Ben Affleck takes his kids to the farmer’s market with their nanny

Ben Affleck takes his children to the Farmers Market
Above is a photo of Ben Affleck at the farmer’s market on Sunday in LA with his kids and a woman I presume is a nanny. (I think we’ve seen her before but I’m not sure.) He looked happy and upbeat and in some photos he’s even smiling. Affleck is wearing a Sirius Black t-shirt featuring Gary Oldman in character, which he presumably got at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter during his visit to the theme park last week.

On Friday Ben, his estranged wife Jennifer, and their kids were seen out walking their new dog in Atlanta. You can see the photos on The Daily Mail. The family looked happy, and Ben was smiling, which is rare for him when the paparazzi are around. This is thought to be a concerted effort to shift the media narrative after the whole nanny debacle, and it’s working somewhat.

The Boston Herald has a pretty thoughtful editorial about how frustrating this must be for media-obsessed Ben, who has repeatedly said how annoyed he was by the tabloid coverage surrounding his breakup with Jennifer Lopez. Ben has admitted that Garner turned his image around, and he’s got to see how leaving her is putting it in jeopardy again. I wonder if these two are going to actually file for divorce at some point, or if they’ll get back together. They’re doing these family outings and they’re both wearing their wedding rings. All of this seems to be a sign that they’re still considering their options.

Meanwhile the nanny, Christine Ouzounian, continues to wear ridiculous outfits for the paparazzi. Check out her latest on Sunday, it’s a tiered ruffled off the shoulder crop top paired with cutoff distressed jean shorts and tennis shoes. She takes casual fug to a new level. On Friday Ouzounian wore skinny jeans and a track jacket and then on Saturday she was in a white sleeveless dress with a belt and sandals. She’s really enjoying this, you can tell.

TMZ reports that an adult film company has offered Ozounian a million dollars to play Batman in a Batman vs. Superman p0rn parody. I don’t think she’ll take the role, but she loves luxury goods. Affleck better throw some more money at her just in case.

    haven’t we seen enough of this nanny already? The Afflecks need to stop with this parade of pretense that everything is hunky dory but they’re getting divorced.

    • Christin says:

      The more they get papped on their weekend outings, the more opportunity for her to get her photos included. It fuels her fire.

    • Lori says:

      I don’t think they are getting divorced. I’m betting the only reason they are going thru with this seperation charade is because the nanny forced them into it by going public. They will “work” thru it and be back together in time for Xmas. You watch.

      • bondbabe says:

        Yeahhhh…that is what I’m thinking too. The “bad” nanny (the “Ouzer”) forced the marital woes to publicly come to a head, Ben/Jen regrouped because–“think of the children” and the “bad PR.” Now Ben/Jen will reorganize to make a “reassessment of their marriage” and get back together.

      • KellyBee says:

        If that’s true and it’s pretty s***** of both of them to use their kids like that to save Ben image. I think they won’t be prepared for the backlash they would get for this stunt, and people question Jens happy family image then on.

      • Luca76 says:

        Nah I think he really,really wants out. The whole thing has blown up in his face for sure but I don’t think there is anyway he’s going to stay married when he’s this close and the worst of the scandal is behind him. I think they aren’t filing until they get the financial stuff hammered out.

      • InvaderTak says:

        I think he really does want out but I think they’re both too wrapped up in the facade. Whatever is really going on it’s annoying already.

      • Beatrice says:

        I think he’d really, really like to be out, too, but still hang on to some shred of a good reputation. Since that isn’t likely he and Jen will likely stay together in some sort of a charade marriage to save face and the “brand”. Using the kids as props in the endless “happy family” pap strolls is disgusting. I can’s stand either of them now.

    • laura in LA says:

      Since the world saw those stressed photos from The most Hellish Place on Earth (to be in August when you’re divorcing and in the middle of a media sh*tstorm), I think Ben is looking genuinely happy…

      Happy that maybe Jen agreed to postpone filing (though I think she’ll do it by next spring) while continuing on as planned, and happy that one of their normal nannies is back.

