In celebrity news, Busy Philipps gets real about the challenges of marriage and family in the November issue of Parents magazine. The actress and host of E!’s Busy Tonight opened up about her 11-year marriage to producer husband Marc Silverstein and how he wasn’t the most supportive parent after the birth of their first child, Birdie Leigh, now 10. According to, Philipps recalled, “He was not understanding how to be a dad and, in fact, didn’t try. I was parenting by myself. When I told him, I wanted to have a second child, he said, ‘Fine, but it’s all on you.’ That was so heartbreaking.” She continued, “Marriage is always hard, but especially when you have kids…You’re going to go through periods when you’re not into it, but there always has to be one person willing to fight. I went to Marc several times and said, ‘I cannot do this anymore. Something has to change, and it’s you.’ The celebrity parents had a lot of serious discussions and counseling. Since the conversation, the couple has welcomed their second child Cricket Pearl, now 5. The celebrity parent says, “He’s incredibly participatory now in a way I don’t think he could’ve imagined before. We’re a work in progress but trying our best.”
