WILL JENNIFER LOPEZ AND BEN AFFLECK EVER AGREE ON A HOUSE?

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are lucky in love but so far, unlucky in house hunting. For the THIRD time in months, the newlyweds have entered and then CANCELED escrow on a house they were interested in buying because they can’t seem to agree on a LOCATION. Jennifer prefers a gated community like Mulholland Estates where she lived when she was married to Marc Anthony- because she felt safe from stalkers etc. But that kind of neighborhood can be remote and far from a village or even a coffee shop. Ben, on the other hand, prefers the friendly neighborhood feeling of Brentwood and Pacific Palisades, where you can walk to a park or cafe. According to a real estate insider, that’s one of the main reasons they’ve yet to purchase their new dream house. “She wants gates and security, but Ben prefers low-key luxury.”

BEN AND JEN’S MARRIAGE IS PAYING OFF BIGTIME

Like it or not, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have become one of the hottest and most in-demand couples in the world. Dolce & Gabbana jumped on the bandwagon early and hired Jennifer for a recent sunglasses campaign. The designers are about to launch a new fragrance collection and they REALLY want Ben and Jen to celebrate their rekindled romance in TV and print ads. Coincidentally or not, the working name of the new scent is “Rekindled.” The contract isn’t signed, but the deal could pocket $20 million or more for the lucky newlyweds…

MATT DAMON AND BEN AFFLECK: VIVA LAS VEGAS!

Matt Damon is packing up the wife and kids and moving to Las Vegas and he wants his best buddy Ben Affleck to join him. An insider says that Matt is making the move for various tax reasons -including no state income tax and the the city recently passed a huge movie production tax incentive in hopes of becoming the next Hollywood. Here’s where it gets interesting: Ben’s better half is open to the idea because she’s been offered a residency at one of the casinos. Ben and Jen are discreetly looking at houses in the same posh area where Matt bought a home.

BEN AFFLECK JUST CANNOT CURB THAT URGE

The honeymoon isn’t over for rekindled lovebirds Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck but that doesn’t mean everything between them is marital bliss. While J.Lo is thrilled to finally be married to Ben, there’s one habit of his she’s trying to curb – he smokes cigarettes. Sober Ben seems to have replaced his booze addiction with nicotine and health fanatic Jen doesn’t approve. She’s banned him from smoking inside the house, but still isn’t thrilled with the second hand smoke that seems to enter the room before he does. And Ben appears to light up whenever he’s out and alone. A friend says Jen is gently encouraging Ben to quit with assorted methods, including hypnosis and nicotine gum, but so far he’s yet to kick that nasty habit.

JENNIFER LOPEZ’S DAUGHTER HAS A MIND OF HER OWN

Jennifer Lopez took her vintage-loving daughter Emme (blue shorts) to the Hollywood flea market and there’s so much to look at that she attracted very little attention. (We have to point out that Jennifer’s choice of footwear for a flea market was far from ideal) Emme loves vintage rock n’ roll t-shirts and used jeans, and she actually looks happier rummaging at the flea market than she did shopping the designer stores like Gucci and Prada in Italy with her mom..

IS THIS THE PERFECT FAMILY, OR WHAT?

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck didn’t spend ALL their time smooching in Paris, where they’re honeymooning with four of their kids. Jennifer brought her twins Max and Emme, and Ben brought his two daughters Seraphina and Violet – he left his young son Sam at home. From all the photos we’ve seen, the kids seem to get along really well and love to hang out together. Ben and Jen took their blended family shopping and after visiting Dior and an art supply store (for Serephina) they visited Micromania– a popular video game retailer. Ben stocked up on games (for Sam at home?) while their eagle-eyed bald bodyguards (above) looked on. You can see Emme in the shop doorway and Max is next to Ben. Crowds gather outside the Costes Hotel in Paris to watch the honeymooners coming and going.

OUR TWO FAVORITE ROOMS IN THE NEW AFFLECK/LOPEZ HOUSE

While Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are on their Italian honeymoon (with their kids, no less!) work has begun on the new 60 million dollar 29,000 sq ft Beverly Hills house they bought before they left. They kept the purchase a big secret and nobody knows exactly what they paid for it, but billionaire James Packer once owned it. You already know it has 7 bedrooms and everything else a human could want, but after checking out the photos we picked out the two rooms we love most. The first is the amazingly well-equipped beauty salon that will keep the blended families looking their best. Sigh. Drool. The second desirable room also made us dizzy with envy- it’s the closet – and it looks like an expensive boutique. Now THAT’S breathtaking luxury…

BIG SPENDERS BEN AND JEN PICK OUT A NEW ROLLS ROYCE

Lovebirds Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have not been spending their free time together lounging on island beaches – they spend it shopping for big-ticket items! For the past year, they’ve been househunting for a mega-mansion big enough for their blended families. They almost bought one in April for 55 million, but the deal fell through. Recently the couple perused the Aaron Spelling 165 million dollar mansion, but passed on that one. This weekend is different, however- they went shopping for a new Rolls Royce in Beverly Hills with Ben’s son Sam. Salespeople must jump out of their shoes when they see these big spenders coming…

JENNIFER LOPEZ: ISN’T DRIVING IN LA RISKY ENOUGH?

Nice to see that busy Jennifer Lopez finds time to shop with her daughter Emme- the pair hit the funky end of Melrose Avenue to look for vintage clothing at Jet Rag. Emme has eclectic taste and she’s not all about designer fashion like her mother. However, as Jennifer was getting into her car we were struck by the sight of her 8 inch platform summer shoes. Are they REALLY safe for driving? We can imagine all sorts of bad things happening…any opinions out there?

JENNIFER LOPEZ AND BEN HAVE THEIR DIFFERENCES

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were seen picking up his son Samuel at school in Santa Monica today, and it got us thinking. They’re both casually dressed, but Jennifer is wearing shoes that give her at least 6 or 7 more inches of height (they can’t be very comfortable) -yet she still looks TINY next to Ben. Jennifer is such a big personality we always figured she was above average in height. Turns out Ben is 6’4” – no wonder he looks a foot taller than her. Never realized there was such a height difference…
