Ben Affleck claims nanny came to help at poker tournament; she has a new Lexus

In yesterday’s post about Ben Affleck’s nanny running up a $12k hotel bill I tacked a story onto the end from Page Six. The Post had obtained a photo of the nanny, Christine Ouzounian, sitting in a private jet and sporting Tom Brady’s four Superbowl rings. Apparently when the nanny took Affleck’s private jet with him from The Bahamas to Vegas, Brady was along for the ride. They were going to Vegas to attend a charity poker match that Ben was organizing. Ouzounian had been sent home from the Bahamas by Jennifer Garner, who told her that she was being too emotional to care for their children. Ouzounian was emotional because she had just spent five days boning Garner’s husband before Garner arrived. When Garner later found out that Ouzounian didn’t go home on Affleck’s jet and instead spent four days with him in Vegas she sh*tcanned Ouzounian and announced her divorce. (I think she didn’t expect the nanny news to go public but once it did she dealt with it.)

Anyway you guys probably know all that as we covered the People magazine story with those details, but they’re interesting background. After Page Six ran that photo, People had some damage control from Affleck and Brady’s camp. Apparently other people on the plane were also wearing Brady’s Superbowl rings (were they in his luggage and did he pass them around? I don’t get it) and Ouzounian went to Vegas to help out at Affleck’s poker tournament. Sure she did.

The Post’s new report says Affleck kept Ouzounian hidden during the Vegas trip, but a friend of Affleck – who has denied any affair took place – says that isn’t true.

“They were headed to his poker tournament for his charity,” the friend says of why Ouzounian left the Bahamas with Affleck. “She was in no way hidden. She was in fact helpful in encouraging donations, and there were other Affleck employees with him. If this was supposed to be some romantic getaway, this was not it. Ben was there to focus on his charities.”

Affleck’s friend adds that “there were other people on the plane who tried on the rings.” After the tournament, Affleck returned solo to rejoin Garner in the Bahamas, where they announced their divorce on June 30.

Affleck, a Boston native, has been friends with Brady, 38, for years. There is no suggestion that anything untoward happened between Ouzounian and Brady, who has been married to supermodel Gisele Bündchen since 2009.

[From People]

Page Six has more of a detailed denial from Affleck. It’s worth reading in its entirety but the gist is that he’s claiming it wasn’t an intimate trip. “There were many other people on the plane, including other assistants and staff working for Ben who were helping with the event, and many of these also tried on Tom’s Super Bowl rings and took photos.” Let’s see the pics then. That would be the quickest way to shut this down. It would also help out Brady, although I don’t think this reflects too poorly on Brady.

What’s interesting to me is the fact that the nanny leaked this photo to Page Six. She obviously did that, because Page Six has been running stories about how awesome she is. The fact that this photo is out suggests that Ben is backing away from the crazy and she’s amping it up. Does she have compromising photos of him as we’ve heard?

The nanny’s Instagram is private but someone in the press has access to it because she just posted photos of her new car, a convertible Lexus. Entertainment Tonight ran the story and you can see the pic there. She captioned the photo “Keep calm and meet my new drop top Lexi.” Shame. Less. That car retails for around $43,000. She’s going to blow all the money Ben gives her.

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaahaha hahahahahahahaahaha *deep breath* hahahahahahaha ha.

    She’s never gonna stop. She has to be pregnant, no? Because otherwise, why is he still doing this? Downpayment for an abortion, I guarantee it.

    • Bluebell says:

      If he got her pregnant (which I hope not), then he deserves to be made to pay. To pay everything. I hate men who go around getting casual flings pregnant and think they can just pay it off and it all goes away. Because getting a termination can be (not always) an emotionally traumatic thing for a woman. It’s just NOT the same for a guy.

      Gosh, this makes me so mad. Poor Jen and the children. Even poor Christine, a little bit. Okay it looks like she’s flaunting it a little bit but she’s in her twenties and probably is genuinely starstruck by Ben. He’s the fully grown forty-odd man with a couple of children who should know better.

    • Tate says:

      She has to have something on him. Otherwise he would ignore her and she would go away. Instead it seems he is giving her money. I don’t know about a pregnancy but maybe some pictures that he doesn’t want out there???

      • Chichi says:

        I think its one of three options.
        1) Full blown sex on tape visible wedding ring and all.
        2) If its just pics then something really damaging like kissing, cuddling in the presence of his children.
        3) If there are pics or vid of drug stuff then it has to be infront of the kids to be truly damaging. Anything less is easily fixed with a public stint in rehab.

      • minx says:

        Chichi, I agree.

      • justagirl says:

        Still, none of Chichi’s options seem worth much anxiety. Maybe they knew each other before she was hired as a nanny…? Pics that support that would definitely cause anxiety.

      • kcarp says:


        I hadn’t thought of rehab. A trip to rehab is probably in the cards. It will be said that he is in rehab for maintenance issues and to ensure he is in top form for his kids who he loves so much he bangs their nanny.

      • kibbles says:

        This is the guy who didn’t want the fact that he had slave owning ancestors exposed to the public. What the nanny has on Affleck could be anything, but he wants to be so in control of his image that anything that he’d want anything that confirms an affair (kissing, sex, or even hugging) or drugs to never come out into the open.

      • Rebecca says:

        I think the only thing this Ozounian woman has on him is the threat of revealing the affair. If the affair is confirmed, then he is a cheater and a liar. Not only did he lie to Garner, but he made a statement to the press that he never had an affair with his nanny. This will affect his “bottom line.” Women may stop going to see his movies and he could lose out on roles.

        Perhaps it was Jennifer Garner who paid off the nanny to be quiet. Maybe she was trying to protect her children from having to live with the fact that their father slept with their nanny and now it is a public story everyone knows.

      • Fluff says:

        Maybe he’s genuinely into her. Lots of middle-aged guys get weird obsessions with awful younger women. Or maybe he’s using her to hurt his wife.

      • Ally8 says:

        I love that he gave interviews about how the whole J.Lo phase was so embarrassing, but now here he is. It’s budget Ouzounian from the block, flaunting her hotel stay and her upper middle class ride.

        This is your natural level, Affleck, don’t fight it.

        To quote Gwyneth, I’m sure she’s great at bringing poolside beers. She can hang out there with Ben and that other sophisticate Kevin Smith.

    • Mia4S says:

      Could be pregnancy but I’m not getting that vibe. She’s either got something on him…or he’s actually smitten with her.

      If it’s the latter it’s time for a serious intervention; Damon where are you?? 😉

      Seriously though it’s something or why keep paying? No one believes there wasn’t an affair. Let her do her episode of Dr. Phil and get it over with!

      • Wren says:

        I don’t think so either, I think she’d be playing up that angle if were true, and abortions aren’t *that* expensive. Not $12k hotels and new car expensive.

        I think she knows something, something Ben feels (rightly or wrongly) will ruin him, though I’m having a hard time figuring out just what that may be at this point. He’s already a cheating skuzzball, if it’s drugs or something the PR answer is rehab and a couple remorseful interviews. And if it’s that super shady and awful, I’d expect her to “disappear” instead of everything short of waving at the paps from her new car.

      • SnarkySnarkers says:

        Maybe he already gave her a lump sum amount of money and shes just showing off all the fancy crap shes buying/doing to keep her 15 minutes going? If hes still paying her hes crazy because its clearly not working.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Maybe group sex on video or pics; or sex AND drugs on video or pics.

      • Original T.C. says:

        The group or tag team sex tape is a possibility or a choking/degrading sex tape or BDSM.

        Alternatively, the worse could be a loved up video of Ben with the nanny on his lap as he confesses that he only agreed to marry Garner because she was pregnant and that it was a mutual agreement that she will be used to clean up his public image while behind the scenes he can do whatever he wants. A loveless fake marriage?

      • Miss Melissa says:


        Hate to say it, but it seems more and more like the jump off may actually be the new woman.

        They deserve each other.

        And if she’s flying to Vegas with him and his friends, chances are she’s not the first girlfriend to have done so.

        We knew he was a cheater, but this GF is the one who is talking and I’m not sure he cares. If he did, I think he would have shut it down by now instead of paying her hotel bill while she waives to the paps.

      • Dee says:

        Lainey did have a blind item indicating that he is hooked on heroin.

      • Jag says:

        Perhaps Ben isn’t lying that he is paying for everything because it’s actually one of the other married men who was at the tournament paying for her things. Perhaps they all had a tryst and there’s photographic or video evidence, and Ben is taking the fall so that his friend doesn’t have to go through a divorce, too.

        Just speculation, of course.

    • Alex says:

      If she was we would know soon. This nanny would exploit a baby for everything it’s worth. My guess is Ben cut her a six figure check that she’s blowing through currently. Not only that but I’m going to guess the money train is going to dry up because Ben is losing more and more positive press with each “leaked” photo. Plus Ben you really expect us to believe you brought the nanny without your kids? Ok then
      This girl doesn’t know the game she’s playing. I would not want to be on the wrong side of Giselle…she seems like she would cut a b**ch.

    • Christin says:

      If he confesses to an affair, would it potentially impact the settlement (if they file for divorce)?

      Maybe he views it as a smaller payout than potentially having Jen play hardball with his millions.

      If he isn’t bankrolling nanny, then why not issue a clear statement (not say it’s not his credit card number at the hotel, which was dumb to say).

      • Alex says:

        If Jen wants to play hardball then yes. If not then no. Either way he probably gave Jen more money than expected to keep her quiet as well

    • Megan says:

      I am guessing the car is rented. It’s the fame whore way of going Fatal Attraction.

      • doofus says:

        or leased.

      • SnarkySnarkers says:

        Ooh! Maybe shes doing this stuff to get to Jen too? Like if she did just rent the car she thinks Jen will see it and assume Ben bought it for her or something? Idk, I’m just trying to get into this chicks head because it seems like Disneyland in there lol.

      • SillySimone says:

        I am wondering if she is blackmailing him and what it could be for. The more I think about it, the more I keep finding this unlikely. We know he is a cheater. We know he is an addict. Even if she has photos of him doing drugs, so what? He goes to rehab and comes out all clean again, like they all do. I can’t figure where she would hide a camera that could get the types of shots she needs in any case. I also can’t understand that if this indeed blackmail, why he simply does not go to the authorities? Even extortion is a crime across the land.

        The only possible explanation I have is that maybe the tabloids are hosting her at the hotel and renting her a car in exchange for a bunch of stories that have various pictures that may or may not prove anything (like the flight to Vegas). The tabs can buy the photos and her “sources” stuff and spin whatever they want. How much would they pay for this much story? I am betting enough for a hotel and a rented car?

        Otherwise, I just have no idea how this could be him being blackmailed. An affair, possible drugs? In Hollywood? Really shocking!!! Not!

      • skedaddle says:

        Or she bought it with the money she’s getting from these leaks. Or she already had they money—I read somewhere that she does come from money. Or he bought it for her awhile ago and she’s pushing it like it’s recent? I just find it hard to believe he’d buy it for her now. Like, he’s dumb but he can’t be….that dumb….can he…??

      • Shannon says:

        I think so too! I think she wants us to believe she’s flush wish cash because she thinks she’s “building her brand” and wants to get enough interest to become a minor celeb and be on Reality TV shows or catch the attention of a new boyfriend to bankroll her lifestyle.

    • Stephanie says:

      If she was pregnant, I bet she would be gingerly touching her belly in photos.

    • Mimz says:

      You beat me to it. I was going to post the exact same thing.
      I can’t deal with this BS it’s too much. Is someone trolling us?

    • LA Juice says:

      I love that you only refer to her as the nanny.

    • SillySimone says:

      1. She is coming out of this looking not only a fool, but a greedy one. Who is ever going to date this idiot again? She deserves all the hostility floating her way.

      2. I don’t think she is pregnant. But I do think she is blackmailing him, which begs the question, why not involve the authorities? David Letterman style!

      3. Where the hell are her parents? She is acting like a 15 year old stalker. She needs supervision.

  2. LAK says:

    I’m going to ask it again. Are these gifts from Ben? she had a huge nanny salary? has wealthy parents or REALLY generous benefactors (cough)?…….. because in that picture from the jet, she’s wearing a cartier ‘love’ bracelet. The very basic model she’s wearing retails for $6,000.

    • mimif says:

      Maybe she’s born with it…

      I haven’t been following this story too much, but has anyone postulated that maybe Ben is into her? He might as well be, because dude is f-cked.

      • QQ says:


        The dude is Clearly Comping Her so?? Maybe he just want Nanny Crazy Strange

        Also Btw??: Only Tournament she was Helping In Was in His Pants

      • Chichi says:

        Its entirely possible that Ben (subconsciously) likes the idea of playing with fire. Maybe his next mission impossible is to wife an unhinged gold digger. And I dont mean any of this sarcastically. It would explain the cartier bracelet she had on on the private jet. It would explain why she keeps saying they talk everyday and infact have special phones devoted to that. It would explain why a man trying to distance himself would put her up at his favorite hotel (this one has seriously puzzled me for awhile). It would explain why she has dropped two, albeit minor, pieces of evidence since Ben was snapped with,Jen and the kids. Ben is seriously stupid enough as well as sufficiently self sabotaging, to really think theres a future here.

        This has got to be the most puzzling gossip story I have ever seen.

      • paola says:

        At this point Jennifer must feel so relieved that she got rid of such a ginormous asshole.
        If I was her I’d wish them to stay together forever. They’re douches of a feather. Better together than ruin other people’s lives.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Paola – Jen hasn’t really gotten rid of him yet. I will believe it once the divorce is final and they no longer reside together.

