Few celebrity couples have more openly discussed their ups and downs as much as Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard (see: the entire two hours of the first episode of Shepard's “Armchair Expert” podcast). Still, it seems some people want to invent new problems in their marriage, such as the fact that Bell has admitted to smoking pot regularly even though Shepard is sober.
"I like my vape pen quite a bit,” Bell said on “WTF With Marc Maron” this week. “Weed rules. Weed is my drug of choice, for sure."
Upon hearing that, whoever runs The Talk's Twitter account asked readers on Wednesday, "If you were sober, would you expect your spouse to be?"

Shepard was having none of that health trolling.
"That would be like a diabetic expecting their partner to never eat dessert. Get real!" he tweeted.
It's not as if Bell is going on benders around her family — She told Maron that she (quite legally) tokes up when she watches 60 Minutes, because she is a raging party animal.
“He likes drugs and alcohol,” the Good Place actress said of her husband. “He’s just aware that he lost his privilege with them because he can’t handle it. His brain does not have the chemistry to handle it.”
Far from being a taunting temptress of substance abuse, Bell has often demonstrated how supportive she is of her husband's disease. She honored Shepard’s 14 years of sobriety earlier this month with a heartfelt note on Instagram and a sobriety birthday trip to the King's Hawaiian factory, where Shepard stuffed himself with carbs.
