Kristen Bell: I Peed in a Jar While Wearing My Oscars Dress

When Jennifer Aniston told us last year that she picked her Oscars gown because it was “easy to pee in,” we thought she was being funny. Little did we know that being trapped in your Oscars dress, unable to properly use a toilet, is a real epidemic — but Kristen Bell set us straight on that account.

While discussing her corseted, mermaid-hem Roberto Cavalli gown on Live With Kelly and Michael, co-host Michael Strahan asked if the dress was comfortable to sit in. “Nope. And I didn’t realize that until I got into it,” she told him. “There was a situation … there was a Mason jar involved.” When the audience giggled, she laughed and said, “Like you guys haven’t peed into a Mason jar before in a huge ball gown!”

Tessanne’s support goes as high as Congress

 Yesterday, Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke, (New York’s 9th Congressional District) hosted a birthday party which she turned into a Tessanne tweet party.

During the post-birthday soiree and holiday cocktails at Woodland Restaurant, 242 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, there was a mixing and mingling of political elites, business leaders and young professionals of New York City, which also doubled as a fundraiser for the congresswoman’s 2014 re-election bid.

The congresswoman, who has followed Tessanne Chin’s rise in the competition, made the decision to make her event a “Voting Party”, for her fellow countrywoman.

“For weeks we have watched our darling Tessanne deliver one flawless performance after another on ‘The Voice’,” she said.

The congresswoman is asking all Jamaicans with a franchise to support Tessanne.

“We will be right there, all Jamaicans, wherever we are across the diaspora, to support her with our votes. [I], more than anyone, know that every vote counts,” she said.

“We will be celebrating on Tuesday night when the votes are counted!,” congresswoman Clarke said.

The congresswoman noted the diaspora’s support, which has reached fever-pitch proportions, especially in the Brooklyn diaspora enclaves, which also includes her congressional district.