      • Cindy says:

        “Maybe he’s into her”
        Yeah, that’s what I’m starting to wonder. If he does officially have a relationship with her after the divorce, maybe they deserve each other. Seriously. Kinda like Leann and Edie deserve one another. It could work. Especially if Garner got full custody of their kids.

      • stinky says:

        QQ: lol!

    • Celebitchy says:

      I almost wrote that (you said that yesterday I think?) but I looked on Etsy and there are cheap replicas. Now that she’s bought a Lexus it’s probably real.

      • Dani says:

        She could have just leased the Lexus. It’s not entirely cheaper but they run around $400 a month and have like 28/29 month leases.

      • Miller621 says:

        @Dani I agree she could have leased it. We recently bought a new car is around the same price as that Lexus. My husband has a copy cat friend who ran out to get one once he saw ours, he couldn’t afford it but was able to lease one for less than what our monthly payment is. Dude is broke but keeps spending like he’s not and racking up more debt. When he can’t afford the lease payment anymore he’ll just turn it in and get something else and act like he was over the vehicle and wanted something new.

        Now I am definitely thinking she has something on Ben. What I don’t understand is if she does she should take hush money and go away, but she’s making it worse for herself and Ben. She’s definitely crazy! To the article, if she was there to help Ben than Jen would have known about it.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Miller – that’s the point; she prob doesn’t see it as enough hush money and this is her way of extorting him for more. No telling what else she has on him that’s yet to come out. The only way he could get her to shut up is if she had signed some legal docs/iron-clad NDAs tied to the hush money. Butttttt….apparently that’s not what happened with the way she keeps running her mouth and spending money like it’s going out of style.

      • SNAP says:

        A lot of posts have mentioned how well the nanny seems to have planned it…but it all seems way too convenient. Who is getting a direct benefit from his scandal? It’s almost like a grand finale, the one whose reputation looks the shiniest may be the brains behind it all …what if Garner orchestrated the whole nanny-gate plot??? She had to have known Affleck would bang anything with a skirt on it, so to get rid of him easily while keeping her reputation intact, dangle the nanny carrot and then let it all explode on him…it just seems awful convenient, you know? What if Garner is like the character in the Gone Girl movie? Conniving, calculating, smartly vengeful and the nanny is the perfect accessory, for the right amount and 15 minutes of fame whoring she could help bring a douche down. What if the nanny is using money Garner paid her specifically to keep making Doucheffleck look worse and worse. Payback for 10 years of misery…huh…hell hath no fury like an ex-wife scorned…IF (and this is a huge if) so, well played Garner, well played. I gotta get me some notes on how to pull an Alfred Hitchcock like outcome. 😉

      • SillySimone says:

        Is it possible she is a call girl with the cover of a nanny? Now THAT would be a huge scandal. Could she have been servicing both man-child and deflatore?

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      To add to the questions, how bad will this have to get before Warner shuts it down to avoid anymore bad publicity before Batman Vs Superman.

      • FingerBinger says:

        The film has a 2016 release date. This story won’t be a factor.

      • mimif says:

        Good point. Girl better bring her A-game because as we know, the studios do not mess around.

      • Original T.C. says:


        I didn’t see your post before writing mine but I don’t think Warner Brothers is concerned. I checked out some comic book and fanboy websites (not all obviously) and I say nothing about Ben’s cheating story. The fanboys are super excited because there is more and more promo being leaked by Warner about how much work Ben put in to researching his character and how much he cares about Batman. That’s all the fans care about. He can be a male prostitute and these guys would be like ‘who cares about his private life’. Boyfriends and husbands will still drag their female partners to see Ben’s comic book films or they will go with their buddies. Because their childhood memories are so wrapped up in Batman, Spider-Man, etc.

        This story is of interest to us women and his women fans who believed in him. If Ben does a romantic movie which depends on the female audience, it will suffer at the box-office.

    • Talie says:

      It’s possible she is borrowing these items for pictures, like most people do, just to stoke the fire. But I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was the one buying this crap to keep her quiet. She must have pics of him kissing her or something.

    • Kiddo says:

      @LAK, The ‘charity’ is Christine Ouzounian, and she was ‘workin’ it’.

    • Sayrah says:

      So, she was paid for “services” she provided Ben Affleck under the guise of being a nanny to his kids. I’m not against legalizing prostitution myself but let’s call this what it is.

    • Daria Morgendorffer says:

      @mimif – It seems to me like Ben is definitely into her. He is keeping her around and she feels the right to be vocal because she has his support behind closed doors and is seeing him. There are pictures of her showing up at his house gifting him champagne after the divorce was announced and he looks happy as can be to see her but gives the paps a death stare. She might be getting money by selling her story to the media as a source, granted I don’t think it would be much, but maybe enough to drop a small down payment on a Lexus and buy herself a Cartier bracelet, unless that was a gift from Ben. Either way, I think she’s his girlfriend and maybe he is only denying it and trying to play it cool because he’s afraid it’ll hurt his career.

    • MichLynn says:

      Or she could’ve bought a used one on Ebay for $500.

      • JR says:

        This. Or she could be racking up credit card debt. Unfortunately, I know quite a few women in their 20s and 30s here in NYC who are always decked out in designer gear, but they can’t actually afford it.

  3. kri says:

    Damn. Ben Affleck is a total idiot, and I don’t think this story is close to being over. Tbh, it seems like this girl planned for this. She played him perfectly. What a fool.

    • Bichon says:

      He is, really really is. He must be a dim bulb because the girl seems even dimmer.

    • mimif says:

      I know, are we watching a Lifetime movie, or what? The only way this could get worse for Ben at this point (barring a pregnancy) is if she had pics of him drowning kittens.

      • MsGoblin says:

        Bwahahahahahah, Mimif! Love it.

      • Sumodo1 says:

        Pass the peach tree schnapps and popcorn, because this is a Lifetime extravaganza!

      • Snazzy says:

        ha ha ha yup this is pretty amazing.

      • QQ says:

        Consider This: She Probably does Have said Pics and also Is Pregnant and Also Is Glenn Closeish and also has a sex Tape with Affleck In Full batman Costume and a Story about being Tag teamed by Affleck and Brady and a Book Deal On How to Be shameless, all Im saying Is This could continue to be a good Thing for us all* if we let her keep leaking

        * Except Ben Affleck and his wallet

      • chaine says:

        There will be a Lifetime movie of this in 40 years, with the future’s equivalent of Lindsay Lohan playing Christine.

      • MinnFinn says:

        QQ – ‘Tag team’ caused me to realize that gig in Vegas was a BA style ‘poke her’ trip,

    • Krista says:

      Oh yes. She’s taking him for a ride over and over again.

    • ladyg says:

      If I were a mystery writer, the plot twist at the end would be that Jennifer Garner orchestrated this whole thing, and she and the nanny have been planning this together — Kinda like that movie with channing tatum and Catherine Zeta Jones, Side Effects.

      • V4Real says:

        Oh, I like movies where the wife orchestrated the whole thing. Like Halle Berry in “The Rich Man’s Wife.”

      • Wren says:

        I honestly jotted down a little short story where this exact thing happened, because it would be so delicious.

      • Holycow says:

        I would not put it past Garner to be behind this whole thing. People underestimate a woman scorned and that woman has been scorned for years but stood by her man. He probably said he finally wanted out and the gloves are off now! How would we know any better? And why else would he still be wearing his ‘ring’? Appears like a control tactic to me.

      • Megan says:

        @ladyg – Yes, I was thinking that would be the ultimate conspiracy.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      When they announced their divorce I knew there would be some good sh!t coming out (truly sorry for that pun). Wow, did he FAR exceed my expectations!!! And you KNOW there’s gonna be more to come. Stoo-pid!

      • Esmom says:

        Yeah, who would have guessed? I feel like the PBS fiasco — which now seems like a million years ago — was just a tiny hint of the real drama to come.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        It really does pale in comparison! Lol

      • Jen43 says:

        He is so controlling that this must be driving him batsh*t crazy. There is no good way to spin this no matter how hard he tries. It is impossible.

        Didn’t we all know this was going to happen?

  5. OSTONE says:

    No fool like Ben Affleck. This opportunist has him by the balls, she has to have something juicy on him for him to comply to her demands. I bet he wishes now he wouldn’t have messed with the sociopath nanny.

  6. Ellecommelejour says:

    Have you seen that video when she’s coming out of her house (?) And she replies : ” No comment ” to the paparazzi? Oh my daaaaaays! I could slap her face to take off that silly smile of hers!!

    • Jayna says:

      I know. She’s a stahhhhh. LOL

      People are losing interest and her few minutes are running out. She will soon have a rude-awakening that although she is quite enamored with herself, no one else is, and no offers for a reality show will be forthcoming, like she thinks. The public’s interest in this brief affair, or whatever it was, is waning.

    • Christin says:

      Her parents might have told her to leave until the storm blows over. They might not have been thrilled with her pap walks at their private residence.

      And what hotel does she choose?

      • laura in LA says:

        If she really has enough hush money to buy (or lease) herself a Lexus when she has no job right now, then shouldn’t she have moved out of her parents’ house and into her own apartment by now?

      • Christin says:

        Not that I think she is great with money, but what if she saved a chunk of her nanny pay from her two clients over the last year or two (not sure how long she worked for NPH). She lived with her parents — not a lot of expenses until this big show.

  7. Jayna says:

    She should change the spelling of her name to Kristine and join the Kartrashians on their reality show. She would fit right in with her shallow fame-hoeyness.

    She’s made a lot of money off of selling photos and stories. I imagine she leased this car, and the down payment came from some of those monies, as will her car payment. I don’t believe Ben had anything to do with it. Because she released that ring photo, I believe he hasn’t paid her off yet, if he ever will, because she’s still schilling her story.

    • Rice says:

      Jayna, no offence but please don’t give the Klan any ideas? PMK might be working up a “Benanny” story line with Lucifer as we speak.

      I still don’t know what I believe. Over at D-listed, the story is that she’s turning down TV interview offers bce she still thinks she has a shot at Ben. I haven’t been following this too closely; so if she’s not the one releasing all this ish, who is? Either her in order to get something, or maybe this is all orchestrated by Jen

      • Christin says:

        Seems like the leaks are veiled as ‘sources’. Then she can proclaim, ‘But it wasn’t ME!!!’ Just like it’s not his credit card number at the hotel.

        Maybe they are a match after all… 😍

      • MinnFinn says:

        I’m also confused about why BA’s handlers do not give her enough money to silence her. It’s clear that C’s silence could be bought for the right $.

        Maybe her price is in the millions. Perhaps BA’s people have calculated that it’s cheaper to wait her out and undo the damage later rather than pay for her silence now with millions?

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      Storyline: she goes to nanny for Kourtney and just as Scott has come around again, trying to be the “good” father/bf, he hooks up with Nanny in the season finale.

  8. frivolity says:

    Once the Affleck/Garner facade of a happy family was lifted, you just knew the floodgates would open.

    There’s probably a lot more where this came from – and not just from this shameless famewhore POS.

    • Aren says:

      If those two had never done the pap walks, or the “wearing ring for comicon”, the bahamas pap shoot, the fluffy dog introduction, etc., none of this would’ve happened.
      It would have been just another nanny story (like Beckham or even Gavin’s) and that would’ve been the end of it.
      But no, they had to play perfect family for the cameras.

      • aga says:

        I noticed one thing – the nanny stories are always after his trip to Atlanta and “happy family” photos as she says “I know that it’s facade, the truth is completely different”.
        And the question is what she really knows about Ben and Jen.

      • Lauren II says:

        JEN is a much better actress than I initially thought. Maybe she was trying to protect her children.
        Given Ben’s history – all his exes disparage him -Especially Goop.
        Jen was madly in love with Ben Bad Boy.
        Has 3 lovely children. Ben is an addict who gets bored easily. I am not shocked at all.
        Addicts always ruin families.

  9. Dmm says:

    She is also wearing a Cartier love bracelet — I don’t think someone on a nanny’s salary can afford that.

    • Audrey says:

      eh. i wouldn’t read too much into that. Could have been a christmas or birthday gift from when she was still employed by ben and jen

      but it’s silly for ben to deny things at this point. she’s clearly being paid off

  10. Chelly says:

    When you have a douchy husband, you dont hire a sexy loose nanny…you hire tweety bird’s owner, Granny

    • V4Real says:

      Or you hire Ms. Doubtfire or Super Nanny or Mary Poppins, no, not her she was kind of cute.

      • laura in LA says:

        In all fairness, though, there are PLENTY of nannies working now who just do their jobs without any of this nonsense…

        For example, the two new ones Jen has in Atlanta appear to be attractive brunettes, and I can only imagine how self-conscious they must feel about being in this kind of shame spotlight.

        Since, the Gafflecks also had other nannies before all this scandal, not to mention many assistants working quietly, I bet they were rolling their eyes at the nanny-ho’s antics, too.

    • Nicolette says:

      Yes, but then what? She can’t keep tabs on him 24/7. He’s a cheater, and they always find a way. If not the nanny, then someone he’s working on a film with, a fan or whatever. Some people simply can’t be trusted.

      • V4Real says:

        But at least it’s not happening in her household under the same roof where she and her kids live. Outside side-pieces are one thing but to have a member of your staff who you somewhat trust with your kids boning your husband is another.

