Comedian Dax Shepard penned a really heartfelt and touching tribute to his late father on his official Tumblr page. It’s sad and heartbreaking, really. Seriously, if you could get through the entire passage dedicated to his father,Dave Robert Shepard, Sr. and do not shed a tear or feel some semblance of emotion, then you don’t have a heart.
Dax’s father passed away on New Year’s Eve and while they didn’t share a lot together during the course of his life, but they chose to make Dave’s cancer ashared project. They handled all of the details together, as a team. Read more…
Did you watch all of the election coverage last night? We did, and we weren’t the only ones. Celebs were all fired up on Twitter last night as they waited for the election returns come in. We gathered up some of the best, funniest Twitter responses — including RuPaul‘s amazing “Drag Race” comments (which have been retweeted more than 26,000 times), above — after the jump!

How cute are BFFs Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell? I friggin’ love that Kristen Bell is wearing jeans that are technically “ankle length,” but since she’s such a micro-mini person, they actually look long on her. We’ve found those cute jeans, along with everything else that Kristen and Rachel are wearing, and you can have it all by clicking after the jump.

We’ve been waiting for someone to come up with a solid spoof of “The Bachelor,” and Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino have finally done it. Their show, “Burning Love,” features Marino as the typical clueless, self-centered bachelor, weeding through a classic assortment of hysterical lunatics and weirdos to find “true love.” Kristen Bell, Malin Ackerman and Ken Jeong — as delectable choice Ballerina — all play potential love matches, as does Jen Aniston in a surprise (big surprise!) cameo.
As anybody who reads The Frisky knows, there’s been a 500 percent increase in sloth coverage since I’ve been hired. That’s because I’m obsessed with them, and hope that one day I will be able to hang out with them, cuddle them and love them. Kristen Bell is obsessed with them, too. And her boyfriend Dax Shepard surprised her this year with a visit from one on her birthday — with unintended results. [Ellen]
Oh, Hollywood. Even as it’s sleeting and grey-as-can-be outside, you have brought some news that makes it seem as if it were a bright sunshiny day. First, I am very excited to hear that Kristen Bell, who I adored on “Veronica Mars,” may be headed back to the small screen in the Showtime series, “House of Lies,” which has been greenlighted for a pilot. Kristen will co-star with Don Cheadle in the series about two competing corporate management consulting firms as Ivy league grad, Jeannie Van Der Hooven. Hello, Serena Van Der Woodsen. [TV Squad]
Also exciting: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks for a role in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Keep reading »
If you love burlesque like I do, you might have had mixed feelings when you heard about the movie “Burlesque.” Just how badly might Christina Aguilera and Cher butcher this thing that I love? But on the other hand, how awful can a movie be if Stanley Tucci is in it?
I had to get to the bottom of this caper, so I wrangled two hungover New York City burlesque stars, Anita Cookie and Clams Casino, for a Friday afternoon showing of “Burlesque.” I am sure you will be shocked — shocked! — to learn that Hollywood took some creative liberties with the art of burlesque. (Spoilers ahead!) Keep reading »
Normally, sequels aren’t my thing. But I am getting pretty pumped for “Scream 4.” We already knew that Emma Roberts, niece of Julia, was starring and that Hayden Panetierre was playing her bestie. And that Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette would be reviving their iconic roles. Now some new players have been added to the mix. Apparently, Anna Paquin has been cast in the flick! As has the amazing Kristen Bell of “Veronica Mars!” And Shenae Grimes, who you probably know from “90210″ but was far superior on “Degrassi“! The speculation is that these three will be aufed in the opening scene, like Drew Barrymore in the original. But who knows. We’ll have to wait until next April to see. [NY Post] Keep reading »
