Ben Affleck’s out there promoting his new inspirational sad drunk coach movie The Way Back. Since the flick’s basically a Ben biopic (but replace making meh movies with coaching high school basketball), he’s been talking a lot about his sobriety struggles, and how he regrets his divorce to Jennifer Garner. Ben even made Diane Sawyer read a kiss ass “thank you” note he wrote for Jen (“5 years too late!” screams Jen as she hurls freshly baked sesame bagels at the TV).
Meanwhile, Jen’s been dating hottie robot-hamburger businessman John Miller for almost two years. Last we heard, they were still serious, but in no rush to get married. But, according to Us Weekly, Johnny ain’t thrilled about Ben’s recent apology tour.

Miller, 41, is becoming “uncomfortable with Ben’s interviews,” a source close to the businessman says in the latest issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now. “John is empathetic to Ben’s struggles with sobriety, but he worries about how Jennifer has once again become the focus. … The spotlight on Jennifer is intense and Ben needs to consider her feelings before speaking so publicly.”
If Ben isn’t clearing these public apologies with Jen ahead of time, then, yes, I agree with Hamburger Hottie. Then again, everyone knowing that Ben regrets fucking up his marriage to his savior is good for business. The source goes on to say:
“John believes Ben would remarry Jennifer if she wanted to get back together,” the insider says. “John wants to marry Jennifer but knows she isn’t ready yet.”
I don’t think Hamburger Hottie should be worried. Sure, Ben Affleck’s an A-list star who sired her children, but, if I’m Jen, there’s one thing that will forever stop me from returning to Casa de Affleck. And, no, it’s not the booze. The Batfleck. Or even the back tattoo. It’s Christine Ouzounian. The Nanny. Say her name with me. Out loud. CHRISTINE OUZOUNIAN. In today’s 24 hour breakneck news cycle we tend to let legends like Christine fade into the woodwork. But never forget her legacy and seismic contributions to side-piece culture. Never. Forget.
