It’s only been a day since the fifth season of sell sunset was released on Netflix, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t powered (read: binged) our way. PSA, if you haven’t already, what are you waiting for? Anyway, for those who have made progress in the season, you may have been shocked to hear newbie Emma Hernan’s revelation that she corresponded with Ben Affleck on a dating app verified by celebrities. Yes, the same Ben Affleck who is engaged to Jennifer Lopez. So what is tea?

ICYMI, in a conversation with Chrishell Stause, Emma says: “He [Ben] may have texted me or not. He may or may not have asked for coffee a few times. I did not go. A shocked Chrishell responds, “You could have outwitted Bennifer!” He was on the hunt,” referencing Ben and J Lo’s rekindled romance.
