Ben Affleck’s nanny has run up a $12k bill at the Hotel Bel-Air

Project Greenlight Season Four Premiere
Last night Matt Damon and Ben Affleck attended a premiere for the return of their behind-the-scenes filmmaking show, Project Greenlight, a full ten years after it last aired. The series comes to HBO on September 13th and chronicles first time director, Jason Mann, (the tall pale guy in the photos below) as he tries to make a movie with Affleck and Damon’s guidance. You can watch a teaser trailer here.

Affleck wore his wedding ring and wisely declined to talk to the press on the red carpet. Damon instead fielded questions on Affleck’s behalf and was amiable and vague, as you would expect. He said Affleck is doing “great” and that “He’s got a big smile on his face tonight.” The press also asked Damon about Affleck’s birthday, which is this Saturday. Damon said “I wish him well you know, but he’s 43. It’s not 40. It’s not 45. It’s like 43. You know it’s a forgettable birthday. I don’t even remember my 43rd birthday!” Yeah I’m 42 and I just didn’t even want to have a birthday this year.

As for other news, there’s still a steady drip of news about Affleck’s cheating scandal. We heard earlier that the nanny, Christine Ouzounian, was fielding offers to tell her story in an interview with a major outlet. Presumably Affleck is throwing enough money at her to avoid that. She’s been living high on the hog at the Bel Air hotel, and sources claim that Affleck is paying her bill, although he denies this. I would assume that’s the case given this latest news about the cost of the spa treatments and meals she’s been having at the four star resort:

Based on the length of Ouzounian’s stay, and factoring in meals and amenities, a Hotel Bel-Air source conservatively estimates the 28-year-old’s expenses at a cool $12,100.

That number would certainly put a strain on the budget of the average out-of-work nanny, but a source tells PEOPLE that Affleck, who’s been known to use the hotel as an escape for himself in the past, is “taking care of Christine’s expenses.” Another source close to the actor contends, however, that he “did not cover the Bel-Air bill. You would not find his card there, plain and simple.”

Her room alone, a junior bungalow suite, runs $1,500 a night plus tax – putting her six-night stay in the neighborhood of $10,400 just for accommodations.

Accounting for meals, many of which she was spotted taking at Wolfgang Puck’s eponymous restaurant at the hotel – where a source says she was likely treating her friends to food and drinks – that tab would run around $200 a day on the low end, or $1,200 for the week.

Ouzounian also took advantage of the hotel’s spa during her stay, with two visits to the facility appearing on her bill, the hotel source confirms. With each treatment averaging 60 minutes, the charge comes to $250 per trip (or $500 total) including tip.

[From People]

Damn. Ok, if Ben is not paying and simply gave this woman enough money to do this, how massively stupid was it of her to blow this much cash in a week? If Ben is paying, I get it she wants some control over the situation and feels hurt and is blowing his money. That doesn’t excuse it, it just gives some context.

Sources close to Ouzounian tell People that she and Ben are “in touch every day, all day long. He got them phones just for each other” and that she is “doing well” and Ben “trusts” her. He doesn’t trust her, he’s running scared now after realizing that sticking his dick into crazy didn’t work out.

Ouzounian has a private Instagram account, but several sites have screencapped a post she made recently of herself in a paparazzi photo, which she captioned with an Alicia Key’s lyric from Girl on Fire. “She’s just a girl and she’s on fire.” You can see it on ETOnline. Chica thinks she’s famous and she’s super proud of being the other woman.

Radar claims that Ben is super busy with all his projects and has been working 18 hour days to distract himself from his massive mistakes. I believe it. He’s got an addictive personality for sure. Also two of his projects with Warner Brothers recently had their dates pushed back.

Oh and after I wrote this story I found this new Page Six article in which The Post obtained a photo of Ouzounian posing in a private jet while wearing Tom Brady’s four Superbowl rings. Remember how she said that she traveled to Vegas with Affleck and Tom Brady? In that photo, which you can see on Page Six, she looks like the cat who ate the canary. Gisele is going to cut a bitch.

    Total side note….why the hell was Brady flying with 4 of his Super Bowl rings?

    • Jegede says:

      The gif – *Here go hell come* is playing in my head

    • MonicaQ says:

      There is no answer I can give without sounding like a bitter Dolphins’ fan so I’ll settle with, “Simply because he can.” and leave with my skin intact when it comes to Tom Terrific.

    • jinni says:

      Probably to impress all of the groupie chicks at the various Vegas clubs he most likely went to when he flew there with Ben and his mistress. I am sure Christine isn’t the only women that got a chance to wear them.

    • cannibell says:

      “Hey, want to come up to my hotel room and see my Superbowl rings?”

    • Kitten says:

      Please. Giselle is not letting Brady near any strange, believe that.

      • Alice says:

        Wasn’t she once the strange or am I confusing her with someone else?

      • chaine says:

        ummm, it looks like she did let him near some.

      • Tiffany says:

        @Kitten. But the Brady angle has been ignored in this wonderful gossip haven. I still believe that Giselle had a hand in those plastic surgeon photos being released to deflect that her husband could have possibly be fooling around on her.

      • FLORC says:

        Kitten
        A part of me thinks Giselle has total control over Tom with how he allows her styling and fashion choices. Maybe even likes it. Along with the stories she squirrels away her money and they only spend his. The narrative though is she carries his balls.

        THEN you remember he’s not her slave and is surrounded in a culture that protects its own. Cheating can be concealed and she isn’t around him 100%. Not saying he does, but it is entirely possible he could if he chose to. And some people can still be in love with their partners, but cheat just because.
        That this girl was there with Tom says atleast this. Tom knew the affair and felt he could conceal it. Because I doubt there was no affection on that jet trip. And if I was Giselle I’d be livid he in even passive action supported his married friend getting with the nanny and showing them a good time. I’d look at FMORC with side eye certainly.

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        Please, if he wants to cheat, he’ll cheat. Remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

        …And yes Alice, Bunchen is far from an angel herself, even if Victoria’s Secret dubbed her one.

    • Liberty says:

      A trip to Pawn Stars, baby!! ;-) …..he maybe thought they fined him four rings, not four games. “Gosh darn, oh, ok.”

    • doofus says:

      lmao! that was the FIRST question I had!!!

    • Esmom says:

      These athletes seriously wear them, don’t they? They’re not like Oscars that sit on a shelf. We have a friend who played with a Superbowl winning NFL team years ago and his ring is as important and permanent as his wedding ring.

      Although wearing four seems a bit excessive, lol.

      • FLORC says:

        Some all the time. Some only on special occasions. Some carry them nearby for various reasons. I’ve heard of some players getting duplicates because the originals are so high valued. She could be wearing the duplicates.

        He must have liked her. I wouldn’t even let someone I didn’t like wear my finishing medals. And that’s FAR less than a SB ring.

      • lucy2 says:

        Old friend of my dad’s has 4 SB rings also. I’ve only met him a few times, but at most he was wearing 1, if any. I would have remembered 4, because it would look really weird.

      • Kitten says:

        I don’t know about y’all but I think Putin and Kraft had an affair. I mean, Kraft let him wear his SB ring! If that isn’t proof that something illicit happened between them then I don’t know what is ;)

    • Birdix says:

      Mr Birdix went on a trip with some high-rolling baseball guys once and sent home a photo of himself wearing a bunch of WS rings (also on a private plane), so apparently traveling with that kind of bling is a thing. Amazingly enough, his trying them on and posing for a photo was not any kind of testament to his fidelity…

    • nikko says:

      @ jmho, that’s what I want to know.

    • Miss Gloss says:

      Seriously!?!? Same exact thought. Haha

    • someone says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Does he wear them all the time when he travels with his friends?

    • laura in LA says:

      I’m going to guess that since they were headed to a charity poker tournament, maybe Brady’s expected to show up/make his appearance with the rings?

      (I seriously doubt he travels with them everyhere just because!)

      • doofus says:

        oh, that does make sense, about showing them off at a charity event, maybe even letting people take a pic with them for a donation.

        I wouldn’t think that he’d travel with them just because, either.

    • Jib says:

      My first question too! WTF, Brady?! And Gisele is going bo kill him! Was she in a burka while this was going on?.

  2. GlimmerBunny says:

    I can’t decide if I like her or him less. I’ve started thinking that they might deserve each other.

  3. PHD gossip says:

    Gisele won’t like this one single bit. Oh, baby!

    • Ellecommelejour says:

      I would be sooooooooooooooooooo mad!!!
      I’m almost glad I’m single! Can’t trust (almost) no one nowadays :( ((

    • tracking says:

      Wow, she’s having a pretty crappy month, isn’t she?

    • Sandy says:

      My first thought was not about Jennifer or Ben or the nanny, since this story is old, boring and let’s face it, predictable.. It was about Giselle! Ben and the nanny are douching up the Golden Couple’s image, and someone is going to pay! Also, please tell me that Giselle didn’t get the eye-lift and boob job out of insecurity!

      • guest says:

        She didn’t get the eye-lift and boob job out of insecurity! Are you happy now?
        That story is BS! Do you really believe it? It’s Page Six!

