Blind Items Revealed #1

August 22, 2018

That sobriety thing is out the window right now for this permanent A list mostly movie actor who is an Academy Award winner/nominee. He called his now former public girlfriend more of a sober coach than girlfriend. He is back on the booze now in a big way.

Ben Affleck (and then six hours after this blind, the news broke he was headed back to rehab)

Guesser said...

Was he ever really sober? He detoxed,but never went to rehab,he was seen in dirty clothes and was said to be drinking in public a couple of times here and elsewhere.

BestMan said...

You all like to trash Jen, but she begged and drove him there. She did it for their kids. That's a good mom.

Tricia13 said...

I’m pretty sure he went to Passages in Malibu (thoughtbtgat was a treatment center), but for how long no clue..
I don’t like the guy much but don’t like seeing the struggle either-he seems to be devoted to his kids. Hopefully,he can get it this time .

Tricia13 said...

I like Jen Garner.
Not sure what there is to dislike really?

Ophelia said...

Same Tricia. I like her too. Some of the things that she does are clearly publicity stunts but a lot of her money now comes from advertising so for both ad jobs and acting jobs she has to try to stay relevant somehow.

At least she's staying relevant while being a seemingly devoted mother and not on a drug fueled rampage.

Tricia13 said...

That’s what I think../ plus she was great in DAllaa Buyers Club.Had a career before him and still

LooksLikeCRicci said...

I've always been Team Jen. She may be crazy or whatever, but it seems to me like she puts her kids first and is doing what she can to help Ben be a good dad.

I can respect the heck out of that.

DDonna Tarttty said...

I used to like Garner much more than I do now, but of course she's better than her disgusting husband.

MsDrtMover said...

Alcoholism sucks...my stepson had an issue with alcohol. One week after he got out of rehab, March 24th to be exact, he committed suicide. He was my husband's only son, and now my husband is heart broken. Life will never be the same.....

Neal M said...

Eh, I didn't see anyone trashing Jen. Not sure where that came from.
But truth be told she married the guy when he was at his predatory worst, running with Harvey W etc. Everyone in Hollywood knew what he was at that point and she practically trampled over his victims to marry him. So let's not pretend she is some saint. If he was just some struggling waiter/actor living in Long Beach instead of a loaded A lister... well you get the point.
I do give her credit for leaving him, and sad to see his little manipulative ploy here is sucking her back in. I give credit to the Phoenix girl for leaving his scumbag brother as well. I wonder what shenanigans he has up his sleeve?

LooksLikeCRicci said...

I'm sorry for your loss, MsDrtMover.

Mrs Meat said...

Oh come, come. Anyone with eyes in their head can see that's John Candy sitting in that car with Garner. She's got a nerve digging up his corpse just for media attention.

Ophelia said...

MsDrtMover, I'm so so sorry for your loss <3

Tiger Lilly said...

My heart breaks for them. They were so cute together and Jenny still loves him a lot. My girl JLo dodge a bullet though.

nancer said...

the only thing bad i've ever said about jennifer garner is that she's a shitty actress. which she is. as far as a mother and a wife, i don't see how anyone can criticize her. she could have been done with this guy a long time ago, but because he's her kids' father, she's hung in there and tried to help him get better. can't fault her for that.

ComeTheApocalypseI'mInCharge said...

He always said that when he was off his head he totally loses his inhibitions. He said that if ever he woke up one morning next to a dead hooker, first thing he'd do would be to call Matt Damon. He messed up with JLo and Goop. Then came Jen, kids and sobriety and professional success. Then came New Yoik, SNL and Shookus and head first into addictions again. I totally thought Shookus had something on him fit him to keep her around. Now this implosion and Garner packing him off to rehab.... mark my words, there's more dirt to be dished yet. More than ashes under a Phoenix,

Brayson87 said...

Relapse is a part of recovery. There is no cure for addiction. If you know someone who is sober, know they're going to use again. Unless they die first of course. It's how they and others deal with the relapse that is important. Far better to treat it as just another step than the end of the world every time.

Neal M said...

It isn't Shookus' fault anymore than it is Jen or JLO or the hundreds of aspiring and desperate actresses that he preyed upon with his buddies Harvey and Matt 2 decades ago. Ben is a grown ass man and a scum bag. Whatever pain he is going through is miniscule to the pain he has caused.
I can't believe that I, on a site filled with women, have to be the one to say stop blaming the women for this sorry louse. He is in pure desperate manipulation mode... "It wasn't me jen, the booze made me do it!!"
I hope she drops him off, and goes immediately to her lawyers office and tells him to speed things up while Ben is tucked away.

Neal M said...

But she won't. Ben as a pure predator already knows her weak spots, and knows this has a chance of working. Hell he might even have manipulated himself into believing if this works and she lets him come home, he will stop preying on other women. But he won't either. They are both stuck.

gretchen fonseca said...

Ben married Jen because she was 4 months prego. He did not marry JLO and GP because JLo found out about the hookers and was still willing to marry him buher his mama did not like her and GP and him were never that serious. Ben has demos like all of us do with the difference that when they come out the cameras are waiting. Jen G cheated on her first husband with her Alias costar and then cheated on her costar w/ Ben when she did Daredevil. She then got prego and Ben married her. I am sure he loves her and adores his kids but he will always be a bachelor at heart. Jen is a great mom and wife and like most of us when we get married and have children our hoe days are left behind. But let’s get real about how this love story started. Ben likes hooking up w/ girls that are already taken., JLo was married at the time, Jen G was dating her costar and Shookus I read was also married. He likes the chase and when it’s achived, he moves on. I wish him and Jen well. They seem like good ppl.but most of all I hope he gets healthy for his children.

