Kristen Bell Defends Her Pool Gloves After Husband Dax Shepard Made Fun of Her on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”


If you follow Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard on social media, you know they’re always keeping things real— from parenting to marriage to mental health, they’re always willing to tell the truth, especially if it helps someone else in the process.

Back in June, Dax appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” where he discussed a photo he’d taken of Kristen in the pool wearing a pair of “pool gloves.”

“My bride wears gloves in the pool because she hates the feeling of pruney fingertips on skin,” he told Jimmy Kimmel. ““Weirder to me than her even having this proclivity is that someone is manufacturing pool gloves!”

Kristen Bell, who has no shame in her game, appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” a few weeks later where she was quick to defend her pool gloves, calling it a serious, yet-to-be-discovered medical condition. “To the other maybe 10 people out there who suffer, you’re not alone!,” she said before Jimmy showed her a mock commercial for a prescription for people suffering from  Pruney Fingerphobia. Oh, Jimmy.