    • doofus says:

      while I don’t think that Brady is cheating on her, I agree that, if I were Giselle, I’d be suspicious.

      it’s now confirmed that Brady was “bro-ing” it up with a buddy while the buddy was on a jaunt with the mistress. there is NO WAY that Brady didn’t know who this trick was, even if Ben said she was the nanny…the nanny is here but your kids aren’t?…they’re with their mother in GA but the pretty young nanny is going to Vegas with you?…Brady ain’t a dummy.

      any one of these men who was essentially “covering” for Affleck (Damon included) is going to have a very suspicious, and likely upset, spouse/partner who will want some sort of explanation. even if they’re not cheating, the “you covered for him…does he cover for YOU?!” suspicion is there. ugh, what a mess…

      • MrsBPitt says:

        Yup, I’m sure Tommy won’t be allowed to “play” with his buddy Ben, anymore!!!! Giselle will see to that!!!!!

      • Ellecommelejour says:

        “you covered for him…does he cover for YOU?!” … Exactly!
        Even though she is not my favorite, I do feel bad for anyone in that position. When the doubt / suspicious gets to you …it’s hard!

      • FLORC says:

        I should have read down! Posted the same above. It’s certainly passive acceptance of cheating and entertaining a mistress of your married friend.

    • Birdix says:

      I don’t know anything about Gisele & Tom’s relationship, so this is all theoretical, but why not imagine he came home and told her about Ben & the nanny? Just because your friend does something doesn’t mean you will too. People can be be friends and not all do the same thing, or even necessarily entirely approve of what the other person is doing. It’s not like Tom should have pinned a scarlet A to Ben’s chest…

      • Ellecommelejour says:

        Yes you’re right! We can also imagine things went like this. I’d prefer that.

      • The Original Mia says:

        Yep. There’s never been a whiff of infidelity about the Bradys. I’m with Lainey in thinking Tom ratted Ben out to Gisele and Gisele told Jennifer what was going on. And that’s why Christine was fired days later.

      • kibbles says:

        Yes, there is the possibility that irregardless of what is happening in Brady’s marriage, he told his wife what he saw and from there Gisele spread that info however which way until it reached Garner. I don’t know how tight Gisele is with Garner but if they are friends or have friends of friends, the gossip will have traveled quickly back to Garner.

      • Pamela says:

        My husband used to work in a very male-centric business. It was like a bunch of bros hanging out all day, and occasionally getting some work done. They would often go out together at night—maybe once every other month or so. I trusted my husband, but it always made me a LITTLE uneasy when he hung out with them because I knew a majority of them were not faithful to their wives. One was known for picking up prostitutes, one was known to cheat with randoms and if they had a bachelor party– they purposefully went to an out of the way dive a state away known for “extras”. It made me uncomfortable to know he was hanging with people that felt the way they did about their marriage vows, So I can see if Giselle wasn’t loving her husband buddying up to the nanny.

    • SeaBreeezy says:

      No she won’t! And I don’t blame her. If I found out my hubby was giving anything of his personally, to some girl, no matter the circumstance, I’d be upset. Because why? Why were you trying to impress her? And in this day and age of selfies, it gets rubbed in her face in front of millions of people. Not okay.
      But, I might be a bit biased. When I was dating my first hubby, he was in the Navy, and came home without his cool wool jacket that had all his mission patches on it. I noticed, because I liked to wear it when we were together. He mumbled something about a girl at the base bowling ally being cold. My radar went up, but I didn’t follow it up. I was 20, and still clueless. I found out years later, that he not only had lent her his coat, but walked her home, and he let her… Well, they got a little busy. If I had listened to my radar, I could have avoided the heartbreak that happened when he ran off with the secretary, 7 years, and 2 toddlers later. But I digress.

      I’m not overly jealous, but if you are my man, and you are sharing personal things, especially publicly, with some girl, I’m going to have a problem with it. Mainly because if you analyze human nature, you have to wonder what led up to that and why he felt the need, etc. I get the feeling that Giselle is going to see it the same way. That pic is a big deal, and when she sees it, he’s going to be in trouble!

  4. yuck says:

    Tom Brady travels with all four of his Super Bowl rings? Weird.

  5. jinni says:

    The only bitch Giselle needs to cut is Tom. Why is he chilling with his boy’s mistress all chummy in the first place?

    Also, you know if Tom knew about Ben’s affair that Matt, his bff, definitely knew about his other women/Ben messing around on Garner.

    • Jessica says:

      Well, yeah, everyone knew Ben was a cheater. Garner certainly knew, and if the wife knows and stays, what exactly are you meant to do with that information?

      • Iknowwhatboyslike says:

        This^^^^ 1,000%

      • jinni says:

        Only people that follow gossip knew all about his cheating, but their non gossip following fans didn’t and even if they heard about they just claimed the stories were lies. But now with all of this evidence being put out by reputable entertainment sources like People mag, it changes everything and with this story of his friend being cool with and hanging with mistresses it make many start looking really hard at the images of all of Ben’s friends.

      • doofus says:

        “and with this story of his friend being cool with and hanging with mistresses it make many start looking really hard at the images of all of Ben’s friends.”

        just what I was saying. and all of the spouses/gfs/partners are now going to think “you covered for him…does he cover for YOU?!”

        (and no, they didn’t provide an alibi, but not tattling is going to be seen as the equivalent of condoning it.)

      • Emma - The JP Lover says:

        @Doofus, who wrote: “and with this story of his friend being cool with and hanging with mistresses it make many start looking really hard at the images of all of Ben’s friends.” … Just what I was saying. and all of the spouses/gfs/partners are now going to think “you covered for him…does he cover for YOU?!” … (and no, they didn’t provide an alibi, but not tattling is going to be seen as the equivalent of condoning it.)”

        For not tattling to whom, the press? The 411 is that Jen has caught Ben cheating before and forgave him. That doesn’t mean he stopped, but it ‘does’ mean that his friends know that ‘Jen’ knows about his cheating. Are they supposed to shun him because he cheats on his wife? Would that prove they aren’t condoning his cheating? Perhaps they should tattoo a red ‘A’ on his chest?

    • Kitten says:

      I don’t get it. Why would Giselle be mad that Affleck’s nanny is wearing his SB rings?

      And I agree with you: if everyone here is basically saying that Brady is somehow guilty by association doesn’t that put Matt is the same boat?

      • Chinoiserie says:

        Well the nanny could have been sleeping with both guys if she is wearing the Superbowl rings. I mean it is no proof obviously but who knows what happens in these kind of circles so Giselle might be annoyed.

      • Wren says:

        It’s not the fact that she wore them, it’s because SHE was the one wearing them, if that makes any sense at all. She’s the one reveling in the attention she’s getting from being Affleck’s bangmaid, which points towards the idea that it’s the fame she’s really after and she is just “in love” with Affleck’s money and status. It wouldn’t be a big leap to imagine she’d try the same thing with his rich and famous friends. So a pic of her all cozy in the private jet with Brady’s rings on is going to raise some eyebrows. This isn’t some innocent, platonic friend tagging along on the bro-trip here.

      • Kitten says:

        I guess? It seems like a bit of a leap to me.

        I just don’t buy that Giselle is threatened by this chick. Christine is not unattractive by any means but she’s not exactly super-model material. Fairly or not, I always assumed that Ben got with her because he was lonely and she was the closest thing to a confidant that he had. She lived in his house, knew Jen and the kids, and had an already-established relationship with him. I think their affair was one of convenience more than anything.

        I don’t see how that would apply to Tom Brady though. Brady has no existing relationship with her. I think if Brady were to cheat on Giselle, it would be with an exceptionally beautiful woman and more importantly, one who knows enough to keep her mouth shut and values discretion above all. In other words, I would think he would be going to someone who does this professionally.

        Ugh. I just spent way too much time thinking about that..lol

        I do wonder what Giselle things about the nanny though. If your point is that she probably looks at her in a less-than-favorable way, well then yeah, I agree with you. I wonder what Jen and Giselle’s relationship is like, if they have one at all.

      • Wren says:

        I agree that you’re probably right about how Affleck and the nanny got their start. She was there, sympathetic, convenient, and obviously reciprocated. I’m sure she was a confidante of some kind (why else would he care so much about keeping her quiet?) and he went for it.

        Brady? I doubt Giselle is “threatened” by this woman, but let’s face it, men don’t only cheat with women who are exceptionally beautiful, they cheat with who is available. After getting a taste of fame, perhaps the nanny decided to be available. Who knows? I don’t know much about Brady, but it’s not unbelievable that a pro-football player would, uh, take advantage of that status.

      • doofus says:

        and remember, the Governator proved that the nanny/housekeeper/bangmaid (thank you Wren) doesn’t have to be supermodel material…just available.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah who knows? I always assume that all athletes, musicians, actors–really any rich celeb–cheats.
        Which is f*cked up, really. Sigh.

        But I still think that she blew her chances at snagging a rich celeb as soon as she went public with this. No married high-profile actor or athlete is going near this chick, knowing how she courted the press and leveraged this affair.

        Do we know if anyone else was on the plane? I assumed there was a whole entourage of people, not *just* Brady and the nanny.

        @Doofus-But that housekeeper/nanny had an existing relationship with Arnold and I also believe that affair was one of convenience as well.
        I just don’t envision Brady cheating on Giselle with some woman who is in the midst of an affair with his friend, who has now outed that affair in a very public way.

