Harris¬†captioned on Instagram,¬†“Happy Halloween from Gotham City!!” The family celebrated with their famous friends, power couple Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos.
What are some creative ways to celebrate Halloween as a family?
In this exclusive interview, CupidsPulse.com founder and executive editor Lori Bizzoco chats with Kelly Ripa about Super Saturday, which was held this past weekend in the Hamptons; her relationship with co-host and ‚Äúsoul sibling‚ÄĚ Michael Strahan; and her strong marriage to¬†Mark Consuelos. ‚ÄúWe just love each other. We still dig each other,‚ÄĚ the television personality says of the secret to their marriage of seventeen years. ‚ÄúHe does it for me, and I think I do it for him. Otherwise, I don‚Äôt think he‚Äôd still be here!‚ÄĚ
The mother of three also discusses her partnership with Electrolux and their French Door Refrigerator with the Perfect Temp Drawer. Not only does she love their products, but she loves their philanthropic attitude as well. ‚ÄúThey‚Äôve been helping me raise money for ovarian research since I‚Äôve been with them. When a company puts forth such an effort not only to make lives easier but also worrying about the health of women, I just think that says something.‚ÄĚ
In addition to the event in New York City, Electrolux is inviting Americans to visit¬†www.livelovelux.com¬†through¬†August 22 to enter the Electrolux Perfect Temp Sweepstakes for the chance to win a French Door Refrigerator and a trip to a climate with the Perfect Temp (the Bahamas!). For every entry or share, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). Visitors to the site can also download Kelly‚Äôs favorite summertime recipes, including her famous spicy mango-peach Greek yogurt popsicle!

Everyone has heard the saying that ‚Äúrelationships are hard work.‚ÄĚ ¬†But it seems that in Hollywood, relationships are even harder work, and celebrity news is always full of star couples calling it quits. ¬†We‚Äôre only a few months into 2012, and this year we‚Äôve already heard of Russell Brand and Katy Perry‘s divorce, the conclusion of Drew Carey’s five-year engagement to Nicole Jaracz, and the shocking end to Heidi Klum and Seal’s seven-year marriage.
We are always looking to celebrities for the latest trends in clothing, music, and movies. ¬†But with these couples frequently dissolving in divorce and disputes, are there any famous couples we can look to for inspiration in the love, romance, and marriage department? ¬†Cupid checked it out, and here are three couples who have been lucky in love, despite the constant glare of the spotlight:
What‚Äôs the first thing you think of when someone says Sin City?¬† Ok, after legalized prostitution. That‚Äôs right ‚ÄĒ quickie Vegas weddings in chapels illuminated with neon lights.¬† The fact is, Las Vegas issues approximately 100,000 marriage licenses each year and boasts almost as many wedding chapels as it does casinos. ¬†For celebrity couples, those quickie weddings are typically followed by quickie divorces and embarrassing publicity.¬† Vegas‚Äô abundance of 24-hour bars makes us wonder if some of our favorite celebs were under the influence of something other than love when they tied the knot, Vegas-style.¬† Here are a few examples:
Hollywood is boasting a bevy of babies. ¬†Jennifer Garner and Kelly Ripa are known for focusing on their families, while maintaining busy careers. ¬†Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, are rapturously cradling a new baby boy. ¬†Not only that, but Angelina Jolie is rumored to be pregnant again. How do these celebrities manage to keep their romantic relationships strong with the many demands of having a career and children?
Drs. Charles D. Schmidt and Elizabeth A. Schmidt conducted a 25-year study of couples who had been happily married for 30 years or more to find out what makes love last.¬†¬†They found seven secrets to building a happy and successful marriage. ¬†That‚Äôs not easy to do with a carful of kiddos‚Äďbut as these celebrity moms and dads show, it can indeed be done. ¬†Here’s how:

Nearly three months after filing for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kim Kardashian appeared alongside Kelly Ripa on Monday morning to co-host¬†LIVE! With Kelly. ¬†She¬†used the¬†opportunity¬†to¬†speak out against the rumors that are stating her marriage to NBA player, Kris Humphries, was a business deal. ¬†“Being a hopeless romantic, I wanted to believe in something so badly,” Kardashian said. ¬†“If you really think about it, if [the marriage] was a business decision, and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV ‚Ä¶ I’m a smart business woman. ¬†I would have stayed married longer,” she explained to Ripa. ¬†“I really didn’t think following my heart would create this much backlash.”
How do you fend off rumors about your relationship after a breakup?
