As mentioned in the previous post about Emma Stone, SNL is off until November 4th, when Larry David will host the show. This weekend is the David S Pumpkins animated Halloween special. This means that Lindsay Shookus gets a couple of weeks off. So she’s been in LA with Ben Affleck. And on Tuesday they went househunting together. According to PEOPLE:

“Ben is looking to buy a family friendly house,” a real estate source tells PEOPLE. “Lindsay shared her opinions, but it was clear that they are not buying a house together.”

Right. But it’s still a different conversation. Two weeks ago Ben was apologising for groping Hilarie Burton. Since then he’s been papped on multiple occasions hanging out with Jennifer Garner and their kids and not knowing how to hold his new puppy. Now we’re seeing him with his girlfriend, looking for a home in the $10-$20 million range. All of which he’d probably rather talk about than Harvey Weinstein and sexual harassment when it’s time to start promoting Justice League…come very, very soon. But this is what we’ve come to. He may now prefer to take questions about whether or not he’s moving in with his girlfriend than whether or not he protected the man who’s been revealed to be one of Hollywood’s most egregious sexual abusers.
