Jennifer Garner to Live Daytime TV Dreams

Jennifer Garner to Live Daytime TV Dreams

Mommy show host-to-be Jennifer Garner spends Sunday morning out with her precious daugther Violet.

First, the mommy-daughter duo made their daily visit to the Farmers Market where they stayed for almost an hour, buying fruit and flowers.

Jen, 35, and Violet, 17 months, then went to the playground at Palisades Park, where they spent the rest of the morning riding down slides and playing on the swings.

FYI: Jen is using her Maclaren stroller!

15+ pictures inside of Jen and Violet

    this baby is so happy…showered with so much loves, it reflects on her.

  • Rii

    I agree with Phoenix, Violet looks so happy and loved. She’s so adorable when she smiles. Beautiful pictures, thank you!

  • sara

    When my friend who works at pr firm told me that Nicole King was setting up all these paparazzi photos of Jen and Violet, I didn’t believe her but after the whole tv show for mom announcement, I’m starting to.

  • blue

    she seems very desperate and determined

  • Anon.

    The pictures are lovely. We’ve seen lots of similar pictures with Jen and Violet.
    I have to go back to my original feelings. I think it is totally wrong for paps or anyone to take pictures of the minor children of celebrities without their permission.Totally out of line. And actually, stalkers and other unstable people would love to know that these folk have a regular routine. Going to the farmer’s market (and thanks for telling us which farmers market) and then to the playground. These pictures, in the new instant digital age, can give us a pretty good idea of how to really find a celeb…or their kids. I think it is wrong. Not to mention scarey and disruptive to a baby who doesn’t understand.

  • http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums/f78/us-vogue-may-2007-worlds-next-top-models-55505.html Maniston Fans: MOVE ON

    I was watching Help TV yesturday and Lainey from LaineyGossip.com was there talking about celebs…how Maniston is a fake…how Brad and Angie are influential…and how some celebs get their publicists to call the paprazzi to tell them about their whereabouts.. I was shocked to hear that Lainey said Jennifer Garner does this.

  • Jill

    You can tell by these photos that Jennifer is enjoying being a mom and spending time with her daughter. Violet is adorable. :)

  • Ann

    After recently reading how she is staging many of her photo ops, especially with her child, I am totally repulsed. It all makes sense, seeing how she is “promoting” a possible mommy-style talk show. (Wondered how it was possible to see SO many pictures of her playing wth her daughter at the park, on walks etc.. to the point of being ridiculous…after all, she’s no Angelina or even Katie. where she is so famous that people are clamoring to see her at every turn) Turns out she’s been manipulating much of this. I, for one, will not be watching any show she comes up with. I find her totally boring. The way she dumped her former husband by cheating with her coworker was also a turnoff. She wants to act like the angelic girl-next-door and I think all along she has been quite manipulative.

  • Mmmmm

    None of you actually know where or not she is using this for PR … give me a break. Classic cases of using your kids are when you sell your kids 1st photos to mags and we all know is FAMOUS for that. She has no control over who follows her. She is clearly enjoying motherhood …

  • celia

    she spends an inordinate amount of time in the park. it is clearly manipulative. at some point you kinda have to wonder — does this bitch ever stay home?

    and Ben looks miserable in this relationship. JLo may not have been the best for him but she genuinely loved him. Jennifer Garner seems incapable of loving anyone — not even this daughter that she seizes every chance to put on display. it’s pathetic.

  • sacha

    The woman who is Jennifer’s partner in this mommy show is the wife of Patrick Whitesell. Whitesell is Ben Affleck’s agent at Endeavor. So it does make sense that Jennifer’s people alert the paps to take these photos. It helps drum up interest in her show, and she comes across as a good mommy.
    A lot of the so-called paparazzi photos we see here and on other sites are staged, with the PR flacks of actors alerting photographers on the whereabouts of their clients.

  • Amy

    I’ve never gotten the impression that Jennifer Garner is any kind of an attention-whore or that she plays the Hollywood game like others obviously do. It’s clear by the looks on both of their faces that she and her daughter have a very loving relationship. What matters beyond that?

