Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard's Low-Key Wedding: Courthouse I-Dos, Then Sandwiches

Originally posted 11/22/2013 11:30AM

No Hollywood wedding planner. No big dress. Just a couple of kids on a Thursday morning at the courthouse, with an impromptu officiant sealing the deal.

That's how Kristen Bell described her October wedding to husband Dax Shepard, which went off happily and without the usual celebrity pomp and flourish.

"We wanted the lowest-key day possible," Bell, 33, told Jay Leno on Thursday of her quiet nuptials. The couple had dated since 2007 and became engaged in 2010.

Originally posted 10/31/2013 08:00AM

Kim Kardashian's instantly notorious swimsuit selfie, posted to Instagram this month, was a rebuke to everyone who made fun of her weight during her pregnancy, she revealed Wednesday on The Tonight Show.

"I was trying on a bathing suit, and I actually just sent that to my boyfriend, my fiancé, and I was like, 'Babe, can I post this up? This is my big, like, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat,' " Kardashian, 33, told Jay Leno.

The criticism of her weight was excruciating, she adds, and drove her to seek happiness out of the spotlight for a while.

Jay Leno, 62, is retiring from his 22-year job hosting NBC's Tonight Show, the network officially announced Wednesday.

And the late-night war of words continues!

Following the back and forth bashing between Jimmy Kimmel, 45, and Jay Leno, 62, in 2010, Kimmel is at it again, now telling Playboy in its March issue (on newsstands Friday), "I always feel bad if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn't seem to be that worried about other people's feelings."

Kimmel, who three years ago called Leno a "tattle-tale" for talking about him to Oprah Winfrey, goes on to say, "Strangely, I don't even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I'm asked."
