending she’s said nothing, all sources. I’m waiting for her full-spread interview in People, with glossy photo-ops, and with details of her grand love affair with the title, My Love Affair with Ben Affleck. LOL

        Ben needs to shut this down now and shell out the big bucks to pay her off.

      • kett says:

        she might have even more damaging info yet to come out, we never know

      • laura in LA says:

        But if Ben pays her off, then that’s pretty much an admittance of guilt, and if he’s not guilty…

        Then I say they request a lie detector test because it’s time for this chick to start talking instead of hiding behind “sources” as if they really exist.

  37. lolo says:

    This is Mel Gibson 2 0. Mel’s wife kept him from self destructing publicly, and when she left he effed it all up for himself spectacularly. Mark my words, Ben will flame out similarly.

  38. wow says:

    I still don’t feel sorry for anyone in this situation except the chi k dren.

    Jenn cheated during her first marriage with her co-star…allegedly.
    Ben cheated on Jenn throughout their marriage…allegedly.
    and this nanny is thirsty…clearly. All three suck.

    Slightly off-topic but regarding the nanny’s friend/stylist; most stylist aren’t dressed up, wearing heels when they work. Most are dressed down and wear comfortable flats because they are running around town lugging clothes and racks, or standing on their feet on set. The glamour is left for when you’re meeting perspective clients or agents. Same for designers.

    • Starrywonder says:

      Garner’s first husband has flatly denied she ever cheated. They never saw each other and divorced. I am team terrible shoes here. She doesn’t deserve this. And even if she did cheat during her first marriage, it doesn’t mean it’s okay for her husband of 10 years to keep slipping people his dong like it’s a party favor.

    • laura in LA says:

      That’s probably her mother because she lives with her parents, and who knows who else among her is playing this silly game of famewhoring and extortion?

  39. Jayna says:

    The stories keep changing. Now, it’s they had sex in the Bahamas and she found out. Before it was the girl left with him and went to Vegas with him and Jen found out and fired her.

    Some of these details aren’t true that are flying around out there day after day, because they contradict one another.

    • Luca76 says:

      Different rumors from different sources or ‘friends’ close to the nanny spilling what they think they know and cashing in .

    • Neah23 says:

      The only difference is how Jen found out and when the nanny was fired. The rest is the some if Jen found out on the Bahama trip doesn’t mean she didn’t go to Vegas with Ben.

      I think this might account for Ben wedding ring game he been playing when he was with the girl the ring was off .

    • laura in LA says:

      This is why I don’t believe anything at all happened with the nanny because her “friends” (ie. herself) keep saying different things every day:

      “Now, Radar Online is reporting that while their relationship may not have been entirely appropriate, Affleck and Ouzounian didn’t go as far as some tabloids are reporting…

      ‘They didn’t sleep together or get physical,’ says one source close to the nanny.”


      So they weren’t intimate at all? It sounds to me like this love affair was all in the nanny’s head.

      I’m not defending Ben here, but I think she was trying to get closer to him from the start. And this alone was what pissed off Jen.

      Where are these cellphone photos anyway? I’m calling her bluff and thinking she doesn’t really have any to sell.

      This chick’s either delusional or conniving, maybe both, but when she can’t come up with any proof, it’s all going to backfire in her face.

      If Ben’s telling the truth, then maybe his lawyers should ask the nanny to submit to a lie detector test.

    • laura in LA says:

      Good to know I’m not the only one who can’t get the timeline of events straight. Are they maybe being confusing on purpose?

  40. Jayna says:

    Stop the madness, Ben, for the sake of your family. Pay the bimbo off. You have the money.

  41. Twinkle says:

    I think Ben would have sex with anyone who was around, to be honest – she’s nothing special.

    On first glance, she looks very much like Jennifer Esposito (Bradley Cooper’s first wife, and currently starring in ‘Mistresses’) – poor Jennifer! :-/

  42. G says:

    Look, we can all slut-shame her all we like, but the truth is that if a handsome and filthy rich A lister came onto you, a lot of girls wouldn’t be able to resist. We can all get on out high horses and slate her all we like, but we can all be guilty of letting lust take over our brains. What i am judging her for is allegedly calling paparazzi and then looking like she’s never been happier when her affair has been outed. I would have some sympathy for her if she was in hiding and completely overwhelmed. But she seems to be lapping it up. Ben Affleck is the bad guy in this situation, but the nanny is living up to every perception of the ‘other woman’

    Then again, if Bennifer were separated at the time were they really doing anything wrong? Horrible, sketchy timing but was it cheating?

    Also, why would you hire a hot nanny? Very, very bad decision. ……………..Unless she knew this would happen and wanted to out him as a cheat???

    • Starrywonder says:

      What? No I would not have sex with a rich married A lister. Because married. That’s crap. That’s acting like women are not ruled by morals but by who has the most money to throw at us.

      • Kitten says:

        Totally. Also, EMPLOYER. People keep glossing over that. I would never sleep with my boss or anybody I work with, for that matter.

      • Starrywonder says:

        @Kitten exactly! It’s your boss. I have a boss now. He’s not A list hot but he does have tons of money. I still wouldn’t be tempted because he’s my boss and there is the whole he’s paying you and you’re sleeping with him thing that I think is highly awful.

      • captain says:

        @ Starrywonder – Remember Devil’s Advocate? “Vanity is my favourite sin.” Think about it ))
        You may be as stellar, I don’t doubt it. But this girl is obviously very vane and silly. And so many people are. The morals are quite secondary, when you think you are so irresistible to a billionaire, he can’t help himself.

    • captain says:

      @G – Yes, I agree. The girl looks at Garner and thinks “I’m so much more beautiful than her, and younger. Why is she a movie star and Affleck’s wife, and I’m some nanny?” Then he comes on to her, makes her feel like he just can’t resist her amazing beauty, even though in reality he just gets off the forbidden, the danger of getting caught and the novelty.
      The girls grow up in a sick society, where they are always on the market: beauty and sexual attractiveness are the ultimate aims, fame is much much more desirable and valuable than morals. Why is it surprising that she would not refuse his advances? That she enjoys becoming famous? In her head she is so beautiful, she will find the way to climb further.

      And I must finally succumb: this foto with a cancer patient was too much, I finally believe Jennifer is incredibly calculating, and this move is not to make her look good (she is always universally accepted as a good person, because that’s what she obviously is!), this is to make HIM look even worse. Can’t blame her though, but am surprised.

      • jwoolman says:

        The odds are high that the visit to the children’s hospital was planned earlier. She has been involved with such things for quite a while. So the timing of the photo (released by the child’s mom online) is most likely coincidental. I’m sure journalists or semblances thereof search the web (probably automatically) for any mention of celebrities, especially those in the news currently, hoping to pick up things like this that haven’t already been covered. They also could be tipped off by others who see it. But automatic searches would work.

      • Ana says:

        The timing was coincidental. Before the gossip mags released her visit to the hospitals, there were pictures already from different parents of the kids who are in hospital on Instagram. Pictures were up on Sunday, but mags published the article Wednesday. The pictures on magazine were taken by the mom and thanking JG for visiting her son. JG does this. She goes around here in LA and Orange County, even in Boston to visit kids who are in hospital. I know because they are not published.

    Ooo-whee, the knives are coming out now. I believe Jen’s people rolled out Nannygate and now Ben’s people are sniping back, about how tiresome and negative non-addict Jen’s “energy” is for poor Ben. Poor, poor Ben. Sniff.

  45. Colette says:

    Apparently there is a cell phone pic of the nanny kissing Ben while sitting on his lap.I guess she will probably sell that the tabloids with her exclusive interview.I noticed his denials say he IS not in a romantic or physical relationship with her(current tense).

    • Kitten says:

      Well according to the link Laura posted above, they’re saying there was no sex but flirtation and some inappropriateness, a couple phone calls, and text messages. That photo would not be proof of an affair, but it would be proof of inappropriate behavior between the two of them.

    If she had been smart about this she would have been very discreet about this affair. She shouldn’t have ever called the paps to take photographs. She shouldn’t have even allowed Garner to find out until at least the divorce papers were finalized. Garner is not the saint she portrays herself to be, but in this situation she is the wronged party. The nanny (I’m not even going to try to remember her name) should have milked her relationship with Affleck into luxury gifts, cash, and used hm for his connections to get a job in the movie industry. Now that she’s exposed him, he will never help her or go near her again. She may think she’s won the war, but both Garner and Affleck will remain powerful forces in Hollywood. They will make sure she never works in that town again. She will be lucky if she even gets an offer to be on a trashy reality show.”


    But she won’t even get a reality show. Nobody wants to see her as she’s not interesting.

        Gawd, Christin, that’s a frightening thought! (Lemme guess, rhymes with “Lacey Sansony”? Or something like that…)

        As we’ve seen so many times before, all it takes is a personality disorder = no guilt, shame or remorse.

      • Christin says:

        You got it, Laura.

        No matter what the bad behavior, somewhere there is a man or woman who ignores it and will even subsidize their existence.

    • Twinkle says:

      She really is a dumb bimbo. Why would Affleck want to have a relationship with her after outing herself. It demonstrates her untrustworthiness and fame whorishness. No other moms will want to hire her as a nanny after this. Stupid. Unless, Affleck is twice as dumb as her and he’s still into her after this.

  48. Triple Cardinal says:

    This whole thing is a hoot!

