Someone Should Tell Jennifer Garner It’s 2014 And Her Husband Needs To Pull His Weight
â€œLetâ€™s not overstate things,â€Â JenÂ said whenÂ JimmyÂ asked ifÂ BenÂ was Mr. Mom. â€œWe are divided down a very mom-dad line. If it has to do with making food, or doing homework or anything that has to do with actually functioning â€” sorry itâ€™s true â€” thatâ€™s a mom thing. And then coming in just as youâ€™re getting them to bed and picking them up by their heels and swinging them around, thatâ€™s a dad thing. Anything fun, that isÂ Ben.â€
If it has to do with functioning it’s a “mom thing?” I hate to break it to you Jen, but you’re getting screwed. Big time. Did Daredevil convince you that he’s worthless? He is a good actor, damn it.
This is such a weird thing to say on television in 2014. It confuses me because I know celebrities are all about their images and what they portray. They must think about what they are going to say before something major like the Tonight Show, don’t they? Or, no?
Maybe it’s just the celebrity disconnect. Who knows if people with this much money have to deal with all of the annoying things that us common folk do. My sister took a trip with me to Target with the kids last weekend, because my husband is gone for work and I need help. I would never be able to do everything that needs to be done in a household with two kids without the help of my partner.
All the annoying, tedious stuff that parents deal with daily – celebrities have help with that stuff, right? Does Jennifer Garner do her own grocery shopping and laundry, clean her own house and cook all her own meals? If so, and Ben is just waltzing in, twirling the kids around and placing them in bed – he’s an asshole. Or an evil genius. Or she’s a control freak. Or… I just can’t figure this out.
