Ben Affleck’s Nanny Soaks Up All That Media Attention

Most people who are caught up in scandal run from the paparazzi.

Not Christine Ouzounian, the former nanny to Jennifer Garner and soon to be ex-husband Ben Affleck.

When the paparazzi caught up with the freshly blow-dried nanny climbing into an SUV, she turned, flashed a big, beautiful smile and said, “I have no comment!”

Not exactly the kind of expression a nanny wears when getting accused of sleeping with another woman’s husband. The couple announced their split a month ago, right around the time when Garner fired Ouzounian. But already the rumors of Affleck sleeping with the nanny are flying.

On Wednesday, Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton reported that sources are telling him that Affleck is picking up the nanny’s bill at the 5 star Hotel Bel-Air Hotel in Beverly Hills , where she’s reportedly lounging by the pool in a black bikini, drinking cocktails and hanging out at the spa. (Daily Mail notes that she’s wearing a “scarlet red” top at the bar.)

A source tells Perez that “Ben is taking care of Christine’s expenses at the hotel.”

The blogger to the stars asks incredulously, “Do you think Ben is buying her hotel room? Or do you think she’s just trying to get media attention?”

Good thing she’s hired a crisis PR firm.