    Go back a ways, to when Ben was with JLo. IIRC, a reporter asked Ben, with JLo right by, about their sex life. And Ben said something in the vein of, “It’s boring! We’re boring! Not much to talk about!” JLo just kind of side-eyed him.

    Does anybody else remember this?

    Any way you look at it, this nanny got what she deserved…sex with a loser, and the sex may well have been awful!

  49. Nicolette says:

    “And the nanny? She’s playing a stupid media game that’s going to backfire. She’s going to have to find another career because she’s not going to parlay this into a reality show and no one will want to hire her after this.”

    Disagree. These days behavior like this seems to guarantee that she’ll parlay this is into something. Kim’s tape led to the Kardashian empire. Need I say more? We’re not living in times where standards are very high, if anything the bar is set lower than it ever has been.

    • Neah23 says:

      That’s exactly what I said above people in this post seemed to have forgot how Kim become famous.

      • ScrewStewrat19 says:

        But Kim didn’t pissed off two celebrities with major connections in Hollywood. I don’t think this girl is going to get anything. She played this all wrong. Hell look at what Ben did to PBS. You really think he’s gonna let this chick get a show? I think between Ben and Jens connections they will be able to ensure this girl gets nowhere in any kind of tv.

      • Neah23 says:

        No your right but Karrine Steffans ( nickname “Superhead” ) wrote a tell all book about all the married and none married A list athletes and rappers she sleep with. Karrine book was on bestseller list and even started her own company and from the money and attention she got.

        Ben and Jen connections couldn’t stop this woman story from getting out so I doubt it will stop anything else. She may not be looking to become famous, she might be looking to send a message to Ben and that’s why she looks so smug.

        I do agree she played this all wrong if she was going to sell this story she should have gone for the victim route.

  50. Becks says:

    Affleck needs to ask himself: WWMDD?

    I just want to know what is being said at the Matt Damon Household?

    Supposedly, there is some tension between Matt Damon’s wife and Jennifer. In spite of their husband’s personal friendship, and living very close to each other, and having similar-aged children, that these two never became friends leads me to believe there is antagonism there.

    Matt’s wife resented the way the paps singled out Ben and Jen’s family over theirs. Not that she would have wanted to be hounded, but the fact that the paps leave you alone whilst chasing the guy who grew up with your husband, whose career started at the same time as your husband’s would leave you thinking, “what are we, chopped liver?”

    And I think Luciana being a SAHM, no matter how happy or fulfilled, there is a type of jealousy that can manifest itself when you see another woman who is also a mother but also has a “glamorous” job, you see her in all her air-brushed perfection on magazine covers. And especially if she knows something not so nice about Jennifer (maybe Matt has shared some juicy gossip during pillow talk), I can certainly understand being irked.

    • Kitten says:

      I guess you didn’t see NGBoston’s gossip a few threads ago.

      WWMDD? Judging by the rumors, he’d give Ben a fist bump and buy him a few rounds at the pub.

      • Jayna says:

        LOL But he’d say, Ben what were you thinking? You always get NDAs signed before you bang them.

      • Becks says:

        I went scrolling up looking for NGBoston’s post, only to realize you didn’t say, “upthread”.

        Kitten- please recap what NGBoston said- Thanks!!!

        I’m kinda interested in the couple dynamic between these two four. And as Luca76 says below, I wonder at what Garner and Luciana honestly think of each other.

      • Kitten says:

        @Jayna-Yep. Difference is that Matt thinks with his brain, not his dong.

        I feel kinda weird coasting on someone else’s gossip nugget, but that was a huge thread and I don’t feel like scrolling back to copy and paste so…I’ll just try to remember what she said and if she shows up she can elaborate or tell me to shut up or whatever lol.

        Short recap: NGBoston told a story about a close friend who runs a local establishment here in Boston that Matt frequently visits with different girls on his arm that are NOT his wife. Apparently, he does not treat the women very well at all either.

        Now….one could pose the question “how do we know that this is factual info?” and of course we don’t. BUT NGBoston is a regular commenter here and was very careful to not name names. It’s not like she’s some rando who was planting stories for attention. She said very carefully that she could get in a sh*t ton of trouble or I believe her words were “banned for life” if her friends found out she was posting about what is presumably *confidential info*.
        Personally, I believe it about Matt. I like him a lot, but I never put him up on a pedestal like some here do.

        Ugh, all this talk about infidelity is so depressing and gross. We need mimosas or something to make us forget about how nasty some dudes are….

      • Becks says:

        Thanks Kitten!

        I’ll buy the first round…. (Even though my ears and face get really pink when I have alcohol – like REALLY)

        But how do you think Damon gets away with it without being exposed? He’s still quite recognizable, even if not at the same level as Affleck.

        And speaking of faces, who thinks that little Samuel Affleck actually looks more like Matt than Ben. No insinuation, just think they both have the same squinched up eyes.

      • garciathes says:

        I read that NGBoston person’s ‘revelations’ and it’s the most fetid crap ever. I’m amazed that anybody took the bait. She ‘knows’ the owners of a restaurant in Boston, and the fact that Affleck hooked up with Jlo, and that Garner had lovers… Wow.

      • Kitten says:

        Well, I didn’t say I believe the “Garner had lovers” or that JLo hooked up with Affleck part. I do believe that Matt is unfaithful though.
        But I believe that about any couple that renews their wedding vows–almost inevitably happens after someone cheated.

        “She ‘knows’ the owners of a restaurant in Boston”
        How is that so imaginative and fanciful? I also have friends that are owners of a restaurant in Boston. It’s not unusual around here…

      • frivolity says:

        Curious about these Matt rumors because other ones I’ve read intimated that Matt was gay. Some said it was well known when he was in high school and lived in Boston, others said he was seeing one or more hot Cuban men when he lived in Miami.

      • Evasmom says:

        Wait what? What are these rumors you say about Matt?

      • garciathes says:

        How is that fanciful et caetera? Because of correlation. If one part stinks, don’t swallow the other. You’ve been played. Perhaps not willingly.

    • Luca76 says:

      I don’t think that’s the dynamic at all. I mean in better times Ben said he spent all his time at Mat Damon’s house. I think they bro’ed out-it was his hideaway . I think the resentment came from Jen’s camp and as much as she affects a down to earth image I don’t think she’d have any interest in socializing with a former bartender (yes I think Garner is a huge snob). From all the descriptions of Damon’s wife I get the feeling she’s genuinely down to earth, really does keep her husband grounded, doesn’t put up with B.S. , yet also wouldn’t feel the need to hover or babysit her husband.

      Kitten do tell ( although MD cheating stories would give me the sads).

    • Gru says:

      Matt is just great at tending image. Every few months he will remind you that he married a “civillian”, his choice of words not mine. He will remind you that he isnt papped as much as those fame whores, Ben and Brad. He will remind you that that makes him a better dad. He will even remind you that his good friend George is papped because he misbehaves, unlike Matt who is always very boring (read honorable). Matt could give the Masterclass in throwing shade at friends while tending to his own brand.

      I dont know about his dong habbits but I would guess that the man who married a bartender probably doesnt have a conventional marriage. Also, does that woman have voice like at all? What does she do for a living?

      • Neah23 says:

        Funny thing is Matt does get photography a lot just that the popular blogs aren’t buys the pictures. Lol i was surprised how many photo there are of Matt his wife and kids.

      • Becks says:

        Really? I’m surprised because I could not pick Matt’s kids out of a lineup. Have only a vague idea of their faces and names.

        Also, that vow renewal that Matt and Luciana did some years ago- the BIG, no expenses -spared exotic locale thing where they flew dozens if not hundreds of friends and family to Hawaii( ?), does anyone think that Matt did that because he was trying to appease Luciana in some way.

        I have no basis for my assumption, just an intuition. Like how when one spouse has done something egregiously wrong, they will try to fix the offence by going overboard in praise of you, or lavish excessive attention on you, etc,

      • Korra says:

        Well thank god. I’m kinda happy he’s being knocked down a bit. Matty D annoys the ever living sh-t out of me. I still don’t really believe those rumors of his extra marital affairs. But he still annoys the crap outta me.

      • Neah23 says:

        @ Becks

        Go to Google and type Matt Damon kids in the Image section and you will be surprised about how many photos their are of them, I know I was.

      • laura in LA says:

        Marriage vow renewal, at least as far as celebs go, always seems a bad sign.

    • lolo says:

      Lainey has strongly implied for years now that Matt Damon has a stable family life, but has had male lovers on the side. And that he’s very discreet and not messy like Ben. She did a blind item on it and has hinted ever since then. I kinda buy it. She’s not right all the time, but found her particular claims and details pretty compelling.

      • Mess says:

        Ha ha. For all we know, he’s the infamous (and in my opinion not real) Toothy Tile!!!!

      • laura in LA says:

        Mmm, I haven’t read that blind…

        But I think Matt actually allowed his wife’s ex (his step-daughter’s father) to live in the guesthouse of their mansion in Miami because the guy had fallen on hard economic times. The ex has even come out publicly and said that Matt’s a great guy…

        Now I don’t know whether Matt is all that, or if he cheats on his wife, too. I think the gay rumors started, though, because it was assumed that it was his “lover” living on their property (a la Hugh Jackman?)

  51. Paloma says:

    I would like to know how Jen found out, and where are the pics of nanny and Ben we keep hearing about? Certainly nanny knew Ben would dump her if news came out.

