Before she refused to be the ashes, Capital One spokesperson Jennifer Garner reportedly refused to let Lindsay Shookus get involved with her husband without giving her the what for. You all know the dirt by now, right? After first revealing that Ben Affleck has been seeing an SNL producer named Lindsay Shookus, the tabloids started expanding on the story by reporting that the relationship began way back in 2013, when both of them were still married. (Read Lainey’s analysis of People’s actual language here.)


Well today’s big scoop is that Garner not only knew about the affair, she gave Shookus a piece of her mind. People writes:

Jennifer Garner confronted Ben Affleck‘s girlfriend Lindsay Shookus in person after she found out about their affair in 2015, sources tell PEOPLE.

Garner was on a work trip to New York City when she approached Shookus about the fling. “Lindsay refused to back down or quit the affair,” says a source.

The story goes on to quote a source “close to Shookus” who claims “Jennifer and Lindsay do not have any relationship,” but I’m not sure what that’s supposed to mean here. Jennifer and Lindsay do not have any relationship because they have never met, or, uh, something like Jennifer and Lindsay do not have any relationship because back in 2015 Jennifer confronted Lindsay in a parking garage at night and said all she needed to say—including the words, “I’m so disappointed in you”—before disappearing back into the darkness.


Blac Chyna’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, sent Ferrari, the man not the car, a letter “warning him not to sell or post any nude pics or images he might have of her.” In the letter, Bloom writes:

“Posting online or distributing photos of Ms. White’s intimate body parts is a crime punishable by fines and jail time.”

I have a feeling we aren’t going to be hearing from Ferrari much in the near future.


Here’s a deeply uncomfortable video of Hilary Duff and Sutton Foster playing “giant Jenga.” The first eight seconds—during which Hilary Duff begrudgingly mimes the old Disney Channel Tinkerbell interstitial—are so hard to watch that I’m actually shocked they weren’t edited out.

  • Nico Tortorella and Bethany Meyers don’t use words like “girlfriend,” “boyfriend,” or “partner.” They use “family.” [People]
  • I totally get what Charlize is saying here and it’s very good that she’s speaking out but also cavemen don’t know what money is. [Page Six]
  • We are being told we should care about Nina Dobrev’s relationship with Glen Powell, but I’m so exhausted. [Page Six]

I know this is not SNS but since I’m in Europe I always miss those and I got really great news today that I want to share! I work in academia and recently I’ve really been wanting to get into research journalism, but it’s not so easy to break into the good publications (‘duh’ - Every Writer Ever). Well, last week I had a good idea for an article and I wrote a pitch, which I sent to my top pick of magazines in my country yesterday. And today, the editor in chief E-MAILED ME THAT THEY WANT MY ARTICLE! I don’t really want to tell many people irl until I’ve actually finished and published the article but I AM FREAKING OUT SO HARD TODAY!
