Ben’s Friends Intervene To Stop Wedding With J.Lo?

September 15, 2003 – Twice last week, before the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez wedding was called off, Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com was told Ben’s close pals staged an “intervention,” the kind used for addicts, to stop his wedding to J.Lo. As for their post-cancellation dinner at The Ivy, Friedman says their mutual agent, Patrick Whitesell, suggested it as a way of cooling off the press interest that has become so weird and intense. He adds that it a business meal, not a romantic encounter. Read more.

    All the radio stations by me are promoting a J.Lo free zone. They are not playing any of her music and refuse to talk about her and Ben. Her career is definitely going to die now. It’s about time, I don’t know what took so long.

    He left the casino with a female companion at 6am….Hmmm…I wonder who that was. I hope it is over I’m tired of those two , J.lo is just like a guy she lies and cheats but it can’t happen to her, if Ben dumped her she deserved it sorry to say besides they were too over exposed!

    Please note that this woman, cheats on husband after husband, and gets engaged while still married. What a harlot. I’m sick of her and her Metro-sexual Ben. Just boring. She had it coming.

    Well, what goes around comes around. I guess it’s time for her to do a little suffering after what she put her last 3 exes through. I still do not like to wish anybody I’ll will. It’s wrong. I’ve lost total respect for Ben though. He really mistreated her. The strippers, the dumping, his mother’s dislike for her – a total negative picture. He’s a total scum bag. What gentleman would do this. If he didn’t love her, why did he put her through this and dump her much earlier in a gentlemanly fashion. I don’t get it. Total idiot vain dude if you ask me.

    Well, she should have expected it. She can’t totally change Ben. She’s a fool into thinking she can change a man once she marries him. ANY person is, for that matter.

    I think this whole breakup/cancellation was staged so that they could get married privately with no press around. Maybe I’m just weird but that’s what I think.

    I was watching the Trio channel this weekend and they had an old interview with Ben from 1998. The interviewer asked him who he might pursue as a love interest. He gave a top ten list: Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry (didn’t seem likely, although she was supposed to be in Gigli) Jennifer Aniston, Holly Hunter, Mira Sorvino and Mariah Carey. The interviewer goes, “Mariah? Pretty girl. Why would choose her?” Ben’s Response: I’ve always been a big fan of hers, especially of her earlier stuff but I do like her new music, as well as the new persona. Interviewer(laughing): “A lot of guys do.” Ben: “I wouldn’t mind having a relationship with her. She’s gorgeous and very talented. A lot of her music has inspired me to be a better person” Even though this was amusing, I wondered if there was actually any truth to it. Was he just saying those things for the interview, or did he actually mean them?

    I couldn’t remember the other 4 ladies’ names. Wasn’t he with Gwyneth Paltrow at that time?

    Okay it was my fault that Bennifer broke up. I slapped them around a bit and told them to stop being everyone and always being mentioned.
