In celebrity news, Lauren Scruggs, Jason Kennedy’s wife, is standing by her man! After her hubby’s co-star, Catt Saddler, quit working for E! due to a pay disparity, Kennedy received criticism on social media, according to Scruggs was there to support her hubby though. This celebrity couple stands strong together — and Scruggs had something to say via Instagram on Dec 21 to defend her man and E!. She wrote, “I believe in female empowerment and gender equality, but it’s heartbreaking that a network is being deemed sexist when that is simply not true. At one time my husband had a female co-anchor [Giuliana Rancic] on E! News who made 3 times his salary. Women are paid accordingly on this network, and the difference in his salary versus hers did not affect Jason. He knows there are always more components to consider when determining one’s salary than gender alone… Since Jason was named the permanent anchor of E! News over two years ago, he has had various co-hosts that rotate throughout the week. A permanent co-host has never been named since the last one left 6 months ago.”

This celebrity news shows that couples stick together in the good times and bad. What are some ways to support your partner through a controversial time?

3. Create a judgment free zone: It’s okay to give advice, but try not to sound like Judge Judy! Judging can only push people away, not bring them in. Keep an open mind.