      He’s probably also happy that the imposter nanny (whose name we all hope to forget) has been silenced – and now reduced to the to-be-expected offers of porn, which if that’s all she’s got means no more boring, bad fashion pap walks.

      And for that, we can all be happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Wentworth Miller says:

      Every time I see her, I think of a mom who’s trying to look cool by wearing her daughters clothes.

  2. Nicolette says:

    Is her 15 minutes up yet?

  3. Katie says:

    This is going to backfire so spectacularly!

  4. Kiddo says:

    The new nanny looks like the old nanny with a little more weight.

    • Tilly says:

      Especially pre-the-scandal … Nanny Ouzenwhateverhernameis looked very similar – and dressed down – like this.

    • bettyrose says:

      MTE! I stopped by the comments hoping no one would be mean about the new nanny, but we’re better than that here. I’m sure she’s taking some abuse on other threads but I won’t look.

    • kcarp says:

      I thought the “new” nanny looked like the “old” nanny’s mother or something. So ya I can see that.

      I hate Ben Affleck less when he wears a Harry Potter shirt. You can’t be all bad if you can appreciate Harry Potter. I am biased my daughter’s middle name is Gryffin.

  5. Mia4S says:

    OK now I know I’m bored with these people; my only thought while reading this article was shouldn’t a Batman vs. Superman parody porn be gay porn? Or will they go the threesome route?

    Yep that’s all I’ve got, I’ll see myself out.

    • Starrywonder says:

      Hey I went there too. Maybe she’s playing Wonder Woman or that’s the role they offered.

      Also Nanny looks busted and now I am going to hold up my deal to ignore any articles that reference her hot mess. My mistake thinking this was just an Affleck article.

    • bettyrose says:

      I was thrilled yesterday when I saw her pr0n offer on jezebel. As I said on a previous thread #Americandream. If she can make some quick cash on a trumped up scandal, literally anyone can.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      I think if they are really offering her 1M, she might bite. We all know what happened for Kim K after dropping her knickers for the camera. This could be Kim K 2.0.

  6. NYer says:

    Quick lesson on maintaining one’s “image”: don’t be a d*ck, don’t act like an a**hole, and don’t shtup the nanny.

    There. Problem solved.

  7. kri says:

    HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA. Tht ruffled top!! What did she do..demand Affleck call Charo (soorry Michael K) and ask for outfit loans?! OMG, I am thinking Jen Garner is the reincarnation of Wellington, cause her battlefield tactics are nothing short of genius. Holy crap. She has reigned in the Batpeen. Is it possible?!!!

    • annaloo. says:

      We sold those tops at Contempo Casuals forever ago.

      Now, if the nanny tries to make the stirrup pant and bubble necklaces happen …

    • Sunny says:

      Jen Garner has sick PR game! I remember a few weeks ago when the nanny was being snapped in a bikini and Jennifer was visiting sick children. She is definitely winning the PR battle.

      I tend to believe the Affleck’s are really done. They look pained in photos together. I think that Jen was fine/knew about Affleck’s wondering peen and was fine with it and continuing to play happy family until the latest few nightmares. I had a family member in a similar situation- knew her husband was not 100% faithful and was willing to put up with it/forgive it when it was far from home and her children. When he cheated with one of the kids’ teachers that was too much of a line crossed to recover from.

      In the case of the Affleck’s the rumours of Ben’s fall off the recovery wagon and active drug use may have some merit.

  8. The Original G says:

    Good God Ben. Stay home!

    And, puleeeease don’t insult us with fat nanny. (Not saying she’s fat or unattractive, just saying she seems to have come from central casting as an andidote nanny.) See! You can trust me with her!

  9. Christin says:

    Is ex-nanny getting released from jail in that one photo? What a background!

    Maybe she should hire a stylist with any leftover severance pay (if there is any left).

