If you think most pregnancy announcements sounds alike, then you're not alone. Busy Philipps said she was tired of reading celebrities' prepared statements about being pregnant — and how "overjoyed" they are — so she decided to share her latest pregnancy news in as matter-of-fact and casual a way as possible. She sat down with Anderson Cooper to discuss the photo of her pregnancy test that she Tweeted out to fans. Hear what she had to say about breaking the news.
The Art of Elysium organization hosted their annual Heaven gala Saturday evening in downtown LA. They closed down a traffic tunnel in the city to play host to many of their famous supporters, including honoree David Arquette and many other longtime supporters like Elijah Wood, Busy Philipps, and John Legend. There were plenty of couples who celebrated together the night before the Golden Globes — Ali Larter arrived with husband Hayes MacArthur, John Legend walked with fiancée Chrissy Teigen, Krysten Ritter posed with Brian Geraghty, and Revenge's Ashley Madekwe brought husband Iddo Goldberg. Joe Manganiello, however, was solo posing for photographers.
There was a fashion parade on the gray carpet, too. Kirsten Dunst wore Louis Vuitton and said hello to friends like Jaime King. Rachel Bilson picked a long-sleeved Valentino, and Stacy Keibler donned Carolina Herrera. Another woman who picked a sleeved gown was Julianne Hough, who wore Jenny Packham and spoke about her plans to hit the red carpet at the Globes tomorrow. Her boyfriend Ryan Seacrest will be there as a host, but Julianne revealed she usually preps for award shows with a group of girlfriends and the Ellie Goulding Pandora station on! Busy wore a sparkly LBD and opened up about the new season of Cougar Town, as well as her upcoming big 2013 that'll include the birth of her second child. Busy told us she's obviously excited to be a mom again, but is almost equally excited about Kim and Kanye's baby!
Busy Philipps hit the gray carpet at Saturday's Art of Elysium Heaven Gala in LA. We caught a few minutes with Busy, who spoke about her excitement that her TV show Cougar Town is back on the air. The season debuted with a little help from Busy's best friend, Michelle Williams. Busy spoke about how they kept Michelle's cameo a secret, and also about her big 2013. Busy and her husband are expecting their second child, which will be only marginally more exciting than the arrival of Kim and Kanye's baby, she jokes.
Michelle Williams got to work with her best friend Busy Philipps when she made a cameo at the end of the season-four premiere of Cougar Town last night. The close pals have spoken frequenly about their desire to work together again — they met making Dawnson's Creek in the '90s — and finally got their wish. See Michelle take on the role of Busy's sister!
Busy Philipps isn't one to hold back when she's got something on her mind. Though she's less brash than Laurie, her character on Cougar Town, Busy is certainly not known for being shy (take her tweet showing off her positive pregnancy test last month as an example). As Cougar Town returns to the airwaves tonight, Busy appeared on Good Morning America to talk about her second pregnancy and teaching her daughter, Birdie, about having a positive body image and answer some fun questions about her personal traits and quirks.
Michelle Williams got in some bikini time with her pregnant friend Busy Philipps when they hit up Cancun, Mexico, with Jason Segel on Wednesday. Michelle wore a black two-piece but covered up with a denim shirt, a panama hat, and black Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Meanwhile, Busy — who costarred with Jason on Freaks and Geeks — soaked up some rays while wearing a red bikini. The friends reportedly landed in Cancun after Christmas and spent New Year's south of the border. Unfortunately for Busy, the trip wasn't as relaxing as it looked, since she suffered food poisoning during New Year's Eve. Busy tweeted, "Since the early hours of my 2013 were spent violently puking from food poisoning, there's no where to go but up." Illness aside, Busy was back to work today to promote the Tuesday premiere of Cougar Town at the TCAs in LA.
