• Source: Ben Affleck's Former Nanny 'Tipped Off the Paparazzi' About Los Angeles Rendezvous

    A source tells ET that Christine Ouzounian, the nanny who has been linked to Ben Affleck, had only worked with the family for "a matter of months" and had joined Affleck and Jennifer Garner in the Bahamas earlier this month after the couple announced they were divorcing. This comes after Us Weekly alleged in a report on Wednesday that Affleck was romantically involved with Ouzounian, whom the couple reportedly hired from an upscale Beverly Hills nanny agency to look after their three children, Violet, 9; Seraphina, 6; and Samuel, 3. According to ET's source, Ouzounian was let go by the couple. And, her closest friends thought she was being strangely tight-lipped about the reason for her firing, though Affleck wrote a glowing recommendation letter on her behalf. WATCH: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Split: New Details on What Went Wrong "It was really sudden," the source says. "She was weirdly quiet about why the job just ended." She stayed quiet Wednesday as paparazzi followed her to her home in Santa Monica. Photos have surfaced of Ouzounian bringing Affleck champagne at his rental home in Los Angeles. Another source tells ET that Ouzounian "tipped off the paparazzi" about that rendezvous so that photos would be taken of her and Affleck together. Affleck's rep has staunchly denied Us Weekly's claims, saying that the story is "complete garbage and full of lies" and that any rumors of a romantic relationship between the 42-year-old actor and the 28-year-old nanny are "baseless and untrue."

  • 5 Overlooked Ways to Cool Down a Hot Room (7 photos)

    There's one in every home. Whether it's a finished basement or a converted attic, a west-facing sunroom or a live-in garage, there always seems to be a particular spot in the house where the temperature soars in the summer. While other rooms under the same roof remain perfectly comfortable, in the problem area it's 10 degrees hotter than everywhere else. To cope, some homeowners simply close off the unbearable room, leaving it mostly unoccupied until the fall. Others resort to noisy, unsightly window air conditioners, even though such appliances can be exorbitantly expensive to run. Looking for a lasting solution you can afford? Click through now to see a range of effective possibilities, from the indirect benefit of shady landscaping to the direct relief of a ductless cooling system from Mitsubishi Electric. | By Donna Boyle Schwartz , BobVila.com

  • NBA's all-time starting five - New York Knicks (15 photos)

    You’re in your second semester of AP Basketball History, you love really good teams, and you love lists. With precious little drama left in the NBA’s 2015 offseason, why don’t we hit the barroom and/or barbershop, pour ourselves a frosty mug of Barbicide, and get to arguin’ over each franchise’s most formidable starting five-man lineup. Because we don’t like making tough decisions, the lineups will reflect the All-NBA line of thinking. There will be no differentiation between separate forward and guard positions, and the squads will be chosen after careful consideration of individual merits only – we don’t really care if your team’s top shooting guard and point guard don’t get along. These rankings will roll out based on when each franchise began its NBA life. We continue with the New York Knicks.