    Lastly, Ben got the memo to ๐Ÿ˜Š. I now think they will stay with the status quo until his big movie release.

  10. Shambles says:

    I really love his t-shirt, and I hate him for making me love his t-shirt.

    • Lauren II says:

      Ben looks much happier when Jen isn’t around. He actually looks sexy here and well rested. Kids look happy too.

      Ben will remain a big Hollywood player, and Bratz doll nanny will be forgotten.

  11. Tilly says:

    I thought the Daily Fail’s article on how Nanny Ouzwhateverhernameis is dressing “exactly like” Jennifer Garner was hilarious – they never let small details such as the white dresses each wore were in no way similar, or that Nanny wore a denim jacket but Jennifer wore a denim shirt – and years apart – get in the way of a good story!

    I still don’t understand why people are saying she’s fat – she’s definitely not. She has a normal figure and looks fine. I don’t even think her fashion is that bad – she looks like everyone else – maybe I’m looking at different pictures. Another thing I disagree on – the Daily Fail keeps reporting her as being ‘blonde’ – no way! – she’s definitely a brunette.

    Another thing …
    Entertainment Tonight said that she is refusing to say anything (but they did show her saying ‘No Comment’ when a reporter asked if it’s true she’s pregnant with Ben’s baby), and Ben has denied they had an affair (although he’s not a particularly reliable source), so where is the actual story here? It seems to be going on and on, leaving us in suspense for what exactly? … I still smell a rat; something strange is happening here. Jen has been trying to (unsuccessfully) plug her own ‘lifestyle / talk’ show but I don’t think that’s it.

    • Kitten says:

      I have almost the exact same hair color as her. I’m a brunette, more specifically, a brunette with highlights.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I don’t usually comment on people’s weight, but I do see why people are calling her fat. I wouldn’t say she’s fat, but she’s thick and has no waist. She doesn’t know how to dress for her figure, so I think in several pictures she looks…not thin.

    • Erica_V says:

      The first thing I thought with the cropped ruffled top is “Someone is trying to drum up more covers with some preggo rumors.”

    • Yeah, I have to say I think that if she actually wore more flattering clothes (as in not things that look like they came from forever 21 petite department), she wouldn’t be getting the “fat” tome quite as much.

  12. Ravensdaughter says:

    Of note: Ben is going with the new nanny, not the ‘ho.

    Haven’t seen pics of little Sam lately. He’s a cutie!

    Wow, Violet looks like her mom in that profile pic.

  13. Allie says:

    As a peasant, I just don’t understand why Ben needs to bring a nanny to the market with his children. He’s incapable of watching his children on his own? I get the purpose of a nanny when your children are young and you’re traveling a lot, but these kids aren’t that young anymore and it’s just crazy to me that Ben needs an extra set of eyes for what I’m sure was only a few hours with his children.

    • The Original G says:

      Yes. Good point.

      And…how is it that they feel that they are protecting the children while pap walking them constantly?

    • K 2 says:

      I suspect when you have guaranteed pap attention, and some may be verbally aggressive and physically intrusive, you don’t want any kid there who hasn’t an adult within hand-holding distance. He only has two hands.

      • The Original G says:

        Well, I suspect when you have guaranteed pap attention, snd some may be verbally agressive and physically intrusive, that you go elsewhere.

        He’s in the MIDDLE of a nanny scandal. How tone deaf can you be?

      • Tammy says:

        Why are we assuming anything from the photos above…………………….if you look at some of the other comments down the thread here this is the former nanny.. still think he’s tone deaf????

      • The Original G says:

        TOTALLY. Why takes your kids on a pap stroll to make a point about your new/old nanny at all? Pa the tic. Why subject your kids to more of this conversation?

    • grumpy bird says:

      I don’t think it means he’s incapable of watching his kids, it’s always nice to have an extra set of hands. But given his current situation it was definitely an odd choice to go for a pap stroll with the nanny.

