BEN AFFLECK IS WILLING TO SUFFER FOR LOVE

Jennifer Lopez’slove don’t cost a thing,” except maybe the price of a laser tattoo removal. Jen is still madly in love with her hubby Ben Affleck, but she just can’t say the same for the ginormous tattoo covering his back. Ben got the large multicolor Phoenix tattoo during a low point in his life (he reportedly wasn’t sober) and he’s well aware that his better half dislikes it. It’s reported to be far more painful to laser OFF a tattoo than it is to get one, but Ben wants Jen to be happy so he’s beginning the process of having it removed. Unfortunately for him, his tattoo is SO large and colorful that it’s going to take multiple sessions – and very likely a few years.

HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW

Paula Abdul’s sexual harassment lawsuit against her former coworker and friend, Nigel Lythgoe is making headlines as the two engage in back and forth of he said /she saids.

Nikki Haley suspended her presidential campaign the day after Super Tuesday, but what she did NOT do is endorse her fellow Republican Donald Trump. Here’s why: Nikki deplores Trump’s misogynistic ways and while she’s a fan of most of his policies, she finds him repulsive as a human being (and we use that term loosely). Here’s some inside scoop: Before Nikki caves to pressure and endorses Trump she has a top secret call scheduled with President Joe Biden. Our source says that Biden is prepared to offer Nikki a role in his cabinet, or her former UN position, if she endorses him instead!

JENNIFER LOPEZ IS WRITING VOLUME 2 OF HER LIFE STORY

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again is exactly what Jennifer Lopez is doing. First she applied that proverbial saying to Ben Affleck, marrying him 20 years after their ill-fated first engagement – and now she’s applying it to her memoir. In 2014, Jennifer released her first book, True Love and while it made the bestsellers list, it paled in comparison to sales for other celebrity tell-alls. Jen has decided to write True Love Volume 2, which is the working title of her current memoir. Expect her to reveal how she and Ben reconciled after two decades, her co-parenting with Marc Anthony, and her struggles and successes as a Latina in Hollywood. A publishing insider says this book is projected to outsell her previous one by a mile! Let’s face it, a lot has happened since her first book…

LIFETIME COMPANIONS: BEN AFFLECK AND DUNKIN DONUTS

We have to give credit to the Dunkin Donuts company for hiring their most loyal – and probably most famous – fan, Ben Affleck, to appear in ads . They are even cleverly recreating familiar paparazzi shots through the years of Ben enjoying their coffee and donuts. After he and his wife Jennifer Garner split, Ben was photographed bringing different female companions to Dunkin Donuts, much to his dismay. We remember when he was dating Ana de Armas, she often stayed at his west side home and just about every morning a paparazzi would catch Ben fetching Dunkan Donuts treats delivered to his doorstep. Nowadays Jennifer Lopez is his Dunkin Donuts companion – his favorite drink is still “iced coffee with milk and 2 sugars- sometimes Splenda”

BEN AFFLECK’S GENTLE REMINDER TO JENNIFER LOPEZ

He already has his two front teeth, so this year all Ben Affleck wants for Christmas is for his wife Jennifer Lopez to be on time. Jennifer has an unfortunate habit of running late (she’s often overbooked and frantic) and keeping nearly everyone waiting, including Ben. Even though Jen has so much on her plate with her career, business ventures and motherhood, her tardiness drives punctual Ben batty. To sweeten the deal, he’s stuffing her stocking this year with a rare Audemars Piguet diamond watch – hoping that it will be a pleasant way to remind her to be on time in 2024.

JENNIFERS GARNER AND LOPEZ ACTUALLY LIKE EACH OTHER

They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so Jennifer Lopez is taking cooking lessons from Jennifer Garner! The two women share something in common besides their first name. Garner was previously married to Lopez’s current husband, Ben Affleck. Although that marriage didn’t work out, they’ve all remained friendly and Garner has had Ben and Jen over for home cooked meals. Since she hosts her “pretend cooking show” online, she knows her way around the kitchen and she’s teaching J.Lo how to make some basics, like meatloaf and homemade pizza. She also grows many of her own herbs and vegetables so she’s sharing her garden bounty as well. Does Ben Affleck know how lucky he is?

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…
