Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were the biggest celebrity couple heatscore of the weekend, because it’s been so rare to see them out in public together for so long, but if there was a challenger to their spotlight, it wasn’t from anyone over in England, LOL; the other major celebrity couple putting on a show was the celebrity couple of 2021. They are the joy of our lives, our guilt-free gossip pleasure…


Bennifer Summer has become Bennifer Autumn, as Ben Affleck joined Jennifer Lopez in New York to support her as she performed at Global Citizen Live. They haven’t been seen together since they were last in New York two weeks ago at the Met Gala. Ben’s reportedly been in Austin working on a new film while JLo remained in LA, seen several times last week in rehearsals ahead of her performance.

And they kept up that energy yesterday, for my birthday. Like I said, I’m that asshole who makes everything about her birthday. On my birthday Bennifer took their love for a New York City walk – with JLo in five inch heels and a full runway outfit, LOL forever. And it’s not like they didn’t know that the paps were all over them. But still, the display of love here. At one point they stopped and hugged and kissed like they could not contain their happiness…

Which makes me wonder what they’re so giddy about. Like, did something just happen? Is there something to celebrate? For all of us to celebrate?