  11. CK says:

    Ok… here’s my obligatory “I feel sorry for the kids” line so I don’t go to hell for my next statement. That being said, As someone who loves celebrity gossip, Former nanny Christine Ouzounian is like a christmas present in July/August. There is no shame in her game, she is incredibly messy and I am loving every minute of it. Do your thing, Christine (just make the cameras are rolling when you do. Scandal isn’t back on yet.).

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      If it helps I brought snacks for the handcart to hell and am willing to share, cause I am loving this like it was coated in chocolate. Hangs head in shame.

      • CK says:

        When she or someone she knew leaked that Super Bowl ring jet pic yesterday, I completely lost it and let out a silent “Yasss Queen” for her. I love that she is relishing in it and not trying to play coy like Vi Stiviano tried to do with those idiotic helmets.

    • Saywhatwhen says:

      @CK: Correct is right. I am here for all her shenanigans. She better be sitting on a pic of her riding little Ben ’cause while am not looking away am getting bored. Plus I really want this guy to be slaughtered in the press. Am not hear for the cheating husbands at all…and Ben has been a nasty piece of work long time now and that bugger seems harassed.

      Also, the very fact that he is responding to yesterday’s Page Six story tells me that Giselle and Tom feel harassed and compelled to distance themselves from the noise. Or more aptly is demanding that he distance them from the noise.

      Bring it Christine, girly! Am here for it all. Entertain us. You too, Jen. You are getting lost in the fray. Put on another hospital gown and one of dem 500 pairs of ugly shoes and show us Saint Mom.

      Hell…might be October before Halle puts in an appearance for another custody battle…

      I just wish she would have gotten a black Corvette/Ferrari and captioned the IG pic “can’t stop me in my new Batmobile” BAHAHAHA

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I loved Lainey’s closing paragraphs on this:

      “Ben Affleck dipped his dick in the social media generation. Guess what happened?

      And, you know what? I kinda love her for this, Christine Ouzounian, what she’s giving us. This girl REFUSES to go away. She is refusing to not be a problem for him. And it’s not like she gives a sh-t what the MiniVan Majority thinks. The MiniVan Majority’s opinion doesn’t matter to an LA girl raised on social media and reality television.

      Ben Affleck doesn’t know how to play this game.”

      • Trashaddict says:

      If she starts with the “he made me abort our baby” naartive then it is GAME OVER.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      Omg! And, EW!!!!

    • Jen43 says:

      I don’t think so. As someone above stated, she would be coyly touching her stomach if she were pg. She wants to be Ben’s anti-Jen.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        mmmmm…not necessarily. Girl is playing her cards close to her chest. Letting go of one little nugget at a time.

    • Neah23 says:

      If she is pregnant and that’s a big if she would be stupid to abort. She would get more money if keeps the baby, 18 years of child support from a millionaire and free house to live in. If she is pregnant by him it’s game over period.

      • Ellecommelejour says:

        Neah23 Haven’t you heard of a very famous sport player you used to ( still!? ) sleep around, his wife (allegedly) hired guys to beat up one of his mistress whose mouth was too big. And another one (allegedly) got paid a shit load of money to get an abortion, talking millions.
        Sometimes stuff happens behind closed doors…

      • Neah23 says:

        I still think 18 years of child support is worth more then one large sum. Have we learned nothing from Heather Mills. Lol

      • Dana M says:

        I see your point. However, if she agreed to abort she probably felt like she would have a chance of having a relationship with him since she didn’t fight it. So actually, she may be the one who got played. I do think this nanny fell in love with him.

        He probably finally figured out she was delusional and knew to pay her off to abort asap and perhaps even lead her on a bit and insinuated a relationship in the future to keep her content for the time being.

        The scenario above happened to people i once knew that worked together at an office . The douche in this situation had started another affair and tried to gently break it off with the abortee bc she was delusional and newly hit with depression due to her new found situation. Then the abortee heard a rumor that the douche had a new lover and she confronted the new fling. That was hilarious. they were fighting over him at work over company email. LOL. So pathetic. I don’t even think that fling #2 knew about the abortion. Meanwhile, douche’s wife was clueless this whole time.

      • RhoSue says:

        Fell in love with him, really? He could be any celebrity and she would be “in love”,

    As much as I want to enjoy this shit storm he’s created by being a knob, I can’t help but feel sad for the kids whose father couldn’t keep it in his pants and who she was employed to look after. They would have known, loved/liked and trusted her (presumably) so this will be doubly weird for them to read these things in years to come.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yeah, I really feel for the kids. This whole thing is just so disgusting and slimy.

    • Crumpet says:

      Yeah. I can’t enjoy this either. I wanted for so long to believe that Ben had conquered his demons and was enjoying fatherhood. Ugh.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      There’s no way they can be shielded from it. Once they have access to the internet, they can read all the smutty details for themselves.

  14. Kitten says:

    Come on C/B-just because there aren’t photos showing that there were other people on the plane, doesn’t mean that other people weren’t there. Not every person is as fame-whorey as this nanny and most well-adjusted people don’t need to IG a photo of themselves multiple times a day.

    • Marty says:

      It seems unlikely it would just be her, Affleck, and Brady.

      Man though, how much s**t do you think Gilsele is giving Tom right now?

      • V4Real says:

        Though I think Tom is innocent in all of this I bet she gave him hell just because he was with Ben and the Nanny. Gisele seems to be a person that cares too much about her well crafted image .

      • Kitten says:

        I bet Gis knew exactly where Tom was and even who he was with.

        That being said, I absolutely believe that she gave Brady hell for letting this chick wear his SB rings.
        As V4Real said, she’s nothing if not image-conscious.

      • Marty says:

        I just meant getting wrapped up in this whole mess. You know Gisele was probably like ” when Ben wants to bring his side piece on the private plane and wear your rings, you say NO”.

        Like someone said below, Ben’s starting to drag his friends into the mud with him.

      • Kitten says:

        I agree, Marty.

        I also wish people would leave Brady the hell out of it.

      • Jib says:

        I would give him s**t for letting this woman wear his rings if I were Gisele. C’mon, Brady knew she was screwing Ben, but played along enough to let her wear and take a pic with his Siper Bowl rings? That seems like a big deal to me. I can’t imagine he lets everyone wear them. It seems like he trusted her, and it throws shade on Brady’s character too. Not that he’s cheating, just that he’s ok with being with cheaters and actually plays along, too.

      • Kitten says:

        Ok so now Brady’s of poor character because he’s not inserting himself into Ben Affleck’s love life and telling him not to hurt Jen’s feelings? Why would it be any of Brady’s business who his friend chooses to screw after he and his wife are separated?

        LOL You guys crack me up, man.

      • Bored suburbanhousewife says:

        So so this was my first thought! Apart from image, I can’t believe Gis or any wife wouldn’t be like ” if any woman is going to pose for pix with YOUR rings it had better be moi!” And I wouldn’t want my husband junketing off to Vegas with loose douche cannon like Affleck and his side piece, And furthermore, Gis is. I one to mess with — she’s the type who could cut a bitch…..

      • Harrison says:

        Of course other staff were on the plane. The plane didn’t fly itself.

    • mindydopple says:

      At this point he’s so screwed that no one believes him and now he’s involved his friends, even worse. Did he ever deny taking her to vegas? It’s like he only denies in pieces and parts just enough until the next big story is uncovered.

    • V4Real says:

      I think the post did show photos of other people on the plane but I could be mistaken.

    • Antonym says:

      That’s my thought… That and, I think if she was alone with them on the plane then photos should never have happened. I think the only way they were both comfortable enough to ok this would be the presence of others , making the environment a “friendly fun” environment not romantic. I can see stupid photos on the private plane if it were a romantic trip, but once a third wheel is there….idk.

      • Kitten says:

        Completely agree with everything you said.

      • Neah23 says:

        I agree with you to a point. I believe there was other people on the plane more like a party weekend in Vegas with friends and Ben’s side piece and maybe even some of her friends as well.

    • LadyJane says:

      Aeons ago my girlfriends and I hung out all night with Bono and his friends. Nothing untoward happened at all, just dancing and lots of drinks, but when my friend when to take out her camera (okay I am SO old it was before camera phones were everywhere) Bono shut that thing down in 1 sec by politely saying, “Lets not start that”. Now I am not saying Bono is a saint but he sure as hell is smarter than Ben Affleck. And that was pre-social media saturation we have today.

    • Pamela says:

      Also, even if there were 20 other people on the plane that DID put pics of themselves wearing Brady’s rings on their IG accounts— the tabloids wouldn’t be printing them. We only know about the Nanny’s because she is currently in the gossip news. Legit assts etc that aren’t banging their celeb bosses aren’t “gossip news worthy”.

    • Luca76 says:

      Yeah but who were the other people on the plane? Other side pieces I’m sure.

    • littlestar says:

      I know, if I was one of those other people on the plane the last thing I would want to do is release a photo and have myself attached to this mess.

    • laura in LA says:


    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      They do if they are wearing a crap ton of super bowl rings. I have to go with CB on this one.

      • Kitten says:

        You’re just assuming that everyone on the plane was wearing Brady’s SB rings? Even if that were the case (which is a HUGE if), they would post it to their presumably private social media account, not leak the photo to the press like this chick did.

        The press isn’t interested in anybody who was on that plan who isn’t Affleck, the nanny, or Brady, so yeah, it’s entirely possible that other people were on that plane–no photographic evidence necessary.

  15. Catelina says:

    She was helping with the poker charities?? Why wasn’t she doing the job she was hired to do, which is take care of the kids? It’s not like she was Ben’s personal assistant. That explanation makes no sense.

    • Crumpet says:

      Because Jennifer had sent her home. Only she didn’t go home, she and Ben decided it would be peachy if she went with him to Vegas instead. Derp.

  16. Nola says:

    I can’t even enjoy the schadenfreude of the situation bc everyone involved is coming off like amerturs. Christine is so obvious and 2007. Ben is too simple mind in his PR ( she nagged me?! Really!) and Jen is very blatant with her saint motherhood pap pics( she doesn’t need to do anything but sit back and laugh).

    • Granger says:

      Jen’s saintly motherhood photos don’t bother me at all. If Ben really is the douchebag these stories make him out to be, then in my books, Jen can play the saint angle as much as she wants. I know I’m an outsider looking in, but from where I’m sitting, Jen and those beautiful children are the “victims” here. She did nothing wrong, and she has my sympathy. I can only imagine how sh***y her life is right now.

  17. tracking says:

    Good lord, how much money *did* he give her??

    • Hudson Girl says:

      I keep thinking that she sold her story to the gossip mags for the $$$ and that’s how she bought the Lexus.

  18. Christin says:

    Must have been one heck of a severance package then. Unemployed 28 year olds would have a tough time qualifying for a luxury car loan.

    Seems like the PR team keeps tossing out details, but is mostly going reactive once the public identifies gaping holes in their latest narrative to explain this mess.

  19. Skyblue says:

    While I don’t relish watching couples divorce, this story just keeps giving and giving. Awesome old school craziness! I love the Tom Brady ring bit, just cracks me up to no end.

    • Sayrah says:

      I know right? Brady was already dealing with a “cheating” scandal of his own and now this. He’s just as dumb as Affleck. Hilarious

      • Kitten says:

        “Now this”
        What though? Being seen on a private jet with a group of his friends?
        Oh the sandal!

      • Sayrah says:

        @kitten yeah, now this. You think he had no idea what was going on with this person and Ben? If you’re a pats fan I see defending him but you really don’t think this whole situation is ridiculous? I’d say Tom is kicking himself for having his name mentioned in this drama at all.

      • Kitten says:

        Oh I’m sure he doesn’t want to be a part of this but he’s friends with Ben.


        Presumably, he knows that Ben is separated from Jen, but why would he bother to concern himself with what Affleck is now doing in his personal life?

        I swear…some people are acting like it’s Brady’s job to morally police Ben when to Brady’s knowledge, all he’s doing is hitching a plane ride to Vegas to party with some friends. SMH.
        Additionally, most guys aren’t concerned with their friends’ relationship issues. In fact, most guys don’t even want to hear about that sh*t. So while Brady likely knew that Ben was involved with Christine, I seriously doubt he spent a lot of time thinking about the moral implications behind that or how that probably hurts Jen Garner’s feelings.

      • mimif says:

        I’m not a Pats fan by any stretch but dragging Brady for this is a joke. Like Kitten said, I highly doubt dude gives one f-ck what a separated Ben is doing. Besides, clearly the nanny was just along to “help”.

      • Kitten says:

        ..”help” by holding Ben’s weenus.


    • sills says:

      It really is the old-school juiciness of it, just the whole over the top, endless spectacle of the crazy train that won’t stop–you rarely see these kinds of public shenanigans with such high-level stars. It’s impossible to look away.

    • Esmom says:

      “Additionally, most guys aren’t concerned with their friends’ relationship issues.”

      THIS. My husband spent the weekend with some guy friends and one of them ended up bringing the hostess from the restaurant where they had dinner home for the night. Dude had been married for 20 years, with kids. My husband texted me sort of freaked out but in the end he never talked about it with his friend, they all shrugged it off like it was nothing the next day. I was dying for details and tales of remorse and regret…but my husband came back with nothing, and to my shock was super blasé about it. I, on the other hand, have never looked at the friend the same way again.

  20. Jess says:

    Does she not understand that all this bragging is making her look way worse? I’m starting to feel sorry for Ben because he was played, and I don’t want to feel sorry for that douche!!

