As we learned recently, Netflix’s Gilmore Girls reboot is definitely a go, but sans Melissa McCarthy, whose star has risen dramatically since she left Stars Hollow. (I’m sorry. I’m sorry.)

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s ex-nanny might or might not (or might) be the primary reason that the couple split. Who knows why they split? Maybe it was the memories of making Daredevil!
