If you want relationships to last, live by “for better or worse.” Honeymoon phases end. They just do. We’re animals, and animals aren’t inclined to copulate with just each other for the rest of their lives. So here’s a challenge: How do you keep redefining your relationship? I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually. Having kids was one of those great moments for me. Watching David become another level of person, mastering this other domain, made me look at him with a whole other set of appreciative eyes. That sort of made me re-fall in love with him. That’s another important thing to realize. Everyone falls out of love with everything. You fall out of love with your house. You fall out of love with your job. You just have to figure out ways to keep [the love] alive.
I am loving Neil Patrick Harris‘ interview in Glamour‘s September issue, and this quote about his marriage to David Burtka especially resonates with me. In friendships, work, relationships, and everything else, there seems to be a common belief that if something isn’t fun all the time, it’s not working. Life takes effort sometimes, and that’s the part we never see in romantic comedies. I really admire Neil for being upfront about that. Even though he lives right in the middle of the faux glitz of Hollywood, he always finds a way to be down to earth. [Glamour, Queerty] [Image via AKM-GSI]
After reading about Katy Perry, Neil Patrick-Harris and David Burtka‘s recent sushi meal at Park Restaurant in Montreal, I remain more fascinated by their fare than by the fact that Katy hangs with NPH and David. Why? Because their sushi was acupuncture-treated before it became their dinner. Keep reading »
“Humans Of New York,” a collection of street-style photos and interviews gathered throughout the city, is one of my favorite blogs in the world. I love how refreshingly honest and vulnerable it is in capturing people’s stories. Apparently, I’m not the only one — Vogue invited HONY creator Brandon Stanton to cover the Met Gala. Stanton usually photographs everyday people, so at the Met, he treated his celebrity subjects just like any other New Yorker he’d stop on the street. His street-style photos of the event are presented the same way his everyday photos are : captioned by a simple quotation without the subject’s name. Keep reading »
The amazing Neil Patrick Harris, who currently stars in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway, isn’t leaving much to the imagination on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, is he? Unfortunately, the actor was photographed by predatory perv Terry Richardson, which kinda kills my enthusiasm for this shot. Really, RS? Couldn’t you have hired someone else to hang a top hat on Doogie’s dick? [Rolling Stone]
Attention theatre nerds and “How I Met Your Mother” fans, alike. Gather ‘round, my children and see what happened on Thursday night’s episode of “Inside The Actor’s Studio.” In honor of the series finale of “HIMYM” and the Broadway revival of the legendary “Les Mis,” Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris performed an impromptu version of “The Confrontation” with Segel singing the part of Jean Valjean and NPH as Javert. Most impressive: they did it a cappella. They are true performers. I feel like this could happen for real. [People]