      • Wren says:

        Kitten: Honestly I assume that too. They have So Many Opportunities that the temptation must be overwhelming sometimes. And a lot of these people aren’t the brightest so……….. yeah. When you could have almost anyone for zero effort, well, it makes sense.

        I think the nanny has blown her chances NOW, but when they were flying to Vegas this thing hadn’t really blown up yet.

        If I was Giselle, I’d be side-eyeing Brady for palling around with his friend’s mistress. He obviously doesn’t mind that his friends cheat on their wives.

      • Kitten says:

        Exactly. WAAAAY too much temptation, plus they’re away from their families all the time. The distance alone would be so hard on a marriage.

        “If I was Giselle, I’d be side-eyeing Brady for palling around with his friend’s mistress. He obviously doesn’t mind that his friends cheat on their wives. ”

        I mean….I get that people hate Brady but I don’t think we should blame him for Affleck’s affair. It was never his job as Ben’s friend to morally police him anymore than it’s Matt Damon’s job.

        There had to be other people on the jet..somebody took that pic of her with the SB rings and I doubt it was Brady.

        But yeah, I’m curious as to the conversations that are being had in Giselle’s house right now. lol Oh, to be a fly on the wall…..

      • Wren says:

        I don’t blame Brady, because that’s stupid, but there’s something to be said for who you choose to hang out with. Who your friends are says a lot about you. No, you’re not responsible for morally policing your friends, but if you’ve got a lot of friends with questionable ethics, well, what’s your damage. I don’t hang out with people that do major things I consider wrong, their behavior would bother me too much. Like, I would NOT be okay just chilling and having a laugh with a friend and their sidepiece, let alone going on a trip with them.

      • Kitten says:

        As I said on a previous thread, one of my closest friends got involved with a man who was very much taken and living with his GF at the time. He ended up leaving her for my friend, got married, and they’re now expecting their first child. I went to their wedding and always stood by my friend even if by my personal moral standards, I wasn’t crazy about how they went about things.

        It’s important to note that I have NEVER cheated on any man that I was in a serious relationship with. I also still very much love my friend.

        But I’ve never bought the whole “you are the company you keep” line. My friends all bring something valuable and wonderful to my life. Their moral gauge is 100% their own responsibility and has virtually nothing to do with me. I mean, of course I won’t be friends with rapists or murderers but how one handles matters of the heart is a very subjective thing.

        *shrugs*

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        I can’t explain it if you don’t get it, but if I were Giselle, I would be super pi$$ed to
        see a tart wearing my man’s Super Bowl rings.

      • laura in LA says:

        I just wish the “on-fire” nightmare nanny-ho from hell would fly herself back there soon…

        This stupid, selfish b*tch is now taking everyone by association down with her.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      You can bet that Tom is cheating on Giselle too.

      • BlueNailsBetty says:

        I am a diehard TomBradySucks person and even I think Tom is deeply in love with Giselle and would not cheat on her.

  6. karen says:

    The most WTF thing about this is the fact that Tom Brady travels with all those rings, lol.

  7. Leigh_S says:

    “You would not find his card there, plain and simple.”
    HAHAHAHA
    But will you find his friend/lawyer/pr person/accountant/assistant/agent’s card there, who he can reimburse?

    Or is her card on file and he is just funnelling her cash …

    Seriously. Its just too easy to poke holes

    • Aussie girl says:

      My thoughts exactly!

    • Hawkeye says:

      Right, the physical presence of his credit card makes or breaks this story! I’m convinced!

    • tracking says:

      yup, exactly. That was total lawyer-speak.

    • Christin says:

      I found that funny as well. Of course it’s not HIS card.

    • OrigialTessa says:

      I’m in a similar business and deal with celebrity clients quite a bit, and it’s never their card on file; it’s the assistants or the secretary’s, and they pay the bill.

    • Jayna says:

      Yeah. That line said it all.

    • Wren says:

      I found that denial oddly specific. There’s more than one way to pay for things, you know!

    • Mean Hannah says:

      Exactly! I’ve mentioned before that I work in entertainment. Before that, as a college student, I was an executive assistant to executives at Fortune 500 companies. In both fields, I spent extensive amount of time and energy covering for my clients/bosses, arranging for hotel/air/transportation for the mistresses, lying straight out to wives, and the kicker – to their #1 mistresses (there are always more than one). The scariest time for me was when the wife, mistress #1, and new “girlfriend” were all at the same event and I had to move them around to separate them, all the while carry $20,000 in cash spilling out of my small bag.

  8. Tate says:

    So Brady just walks around with all of his Super Bowl rings?? Weird….

  9. Ronda says:

    That Tom Brady story sounded sooo random when it frist was published, looks like it was true. i wonder why the gossip mags arent going after him for that.

    • MonicaQ says:

      I think the regular media is having enough of a field day with the Deflated football mess (I refuse to stick “gate” on the end of that, ugh) that they really don’t have to?

      • Kitten says:

        Actually if you’ve been following the controversy then you’d notice an almost deafening silence coming from the media outlets ever since the court transcripts were released. ESPN (AKA the NFL’s mouthpiece) has been eating sh*t since Mortensen came out with the truth: his report that 11/12 Pats’ balls were deflated by 2 PSI was an outright lie that was fed to him by the NFL.

        Funny how Goodell and his counsel lobbied so hard to seal the court transcripts from Brady’s appeal hearing while Brady’s counsel wanted it released right away. Why? Because it makes Goodell and Wells look AWFUL. When those two knuckleheads realized that they couldn’t hide the transcripts from the public, they released the red-herring of Brady’s destroyed cellphone.

        On a Friday afternoon.

        Knowing that Brady’s people couldn’t respond until Monday, and letting it fester in peoples’ minds over the weekend.

        Never mind that Wells testified under oath that he indeed told Brady that they didn’t need his phone, and that he wouldn’t be penalized for not turning it over.

        Anyway, the tide has turned and almost every news media outlet is reporting that the NFL looks really REALLY bad right now and I’m loving every f*cking second of it. I don’t care if you hate the Pats–I certainly won’t tell you not to–but if you’re a fan of football you should be calling for Goodell’s resignation because it could happen to your team too. Don’t forget about what he did to the Saints–the Pats are not the first team for this to happen to.

      • The Original Mia says:

        Kitten, I’m enjoying the schadenfreude so so much. Goodell and Wells look ridiculous. They were discussing all of this on Sunday Night Football and Chris C was dumbfounded by the NFL’s actions. Now, there are rules in place for this type of thing, but to penalize without any real proof…sue the hell out of them Tom! Sue them!

      • Kitten says:

        @The Original Mia-It is a beautiful thing to behold, isn’t it?

        Hey MonicaQ- Did you see now that the Fins’ former assistant coach is suing Ted Wells now? He did the same sh*t to Ted Turner too, you know.

        After the Richie Incognito bullying scandal hit the presses, the NFL commissioned Wells to write a report assigning blame to Turner without any concrete proof that he was a part to the bullying that took place. All in an attempt to placate the public and retain the “integrity” (LOLOLOL @ that word) of the NFL. This is what the NFL (Goodell and Wells) does to preserve their brand image and keep the money coming in. But Brady isn’t gonna be the next sacrificial lamb and if he’s gonna go out, it’ll be with guns blazing.

        I laugh so hard when people talk about the Pats and their “history” of cheating. What about Goodell’s history of railroading innocent people? Nah, let’s just ignore that.

    • Colette says:

      Edit

    • jinni says:

      The pic confirming the story just came out. Give them time.

      • Heather says:

        YES Kitten yes times 1000 to everything that you said about Goodell! I have said from the beginning of this deflated football non-story (shockingly agreeing with Donald Trump) that Tom Brady should sue Goodell and the NFL for $250 million. It is pathetic that they have tried to ruin the good name and reputation (thus affecting his ability to make money via sponsorships) over NOTHING. It makes me furious. And all the Patriot haters are really just short-sighted, because yes, it will be your team next unless Goodell is fired.

        Now I do not know what in the hades Tom was doing on the plane with this ho, but I do not think he is anything other than utterly devoted to Gisele. And maybe I am delusional, but I will stay over here happy in my delusion.

      • Kitten says:

        Heather–Right? Don’t let accurate information get in the way of a good story.
        It’s actually f*cking terrifying to see how many people just believed all the misinformation out there, without ever reading The Wells Report.

  10. Allie says:

    I am screaming over that photo with the girl on fire caption. Girl has lost touch with reality. I needed that laugh this morning.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      She really seems like a nut job!!!! If I were Ben, I would be terrified….this girl is TROUBLE! I hope she was worth it? Although, at this point, I’m sure he is regretting his, um, indiscretion…

      • Aussie girl says:

        She truly thinks she has made it. I’m think they are both as bad as each other and it takes two to tango ( horizontally). But I just can not stand that smug look she has on her face.

      • DodieTn says:

        I tell you this girl is nuts. Ben may have had a fling but she is not going away without him or serious cash. And does he have a corset or girdle on?

