JENNIFER GARNER'S SCHEME TO KEEP BEN AT HOME

Jennifer Garner is well aware of her husband Ben Affleck’s predilections. He loves to gamble – and poker is his passion. She doesn’t particularly want him wandering off to play in poker tournaments or weekending in Las Vegas. So she’s decided to indulge Ben’s hobby by turning a spare room in their new Brentwood home (still under construction) into a playroom for Ben and his buddies. Ben’s new poker room will resemble the casino at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. Soon Ben won’t have to fly to Las Vegas to play poker- he can just walk downstairs.

    its about getting out of the house away from them. Obviously he isn’t happy. Time for a divorce, this so called marriage is over.

    While she’s at why doesn’t Jen indulge Ben’s other predilections, should also get some waitresses from Scores to serve Ben and his buddies beer and install some cameras to make sure he doesn’t cheat again.
    Ben always looks miserable except when he is with his daughter.

    If you are building a playroom to try and keep your husband at home, something isn’t right with you or your marriage. It’s pretty sad that Jennifer doesn’t trust Ben in vegas with his friends, who would want to be married to someone like that. Poor Ben.

    Even though she’s a serial cheater (she dumped her husband Scott Foley for Michael Vartan, then dumped Vartan for Affleck) she’s still too good for him. Grow up Ben. Your career sucks but at least your wife still loves you.

    I have always thought that Ben was not marriage material. In his mind, he will always lust after poker parties, strippers, carousing, etc. He probably is as envious as hell of George Clooney. Maybe he is gay as George, too.
    Ben and George are just shallow-minded pretty boys. Keeping him in the house playing poker will not solve their underlying problems.

    Building a poker room is no different than men with garages full of tools. Just different hobbies. I see nothing wrong with having a game room. Everyone on this board is so bitter.

    I’m with you, 6:01. And hey, maybe she likes to play poker, too. Anyone ever thought of that? My husband and I set up a media room so we could watch NFL Sunday ticket TOGETHER. Jennifer Tilly proves that poker isn’t just a boy’s game.
    Oh, and not one of us knows what is going on in their marriage, so stop speculating.

    Is she providing the strippers and call girls too? she needs to realize he’s not acting like a married husband and father and probably wants out, she needs to get rid of him.

    sounds desperate, but it won’t work . Ben hasn’t looked happy since he was forced to marry garner. Once a cheater/alcoholic/gambler always. When not indulging in his vices he will look miserable. She needs to just let him go, you can’t change people and he never committed emotionally to her.
    And having another kid is a big mistake if she thinks it’s gonna make him grow up.

    Karma maybe hmmmmmm.
    I always found her to be a boring woman that wanted him no matter what, well guess what she got him alright. It just baffles me how women choose to make themselves so unhappy.She should have been content with what she had in the past, but she chose ambition and slept her way to the middle and she is now paying for it.

    I would never hook up with a serial cheater/serial gambler. These things are deeply imbedded in him and it’s doubtful if he will change. Once she starts nagging him (and she has) he just takes off for a while.
    He needs professional help. He has promised many times to quit gambling and broke his promise every time and lost untold thousand$. Who would want him; he is pompous, thinks he is God’s gift to women, and has no career.

    Jen thought she caught a great prize when she caught Ben. Couldn’t she see that he has a restless spirit and is a spoiled brat. Ha, if he dumps her or vice versa, she deserves it for being an adulteress/bed-hopper. So goes the old saying..What goes around comes around. Btw, she looks frightful unless she has on perfect hair and makeup.

    Ben was on SNL last week and reminded me that he is not a good actor. He did a Keith Olberman impression that looked great but sounded like Andy Rooney. And he could barely get through his 3 minute opening monologue without screwing it up.

    I dont know who got the short stick in this union, she was always a loser to me and now both their careers have tanked. I agree with the comment of ben looking on very adoringly at previous gf’s and she is a complete let down from jlo and gwyneth. she finally got ben but the one that got got was her, she is stuck with out a career and saddled with kiddies, she wasnt much in the looks dept to begin with and now even what she did have is diminishing.
    as for ben it doesnt say much when his best performance ever was on snl the other night.

    It is well known that Ben is just waiting for her to make a move. He began regretting their marriage even before the ink was dry on the certificate.