    • laura in LA says:

      Well, if you were Ben and had to spend the weekend doing stuff you used to find boring, you’d probably want someone else there to keep you company – or awake?

      “Ben spent the whole weekend focused on the kids,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They all seemed to have a fun weekend. Ben took them on several outings and looked happy.”

      “The schedule included an afternoon visit to Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts on Saturday, where Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, picked up “We Made It” kits from Garner’s children’s craft line.”

      Haha! He’s definitely playing along with the PR program now.

      • Christin says:

        Well how nice that they included a plug for her newly launched craft kits.

        This weekend, they will go shopping for Batman merchandise. (Eye rolling)

    • megs283 says:

      Came here to say the same thing. If he’s worried about their safety, why don’t they have a bodyguard instead of a nanny?

  14. Merritt says:

    That white crop top looks like something that would have been worn on the original “Beverly Hills 90210”.

    • ncboudicca says:

      personally, i am seeing Britney Spears in her days of endless Starbucks and barefoot trips to gas station restrooms…

    • MadMenluv says:

      yeah, Brenda had a top exactly like that! or was it Donna??? I even remember it in the opening credits

  15. Kelly says:

    She’s working the Gwyneth Paltrow smug face.

  16. Neah23 says:

    My god Ben game is so transparent and predictable and so is his usage of the kids and his estranged wife.

    Which even poster said that the new nanny look like a heavier version of the old nanny was spot on.

  17. OhDear says:

    The (former) nanny better do something interesting soon; her 15 minutes are almost up.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      Let’s hope they are up quickly….if I have to see one more picture of her smug face and fug outfits, just walking around, I’ll scream!!!!! I don’t understand why everyone thinks Ben bringing the kids to the farmer’s market is a ploy. They have been going there forever. Violet is the spitting image of Jen Garner, Seraphina looks more like Ben, and Sam looks like Matt Damon! hmmm…that could be the real story here!!!!!!!

      • Diane says:

        Sam’s chin dimple is pretty definitive though, I think. Hahaha

      • Neah23 says:

        Just because they been going to the Famers Market for years doesn’t mean it’s not a ploy. That Famers Market is a paparazzi hotspot and has been for years celebrity and attention seekers know that if you want to be seen this is one of the places to go, the Grove and Mr. Bones pumpkin patch are two others.

  18. Jenna's Snark says:

    That is definitely their old nanny. She was employed by them for years, going back to when Violet was a baby. However a few months ago she disappeared and they’ve gone through a cycle of nannies ever since (including Christine). I wonder if they begged her to come back as she was their longtime nanny who they clearly trust because it’s odd she is randomely back out of nowhere unless she just took an extended leave of absent for whatever reason

  19. Melly M says:

    I don’t believe that Ben has paid the nanny off. Why wouldn’t he make sure in their agreement that she has to disappear?
    If reality TV isn’t interested in her now, they won’t be after her xxth pap walk either.
    So maybe she really just enjoys to be photographed and makes some money with the pictures.

  20. Saywhatwhen says:

    I see you, Ben. Eyeing new nannies awesome curves. Eyes forward and pants zipped, sir.

  21. Ana says:

    The lady with Ben is the old nanny they have had for years. She disappeared in April when Ben started parading around his fameho nanny. This nanny is Jen’s nanny since kids were younger.

  22. funcakes says:

    What I’ll fitting outfits. Someone should explain to her she is not a six foot, size 0 model.

  23. Tara says:

    Funny. Ben looks desparate for for new/old nanny’s approval.

    • KellyBee says:

      I think he more desperate for the public “approval”. It’s very obvious that his PR people read these blogs someone told him to stop looking so miserable and smile and he has in the last few pictures.

      These pictures are a cry of Look see Jen trust me to be out with nanny and not fool around, I’m not a douchebag who sleeps with my kids nanny.

      • Tara says:

        Ha — Yeah, I think you’re right KellyBee. My only fun in re: Ben is watching him squirm.