      • Jayna says:

        They deleted my posting of the lyrics to Girl on Fire. Go google them. After you read the song’s lyrics, you realize she is so full of herself and delusional and will not be silenced. Ben will have to bite the bullet and pay her off. But that may not even be negotiable. I think this wanna be star thinks she’s worth millions like that Tiger Woods’ woman got. Wasn’t it $10 million she got to keep quiet? So I’m sure Bunny-Boiler Nanny has $$$$$$ in her eyes in the millions range. He may just say, “Go sell your story. I’m not paying what you want.” Then he’ll just issue a statement he hurt his wife and family during them separating by his selfish behavior of becoming too close to someone in their employ and he’s very sorry by the pain he caused, and then he will just bury his head in work since he has two films to write and do some more children pap walks over the months

      • Neah23 says:

        How is she crazy?

      • Jonesy says:

        I am totally picturing her curled up in a chair in her bathrobe at the Hotel Bel Air, pulling the string on the lamp…off / on / off / on. “I will not be ignored, Ben!”

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        @jayna, don’t forget rehab. He can always go to rehab.

      • KellyBee says:

        @ Neah23

        Remember you asking that question before and did get an answer and I don’t think your going to get one know. It seems like people are just throwing out words like “crazy” without backing it up.

        She’s fame hungry just like Kim Kardashian but no one calls Kim crazy, funny how that works

      • FLORC says:

        Neah23
        Well, she’s said a Non Disclosure Agreement ends after employment so she’s not too bright. She’s made sure she’s gone as public as possible at the expense of her former employers and their marriage. Likely leading to the backlash this directly has on the children she’s once cared for.
        That she’s blowing this money she’s getting somehow and playing this all very poorly (both fame press and threatening legal action for being fired) I’d call her a bit of a nut. Certainly her level of “Crazy” would need proper context to answer. If we knew what her end game or just what she hoped for was there and if she thought this was how to achieve it. Then we could judge her leve of “crazy” and not technical insanity. And that’s a side point. Literal translations are not always the way words are being used here.

      • Not to add fuel to a purely semantic argument, but perhaps crazy isn’t the right word, although DELUSIONAL definitely is, and so we’re really splitting hairs here.

        And really, why would he need to keep paying her off? The world already knows she exists, it’s not like he needs to protect himself, his career, or the family from knowing about her, so unless there’s something more like a pregnancy or something, he would do well to let her have her fun and leave her twisting in the wind. She is completely delusional thinking that she is “on fire”. She clearly thinks she’s cracked it. The reality is mistresses in LA are a dime a dozen, and she has already blown through the lion’s share of the money he will likely make from this. If there isn’t more to this story, the modern attention span will quickly tire of this. I for one, would not mind at all watching her get left twisting in the wind. you mess with someone’s married spouse, you are owed nothing. That’s not to say Affleck is not just as guilty…just looking at it from her perspective. I get the distinct feeling that she feels she is owed something. The only thing she has coming is a man-sized bite of a reality sandwich.

      • laura in LA says:

        Neah23, “how is she crazy”? No wonder you can’t see it, you’re crazy, too!

    • Ellecommelejour says:

      Thank you! What is wrong with people??? What has the world come to?
      So being responsible/ part of a married couple breaking up is something to be proud of???
      It’s a sad world, for real!

      • Jessica says:

        The divorce had already been announced before Garner knew anything about this, and they had been separated long before this relationship started up.

        She’s a piece of work, but this chick has nothing to do with breaking up the marriage. It was already over before she arrived on the scene.

      • Ellecommelejour says:

        My apologies then, I should have checked the timeline better.
        May I just add that this girl seems to be a bitch though ?!

      • Somehow, I don’t think that the timing of the divorce makes her behaviour any less tacky or delusional. This is a person who is looking to “make it big” on the back of sleeping with a celebrity and being “the other woman”. That’s two reasons right off the bat to have zero respect for her, with or without the relationship ruiner label. She is also going to make it more difficult for the rest of the professional, well-intended nannies out there to make a go of it, and I imagine the agency who originally hired her will be getting a lot of celebrity side-eye as well. I certainly hope she is investing whatever cash she can lay her hands on, because there doesn’t look to be anything particularly special or newsworthy about her.

        Twenty bucks says she’ll try to record a “hit” song and have a singing career, a la Real Housewives. That’s the modern, reality TV way to try and create talent there there is none.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      “This crotch is on fire” after getting with Ben more like!

  11. Talie says:

    If I was Gisele, I’d be wondering what was happening on that plane.

  12. Jess says:

    The thing that struck me most about this is Tom Brady bringing all of his rings on a trip to Vegas? Does he just randomly bust them out at any given point? Lol

  13. christine says:

    I have a question: is the nanny the woman he was seeing in that small Canadian town in April? Lainey had a blind item on it. If not, then who was that?

    • Abbott says:

      When all of this started coming out, she was hell bent on dropping hints that it was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and/or his costar from Into the Wonder. She has since backed off that narrative. Lainey’s ego is big enough that if it was the nanny with him in April, she’d be reminding us of that every day. I’m sure she’s right about the costars, but Lainey missed the boat on the nanny scoop.

      • Jayna says:

        She missed it big time. And why is she right about Gal Gadot? She is married with a small child and talks about her husband a lot in interviews. It’s insulting to say that women just drop at Batfleck’s feet and throw everything away or drop their panties. He’s not the hottest man on earth by any stretch to make every woman lose her morals to be with a married man and/or throw away her family.

        It’s insulting to insinuate every co-star with Ben is screwing him. I imagine a couple have over the years, but that’s not every one they keep linking him too. He might have been with Olga years ago back when he made To the Wonder, but I doubt there’s anything going on there either now years later. She’s been doing movies, off promoting with Russell Crowe, making another movie, lives in Provence and is always tweeting about food or stuff from her home.

        Lainey was so far off the mark and she’s gone very quiet in relation to that.

      • Abbott says:

        I did not say it was every costar.

      • Jayna says:

        @Abbott, sorry. I was just talking in general about all the posts on here or by gossip columnists, like Lainey, that it’s known he’s always cheating with his co-stars and Lainey always throwing out random actresses he’s worked with like she’s in the know on every one of them. It was more in response to that, not me saying you said that. I worded it poorly

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Abbott, I think you interpreted the blind wrong. It wasn’t about wonder woman. It was about “to the wonder”, bens film with Olga Kurlyenko It was about Olga, not Gal.

      • laura in LA says:

        Lainey is like many other gossip bloggers (CB, present company excluded, of course!)

        She gets tips from sources, whose own motivations are unknown, tidbits of info that she then spins into her own story. If you remember Ted Casablancas, the more nonsensical his posts, the more likely it was that he was just trying to spin something out of nothing. And neither one of them ever has to present photo proof…

        Which, by the way, if so many people reported seeing them, then where are photos of Ben with the woman in Canada? And given that this nanny has already leaked non-revealing photos of herself visiting Ben and flying on his jet, where’s the one of her sitting on his lap kissing him? Or is she teasing us and Ben, quite literally buying herself some time until she gets whatever it is that she wants?

        And, yes, I’m actually more inclined to believe this account of the Vegas trip: http://pagesix.com/2015/08/11/ben-afflecks-friends-deny-ex-nanny-affair/

        The nanny’s a liar, and I’m calling her bluff, also hoping they sue the cheesy white pants (and that sh*t-eating grin) off of her!

    • Iknowwhatboyslike says:

      Ben try to distract us with this nanny being his main mistress all he wants. All this mess doesn’t anwer the one burning question: Who was he with in Canada? My working theory is that Ben did in fact have an affair with the Nanny, because he’s just gross. But, he is using her as a distraction so the heat can come off his real mistress and when he starts parading her around town, she won’t be as villified if it was known that she was also sleeping with him while married. This nanny situation is all a red herring. Ben, you’re not fooling me.

      • Valois says:

        I think that if there was another mistress (an important one), she’d be gone by now.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        I’m going to disagree. The simplest explanation nearly always the correct one. I think the red herring theory is too convoluted.

      • Saywhatwhen says:

        Agree that nanny is red herring too. Lol @ us. Publicists and the magazine editors must laugh at us all day long.

  14. MsGoblin says:

    The situation seems to somewhat parallel the mistress in Gone Girl. He’s in a panic to hid or get rid of her, but she is in LUUUURRRRRRV (or in this case, drunk on publicity).

  15. MrsBPitt says:

    After seeing the pics on Page Six, I have decided that Ben is the biggest idiot on the planet and the Nanny is the biggest bitch on the planet. And, that I am the stupidest fan on the planet, because I defended Ben before Nannygate happened! I am sick of seeing this “proud to be the other woman’s” face in my beloved celebrity news everyday. I cannot wait until her fifteen minutes are up! And, why does she have, what appears to be a wedding ring on her finger, in those pics???

    • DodieTn says:

      I noticed the ring too. She is a piece of work.

    • roses says:

      saw the ring too, it looks like a wedding band but maybe she just wears a ring on that hand but still strange

    • Jayna says:

      I was one of his defenders, too. Don’t feel alone. LOL

      I still like Ben. I don’t hate him like some one here do. But this is beyond my imagination of what he is capable of in its stupidity and selfishness regarding his family. But the marriage was ending, and all he had to do was let it end with some dignity for his wife, not banging the nanny and disrespecting his wife in her own home with her hired help and husband betraying her and thinking about his kids, not getting his ego massaged and something else massaged. His wife of ten years deserved his respect as the marriage was ending. And, Jen, just stop it. Take off the ring and stop with the family togetherness photo-ops.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        Exactly, Jayna!! Couldn’t he have waited and let the marriage end, with at least some dignity! For a guy who hated having the paps in his biz…..he sure screwed the pooch (or should I say the Nanny) with this disaster!!!!!

