«It still takes a lot of work, but we are choosing to be this happy because the other choice is, what, choosing to be unhappy? No thanks,» she said when I told her it always looks like the two of them have so much fun together. She went on to describe the hiccup they actually went through very, very early in their relationship that resulted in a breakup. «We were dating for about three months, and I already knew that I was in love with him and he was hesitant because he knew he was still dating other people,» she said of when they got together 10 years ago. «He sat me down and said, ‘I can’t have this right now. I think you’re wonderful, but I am still dating other people.’ And then I, like, liquefied and fell to the ground, but I felt incredibly respected that he had the balls to tell me we weren’t in the same place.»
She said she left that conversation thinking he had just made a huge mistake, but she knew she’d get through it. And sure enough, she said, he called her just four days later and said he screwed up. «He called me and he was like, ‘I don’t know what I was thinking. I was dating someone else but they’re just not as interesting as you, and I don’t know what I’m doing,’ and he came back,» she continued. «But I still always remind him of when he broke up with me.»
The Tacopocalypse is upon us: Are you prepared? Lyft recently announced that it’s testing a feature called “Taco Mode,” in which riders can push a button and their driver will take them to the nearest Taco Bell drive through.
Taco Bell will test “Taco Mode” in Orange County, California, from July 27 to 29 and August 3 to 5, with plans to expand the service across the US in 2018. In addition to providing passengers the ability to order drive-thru Taco Bell, Taco Mode also includes a custom in-car menu, free Doritos Locos tacos, and what the company calls a “taco-themed car.”
What could go wrong? I’m sure Lyft’s drivers are just thrilled to bits about this news. Driving drunk people around is already the worst, so what do you call something that’s worse than worst? Well, welcome to Taco-geddon.
Anybody who has ever drunk-ordered Taco Bell knows how it goes down. First, you’re drunk and Taco Bell seems like the best idea in the history of ideas. You sit in the car, huffing exhaust while you wait in line, which is hella long because all the bars just closed and you were not the only person to have the greatest idea of all time. As soon as it’s your turn to order you get the giggles and have to pull your shit together to talk into the box. Homegirl in the back can’t make up her damn mind about how many tacos she thinks she can neck. You get to the window and realize you spent your last $ 20 at the bar and have to dig under the seats for loose change. You still don’t have enough, so everybody in the back has to also look for loose change. You’re still $ 2.38 short, so you cancel the chalupa. You exit the drive through with your hot garbage food, pull over to the curb and set upon it like a pack of dingoes at a daycare center. Bean burrito wrappers are flying, sauce packets are squirting, whoever the fuck ordered the Mexican Pizza belches loudly. Homegirl overestimated how many tacos she could neck and lets the last, unfinished one slide out of her hand onto the floor of the back seat. Shredded lettuce litters the car as if it were shot from a confetti cannon. Somehow there are not enough napkins and too many napkins. Everybody is now sick and full of regret. This my friends, is “Taco Mode.” Sorry Lyft drivers, your car is now a “taco-themed car.”
I hope will all live to see the sunrise on August 6th.
When Kristen Bell loves something, she loves hard; we’ve seen this with her obsession with sloths, her commitment to family, and, of course, her die-hard Game of Thrones fandom. Kristen’s love for the Seven Kingdoms didn’t start at the LA premiere, though; she and Dax have been geeking out over the show over the years (they’ve even gotten their kids and dogs involved, not to mention a poor Anna doll from Frozen). Read on to see just how deep Kristen’s GoT love runs.
Hi all! I’m C.J. and just starting today with Dlisted. Like J Harvey, I’m from Boston, but I don’t have a cah to pahk in the yahd, unfortunately. And I apologize in advance for the uptick in Jane Pauley-related posts, but she’s a national treasure and long overdue for her moment! In the meantime….
Ryan Murphy is somewhere praying Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banksstart fighting again ASAP because F/X is going to be F/X/Y/Zzzzzzzz if Feud 17 has to be about Drake Bellnot getting the invite to Josh Peck’s wedding and crying about it. John Stamos, Josh’s Grandfathered co-star, Instagrammed a photo where he’s posing like Fabio on the cover of a Dollar Tree romance novel and boasted how he got the invite and didn’t even want to go.