    Also, who knows what happened at the end of her first marriage? It’s so easy to jump to conclusions about things when you’re only given bits and pieces of information. None of us know what goes on behind closed doors in someone else’s house – for all we know their marriage could have been ‘over’ long before she and Michael Vartan began seeing each other. You know what they say about people in glass houses…

  • Amy

    OMG! “she spends an inordinate amount of time in the park. it is clearly manipulative. at some point you kinda have to wonder — does this ***** ever stay home?” WTF??? Are you for real? Yes, bringing your child to the park and playing with her every day, or even [gasp] every other day, makes you a HORRIBLE and MANIPULATIVE person. Are you nuts?

    Your naivete is so quaint. But believe me, she wants the attention. She isnt as big a draw as tomkat’s kid or the Jolie-pitt’s kids so she doesnt have several cameras stuck in her kid’s face. She goes the same places all the time … the paps know because pics of the kids these days pay a lot of money.

    Jen wants the attention for her new show.. and she deliberately plays up the mommy role. Do you not think they have a yard that V could play in?

  • jackie

    Lainey hates Jennifer Garner, for whatever reason, and if you read her columns you see she can’t say a half-nice thing about her without complaining about how it hurts her to say it. About a month ago she reported that she had a source close to Garner who told her Garner was pregnant again and was telling all her friends. Then a few weeks later had to admit that source must have been wrong. So maybe her source on tipping off the paparazzi is wrong too. Just saying, Lainey can be entertaining but loves her conspiracy theories so much, she won’t let the truth get in the way of a good one.

  • Mmmmm

    Ola
    Just b/c Tom & Katie and JP’s PR their children doesnt mean all celeb families do ..

  • it is good

    I’m not sure about the success of Ben and Jen, but the love this woman feels for her child is evident. Where you people come from, I don’t know. She’s thrilled with her baby. Happy mothers produce happy children. Smiling and playing with your child gives them so much confidence and good feelings. All children should have this. Christie Brinkley is the same way. She looks on the bright side of situations no matter how bad.

  • Michael

    celia,
    There’s no need to be a damn asshole and call Jennifer a slur (the b-word). Yes, it’s a damn slur (no matter how damn popular it is). I don’t know why all you ladies are so determined to demonize being female. Only tools use slurs, esp. when there’s a host of actual swears to use: asshole, goddamn piece of shit, dumb fuck, etc. Enough w/ the bigotry.
    If the rumors are true of arranged photo ops: I think it’s just the Affleck’s way of controlling a problem. The paps will follow them no matter what, so might as well try and cut your losses.

  • bean

    Jennifer Garner’s an actress. Like all actors and actresses, she needs to get people to watch her work. So in her mind and for those managing her career, tipping off the paparazzi to take photos of her family is perfectly legitimate. Publicity is an important part of their work.

  • isacutie

    beautiful mom and daughter

  • Anon.

    I don’t think they tip the paps. I can tell sometimes from the look of disgust on Ben’s face and the anger on Jen’s face and the upset little baby, that Jen wouldn’t do that to her kid and they don’t like it. Lainey is crazy!!! What did she mean about Maniston??? Tell.

  • Shimmeringdew

    Regardless if the paps were called in or just zero’d in on their target – that sure is one happy baby…you can see it written all over her face!

  • xyz

    Reese was a bigger star than JG, but did we see her for straight several weeks with her kids. how does the paps knew they were in the park, grocery, shopping mall ? JG and BA was not that big nor famous anymore.

    Lots of celebrities do this..Every1 from Marica Cross, Britney Spears, Patrick Dempsey, etc,…

    To Mmmmm (16): Oh, just puleeeze! It’s almost a rarity that Suri is seen out and about with parents and the J/P’s children are only photographed being carried to and from school or to a plane. Whereas, Jennifer and Violet have been photographed in seperate shoots in the park, at the market, etc. as follows: 10 times in May, 10 times in April and 15 times in March. and that’s just for the last three months and doesn’t count the out and abouts of just Jen and/or Ben.

    To Sara (3), from up thread: No surprise to me. The number of photo ops above is very telling.