      • Saywhatwhen says:

        Maybe wife of ten years kept clinging and would not give up so he did her a public turn so she would have no choice but to let go. And, once wife saw what he was up to, hell if she would let him destroy her narrative, so she (as well as he) are in a smear-off campaign and brawl. Husband keeps nanny on pay roll because it also hides a bigger secret he needs to suppress.

    • Wren says:

      I don’t hate him either, funnily enough, I just kind of feel sad for everyone in a way. It’s not like Garner didn’t know what he was like, dude’s got his demons and he’s not too good at covering them up. It think he’s either incredibly stupid or incredibly blinded by said demons to do what he’s done, neither of which is a fun way to live. I feel sorry for Garner too, it’s hard to deal with an addict, and she may have thought (or he may have told her) he could change. I feel sorry for the nanny too because I don’t think she’s a bitch, I think she’s very, very dumb and her stupidity is already biting her in the ass and she obviously doesn’t notice yet. And naturally the kids too.

  16. Tate says:

    Neither Matt or Ben look like they want to be there in that top pic.

  17. Catelina says:

    Honestly, it’s becoming a little ridiculous how sloppy Ben was through this whole thing. He keeps shelling out cash only for her to leak another new picture. It makes me think that there’s no way he could’ve had an affair like this in the past, or surely it would’ve blown up in his face somehow. unless he used to be more careful and just stopped for some reason?

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised, if it was the tabloids paying for her hotel stay…and she is cleverly, just giving them a little at a time….

      • Pamela says:

        I tend to agree with this. It just seems weird for Ben to be paying if she keeps talking.

        $12k may not be a lot of money for a tabloid to pay, if it means getting more tidbits to publish and make money off of.

      • Luca76 says:

        I think you are over estimating how much a tabloid would actually pay for this story. I mean a media outlet might put up someone in a fancy hotel for a night or two to do a full interview, but definitely not for weeks on end. Mistresses tell all stories aren’t worth much more than 12 grand and at this point the story is pretty much out there.
        Ben’s paying for her and he hasn’t figured out how to shut her up, or is enough of a sadistic pr**k that he doesn’t care about her antics.

        EDIT:I looked it up and Michelle Mgee got 30,000 when she sold out Jessie James and that’s when she gave every detail of the affair. The nanny is dropping hints and making threats but ultimately hasn’t given anything up.

      • NewWester says:

        Someone brought that up on another thread. Christine is getting her fifteen minutes plus a all expenses paid vacation/stay at a nice hotel and the tabloids get more hits for their websites which means more money.

      • MinnFinn says:

        In Touch quotes her friend – “Ben has given her enough money to cover all her bills and expenses, plus spending money, for at least the next three months,”
        and this
        “Christine is living the high life holed up in a swanky suite and Ben is paying for all of it — even for her girlfriends, who have been staying with her,”

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        I disagree with the tabloid theory. Again, the simplest
        explanation is usually correct. I doubt the tabloids could fund that
        bill, and if so, to what end? That is a lot of money to spend just to extend
        a story. What if it is true that he actually “loves” the nanny as she claims?

    • Jessica says:

      It’s what he does. When he wanted out of his engagement with J.Lo he went and slept with a stripper who immediately sold the story. Plenty of strippers in LA who never would have talked, but he went off to a random strip club and found himself someone who would.

      He clearly wanted out of the marriage to Garner, and his behavior just got worse and worse until he got what he wanted. I’m sure there’s been quite a few indiscreet affairs in the past year or so, this chick is just the first to talk. There were tons of sightings of him with other women, lots of rumours swirling…this is just the one that picked up more steam than he bargained for.

      • Luca76 says:

        Agreed people really want to give a shred of decency to Ben and want to canonize Jen but they both have a pattern. He keeps upping the ante and being an indiscreet pig and she keeps forgiving and helping to clean up the mess for the sake of their public image.

      • Wren says:

        This is also an older man who has been living with addictions for many, many years. He isn’t twentysomething anymore, they take their toll.

      • Cindy says:

        @Jayna
        I think you are right. The nanny thing was just so textbook, I thought for awhile Garner hired her on purpose so Ben would hang himself. I did not think Garner was at fault for their separation, I just thought she finally got mad enough to do something. But I have changed my thinking. This is all Ben’s doing, and it is his way of forcing Garner to divorce him. I am kind of horrified to think of what she must of put up with over the last ten years.

      • Cindy says:

        Sorry, I meant @jessica not jayna. Getting my j ‘s mixed up :)

  18. PHD gossip says:

    By the way Nanny is wearing a Cartier “love” Bangle bracelet that costs about $8K.
    Just saying.

  19. Beth No. 2 says:

    Girl on fire this month, hopefully girl on a pyre the next. Enjoy your 15 minutes.

  20. Kiddo says:

    Are we completely sure she isn’t a call girl versus a nanny? Because that’s how she’s playing this situation out, it’s reminiscent of those type of stories. Like a page out of the Ashley Dupré handbook.

    • Christin says:

      She’s an interesting ‘nanny’, isn’t she? I wound like to know the timeline of her nanny jobs with NPH and this household. She sounded like a job hopper, according to one report.

      Wouldn’t an agency for higher wealth clients do better screening?

      • Mean Hannah says:

        She probably got that nanny job for NPH through her sister, who was already working as his house manager or assistant. I don’t think she’d have passed muster with a Beverly Hills agency otherwise.

  21. roses says:

    She looks different in this photo on the plane than the one where she’s walking with a friend. She favors J Lo a lot especially the smile.

  22. PHD gossip says:

    U know what I just realized? Tom Brady took the flight with the “Nanny” when Gisele was in Paris for her plastic surgeries. Bet Gis just found out about this!!!

  23. me says:

    the nanny should have tought better before selling that picture with tom’s rings, gisele is about to roast her ass

  24. JoJo says:

    @ Jessica – re: the timeline, no, Jen had already suspected something was up between Ben and the nanny BEFORE they announced the divorce, but she invited the nanny to the Bahamas anyway. When she found out about the Vegas trip, that’s when they announced their intent to divorce – three days AFTER Jen found out about the Vegas trip. So, Jen already knew about the nanny when they announced. This timeline is what was reported by People mag and many others last week.

    • Luca76 says:

      No they had already announced an intent to divorce and went to the Bahamas with the nanny.
      EDIT:
      Oh wait you are right about the timing read it wrong.

  25. kay says:

    Affleck not only doesn’t know how to keep the nanny quiet he will also drag and expose Brady’s balls.

  26. Christin says:

    Still not sure what her end game is, but she certainly got some photo documentation of her alleged relationship. Photos of her driving Ben’s car and now the rings photo.

    Wonder if one of the man-children took the photo on the plane?

    • MrsBPitt says:

      That’s what I was thinking…which idiot took the pic?

      • Christin says:

        Funny, I edited ‘idiots’ to ‘man-children’ before posting. Because they are truly (careless) idiots. Money does not buy smarts, obviously.

    • DodieTn says:

      Maybe there was a hook up with her sis or friend for Tom and she has those pics too. Ben and Tom traveling with side pieces and there pics of that and she wants to expose those too. There more to this story, it’s too basic and she has too much power right now for a side piece.

  27. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    Ben is now the poster boy for stupid. I can’t believe he’s making public appearances. He needs to pay the nanny off and then disappear for at least six months.

    But he’s Ben, so I expect something very stupid and cringe-worthy to happen later this week.

    • Esmom says:

      I can’t believe he’s making public appearances either. It makes me think he’s a bit delusional to think theres not a gigantic elephant in any room he enters right now.

  28. Know-it-all says:

    Nanny is the best decoy for Ben through this divorce.I have to gi e it to Ben he sure knows how to get women to do the dirty job for him.He could not have fallen on better help Jennifer ease just divorce this man and get on with your life you are certainly not his mother or assistant but you are acting like both now the guys wants to chase more exciting women.

    • Aren says:

      ^This. Women are doing the dirty job for him.
      Other sites are full of hate for the girl, and of course it’s wrong what she did, but in a year he’ll be going to movie premiers with another movie star and she’ll be lonely and unemployed.

  29. Alice says:

    ” He doesn’t trust her, he’s running scared now after realizing that sticking his dick into crazy didn’t work out.”
    Nailed it.

    PS. I just hope JG sees that page 6 photo to solidify her decision to get rid of that asshat.

    • Betti says:

      Yep – why else would she camp out at his favourite hotel if not to stalk. Maybe she’s there to imply that there is still something going on which there may have been just as the divorce broke but not now.

      I don’t think he’s paying – a mag might be but that depends on what she can give them. I suspect she’s fed them a line that the affair is ongoing and that he left his wife for her.

  30. Daisyduck says:

    But wait…why is the nanny wearing what looks like a wedding band on her wedding band finger? Or am I missing something/being stupid?

