Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck’s Kids Help Them Host Food Drive On Thanksgiving Weekend – Photos

Before Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s family sat down to Thanksgiving dinner, the couple – and their kids – helped out those in need with a holiday food drive.

With Thanksgiving being a season of gratitude, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez took a moment to give back to those less fortunate than them. Over the holiday weekend, Ben, 49, and J.Lo, 52, hosted a food drive for Rise Against Hunter at his home in Pacific Palisades. In the photos of the food drive, Ben and Jen unloaded a truck packed with food, hauling in 50-pound bags of rice. Both Jen and Ben rolled up their sleeves – metaphorically in Jen’s case, as she opted for a beige turtleneck – to move some goods, with Ben even slinging two backs over his shoulders at a time. They had some help from Ben’s daughters, Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, as well as J.Lo’s 13-year-old daughter, Emme.

Jennifer and her twins – Emme and Max – arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday (Nov. 24) before the big day. The three arrived via a private plane and boarded a car. J.Lo rocked a heavy fur coat, having come filming The Mother in British Columbia, Canada. This was the first Thanksgiving since “Bennifer 2.0,” aka when Ben and Jen decided to give love a second chance. The two began dating in Spring 2021, following the end of Jennifer’s engagement to Alex Rodriguez. The couple has taken their love from Miami to St. Tropez and back again.

For Thanksgiving, however, the couple decided on Ben’s home in L.A. The two decided to turn this holiday into a “family affair,” blending their kids for the holiday. Their plans also included Ben’s ex,  Jennifer Garner. Ben and Jennifer “have been able to figure out their schedules to co-parent to their best intentions, and with that in mind, everyone is going to be seeing each other this holiday weekend,” an insider told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. That meant her and Ben’s kids – Violet, Seraphina, and 9-year-old Samuel – would get a chance to spend time with both their mom and dad.

With Thanksgiving in the books – and its leftovers filling up the fridge – Christmas is right around the corner. Whether or not J.Lo and her kids spend it with Ben and his brood remains to be seen. If such is the case, don’t expect any drama between J.Lo and Jennifer. The two have adjusted to being in each other’s worlds. The two Jens joined Ben and all of their children for some Halloween trick-or-treating. “There was [not] and will never be any weirdness when Jen and [J.Lo] are in the same room,” a source told HollywoodLife about the Halloween adventure. “They are adults, and when it comes to what is important, useless drama is not on that list.”

White House to Ship 400 Million Free N95 Masks Starting Next Week | Latest Celebrity News, Sports and Entertainment

White House to Ship 400 Million Free N95 Masks Starting Next Week | Latest Celebrity News, Sports and Entertainment

The White House plans to distribute 400 million N95 dust masks beginning next week at no cost, The Washington Post reported.

The news comes a day after the White House launched its website to distribute millions of free at-home COVID rapid antigen tests.

N95 respirator masks are tightly woven triple layered synthetic cloth masks typically worn by healthcare workers, painters, and factory workers to filter bacteria, dust, aerosol paint, and other large particles.

N95 masks are so-called because they filter out 95% of particles down to 0.3 microns.

The coronavirus measures around 0.1 microns or smaller.

In 2020, Pres. Joe Biden announced a joint effort with the US Postal Service to mail millions of blue surgical face masks to American homes.

However, late last year, the CDC finally admitted blue surgical masks are useless against the virus. Surgical masks were designed to trap larger bacteria – not virus.

The CDC recommended N95 or KN95 masks for adults and children to battle the mild Omicron virus.

The White House said the N95 masks will be distributed by the Strategic National Stockpile, which has about 750 million N95 masks.

You have to do the things that scare you in order to achieve the impossible and Atlanta-area entrepreneur Mz. Skittlez aka Mary Seats did it twice this past year. The girl boss made moves by unveiling a woman-only coworking space for businesswomen to curate and collaborate called The Bakery Co-work after previously opening the doors to her detailed GurlMobb museum with over 20 content rooms for Instagram creators looking to stand out.

Just last month, Skittlez made history by officially opening the doors to The Bakery, a space exclusive to women entrepreneurs.

As a brand strategist, Seats shares tips and opportunities with women entrepreneurs through Instagram while documenting her bold business maneuvers — including helping her client B. Simone secure her first million dollars in revenue by curating a social media campaign to document the journey. She also manages all of her “B. Simone Beauty” campaigns, something she hopes other women will do with their businesses in her Bakery workspace that features fancy amenities like an in-house cafe, wifi, conference rooms, beauty rooms, a general workspace, a photoshoot area, and more perks.

Skittlez told BOSSIP that the 14,000 square foot headquarters of The Bakery was built with ambitious women who live and work in Atlanta in mind.

“This has been one of the hardest projects I have worked on but I’m sure it will be the most fulfilling. I am beyond proud of my dedication and tenacity. This is for female entrepreneurs worldwide.?

Every inch of The Bakery’s picturesque workspace is available to members. Members can post up for the day if they don’t want to break the bank or they can choose to get a monthly pass. Upgrading to a monthly private suite is also an option, providing affordable private offices for women at The Bakery Co-work.

The GurlMobb Museum opened its doors in 2021 and recently got a makeover with 20 plus creative content rooms. Each room features a different theme for creators to make fun, eye-catching social media content.

 

The space is available for men, women, and creators of all ages.

With the rise of entrepreneurs making their coins on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook, The GurlMobb Museum is becoming Atlanta’s creative content epicenter. You can visit Gurl Mobb for more information.

Kanye West Kisses Julia Fox As She Straddles Him In Steamy New Photo

Kanye West Kisses Julia Fox As She Straddles Him In Steamy New Photo

As her romance with Kanye West heats up, Julia Fox shared some new behind-the-scenes photos of their love story — including one PDA-filled shot of her straddling the rapper!

Things are definitely heating up between Kanye West and Julia Fox! After the couple spent some time apart to attend their respective kids’ birthday parties, Julia reminisced about some of the hottest moments in their romance so far on her Instagram Story on Jan. 18. She shared one shot of herself sprawled across Kanye’s lap as he places a kiss on her forehead, which is facing away from the camera. She also posted a compilation video of some of their time together, including a kiss on the lips in the streets as paparazzi fired away with their cameras.

Even though Kanye and Julia just met on New Year’s Eve, they’ve clearly hit it off. Just days after their first encounter, they traveled from Miami to New York City for some dinner dates, and they even attended a Broadway show together while in the Big Apple. However, on the weekend of Jan. 15, the stars had some family matters to attend. Julia threw a first birthday party for her son, Valentino, who she shares with ex-husband, Peter Artemiev, on Jan. 17. The two reunited and appeared on good terms as they celebrated their baby boy.

Meanwhile, Kanye showed up at Kim’s birthday party for their daughter, Chicago West. His appearance wasn’t without some drama, though. Before videos surfaced of Kanye at the party, he took to Instagram Live to claim that Kim “wasn’t allowing” him to attend. “These are the kinds of games being played,” Kanye accused. “This is the kind of thing that has affected my health for the longest and Im just not playing.” After leaving the party, Kanye revealed that it was Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, Travis Scott, who filled him in on the party details so he could show up.

“I just gotta shout out Travis Scott for sending me the address and the time and making sure that I was able to spend that birthday memory with my daughter,” ‘Ye said. “I just saw everybody. Everyone had a great time and I was just happy to be there. My life centers around my children and I just had a great time today.” Kim has not publicly commented on the allegations Kanye made about not being allowed at the celebration. She filed for divorce from Kanye in Feb. 2021, and in December, asked a judge to declare the two “legally single” as the logistics are continued to be worked out.
