Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Jenny Slate engaged to Ben Shattuck

I adore Jenny Slate.  Be it her mousy voice that spews acerbic wit or the way she carries herself like a woman a foot taller than she is.  She’s just a really great strong female and I’m so happy to hear she’s found a love.

“He took me to France and made a picnic and made me feel happy and free and then he asked me to marry him and I screamed YES,” Slate, 37, wrote on Instagram.

“I love you, Ben Shattuck,” she continued. “You are the kindest and brightest and I am so grateful and here we go and keep going.”


“In an abandoned castle in southern France, I asked this woman to marry me,” Shattuck wrote in his own post.