  24. ell says:

    am i the only thinking the nanny ben cheated with isn’t all that? she’s kinda shortish and average looking.

    lmao ben is so thirsty.

    • Annie says:

      Of course she’s not all that. Those bikini pics show just how average she really is. The fact that men continue to cheat on their wonderful, loyal, beautiful wives with skanks that literally are nothing special at all will always baffle me. Not that cheating on someone gorgeous is less bad, but you kinda understand why someone might be tempting to a man. But this girl? She has LA SOCIAL CLIMBER written in her forehead. Ben is an idiot.

  25. anne_000 says:

    I just came here to have a look at this other nanny.

    Still too young. They should hire an older woman, about Ben’s mom’s age.

    • grumpy bird says:

      I don’t think it’s fair to discriminate based on age. Being older doesn’t automatically make you trustworthy and being younger doesn’t mean you completely lack morals.

      • anne_000 says:

        I’m saying I don’t trust Ben with young women.

      • grumpy bird says:

        I know that, but what I’m trying to say is that an affair takes two people. Ben might be a cheating ass but that doesn’t mean she is – just because he wants to sleep with her doesn’t mean he gets to.

      • anne_000 says:

        I’m not saying she’ll agree to an affair.

        I’m saying I wouldn’t trust him to keep himself to himself around young women.

      • grumpy bird says:

        Yeah there are a number of things I wouldn’t trust Ben around! But I don’t think it’s fair for a nanny to lose out on a job just because he’s a dog.

        Compromise: a young nanny to keep up with the kids, an older nanny to supervise Ben (preferably one that scares the bejesus out of him).

  26. Jas says:

    He must have been reading the comments about moobs and misery because he’s wearing a tshirt that fits and is smiling (albeit uncomfortably). Last week I was wondering whether they really want this attention (although it’s going in a direction they don’t want) or whether they just have the worst publicists in the world. I reckon they want it. They’re still playing around with the rings, playing united family, staying in the limelight…. They need to stop trying to control everything and move on but they don’t want to.

    I wish people would leave the current staff alone, they’re private people doing their jobs and it’s not fair for their appearance to be commented on.

    As for the nanny, she should take the porn offer, she’s not going to get anything else. She’s going to run out of her tabloid money soon and she obviously doesn’t have any more to sell because we would have seen it already if she had. I think she’s realising that she’s not going to be a reality star, she’s looking a lot less smug. Her delusions are hopefully being shattered. No group of men are going to vie for her on a TV show, they’re not going to introduce ‘the former nanny who claims she slept with Ben Affleck’ on dancing with stars, that’s ridiculous. I wonder how aware of that she is yet?

  27. Diane says:

    I’m curious to see what is Nanny’s reaction to the porn offer. Outrage or flattered? If she is offended, how will she strike back and what will that look like? If she’s flattered, and accepts, that will forever tie her and BA together via film implications – putting a little shade on BA as batman. How serious could he really be taken in that role after that – that mocking of him would just be out there? An interesting development.
    As to BA, he’s clearly taken note of each and every comment/post and is going down the checklist to “correct” those items. Yep, not real – we’ll see how long until the stories start of his other activities.
    An interesting thing I found about gambling addicts. All they need is the immediate gratification of appearing to do the right thing. There’s no substance to it, but they don’t need that. All they need to know is that it looks good on the surface. Without serious correction of the underlying issues, the behavior will start up again. They actually believe their own lies.

    • Jayna says:

      She’s flattered by any attention that puts her name out there and gets her some more Z-list attention. That’s how fame-hos are.

  28. kai says:

    I want his t-shirt and I’d watch a Superman/Batman porn parody. That’s all.

  29. darlene says:

    So you’re in the middle of a Nannyf*er scandal and you choose to get pap’d drooling into the face of another nanny, while strolling with your kids on a family outing?!? Do you not know that the only photos of you genuinely laughing and smiling are with nannies?
    Duh, Ben, and your worthless pr team, sit down. Just sit down, you aren’t doing this right.