    Ben has expressed an interest in politics. He’d be perfect, since he is a well-known cheater, has low morals, a perpetual stupid look on his face, and a low I.Q. Since his career has tanked, I say he should go for it.
    He would fit right in, and Jen would be another politico wife who pretends not to know that her old man is an adulterer and porn lover.

    WHAT A BUNCH OF BITTER LOSERS (LOPEZ AND VARTAN LOVERS) ON HERE. I AGREE THIS IS NOT ANY BIGGY- POKER IS A MAIN STREAM HOBBY AND HE NEVER GOES OUT ANY MORE ANYWAY. BELIEVE ME IF HE DID YOU WOULD HAVE HEARD ABOUT IT ON GOSSIP BLOGS. EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR HIM TO TREAT GARNER LIKE HE TREATED LOPEZ FOR FOUR AND A HALF YEARS NOW, BUT HE OBVIOUSLY LOVES GARNER MORE THAN HE EVER DID LOPEZ SO THEY’LL HAVE TO KEEP WAITING FOR THE DIVORCE THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. SORRY LOPEZ LOVERS. WHEN HE WANTS OUT HE GETS OUT NO MATTER WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES. HE IS HAPPY NOW SO HE’S NOT LEAVING.

    From Gywinnie to J-lo to Jennifer Gardner? Was he drunk or just out of his mind? She is a despicable serial cheater and imho the most boring woman I can think of.
    Now that their sex life is finished (women always cut off sex after the second child and boredom sets in) its time for Ben to get out of this sham relationship and get a real woman he can love the way he loved Gwynnie.

    Whenever I see the three of them together, he is walking ahead of her with a mean expression, leaving her to carry the girl, who has to be getting heavy now, and Jen is pregnant too. He strikes me as a complete loser. Not good husband material at all.

    she peaked right before her divorce from scott foley, this two bit tramp thought she could do better with vartan, who I actually thought was her best match. but then she thought she saw a better apple in AFLAC and that has clearly not turned out for her. and to the person who says he doesnt go out to the casinos you are dead wrong. my bf’s father is a big time poker player and frequently runs in to BA at tournaments, heck the few times I have gone with them to tournaments I have seen him every time. so go spew your bs lies elsewhere.

    Same goes for crappy shows like 30rock and ugly betty, they get all the awards and guest stars every week to boost viewership. Yet still nobody cares cause they push their values and ideologies through these shows.
    I have come to the point where I am very selective about what I watch, don’t care for brainwashing from the hollywood and media elites.

    one of the only shows worth watching on tv now is entourage, it is brilliantly written. ugly betty is an ugly bore I absolutely abhor how they play corny music through out the episode as if that is going to camouflage how terrible this show is. ugh. double ugh. love tina fey but I also couldnt stomach 30rock.

    Because with ugly betty they are trying to make the flow of more illegals palatable to the viewer. I am all for Legal Migrants the way it should be a nation of laws. but the outta control situation is costing us the taxpayers.

    I can’t stand the show, UGly Betty…I watched it once and was totally bored. It’s just a ruse to try to cram illegal immigrants down our throats the way the media is following every move of America Ferrera, a very mediocre actress. Also, I can’t figure out the big whoop of Jessica Alba or Penelope Cruz. yuck

    WOW. I was gonna write I do not know anyone who is deeply interested in Bennifer the II. These 62 posts proved me wrong!
    That woman is very lucky. At best, she is a plain Jeniffer. She scored a hit show and now she thinks she is smoking hot.
    She starred in Juno, but the young actress who starred as Juno is the star as is the screen writer, not Jennifer Garner.
    Sorry, she just doesnt do it for me and I do not get her.
    Jennifer Lopez hired Micheal Vartan for one of her vanity projects out of pique. He was actually good in the movie, but the film “Monster In Law” flopped in a major way.

    It’s coincidence that most foreclosures you know the ones that caused the financial meltdown are mostly from populations where their are illegals and citizens that cannot afford those homes. Have fun bailing them out cause now alot of people just quit paying their homes because obama will take care of them.

    Actually, the majority of America is due to immigration. Unless you’re a Native, you are all immigrants. As a side note, the majority of America is stupid as well. Hence the reputation “ugly American” abroad.