    • Livealot says:

      Don’t feel sorry for that A hole. He obviously played with the nannys emotions (regardless of how stupid or naive she was to believe Ben) SO this is what he gets. He actually played with EVERYONEs emotions – Jen, his kids, and the nannys. SCREW HIM.

      The only difference is I would think of the kids before setting his world on fire…but clearly she’s passed that point.

    • littlestar says:

      You would think so, but apparently she doesn’t!

  21. snarky mcsnark says:

    I love that the main focus of this “Super Bowl Ring Picture” is that Tom travels with all 4 rings! Like every blog and mag has mentioned that as a point of focus, no one really cares much who is wearing them! This girl seems as basic as basic can be. And those socks ……. girl please!

    • Ellecommelejour says:

      The rings I didn’t care but the socks! Oh boy! I’ve noticed that straight away!!!!

    • Andrea S. says:

      Haha, the socks! Yes!! I was wondering if anyone else noticed homegirl wearing her ankle socks on the plane? Maybe she’s embarrassed of her bare feet? But, apparently she just came from The Bahamas, so 1 would hope she got a pedi before going…anyways, as far as guessing how much Ben gave her: I’m leaning towards low 6 figures.

      A $43K car isn’t that much if you’re sitting on 6 figures. Would also explain the bare-bones Love bracelet she’s sporting; but, she’s seen wearing it before everything blew up???

      There’s def a few puzzle pieces need positioning before we put this story to bed.

    • Olenna says:

      LOL! My eyes went straight from the rings to the socks, too. Most entertaining random sh*t I’ve seen in a while.

    • Wren says:

      I know, ugh! All I can see when I look at that picture is the awful socks.

    • Misskitti says:

      The socks were the first thing I noticed! They’re Costco socks! LOL.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Do we have an explanation as to why he travels with the rings? I think that’s so bizarre.

  22. boredblond says:

    First thought: Brady..Affleck..deflated balls..😉

    Maybe this is keep her around $..not disappear $..

  23. Tara says:

    All of this is just so unbelievably trashy I can only shake my head. Affleck is trash, a phony, and such an idiot. David Fincher was right about him. Think about how much he must be freaking out since he is so image-obsessed and can’t keep his mistress under control. And this woman is awfully proud and smug while a family is severed and children will suffer.

    • Jess says:

      What did David Fincher say about Affleck?

      • mimif says:

        “This is something that Ben is extraordinarily good at, when he has to cook up a phone conversation, when he has to hear somebody on the other end of the phone,” the director said, per the New York Daily News. “It’s kinda stunning how … If I was his wife, I think I would be very suspicious, always, of whoever just called because he has a real gift at being able to insinuate a conversation.”

      • Ronda says:

        mimif: what i love about this how casually Fincher talks about this in public. “THIS DUDE IS SHADY”

      • mimif says:

        I think it was actually commentary he made on filming Gone Girl, but yeah, it’s pretty damning.’He’s so duplicitous’ was another sound bite. Ouch.

  24. Original T.C. says:

    I’m totally now on board with the Celebitchies who think that the nanny has something big on Ben that could damage his career. Studio heads don’t freak out about actors cheating (women will give them, see how Ben was forgiven for cheating on J.lo) but they and the insurance companies put their feet down when it comes to hard drugs.

    The fanboy sites aren’t even reporting this story, they are still geeking out over the Empire mag issue where Ben reviewed old comic books and made sure Bruce Wayne’s hair in the film is just like in the comic books. He now has true geek cred which is all they need to go see his movies. Sad but true.

    P.S. I love that on the page 6 Twitter page women are calling the nanny not that good looking for a guy like Ben while the men are like: “no, she IS hot”. Men tend to forgive other men if they cheat with a hot woman because they can see why “he couldn’t help himself”. If she’s fugly they make fun of the guy. So yeah most men won’t hold it against him.
    Sample male Twitter comment:
    Aug 11
    KNUCK ‏@knuckletits
    @nypost obviously. don’t bring a hot nanny into your house cause your husband will f@@k her. that’s marriage 101.

    • kay says:

      Male geeks aren’t enough to make those movies a success, they need women to go watch Batflack and his man boobs but women are more interested in his scandals.

      • Starrywonder says:

        Yeah that’s why I would be nervous about this. Affleck ticking off women is going to mean less people in the seats for the movie.

        Also he looks really awful these days. How did he bloat up so much? Someone said he may have been on steroids for filming and say that his body going that way afterwards is what happens when you go off of them. He looks like crap.

      • Luca76 says:

        I don’t think most women are plugged in enough to celebrity gossip to not see a movie because Batman banged the nanny. I think the women who are riled up about this isn’t the demographic that would have gone to this anyway.
        I do think this will hurt his prestige if he ever has another movie in contention at the Oscars though.

      • Original T.C. says:

        @Kay and @StarryWonder: some comic geek fanboy sites now have at least one geekgirl writer on staff these days. Those women also don’t care about Nannygate. I’m on your side ladies and WANT blowback for Affleck. I am not a fan and think he is one of the worst actors, his talent is directing.

        Just stating the truth that men are easily forgiven and actors that women hate for their behavior towards spouses still do well if they stick to action, comic book and adventure films. Brad Pitt is hated by Jen fans, hasn’t affected his career. Tom Cruise’s wife had to stage a Mission Impossible escape for her and her daughter to leave Tom Cruise. He is tied up with shady/possible modern slavery at Scientilogy HQ yet both women and men will go see his films if the review is good and he smartly doesn’t do any romantic movies.

        Long list of examples. And in case we forget Ben Afflect was once publicly outed as cheating on his very famous and sexy Latina fiancée. Women hated him for a while yet he eventually climbed back to top with women including Latinas paying to go see his films.

        Infidelity really only affects female stars (hello Meg Ryan) because for most romantic films and dramas are all the are offered. Female audiences NEVER forgive cheating women. They will forgive the man who she cheated with but the woman will be the enemy for life. Unless the actress can switch to action/adventure or fantasy films, she is toast.

      • Ronda says:

        Original TC: How about Angelina Jolie? Doing fine with women, Kristen Stewart too, Jennifer Garner (cheated with Ben, so not sorry for her) is super popular with the demographic thats most offended by cheating, Rachel Weisz, Julia Roberts, Liz Taylor, Audrey Hepburn etc. So you cant really say “women suffer for cheating”. Actually most of those women I mentioned did better after outed for cheating and Stewart was even publicly caught which almost never happens.

        Also as said by someone above: the geeks are such a minortity they dont matter it terms of ticket sales, they are fantastic for hype (and terrible if they dont like the movie) but those movies are also often aimed at teenage girls, how many of them love Loki? Which is the loudest group when it comes to Dr. Who? Sherlock? Its all women.

    • Jayna says:

      Those sites don’t care at all. They are stoked that he will be directing the next Batman. He has won over most by the trailer as far as portraying Batman. Ben gets mostly praise now on those sites compared to when he was first announced as Batman, which was not pretty.. And what praise he doesn’t get now has nothing to do with nannygate. And no one will care about Ben’s personal life regarding Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, neither the casual fan of Batman or comic geeks. What few will stay away because of his messy personal life would be minimal. Look at the phenomenal success of Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation with Tom Cruise.

      So, in my opinion, Batman v. Superman will not be affected in the least by this, and it’s far enough away that it wll be a blip on the screen anyway. It would only be affected if the reviews were horrible, and even then, that didn’t affect the last Superman movie, which got so-so reviews.

      If he was putting out a romantic movie or such, it would affect the movie box office.

      • Starrywonder says:

        The male geeks don’t care. The female geeks do. Tom Cruise did big numbers with men and women in key demographics for Mission Impossible Rogue Nation.

        No one was that all fired up about Man of Steel and a lot of people have still been meh about the trailer. I am not excited about bloated Ben Affleck playing Bruce Wayne/Batman through two more movies and directing.

      • Illyra says:


      • Jayna says:

        @Starrywander, someone was all fired up about Man of Steel coming out. It made 668 million dollars. It was the highest grossing Superman film to date. Batman is always a better drawing card with the Bale/Nolan trilogy. Better villains also. I think Batman v. Superman will bring in big numbers using both together.

      • laura in LA says:

        And the release of Batman V Superman is not for another year. The media cycles through this personal stuff pretty fast. This nanny nonsense will be just another footnote by then.

      • Maria A. says:

        If I go to that movie, it will be because it got good reviews and because….WONDER WOMAN! Finally, Wonder Woman ON.THE.BIG.SCREEN.

  26. PHD gossip says:

    1. Ben & Tom are apoplectic as this story spins out of control.
    2. Nanny is the gift that keeps giving because she has the tabs on speed dial and wants fame more than money.
    3. Random observation: Jennifer is wearing a wig in the above photo
    4. Bet Nanny does a playboy pictorial next.

    Why would someone who is supposed to be the nanny be going anywhere with the father without the children present? Should someone with a gambling habit be going to poker tournaments? So many questions, so much skeeviness.

      Because reportedly Jen sent her home for being too ’emotional’. Please try to keep up (jk).

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        LOL but what does that even mean? She was too emotional? I would like to know specifics on that.

    • Ellecommelejour says:

      Exactly!! I’m a teacher and a nanny. I go nowhere without the kids!!!! I always under dress when husbands are around. When they talks to me I make sure to always mention their wives…
      I know some guys like the fantasy of having an affair with the nanny but I’m not that kind of girl and I don’t want to give any mixed-signal. She is giving us a bad press that silly B!tch !!!

      As for the expensive jewelries … I have 4 theories :
      – she got presents from previous or even the Affleck’s when she was still a ”good” nanny. I promise it happens.
      – she bought them herself. You can make tons of money being a nanny, especially if you have special skills ( no pun intended )
      – it’s a pay off because Ben wants her to shut her mouth, yet she wouldn’t
      – it’s a pay off because she got an abortion…

        In 2015 I am just wondering what place morals, ethics, good manners, humility, education and plain old decency have in this world. What to tell my child. I am straight up disillusioned—from politicians to college professors and movie stars…where are all the decent people hiding.

        So much bad behavior being rewarded. And I may shank a person for telling me my rewards are in heaven.

        I swear I’m never gonna get used to it!

  28. Liberty says:

    To him, this may be chump change, to delver everything on Grabby Nanny’s list. Because, per a story on ABC News last year (it only says Aug 29 so am guessing it was last year):

    “Affleck and his bosom buddy, Matt Damon, were playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Café, and apparently Benny struck the big time. Just when you’d want to start complaining that he’s a rich Hollywood actor and hardly needs the cash, he goes and gives up the green — all $140,000 of it — to the Sin City Hard Rock employees.

    An anonymous source told the New York Post, “He tipped out all of his chips to waitresses, dealers, concierges, bell guys — it was amazing … some people were getting $5,000, some people were getting more.””

    To him, she may be just a service employee getting some chips.

  29. applapoom says:

    Oh my. It has been a bad few months for Aflleck AND Brady.

    I have always refused to watch anything with Affleck in it. That movie he directed and Gone Girl even though he is evidently talented. He just comes across as such a douche.

    I’m tired of her and her antics already, she must have something good on Ben, smdh.

  32. Blythe says:

    She is the nanny from Hell. Ben deserves all of this backlash coming his way. He is a sleaze and everyone knows it. She is way too old to be flaunting these types of things.

  33. platypus says:

    Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s actually into her, and too high to care what she’s doing to his career (which seems to have been managed by his wife and buddies). He’s clearly not the brightest, and he’s no longer that guy who could get any woman he wanted, just because he’s famous and handsome. He’s clearly an uncharismatic mess right now, and most likely a drug addict, no woman famous in her own right would touch him. Until recently he was married with a beautiful wife and children, who seem to have been low on his list of priorities, so no regular woman with her brains or morals intact would either. That pretty much leaves him with women like Christine, and out of all the vapid gold-diggers, she probably wasn’t the worst.

    Considering the statement he put out about his wife’s nagging and showing up to events, it’s clear he’s totally tonedeaf in all of this and probably not even paying attention to the press she’s garnering for him (no pun intended).

    • Jess says:

      OH man. Spot on analysis. That’s our culture for you, our society, and I don’t know how Ben didn’t know this. He lives in our society too.

  35. Mon says:

    White cars are so tacky.

  36. Jas says:

    He always makes himself look so much worse by blatantly lying instead of owning his imperfections. I don’t believe she has anything big on him, he’s rich enough to send in highly trained people to retrieve any photo evidence she could have without her even noticing. Maybe she’s pregnant and he’s trying to convince her to terminate because he doesn’t want to be permanently tied to her pschyo. That’s a small possibility. I initially thought she was probably lying because she is so fame hungry but he would be suing her, not funding her if that was true. I do wonder if he’s using her and encouraging this behaviour to force Jennifer to accept their marriage as over. If that was true though he wouldn’t be indulging her by wearing his ring (very begrudgingly as we’ve seen).

    As he showed in the PBS show, he can’t bear to be seen as anything other than he wants people to believe about him. He can’t admit to anything. So he could just be stupid enough to be throwing money at this girl, while denying everything, playing married man in public post divorce announcement for some reason because he thinks it makes him look good…. This is so confusing. He needs to replace his publicist with a good one and listen to them.

  37. Dawn says:

    She is a cousin of a friend of mine. Believe me this girl will NOT stop until she gets what she wants. And she does NOT care who she drags down to do it. And that is about all I can say.