  52. Crumpet says:

    Ben having a relationship with his employee – definite sexual harassment material. I don’t care what her motives where or what she is doing now. I’m pretty sure she thinks she is in love with him and that they will end up together. She likely orchestrated the pap walk with him to show the world that they were together and to force his hand. Who knows what is being said between them now.

    Hanlon’s Razor: ‘Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.’

    She is stupid and thinks they are in love.

    • Kitten says:

      Sure, we could argue over whether she’s malicious or not, but she is definitively NOT a stupid woman.

    • Jayna says:

      She’s selling all kinds of stories about their affair and she set up a pap shot of her going to his house to sell. You think she’s in love with him and thinks they will get back together? She is using him for all its worth to make a boatload of money and at this point it’s extortion. She has photos and an interview she could give. She’s forcing his hand to pay up big time instead of her selling it to People magazine.

      She knew she and Ben were going no where, so she set this all up to her advantage to make a big pay day off of it and get some fame.

      Love? LOL

    • Luca76 says:

      I vote stupid and malicious. If she was smart no one would no about her and she’d have a bigger payday.

  53. JoJo says:

    Lainey’s post today draws comparisons between Gone Girl’s Andie (mistress) and Christine O., as well as Amy (wife) and Jen Garner, and I know others have had similar thoughts. It is actually so similar that it’s slightly freaky at this point and kind of makes you wonder if they’re all playing some far-flung game with the media (although I don’t really think they are.) My question though is … how is this all going to end up? Are Ben and Jen going to be Nick and Amy in the long run?

    • Ms. Turtle says:

      Jojo, I just read Lainey’s post and to me, she’s hinting Jennifer hired a hot nanny on purpose, ie, giving Ben enough rope to hang himself. IDK if I believe that bc Jen is in the process being humiliated but maybe?

      • Jayna says:

        No way. It’s even silly to think such a thing.

      • bcgirl says:

        plus she’s far from hot.

      • laura in LA says:

        Yep, Lainey’s saying what quite a few of us have been since the start of “Nannygate” (and I swear that’s the last time I’ll ever use that phrase…)

        This had to be a setup somehow, so obviously straight from Gone Girl, but what proof did Jen really get here – if there was no sex?

      • Undoubtedly says:

        It’s totally plausible. JG is nothing if not calculating. That’s why she’s insufferable to live with. (Course she does it with a big, sweet smile.) This ensures her getting full custody, which is pretty much the most important thing on the table.

    • maria says:

      what about what she said on The Social? Thoughts?

    • Leah says:

      That’s what I took from Lainey’s post, too. That Jennifer hired a hot nanny on purpose. Pulling an “Amy”.

    • laura in LA says:

      It was reported on E!, I think, that the nanny up until she got fired was actually engaged to be married to someone else, if I’m not mistaken…

      So I wonder about all these “friends” and “multiple sources”, who are they, if not played by the nanny herself, and what are they really hoping to get from this charade?

    • Merritt says:

      Honestly I think it is a just convenient comparison because Ben was in the movie. While you could compare Ben and basically every cheater to Nick. I don’t think Jen is anything like Amy. Jen might be cunning about projecting and maintaining a certain image, but she is not a psychopath like Amy.

    • pwal says:

      It’s crazy that I’ve been thinking about this, given that I wasn’t invested in the Garner/Afflecks AT ALL, but maybe this whole hiring a relatively attractive nanny was a parting gift for the true sidepiece waiting in the wings. If the nanny is expressing the same sentiments that the real sidepiece have and if Ben made grandiose promises to the real sidepiece (mind you, keeping it zipped until the coast’s clear may have been ‘grandiose’ for Affleck), it would be a colossal mindfcuk for the real sidepiece. And if it turns out that the piece was a co-star for an upcoming movie, the press junkets will be very interesting- a prolonged theater of Affleck’s clusterfcuk.

      Mind you, I can’t see Garner putting her kids in the crosshairs, since they likely became attached to the nanny. However, if she did do it deliberately, it is pretty diabolical and kinda enjoyable to watch.

  54. ThatMitsyGirl says:

    She’s enjoying this a little too much. Good luck getting another job in your field. Isn’t discretion supposed to be a big part of working for a celeb? My fame whore radar is going off. I’m getting the vibe that its all bullshit but she’s riding the wave.

    • Jayna says:

      She doesn’t need no peon job as a nanny. Don’t you under!stand? She’s going to be a star!

      Pretty soon we’ll see her walking around with a big boob job angling for a Playboy spread, Ben Affleck’s Nanny Mistress Bares All.

      It will never end. LOL

    • Becks says:

      She’s playing the short game.

    • Christin says:

      Count me in on predicting some type of ‘naughty nanny’ photo spread before this is over. This chick looks absolutely pleased with her new notoriety.

      Brings to mind a saying from Dear Abby — ‘It’s hard to shame the shameless.’ It is my opinion this gal is shameless.

    • meh says:

      She obviously doesn’t give a crap about being a good nanny. I doubt she cares about continuing to work in the field. I work as a nanny and I adore the children I care for. I would never do anything to make their lives more difficult or cause them pain, especially make their parent’s already difficult relationship more messy and sordid. Ben is a dog, but this girl is also trash.

  55. Shelley says:

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with controlling one’s image in the media. Most of us control our images in the same way, just for a smaller audience.
    I don’t think Jen’s simple look is an act. She has always been like this even when she was the “it ” girl during the Alias days. She actually looks better than most with no make up and milks that.

  56. The Original G says:

    Uh, we think she’s done in Hollywood because of INFIDELITY? Hahahahahahaha.

    All I can think with the nanny story is what perfect Mr. and Mrs. Matt Damon must think!! LOL, Matt & Ben are tight but Matt is the more wholesome of the duo and I’d LOVE to know what he thinks of all this!

    • Happy21 says:

      Just noticed this was also posted above! Guess it’s a common thought amongst us celebitches 😉

    • Oh yeah says:

      Find the post from HGBoston or something like that. Matt’s been a cheater too–and actually noted for not being very nice to his “girls.” If this is true, I doubt he can sit in judgment of Affleck. Damon, on the other hand, doesn’t have gambling and other problems.

  60. littlestar says:

    I don’t understand how this Ouzounian chick is not ashamed of herself. If I was caught in a scandal like this, I would be so embarrassed and ashamed. I would be hiding in a cave in the middle of no where so no one would be able to find me!!! You wouldn’t catch me doing pap strolls for the press.

    The nanny has completely screwed herself over. She wants fame, but what she got was infamy. Future employers will now Google her and this will be the first thing that shows up. No one will want to hire her. And how many former paramours of celebrities who were exposed like this before have successful entertainment careers now?…. NONE!!!!! She’s an idiot.

  61. Tippipippi says:

    This girl wanted so bad to be the next Leann Rimes, she thought she was really smart calling the paps to ‘catch’ her and Ben hoping that would force him to go public with her. Then she’d be a ‘celebrity’ with daily pap walks with movie star and ‘bonus kids’. That was her intention. Instead he realised she called them and cut her out. Shattering her delusions of fame and fortune.

    This is her revenge. She’s selling him out openly now, she is going to use him and his family to get the attention and money she believes she deserves. Shameless.

    I wonder if she had been sneaking stories to the tabloids and calling the paps on the family while working for them? If she did it with Ben then it must cross their minds. She’s proved that is her nature. What an untrustworthy, sleazy person. Cheating is one thing but selling out people who trusted you and causing hurt to the family of children you were meant to care for is so despicable, the lowest of the low.

    • laura in LA says:

      That’s a good point about selling stories while working for them…even an NDA can’t stop someone from doing so anonymously.

    Those poor kids! I hope they don’t catch wind of this.

    • laura in LA says:

      I know, with all the pap attention paid to them before all this in LA, how will they ever go back to school here in the fall?

      I joked about it on the thread announcing the divorce, but now seriously, what about the kids?

  63. Dirty Martini says:

    Once upon a time–when I was young, naïve, and romantic (like about two months ago)–I was pulling for Ben & Jen. I didn’t want the rumors of divorce to be true. Oh I figured he was a bad boy, but yeah…..she truly loved him, they made 3 beautiful babies, he is a hunk and I respected him professionally, blah blah blah.

    I wanted it to be a rough patch that they overcame.

    OK I was stupid. So he is a total douche. And as far as I’m concerned, he did ME wrong too for giving him the benefit of the doubt. 😉

    He looks like the utmost of a sleazy tool right now. The nanny? AND denying it while the photographic evidence is about to be dropped in 5….4…..3….2…. Can you say laughingstock for his faux gravitas, political aspirations? No one will ever take him seriously again. You can’t look at him ever without smirking and gong “the nanny? really? and thinking you could deny and get away with it?”

    Right now I saw “GO GIRL” to Jen. I couldn’t care less if she is manipulating the media and her image. It’s Hollywood people. Fake tinsel and smoke n’ mirrors. Work it Girl!

    Jen for The Win.

  64. Tara says:

    Look at her loving the attention for messing with a married man. Talk about pure trash. Affleck is trash too. I never bought the image he was trying to sell.

    • rose says:

      Sad to say — by the very fact this story has made its way into all the media outlets, once word gets around to the Affleck kids (let’s say in the schoolyard) — their father messing with the babysitter?

      Let’s face it, they are too young to process that kind of betrayal to their mom. And why should they have to go thru that kind of scandal? Just to look at their innocent eyes — you have to wonder — if this really did go down, what could he have been thinking?

