Ben Affleck is staying in rehab, so says the people over at Us Weekly. He checked in a month ago after his soon-to-be-ex-wife Jennifer Garner staged an intervention The two had been trying to reach a finalized divorce settlement for ages but his boozing was a major issue for Jen moving forward, so she enlisted the help of a sober coach and told her former man to get it together. Ben has finished up 30 days of rehab, but Postmates deliver drivers working in the area of his rehab place better expect more daily Jack in the Box orders from him, because he’s staying for more treatment and is serious about staying sober.
When Ben Affleck checked into rehab after his soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Garner staged an intervention, we all figured that when he said goodbye to booze, he also said goodbye to Playboy model Shauna “Whiskey All Day” Sexton, but she’s still around, according to Entertainment Tonight.
After what feels like a month of Sundays, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have finally reached a settlement in their multi-million dollar divorce. This is great news for them and even better news for us. This doesn’t mean that the divorce is OVER over, but this should be the next to last post we have to read about this divorce until the final nail is hammered into the coffin of BenJen II (as opposed to l’original BenJen: Ben and Jennifer Lopez . Pour a little out for the cinematic masterpiece that is “Gigli“, my friends. Never forget!).
About a year and a half after he completed a rehab stint for alcohol issues, Ben Affleck has checked back in yesterday. I’m probably not the only one who thinks this news feels like the inevitable bookend to the one that began last week with the words: “Ben dumps his girlfriend for a 22-year-old Playboy model.”
When it was reported earlier this week that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus had broken up after about a year of dating, and that he had moved on to a 22-year-old Playboy model, it seemed like yet another box was checked on Ben’s Mid-Life To-Do List. I’m sure anyone was surprised, and Jennifer Garner was right there with the rest of us.
There’s trouble in paradise for Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus. Well, their relationship never really seemed too hot to begin with, to be honest, so I guess I should say: There’s trouble in mediocrity for Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus.
UPDATE: E! News says that ShookLeck is no more after one year of dating, because of distance. And by that they don’t mean it was hard for her to get close to him with his peen in a Playboy model. Shookus lives in NYC and Ben mostly lives in L.A.
