Kristen and Dax: Can You Cheat Jealousy?
Huffington Post - 20 days
Kristen Bell recently shared how her husband, Dax Shepard, was her wingman at the Golden Globes so that she could meet her celebrity crush, Riz Ahmed. This is a perfect example of a relationship where both partners are secure and completely trust that, even though one may find another individual attractive, it won't challenge their fidelity. It's natural to see others as appealing, even when you're in a committed, monogamous relationship, but it is also important to remember that everyone's physical appearance changes. People get older, sometimes they get sick. Beauty is not enough to sustain an ongoing romance. If you know in your heart that you're always the most important person to your partner, then even if they have flirtations and/or a crush it will enable you to tolerate your partner's attention or interest in someone else without feeling threatened. So how do you get the trusting feeling that equips you to joust jealousy? Make sure you take the time to tell and show one anoth ...

Dax Shepard And Kristen Bell Bring The Funny In First 'CHiPs' Reboot Trailer
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Ponch and Jon ride again! Out of all the unnecessary reboots we’ve been subjected to over the past couple years, a “CHiPs” movie isn’t actually a half-bad idea. The successful series, which ran for six seasons on NBC, never took itself too seriously, and in this post-“21 Jump Street” era nothing sells like a good buddy cop comedy.  Written and directed by Dax Shepard, the reboot stars the “Parenthood” actor as California Highway Patrol cop Jon Baker, while Michael Peña plays partner Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, the classic role originated by Erik Estrada. Lucky for us, Shepard also recruited wife Kristen Bell to come on board to play his on-screen love interest, who seems less than thrilled with his motorcycle get-up.  Watch Shepard and Peña premiere the trailer and some motorcycle stunts they absolutely performed themselves on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” below.  “CHiPs” is set to hit theaters March 24. -- This feed and its contents are the pr ...

Sean Hayes Says He's 'Ashamed And Embarrassed' For Staying Closeted
Huffington Post - 4 months
Sean Hayes is now a proud gay man, but he has a few regrets about his coming out process ― namely, taking so long to address his sexuality in the first place.  The “Will & Grace” star was honored with the Trailblazer Award at Outfest’s 2016 Legacy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. In his nearly six-minute acceptance speech, the 46-year-old thanked the Outfest team for the award while offering a somewhat humbling recollection of his time spent in the public eye while still in the closet.  “Unfortunately, in my mind, my lucky break was inextricably tied to me thinking that I had to stay in the closet in order to keep moving forward,” Hayes said after receiving the award from fellow actor Dax Shepard. “Looking back at my choice to stay silent, I am ashamed and embarrassed. What was I thinking?” After years of being reluctant to address his personal life in interviews, the Emmy Award-winning actor opened up about his sexuality in a 2010 interview with The Advo ...

Dear Internet, Halle Berry Doesn’t Owe You Photos Of Her Kids’ Faces
Huffington Post - 5 months
Three years ago, Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner helped get the California Senate Bill 606 ― protecting children of public figures ― signed by Gov. Jerry Brown. Shortly after that, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, along with many other celebrity parents, launched the No Kids Policy, aiming to boycott any publication that runs photos of celebrity children taken by the paparazzi. It appears some people forgot about those efforts, because Berry recently had to shut down an Instagram troll who called her out for not showing the faces of her children in her social media posts.   On Thursday, the actress shared a photo of her kids, Nahla Aubry and Maceo Martinez, lounging in what appears to be their pajamas. Berry captioned the photo, which cuts out half her children’s faces, “❤️ ❤️.” ❤️ ❤️ A photo posted by Halle Berry (@halleberry) on Oct 5, 2016 at 12:14pm PDT Apparently, one of her followers was disappointed that Berry cropped the photo, writing in ...

"Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could," Jeff Goldblum famously said in Jurassic Park, "that they didn't stop to think if they should." Yes, he was talking about cloned dinosaurs at the time, but the charge could also be leveled at the Samsung scientists who designed a fridge with a huge touchscreen in the front. Samsung showed off the device at CES earlier this year, but only now seems to be justifying why it exists — with talking bottles of chocolate syrup. The company's new ad stars real-life celebrity couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, showing them pack away their groceries in Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator.
