How Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Plan to Manage 2 Babies

How Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Plan to Manage 2 Babies

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard will have their hands full with a toddler and a newborn when baby No. 2 arrives.

No surprise, then, that the couple – already parents to daughter Lincoln, 20 months – is looking forward to some well-deserved time off together.

“The baby’s going to arrive right when we wrap our shows and we are both taking off tons of time to just canoodle as a family,” Shepard, 39, shared with People.

As for juggling two babies, the couple admits they are in new territory.

“I think we’ll probably get through it just like everybody else does, which is we’ll put it together day by day,” Bell, 34, told the magazine with a laugh.

“We were told to pick up the oldest first if both are crying,” Shepard chimed in about advice they received for juggling two babies.

“It seems like a smart piece of advice. Since no one is imprinting memories of how you’re treating [Lincoln] already and the newborn doesn’t really know who’s holding them,” Bell added.

Joked Shepard, “We know the first one is great so we don’t want to ruin the first one. We’d rather roll the dice on the second one.”

Emily Blunt Reveals the Family Tradition She’s Passing On to Her Daughter

Emily Blunt Reveals the Family Tradition She’s Passing On to Her Daughter

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Emily Blunt said that as a child, it was a family tradition to read a story before bed.

Now that she's a mother herself, she's making sure to do the same with her daughter, Hazel.

"She's nine months old but she understands. She sits on me, this little thing, and she understands turning a page already and going on a journey," Blunt marveled during an interview with E! News. "I think it's amazing."

Blunt, 31, and her husband John Krasinski, 35, welcomed Hazel this past February. And while the Into the Woods star realizes that technology is changing the way we read, she still wants her daughter to appreciate physical books.

"I just want her to have that satisfaction I had as a kid of finishing a book and the chunk of it and the weight of it and putting the book down and it's done," she said. "You want things to be sensory for kids."

It doesn't help either that the actress is a self-proclaimed "dinosaur" when it comes to gadgets.

"I know I have to sort of go with the flow, and this is what's happening and it's this generation," she said. "She's going to teach me more than any computer class, I'm sure!"

Kendra Wilkinson Details Her Former Romance with Hugh Hefner

Kendra Wilkinson Details Her Former Romance with Hugh Hefner

Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) -- When Kendra Wilkinson moved into the Playboy Mansion at 18, she didn't know what to expect.

However, things became clearer a few weeks in.

"I didn't know that sex was involved because I knew nothing about Playboy. I just graduated high school," she explained in a clip from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!. "[But then] he's like, 'Do you wanna come upstairs?' [and I said] 'Sure, let's have fun.'"

Wilkinson, 29, said that Hefner, 88, considered his relationships with the women who live in the mansion "real relationships."

However, he was understanding when she came to him and told him that she planned to marry her husband, Hank Baskett, with whom she recently reconciled after a rocky period. (Hefner has moved on too: He married Crystal Harris in 2012.)

"I got married at the mansion!" she said. "It was like, over a million [dollars]. It was so beautiful."

Chris Rock, Other Celebs React Online to Ferguson Verdict

Chris Rock, Other Celebs React Online to Ferguson Verdict

Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Celebrities expressed sadness, frustration and disappointment across social media Monday after a grand jury in Missouri declined to bring charges against police officer Darren Wilson for the Aug. 9 shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown. 

Here are just some of the reactions:Basketball star LeBron James used the opportunity to harken back to the 2012 shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, posting an editorial cartoon on Instagram of Martin and Brown walking together with their arms draped across each other's shoulders.

"As a society how do we do better and stop things like this happening time after time!!" James wrote.  "I'm so sorry to these families. Violence is not the answer people. Retaliation isn't the solution as well. #PrayersUpToTheFamilies #WeHaveToDoBetter"Grammy-winner Pharrell Williams tweeted, "I'm heartbroken over the news of no indictment in Ferguson. Let's all pray for peace." 

Sleepy Hollow star Orlando Jones echoed the sentiment, and also suggested, "#NoJusticeNoProfit Maybe it's time to redefine Black Friday & flip the script on how & where we spend our dollars. #BlackLivesMatter."Like many, Cher disagreed with the grand jury's decision, but also spoke out against the protests that followed. 