    • Jess says:

      Ben’s an idiot, but how do you raise a girl like this? I don’t have kids and I doubt I’d want to but…seriously, how do you raise a shameless woman like this?

    • Jayna says:

      After the shameless instagrams and setting Ben up and selling him out with the photo at his rental before she even knew if they were done or not and selling these stories and mugging for the camera, I have to say I do believe you.

      @Dawn, what I want to know is what do her parents and twin, who is, or was at least, in the business of working for celebs so could affect her, think about what she is doing, being so fame-hoing and shameless about selling stories and alerting paps about her sheNANNYgans with Ben while working for Ben and Jen?

      You know, I was all about Ben paying her off big to shut her up and stop it for his wife’s sake, and children’s. But now I don’t want him to give her a dime, because you just know she wants a million or more. Ben should just go the Letterman route and admit he was unfaithful at the end of this marriage when they had already decided to divorce, but still betrayed his wife in the worst possible way with an employee, and say he will not be blackmailed about his and it’s the last he is going to talk about it. End of story. Of course, knowing this bimbo, she would probably then file a lawsuit for sexual harassment by an employer to really put the screws to him, and he ends up paying in the end anyway to settle the case and make her go away.

      • Kitten says:

      • Pamela says:

        Jayna, the Letterman route would be the BEST thing he could do,

        I don’t think admitting to the affair would be all that big a deal for him. Everyone already pegged him for a cheater in general, and assumes that he did have an affair with the Nanny. So it isn’t really admitting to anything we don’t already know. Their marriage WAS over at the time. I think it is despicable if he slept with the nanny, and many people agree with me— but had it been with some random side piece that wasn’t around his kids and soon to be ex-wife? Many people would NOT see much of a problem with that .

        If he admits it himself– he gets points for being humble (not from ME, but possibly from some people) and it would shut down the Nanny’s Papparazzi Shenanigans once and for all.

    • Aren says:

      Oh wow! That’s terrible, and you should DEFINITELY sell the story.

      At first I thought this was Ben trying to destroy the ‘happy marriage’ image completely and beyond any point of repair, now I think this girl is a real leech.

      My suggestion is Ben should go to rehab, release a statement about how sorry he is to have hurt his family (as much of a rat he is, he probably does love his kids), and maybe reconcile for a bit with Garner just so they can part ways in a less dramatic manner.

      Everybody wins, except for the psycho stalker nanny.

      PS. Anybody knows how a girl like her was able to get a job as a nanny? Aren’t there tests and interviews made to avoid this from happening?

      • Ellecommelejour says:

        “Anybody knows how a girl like her was able to get a job as a nanny? Aren’t there tests and interviews made to avoid this from happening? “…

        I wish ! Because when I see some of my fellow ”coworkers” with no experience and/or diploma get some crazy good position and salary I’m just SMH. Some agencies just have really good connections and know how to sell a ”nanny”. Some are really good though, I just wish it was all of them.

      • Neah23 says:

        So wait your ridiculing the nanny for sell her story and showing the world what kind of person Ben is, but you want Dawn to sell a story she may have? Talk about hypocrite.

        Your suggesting that Ben play with his estranged wife feeling, the women he cheated on by reconcile for a bit to fix his image, which will only hurt his kids more in the end.

        How is the nanny a psycho stalker.

      • Ellecommelejour says:

        Neah, why hypocrite?
        How does selling her story and ending everything she is (apparently) trying to do equals being hypocrite?
        Since we all agree that she and Ben are both in the wrong in this story, so it would be payback time in a way?!

        Dawn and Dani – spill the beans about the nanny! 😛

        On another note it’s very creepy how every article speaks of this woman as Ben Affleck’s nanny 😐

      • Christin says:

        Why isn’t a media outlet digging into her background? Is it because she’s apparently hiding behind sources and keeping her social media ‘private’?

        She sounds like the type of person people avoid once they realize how she is, but I think those who know her could go to the media as a ‘source’ and remain anonymous.

        Just don’t go to the ones she (rather, her sources) have used.

    • laura in LA says:

      Wow, Dawn. But you pretty much confirmed what I already thought of her. She’s a Histrionic Personality to a T!

  38. Merritt says:

    Ben and the Nanny are both idiots. I have no idea if he is footing the bill for all these purchases. I have doubts about that. I feel like if he was giving her money it would have stopped once she started blabbing to the press. Wherever that money is coming from it is not going to happen forever, so she should save some of it, because she has killed her career opportunities with her stupidity. I suppose she could be getting enough money from tabloids to pay for some of these things.

    He has crappy PR. But he is a crappy person so I guess it fits.

    • Jess says:

      I have doubts about him paying for everything as well, but then think maybe she does have something big on him and that’s why she’s shamelessly flaunting it, OR, she’s getting a decent amount from the slow leak of pictures and stories and she’s an idiot for blowing it like this. I don’t think Ben is into her now, if he was surely he’s realized by now that she’s a famewhore who played him, either they were already over and she’s pissed or she’s dumb and ruining her chances.

    • Pamela says:

      ” I have no idea if he is footing the bill for all these purchases. I have doubts about that. I feel like if he was giving her money it would have stopped once she started blabbing to the press.”

      YES! I agree. At this point, it makes no sense for him to be giving her ANY money, because she is blabbing everywhere. The one possibility would be if he gave her a VERY large sum like 250k in the very beginning, hoping she would keep quiet—she took it, is living off it, and is not keeping quiet. If that is the case, she may have nothing much else left on him. The idea that she has a sex tape of them, or info on a drug habit? That only makes sense if he is actively giving her more and more money. He may not be doing that, he may have tried to pay her off already with a big fat check, and she is living off that while he refuses to have anything else to do with her. At this point, if she has photos of them together in bed… who cares? We all assume that they had an affair already, printed proof wouldn’t be all that much more damaging. He keeps denying the affair— but no one believes him—so the pics wouldn’t be as valuable as they would be if we would truly be scandalized by their release. Drug info? Now that would be a scandal. But if she had something on me, I wouldn’t trust the money to keep her quiet because she is clearly NOT trustworthy on any level.

      • Merritt says:

        All she has really done is confirm what many suspected of Affleck for years, it was always just a question of who and why none of them had come forward. And the reality is nude pictures or sex tape scandals don’t tend to cause the backlash against men the way they do women. I think if she had anything that big, it would be out there by now. Time will tell, but that the moment I have doubts she has much else to give the tabloids.

        Whatever she and Ben had, is over. He has a big ego and hates to look like an idiot in the media. And she has made him look like an idiot.

  39. Paloma says:

    This is so delightful; better than any summer movie (sorry Jen).

    She could have gone to a Lexus dealership for all we know; however, who is really paying her hotel bill? She is enjoying herself. If Ben is paying her hush money, she’s not keeping her end of the bargain. Could be she’s manufacturing an entire charade out of thin air. All I can say is “Bravo, well done.”

    • Neah23 says:

      No if she was manufacturing the affair. If she was Ben and his people would have sued her two weeks ago, but they’re not because she telling the truth and a lawsuit will only hurt him.

    • cheryl says:

      Yes. It’s better than a summertime movie. It keeps unfolding, and nothing ever really adds up. Seems like Lainey (other go to gossip site)has also lost the plot on this one.
      Saint Jen seemingly has lost/ditched? her hubby and she has lost total control of the pr narrative. Incurable Ben only projects a couldn’t care less shrug about the marriage, his pr game, and the nannyantics. At least he’s consistent on the attitude. Nanny seems to be playing a rogue pr cat and mouse game but possibly just making up her cards. And wearing a wedding ring. HINT. And money is being passed around. Not enough to shut her up. Not enough to get a big reveal either. What does she have on him? Maybe he told her he didn’t love Jen. Maybe he insinuated he actually loved her. Maybe loves drugs and gambling and would love her to be a party girl for all of that? And she has a couple of texts? Interested to see how the birthday is celebrated. And what happens to the puppy. And the bad shoes. And the farmer’s markets. And the exit from the hotel.
      And she even has a twin. And there are private jet planes and famous friends and Vegas.
      The story doesn’t have burner phones though…
      Yep..summertime bunny boiler divorce drama is pretty good.

  42. lucy2 says:

    Nice try, Camp Affleck.
    Assistants and staff helping at an event? Sure. But a nanny, when no children are present? No.
    Ben is incredibly stupid.

  43. Snowflake says:

    I don’t get why he got with her. She’s average looking and almost 30. As famous as he is, he could have gotten younger and hotter. But boy, she really thinks she’s the shit, that’s why I’m bagging on her. And doesn’t even have enough decency to be embarrassed. Her parents must be so proud. This chicks a Damn idiot, she is going to regret this one day. Btw, I’m 39, so nothing against women over 20, but I can’t stand her posing and preening, like she’s the shit. She’s just a stupid bimbo

    • Kitten says:

      As I’ve said before but I think it was an affair out of convenience more than anything.

      Ben was lonely, going through a separation and probably depressed and worried, knowing his image would take a hit, and she was just…there.
      Plus they already had an existing relationship-she was in their house, she already knew who he was and understood the family dynamics. Who knows? Maybe he and the nanny even bitched about Jen together. It’s a gross thought but I could see it happening.

      What I’m getting at is that they already had a relatively intimate connection as far as professional relationships go. I bet it was just easy for Ben to look to her for comfort or escapism or whatever else drives someone to have an affair.

      • Jayna says:

        I agree with you totally. It’s the proximity of her in the house every day and the marriage tanking. When marriages are ending, I’ve said it before, it’s not rosy in the home before it officially happens. There’s a lot of anger and passive-aggressiveness and bitterness and sadness going on, Ben leaving the house at times to stay at the hotel during that year because of the strain between them Rarely is it anyone’s finest moment leading up to it. There was the nanny looking up to him all adoringly, being sympathetic, probably looking forward to seeing her when she came to work as time went on. Jen is off making a movie in Canada a lot of that time, unwittingly giving the space for them to develop that when hanging out with the kids together during the week.

        It’s not excusing any of it. It is stating the fact of how it probably developed.

      • Christin says:

        As confusing as this story has been, I do believe he suggested hiring her (NPH connection). I agree that they probably did connect either by secretly partying together and/or griping behind Jen’s back. Maybe more; who knows.

        She may have a bunch of secret texts or recordings of him blasting Jen when he was away from home as well.

      • Sayrah says:

        I totally agree with this. I’m sure there was a lot of talk about Jen making him feel inadequate (we’ve already seen his people put that out there) and with that goes the fluffing of his ego by this person in his house – “oh no! You’re so wonderful, a great father and actor and director. And so fun and a great card player too. Could you teach me?! I can’t believe she can’t see all that and just how sexy you are.” Bam! They’re in bed together and she’s neglecting her nanny duties. She was desperate for his attention and he obliged because that’s what he does.

    • Jess says:

      Someone made this good point earlier but he’s with her because she’s all he can get. All of the moral, reasonable women of the world know he’s SHADY for sure now and wouldn’t date him. Maybe in a few years time, other women will come along but for now, this type of woman is all he can get.

  44. A. Key says:

    I gotta hand it to the nanny, she’s definitely more entertaining than that whole lot of A-listers put together!

    She’s also waaaay better looking than Gisele, muahahahahaha

    • Claire says:

      “She’s also waaaay better looking than Gisele” beauty is in the eye of the beholder…but man, Gisele is Helen of Troy next to this girl. She’s pretty but by no means a knockout beauty.

  45. Saks says:

    I just wonder, how does Ben feel about “normal/boring/homely” Jennifer Gardner’s lifestyle now?

  46. A. Key says:

    Plot twist – Garner’s paying for the hotel and lexus just to rub it in!l and make him look worse!! LOLOLOLOL

  47. dippit says:

    I’m no easy touch on denials from cheaters, and I do think Ben is a cheater. However, I am really beginning to wonder if, in this case, “the friends, confidante, nothing sexual” is true.

    I wonder if the hold, because there must be one, is of a drunken (drugged up?) confessional moment to a ‘confidante’ (one appearing in apparent awe and flirtatious but no deal sealed with sex). Now, because of past reputation, Ben’s denials are implausible. Kind of a twist on crying wolf but he can’t go heavy on her because she knows SOMETHING, rather more potentially damaging than having a quick and convenient bunk-up.

    Even her having nude pics/vid would, at this stage, be something Ben would be embarrassed by the release of and have to put his hands up to an affair BUT not a major biggie in irreparable career damage. His marriage is/*was* over anyway. He’s taking a much harder hit as it stands now when admitting an affair would be easier, quicker, done – and she would lose all her media oxygen pdq.

    Even the champagne delivery pics did not have the red hot lover body language to be expected. If, at that point pre the story breaking, they had THAT intimacy she could have easily provoked a more physical photo-op. She’d arranged the pap and staged Ben outside his rental. Ben was unaware: 1/ they were being photographed; 2/ that she/the story was about to hit. If, they had any kind of a thing (beyond her role as ‘safe starstruck friend’) she could’ve/would’ve made those stealth pics more undeniably ‘lovers meeting’.

    She is too obviously craving fame (money and luxury goods are the incidentals signalling she’s made ‘It’ but NOT the main motivation). If she just wanted financially set-up on the back of an affair then that’s quiet pay-off and NDA territory. She can surely have no expectation Ben can/would want to be with her now, or in the future, for ‘love and life’.