    • Tammy says:

      Someone mentioned above it’s their former nanny….lol at some of you.

    • word says:

      How is he “drooling” in her face? He’s trying to talk to her about something…you can see he’s grasping his daughter’s hand and telling the nanny something. There is NOTHING wrong with this pic. Actually, no there is something wrong…the fact the children’s faces are being show is HORRIBLE. They shouldn’t be pap’d.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      I think it’s more of a performance — as in, “See? I’m friendly will ALL our nannies! It doesn’t mean anything.”

  30. Kerry says:

    Is anyone friends with @roma ?

    I want to hear info on my/the other Boston boy: Mark Wahlberg. Anyone have ANY info on him ??

    Any at all???

  31. Luca76 says:

    Anyone read Lainey today? Basically solved her obvious blind about Jen Garner’s inability to get a talk show gig

    • JoJo says:

      Luca76 – I did read that! I thought it was kind of interesting/strange that Jen would push a talk show. And I know I’m on the minivan MINORITY because while I do like Jen, I’ve also always gotten the feeling that there’s a little bit of snobbery there, which I think is offputting to some people – hence, Lainey’s ref in the blind about producers canning the idea based on her being too “uppity.”

    • KellyBee says:

      At first I was like no I’m not seeing it but the more I think about it I can so see Jen wanting her own talk show.

  32. skippy says:

    I’m sure it’s just my imagination running away with me…but in that picture it looks like Ben is scoping out the new nanny….

  33. Telicity says:

    These nanny pics make me never want to wear skinny jeans again. -.-

  34. Jayna says:

    Nanny-girl, it’s over. Daily Mail is trying to keep you alive with your outings for take-out and getting gas, but there’s nothing of interest here. Bye-bye.

  35. JoJo says:

    This is all so absurd. I agree and have said FROM THE BEGINNING, I will be surprised if Ben and Jen divorce anytime soon.

    The reality is that the nanny is just an unintentional red herring – i.e. by all accounts Ben and Jen, have had major problems and have been very unhappy for years. But with this fiasco hitting so close to home, it suddenly has become “all about the nanny”, as if that’s their only problem, just a blip that they’ll overcome. i think it has left Jen humiliated and wanting to show the nanny and the world that Ben is still hers/theirs, and on his end, Ben is running back to his familiar safe zone. They’re acting like the nanny is their only problem when they’ve been out of synch and in trouble for years. My guess is they won’t split now, they’ll pretend to get on with their lives, but we’ll see once the novelty period – the adrenaline rush of the challenge – wears off. There’s no possible way Jen trusts him now, and that’s going to make her even more distrustful and controlling (even if deserved), and that’s going to grate on their marriage even more.

    • Diane says:

      Yea, it’s easy to see he is running back to the safe zone. I really, really hope Jennifer gets healthy here and puts her self esteem and the kids’ wellbeing and stability before celebrity and success. Even if she was (on the surface) to go back to that situation, it can never go back to what it was in the public perception. That cover is well and truly blown. I also believe the backlash on her would be greater than she could ever recover from in terms of image, either. She would lose an immense amount of public respect – particularly from the minivan moms. How sad that this whole thing is being talked about (including me) like it’s a scripted reality show. I think that’s how it’s been sold for years though, and that is being blown wide open. Remember the ending to The Truman Show? I hope Jennifer walks free as well into the real world outside the bubble.

  36. word says:

    Why should we care what the former nanny is wearing? Please please please don’t make her a celebrity ! She needs to go away now…right now.

  37. Bread and Circuses says:

    I admit, I like Ben a little better for wearing a Harry Potter tshirt. I’m shallow like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Jayna says:

    So their old nanny either took an extended break and was always coming back when the new school year started, or after the nannygate experience, Jen begged her back with a huge pay raise.

  39. MadMenluv says:

    Why is the new/old nanny carrying all the shopping bags??? Jeez Ben lend a hand!

