We Love Kristen Bell’s Comments on De-Stigmatizing Mental Health Treatment for Moms

The Good Place‘s Kristen Bell was on The Real daytime panel show this week and we love what she said about the importance of treating anxiety and depression with any other disease or condition that has less stigma.

While visiting the ladies which include our bumpwatch alum Tamera Mowry-Housley and our other alum as a guest panelist, Melanie Brown, Bell shared her feelings about feeling inadequate about being a parent.

Actually, the Veronica Mars alum speaks often about destimatizing mental health problems by sharing her own experiences.

“I talk to someone and we have a check in once a year,” Bell opened up. “I take a pill if I need to. I make sure to exercise. I basically know my issue.”

Perhaps to counter the shame that is associated with seeing a therapist and taking psychosomatic drugs, Bell said, “It’s like for me, knowing if you have Diabetes. You wouldn’t deny a diabetic medicine.”

She also expressed what I think is beautiful about her union with hubby Dax Shepard who is a super supportive husband.

“If I have spent four days on the couch, my husband goes, ‘hey you want to go for a hike or do you want to go out with your girlfriend?,'” Bell shared,  before adding, “You have to stay aware and take care of yourself.”

Kristen Bell and bump featured in Samsung commercial w/husband Dax Shepard

Veronica Mars’ Kristen Bell and her husband Parenthood‘s Dax Shepard are super adorable in the new Samsung commercial about the Holidays.  The long spot features Bell’s baby bump prominently as the couple are expecting their second child shortly. They welcomed daughter Lincoln last March 2013. 
In the commercial, Shepard makes runs to get foods to satisfy Bell’s cravings, and seemingly seems unhelpful in helping her pick the choice of cute maternity looks. Bell summed it up in her tweet presenting the commercial calling it what life is like in the Bell/Shepard household, the Daily Mail noted. Funny!
Check out a few stills and the commercial below!

How come Kristen Bell is enjoying a Paparazzi-free 2nd pregnancy



Second time mom-to-be Kristen Bell reports that since she launched her “No Kids” Policy earlier this year, she has been having a paparazzi-free pregnancy this round. 
Bell and her husband Parenthood‘s Dax Shepard got their celebrity friends involved to agree to not do interviews with tabloid and news outlets that publish photos of celebrity children taken without permission. It worked as several outlets stopped publishing the images. 
“The response has been so overwhelming that it’s really almost a moral stance that the consumer demanded their publications take,” Bell told the Associated Press in an interview. “We’re all consuming healthier media now.”
And the effect has tricked down to other celebrities who also report not being photographed as much when they are out with their children. 
“I feel a lot safer because I’m not followed at all now,” Bell said. “It makes me feel like we all rallied and did something — the good people that were on the side of responsible parenting and passionate about child welfare spoke up and made a difference, and that is a really invigorating feeling.”

Kristen Bell: A Hollywood Mom Who Knows the Power of Social Media

  

So far 2014 has been

quite the year for actress Kristen Bell, and we’re only three months in! In

addition to starring in her passion project, the newly released Veronica

Mars
film, she’s also become the face of an ever growing movement to

protect celebrity children from paparazzi. Oh, and she was also a voice actor

in this one movie you may have heard of last year, it’s called Frozen?
Since the birth of her

daughter, Lincoln, in March of 2013, she hasn’t slowed down in the slightest.

That same month she teamed up with writer Rob Thomas to help turn their former

television series Veronica Mars into a film. The two of them were caught in negotiations with

Warner Brothers —who owned the rights to the franchise but didn’t want to put

up cash to make the film— when they decided to start a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise the funds instead. They were

the first group ever to launch a crowdfunding campaign for a film that was

already owned by a major studio, a risk that turned out to be worth taking

considering the campaign managed to raise more than its goal of $2 million in

the first day alone.
Kristen Bell has become

one of the most active and well liked celebrities on social media as well. In

fact, according to social media analysis tools Topsy and ViralHeat, at least 80% of the tweets mentioning the celeb have only positive

things to say. Kristen used this strong media presence while trying to raise

the funds for Veronica Mars, and is now redirecting that power

toward another cause close to her heart – that one of her child, and the

children of other celebrities.
Along with her husband,

Dax Shepard, and other celebrities (including Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner, who helped pass legislation in California protecting the children of celebrities last

year) she’s launched a campaign against the “pedorazzi”, as she calls them. Her

and Shepard argue that while they chose the become famous, their children did

not, and while being photographed by the paparazzi comes with the territory of

what the parents do, their children didn’t ask for it and don’t deserve it.

She’s a Mama Bear on a mission and it appears that nothing will stop her.

Her “No Kids Policy,”

which targets media outlets who publish paparazzi photographs of celebrity

children, has been wildly successful since its launch earlier this year. Major

media outlets such as People, Us Weekly,  Buzzfeed.com, Entertainment

Tonight
, and many other notable current events, news, and entertainment

outlets have all interviewed the star about her cause. She’s also been on a

media blitz, making live appearances to spread her message. She even appeared

alongside her husband on Access Hollywood to debate a few real-life

paparazzi regarding the issue. 
As for her acting work,

she’s currently starring in the critically acclaimed House of Lies on Showtime and reprised

her cameo role as the vapid and catty Ingrid de Forest on NBC’s Parks and

Recreation
earlier this year. 
Kristen Bell as Jeannie Van Der Hooven  in House of Lies
She’s also rumored to have a role in the recently greenlighted, online spin-off

of Veronica Mars for The CW’s website. If the rest of the year is going

to be like the first few months of it has been for her, 2014 is going to be one

heck of a year for Kristen Bell.

Olivia Wilde, Ali Larter support Kristen Bell’s anti-paparazzi social media campaign

Last year, Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry took on the paparazzi and successfully lobbied and got a law passed that put harsher restrictions on photographers who take pics of celebrity children.
Since then, actress Kristen Bell and hubby Dax Shepard have joined the fight and are using social media and the hashtag #pedorazzi to encourage the news magazines and media outlets that purchase paparazzi photos to stop doing that. The two went on TODAY recently.

The hope is that if the market dries up, the photogs will quit snapping the kids. 
It looks like current mom-to-be Olivia Wilde and past Bellyitch Bumpwatch mom Ali Larter are supporting the Shephards’ effort by retweeting Bell.

The Kardashians also put some work trying to get their millions of followers to support efforts challenging paparazzi target of celeb kids.

Good Luck!
