Last week, we reported that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner started marriage counseling as part of a last-ditch effort to save their marriage.
As you might have guessed, the admirable attempt was a flat-out disaster.
There are conflicting stories as to why Ben and Jen endured an intense, two-hour counseling session together, with some insiders claiming they hoped to reconcile and others insisting they're just trying to get along for the sake of the kids.
Whatever the case, all parties seem to agree that a second session is not in the cards.
Radar Online is reporting that Garner blew up at Affleck and the ex-couple wound up arguing about everything from Ben's infidelity to the best place to raise their kids.
“Jen doesn’t care who Ben dates or hooks up with,” one source claims.
“She just doesn’t want the kids to be asking any questions about it. There is no chance Jen and Ben will get back together and she finally feels that she deserves to be happy without him.”
The insider adds that the couple spent much of the session arguing about how to deal with the walking PR nightmare that is Christine Ouzounian.
Apparently, Jen is just as eager to see the former nanny quietly disappear as Ben is.
An anonymous friend of Garner's says she was shocked when Jen recently revealed that is was her idea to pay for Ouzounian to stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel until the media attention dies down.
Ouzounian appears to have left the hotel, but it looks like Affleck and Garner might be paying her to keep mum for quite some time...especially if they keep renewing the public's interest by going to counseling sessions together.