  40. Qat says:

    Those children are adorable!!

  41. TW says:

    Perhaps they’re uniting through the nanny’s lawsuit. I don’t think a spouse has to testify against the other if called to.

  42. Crystal says:

    She looks pregnant in the white crop top…

  43. mommy 2b says:

    Another excuse to use the nanny pics, can’t let them go to waste.

    Hot guy. Daddy. Mmmmhhhhmmmm….

    All I want to know is, how does she keep her chucks so clean?

  46. Nicole says:

    Say what you want about them and their marriage, but they did make some freaking beautiful kids. Oh, and congrats to celebitchy for some epically epic click baity titling. I mean, I knew what I was gonna find when I clicked, but I couldn’t not click.

    Christine is starting to look like a stalker because those denim shorts look exactly like ones Jen wore. People mentioned it before and it was hard to believe but this is just too creepy. Fatal Attraction 2.

      Every second girl in LA has those shorts on. Jennifer garner is hardly a style icon.

      They won’t divorce because they’re both full of crap. Ben has been a cheater all his life but this makes it look like he only did it this once with the nanny and Jennifer kicked him out thus showing the world she has some self respect but will take Ben back because he’s changed his ways blah blah and she’ll be the amazing woman who kept the family together. Just wait for it.

      I couldn’t care less about ouzoniaishsksbs but if Ben lead her on acting like he would get a divorce and that he loves her like she was telling her friends, he’s a jerk and the world needs to know. And I believe he did tell her he loves her because before this all even happened somebody was saying on Twitter something along the lines of “Ben Affleck is getting divorced and the other woman is called Christine” long before anyone knew this nanny’s name and the story broke so I totally believe it. Too bad she can’t spill.

      If he wants her to go away like the Ben & Jen united against nanny BS suggested it’s only because he’s screwed. Keep her around I say and keep Ben squirming…and better yet, paying!

        Agreed about Ben and Jen. This is exactly what I’ve been saying too. They’ve now shifted their narrative to make it seem like it was just this one time, this “annoying stalker nanny who won’t go away,” and they’re going to unite against her and once again keep the family together at all costs. And they’re hoping to come out looking like the Hollywood supercouple they believe they were before. When in reality, it wasn’t just about “the nanny” at all. That was just the final straw, the one that blew up publicly. Again, this whole thing is way too muh like Gone Girl, including the end. Where two highly dysfunctional people end up staying together. Except now I’m not sure any of us will believe that it’s “happily” ever after, despite the smiles they’ll be sure to show on their pap walks.

    Wait, they haven’t even filed for divorce yet? Is this a giant pap walk?

      There was also Twitter talk when he was filming in Detroit about him being at the Casino one night (I am sure there were more) and there was a blonde with him that was half his age. Maybe it was her and it started a lot further back than just recently. Maybe he was introduced to her by Neil Patrick Harris when they were both filming Gone Girl and it started then and he managed to keep it on the down low then convinced Jen to hire her when they needed a Nanny and said she came highly recommended by NPH and Jen innocently bought into it. Although I am not sure who he was seen in Nova Scotia with, that has never come out. The way this is being portrayed is that its the first time and only time he cheated on Jen which I don’t think is the case!

    They just need to go away. Jennifer has never been particularly talented and there are people with more talent in a fart than Ben has in his whole body.

    Ben was not good in Gone Girl. He was just playing himself. Good actors play characters.

  53. JoJo says:

    Multiple outlets are reporting today that Ben has finally ditched his wedding ring, including on an outing with his youngest daughter. I say, good, rip off the band aid, end the charade and move on with their lives. Maybe he’s finally realized, spending so much time alone with the kids this week, that the rings don’t matter at all in terms of showing them he loves them and will be there for them. Maybe shows a final decision between him and Jen as well. I honestly think this is the best move at this point, even from a PR standpoint (even though I hate to say that), but by continuing the happy family charade, they’re just prolonging the media attention and speculation, etc.
