    He seemed a little "off" to me. After seeing him on Bill Maher awhile ago I decided I didn't care for his real life persona. I give Jennifer a lot of credit for sticking it out this long.

    It sounds like they will make sure the kids are ok. Hope that holds true.

    I for on think that with all his addictions that Ben is a very miserable person.
    My heart hurts for the children and Jennifer but I truly feel that it's best that they not grow up in that environment.
    I've travelled that road of trying to save someone from their own addictions and saw firsthand the damage it does to the children.
    This is one Hollywood couple I was rooting for to make it for the long haul..
    I just don't think Ben can overcome his addictions and Jen has finally realized that she can't save him from himself...JMO

    What addictions? I've never heard he had any!

    In any event, they have three kids together. I feel people walk away from marriage too easily. Chasing the "excitement" of being free and having new relationships is not worth what divorce does to kids.

    I completely agree.. people get bored and get divorced.. IT is sad.

    I would not do this to my kids.. It would have to be something huge.

    There's been so much reporting on this that sadly, I am inclined to believe it as truth..... I don't want to believe it , as I am one who loves Ben.....

    Giana, I have been pulling for Jen and Ben to make it...there are so many reports of his having fallen off the wagon and drinking again, and then last year he got banned from the casino for counting cards and was reportedly drinking when that incident happened...I hope it's not true , but so many reports of his gambling, drinking and other vices lead me to believ it is true.
    In any event , like most , I find it incredibly sad for the three beautiful children.
    I do believe it must be big as Jennifer obviously adores him and has stated as late as last year that ..."I'd do anything for that man " ....I sincerely hope that they can work it out and beat the odds of a "Hollywood marriage " !

    On the new Barefoot Contessa special that aired this morning on Food Network, Ina Garten visits Jennifer Garner to cook with her on her birthday. Not sure when the episode was filmed, but JG is still wearing a wedding ring and mentions that her children are in school. If you're a Jennifer Garner fan and didn't see Barefoot in L.A., it will air again tomorrow at 10:00AM (Eastern).

    ETA: Quick check of IMdB and found that Jennifer Garner's birthday is April 17 (1972), so the show was probably filmed around that time in L.A.

    I suspect much more will come out about this relationship. In all the photos I am seeing of the nanny Christine she looks like the cat that swallowed the canary and as if she doesn't have a care in the world. She appears to be gloating over the fact that she most likely contributed to the disintegration of this marriage. I predict either (a) Ben Affleck is stupid enough to continue to hook up with this vapid young woman; or (b) she will sue for sexual harrassment if he doesn't continue on with her; or (c) out of spite she will file an lawsuit over her termination. Watch for it!

    I believe she thinks this was her ticket to tinseltown. Good luck with that - she certainly will never work as a nanny again, unless it is for a single father - LOL! (Admittedly, she is pretty.)

    I think the nanny is naive to think Ben will stop with her---once he gets his divorce papers---he will want a taste of freedom. The nanny is cute, but stubby/short & nothing compared to the bevy of beauties that will be throwing themselves at him. Ben will entertain as much "excitement" as he possibly can, iykwim?!
    Heck, Tom got a supermodel...let's see what Ben lands in a year. This nanny will soon be "Gone Girl"!

    I give credit to Jen for trying but Ben has been a bad boy for a long time...gambling, drinking, partying. I'm sure very draining for her.

    He used to be very good friends with actor Matt D but I don't see them photographed together anymore. Maybe Matt doesn't need those late night outs since he is married now (I believe).

    I've always seen a resemblance to Ben and the notorious murderer Sc*tt Peters*n!
    Anyone else see the resemblance?

    Anyways....the camera loves Ben

    The Marla Mapleses of the world will always believe that they are "special", that what they offer is "different" and that what they have will always be enough to keep their cheater from ever cheating on THEM. Until they get "better dealed".

    That said, spitting out the spawn of said cheaters with fat pocketbooks can prove to be a rather lucrative business.

    The moral of the story, kiddies, is that when you cheat with a rich guy, make sure you get knocked up or get a legal financial agreement. Because, sure, he loves you. Until you have that baby (meal ticket). And maybe not even that long.

    Ladies; men can be fat, hairy, old and incontinent and still get young, "hot" women because they are rich and powerful.

    Women, OTOH, are no longer of use when they age, are no longer fertile, regardless of their personal accomplishments or gifts.

    Thankfully, my perspective is not from personal experience (so far, crossing fingers), but from reading stories like this and from too many friends and acquaintances who have become "obsolete" like a car.

    Why keep a dependable, classic model with beautiful lines when you can afford the newer model with all of the bells and whistles? That way nobody will question the size of your......um.....assets.

    Oh Ben, you fool. Girls like this are a dime a dozen in L.A. She's showing her true colors now.

    Does anyone else find it extremely odd (and pathetic) that Tom Brady travels with all his Super Blow rings? How weird is that?

    I think Jen will be the winner in many ways at the end of the day!

    I have to wonder what Giselle's thoughts about the nanny on the vegas trip might be.