    Her being “emotional” in the Bahamas implies all was NOT going her way and her seeming ultra thick skinned unhinged was in the offing. At that point, allowing the ‘ONLY a confidante’ theory, Ben could’ve thought her being an extra pair of hands in Vegas wouldn’t be a problem. They’d definitely shared time (inadvisably) together but I’m not sure the “inappropriate” of that time is of the type it’s natural for everyone to assume.

    Also, the whole “she was asked by Jen to the Bahamas because her sister lives there” angle has barely registered beyond passing mention.

    This 29yr old woman comes across as extremely immature with huge signs of fantasist & narcissism. She came into the Affleck-Garner household at Perfect Storm time in their marriage. There’s no doubt she thought to exploit that to tempt Ben. I just wonder if she tried to parlay ‘shoulder and ear to cry with’ into more but, atypically, Ben really did just want the willing ear and no more. BUT he said too much, unwittingly, about *Something* and that is now her hold over him.

    I know, given past form, it’s a stretch; but wouldn’t there be an irony if this is the one time he kept his zip up but can’t all out try to convince of that because the real indiscretion(s) Nanny has on him are far worse with wider consequences.

    Something about the way Ben’s responses are restrained doesn’t seem right if it’s JUST an affair. Likewise, even Jen’s approach isn’t so much scorned woman BUT despairing ‘accomplice’ in something of which she’d rather have no part.

    This is great gossip meltdown a la Lifetime, but Lifetime movies always have a twist.

    My read now is a simple other woman (pics/sex-tape) is way too basic. Nanny got more; and maybe NOT just (or EVEN) Ben’s D.

      I honestly don’t think she has anything on them, otherwise Ben and Jen would be doing serious damage control now. Instead, they both seem to have carried on with their lives.

      I think she’s on her own at this point, and she wants the world to believe she’s still with Ben, that he’s buying her things, that they did have a relationship, etc.

      I’m sure Ben and Jen have much bigger things to worry about, and are just letting the woman enjoy her 15 minutes while making a fool of herself.

      • dippit says:

        Then, someone is financing Nanny’s show of sudden (implied as Ben’s wallet) access to wealth. The only reason for ANother to bankroll her would be if they’re convinced there’s a big profit to be made backend.

        If all Nanny has is a few tumbles with Ben; the world and his wife, AND, crucially, Ben’s wife already know, or at least think they do. It’s a very old and increasingly basic scandal story so has diminishing returns on profitability for Nanny (and any financial sponsors). Even pics/vid is pretty low pay-off these days if standard vanilla sex in content.

        Ben being a skeez (even with an embarrassing small D for all to see) released across the globe in HD would be a 3 day wonder and, especially because of the freedom of the internet, wouldn’t make much money for her/whoever.

        I don’t doubt she’s trying to extend her 15 minutes, but she’s spending *someone’s* money whilst and in order to do so.

        If Ben & Jen are simply detached and getting on waiting for it to blow out, it’s not their money. OR, if it was initial hush money for just an affair and she then clearly reneged, they have better lawyers than that surely; and will have cut her off by now.

        It’s easy to believe the plotholes are in Ben’s denials, that would be the usual run for such matters. I’m just starting to think the actual holes may lie on her side of things but are currently being made safe or hidden behind or because of another *Something*.

        Just a thought… otherwise, why doesn’t Ben not just admit his ‘mistake’, deny he has any further interest in her, take the shaming, and watch her deflate in an instant?

        There’s obviously escalating brinkmanship going on which doesn’t chime with just a basic b**** making bank out of a basic Hollywood fling.

      • Maia says:

        I agree. Whenever celebrities pay women off they take the money and disappear. He is not paying her off. From the beginning this woman has struck me as being completely untruthful. I honestly don’t think that she has any dirt on Affleck at all, because if she had and Ben was paying her she would have disappeared by now.

        I think that all of this is for show. The girl’s an idiot and probably going into serious debt to try and give people the impression that she actually has any connection with Ben and he is paying for this stuff. I would not be surprised if the magazines paid for her hotel stay in return for those “exclusive” bikini pictures. The amount would match – something to the tune of $10K. The car – I would wager a significant bet that she made a downpayment of $500 to get it and it will disappear in a few days. She is doing all this to try and get interviews with TV and they are not coming because I suspect that this is *one* time that people in the media actually believe Ben, no matter what they print in their magazines.

      • Neah23 says:

        @ Maia

        They don’t believe Ben as someone said above she can always say that it was not selling stuff to the media but friends, If she goes on TV she can’t use that.

        You know why the they don’t believe him is because nether Ben or Jen are suing her for defamation of character. Which is what you and some others should be asking yourself if her claims are false why is he not suing. A lawsuit should put a end to all this and clear his name, but that’s not happening.

      • dippit says:

        @Neah23 I’m not sure the suing or not doing so amounts to much either way in validating/not Nanny’s claims of an affair and ‘love’.

        If she doesn’t have anything as proof (because Nothing happened OR she failed to get receipts) then any suit would be a protracted and expensive “he said, she said” for the Afflecks and would never settle the ‘public image’ matter regardless of outcome.

        There would be a lot of noise and “when did you stop beating your wife” fallacy type exposure for little chance of incontrovertible resolve in the end.

        The old trying to prove a negative doesn’t bear up well when the ‘proof’ for civil suit is weighted to preponderance rather than beyond reasonable doubt.

        I’m more convinced the Nanny is holding something else but wrapping it in her own fantasy desires for fame and Ben. “He slept with me, told me he loved me, is still in touch daily… ” are all sounding increasingly childish novella level stuff from a fevered imagination.

        But, because Ben is a cheater by history, they’re plausible and easily accepted. Yet somehow… this time, this one he maybe did actually pass on.

        I’m finding it easier to picture a drunken and depressed Ben in the throes of his marriage break-up as emotionally seduced by a willing pretty ear in thrall to his self-absorbed pitying. That I can imagine leading to a loose tongue and now a soft-pedal (maybe with some pay-off cash) to stop exposure of Other indiscretions Nanny got info on in late night chats.

        It just seems to me that it’s easier to admit to an affair if that’s all it was than have the other woman continue as a running daily PR sore; UNLESS, the real reason to let her carry on selling the impression of an affair is fear of being exposed for something much worse.

      • Nead23 says:

        @ Laura in LA

        First off just because I’m not on the trash the nanny bandwagon dose not mean I’m on her side. What I’m not down with is trashing the women and giving then man a pass, like you and some others are doing which says more about you then me.

        Secondly I’m the one who believes the affair happened unlike you who live in super fan Lala land and believes get the nanny drug Ben and took advantage of him.

        Thirdly fact is if the nanny was lying their would be a lawsuit, there is no lawsuit so she NOT lying.

      • Neah23 says:

        @ dippit

        Defamation of character occurs when someone makes a false statement about you that causes you some type of harm. The statement must be published (meaning some third party must have heard it), false, and it must result in harm, usually to the reputation.

        If she is lying then the harm it cause is to his brand which is his image and image is everything and to his children. The fact that this “slander” could affect his kids is perfect for a lawsuit.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        Right @dippit. I agree. There is more going on here– something substantial to be exposed, or may be he loves the Nanny??! hahahahaha. That’s why I’m liking one of the following theories:

        1. Tom Brady theory-as in there are beans to spill somehow involving him, and Ben is taking hits to his own person to keep Tom out of it, or to protect someone else???

        2. Beyond all reason, Ben actually is into Nanny Oozie

        3. He has revealed something super personal and damaging to Nanny Oozie

      • laura in LA says:

        Neah23, they can’t sue her, not for defamation, extortion or violation of the NDA, because she’s been hiding behind “sources” and hasn’t revealed anything yet, nor spoken directly to the press. Seriously, though, if she has to setup pap shots with Ben and otherwise leaks only photos of herself, perhaps that’s because she doesn’t have anything, but believe what you want to believe…

        Who’s giving “the man” a pass here? If you read any of my posts, you’ll see that I don’t take sides, Ben vs Jen. I just want to get to the truth of the story, but it sure does seem like you’re projecting your own issues with men onto this situation.

        As for me, I know women like this nanny, and it seems others here actually know Christine as a person. She’ll not only take down “the man”, but the woman and their children, too, and for what – a week at the Bel-Air, a Lexus, and some notoriety. At this point, who cares if he slept with her or not! Stupid of him if he did, but it’s shameful what she’s doing now.

        “Trashing the women”? Sorry, but the nanny-ho seeks attention, good or bad, so she deserves all the trashing she gets! By the way, I’ve read your other posts, and it sure does seem like you’re in favor of all this, also that you like to annoy others on this site, so maybe you have some unresolved issues with women, too, huh?

        My goodness, Neah23, or Nead23, however you spell it today, get over yourself. You’re the one living in la la land as if this “affair” happened to you!

      • dippit says:

        @Neah23 I know the law on it. However, your theory that their not suing as a qed case proven relies on: 1/ it’s true BUT, far more crucially, 2/ Nanny can prove it and the Afflecks know so.

        However, if it is not true (whether other secrets are in the mix or not) they are in a far more invidious position. If they took action as you suggest, the onus is on them to prove she’s lying. That is easier said than done. Most particularly given the media focus and significant speculation over Ben’s lack of fidelity in the past. The nature of an affair (standard level) is only two bodies are in the room, neither at that point likely to be assuming on having to disprove their body was naked and engaging down the line. “He said (did), she said (did)” is an inbuilt problem on disproving. Cameras etc are only good for proving. An alibi is tough given Nanny-Father at home proximity and opportunity.

        Trying to prove a negative is very often a pointless and, potentially damaging in other ways, task. Usually, even if successful, it’s a pyrrhic victory in matters such as this.

        So it’s a leapt to accept simply – it must all be true, otherwise they would sue.

        Far more likely, if it did, she can prove it, and they know she can, two things typically happen: 1/ she is quietly paid to shush (and legally tied up to remain shushed for a long foreseeable). This would not be done in either an incremental or showy way – certainly not allowing her conspicuous hotel tabs or cars. AND definitely not allowing her to go unchecked with implications (however with deniability as ‘friend sources’ briefing the press) of daily forever otp schoolgirl texting with Ben. So 2/ is, after two weeks being slammed, Ben puts his hands up (he’s already mega bad guy to most anyway), does full-on shame and contrition AND Nanny’s thunder is stolen – an embarrassing beginning to End the sorry tale.

        Neither of these things are happening. Nanny is actually escalating daily.

        So, why? Now you could argue Ben is awaiting it blowing over to settle in Happy Ever After with Nanny… I don’t think that for a second. So… back to it being preferable to, whilst half-heartedly denying it, have people assume the easy option. An affair. Because, something far more damaging is within Nanny’s power to reveal, perhaps?

        Whatever, she is being allowed an odd amount of latitude in this whilst Ben continues to maintain a denial when putting his hands up at this stage would be in his better interests, if true.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Maybe he confided in her, and maybe the hold is something that he said, but no way did he not sleep with her. Get real.

      • dippit says:

        Oh I’m not ruling the sleeping with out as such. Although I do think there’s more scope for he might not have done (this time) than first appeared.

        My big But, is now a THAT can’t be all it is. Were it just (for ALL that’s sh*tty) an affair, I think she’d have been shut down before now: pay-off or Ben confessing.

        This is keeping on running as more juicy than just THAT.

    • laura in LA says:

      dippit, I think you’ve got it. This is sort of what I’ve been trying to say, but you obviously have more knowledge of these issues and said it all far better than I could. So, thank you for that, this is some interesting stuff you posted here!

      • dippit says:

        Hehe, @ “more knowledge of these issues”. Only in a TOTALLY detached observer way, honest. 😀 . I doubt I’d have the energy required for intimate knowledge of such shennanigans… even if an A-Lister were willing 😉 AND Ben would NOT be my first pick. Actually, I’d maybe make ethical exceptions for a couple, but neither are A-List, sadly.

        Edit: three – third just about squeaks in as A in his field. 🙂

  48. Jayna says:

    LOL Life imitating art.

    Ben should do a remake.

  49. Tina says:

    Everyday I think this will be the day that Ben shuts the awful story down. Everyday I am wrong. I think it is pretty obvious that Jennifer Garner was reluctant to pull the plug on the marriage. She knew that Ben would crash without her “controlling” him. I can only imagine what she has gone through with him. Also, she has to have a relationship with him for the rest of her life. At least if they stay married she could continue to try and manage him. Personally, I think she is handling this wonderfully. She is out to work, she is taking care of her kids, she is not changing much of anything about how she lives her life. I hope she continues to seek counseling as well as for the children. It was so pathetic how those kids clung to him last week at the mall. I don’t think they have ever had a great deal of continuous time with Ben and they love him. Jennifer knows this. I just wish he could have let them have a dignified divorce. She does not deserve this mess. Can you imagine how her and her extended family feel?

  50. Andrea says:

    Every day there is something new! Wow, is he the stupidest celeb around currently? Poor Jennifer having to deal with his sorry a$$ for the rest of her life.

  51. DodieTn says:

    I think what disappointed me the most here is that Ben could handle this better but being he is in the throes of addiction it will probably only get worse. If I were his friends I would reevaluate the friendship because if he treats his kids/wife this way then he will most likely sh@t on you too. Plus maybe he can’t do any better than this nanny from hell as they are quite alike and probably after most women have been with him they see he isn’t all that special. He seems egotistical, dramatic and lives on edge. That gets old after a while. He gambles not only with money and career but his children and that is horribly sad. Those children adore him I am sure and he cannot even be respectful to them. I think he will never be happy no matter who he is with. I think he will regret this in years to come, in fact I am sure he will. I liked him because he is fellow Leo but not so much now.