"Violence is NOT the ANSWER!," she tweeted. "VOTE 2Change State Laws.There Must b Change in Attitude & BALANCE In Police & Lawmakers!"Chris Rock was among the most vocal in reacting online to the Ferguson verdict, tweeting numerous responses to the grand jury announcement, including, "Doesn't take 100 days to decide if murder is a crime, it takes 100 days to figure out how to tell people it isn't......" He also added, "now everybody after all this is over make sure to tweet about it for 3 days and then forget it ever happened like we do every time."

His tweets continued Tuesday morning, including one that included a video of orderly Ferguson protesters, with the caption, "Peaceful protesters didn't make it to television."

A few minutes later, Rock tweeted, "Pretty good morning so far. Bumped into a cop in line at Starbucks and didn't get shot six times. #Ferguson."In response to the flurry of opposing tweets that followed, Rock added just six minutes later, "Following someone on Twitter and complaining about what they tweet about is like calling someone to tell them you don't want to talk to them."

Movie Review: “Penguins of Madagascar” (Rated PG)

Movie Review: “Penguins of Madagascar” (Rated PG)

Fox(NEW YORK) -- I’m not sure anybody was asking for it, but the penguins from the Madagascar movies have their own film. Actually, it doesn’t matter whether anybody was asking for it, because the results make for one of the year’s most pleasant surprises -- and, perhaps, a viable and lucrative spin-off series. When we first meet Skipper, Kowalski and Rico, they’re little kids in Antarctica, marching…somewhere, with all of the other penguins, all of whom are perfectly content going wherever it is nature’s telling them to go. Skipper isn’t happy, though, when nobody leaves the line to rescue a runaway egg. When several of the older penguins explain that’s just the way it is, Skipper flops on his belly and, joined by  Kowalski and Rico, makes a mad dash to rescue the egg.The egg turns out to be holding adorable little Private. Ten years later, in a callback to Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, we hear Chris Rock’s Marty singing the “Afro-Circus” in the background as the four penguins, now adults and far away from Antarctica, stuff themselves into a circus cannon and shoot themselves toward Fort Knox. Obviously, they break into Fort Knox (because obviously, penguins can do that sort of thing), but I’m not going to tell you why. What I will tell you is the penguins are abducted by Dave (John Malkovich), an octopus disguised as a doctor. And Dave’s seeking revenge. Used to be, he was the main attraction at the Central Park Zoo -- until the cute penguins came along and upstaged him, at every zoo and every aquarium he went to around the world. The crazy octopus is working on some green concoction that will do some sort of harm to penguins, but we don’t know what. What we do know is, he must be stopped! Malkovich is the perfect voice for Dave, who isn’t just a great animated villain but also delivers the movie’s funniest lines -- and there’s plenty of funny dialogue to go around for both children and adults. You’ll love taking your kids to see Penguins of Madagascar, a funny, clever and adorable movie. Four out of five stars.

New Reality Show Follows Young Women Thinking About Becoming Nuns

New Reality Show Follows Young Women Thinking About Becoming Nuns

Don Bayley/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Reality meets spirituality in a reality show that debuts Tuesday night about a group of young women thinking about becoming nuns.The new Lifetime show The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns follows five young women leaving life as they know it behind as they consider taking the sacred vows and becoming nuns. The young women are in what's called the "discernment phase," where they live alongside nuns to figure out whether they're ready to put their faith above everything else.

“Women don't enter with halos. They don't come in holy,” one nun said in a preview of the show. “God called them from where they are, and they all come from different backgrounds. It will be very difficult.”"Difficult” meaning no boyfriends, no cellphones and no makeup, which the young women visibly struggle with on the show.“Religious life can be difficult, especially if you're running away from something,” the nun said. “We do have certain expectations of dress, that it certainly be modest, and that includes your makeup.”One young woman in the preview cries over this realization, saying, “But we can't have any makeup? I never even talk about my acne to anyone. It's something that's so personal. You don't understand when you look at yourself, and you're so scared that people aren't going to see you.”Another young woman confides in a nun that she feels “broken.”

The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns premieres Tuesday night at 10 p.m ET/PT on Lifetime.