  31. lisa2 says:

    I don’t know.. this all feels surreal. I tried to give Ben the benefit of the doubt about the Nanny. People are accused of cheating all the time. But this was so different. There was an actual person and she is talking. Not unnamed sources or some insider.. We have an actual face to go with the story and this makes it all so bad. Ben is a complete fool. And I’m sure Matt is pissed as hell with him. They are trying to get their Production Company on the forefront. This is one of their major projects and Ben can’t promote it. He is an Oscar winning Director and he can’t answer questions about film making because he is in the middle of scandal. Matt has to field questions and dance around the elephant in the room. All that dancing about a birthday; implying that Ben is not going to be partying for it because it is not a “big birthday”.. “and I wish him well”.. Ben is Matt’s BF.. really that sounds do generic; like someone you don’t know… oh Matt..

    Ben has no player game at all. I have a younger brother that is a player. The guy can juggle 3 or 4 women at a time and never miss a beat. He is single so I don’t give him crap for it. But he keeps things tight and under control. Ben is not a player because he didn’t see he was being played by a better player. And is suppose to be so good at poker. She is calling every move he makes with a better hand; and she is showing everything. But she must have a serious Hold Card; because Ben is sweating.. and I’m scared to see if she throws down big.. because I think she has something Big she is still holding.

    He is an ass and I just can’t believe how this man has thrown his life to the dogs this way. He was riding high.. and he does some amateur stuff like this..

    Bad play.. Ben.. BAD BAD BAD..

    • Saks says:

      “But she must have a serious Hold Card; because Ben is sweating.. and I’m scared to see if she throws down big.. because I think she has something Big she is still holding”

      This. I’m sure its the harcore drugs. Maybe he did heroine in front/with her and she has the receipts.

      • Aren says:

        Honestly, at this point, the fact that she could reveal those things would help clean his image.
        She would look worse than she already does, he would go to rehab and everybody would assume he made a mistake because he wasn’t sober.

        But I actually don’t think it’s the nanny pulling the strings. Like somebody else said, Ben is using this girl to get out of his marriage, and he’ll keep using her for as long as he wants.

  32. Crumpet says:

    Oh my goodness. So much here that is just…. unfathomable. I don’t even know where to start.

  33. Friday says:

    I am surprised that her instagram account is set to private. You’d expect her to be trying to get as many followers as possible before her 15 minutes are up.

    • Aren says:

      I’m kind of surprised she has an instagram account. If I was doing something unethical, the last thing I would do is share it through social media.

      Even for somebody who loves attention, this seems to be a really bad idea.

      • Esmom says:

        Really? For people like her, Instagram is key. Because if it’s not public than it’s not legit (never mind ethical, I don’t think she cares about ethics, lol) seems to be the thinking.

      • Neah23 says:

        Why she giving the people what they want. Lol

        People said they didn’t believe Ben cheated on Jen unless their was evidence she gave them that, people they need pictures or it wasn’t true and she gave them that too.

      • laura in LA says:

        Neah23, what are you imagining in these photos? There’s nothing in them, but I guess you see what you want to see!

  34. Nibbi says:

    igh, just igh, to all that… bleh.
    affleck, that random nanny, brady… they’re all just gross and deserve the infamy.

    i love matt damon, on the other hand. but… what’s happened with his nose? he’s always had such a cute pug nose. please, please tell me he hasn’t gotten a nose job??? can someone’s snout suddenly get tiny, weird, and pointy like that just with age? … ??

    • Alice says:

      Maybe he did get a nose job. I guess it’s a better response to a midlife crisis than what Ben’s done.

    • Ennie says:

      he has always had it, you had not noticed it? sometimes it looks just lie a comic book nose, like Archie’s nose or maybe Reggie’s.

      • Becks says:

        So long as it doesn’t resemble Jughead’s needle nose.

        I grew up reading the old Archie’s. Nice to see someone mention a touchstone of my childhood.

  35. Jas says:

    The nanny’s an attention seeking nutjob, she’s so proud of her claim to ‘fame’. The responses on her Instagram explain everything; her friends are idiots encouraging this obnoxious, deranged, pschyo stalking behaviour.

    I love Matt Damon, he gets more attractive with age although he would have looked much better in a nice suit.

    I don’t understand why Ben, who looks like he hates the media attention and seems very depressed over being hunted, keeps attracting more attention by wearing his ring. Does he have no friends to knock sense into him by explaining that for as long as he’s playing married man, he’s going to be treated as such and everything he does will be considered cheating or betraying his ex and there will be continued interest. It’s that relationship with the dramatic public narrative that attracts pap and tabloid attention. He should have separated from her without any rings, moved on publicly and avoided being seen with his ex in public until it was accepted that he moved on. He just looks so miserable and insincere in how he presents himself. He needs to stop faking for appearances because it makes people distrust him.

  36. kri says:

    What a damn mess. this girl isn’t going to be put aside unless some serious money is coming her way. I think she is giving him some time to come get her. If he leaves her twisting, she will spill the tea, the sugar, and the milk to the highest media bidder. Ben, you are a f$cking idiot.

  37. cakecakecake says:

    Matt Damon is paying, LOL
    come on there is a dummy card that is loaded with money or weekly bills go to bill heaven and it gets paid there. :)

    I’m sick of her already

  38. Mop top says:

    I wouldn’t mess with Giselle, that’s for sure.

  39. chaine says:

    the one i feel bad for in all of this is Jason Mann. All of the tabloid frenzy completely obliterates any serious attention to Project Greenlight. He looks seriously bummed. I think Matt Damon is worried about him, too! Look at the look on Matt’s face, and he appears to be literally propping Jason up!

    • Christin says:

      They should have worn shirts with arrows pointing towards Ben, as in, ‘We’re with him, unfortunately’.

      I really wonder who does the heavy lifting in these projects anyway. Ben seems like the type who talks up his work, but may be the ‘fun guy’ who gets headlines.

  40. Betti says:

    Nanny better run, Giselle is coming for ya! Innocent or not she will not be happy her family is being dragged into this mess. She’s not getting any traction with Ben so is moving onto someone else to prolong her infamy.

    The crazy is strong with this one and it might be the lesson Affleck needs – be careful where you dip ur wick, you might get burned.

  41. Lara Morgana says:

    Poor Ben really screwed the pooch on this one. He should have watched “Fatal Attraction” a few times. This nanny creature is bat shit crazy.

  42. belle de jour says:

    I love how un-Hollywood, un-jaded and un-burnt leathery that pale, lanky fledgeling filmmaker in his bespoke suit looks, standing sandwiched between those two.

    It’s almost ominous to see each of their claws on him.

  43. db says:

    She’s kind of pathetic, so they may be a good match after all. Note to self: Manny, not nanny.

  44. Ana says:

    The wedding ring the nanny is wearing is similar to Jen’s. She seemed very familiarl with Brady because she was able to wear all the rings for this picture. It doesn’t add up.

    • Sandy says:

      Seriously, what’s up with that? Had to be a strange conversation leading up to the nanny being allowed to wear four Super Bowl rings. Was she being super-chummy with Tom Brady? Did Affleck talk Tom into it to impress her?

    • Ana says:

      I know Brady and Affleck were at Pac Mayweather fight in Vegas. Giselle wasn’t there and there was a talk that Affleck brought his side piece to the after party. Wonder if it is same person….

    • Neah23 says:

      What dosen’t add up? She ask Brady to try on his rings he said yes and she got a picture wearing them. As for the her ring I do believe she was engaged, I can’t remember it her engagement was called off ether before Ben or after the affair with Ben started.

      • Aren says:

        I agree with Neah23. All guys (specially a professional athlete, I’m sure) love to that kind of attention.
        He probably showed the rings, and she wanted a pic with them on. I think most people would’ve done the same if it was a friendly setting.

      • Ana says:

        What I meant by not adding up was there must be some level of being comfortable with Brady. As if the nanny was an old friend and she is just hanging out and not an employee. It feels like they have met before or hang out before with Affleck.

      • Neah23 says:

        I’m not seeing the level of being comfortable with Brady that you are. She was with Ben so I’m sure Brady trusted her because of that and was ok with her trying on his rings. I mean she was not there as a nanny but as a special guest of Ben.

      • Saywhatwhen says:

        Wonder which of them took the picture? Maybe neither of the two men? Another woman…?

      • guest says:

        There were many other people on the plane and many of these also tried on Tom’s Super Bowl rings and took photos!

  45. jccw says:

    Lainey said yesterday that even some of Hollywood thinks she’s a fame wh*re. The burning question is…are they still together? I just can’t see if they still are (because he loves her, ha) and he waits a few months to bring her out, a good chunk of the public and maybe a part of Hollywood may not accept her. Yes, it’s his business and not ours, but as we’ve said before, his image is the most important thing to him. Also, why is no one talking to her ex fiancee? One article said she broke it off because of his drug use…..yup, so hook up with another abuser? I also think it’s pretty sad that she just got fired, and look at that smile on the plane. She has no regrets.

  46. holly hobby says:

    Well now we know the Nanny got to play with Tommy’s deflated balls. Waiting for Mrs. Tommy to go after her.

  47. Jen says:

    These are not wise men. Traveling with all your SB rings? Allowing photographic evidence? As for Hollywood accepting her, I can’t scoff hard enough at that. I loved Robin Williams, but he was one of several who ended up marrying his former nanny. If women in Hwood were smart, they’d only hire unpleasant looking people.

