US Weekly has the exclusive – Ben Affleck is dating a woman who used to be the nanny. Her name is Christine Ouzounian, 28 years old. Supposedly she and Ben started dating during Ben and Jennifer Garner’s secret 10 month trial separation. Whatever. We’ve already analysed the legitimacy of that 10 month trial separation – click here for a refresher. They certainly weren’t separated in March when they were on a family holiday together in Baker’s Bay. So, basically, Ben and Christine were into each other while she was caring for his children. One of her friends tells the magazine that, “They would hang out without the kids. And they were very flirty”.

Eventually Jen found out about the situation and Christine was fired. But she and Ben are still together. US reports that they were together at his rental home as recently as July 17. And that they’re always texting and emailing when he’s in Atlanta. And that Christine believes that “Ben really, really likes her”.

Actually, not just “like” but…

“She’s saying this is true love.”

Ben Affleck’s rep is denying the story, calling “all allegations of a romantic relationship…baseless and untrue”.


It’s inconceivable that Ben Affleck would ever hook up with the nanny? Or a co-star? The nanny wouldn’t ride him for the late night gambling and all his other distractions and habits. Really, it’s such a f-cking cliché. If he read this in a script, that’s what he’d call it.

And now, oh since it’s not messy enough, she’s in love with him, breaking the first rule of cheating douchebags – love’s got nothing to do with it.

"This is something that Ben is extraordinarily good at, when he has to cook up a phone conversation, when has to hear somebody on the other end of the phone. It's kinda stunning how ... if I was his wife, I think I would be very suspicious always of whoever just called. There are people who do that and it's too pointed. But Ben is very very subtle and there's a kind of indirectness to the way he can do those things. Probably because he's so duplicitous."

Not my words. That’s what David Fincher said about him – click here for a refresher. This guy is a classic f-ckup. It’s an endless cycle.
