JENNIFER LOPEZ shared that BEN AFFLECK proposed while she was enjoying a bubble bath.  She said, quote, “It was nothing fancy at all, but it was the most romantic thing I could’ve ever imagined.”

NFL quarterback CAM NEWTON said on a Barstool Sports podcast that a woman . . . to him . . . is one who can handle her own and knows how to cater to a man’s needs.  Obviously, a lot of people are calling his comments sexist.