    To Anon (21) -There’s no anger on Jennifer’s face in any of the park and market photos when she’s with Violet.

    To Jackie (15) – Lainey tells it like it is. She knows what went on in Vancouver.

  • maxy

    you have to know that I love jennifer and her daughter and i really like to see her enjoy so much time with her daughter and violet looks really happy.

    but she is not beautiful I think, cute baby of course, but she has really big ears and too little eyes

  • Amy

    “Whereas, Jennifer and Violet have been photographed in seperate shoots in the park, at the market, etc. as follows: 10 times in May, 10 times in April and 15 times in March. and that’s just for the last three months and doesn’t count the out and abouts of just Jen and/or Ben.”

    I don’t know about you, but if they’d happened to be out only once a month and were photographed each time THAT would seem much more like a PR arrangement. The fact that they’ve apparently been photographed as many times as mentioned above (Seriously though, did you go back and count!?!?) seems more like they’re just living their livesa and the papps know where they hang out. I had a yard to play in when I grew up, but we wanted to go to the playground as much as our parents would take us there. Not just for the equipment, which I’m sure Ben and Jen can afford in their own yard and probably have, but because there were other kids there to play with. Not to mention our mom loved to get out of the house for a while.

  • Elle

    Oh my God you people are ridiculous! You’re ripping apart Jennifer Garner for being a publicity hound yet your precious Brad and Angelina are the prime examples of this! Do you really think that Brad and Angelina’s people don’t alert the paps when they’re in the middle of Africa or wherever the hell they happen to be doing charity work??? Funny how many photo ops that Brad and Angie have while doing charity work, yet there are so many others who silently help out without the pictures to prove what saints they are. Hollywood types use the paps for their own benefit, whether it be Jen Garner or Brad and Angie, it’s all the same.

  • lula29

    Isn’t Violet supposed to be a happy baby? I mean, what babies have we seen photos of that aren’t happy? Really, does this statement make any sense? No, it doesn’t. No celeb kid that I’ve seen looks miserable. They each have different little personalities, but I don’t see a look of misery on the face of any of them, and don’t think Violet is especially more happy or well adjusted then the other celeb babies.

  • Anna

    To Elle (28) – Yep, the JP’s rented a compound in Africa with a fence around it just so the paps could climb it and photograph their children. Pleae get real. They hire bodyguards to keep the paps away and the pap/bodyguard confrontations have made the news. As far as charity work, well that’s a no brainer. Ask Jen and Ben about that. Charity work is one thing, With child or children is another.

  • erfc

    I am so SICK OF STRIPED SHIT. It isn’t fashionable. It is ludicrous.

  • Taylor

    I’m no Jennifer Garner fan, but Lainey Gossip is an idiot. Take this disclaimer from her own site.

    “What you read on this site may or may not be true and Lainey Gossip does not guarantee or make any warranty as to the validity of any claims.”

    Although I may dislike Garner, Violet does seem like a happy baby and it seems like Jennifer really loves her.

  • Jenn

    A lot of these comments obviously weren’t posted by mothers. One person claimed that a backyard should be enough to play with your child. Any mother knows how antsy and isolated you feel if you don’t get out. Parks are fun–you’re able to get out and socialize with other mothers and children. Park trips ten times a month is nothing. My son and I are at the park at least twice a week. It’s what NORMAL parents do.

    I find it sad that Jen Garner is criticized for spending so much time with her child. Instead of it being a positive thing (like it ought to be) it’s twisted into something so horrible. She gets criticized for having her hair slightly wet, and tied up in a bun. She’s hated on for the clothes she chooses to wear. Give the woman a break–she’s doing the toughest job in the world.

    I think it’s apparent that she loves her child dearly and it is off-the-mark to say that she’s using her daughter for publicity purposes.

  • Mmmmm

    Anna,
    You are obviously not a mother if you have time to count how many times she has been with her kid .. bonehead!

  • emma

    i dont believe for a second jennifer tips off paparazzi.

    anyway jennifer seems devoted to her little girl, Jennifer seems silly and happy, and that reflects in her daughter, she looks very outgoing and happy too. cute pictures.