Movie Review: “Horrible Bosses 2″ (Rated R)

Movie Review: “Horrible Bosses 2″ (Rated R)

Photo Credit: John P. Johnson/© 2014 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC.(NEW YORK) -- There are three Oscar winners in the cast of Horrible Bosses 2: Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, and Christoph Waltz. There’s also Chris Pine, the current face of the billion-dollar Star Trek sci-fi franchise, and Jennifer Aniston, hot off last year’s comedy hit, We’re the Millers. I haven’t even mentioned the three stars -- Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day -- all of whom bring their impressive bona fides to the table.  It takes every bit of this star power to overcome Horrible Bosses 2’s many shortcomings. After the surprising success of 2011’s Horrible Bosses, Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day) are now taking their destinies into their own hands by becoming entrepreneurs. They’ve invented something called a Shower Buddy, a shower head that dispenses not only water, but also soap and shampoo.

We’re reintroduced to the fellas when they go on a local TV morning show to discuss the product in hopes of attracting an investor. It’s the strongest, funniest sequence in the whole movie -- which is unfortunate, given that the majority of the film is yet to come. Despite an embarrassing visual during a demo of how the shower head works, and the inexplicably racist name of their company, they attract an investor, a multi-billion-dollar company run by Bert Hanson (Waltz), who tells the guys he’ll distribute their product if they get loan, open a factory and produce half-a-million Shower Buddies. But once they do, Bert reneges on the deal, leaving the guys in a very deep hole. Nick, Kurt and Dale hatch a plan to get their money back by kidnapping Bert’s obnoxious, cocky son, Rex, played by Chris Pine.  However, our heroes find every way possible to screw up their plan, to the point Rex actually forces them to kidnap him. It sounds funnier than it actually is. If you’re easily offended, you have no business seeing Horrible Bosses 2 because you will find some of it nauseatingly offensive. If, however, you believe nothing is sacred when it comes to comedy, then Horrible Bosses 2 will provide you a few laugh-out-loud moments, but not enough of them to justify the price of theater admission. Wait until you can stream it at home. Two-and-a-half out of five stars.

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- What do Zach Braff, Shia LaBeouf and Woody Allen have in common? They've all made GQ's "Least Influential People of 2014" list.According to GQ, Braff made the list because he used Kickstarter to fund his latest film, Wish I Was Here. "Who are these people who gave Zach Braff $3 million to make a Garden State do-over? Who has that kind of money to burn?" GQ wrote. "He should've just filmed himself rubbing that money on his armpits," GQ added.LaBeouf got his honor for a string of odd behavior incidents this past year. The magazine wrote, "enough with celebrities excusing their asinine behavior -- like, say, wearing paper bags over their heads -- by claiming they were conducting some kind of sociological experiment about HUMANITY."Meanwhile, Allen made the list for his box office dud, Magic in the Moonlight. "Does that movie feature yet another man wooing a woman who is half his age? Of course it does. Just to throw us off, Woody needs to make a movie where Justin Bieber nails Cloris Leachman," the mag quipped.Also on the list are Bono and U2, Johnny Depp and Robin Thicke. How I Met Your Mother co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas also made the GQ list for the show's much-maligned twist ending.