      He was thinking only of Ben. Ben Affleck is a shallow, vain, self-centered, immature creep.
      He is not only a public relations problem for any studio, he shames himself, his mother (who it’s said he’s very close to) his children, Jennifer, and his own good name.

      There’s little anyone can do to get this story gone and push it out of the public’s mind. It’s damaging in every way.

      As for the ex-nanny — not a very smart one, that’s for sure.
      Wonder if she’ll ever find another job anywhere?

  65. serena says:

    She may be controlling but she sure is smart. The same doesn’t apply to Ben and the nanny.

    You guys are delusional Ben Affleck shall shall be fine he will get with an A list celebrbrity when his divorce is done a.d Jennifer Garner shall go back to dating B List stara she is so thirsty I cannot undrstand how Ben Affleck stayed with her for so long

    • tracking says:

      Thanks to his J-lo antics, Ben was on his way to D-list when he got with Jen G. She shined him up like a pretty new penny and gave him a solid foundation and the veneer of respectability while he re-built his career. We’ll see how well he does without her holding him up. Not doing too well right now, is he. So long as she knows her worth, she’ll be fine.

      And I bet JG will be gladly to hand Ben Affleck to JLO [or to any side piece] in the silver platter.

  67. Sandy says:

    Boy, the attention this story is getting! Ben is a straight-up idiot, because the press scrutiny of Ben, Jen, the nanny, presumably future skanks he hooked up with, and unfortunately the children, is going to be a tsunami. You know how he always glares at the press? His head is going to explode at what is going to happen next! Of course, he and Jen used the press to their advantage to snag his Oscar, but now he’s completely lost control of the story! People and Us have turned on him, and if you believe all the reports about the multiple women, this is going to get very, very ugly!

  68. Fwiw says:

    I wonder how Jen found out Ben and the nanny slept together in the Bahamas because I pray one of the kids didn’t catch them in the same bed. He is the lowest scumbag for not thinking of his children first.

    I bet Matt Damon’s wife didn’t like the idea of Matt and Ben hanging out frequently knowing what a dirty dog Ben is. I bet she’s heard some crazy Ben stories.

    • MiddleWay says:

      I think Celebitchy has written about a Matt nannygate a couple of years ago… It never made it to big headlines, though, presumably because the Damon nanny was less of a publicity wh@re.

      • Janet says:

        Completely false. No similar stories about Damon exist.

      • MiddleWay says:

        Janet, it definitely was being gossiped about at one point. I’m not saying it’s true, but I did hear it being talked about on a gossip site. The story was about the family traveling to Mexico and a nanny being brought back to the US with Matt and his family… and the usual scurrilous stuff.

  69. anne_000 says:

    I think he slept with the nanny partly to piss off Jennifer. He could throw that in her face later on if he wanted to.

    I guess Ben is just reckless, not just in this affair but in other aspects of his life.

    This nanny is probably getting various offers, but none that are going to make her a star, because she doesn’t seem like star material by lookin at photos of her.

  70. someone says:

    I suspect the reason Ben went to Atlanta with the kids is because it was his fault the Nanny got fired inconveniently. Jen probably couldn’t find a last minute replacement before she left to shoot so Ben had to go along and assist. Ben wasn’t in Atlanta because he wanted more time with the kids, or to be the Dad he never had (like he claimed), but to make up for the fact that they had no Nanny due to his inability to not have sex with her.

      Um, I would agree with you on this, except that I believe another one of their nannies was photographed in Atlanta. Too bad she didn’t also go to the Bahamas…

      • someone says:

        Do they have more than one nanny normally? Or maybe Jen thought Ben needed to help until the new nanny got up to speed?

    • The Original Mia says:

      Ah…that’s pretty perceptive. Bet you’re right.

  71. JPK says:

    Let’s not forget that Ms. Garner got pregnant to nail Ben down. Not a great beginning. She was a fool because this guy wasn’t ready. He won’t be ready until he’s fifty and even then only if he has dealt with his other “issues.”

    • lucas says:

      Why blame Garner for this stupidity committed by Ben? What he has done with the nanny hurt HIS. KIDS. who are innocents. Who are looking at their father as their protector? He is Batman isn’t he (sarcasm )? To put it on Garner is ridiculous. It has been 10 years and Ben profited from that family man image. He won his second Oscar, right?

    • captain says:

      Wenn she got pregnant, Ben has been sexually active for quite a while without having impregnated even one lousy chick. Why is it so hard to imagine, he wanted this as much as she did?

      • lucas says:

        My point was, no matter what Ben’s image got a makeover. He had two more after that.

        Someone, not too long ago, described Ben as trash. I didn’t see it then but now, I believe it.
        Why do that to your kids?

      • Tate says:

        @lucas I didn’t see it before but I sure do now. He is gross.

      • captain says:

        @lucas – sorry, I wasn’t clear enough. My answer was to @JPK “Let’s not forget that Ms. Garner got pregnant to nail Ben down.” I really detest this point of view and am certain that they both wanted a family and were in love.

    • Merritt says:

      He was in his 30s when Jen became pregnant the first time. And to be tricked after years with Goop and J.Lo, yeah no. His career was in the toilet when he and Jen got together. If anything, he probably wanted to trap her at the time. He needed a wholesome person to help rehab his image. And she did that for years.

    • anne_000 says:

      How did she trick Ben to impregnate her? Put pinholes in his condom?

      If he didn’t want to impregnate her or anybody else, then he had the choice to use condoms every single time and/or get a vasectomy?

      When a woman gets pregnant, there’s two people involved in getting that result, not just one.

  72. Mess says:

    That belt on the bunny boiler is brand new! I don’t know why I find this to be so hilarious. What an amateur!!!

    • Dirty Martini says:

      Haha, on another site (maybe People?) had additional pics of her pap walk not shown here….and I noticed that her studded flats are missing a stud or two on the side. I laughed uproariously at that…..and thought “amateur” as well. I may be southern, but I can’t even muster a “bless her heart” for this piece of work.

  73. Christin says:

    Within the past few weeks, I watched Gone Girl for the first time. I actually watched parts of it again, because it was so unbelievably bizarre.

    Like others have done, I can draw a bunch of similarities between the movie and this saga. Whenever cheating allegations were mentioned, I could hear Nick (his GG character) saying in a TV interview that he was not a good guy, etc.

    Now, supposedly this nanny is connected to actor NPH, who was in Gone Girl!

    Truth is stranger than fiction, I guess.

  74. Corrie says:

    I never believed Baffleck was smart. But i’d forgotten since he married Jen, how unbelievably dumb he is. Look, we can twist this on Jen for what its worth but as a working mom exec, I’d be damn if my husband who’s never around f*ck up my only help in the house to keep both of us working without worrying for our children. He can screw who he wants but I’d draw blood when he screws up things that directly impact my kids. The nanny. Cliche yes, but really low. He can’t control his dick, then get divorced and screw all of LA. Stop acting like holding you to being a decent human being is just too hard work for Ben to achieve. He’s a lazy f*ck who can’t even look outside his home to keep it straight. All i’ll say is a woman scorned.

  75. cynthia says:

    Did anyone catch today’s episode of Lainey’s show The Social? I’m curious about what she had to say about the latest revelation. In the promo I noticed the fifth wheel (Jess?) was on today and I’d rather eat my shoes than listen to her voice :(. Lainey, if you’re reading celebitchy, get rid of her – Cynthia, Melissa and Tracy are awesome

    • captain says:

      I wonder what she’d be saying about hard dr*gs he’s supposedly on. Will she retract her blind or just forget about it? It sounded preposterious at the time, but now, with this nanny story, even more unbelievable.

  76. Amy M. says:

    I’ve been following Jennifer since Alias and she’s always had a lazy personal style, I remember she occasionally got papped back when she was dating Michael Vartan. I do think she controls her image very well but the woman does not care about fashion, never has and never will. Is her lazy fashion sense part of her image? Sure, but that’s also part of who she is. She didn’t change it when she got with Affleck. I highly doubt she stands in front of her closet with her hands on her hip contemplating in a cold and calculating manner “Which terrible shoes should I wear today? Which lazily thrown together outfit can I wear so I can gain sympathy from the Minivan Majority?”

    • Kath says:

      I agree. To see it as some Machiavellian media scam being run over, what, 15 years, is ridiculous. The woman doesn’t like to dress up and plaster her face with make-up every time she leaves the house. I’m the same way.

  77. MiddleWay says:

    I love this: “He was tired of Jen’s negative energy and constant berating…” Right, and I’m sure her berating was about absolutely nothing. A certain kind of person will ALWAYS say “She was so mean and negative” when talking about someone who wouldn’t let them do whatever they wanted all the time.

  78. LouLou says:

    That nanny is giving me Hailey Glassman vibes. Remember her? She dated Jon Gosselin and was the daughter (I think) of the surgeon who did all the work on Kate. That girl tried hard to milk some fame out of that situation, even doing some kind of trashy boxing match maybe? Anyway, that is the vibe and somewhat of the resemblance here. LOL.

  79. frivolity says:

    You know, this is all so ridiculous for those poor kids. If Jen really is the mom she says she is, she should take off and just move to West Virginia or something so that the children do not have to grow up in the sh!tstorm that is Hollywood. Jennifer could still work – or not. She certainly needs no more money. She and the kids are more than set for life.

    • Aren says:

      I was thinking this too.
      Also, why did she need a nanny in the first place? She supposedly left her promising career to have a family. It’s not like she had many kids either.
      I don’t buy it that she’s a victim, a divorce many years ago would’ve saved them a lot of heartache.