  • Anna

    I’m a mom, Mmmmm, three times. Never had the time though to take my kids to the park/market three/four times a week because I’m one of those millions of 8 to 5 working moms. Name callling is a little extreme don’t you think?

    BTW, it wasn’t difficult to find the number of times photos have been posted. One site tells all.

    —————————————–
    What other kids? Do you see any other kids in those pictures? Violet plays only with her mommy.

    I can imagine how “happy” Daddy Affleck is about all this new show “promotion”, papparazi and using his daughter for publicity. And he thought that it will be different with Jennifer Nr. 2! Oh Ben, you are so naive! Your wife manipulates you all the time!

  • PHONEY JEN

    SURPRISE SURPRISE MOMMIE DEAREST AT THE PARK AGAIN,,,SUCH A FAKE MOM A PHONY MOM ,FAKE SMILE, everything is so she can appeal to people for that gawd awful MrS PERFECT MOMMIE SHOW WITH HER AND BABY WONDER,,,SICKENING AND FAKE!!!POOR BEN!!!

    HA gotcha!

  • MissCarla

    I bet Jen has paparazzi following her and I doubt she alerts them as to her whereabouts. She has talked about moving her family to the east coast to escape them. I love these beautiful photos but feel a bit guilty as to contributing to the frenzy. These particular pics motivated me to waddle my 8 month pregnant butt down to the park with my daughter this morning.

  • STAGED!!!!!

    Phony #38 ARE you kiddding me???, whats the ‘I gotcha you’,'you cant getcha anyone’ on here, this is cyberspace freak,and I doubt anyone cares!anywayz I cant stand BARFLECK she is one ugly woman.she thinks her BABY is smarter than the average baby, yeah right, please ben go back to anyone instead of this floppy eared embarassment.Shes to low on the totem pole for our benben.

  • JEN PAPS.ARE HERE.OK

    Jenfakeahzoid is one of the worse dressed d-list >cough

  • Adoring Fan

    For whatever reason these pictures are posted I am very happy to see them. I love Jennifer and Violet Affleck. They are so beautiful and Ben is so lucky. (He is also kinda cute). I feel sorry for hateful people who say nasty things about Jen and her angel. If you are bothered by the photos..it’s simple…look away. Jealously always rears his ugly head. Stop being so materialistic and try being wholesome for a change. As much as I dislike the paps imposing on them…that is their job and I ‘m glad Jen handles the intrusions so well.

  • LisaM2

    Anna Angelina has her children photographed (staged photographs) whenever she wants something publicized. Thenshe has them sold. That is using children for publicity.

  • no shame jen g.

    JEN GARDNER using all her high school drama classes to pretend shes THE MOM OF THE YEAR.ITS disheartening that this is how desperate for FAME, she’ll pull a stunt like this.BEN WHY? WHY DID YOU LEAVE THE BEAUTIFUL JENNIFER LOPEZ FOR GOOFY?WHY BEN WHY?PLEASE GO BACK TO JEN L.its so not to late.That jen g. has no shame or class.

  • jenly stripes

    please get the stripe fashion disaster bag lady a stylist and beautician,she needs help.

  • A Person

    well. I do think the pic are arrange but don’t really care. I am not a fan of JG but I would blow her husband in a heartbeat. lol

    Anyway, I do think without a doubt she adores the time she spends with Violet that is a good thing.

    In picture 11, you can really tell lil V has her father’s mouth.

    I must say that all this mommie shyit is going to ruin both of their careers Ben image as a “bad boy” is what makes him so sexy and a box off draw.

    this mommie shyit will also ruin Angelina’s and Brads.

  • Virginia

    People need to relax, Jennifer Garner was out and about with Violet before any show announcement. This is her life, anyone who says she’s doing this for a photo-op is an idiot.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    All mother’s think their baby is the cutest and smartest, I take it your not a mother and god help your child if you ever become one! Your an mean, hateful person to rag on a little baby, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, but I suppose people who stoop as low to make remarks about a baby have no shame! Just goes to show what type of person you are. Your parents should be proud! NOT!
