1. Jennifer Garner is reportedly filing for a divorce from Ben Affleck after 2 years of separation
Affleck had reportedly moved out of their shared home in Brentwood, but sources say the two will still remain committed to sharing the responsibility of raising their children.
A source told “US Weekly”:
“No matter what happens, Ben and Jen are committed to raising their family as one unit and will continue to do so as it has worked for them…They are both committed to their family.”
This comes after Garner talked to “Vanity Fair” last year and said:
“He’s the love of my life,….What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.”

And now the show’s boss Lorne Michaels is trying to convince her to be a regular guest playing Spicer,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “They know Alec is already getting bored and Melissa would be the perfect replacement.
