Comedy Queen

Bell fronts an ensemble cast including Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver and Betty White as a woman reunited with her high school nemesis (Odette Yustman) after she gets engaged to her brother. "It's not a bunch of women moping about how they're not married yet," she tells the L.A. Times of the mean girls-esque comedy. "And that's rarely done."

Hey Baby!

The House of Lies actress and fiancé Dax Shepard announce they are expecting their first child in late spring. "They can't wait to become parents," a friend of the couple tells PEOPLE. Engaged for nearly three years, the couple had previously said they won't tie the knot until same-sex marriage is legal in their home state of California, and that having children before marriage "doesn't bother us."