“Dancing with the Stars” Recap: Bethany Mota Eliminated

“Dancing with the Stars” Recap: Bethany Mota Eliminated

ABC/Adam Taylor(LOS ANGELES) -- YouTube star Bethany Mota and her pro partner Derek Hough were voted off ABC's Dancing with the Stars Monday on the first night of a two-night season 19 finale.After learning her fate, Mota, 19, told the audience, “I’ve discovered things about myself that...I never thought I could do. I was just hoping to make it past week two so to be in the finals was the best thing ever.”Hough, the brother of judge Julianne Hough, said he was proud of his partner and the show. “This has been an incredible season,” he said.Monday’s installment featured the finalists dancing two routines. For their first performance, the stars had to revisit the routine they did in their first week, under the tutelage of a member of the judges’ panel. The second routine, the freestyle, generally holds tremendous significance in determining the overall winner of the competition.The final three couples are actress Janel Parrish and Valentin Chmerkovskiy; actor Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson; and Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas.  The winner of the mirrorball trophy will be announced Tuesday night during a two-hour finale.Here’s a rundown of Monday night’s routines:Bethany Mota: The YouTube star reprised her jive, but a problem with a late-moving prop and a fumble cost her. “I’m sad because I saw tremendous improvement from week one...but we have the mistakes...,” Carrie Ann Inaba said. Bruno Tonioli, who gave Mota pointers during her rehearsal for this routine, told her she was “the ideal student” and said she did incredibly well. Head judge Len Goodman and judge Julianne Hough both agreed that Mota had improved tremendously since her debut on the show. Mota earned four 9s for a total of 36 out of a possible 40 points.Sadie Robertson: The Duck Dynasty star re-did her Week One samba with some pointers beforehand from Goodman and with cameos from her famous family. The routine made her father tear up, and the judges were full of praise. Hough said she loved it more than she did the first time, and Tonioli pointed out slight flaws in the timing even though he, too, said Robertson had soared to “unexpected heights” on the show. Inaba acknowledged that she didn’t expect to see Robertson in the finals, but added that the performance proved why she made it so far. Goodman said he liked that the routine had lots of basic samba steps paired with interesting choreography. He did point out that Robertson and her partner Mark Ballas lost sync for a brief time. Robertson earned two 10s and two 9s for a total of 38 points.Janel Parrish: Although she was dancing with an injury that caused her to miss several days of rehearsal, Parrish's samba -- with rehearsal tips from Julianne Hough -– earned her a standing ovation from the ballroom audience. The judges noted that her injury appeared to have some impact on her performance. Tonioli told Parrish she “lost balance a little bit” and added, “it’s probably because of your injury and it’s such a shame because it was a wonderful, wonderful dance.” Inaba told Parrish she was a “warrior dancer.” Goodman said he didn’t notice any mistakes on the turns. “What I did see what great, rhythmic dancing with a clarity and sharpness to it,” he said. Hough said Parrish should work with her partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy through the adversity. “You got this, girl!” Hough said. Parrish, who teared up after her performance, earned a 10 and three 9s for a total of 37 points.Antonio Ribeiro: The actor danced the jive, and despite a back injury, earned a sustained standing ovation from the ballroom audience and a perfect score from the judges. “It was amazing!” Inaba said. “I don’t know how it was so much better than the first time.” Goodman told Ribeiro: “You dance like Frank Sinatra sings. He’s easy on the ear. You are easy on the eyes.” Hough told Ribeiro that there “was not one thing” that he missed in the routine, and an enthusiastic Tonioli cheered “Hooray for you!” Ribeiro and partner Witney Carson earned four 10s, for 40 points.Freestyle Routine:Bethany Mota: Her powerful, dramatic freestyle earned her a standing ovation and high praise from the judges. Inaba said the performance was spectacular, and Hough said Mota “couldn’t have done a better job.” Tonioli told Mota that she had the makings of a leader, and Goodman added: “I got just what I expected. Great lifts. Drama. This is a five-star freestyle!” Mota earned four 10s, for 40 points.Sadie Robertson: In her freestyle, Robertson’s and her partner played iconic video game characters in a unique routine that had the judges raving. “Game over!” Hough declared, adding: “That was the cutest thing I have ever seen.” Tonioli called the routine “refreshing,” telling Robertson’s pro partner, Mark Ballas, that the routine was “totally inspired,” and adding: “Watching this, I felt like a child again. I was hit by wave upon wave of absolute joy. Thank you.” Inaba said the routine was “the most memorable freestyle we’ve seen in ages,” while Goodman said he would never forget the routine. Robertson earned four 10s for a total of 40 points.Janel Parrish: The actress’ contemporary routine earned her glowing reviews from the judges. Tonioli called it “the visualization of a love poem, so moving and deeply felt...hypnotically beautiful.” Inaba said the routine “changed us for a minute,” adding, “to me, that is what being an artist is about.” Goodman said the routine combined athleticism with artistry, calling it “fantastic.” Hough said the routine was “absolutely breathtaking.” Parrish earned four 10s, for a total of 40 points.Alfonso Ribeiro: The actor’s freestyle combined snippets from all his prior performances, and incorporated a tap dance solo. The routine brought the house down, and judges were equally appreciative. “And that’s how you tap your way to the top. I’m telling you, this really was [an] in-your-face, undeniable show stopper in the great American way,” Tonioli said. Goodman called the performance “an all-you-can-eat buffet of great dancing fun,” and Inaba said it was “the ultimate in freestyle.” Ribeiro earned four 10s for 40 points.Monday’s scores (first routine, freestyle, grand total):Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson: 40; 40. Total: 80Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas: 38; 40. Total: 78Janel Parrish and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: 37; 40. Total: 77Bethany Mota and Derek Hough: 36; 40. Total: 76  (Mota was voted off.)The winner will be announced Tuesday night during a two-hour results show that begins at 9 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.

