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’?”

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.

Kristen Bell is adorable in every way, so I bet her daughter with Dax Shepard, little Lincoln Bell, is pretty cute, too. Kristen was on The Ellen Show last week to talk about… I dunno, sloths? Life? Motherhood? and said that having a baby has kind of been better than she even expected, which is cute.
There’s not much to say on this one, but have a look at her interview below:

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.
Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom’s beauty and dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!

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.

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.

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.