  52. Pondering thoughts says:

    A hotel bill in the lower five figures. A brand new five figure car.
    It looks like Affleck is throwing money at the nanny.
    Is she his next girfriend or does he try to keep her silent?

    If the latter is the case I pity her when she will get dumped in the near future.

    • Jayna says:

      Meh. The car is a lease car most likely. She took some of her rag mag stories money and put down as a down payment and has a monthly payment she can afford from her photo-op/story selling. Plus he gave her three months severence at the time. I’m sure it’s way more than she was making just to be generous. She lives at home with her family when not staying at her luxury hotel. No other bills to speak of.

      Ben probably agreed to pay for her at the hotel at the time as severance and damage control, not realizing at first she set up that first photo, not realizing she was going to keep selling him out. And even if he did, I doubt he still is. I agree with the poster higher up, who said the rag mag probably paid for the rooms in exchange for a story and bikini photos. Ben isn’t funding some fame-ho that isn’t keeping her mouth shut and keeps releasing more stuff, now embarrassing his friend, Brady.

      I don’t believe for a second with all the damage she keeps doing and selling and releasing photographs that he just now paid for a car that she is publicizing in an instagram bragging, so couldn’t be a payoff. He wouldn’t throw any more money at her until she signed something shutting up.

      • laura in LA says:

        MTE, Jayna.

        But if the nanny-ho thinks she’s going to parlay this into something more, then she’d better deliver something shockingly scandalous before the money runs out.

        Because what we’ve seen so far is really not much, and even the tabloids will tire of this nothingness soon.

        Yeah. I’m not entirely sure Affleck is paying her off. He might have given her a tidy severance package. I think her money comes from the tabs thinking she has major dirt on him.

  53. enastein says:

    I have theory on Nannygate, I think Ben real flame is well known actress up and coming. the actress/ studios refused to be in Angelina shoes because she knows she is no Jolie and he is no Brad the huge studios business can not risk such Revelation.

    so we transit the divorce with some unknown Nannie till divorce finishes and then in the near future what ever actress Ben will connect to she is the one. Also Ben other big issues will be lost with Nannygate.

    I always had that feeling that Jen and brad have some sort of agreement and most drama came because the other woman was bigger name and prettier.

    I don’t think Jennifer garner would have allowed that to happen. so how about a transit unknown nanny that bothers no studio, not fully damaging Ben future, nor ex wife ,not even risking the high and upcoming actress future and side margin gambling & addictions rumors? not bad eh

    In other words i think the nanny is just decoy for all parties that’s why all seem so friendly despite the events.

    This nanny has benefited all parties in an inevitable divorce.

    1- she is took major grossness from him and people are discussing her more than Ben.
    2- Jennifer is much much better looking because she is just a cash grab nanny vs a well actress with dangerous beauty.
    2- it took the bad interview of Ben with his ancestry out of site.
    4- such nanny will not damage big studio future business.
    5- money will stay in the family.
    6- away from addiction rumors and future reputation.

    Most people came to conclusion that Ben is idiot , that is much better than mean deadbeat dad , wife cheater.

    The covering is fun and exhausting as if they are keeping these tidbit going till we get bored.
    In the end we will have to let go of Ben. The poor idiot batman who shagged a Nanny on the side .. eh no biggie in Batman and men world.

    • mimif says:

      Bravo. So who’s the actress?

    • SillySimone says:

      I don’t think so. The more I think about it, the more I honestly cannot believe any of this is about an affair with a civilian or an actress. It just keeps nagging at me to try to understand why he would be paying this woman money. She is not keeping silent. More importantly, she seems to be implicating others at this point as well. He may have slept with her, but I don’t think he is banking her. I think what she has is some cleverly posed photos that she has provided. I think the next leaks will be of her naked and an exclusive about him as a lover. Mark my words, the real scandal here might be that the media is paying her to set him up – as much of a douche as he is – that is the only thing I can think of. I would not be surprised if she is a call girl placed in that family to trap him by these tabloids. Just look what the tabloids did in the phone hacking scandal in England, the bribing of cops, etc. This was a serious operation. And clearly someone really wants him done with.

  54. CidySmiley says:

    I was a nanny for about a year my first year in college, I stayed during the weekends so the parents could fly out and work. And can I just say, girls like this make us all look bad. My last week there the “man of the house.” Asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and he saw me making eyes at him. NEVER. IN. MY. LIFE. I walked away from that job sad for the kids because I knew it wasn’t new. Same way I feel for their kids. This isn’t the first time he’s slept with “the help.” This is just the first time he stuck his d*ck into crazy.

    Honestly, she’s the type of itch that won’t go away. It doesn’t matter how much money he gives her, she’s in it for the life style, she doesn’t care about self respect or any of those things. She’s probably sitting on some video or photos and will hold them over his head until she’s got enough to retire. I feel bad for his kids and for Jen, because this was his mistake and this is going to be following them for the rest of their lives. His oldest is definitely old enough to Google him, and to read the magazine covers and now they have to have an awkward talk of “everyone thinks daddy shagged the nanny. And he probably did.”

    Ugh, gross.

  55. FWiW says:

    Ben is being outplayed by the nanny. He throws money at her in the hopes she will keep quiet but I guess she wants more $$$ and she does not want to sign any contracts. She wants it all. As long as she doesn’t sign she can have money for years! Plus she’s hoping she can have a Hollywood career because she probably thinks if the Kardashians did it so can she. This is not about love .. it has always been about money for her. She stayed in beautiful mansions, vacationed in exotic places, attended Hollywood events … she loves that lifestyle and she is not giving it up.

    Ben got away with so many affairs. His luck ran out. He deserves all this public humiliation for being the cheating, arrogant lowlife that he is. His PR responses are making him look more like a fool and has everyone laughing at his stupid excuses.

  56. shi_gatsu says:

    I can chart his douchiness from a long time ago! The first hint was when the rumor hit that he cheated on Jlo with a stripper months before they were to be married. Then the Blake Lively topless pic scandal. Then his entitled smugness when he won Best Picture for Argo (I felt such a strong douche vibe from him when he didn’t win best director) Let’s not forget his terrible speech about his wife and marriage. Then his hand-picking of that blurred lines model for Gone Girl. Their sex scenes made me cringe. I felt repulsion for him, imagining what JGar must have felt watching that. Then the PBS scandal. Finally, this nanny business! Hahaha! I want to see him with his tail between his legs. May he never recover from this. He deserves ALL of the backlash!

  57. Jayna says:

    Ben, Stop with the nanny came to help you with your poker tournament lies and denial.

    Letterman was facing just not losing his family. He was facing losing his show if it came out but wouldn’t be blackmailed. He later admitted he should have been fired because he had been involved with younger interns or employees.

    The notoriously Letterman talks about it to Oprah, and the work he did on himself afterward. His honesty was refreshing. He really had to look inward.

  59. Diane says:

    This is so complex from the outside without all the facts! Grr!
    There are so many possibilities. Postulating is interesting. Reality is that these are real people and there are 3 adorable kids….
    I was struck in looking at the photos of the kids with Ben from the weekend. I noticed that the kids were clinging to Ben. In particular, the photo zooming in on Ben holding Samuel’s hand and Samuel kissing Ben’s hand. Also, where Samuel is sitting on Ben’s shoulders and gripping Ben’s head. That speaks to me of kids who miss having their Dad around much and who long for more of him. When they are around him, they want to cling to him. That’s a reality check for me to this whole mess.
    This man is an addict and I think his behavior is in great part driven from a messed-up thinking process. From gossip sites, including blind, his behavior has been in a steady spiral in particular for the past year or more specifically. His image is being ripped (his behavior is totally responsible), but I fear that the underlying cause of the behavior is very serious and probably life threatening.
    I do think he attached to the Nanny because of where his head is/was at the time. An addict feeds those needs. Also, I found living with one that for an addict to actually live with themselves (guilt and some level of conscience is somewhat inherent), their brains can actually twist the facts to make their behavior acceptable by blaming others for their behavior so that they can continue in the addition without? guilt. That kinda becomes a disassociation with loved ones because it is completely self serving.
    I don’t think he can think clearly right now. I think he may have done drugs in front of/with the nanny because he did trust her at some level during that time. He has surrounded himself for YEARS with people who never tell on him and he continued his behavior with her because I think in his mind she became part of that club.
    She planned from a long time ago what she wanted from this. She knew to get the pictures of them together, of the rings, the hotel sightings. She showed savvy in the planning and I think she is still working on her plan.
    I think she does have pictures of stuff, and knowledge of what he did in front of her. I think she is thinking she can continue to manipulate Ben to get whatever her ultimate goal is – now that’s the big ???. I think one of the comments in an article cited to a friend indicated she had the pictures made of them together because she wanted the world to know they were together. I think that’s a clue…could some part of her actually believe she can get that?
    I do believe he is still talking to her, because he’s a mess and isn’t thinking clearly. If he were not talking to her, I think she would already have blown this thing wide open.
    Ultimately, he’s an addict who is not making fully rational decisions, I think.
    ALSO, back to my pattern remarks previously. This is part of his pattern. He messes up, someone fixes it. He’s still in the pattern. Jen’s out and I think he is struggling with that change in the way things have always been.
    I could be completely wrong, but I don’t think he’s stupid. I also do not give this as an excuse for behavior such as he has committed because innocents are getting hurt badly. But, if you’ve ever been around an addict, they are just not capable of making good choices in that place.
    I don’t think Jen has anything to do with this. She would, IMO, never put her kids in this position just to hurt Ben. He wanted out and acted out. She’s been covering for years. She’s had to step back now because he forced her and she’s going to do whatever she can to protect her kids and her own reputation because she has to go on well for them.

  61. Whatever Gurl says:

    J Lo must be loving this.

    Remember Ben’s lament, how he hated the attention, his misery, how he blamed the media scrutiny all on her.

    And how J Lo was routinely called trash and how Ben is with the “right” Jen now?

    Karma. Truth always comes out eventually.

    • Blue says:

      Yes karma is a bitch. Too bad the “right” Jen wasn’t right enough for him. This chicka is exactly Affleck’s type. She reminds me of a younger version of Jlo.

    • Yes, karma for Ben! Ben’s image would have looked better had he gone back with JLo instead of hooking up with the children’s nanny. He could have done a sit down discussing how their marriage has been over for years and how he still loved JLo. Much easier to accept than the nanny. As far as the nanny is concerned, I think she has outplayed Ben. I like that a random is making him on edge.

      On a total different side note. Many moons ago when I was a flight attendant, Ben was known for being very friendly with the flight attendants. He would chat up the flight attendants in the galley, Mr. Cool. Not sure if he’s a member of the mile high club.

  62. loca says:

    Ben needs to stop denying and admit the truth. Also how come he didn’t say anything about the other photos meeting at his house at night. I’m sure Giselle wanted to make sure Tom Brady is noted as not cheating on her. This is so sick. You slept with the nanny just own it. And she isn’t going away that easily. Of course Ben has paid her off and probably used a third party so it can’t be tied to him.

  63. Jayna says:

    I swear I think she photoshopped her thighs in that airplane/rings photo. She has no thighs in that photo, unlike other photos.

    And here’s a new photo of Bunny Boiler out with her new ride. She is nothing compared to Jennifer Garner.

    “Ben Affleck’s former nanny took her brand-new Lexus convertible out for a spin Tuesday before meeting up with friends for lunch at Il Pastaio, E! News has learned. The 28-year-old drove with the top down to the Beverly Hills restaurant, where she grabbed lunch with two friends. An eyewitness tells E! News that Ouzounian sat outdoors while enjoying a glass of rosé with a salad.
    “Every so often she would stop talking so she could check her reflection in the outside window of the restaurant,” the eyewitness tells us. “She would then take a selfie of herself.”
    Ouzounian, who was wearing heels and makeup, was “acting as if she wanted to be seen,” the eyewitness adds, but unfortunately “no one else at the restaurant noticed who she was.” That didn’t stop her from having fun with her friends, though, as she finished three glasses of wine by the end of the meal.”

      3 glasses of wine – probably rules out pregnancy! Probably…

      • laura in LA says:

        Diane, we can only hope! I pity the baby born to this woman. Not to mention, that Lexus convertible is not very child-friendly.

    • Christin says:

      Just noticed — That is NOT a new Lexus IS. The grille is a pre-2014 model.

      • laura in LA says:

        Good catch, Christin! That was my first impression of the car, too, but I was too tired of her to look more into it. So, do we think it’s a rental then?

    • Kitten says:

      Good god she is thirsty.

    • laura in LA says:

      Yeah, the comparisons her “source” made with her to Jen G. full of shade were just pathetic and obvious, but this here, with checking her reflection and taking selfies, is hilarious!

      And it just goes to show that even as fake and superficial as those in Hollywood and especially Beverly Hills can be, this chick is fooling no one.

    Wow. Wow. WOW.

    Millenials scare me

  65. Lesa says:

    Either the affair is still ongoing and he is treating her like a queen or she is blackmailing him because she knows a lot of things about him or him and friends that she is holding over his head. If it was just a simple fling, he would just let the chips fall for a bit and then people would move on. So, either she knows lots of inflaming details or I guess the living it up could be in exchange for dropping little stories a day at a time. Likely scenario too. Ben may be no part of this big money she’s flaunting.