Neal M said...

"He does really shitty things to people/women, but he is handsome and rich, and I love his movies = good person!"

hothotheat said...

Jen was married when she hooked up with her co-star. Then dumped him for a bigger fish (Affleck). I dislike cheaters and climbers which is where my dislike of her comes from.

Cee Kay said...

Everything about Jennifer Garner screams FAKE. Anything she does "for her kids" you can bet she's doing for herself and for appearances. Hate her.

Amy said...

What Jen did was amazing. She did it for her kids. What other celebrity would do that? Absolute tower of strength. It was selfless. He is her kid's Father. She could have taken him for all his worth and did a Angelina Jolie but she didn't.

cece said...

Truth. 🙌🏼

Andrew Simpson said...

Enty is it possible in another blind you can elaborate on WHY Ben Affleck is drinking so much? I read that Affleck was cut from future Batman movies for someone younger? Could that be the reason Ben is so upset?

Andrew Simpson said...

Jennifer Garner is a gold digger and social climber hilarious people think she is some noble woman. She dumped her first husband Scott Foley for her TV co star on Alias and dumped that guy for Affleck. Affleck I think made a mistake marrying Jennifer Garner he was better off with Jennifer Lopez.

Stupidpervs said...

I no like her..always a victim and plays dumb

Paul Saint John said...

Is Jennifer Lopez a teetotaller, really?

@HotHotHeat: IDK why women who dump their current boyfriends for bigger fish are often overlooked. Probably because society’s too busy vilifying the “other woman” archetype (I know they start bullying girls as young as 15 even if the girl in question had no idea the 12th grader in question had a girlfriend up in boarding school).

Anyway, I myself never really thought about it until very recently when a friend told me about this woman who eventually married an actor (she also got him to marry her because she made him her baby daddy, by the way).

ANYWAY, I felt bad for her sometimes. For VARIOUS reasons I felt a lot of compassion for her, of them being that I wondered if she married a man she didn’t really like at all just to get back at her ex because he married someone else and had children with her (her ex isn’t famous). And my friend told me, she’d been targeting her mark (her current husband/baby daddy) SINCE SHE WAS STILL WITH HER EX AT THE TIME. IDK all the details, or who dumped who, but I’m assuming around November 2013 was when she started scheming and July 2014 was when she really got her plans in motion.

And that’s one of the reasons I stopped feeling sorry for her (although it’s always good to have compassion for everybody).

I think she ended up stalking him (I’m guessing she even bought her own ring and announced an engagement one-sidedly) and pressuring him to give her “plus-one status” so she could attend industry events with him (the unfortunate thing is, her timing was so thirsty, in effect it made HER HUSBAND look like the thirsty/ridiculous one because then everybody thought she was a PR campaigning beard—no, she’s a REAL wife, guys—as in she secured herself some legal rights as his spouse, it’s just that she’s so thirsty/gold-diggy to the point of absurdity and looks can be so deceiving).

I mean you know there’s never smoke without fire, but when the smoke you produce is so bad that people can mistake it for the work of Harvey Weinstein and blame HIM for the mess, you can’t help but be stunned. 😱🤯

Sometimes the simple truth (just a good old-fashioned scheming gold-digger with a long-term plan single-handedly climbing her way up to an Oscar red carpet) is more disturbing than outrageous conspiracy theories (where everything is rumoured to have been Harvey Weinstein’s fault). DAMN.

But that’s noooone of my business... 🤷🏻‍♀️

Namaste, baby. ✌🏼

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I’m sorry. 💛

Scandi Sanskrit said...

It’s called having an “addictive personality” (although theres some debate on whether that actually exists).

I’m on team #AddictivePersonalityEXISTS. It’s also an ADHD comorbidity. “Cure” one addiction, and you just end up getting addicted to something else. You’re always addictive to SOMETHING.

All you can do is manage it (and it’s hard AF to practice mindfulness when you’re ADHD to begin with). 🤷🏻‍♀️

If you can, try make something out of it (like turn a shopping addiction/compulsive buying into a business) that’s good. But you can’t open a bar if you’re an alcoholic, can you?

MattDaddy said...

This is just a.really sad.thing. My mother was a severe alcoholic, and that was bad enough, but I can't imagine what happens to the kids when it's all out in the public eye like this, again and again and again.

Sd Auntie said...

Good job Jenn. Make the weak man get help and do not let him see the kids unless the visit is supervised. Keep this joker off the streets. Drunk drivers suck. Kids are always FIRST

Amy said...

JLO is a vile human being.

Amy said...

I won't go into details of being an alcoholic as there's not a huge lot of empathy on here. However, we don't want empathy. I am recovering. I never wanted people to feel sorry for me. It was my choice at first to numb things. It got out of control. Soon I couldn't function without a drink. I would shake, vomit, sweat and my legs couldn't take the own weight of my body. It is not easy and you can't just stop by then. Withdrawal is absolutely terrifying. To stop that-you pick up a drink again. Once it gets that bad you really have a problem.

Amy said...

The third day of sobriety and going cold turkey is the worst. That's when most give in. I did it myself. you should never do it yourself as you can have a heart attack, seizure. When people say "just stop drinking" believe me, it really isn't that easy once you're that bad.

mercyprosperity said...

My two loved ones, are/were both raging, angry, depressive, active alcoholics. One of them died early.
The other has lost everything he had, including wife (me) and daughter and a great career; he is living off the grid somewhere, possibly also dead.
I don't drink.
