BEN AFFLECK RANTS ABOUT TOM BRADY ON HBO TALK SHOW
Ben Affleck has raised some concern over his sobriety following an appearance on the premiere of Bill Simmons' new HBO show, Any Given Wednesday. The Justice League actor went was noticeably slurring his words while going on a profanity-filled rant about Tom Brady's "deflategate" scandal.

BEN:"You wanna give a guy, because he doesn't give you his cellphone, a punishment? I would never give the organization as leak prone as the NFL my f***in' cellphone so you can just look through my emails and listen to my voicemails." BILL: Especially in the NFL...the league that leaks everything!" BEN: That's rights. It's the first thing they're gonna do is leak this sh*t. And I don't know, maybe it's funny, lovely sex messages from his wife. Maybe it's just friendly messages from his wife. Maybe it's...maybe Tom Brady is SO F***ING CLASSY and SUCH A F***ING GENTLEMAN that he doesn't want people to know that he may have reflected on his real opinion of some of his, uh, coworkers. Guys he plays with, guys he plays against...his real feelings. I wouldn't want guys who I didn't think were very good to know I didn't think they were very good. I wouldn't want guys who I thought were great to know I thought they were great. I'd want to keep my opinions to myself. Surely his opinions about professional football are contained in his email and his texts and on his f***ing telephone." but made no mention of the drunk rumors. He wrote, "For those of you keeping score at home, I gave exactly 18 f***s about my Pats. Upon reflection, 12 probably would have been sufficient. We Boston fans have always been known for our subtlety. One of my favorite interviews; hope you get to see the entire episode. #GoPats" Click here to listen to: ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY: BEN AFFLECK ON DEFLATEGATE

He goes on to say, "I really haven't had a chance to watch. But I think I've been working so hard for the last seven or eight years since I retired from football, that it's been a relief."

We don't have sex back into our happiness. That's how we know that there's something we have to talk about. We don't hate-f*** each other."

'BACHELORETTE' CONTESTANT DENIES BEING ON DATING SITES: One of the men currently competing for JoJo Fletcher's heart on The Bachelorette this season took to Twitter on Wednesday (June 22nd) to deny that he has been using dating apps and sites since being on the show. Jordan Rodgers wrote, "Completely false. Acct inactive since Feb + completely cancelled exact min phone was returned 2 me in May- Fact check." He later elaborated, "To all who are reading these false rumors I hastily wrote this, please excuse grammar. I had a Raya account through February. Unlike every other contestant on this show who was flown in for final selection and a finalized spot on the show in January, I was never contacted nor was the show even on my radar until early March. Just over a week before filming I was reached out to by a producer. I did not sign or agree to do the show until March 12, the day before we reported to Los Angeles for filming. My name was leaked before I ever gave a verbal agreement and in fact I said I would not do it, yet I was leaked anyway before agreeing." The statement continued, "Per contract, immediately after my filming on the show ends I cannot use these types of applications nor would I want to breach contract by doing so. I immediately deleted the profile as soon as I had access to do so. However the auto renewal had already been processed through the month of May and into June. Despite this I have not used this app, had it on my phone or accessed it in any capacity since my portion of filming was done...Any photos attempting to prove otherwise are old screenshots from before filming. These reports are false. I would not be dumb enough to breach my contract or do anything related to a dating app to give any insight to what may or may not have happened on the show." Jordan also wrote, "I have nothing to hide. I know what kind of man I am now, and I'm not a cheater."

I couldn't be more proud to be here and love my man the way I do. But let me assure you it hasn't been all roses the whole journey. There have been several tough years, in a row, ups and downs, bad attitudes and bad decisions, but we've persevered. We rode them out. We loved each other through them. We kept the focus; God's glory. We are both better for it. I'm so grateful and thankful for the man I married. Neither of us are perfect, far from it, and will continue to make mistakes because we are human." They have three kids together.