  80. laura in LA says:

    Here’s an interesting update for those of wondering about the nanny NDA:

    How’s she going to get around this? She claims that the NDA became invalid as soon as she was fired, but she’d better get a lawyer and hire her own reps to defend this instead of relying on her “sources” to protect her.

    Also interesting? This same news piece reiterates the claim from one source that “they didn’t sleep together or get physical”. So what has she got, a few texts, emails and supposedly a photo of her with her boss?

    It seems to me like she and her “friends”, maybe family, too, are playing this game of blackmail and extortion with moves from the Gone Girl playbook. This chick’s bluffing, and she’s going to lose.

    • laura in LA says:

      But wait, there’s more:

      “At the Bel Air Hotel on Wednesday night, ‘Christine was overheard saying Ben hasn’t been returning any of her phone calls or texts since the relationship had been made public,’ an insider told Radar.”

      Gee, ya think? Guess he’s not so much in love with his stalker as she thought.

      “‘Christine was also saying that her career as a nanny is essentially over because the agency she had been working with has dropped her,’ after Garner and Affleck fired her, the source continued. ‘The agency didn’t want any of the publicity.'”

      Haha, no kidding. She’ll never work as a nanny or anything in this town again.

      This is so ridiculous, it would be funnier – if it weren’t so sad.

    • jwoolman says:

      I routinely sign non-disclosure agreements in my freelance work, and I’ve never seen one that says the NDA is no longer valid when I stop working for them. Otherwise I could do one job, not do another one and skipperdee off to the client’s competitors with trade secrets… Are any actually written that way?

      • laura in LA says:

        That’s a good point, jwoolman.

        I was reading about a woman who worked for the Ovitzes decades ago and wrote a book about it, but she said she could never get away with that today, given all the NDAs. Anyone who works closely with these people, especially in their homes, has to sign one, even if they’re only there for one day.

        The only thing about this is that the nanny has not revealed any details of her bosses’ personal lives. And her “friends” are the only ones talking to the tabs about the supposed “affair”, which also doesn’t reveal anything personal.

        So I wonder if this exempts her?

      • jwoolman says:

        Laura- just talking to friends and family about it usually violates an NDA. So if you’ve signed one and absolutely must share, make sure the other person will keep it confidential. I actually revise the ones I sign to make it clear that I can talk with appropriate counsellors in case of payment disputes as well as cooperate with any legal authorities. So as long as they pay me and aren’t involved in anything illegal, I won’t let anybody even glance at my computer screen while working on their non-public material (I most often translate background material such as patents and journal articles, where the only relevant secret I need to keep is who ordered the translation since that could be useful information to a competitor). NDAs today general include provisions for taking anti-hacking steps, protecting your files as well as destroying hard copies.

  81. Jayna says:

    Little Miss Fame-Ho didn’t do any pap outings today? Color me shocked. I guess she’s too busy hanging out at the Hotel Bel-Air now that she’s a celeb waiting for the big offers to roll in and trolling trying to hook another celeb..

    The new gossip they were intimate in the Bahamas, I don’t know if that’s necessarily sex. That could be when she snapped (like a selfie maybe?) the photo of her on his lap kissing.

    • laura in LA says:

      She’s apparently waiting with bated breath at the Bel-Air for her lover, Ben, to return her calls and texts. Why oh why won’t he call?

      Sorry, nanny bunny boiler. No rendezvous for you all alone there this weekend. (Sigh…)

      • Christin says:

        If he doesn’t call, she’s probably taking selfie photos of the alleged “love nest” room, with her sprawled out across the bed. For sale to the highest bidder, of course!

      • laura in LA says:

        Oh, Christin, I can totally see that!

        Heck, I’d check them out just to see what a room at the Bel-Air looks like.

      • Christin says:

        Thank you for posting those latest links upthread. Everything seems to be an “insider” or a “source”.

        And the part about talking for others to overhear. What is she doing, hanging out in the bar or lobby telling everyone who she is and what’s going on?

        It’s as if she wants to send messages back to Benny-Poo that anything that happened after the firing is fair game. She will not be ignored, Ben!

  82. Jayna says:

    Instead of the nanny, can we just from now on refer to her as the bunny boiler? LOL I love that, whoever brought it up first on here when referring to her.

  83. Blue says:

    Game. Set. Match Jen Garner. While your husband is getting slammed by everyone for his affair with the nanny you are visiting sick kids with cancer in hospital. Well played you and your manager win the queen of PR damage control award. Oh Ben and you thought the shit storm from the bennifer1 days was bad…. You really are your own worst enemy. Keep your head down, keep working this too will blow over one day.

  84. Jayna says:

    With all this going down and coming off like a real douche, Ben’s next photo-op needs to be him carrying not one, but a basketful of adorable puppies and in the other hand carrying a basketful of adorable tiny kittens all from a kill rescue shelter where he saved them all. He needs a big moment the next time he surfaces after being in hiding.

  85. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    I think Kitten has set a Celebitchy record for most posts on a thread. Twenty three by my count.

  86. Veronica says:

    IMO, Garner was the best thing Ben ever had. He’s the one coming out of this a loser. It will be entertaining to see what happens to Affleck in the years to come without her around to mop up the mess.

    • Disagree says:

      No. They were not well-suited for each other at all. She needed a milquetoast she could boss around and “shape.” That’s not him. He needs to deal with his issues. Emotionally they are not on the same page at all. She’ll never understand or relate to his emotional intensity, which he channels into an attraction for the dark side. She’s easy breezy covergirl. Not a match. She’ll find a boring industry guy just like Reese Witherspoon did.

  87. JoJo says:

    Still really just. wondering, are Ben and Jen going to be Nick and Amy Dunne in the long run …

  88. Ana says:

    I saw the pictures of Affleck and nannyhoe. The first one I saw was she was entering Affleck’s place with a code. Afflec must have given it to her. The second one was Affleck smiling (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), looking happy (!!!!!!!!!!) seeing her. He was waiting for her outside, by front door.

    The other picture was het getting out of the Lexus, dressed NOT like a nanny.

    OMG! What have you done Ben? You are not even divorced yet. You are still wearing that disappearing wedding ring because you want the public to perceive that you are still married. If that is the case, isn’t it cheating?

  89. Patty says:

    Ben’s an idiot. I will never understand why some men and women have to end relationships in such a craptacular messy manner. Especially long term relationships. Ben and Jen were married for 10 years and had three kids together. If the relationship wasn’t working, that happens. But how he ended it or forced her to end it by being a douchebag and banging the nanny is disgusting.

    On a side note, people like what they like. Beautiful awesome women get dumped everyday and their exes end up with lesser models. Happens all of the time. It is classic Hubbell, someone just cannot handle a woman who will ask and expect the best of them.

    • tracking says:

      love, love your classic Hubbell reference. I also agree (and consensus seems to be) the sad fact is that he was never as madly in love with her as she was with him. I don’t know how hard he tried, or even if he has it in him to love someone in a true, unselfish way, but that piece of it is hard. His whining about her “negativity” disgusts me though and makes me think he is fundamentally a narcissistic POS.

      • jwoolman says:

        We don’t really know that he was whining about her negativity. Some unnamed source allegedly said that, according to a tabloid. I’ve been interviewed and had words put in my mouth by a reporter that were never there, and I was certainly a “named source”. Unless you actually see and hear someone say something, it’s all debatable. Even with good intentions, people mishear and misinterpret what friends, family, and complete strangers say. We can always try to figure out the likelihood of it being true from other things we know for sure, but have to remember “sources” are never to be trusted until properly confirmed.

      • laura in LA says:

        Jwoolman, especially with all these “sources” coming out like flying monkeys! Who knows who they are and what their motivations?

    • Jayna says:

      Exactly. I get the last few months of their marriage as they were ending it was probably fraught with anger, sadness, passive-aggressiveness. It’s not a pretty time. But to do this to Jennifer right in her own home with someone she hired and trusts, and of all things, to bring the nanny to the very place they are telling the kids. The disrespect is taken to a whole other level that it is mindblowing. This nanny is there, knowing what is going down, telling the children, and unbeknownst to Jen she is also carrying on with her husband.

      People do fall out of love or a marriage runs its course, but all he had to do was act like a decent human being the last couple of months and not bang the nanny and turn this into a mess that Jen isn’t going to clean up for him.

      I always liked them as a couple, because I disagree with others. I never felt she put on like they had the perfect marriage. She was one of the few that made fun of herself as a mother and said marriage was difficult with kids and careers but clearly adored Ben. Ben certainly was honest too. They joked a lot about it. And I don’t find Jen boring. I think she has an amazing personality, adorable. The men always love her on the talk shows she’s on.

      She needs to get rid of her bangs. I love her hair here with no bangs, like on this video. She looks amazing here on Letterman six months after having Samuel. She and Letterman always have a great chemistry. And she was making fun of Ben back home with the two girls while she had the baby with her. Knowing what happened now, it’s sad to see this family broken apart, but it’s telling on here with her talking about Ben having a hard time hitting 40. while she didn’t. I think it’s because he was starting to have a major midlife crisis two years ago

      • Ana says:

        This makes me sad for JG, Jayna. I wasn’t a real fan until a year ago. I would look online for best dressed after awards shows and I would see her on the list and from there on I started liking her. Imagine that, best dressed and we make fun of her everyday get up. You could tell she is smart, laid back and a good person. I don’t mind her being described as ambitious because we all have to be to succeed, to reach that high level of success. As for being manipulative, I am glad that she knows how to play that game, especially if you are living with that disgusting kind of man like Affleck. She fought and she is still fighting! As for her pap walks with her kids, I feel that she is sending some kind of message. Maybe reminding Affleck that he has kids at home who needs him once in a while. Or it could be a message to all those side pieces of his, not to mess with the family, just like what this nanny did.