Hear that, Drake? Uncle Jesse didn’t want to even be there, and he still went. Probably just for the baked potato bar and because who doesn’t like to have a reason to dance to Love Shack? Just kidding, Stamos seems to love Drake Bell almost as much as he loves the Full House paycheck revival by also Instagramming his love for the married couple:
Drake Bell seems to have put down his little violin and moved on. His Twitter has been less about Nickelodeon wedding snubs and more about his newly released EP. He even told People, “He’s been my best friend for 18 years. In all honesty, we talk all the time, we’ve been talking. I was just expecting…” No clue what he was actually expecting, but I’m still expecting Catherine Zeta-Jones to play John Stamos in Feud 17.
If you’re a young millennial, then you’re probably familiar with a little show called Drake & Josh. The iconic Dan Schneider sitcom starred Drake Bell and Josh Peck and was basically a pivotal part of our teenage years (you know, way before the days of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody). While the two actors had a real-life bromance during their Nickelodeon days, it seems like their friendship isn’t as strong as it used to be.
After Josh tied the knot with his girlfriend, Paige O’Brien, this month, Drake threw some major shade on social media after not getting an invite. «Loyalty is key,» he wrote in a comment that has since been deleted. «ALWAYS remember where you came from.» While Josh was reportedly «hurt» by the comments, it was just as big of a blow for their dedicated fans. Even though they’re not really on speaking terms right now, we can still look back on the good ole days and hope that they’ll find a way, find a way to be friends again.
Josh Peck and Drake Bell have appeared on multiple Nickelodeon TV shows together (The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, the two Drake & Josh specials). But that was clearly a long time ago. Josh is no longer a chubby kid in a series of bad wigs, and Drake has moved on to the messy former child star chapter of his life. By all accounts, they’re not close. That didn’t stop Drake from pouting online about not getting an invitation to Josh’s wedding.
Josh Peck married his girlfriend Paige O’Brien on Saturday. E! News says that several fans wondered online why Drake Bell was MIA from the wedding. Drake took his complaints to Twitter and tweeted (then deleted) “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear…” which was followed by “Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from.”
That’s not to say Josh didn’t invite any of his former co-workers to his wedding. On the contrary, E! says the guest list included his Grandfathered co-star John Stamos, as well as the mom of the two 4-year-old twins who plays Josh’s on-screen daughter.
I’m sure there’s a very good reason for why Drake didn’t get invited. Weddings are expensive, and Josh probably only had enough money left in the budget for one extra celebrity guest. And when it comes down to it, you know he’s always going to keep a seat open for Oprah.
I’m not going to pretend to know anything abut Drake and Josh for the benefit of this post. The Nickelodeon series was after my time as a kid, so my first exposure to either Drake Bell or Josh Peck was the terrific 2008 Josh Peck film The Wackness (which also introduced us to Olivia Thirlby, who disappointingly did not become a thing, as I had hoped). From my recollection of my review of The Wackness, many of our readers alerted me to the fact that Peck was the heavier-set individual in the Drake and Josh duo, which I found surprising at the time:
Anyway, Josh and Drake had a sitcom together. It ran for four seasons and 57 episodes, which I suppose means to those who grew up in the aughts that Josh and Drake are obligated to remain friends forever. Apparently, Drake Bell also believes this because he was surprised and saddened to learn that he was not invited to Josh Peck’s wedding.
Apparently Bell had been replaced by John Stamos, which I guess is a bit like Will Smith replacing DJ Jazzy Jeff as his best friend with Tom Cruise.
The Internet was apparently rather upset by this development, and while I do not share in that grief, I will bring it to your attention.
Man, these models just love putting athletes on blast when they try to shoot their shot don’t they? It was funny the first few times, but now it seems like these chicks know that if they out these guys, they’re going to go viral.
Le’Veon Bell is the latest victim of a DM slide gone bad. He tried to spit a little game to IG model Karen_Vi, and before he could even get a second message in there, she had already put him on blast on her story.
Also, I’m doing exactly what Karen_Vi wants me to do right now. If she accepts his DM like thousands of these chicks do with athletes, we never hear about her.
But if she does what she did, she gets websites to write about her. Smart move and I fell into the trap.
Kristen Bell is a total pro at hosting late-night television. On Thursday, the actress subbed in for Jimmy Kimmel, who stayed at home to be with his newborn son Billy. After delivering a hilarious opening monologue, the mom of two also helped one lucky high school student pull off an incredible Frozen-themed promposal. During a fake game of «The Fast and the Frozenest,» one girl in the audience got a huge surprise when the masked Kristoff she was tasked with finding was actually one of her high school classmates. Kristen then channeled her famous character, Anna, to sing a revised version of «Do You Want to Build a Snowman?» to help him ask her to prom. With a grand gesture like that, she couldn’t help but say yes.
