Jennifer Garner Still Bound to Ben Affleck

Jennifer Garner and Violet Affleck go out to a Country Mart in Brentwood, Calif on Wednesday afternoon.

“A report by E!’s Ted Casablanca that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are considering breaking up is 100% completely fabricated,” Garner’s rep told Us Weekly. “There is not one ounce of truth to it.”

Affleck’s rep said, “We usually don’t comment on stuff like this. But you should know sources are liars. If you guys want to do the right thing, you won’t post that item. It’s all BS.”

Mary-Kate Olsen is the Wackness

Olsen plays a free-spirited herbalist named Union.

Tinsley Mortimer Joins Gossip Girl

Manhattan socialite Tinsley Mortimer, aka The Tinz, apparently has scored herself a cameo on the hit CW drama, Gossip Girl.

Last season, publishing heiress Lydia Hearst made a cameo on the season finale of Gossip Girl.

It’s collecting dust. She looked good but she just got dressed and went to parties every day and didn’t have anything interesting to say. It was incredibly boring. The project is dead.”

Vanessa Hudgens: Zac Showers Everyday!

Vanessa Hudgens is featured in the August 2008 issue of CosmoGirl. Check out her interview to see what a day in the life of Vanessa is like and what her and boyfriend Zac Efron are really like.

Newsweek also did a (stupid) interview with Vanessa. (It’s the same interviewer who was completely unprofessional with Clay Aiken.) Here are some excerpts:

“HSM” director Kenny Ortega once told me you and Zac Efron started dating on the first “High School Musical,” and I don’t think I’ve ever heard that story. And I’m going to keep it that way.

You’re not going to tell me? No. Only because I don’t want to talk about it. It might hurt the relationship. That’s something I have to myself.

So, is it hard to go on dates? No. We do what we want.

Are the reports true that Zac doesn’t like to shower? That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Whoever came up with that is completely idiotic.

Because when I met him, he smelled perfectly fine. He showers! He showers! ­Believe me, he does.

Every day? Yes! Of course.
