The fifth season of Netflix’s “Selling Sunset” has only been available on the platform for three days as of this writing, but it would take much longer to dissect all of its drama!
The season may have been overshadowed by Chrishell Stause’s surprising romance with Jason Oppenheim, but another Oppenheim Group agent has spilt some tea of her own!
Anyone who has remotely kept up with celeb culture lately, or those of us who will forever be nostalgic for the days of Juicy Couture sweatsuits or Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake‘s legendary head-to-toe denim couple’s outfit, are likely aware Affleck and Lopez are back together AND are destined to walk down the aisle once again!
Looking Back On ‘Bennifer’
Affleck and Lopez met while filming “Gigli.’ Despite performing poorly at the box office, the film brought the early ’00s It-couple together!
According to Us Weekly, the couple were engaged only a year after meeting, but their plans for tying the knot were halted by 2003 and they would announce their break-up by January 2004.
Fast forward nearly two decades after their break-up; the couple quietly began seeing each other in 2021 following “A heart-to-heart following their respective splits” with their previous partners, as per Us Weekly.
By Summer the lovebirds were openly dating and being photographed together.
So, What About Raya?

These ‘Bennifer’ spottings happened only a few months after Affleck had been in the news for using Raya, the star-studded dating app which Bustle called Raya’s selection process “Akin to getting into an Ivy League college.”
Affleck’s alleged time on Raya was brought into the spotlight via a TikTok user who shared a video featuring Affleck attempting to clarify his identity for her after she “Thought [the Raya match] was fake,” according to Page Six.
Affleck’s video message to Nivine Jay had been allegedly sent via Instagram, the publication added.
Did Affleck Really Connect With Emma Hernan?
Rumblings of Affleck spending time on elite dating apps seemed like ancient history.
That is, until, Hernan delved into details of her alleged Raya exchange with Affleck on an episode of the latest “Selling Sunset” season.
According to People, Stause asked “Remember when Ben Affleck went viral because he sent some girl…” and Hernan “chimed in” and replied, “He may or may not have been texting me.”
Talking about spilling some hot coffee!
Speaking of coffee dates, Hernan was coy with her co-workers when she told them, “He may or may not have asked to… grab coffee a few times.”
So, did the “Selling Sunset” beauty ever meet up with Affleck for a cup of java?
Any exchanges between the pair did not go any further than Hernan’s inbox!
Us Weekly reported Hernan and Affleck “Never met in person, though exchanged a series of ‘nice’ messages” on the app.
While some DM sliding may have been done between the pair, there may have been no exchanges at all if you ask Affleck’s team.
“Raya has confirmed that he has not been an active member for several years,” his representative’s statement for People read.
Hernan’s team also clarified any timeline related questions pertaining to their supposed DMs by revealing any interaction between the two happened in 2019.
‘Bennifer’ shippers needn’t worry: There’s no left over pining happening on Hernan’s part!
She is too busy to reflect on the past since meeting Micah McDonald, who, according to Us Weekly, is a “property developer.”
Whether we’re talking about rekindled romances or budding dating developments, there’s plenty of love to go around in Tinsel Town for sure!
