The Way They Were: Looking Back at Drake Bell and Josh Peck’s Bromance

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.

Drake Bell Is Really Mad He Wasn’t Invited To Josh Peck’s Wedding


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.

The Internet (and Drake Bell) is Really Sad about ‘Drake & Josh’ Falling Out

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.

I think that’s probably enough Twitter sadness for this particular situation. I’m still not over the fact that Little Stevie from Malcolm in the Middle had a falling out with Frankie Muniz.

Le’Veon Bell Gets Exposed By An IG Model After He Slid Into Her DMs

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.

Let’s never forget the most infamous DM slide

This Frozen-Themed Promposal With Kristen Bell Is Both Adorable and Incredibly Awkward

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.

Page Six Says That Hollywood Hates Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard

CHIPs Los Angeles Premiere

Today must be Random Hollywood Feud Day.

For a few years now, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been pushing the hard sell on just how open they can be about each other and their relationship. No matter how gross or personal, nothing is off-limits. They overshare about everything from the story about his surprise vasectomy to the story about her jar-peeing. There are some people who may be into Kristen and Dax’s oversharing, but according to Page Six, Hollywood isn’t one of them. Hollywood allegedly hates them and thinks they’re overexposed. Anyone who hates their corny-ass Samsung commercials is probably with Hollywood.

Page Six alleges that Kristen and Dax’s most recent press tour to promote CHiPs, the third movie they’ve appeared in together, is the final nail in the coffin. Here’s Page Six’s list of things Kristen and Dax have done to allegedly piss off Hollywood.

“[Talking about] marital therapy, her breastfeeding issues, fights over furniture, Google searches for ‘murdering my husband’, his fearlessness about directing naked, quitting sugar.”

In case you wanted some first-hand evidence of Kristen and Dax’s press tour of TMI terror, here they are on The View yesterday.

Hollywood needs to relax. Of course they’re overexposed. They’ve got a movie to hustle. Plus, on the scale of celebrity overexposure, I wouldn’t even list them that high. Sure, they’re up there, but they’re not at Kardashian levels. Once Dax slaps his face on a line of frozen shepherd’s pies and Kristen starts doing infomercials for a line of sloth-specific hemorrhoid creams, then we’ll talk.

But I didn’t realize that saying eye-roll-worthy shit about sugar was that much of a deal breaker in Hollywood. Gwyneth Paltrow must be terrified right now.

Here’s Kristen and Dax (and Dax’s co-star Michael Peña) at the Hollywood premiere of CHiPs on Monday. Have fun, you two. If Hollywood has its way, it could be your last!

We did it, my friends. WE DID IT! Jared Leto defeated Kim Kardashian and is moving on to the Elite Eight of FUUUUUUUUG MAAAAADNESSSSSS! Omg, I’m so relieved now. I feel all giddy and smiley. I don’t really care who you vote for in any of the other brackets (FOR NOW), but in this one, I saw this Bella person on Snoop and Martha’s Potluck Dinner Party show (which, if you are NOT watching it, why? WHY are you not watching it!? Why?) and her laugh bugged the crap out of me. So, anyway… — (GFY)

John Mayer likes talking about his life in similes and metaphors. «At 32 and obsessed with outsmarting the idea of a «clichéd rock star,» he explained, «I started to invent my own grenade.» (His big mouth.) He was «a Mack Truck without brakes.» Tabloid fame was «a human-growth hormone» and «extracurricular stuff» anyway, Mr. Mayer said. «I basically realized I’m no good at that, so I’m going to drop that major.» Also: «What I did was probably semiconsciously just reboot it — control, alt, delete.» «It was an induced coma.» His career had «flatlined.» «It was cat and mouse,» he said, «and the mouse lost.»» … ‘k. — (Lainey)

Blackboardmonitor was mildly intrigued when she heard Hogarth was putting out a series of modern retellings of Shakespeare. She became excited when they found out Margaret Atwood had retold her favorite play, The Tempest, as Hag-Seed. "This novel is a joyous celebration of both Shakespeare and theater in general." Five stars. (Cannonball Read 9)

I can’t even believe it’s almost summer, but it really is not that far away. It’s so close that the marketing has started for the new Spider-Man Homecoming!

Happy Friday! Step away from the internet and the bullshit going down in DC this weekend. Enjoy the time with your loved ones or your precious time alone. If it’s nice where you are, go outside and enjoy the beautiful spring. If it’s crappy outside, stay inside and bundle up with a good book and some cocoa. Be as content as Patrick Stewart’s «foster» dog Ginger here as she snores her cares away.


Dax Shepard Makes Sure Kristen Bell Is the No. 1 Suspect If He’s Ever Murdered

Dax Shepard is taking all sorts of steps to secure his future (if he makes it there). After the CHiPs actor got bumped from the Wednesday spot on Late Night With Seth Meyers in favor of a much bigger star (his wife, Kristen Bell), the actress used her time on the show to talk about the couple’s interesting dynamic. While chatting with Seth about her recent interview with Dateline‘s Keith Morrison, Kristen revealed that she actually really needed to talk to him because of something suspicious Dax did on her phone. «My husband googled from my phone, as a prank, ‘How do I get away with murdering my husband?'» Seth then asked, «What’s the prank though?» to which she responded, «That I’m on some watch list I guess.» She then said she asked Keith how much trouble she might be in, and he broke the news to her: «quite a bit.» We’ll vouch for you, Kristen. Don’t worry.