        No one is perfect and for sure she is not! But she will always be my sweet, strong and kick a$$ Sydney Bristow. Wishing her well and her kids.

      • tracking says:

        I just don’t think she did anything to deserve this, nor do I think she set him up. She can be a little precious for my taste, but I like her well enough and hope she rides this out and finds a guy who adores her and the kids.

      • Oh yeah says:

        He’s an addict. Untreated addicts are always compulsive and self-destructive. And I don’t get the sense that he ever participated in recovery. He may have stopped boozing or whatever at some point, but his hubris was such that he didn’t have to do the work. This is the hardest, hardest thing to be married to. You’re not married to the person; you are married to the disease. It’s very good that she is freeing herself and her children.

      • Jets says:

        I think she is trying to grow out her bangs now, I like her lighter hair color too.

      • laura in LA says:

        I like her bangs.

    • Fwiw says:

      Well, Ben did shitty things to Jlo and forced and basically encouraged/dared her to break up with him … But for him to try the same tactic on the mother of his 3 children is beyond unforgivable. Ben is a major POS and acts like an animal. I never found him hot and always got the feeling he was a major jerk but somehow Jen Garner made him look like maybe he was alright. He has verified my original feelings about him. The truth always comes to light. Jen deserves lots of happiness after the hell he has put her through,

      Every time he was out with his kids and wife he had his grumpy, unhappy face but wow the US magazine pictures have him smiling ear to ear when around the nanny at the rented Brook Shields house. This guy is pure scum.

      • tracking says:

        yeah, he’s gross. “Guys, you don’t understand, my wife is so MEAN to me!” Grow up, man child!

  90. SillySimone says:

    Here is what I don’t understand. Why is everyone making this out to be some sort of disaster? It is horrible. He is a jerk and so is the trampnanny. But how would a divorce or even cheating ruin someone’s career in Hollywood? Woody Allen married his girlfriend’s daughter, who was a traumatized and abused orphan to whom he became a father figure. There are credible allegations that he molested his daughter. Roman Polanski full on raped a child, admitted to it, and then fled the country to avoid prosecution. They are both still working and earning life time achievement awards. A guy cheating on his wife, in Hollywood? I’m shocked! Shocked I tell you. The Lainey Gossip stuff is the most crazy part of all of this. A conspiracy theory that franchises will go down, lives will be destroyed, people will implode, and maybe his wife set him up. It is idiotic. Donald Trump took his mistress on vacation to the same place he was vacationing with his family. It was a huge and messy divorce, rife with rape allegations. He is running for president. Seriously? It is pretty simple (and ugly) really. He is a serial cheater and a jerk who has addiction problems. She finally had enough. He may have screwed the nanny (so did David Beckham, Jude Law, and of course Arnold). Other than this just proving what everyone already knew all along – that he is a huge douche – why are these speculations and conspiracy theories necessary? I just don’t get it.

  91. ann says:

    One good thing for Jennifer is all this crazy drama is going to help her move on. She won’t have to feel guilty for not staying together for the kids because no sane person would hang around for this strange life.

  92. ellalter says:

    You don’t hire a nanny like that with a husband like that and not know what’s going to happen. Nitro, meet Glycerin. Before, during or after, she knew he would be his usual dog self and take the exploding bait. Garner comes out smiling with pediatric cancer patients, and Ben has fish guts on his face. If I was Garner, I would totally take credit for the set-up, especially if I had been stupid enough to hire a moderately attractive but desperate for the lime light nanny. Privately of course, to only my closest friends.

    • ann says:

      Good point. Have you seen the pics of Violets nanny when she was about three? Night and day difference.

    • jwoolman says:

      A lot of healthy active people in their twenties ( likely to be able to keep up with young children) are attractive. You can’t keep them from working as nannies or as anything else just because you assume they’ll go after your husband or vice versa. She’s an anomaly, that’s why it’s news.

      Besides, you can’t judge books or nannies by their cover. On the flip side, you can’t assume that someone not model material won’t be sexually attractive. Look around you at all the varied types of women who attract and keep a mate quite easily. Attractiveness really does come from within.

  93. justine says:

    Gossip cop says the us weekly report isn’t true

  94. Fwiw says:

    LOL Gossip Cop gets their info from Ben’s PR team. You can’t trust Gossip Cop!

      All they do is report publicist statements, right? I don’t think they can be relied on for accuracy either.

    • jen2 says:

      They were one of the first to report there was no trouble in the marriage and they were not getting divorced. Ooops!!

        Not really true at one point when the Break up rumors were everywhere Gossip Cop said that their sources were silent.

    Where does an unemployed nanny get the money to dine in swanky restaurants, stay at the Bel Air hotel and hire a publicist? #hushmoney

    • Mommy's little monster says:

      Ha ha. Like just about everyone else her age, she lives at home with Mummy and Daddy. Thus her pay is all hers to play with. Wonder how Moms and Pops feel just about now?

      • Jayna says:

        Who are all these people living with mommy and daddy just blowing money when you are 28, almost 29 years old? Many have already started a family or bought their first home or condo, working on their career. I never knew anybody living with mommy and daddy at 28 just blowing money on purses and shoes, no goals.

    • laura in LA says:

      Or else she’s being paid and dressed by Jen’s PR/stylist. The setup idea was mine before Lainey even printed it. And I’m sticking by it.

      • Ming says:

        I cannot blame JG if she is channeling her inner Sydney Bristow. I agree with the above comment, this is a set-up that is well executed.

  96. JoJo says:

    I don’t know. Again, I’m kind of seein Gone Girl written all over this. I don’t believe Jen set up the nanny thing, but I am starting to have doubts about whether they’re actually planning to get divorced. Yes, even with nanny-gate happening. In some totally dysfunctional way – which I have always kind of believed their marriage was from the start anyway – this whole things makes Ben more dependent on Jen again, which Inthink is what she likes, and I truly would not be surprised if they don’t go through with it. Why on earth is she still wearing her ring at this point? I still have a strange feeling that the divorce was her way of trying to make him wake up and show him she’s serious ,,, but in reality, she’s still willing, as always, to stay and continue trying.

    • laura in LA says:

      Jen has used US Weekly a lot, so they’re loyal to her…

      And I doubt they’d be so sure of their story based only on these random, conflicting accounts from the “friends” of this previously unknown nanny, unless Jen herself had given them the go-ahead to run it. I also think these “multiple sources” are possibly from her own PR camp.

      Jen may be as nice as everyone thinks. She’s certainly a good mother who has put up with more than most any woman would from Ben over the years, but I think she may feel, as many people do, that she’s the one who saved his career. And now she’s going to get the kids, the house, the money, the reputation and the sympathy she feels is rightfully hers.

      Jen’s also smart and obviously strong. She knew he was cheating on her, but she can’t out any major actresses because that could be career-ending for herself. It’s all about the studio and star interests in Hollywood. Just because someone had a popular hit TV show once, along with a few good movie roles, and shows up in the tabloids a lot doesn’t make them bankable now (eg. Jennifer Aniston).

      With this being such a male-dominated industry, how many producers, directors and co-stars would choose to work with Jen if she exposed her A-list husband’s infidelities? Ben’s addiction problems are already pretty well known, even if we don’t know how bad they may be. An affair when they’ve already been separated awhile seems like not such a big deal in the long run, even if it seems more so now.

      So maybe Jen just needed some sort of “proof”. And this unknown nanny is the perfect foil because no one really cares about her, and how she’s conducted herself makes her look almost worse than Ben. After all, he’s got plenty of work projects in the pipeline and major money invested in his success and earnings coming his way.

      Meanwhile, this nanny’s nearing 30, not a young babysitter or college student, but a woman who’s bounced around different careers and now wants her own so-called “life”. Hey, I can understand that, but it’s shameless what some people will do for 15 mins of fame and money…

      Her best hope after this is to marry a rich man (and it definitely won’t be Ben!)

      • Tippipippi says:

        Wouldn’t this be humiliating for Jen? I can’t imagine her being so manipulative she’d set
        this up herself. I don’t think anyone would want people knowing their husband was cheating, let alone with the nanny.

        I absolutely believe that Ben was set up by the nanny because she thought they were in love and photos of them together would force him to go public with their ‘relationship’ making her a ‘celebrity’, then he cut her out when he realised she called the paps and this is her pschyo revenge.

        She may hope publicity will attract a rich man but I know a lot of rich men, she hasn’t much hope of digging her claws in one now. They have plenty of options. She’s a blatant gold digging, famewhore with no discretion and the nastiness to betray people who trust her to the tabloids, she won’t be able to find someone to pay for a one nighter let alone put a ring on it.

      • laura in LA says:

        How much more humiliating could it be than what she’s probably already endured?

        Plus it puts the majority of women everywhere squarely on her side. She doesn’t want him, not after all this, and she would lose the sympathy of her female fans if she did take him back.