  48. Aren says:

    Oh please, Gisele is not going to do anything. The nanny just took a pic with Tom’s trophies, that doesn’t mean they’re having sex!
    I’m sure he was all like “Oh, I had completely forgotten I had them with me” and casually showing them around to get attention. Knowing how celebrities behave, he probably pulls that number all the time, hence why he always travels with those rings.

  49. ann says:

    Have you ever thought that this nanny really had something special about her. That maybe she was so sweet, so understanding, so fun, so beautiful, so sexy that most men couldn’t resist her? I think that’s what she wants us all to know. She is more captivating than most famous actresses and models. This girl is on fire!

    • littlestar says:

      Ummmm….. NO.

    • db says:

      Far as I can see, Nanny is ordinary (and that’s not a knock on her btw). That’s her appeal. I would reckon *most* of his dalliances involve women who are civilians, one way or the other.

    • Christin says:

      Sounds like a character outline for his next project – Delusions of a Rebound Fling Gone Wrong.

    • Heather says:

      The nanny is utterly ordinary. Basic. That is what I first thought when I saw her – J Lo and Jennifer Garner are SO MUCH prettier than her. WHAT in the world are men thinking?!?!?!? It is not about beauty, it is about availability.

      • Neah23 says:

        Yes the nanny is ordinary looking but so is Jennifer Garner and Goop. To me JLO is the only Pretty one.

    • belle de jour says:

      Igne nannytura renovatur integra. Thank you for the much-appreciated laugh. :)

      I have a feeling we’re in for more installments from where these inner delusional monologues originated.

    • laura in LA says:

      Oh hey Christine

    • Jayna says:

      She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire
      Hotter than a fantasy, longer like a highway
      She’s living in a world, and it’s on fire
      Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away
      Oh, she got both feet on the ground
      And she’s burning it down
      Oh, she got her head in the clouds
      And she’s not backing down

  50. PHD gossip says:

    Consensus will soon form that Nanny Christine is a high priced hooker.
    She is way too adept at blackmailing Ben and now Tom Brady is in the picture!

    • laura in LA says:

      No way. High-priced escorts are discreet, why they get paid so well – and stay discreet. This chick’s nothing but an amateur fame-ho and Hollywood bottom-feeder.

  51. Frivolity says:

    Don’t know when or if this nanny started an affair with Affleck (or vice versa).
    Don’t know if Tom Brady knew, condoned it, or “told on” Affleck to Giselle.
    What I think is that Affleck’s infidelities were an open secret in Hollywood. I recalled an article describing the Affleck-Garner marriage as like in “Mad Men”
    (and I found it for you: http://www.peoplestylewatch.com/people/stylewatch/package/article/0,,20658247_20673514,00.html)
    While the “source” making that comparison made it sound innocent enough, I think it was a veiled reference to Ben being a cheater. After all, the infidelity of Don Draper and his cohorts was a huge theme in Mad Men – it was not just about traditional gender roles. (Otherwise, the source may have simply referenced the 1950′s.)

  52. phlyfiremama says:

    The real question is, WHO TOOK THE PICTURE? It wasn’t a selfie, SOMEONE else took it. Brady is no innocent in this situation~ethically, as soon as he figured out what was going on, he should have jetted. Oh, That’s right, he has already SHOWN repeatedly that he doesn’t HAVE ethics. There was some serious hanky panky, and he was in on it, and maybe BRADY is the one with a lot to lose just as much as Affleck~Brady might be footing the bill!

    • Kitten says:

      LOL!!

      A photo of Affleck’s nanny wearing Brady’s SB rings = Brady cheated on Giselle with Affleck’s nanny

      No evidence whatsoever of Brady deflating one football = Brady has no integrity and definitely cheated

      Yeah that sounds about right.

      • phlyfiremama says:

        My point is, that EVERYONE already knew Affleck/Garner were on the rocks already, but there hasn’t been a PEEP of any kind out of the Brady/Bundchen camp. Now pictures of Ben’s hooker (let’s call a spade a spade, ok!?} wearing Tom’s SB rings….something ain’t right. At this point, Brady has a LOT more to lose than Affleck: further public image degradation, pal-ing atound while his wife is gone with a known cheater, drug addict, and liar on a private plane going to Vegas, and now his wife~and the whole world~know all about it. Oops. Now his “perfect” world is exposed as what it really is: lies and deception, on and off the playing field.

    • Jayna says:

      Brady has worked in professional football for a long time now. A huge percentage, huge, of professional athletes cheat. I’m not saying he cheats on Giselle. I’m saying he’s around it and has been for years. It’s nothing shocking.

      if he and Ben are close, then he knows Ben’s marriage is ending and they are divorcing. He probably has known that marriage was going down quite a while back. He may be surprised by the nanny on the trip, but then there were others there also. He figured it out, I’m sure. But it’s not his business is the way he looks at it.

  53. Cinderella says:

    A tabloid could be footing her bill if Ben isn’t.

    I also have a feeling TB misbehaved on this trip. Not with the nanny. It could have been with someone more discreet.

    • Jayna says:

      Giselle is a spitfire. I think Tom stays faithful because he’s afraid of what will happen if she finds out. It’s not worth it. He’s crazy about her, and she would be a holy terror if she ever caught him up to no good. He wouldn’t have deflated balls. His balls would be gone.

  54. Lesa says:

    Guys are not going to tell off on their buddy. Especially when you get in the rich, elite circles. In fact, they will usually lie for them. These super power couples have to have a very difficult time maintaining a marriage. They are rarely together. My real question is why do these women hire young attractive live in help and leave town expecting nothing to happen in these situations?

  55. LAK says:

    She’s not a poor nanny that’s for sure. Or she has a high paying job on the side or she comes from wealth. Why do I say this? In the private jet photo from page six, she’s wearing a cartier ‘love’ bracelet. Those things retail for £4K which is approx $6K. Gift or personal purchase?

  56. The Original Original says:

    Im sorry but are there a lot more insecure women out there than I thought? Am I the only one who thinks a marriage is built on friendship and trust and that the Bradys discussed Bens folly after the trip and that was that?
    To hear these comments is very unsettling. Im not saying anyone is wrong for how they feel… Im just saying I would never be so suspicious and untrusting of someone I chose to partner with.

  57. JoJo says:

    The constantly-changing timelines and narratives are the best.

    When they first announced their split on 6/30, People mag said – they went to the Bahamas to announce their divorce as a family, protected and under cover, away from the media glare. (Seems like a message jointly pushed by Ben and Jen.)

    Last week, with nanny-gate exploding, People (and others) seemed to change it to – they went to the Bahamas for a family vacation. It was make or break time. They were going to discuss the future of their relationship there. But when Jen found out about Vegas, it was the final straw in an already-troubled marriage/separation and they announced their split three days later. (Seems like a new message pushed by Jen’s camp?)

    Now, today, with the Brady story, it has changed again. According to this new E! story this afternoon, “The divorce announcement was always in the works, says the insider, and it was just a coincidence that the Vegas trip happened right before the announcement. Vegas trip or not, they were going to be announcing their split.” (Back to original message once again – Ben’s camp?)

    http://www.eonline.com/news/685254/jennifer-garner-fired-nanny-after-ben-affleck-took-her-to-las-vegas-with-tom-brady

    • Christin says:

      These changing timelines are what makes it difficult to believe any scenario. I think both camps realize the Vegas trip is a critical piece of this puzzle, as is whether BOTH parties were ready to throw in the towel (long) before the Bahamas.

      I’m not convinced he and nanny had a full-blown affair as she implies. He was careless to ferry her around, let her hang around after the alleged firing, etc. But, he could have been trying to override Jen by viewing her as “his” employee (since many of us assume he was the link between NPH, her alleged previous employer, and the Affleck household). He might have paid her to be his personal assistant / “fun girl” (drinking buddy) for a couple of weeks and given her a hefty severance, who knows. But it does look very fishy when she’s holed up at the same hotel he supposedly frequents.

    • Diane says:

      I think that the original “PR game plan” was to put the divorce out there as mutual, amicable and family-friend, etc. and not mention any specific events as a cause. According to the later People article, once the Nanny photos emerged in later July, that “PR game plan” took a turn and it appears that Jennifer (through sources) decided that in order to let us know that she was most definitely influenced by the Nanny affair (which was originally going to stay quiet) in the July 30 announcement. Who knows what the real story is. I have NO doubt that the Nanny affair and Jen learning about it in the Bahamas would have been a major done, over, no going back, but was the marriage in all reality already there? Who knows? It kinda explains her body language in the photos that were staged/released. You can see the anger rolling off of her in those. Also, another note here. June 29th was their 10th anniversary. Ben spent the weekend before that anniversary enjoying the company of the Nanny and returned to his wife and family afterward. Separated or not, 10 YEAR anniversary and he is spending the weekend with another woman. That just speaks volumes as to his apparent complete and utter disrespect for Jen as a person. That’s just huge. There is really no excusing that kind of disrespect for your wife/mother of children. No nagging in the world can reach that level of ugly. My thoughts and opinions…

      • Jayna says:

        The marriage was already done. He had his ring off in Canada months before. He didn’t come home for her birthday. Mother’s Day they spent apart. They had been in marital therapy for over a year. He had been living at the Hotel Bel-Air off and on for many months. His miserable pap walk when all the rumors came out they were divorcing was him saying I don’t want to play this game. Quite a few moving vans at the house, more than would be needed for just the rooms she’s redoing. Jen redoing the bedroom is kind of symbolic also. Then they go to the Bahamas.