Sting to Join the Cast of His Musical ‘The Last Ship’ Starting Dec. 9

Sting to Join the Cast of His Musical ‘The Last Ship’ Starting Dec. 9

Mike Pont/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- The idea was floated earlier this month, but now it's a reality: Sting will join the cast of his Broadway musical The Last Ship, in an effort to help boost ticket sales.The news was confirmed on Sting's website: he'll take on the role of Jackie White, the foreman of a British shipyard, in the musical. His run starts December 9, and he'll do eight shows a week through January 10. The New York Times reports that in his role as White, he'll be in "about 40%" of the show. Despite decent reviews, The New York Times reports that the show has been losing $75,000 per week since it opened September 29.Sting told the newspaper because he's been working on the show for so long, he "knows all the lines and lyrics after all these years," so it's not as though he's unprepared. He also told the Times he'd bare his butt "in Macy's, if it will help our show."Jeffrey Seller, lead producer of The Last Ship, tells The New York Times the show needs "a boost...some ammo."  He says he asked Sting to join the cast, with an eye towards keeping momentum going long enough so that the show can win a Tony award in June.Sting can't remain in the show indefinitely, however: he's scheduled to resume his tour with Paul Simon January 30 in New Zealand.A week ago at a red carpet event, when asked if he'd be appearing in The Last Ship, Sting said, "Don't think I need to be at the moment." Obviously, that has changed. He also told reporters, regarding the show's good reviews versus its lagging ticket sales, "We fight a battle every night and we win that battle hands down in the theater, and that word of mouth is great. But it's a challenge, y'know. It's not an easy world, Broadway, it's tough. But I'm having the time of my life, I'll tell ya!"

How Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Death Affected “Hunger Games Mockingjay 1″

How Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Death Affected “Hunger Games Mockingjay 1″

Lionsgate(LOS ANGELES) -- When Philip Seymour Hoffman died this past February, he was in the middle of shooting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.His death, of acute mixed drug intoxication, rocked his co-stars and colleagues."It was about as horrible a thing that can happen. It was just completely tragic. It threw us all," director Francis Lawrence told Vulture. "There were two substantial scenes that he had left, scenes with dialogue. All the other scenes he had were appearances in scenes where he had no dialogue."Hoffman, who was 46 at the time of his death, played Plutarch Heavensbee in the franchise films -- a role he originated in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Recreating him digitally was never even a consideration, Lawrence said."We decided to rewrite the scenes and give his dialogue to other [actors]," he explained. "There's a scene in Mockingjay Part 1 that Elizabeth Banks took over for, and there's a scene in Mockingjay Part 2 that Woody Harrelson took over for."Still, the loss of Hoffman created deep sense of sadness for everybody working on the project. Going to work became difficult."It was a really tough, emotional time," Lawrence said, "and tough getting back into work and trying to find a groove again."

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- When fans run into any of the former cast from Friends, the same question is always brought up -- "Will there be a reunion?"Well, Jennifer Aniston, who played "gal pal" Rachel Green on the show, has a different idea and revealed what she'd be up for during a chat on the Graham Norton Show.Aniston stopped by the show to promote her new movie Horrible Bosses 2, alongside Jason Bateman."At this point, I feel like honestly we should just wait," she said of the show that ended in 2004. "I say we just wait till we are much older and just be old and friends."She said, if the cast waits, people won't be wondering about the physical changes or any comparisons to the cast a decade ago.After Graham Norton suggested a depressing reunion so that no one would want to see them again, Aniston, 45, said, "Oh no, dead Friends. ...Then, we'll know that there's no reunion to have!"Aniston also dished about her famous hairdo the "Rachel," which she admits was only on for like a season."So, that baby had some legs," she said. "Well, Chris McMillan, who we all know and love, he was loaded when he gave me the haircut. Stoned out of his mind, so, which is true, and he didn't think about, 'Oh, she's going to have to do this herself. Look, I'm having a great time being creative with this blow dryer and he leaves me with a round brush and a hair dryer. I don't know how to make it look like that!'"She added it was "hair hell" for a girl.

Reynolds revealed what he's most looking forward to about the new addition. “I’m just excited about having a buddy,” he said, adding, “We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet, but whatever it is, you have this tether to reality that never goes away.”

The actor also said he's not concerned about messing up as a first-time father.

“For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make,” he said. “I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error.”

There's no word on when Lively and Reynolds, who wed in 2012, are expecting their bundle of joy.