  66. Sparkly says:

    I don’t get people who think that any publicity is good publicity. This is not good for crazy chick or Affleck. Who’s going to hire her after this? Maybe a tabloid, if they get on her good side. I wouldn’t even hire her to work at McD’s at this rate.

    Even still, Ben has quite the life. Playing poker for charity? That’s like me slamming tequila shots for Betty Ford.

    • annaloo. says:

      I don’t think she’s looking for another nanny job after this. I think she’s looking to be a “name” by any means necessary

      • Sparkly says:

        Yeah, but if she’s under 30, she’ll need another job one day. I hope it bites her in the ass.

        If this is the type of lifestyle nannies-to-the-stars can afford (whether or not he’s actually paying her off, which is questionable), I totally need to be a nanny. I actually like kids and dislike cheaters. lol

  67. Christin says:

    I’m starting to think she is going budget to fool us. That car looked a bit ‘off’ to me, and the reason became clear in the article Jayna posted. The 2014 and 2015 IS models have a distinctive grille. Her car is a 2013 or older version.

    She’s spending her own (tabloid??) money, or else Batfleck went to the certified pre-owned event.

    • laura in LA says:

      Yep, I remember back in ’02 when I drove off the lot w/my CPO ’99 convertible, how great it felt! It was the one I thought I couldn’t afford and probably paid a bit too much for, but I bought it myself because I also had a fulltime job, decent salary and burgeoning career then.

      Since I doubt this chick got a loan, she probably paid at least $30k. So if she got 3 mos. severance, how much of that do you suppose she has left?

      (In the words of the great Shirley Manson of Garbage, “Stupid Grrrl…”)

      • Christin says:

        She didn’t take the dealer tag off the front! Maybe she got a discount for free advertising?

        Anyway, I think I found the car for $36K, with very low mileage. Assuming it is a 2013. Maybe she used tab money plus severance?

      • laura in LA says:

        Not sure what state you’re in, but cars here in Calif. drive around with dealer tags. No doubt, the nanny’s waiting for her vanity plates!

      • Christin says:

        Laura, my state doesn’t require a permanent front license plate. So yeah, some drive around with various front tags (usually a sports team – we’re in Southeast big college rivalry areas). However, I thought nanny would have pulled the front tag, as it’s a dealer advertisement.

        I compared pricing on what I think this car is, and it looks like $30K retail is the going price both in my area and in LA zip code.

  68. ann says:

    I hope Ben has had a vasectomy. If he hasn’t yet he should soon. His kid’s are still young and they will need nanny’s for at least seven more year’s. I don’t want to have to spend my summer reading about another nanny next year.

  69. Jayna says:

    Jennifer’s co-star on Miracles from Heaven is handsome. I hope she just lets go and has a passionate love affair with him while filming while Ben is left on his own dealing with his delusional bunny-boiler nanny who thinks they are still in a relationship.

    He’s a hunk and single. He has dimples too. She deserves some passion and fun.

    • Miss Melissa says:

      He is also short for a guy – they are about the same height. She seems to like them tall.

  70. Diane says:

    Pics from her prowl around town show her coming out of a house. Maybe the stay at the fancy hotel is over, too?

    • Jayna says:

      Uh, oh. The sources are drying up. She’s back home with mommy and daddy.

    • Christin says:

      E! is now reporting that she “was staying at the Hotel Bel-Air before moving into her own Los Angeles home.”

      She’s probably rented a place for a month or moved in with a friend, as she brings along her possibly fake bracelet and her two-year-old convertible that most media outlets assume is brand new.

  71. holly hobby says:

    At this point Ben just has to man up and admit he was boning the help. It’s not like he will receive censure for all eternity. Hollywood forgives infidelity (amazingly!). So yeah, he should just tell the press yeah I did it and I’m sorry. Total lapse in judgment. That way she can no longer hold him and his wallet hostage.

    I wish that short legged worm would just go away.

  72. Emily C. says:

    If I were in Jennifer Garner’s position right now, I’d be:

    1) Embarrassed I’d married and had children with such an utter dumbass. Cheating is one thing, it’s pretty much expected among rich and famous celebrities. But being this DUMB about it — eesh.

    2) Relieved I was no longer going to be married to such a dumbass, but afraid it was genetic and might be passed on to my children.

    3) Laughing my butt off. I mean, how could you stay upset at a man who is this much of a fool?

    It’s so rare that wealthy, powerful men reap what they sow. I kind of love the former nanny for doing this to him. (And I have no doubt that she’s doing it TO him, and on purpose.) Every other woman behaved herself and kept her mouth shut, which is the kind of thing that only enables rich and powerful men to keep getting away with their nonsense. This, however, is gold.

  73. candice says:

    You’d think that it would be the a-list Hollywood actress (Jennifer) who would be the self-involved and narcissistic one always taking selfies and posting images on social media – not the former nanny – but if anything, (unlike a lot of stars) Jennifer seems anti-social media and doesn’t seem overly concerned about her physical appearance. When she’s working, sure it’s all top-notch grooming, hair & make up, whatever the role requires, but irl, she’s pretty low-key.

  74. Betsy says:

    Well, everyone has covered it, so I’ll just say what I was thinking: orgy on the plane. Tom, Ben, whatever the nanny’s name is.

  75. ann says:

    Mile high club.

  76. stacey says:

    maybe he was kinda into her? enough to roll in the hay with her more than once.

    I think they were sleeping together and he fixated his focus on her (addicts can get so obsessive on things, people) so she thought he actually dug when he was just fixated his addict manic personality on her and she showered him with attention.

    I think he spilled some dirt on his crumbling marriage, details of his other affairs to her in some weak moments and she knows too much now.

    I think she’s playing hard ball now. He may have dumped her and isnt offering a big enough pay off (he’s arrogant- he probably thinks giving her some D was payment enough to her). She is slipping info to the tabs showing him she’s willing to tell all.

    He better pay up. I also think its not over yet between them. She’s grinning like the cat the got the canary, she’s managed to get in a power position over him. Look at her smile- no lawyer of his is threatening her with a cease and desist. No hint of stress on her face. I think he still wants to hook up with her.

    on the flip. jen looks increasingly pathetic with her wedding ring charade. That marriage is dead, girl. Let it die.

  77. iheartgossip says:

    I’m starting to believe she was the ‘femme’ during the Ben & Brady sexy time during Vegas. As long a female is there, it isn’t gay sex, right Ben?? Right??? Ugh.

  78. ellalter says:

    Tom Brady is cracking up to be quite the shady character, add hanging out with a married cheater and his girlfriend to his list, and he and Ben are friends, so yes, he knew the score (get it?). And very comfy they were too on that plane. That is not a selfie, someone took the photo, and she sure is guaranteeing a record that she and Affleck look connected, and she is loving the limelight. Maybe that’s what he didn’t like about his wife, she seems to like it more low key, this one wants to be out there. No more photos of him and a frumpy housewife, go Ben! Moron.

    • Ruckhappy says:

      Funny nobody thinks to ask why Brady is running around on private jets lending his rings out to bimbos when he should be in training camp at the moment.

  79. Trashaddict says:

    Ah for the old days. To quote Holly Golightly/Audrey Hepburn: “there are certain shades of limelight that can WRECK a girl’s complexion….”

  80. Diane says:

    So InTouch says friend claims Nanny bought the car with money Ben gave her and Ben is paying $10,000 mo rent on a house for her (no more poolside bikini shots). Another fun comment from the friend — that the important thing is to keep Christine from unraveling. I think we can agree.

    • Christin says:

      How the stories change. At one point, she had enough money to stay at the hotel three months.

      I think the money is severance pay (could have been three months’ pay to give her time to get another job). Could be why no party seems willing to address it first-hand, because employment termination details aired publicly could get sticky.

    • Jayna says:

      In Touch is almost never reliable.

  81. SillySimone says:

    Ok ladies and gents. While commenting on this thread, I have in short order actually developed a theory that makes sense to me and answers all of my nagging questions about this strange situation. It is really strange, right? It is just an affair, so what? Even with drugs, right? If she was paid off, then why is she still leaking photos and talking? If she is blackmailing Ben, the he can get the authorities involved and have her arrested. None of this makes any sense. It is like there is an elaborate campaign to make it appear as though this woman is of value and has information. All we have gotten thus far is an out of context photo with her on a plane… she is alone in the photo. The only other “proof” we have gotten is a stage pap where she is delivering wine. How this adds up to her having anything on him is beyond me, but what is clear is that she was already setting him up before the affair began and before the divorce was even decided upon.

    Think about this: she was already staging pap shots of herself (out of context) with Ben while she was working with that family and doing it all very fast (did she start in April?).

    People on here have mentioned that maybe Garner set him up by hiring the nanny. I don’t think for a moment this woman would destroy her kids and their relationship with their father. She is no Tori Spelling, willing to air all. She seems like a dignified woman and a good mother to me.

    But what no one else seems to have asked is this: could someone else have set him up? Remember all the blackmailing PIs and phone hackings that took down a bunch of tabloids in the U.K.?

    Could it be the tabloids? It could be. In fact, how could the tabloids get the amount of information about the billing and her charges at a hotel from a source working for a hotel KNOWN for their discretion? What celebrities would stay at a hotel leaking billing information?

    I am guessing that the people getting the bills are the same “sources” citing the spending habits of the nanny.

    Ben is a douche and easily led astray by a pretty face. But this is so nuclear and all out war like, that I cannot for the life of me understand why the tabs would be so willing to put up with a source who has offered them nothing of real value thus far?

    I say that whomever is paying for her hotel (and I am betting it is not Ben) is likely also responsible for placing this call girl (pretend nanny) in this position. For a nanny on only her second job, she strikes me as extremely crafty. Like call girl crafty!

    • lisa2 says:

      ITAW several of your points.. She is more like a Con Artist.. she set Ben up.. and played him and Jennifer. She could be working with someone else.. not hard to imagine. And yes it does look like she had a plan from the jump and DUMMY BEN feel for it.. I think she is an opportunist.. she saw that the marriage was ending and jumped in and worked on Ben’s ego. Stroking his ego; listening to his talk of distress; giving him emotional support. And he feel for it.

      I don’t know how far it went; but this chick is not pregnant; the Con doesn’t work that way. Just so unreal. I thought it was reported that she worked for Neil Patrick Harris.. why did that association end.. It would be interesting to know why

      • Jayna says:

        I think she is an opportunist and con-artist also. I even think she threw some emotional breakdown so Jen would send her back home from the Bahamas and did it it just so happened the night before or day Ben was leaving. I don’t believe Ben set that up, because she would have spilled that info. She has leaked in her stories to the press that she was very upset crying over an ex-fiance and Jen told her it wasn’t good for the kids and to go home. Ben was leaving for his charity event and offered her a ride. I believe the opportunist set that scenario up right at that time, saying she was too emotional to work, blah, blah, so she could go home and it would be right when Ben was leaving so she could be with him on that trip. Ben jumped on it being the horndog he is and offered her a ride as he was leaving.

        But I think she is a little conniving fame-ho who did see an opportunity early on with the dynamics of the family the way they were, the marriage falling apart. And I do believe once he knew she was selling stories about him he cut off all contact with her. He’s not that stupid. He knows any messages, e-mails, and/or texts she would use. Putting out there they are in constant contact is really bizarre and is what gives her the bunny boiler title.

    • KNOW-IT-ALL says:

      Delusions delusions Ben is the one behind this what info can she have on him that is not already out there.To think Ben Affleck is so niave is incredulous he did thos cheating thing with JLo now it is Jennifer Garner’s turn to get the heat.This is called gaslighting that is the only truth to thos whole story.Who else except Ben will give that girl a Lexus who in their right mind will instagram themselves with a lexus if they were not getting encouragements from their partner in crime.Ben says one thing and does another why are you all in denial about the truth.This is Ben doings end of story.He can say whatever he likes but clearly he is footing her bills and all this is done to undermine Jennifer Garner.His image over the past ten years have just being that an image this is the true Ben stop making excuses for him and blaming only the nanny it takes two to tango.

  82. Berenstein Bears says:

    Not to put the blame on Jennifer…but why would you allow a younger, attractive woman into your home to care for your family and kids. Sadly, more often than not, it doesn’t end well. Also, why would you allow your husband/mate/whatever to have an attractive secretary. The statistics are not on your side!

    • Jayna says:

      In this instance, especially, a marriage in trouble and on its last legs when the nanny was hired. No, I wouldn’t if I was going to be gone a lot for a few months on location and if my marriage was on the rocks and my husband, who is known to have a wandering eye, had cheated before, was going to be there with the nanny alone. What could go wrong? LOL

      My sister keeps saying, “What was she thinking, strained relationship on the brink of ending, probably bickering between them even long distance, and leaving Ben, of all people, home with a cute, young nanny?”

  83. ann says:

    Do you think Letterman could go to authorities about extortion because no drugs were involved in his situation?

    • SillySimone says:

      Most blackmail/extortion involves criminal behavior of some sort, which is why it is treated as a crime in itself. Partly, because someone is aware of criminal activity and rather than reporting it to the authorities, is profiting from it. Partly, because in some cases, the behavior involved is not criminal per se, but incredibly inappropriate. In any case, Ben was NOT selling drugs, which is a serious crime. Assuming there is a drug angle, at all, he was would be using drugs. So he still could go to the authorities. And even if the drug thing is true, who the hell cares? This is Hollywood after all. A stint in rehab and all is well again.
