Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Had the ‘World’s Worst Wedding’

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard finally tied the knot earlier this month, but it wasn’t the grand affair you might have come to expect from Hollywood stars. In fact, they exchanged vows at the Beverly Hills courthouse, which doesn’t sound all that romantic or special (but sounds AWESOME because I would do the same – fuck a big ceremony! What a waste of money!)

Dax Shepard was on Jimmy Kimmel’s show on Tuesday night, where he admitted that they may have had the “world’s worst wedding” – at least as far as outsiders are concerned. It was perfect for them, however.

“So we went to the Beverly Hills Court House and all in, with fuel to get there, $142 out the door. Friends of ours came to the courthouse, and it was just Kristen and I at this lonely Court House, so they brought us this cake afterwards.

“‘World’s Worst Wedding.’ How many people can say they threw the ‘World’s Worst Wedding’?”

I dunno, I think it’s kind of romantic. After all, what’s the purpose of some massive expensive wedding, other than to show off how much money you have and to get as much attention on yourselves as possible? If you love someone, it doesn’t matter how many people are there or if you hired a private chef to create regional tapas with all-organic ingredients and hired out the most expensive lodge in Timbuktu. Seriously, it’s ONE DAY that people go into serious debt over. It’s baffling. I’m sure some of you may have had bigger weddings, so please let me in on this! I’m not being flippant, I’m legitimately curious as to the inspiration behind these massive days.
As for Kristen and Dax, I have a feeling they’re in it for the long haul, unlike some other celebrity couples

Kristen Bell Got Married At The Beverly Hills Courthouse

Kristen+Bell+Dax+Shepard+CMT

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard got quietly and spontaneously married at the Beverly Hills courthouse. Apparently they weren’t planning to wed yesterday (October 17) — they just wanted to get their marriage license — but somehow, it happened. From TMZ:

The couple had a no-frills ceremony at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office. We’re told there was a photographer present, and Kristen was crying.

According to eye witnesses, Kristen and Dax went to the clerk office just to get their marriage license — but when a court employee offered to marry them on the spot, they agreed … and conducted the ceremony in a nearby courtroom.

Well, that’s sweet. They just had a baby, too. A daughter they named Lincoln. So many damn celebrity weddings lately. Rose McGowan got married earlier this week.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Have a Baby And Give Her An Awesome Name

Infamous sloth lover and Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell is pretty adorable and so is her relationship with fiancé Dax Shepard (after all, anyone who surprises you with a real live sloth for your birthday is a keeper). The pair announced last year that they were expecting their first child together, and that baby came into the world on Thursday.


First of all, Lincoln Bell Shepard is such a great name for a girl. When I was a kid, I loved the idea of naming my future kids (which I no longer want, unfortch) typically boy names like Finn and Piper, which I now realize sounds like I’m starting my own troupe of Irish clog dancers, but whatevs. Second of all, what up, Aries? My birthday’s next weekend, which makes us zodiac twinz!!

Congrats to the happy couple – I bet that baby is cute as a button.

Viral Video: Kristen Bell Loves Sloths

Years went by before I really understood the appeal of Kristen Bell. I don’t know! I didn’t watch Veronica Mars, OK? But every time she appears on Craig Ferguson’s show, I just kind of die. Take the pre-taped Parisian episode, for example: Kristen Bell is running around in a striped shirt and a beret. And then they all go to dinner with Jean Reno and it’s like whaaaaat.

Anyway, the story is this. Kristen Bell celebrated her 31st birthday last July. Dax Shepard surprised her by inviting a sloth—YES, A SLOTH—to the party. Kristen Bell loves sloths. Oh, my God.

So when Kristen Bell realized there was a sloth in the house, she could not function.

“I start to have a full-fledged panic attack,” she tells Ellen DeGeneres. “I don’t—I don’t know how to compete with all this emotion, so I just kind of crawl up on the bed, and I’m crying so hard.

“And Dax knocks on the door, and he has a video camera, and he’s like, ‘Surprise! I want you to come onto the—are you all right?!’—and sees me basically fetal on the bed.”

Yes. Yes, Kristen Bell brought the footage.

Skip to 2:03 if you want to see Kristen Bell bats—t hysterical. She has completely lost her mind.

It is really sweet, but also terrible. When she barely ekes out an “I’m so excited!” at Dax, it’s, like, lung-collapsingly funny.

“I mean, I needed to be sedated, clearly,” Bell sighs.

Are You Going To Bother With Parenthood?

I am a huge fan of the 1989 Steve Martin movie Parenthood, so I was less than thrilled that the bright folks over at NBC decided to remake the classic comedy in to a TV show. Normally movie-to-TV (and TV-to-movie) remakes bum me out. There’s just never the same flavor there that made me love the original. However, after catching a preview for the show this weekend, my hopes are slightly higher. If you forget for a second that they’re trying to improve upon what I consider to be one of the funniest movies of my lifetime and just think of it as another hour-long dramedy, it seems like it might be pretty good.  Also, I love Dax Shepard and will give anything he makes a chance.

Check out these photos from the Parenthood premiere last night and LA and let me know in the comments if you’ll be tuning in as well. Also, what’s your least favorite adaptation/remake? Most of them suck, so I know you’ll be able to come up with some good ones.

So In Love!

Sorta-new Hollywood couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard giggle over a text message at LAX, after spending the weekend in Detroit.

It’s nice to see that Dax has found a new love after Kate Hudson systematically crushed his heart during her Kate Hudson Tour of Systematic Heart-Crushing earlier this year.

No luck so far for Owen. We haven’t seen much of him lately. I hope no news is good news!