        I don’t know if the plan was really to announce it in the Bahamas or that just was the catalyst for Jen to throw in the towel big time and end it because of nannygate. I have a feeling it was going to be announced because there was nothing left to work on. Ben wanted out nanny or no nanny.

      • JoJo says:

        @Jayna – I tend to agree with your view of the whole thing. I also agree with @Christin that the timeline – particularly the Vegas weekend – seems to be important to both parties in trying to influence the narrative around the split – i.e. when the nanny affair went public, it seems Jen’s camp wanted to put it out there that she wasn’t necessarily ready to throw in the towel in the Bahamas, but that the nanny affair sealed the deal, whereas Ben’s camp (at least now, post nanny-gate) seems to be pushing the idea that they were always planning to announce the divorce in the Bahamas, nanny-gate or not, as you said Jayna. Jen’s version seems designed to get the sympathy vote – she was still willing to make it work if it wasn’t for the nanny! While Ben’s version tries to minimize nanny-gate by saying the nanny had nothing to do with their already-planned intent to divorce.

    • Luca76 says:

      I mean does it make it any less creepy and gross that he banged the nanny because it wasn’t technically cheating???i never thought the nanny caused the break up but that no excuse for what Ben did.

  58. lisa2 says:

    Just curious.. If Ben took the Nanny to Vegas and Jennifer was not there; then who was taking care of the kids. Did they have another Nanny and where is she; and why didn’t she go with Ben and the other nanny and take the kids.

    • lisa2 says:

      OK. reading post I see that the nanny and Ben went to Vegas after Jennifer arrived.

    • JoJo says:

      @Lisa2 – Jen and Ben and the kids were all in the Bahamas when Ben left for the weekend to go to Vegas. He then returned to the Bahamas where Jen and the kids still were, after the Vegas weekend.

  59. Elise says:

    She HAS to have signed a confidentiality agreement to work for Ben and Jen, so if she really is thinking of doing a tell-all, she will no doubt get sued. My guess is that Ben’s lawyers have given her a stern warning, but he is treating her to a vacay to help stave off her going public.

    I believe this is why this dudes get with their not-so-attractive to attractive nannies – b/c they think they won’t talk b/c of the confidentiality agreements. See Jude Law…

    • Neah23 says:

      Not really if she doesn’t mention anything about the kids or Ben and Jen personal business then she free to take about her none work related relationship with Ben.

  60. Dinah says:

    I thought I was going to read about Ben, but I got Brady instead. I missed the wrong ferry, sorry.

  61. laura in LA says:

    Um, you know, it wasn’t just the three of them on this flight as there were assistants and others accompanying them and working the event who, by the way, may also have taken photos with the rings?

    They’re just not tacky or desperate enough to post them anywhere publicly, and perhaps they like their jobs, their bosses and have a healthy respect for privacy.

    All this speculation here is nonsense, and I can’t believe everyone is letting their imaginations run away with them based on a couple of setup photos of the nanny herself.

    There, I said it.

    And I’ll eat my words later if I’m *proven* wrong, but even tabloid and entertainment media like E! are pretty skeptical of this chick.

    Here’s my theory: Nothing ever happened with the nanny, at least not as far as Ben remembers, because after the tournament, maybe he took some painkillers/sleeping pills, and now she probably claims to have some compromising photos of him.

    Whaddya got, nanny fame-ho? Because your 15 mins are (thankfully) almost up!

    Ben’s team is probably just waiting to see what she has, if anything, and to get her when she releases or tries to sell them, but whatever her end game is here, she’s showed her hand already – and played this all wrong.

    He’s skilled at poker, so I say, call her bluff.

    • Neah23 says:

      Really that’s the best you can come up with, I mean really the only thing that is nonsense is that you will not face the fact that Ben had a sexual relationship with the nanny. You seem to be the one letting your imaginations run away with you based off of nothing, saying that you believe the nanny took advantage of him while unconscious.😱😱😱😱😱😨😨😨😩😩😩😩😩

      • laura in LA says:

        Is that really the best YOU can come up with, Neah23?

        Because as usual, your post says nothing about this situation – but it says a whole lot about how annoying you are as a person and from what I’ve seen on these threads.

        Believe what you want to believe, but none of us *know* anything about what really happened here.

        That YOU actually think you do, Neah23, makes you as delusional and disordered as the nanny-ho!

      • laura in LA says:

        Oh, by the way, Neah23, your boy Chris Pratt is rumored to be cheating on Anna Faris…

        But since he’s a jerk anyway, and she looks skinny and worn out in recent photos, then I guess it must be true!

  62. LeAnn Stinks says:

    On a tangent, that director resembles that fictitious character “Slender Man,” who has been in the headlines because of all the nutty people trying to kill others to honor him. Maybe he is the real “Slender Man?” (cue to creepy music) LOL!!!

    • Tara says:

      Omg he does! And I don’t mean that in a disparaging way. He looks interesting, and I hope he’s doing ok with his movie despite the amplified tabloid focus on Ben.

  63. Jayna says:

    Gawker has some funny posts on their latest story on Nannygate. This comment is brilliant.

    “Maybe she got the job from one of those unbelievably badly written Craigslist ads where they list all the responsibilities of the job and your eyes just widen in horror at their expectations:

    Duties include: Dressing and feeding the children. Taking them to soccer. Preparing snacks. Taking in lipstick stained dress-shirts to the dry-cleaners. Quick handies in the cabana while wife is on the beach. Flights to Vegas with assorted friends. Distract dealer while employer counts cards. Stay in employer’s hotel room (pjs optional, bjs are not)…Be discreet. Don’t call paps. Be cool.”

  64. Emily C. says:

    I don’t think this woman’s either crazy or dumb. She saw Ben and she saw dollar signs. Look at how much he’s paying already. And I hope she keeps soaking him — he was the one who was really, really, REALLY dumb about this. I don’t expect anyone in Hollywood to be faithful (men or women), but don’t crap where you eat.

  65. mommy 2b says:

    Maybe they have been seperated for a while and Jennifer was trying to save face by dragging out the facade. She was forced to go public after Ben told the nanny to help him speed things along. Jen seems like the type to use guilt to keep a relationship going. I do feel sorry for her but the relationship seems to have been over for awhile.

  66. wow says:

    Yep; definitely this years version of Rachel Uchitel.

  67. qtpi says:

    Hey Ben.

    Next why don’t you play a brand new superhero – Captain Dbag. No acting necessary.

    Ugggh….I can’t with the Tom Brady….I’ve known that man since highschool…a douche…I went to prom with one of his bro friends and we all shared a limo…would not speak to me once he found out I went to the one school that beat his. His uncle was also my beloved principal and the asshat didn’t go to his funeral. He went to Giselle’s VS show instead. There is picture proof. GIselle, Tom, Ben, Nanny, everyone deserves each other in this whole scum.my mess. Except Jennifer. And Bridget. And the kids. Everyone else can suck it

    • No says:

      You “know”… No, you WANTED TO know him.
      “He went to Giselle’s VS show instead.” It’s impossible.

  69. Jccw says:

    NYDaily News now reporting the nanny has a pic of her new Lexus. Oy! Hope Ben gives his PR team an early Xmas bonus, not that they are any good, but they must be putting in the overtime hours.

    • Jayna says:

      Well, she’s got money from all all the photos and stories. Just reading her caption to the photo of her and the car is like reading some shallow high-schooler posting, bragging to friends.

      “Keep calm and meet my new drop top Lexi,” she wrote on the pic.

  70. Mrs Darcy says:

    Interesting images of the women here…how do people here know Giselle is a spitfire and Tom is afraid of her? Not sarcasm, I am curious :)

    • Tara says:

      Wondering same thing.

      He’s not afraid of her generally. He would be afraid of her reaction if he cheated and it wouldn’t be pretty. She has an emotional, excitable personality. Any interviews you can see that. She’s passionate about what she believes in, opinionated, talks a million miles a minute, has been known to stick her foot in her mouth because she just blurts out what she thinks.

      Her reaction at one of her husband’s games where she is so mad on video she lashes out at his teammates afterwards is why I call her a spitfire.

      “My husband can not f—— throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times,” Bundchen said.

    Now, the nanny is posting pics of her brand new Lexus convertible. If not Ben, where is she getting the $ for all of this. If it’s ‘hush $’, she obviously wants to make it known she’s being bankrolled.

    I feel like Ben Affleck is getting everything he deserves if only for the crime of being the biggest f*cking idiot in Hollywood.

    My theory… If it’s true that he’s an opiate addict, it totally makes sense that he would be careless with his affair, and pay for her to stay at the hotel even though she isn’t keeping her mouth shut. If you take them daily, they give you a superhuman ability to not give a sh*t, even when you are not high. You can be totally functional and productive, but your emotions are numbed, so you stop caring about such earthly things as consequences, other people’s feelings, and whether or not your life is heading for the gutter.

    People used to always comment on how bored and distant he looked with this wife, but really, he ALWAYS looks like that. Even in these photos, where you’d think he would be stressed and anxious as hell, or at very least not totally comfortable. Opiates relax your facial muscles, so you always look tired, bored, or not quite “there”. His face in these photos just screams “opiate addict”.