        Now this gives her the upperhand in this divorce. Also, as JoJo said above, it makes him more dependent on her, at least for a little while longer, hiding out down there in Atlanta with her and the kids.

        The nanny will maybe marry another Armenian from the LA community, a wealthy businessman who cares only that she’s attractive and now (in)famous.

      • Neah23 says:

        Ben was set up by no one he just got sloppy like when thing ended with JLO and he got caught with prostitute. That all him he seems to get to a point were he just doesn’t care hence why he was doing the nanny.

        Lol do you know how many rich men date/marry known gold diggers, famewhore they don’t care as long as not as she good arm candy. Who did she betray by going the media? Ben the man who betrayed his wife by having a affair and was sleeping with the women that was living with them and taking care of their kids please.

        I don’t see this as pschyo revenge that seems over dramatic. It was revenge plane if simple just like Bobby Flay Ex with the cheater banner.

      • laura in LA says:

        And if Ben were falsely accused of an affair with the nanny, he may have figured “might-as-well” after she was fired.

      • Neah23 says:

        If Ben was falsely accused of having an affair both he and Jen would have lawyered up and sued her and yet they haven’t.

      • laura in LA says:

        Well, I don’t know if Jen would, but Ben’s lawyers have already threatened legal action…

        The question is, will they actually go through with it? Or are they trying any tactics at all now just to shut up the nanny.

        As far as anyone can tell, she doesn’t seem too intimidated by all this.

    The whole point of gossip cop is to bust tabloid rumors! That’s why the site exists in the first place, but why believe that when you can believe us weekly? They never said they weren’t getting divorced, you need to get your facts straight

  98. InGA says:

    Never met Ben but did briefly meet Jennifer when my child was an extra on a night shoot and it was late and my daughter was so excited to be in the same room with a movie star and Jennifer during a break smiled and asked her how was she so cheerful so late at night – stars don’t have to talk to extras on set but by doing this, she thrilled my daughter who was 8 – I think she is a movie star that is kind to kids and that is because she is a good mother in real life.

  99. Stanhope says:

    Stylist? LOL with the QVC “burp-in” bag and that awful belt from the NeNe Leakes collection? She’s a stupid chick, the pics she should have gotten would be Affleck with Damon in flagrante delicto. Then she could have gotten a big pay day. As it is she leaves a little stretched out and a reputation as a cheap harlot.

  100. jinglebellsmell says:

    She is LOVING getting papped!

  101. JoJo says:

    @Laura in LA – You definitely have an interesting theory/analysis. So, you really believe they’re going to go through with the divorce then?

    • laura in LA says:

      Ohhh, yeah, there’s no turning back now…

      And as I wrote above, Jen would lose the sympathies of women everywhere if she did.

    • laura in LA says:

      The other thing is…

      This divorce will probably not be settled, papers not signed, for another 12-18 months, and though their fortune is currently estimated at $150 mil, how much more do you suppose Jen stands to gain, if anything, from Batman franchise earnings?

      So it would probably not be in her (or Ben’s or WB’s, etc.) best interest to disclose his supposed drug use as that could affect his career, but as long he keeps his sh*t together, still shows up for work and acts his charming self, then no one’s the wiser.

      The “affair” is nothing compared to expectations for Batman whose fans don’t care about any of this.

  102. Neah23 says:

    @ laura in LA

    What do you think?

    Someone on the Daily mail pointed out that Jen outfit she wearing in the new pictures of her with her daughter is very similar to the outfit the nanny is wearing in the pictures above.

    • laura in LA says:

      Wow, thanks for the link.

      That *could* be a coincidence, but the other photos of Jen and Christine both wearing black tops, flowy-print short skirts and expensive espadrilles on the same day are just too much…

      It’s all very odd, but we’ll see!

  103. jwoolman says:

    One other thought about non-disclosure agreements or confidentiality agreements based on my own experience – they may prohibit talking about the subjects of the agreement even concerning post-termination activity for a certain period after termination of the business relationship, don’t know about NDAs for nannies of celebrities. But I’ve seen some strange things in NDAs and related agreements. I had to turn down one job because the lawyers not only wanted me to not even work on translations of material related to the thing that was involved in the court case during proceedings but also for several years after the case was concluded. I told them this was impossible because the thing in question was a common piece of lab equipment and so at least one sentence referring to a related thing was likely to pop up in much of my work. The reason they wanted me was because I knew about such “things” but that was because I did work on related “things” routinely. I couldn’t convince them to accept a more reasonable revision of their agreement that wouldn’t cripple my business for an unknown number of years. I would have had to have a retainer big enough to set me up for life, since I would lose too many customers in the process. Had to suggest they get a non-technical translator who didn’t know anything about the technology and so whose business wouldn’t be affected, although good luck with the accuracy angle.

    So although you would think the nanny would be free to discuss anything that happened after she was fired, it’s possible not – especially if the activity started before termination. Depends entirely on how the NDA is written. So she might be safe legally, or not.

    But definitely you’re not off the hook if you blab to other people about things covered by the NDA and then they blab to media. If you choose to tell confidential stories to others who don’t have their own separate NDAs, you have already violated the agreement and if they blab to media you will very likely be caught and subject to whatever legal sanctions are in your NDA. So blab work-related secrets to your bff at your own risk. Again, whether what she allegedly did with Ben is covered at all by an NDA depends on how it’s written.

  104. JoJo says:

    @Laura in LA – But look at this article, although I know nothing about the site and its credibility:

    This article implies that Ben is fighting to save the marriage. I don’t know. I still have a lingering feeling that these two are going to end up together again (Ben and Jen). I know it sounds crazy after everything, but they do seem like the quintessential “Nick and Amy Dunne.” Totally dysfunctional, miserable couple that stays together. I think he wanted to split but may now be reconsidering given the firestorm around him, and Jen now finally has him right where she wants him – under her control. He’ll be forced to be a good boy after this, at least for a while. The fact that they’re still wearing they’re rings (especially her) seems telling to me. Of course, if they do stay together, I have no doubt they’re going to end up right back at this same place within 5 years … I don’t know. The whole thing is truly bizarre. Not the affair/s, but the way that it’s all being played out and handled by Ben and Jen.

    • laura in LA says:

      He may be sticking close to Jen now, but I think he’s wanted a divorce for at least the last two years.

  105. ann says:

    Maybe they should just have an open marraige and have scheduled family nights and date nights with other people. That way the kids dont have to live in two households and neither would feel betrayed. Maybe join a swingers club.

    • laura in LA says:

      That’s the way Gwynnie’s marriage supposedly worked – or didn’t – until they decided it was just better for them to consciously-uncouple.

      As much as GOOP annoys me, I give her and Chris credit for divorcing as well as any couple possibly could.

  106. Jets says:

    Ben should fire his PR firm because right now they are losing this battle royally and they have lost control of this scandal, they are looking like amateurs, there will no lawsuit, trust me. The “talking points” his camp are feeding to “People” in Ben’s favor are so pathetic and obvious, right now the only crap they can throw at Jen repeatedly is that she was “controlling, negative and was mean to Ben – but that doesn’t mean he cheated” – I mean really? that’s all you got? Are they for real? That is a direct quote from Sunshine-Sachs, amateurs I tell you. Before this nanny scandal broke there was a story on Page Six which obviously came from his camp about Ben renting Brooke Shields home and that when Jen is done filming in ATL the family would live there temporarily, which was fine but then they had to throw in “this is not going to be Ben’s bachelor pad, but a temporary home for the family” what was the point of that? But what happens next, he gives the nanny the security code to the rental and they rendezvous there all conveniently caught by the paps, um sounds like a bachelor pad to me guys. Also interesting that the nanny chose to wear the same clothes she was wearing on July 17 the night the paps caught her and Ben outside his pad at her “coming out” pap walk when the story broke, so there was no question that it was indeed HER in those photos, just in case you had any doubt. Clever girl. Ben’s PR team are so stupid I’m surprised they haven’t suggested that that is not Ben in those photos but actually Paul Rudd…. What is also missing from the carefully placed press releases from his camp are any mention of Casey Affleck supporting his brother during this time, they mentioned his mom and Matt being there for Ben but no mention of Casey, maybe that was Casey’s request to leave him name out of this mess because he is so private, but something tells me that he’s not supporting Ben. Casey and Jen have a lot in common, they are and will always be in Ben’s more successful shadow, known more as “Ben Affleck’s wife or ex-wife” and “Ben Affleck’s brother” they share that frustration of playing second fiddle. At the same time how can you support someone that is the architect of their own sh!t ? Ben and Casey have movies coming out the same weekend next year, Ben’s The Accountant” and Casey has “The Finest Hours” , with everything that is happening to Ben right now, how much you want to bet WB pushes the release date of The Accountant for later in the year? We’ll see, in the mean time let’s all sit back and relax and be happy that we are not Ben Affleck because it sucks it sucks to be him right now.

    • Neah23 says:

      The July 17 Photos are not paparazzi photos.

      The paparazzi whould have sold the pictures that day and pocketed the money for themselves. They would not have split the money with the nanny or given her the photos. We’re talking about big money here, who ever sold the pictures of Bobbi Kristina in the hospital got $100k for them. Those photos were ether taken by a friend of the nanny or a private investigator maybe hired by Jen because she didn’t trust one or both of them.

      • Jets says:

        I just hope Ben at least used protection… what if the next bombshell is she’s pregnant?? Apparently the nanny was actually engaged and broke it off right after the Bahamas trip. This scandal is the gift that keeps on giving.

