Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus were photographed together last night in New York after checking out of the Ritz-Carlton. They were later seen again as he dropped her off at her apartment before he left the city, presumably to head back to LA. So we’re at the point in their relationship where they’ve committed to seeing each other as often as possible, once a week so far every week since going public with their relationship. Not that this was ever in doubt but it’s, obviously, not a casual thing. It’s serious enough for Ben to have put this out there, with all the scrutiny, and serious enough for the cross-country regularity.

Lindsay was also papped out for a run today and then with her ex, Kevin Miller, and their daughter. You can see those photos at the Daily Mail. Lindsay looks relaxed, she’s smiling, she’s laughing, she and Kevin are playful with their child, totally unaware that she was being shot. Or…not.

If not, well that makes it even more interesting. Remember when, a few days ago, Page Six reported that Lindsay is “enjoying” the attention? That’s “she’s comfortable getting a lot of attention”? She knows she’s been a heatscore since word got out that she’s Ben Affleck’s girlfriend and all the rumours going around that she and Ben started when they were both married. And, just like the nanny Chrissy O before her, she doesn’t seem to be bothered by the cameras in her face, she’s not hiding out. Lindsay Shookus came to play. So how good is her game? Is it good enough to balance out Ben Affleck’s f-ckup tendency? He’s f-ckup prone. And for a decade it was Jennifer Garner’s game that was his best asset. This is Lindsay Shookus’s job now. Perhaps she’s letting us know that she’s up for it.