      • laura in LA says:

        That’s a scary thought, Jets…

        Oh dear God. Please make this nightmare nanny go away.

      • laura in LA says:

        Ugh, I haven’t seen the US photos yet, but the dates are confusing me?

        As for Casey, I wonder if given the harassment lawsuit he settled a few years ago, he just wants to keep his name out of this.

        Besides, if Matt and Casey appear to be taking Ben’s side against Jen, knowing how she’s appealed to them for help with Ben in the past, it would not look good for either one of them.

        They may figure that Ben has made his own mess, let him deal with it.

    • JoJo says:

      @ Jets – I think Ben and Casey are actually really close. And Casey has had his share of scandal, as in recent years when two women (asst. producer types, I think?) brought lawsuits against him. So, I’d bet he’ll be there for Ben through all of this.

      • laura in LA says:

        It always seemed to me that Ben was closer to Matt than Casey, but I think all three are like brothers, advising each other and working together in films.

        (Ben and Casey also did a pretty funny Moviefone Unscripted together for Gone Baby Gone, check it out on YouTube.)

        That scandal was pretty disappointing, but then again so was the film, a hoax, which as Ben and Matt predicted would not be well-received that way!

    • Ana says:

      There was write up before, an old one, but still active if you google Casey Affleck. He admitted at that time, that he wasn’t close with Ben. Ben was into the limelight, the glory of being a movie star. Ben likes the parties, the fun stuff that Hollywood offers. As for Casey, he just wants to act. He wants to make sure he has enough money so his kids can go to college.

      If you guys can YouTube Jennifer’s interview on DP during Dallas Buyers Club, Her and Casey have the same thought. She said that she didn’t want to aspire for more i.e.: Oscars awards. She is just grateful that she is getting work. If she could she would have gone back to school and do her Masters. Both, Casey’s and JG’s interviews were very insightful.

  107. Jets says:

    Seeing the pics of Ben and the nanny together at his pad in Usweekly is interesting, he really looks happy to see her, a smile we haven’t seen in awhile, granted it’s because he’s about to get laid but when you think about it, she came into his life at a time when he was vulnerable, lonely and angry, she was accessible, young and different, plus they probably bonded around the the kids who according to reports adored her and their mutual hate for Jen. What are the chances that Ben actually “loves” her and would come out and admit the relationship publicly so it’s out in the open now, no more hiding? Risk it all? His camp were quick to shut down the rumors and even threatened legal action, unlike when the rumors of his divorce/split with Jen were rampant, both camps went dark….. I don’t know but I for one am fascinated by this entire scandal and can’t wait to see how this all plays out probably because I have no life…

    • laura in LA says:

      So I wonder…at what point did Ben realize the nanny called the paps, then when did he get angry and cut her off?

      • Jets says:

        He obviously saw the paps because he’s looking right at the camera with a “wtf?!” look on his face, so he knew this was going to come out, he probably got pissed that evening because he knew they were busted and he’s f@cked! The media are putting it out there that she tipped the paps, unconfirmed, but ENews says their source is solid that she did. Usweekly is saying that as of their press time which was Monday before the news broke, Ben and the nanny were still together and in touch, so he may not have cut her off, she is after all staying at the Bel-Air hotel probably in his bungalow & he’s footing the bill. What might sour him is that she blabbed all this information to her friends, she couldn’t keep her mouth shut and neither could her friends, so all this very private stuff is out there, she doesn’t run in the Hollywood circles so she doesn’t know to keep things on the down low, she got excited that she was f@cking Batman. I think she’s a keeper.

      • laura in LA says:

        Jets, I haven’t seen the US Weekly photos yet, but I wonder…

        Why is she staying at the Bel-Air when she lives with her parents in Santa Monica, and if she’s in Ben’s paid suite, why doesn’t he have her kicked out? It’s almost like she’s taunting him/them now and not at all worried about being sued, so who’s paying and protecting her?

        This divorce so far is turning out to be stranger than Katie’s escape from Tom and Scientology.

    • Cheryl says:

      Yeah, the US Weekly photos: A picture is worth a thousand words, or in Ben’s case, a million dollars down the drain to your inept pr firm. Yes it looks like a booty call they are both very happy about, and she hands him a bottle of champagne and they hug.. so I guess his rehab didn’t take. i feel for the kids because this stuff is out there forever, they will be forever known as one of the “Daddy fucked the Nanny” families, their names splashed all over the tabloids. That will leave a scar.

    • laura in LA says:

      Ben got played, he sure doesn’t “love” her now!

      • Neah23 says:

        Like I said above I don’t think nanny call the paparazzi nor do I believe Ben found out about those photos, I think that came from Ben’s camp pretending to the nanny friends.

        I believe when Jen found out the about the affair the nanny was fired. I believe things were ok between Ben and Nanny for awhile until, the nanny wanted more. She was no longer working for them so that meant she and Ben could be together, but Ben was not looking for a relationship just a fling and dumb her and now she’s PO.

        Ben is not a victom here and I don’t think the nanny was the only one Ben was sleeping with outside of Jen.

      • Neah23 says:

        Sorry meant dumped Not dumb.

      • Jayna says:

        @Neah23, of course, she set up that photo. And if someone wasn’t sure of that, all you had to do was see how she sold all these stories and in there kept saying there was proof, the photo,which she needed proof to sell her story and she got it, and then how she was all put together for her two pap walks, with a big smile, loving every minute of it. the second the story came out. Ben was played. He thought he had the little nobody wrapped around his finger. The player got played.

  108. LAK says:

    This nanny is very foolish, but let’s hope she’s being paid because she’s made herself a public figure in a way that will make the female population hostile to her forever.

  109. JoJo says:

    I don’t know, everyone. Look
    at this story from today where Jen waves at paps, very purposefully (or, at least it looks that way) flashing her ring.

    I kind of feel like we’re all assuming this is going to go a certain way (divorce), but Jen is still clearly holding on to this marriage. Are you REALLY going to tell me the rings are all for the kids at this point? No way. And I agree, @ Laura in LA, Ben has wanted out of the marriage for a couple of years at least, but I think all of this is going to push him to seek cover (like he did after JLo), and Garner/family gives him that that. And Garner will get what she wants too – a Ben that’s dependent on her, at least for a while. I think we’re all pretty naive if we think she really wants to go through with this divorce. Yes, even at this point. I’m not saying they’re in love anymore, but I do think they are veering into real-life Gone Girl/Nick and Amy territory. (Namely, the ending, where they end up staying together.)

    • Jayna says:

      Ben may feel needy right now but he’s staying the course. He wants out and is glad to be out. She hung on and he made it so bad for her that she finally pulled the plug. Jen I imagine is done with him. What is going on behind the scenes cannot be pretty, but there’s nothing left to save in this marriage and she has to know that by now.

    • laura in LA says:

      In the top photos, I think Jen may be wearing the clothes of her character, and the wedding band, which appears to be gold, is part of that.

      It could be that she’s putting on a brave face in the bottom photos, but she looks self-satisfied, sort of like the nanny does as the cat who ate the canary.

    • laura in LA says:

      The media sure are running out of words to describe this nanny. DM calls her “stunning and trained…” (Hmm, impressive!)

      Trained in what? You’d think she was Sydney Bristow herself instead of what she is, an overrated babysitter.

      • Ming says:

        @laura in LA I really wish, Jennifer will proceed with the divorce. As you stated above, with the minivan majority on her side right now she is winning, and if she does (NOT) proceed with the divorce, she will going to lose her female supporters plus it would make her look sooo desperate to save the marriage. Do you think Ben has some dirty secrets that he is hovering againt Jen’s head that is why she cannot proceed to removed her wedding ring or divorce him?

      • Ana says:


        Are you trying to say it’s Ben who doesn’t want the divorce? Why wouldn’t he? People have been saying he wanted out for years now.

        I wanted JG out of this marriage for a little long time now. lol

      • Ming says:

        @Ana Me to I wanted JG out from her toxic marriage, my point is, is there a possibility that JG has some dark secret that we don’t know about (OR not known from the public knowing how she control her PR image) and that Ben used that now so she cannot proceed with the divorce (yet) or removed her ring? We know she is winning this is supposed to the right time to exit from her marriage and with recent scandal with nanny. He is using that against her now?… I read an article from radaronline per before nanny scandal which is obviously comes from Ben’s PR team I just gonna paste here the link

      • Jayna says:

        LOL “An overrated babysitter.”

    • Ming says:

      @JoJo I think they both want out, my theory is they wanted to divorce right after Jen give birth to Samuel that was about the time they started the marriage therapy/counseling thing but during that time, Ben’s career is soaring high he became in demand, and a missy divorce will going to complicate everything so I probably assumed that they comprise somehow. They will stay married and going to act as a perfect happy family, gushed on each other during interviews, they will stay married-but-no-longer-intimate kind of arrangements, (I know kind of cliche but who knows).
      Ben can sleep around /gamble/booze/smoke anytime he wants as long as he stay sober when he was with the kids. I think the final straw is the nanny or either way he gotten someone pregnant or much worse the hard drug theory.

  110. Dana says:

    Cheating is not good, he should have ended all relationships with Jen and then move to nanny if he wanted to.

  111. JoJo says:

    I guess it will be interesting to see. I do think Jen continues to look surprisingly smug in photos, as @Laura in LA said, like the “cat that ate the canary”, and I’m wondering why. The saga continues… 🙂
