Samantha Bee: 'Working With My Husband Makes Us Better Parents'


Samantha Bee: 'Working With My Husband Makes Us Better Parents'
The Daily Show comedian says she and her husband Jason Jones are always "up in each others' grill."

Thankfully the married couple has a little space from each other at work, says Bee. They often work in different parts of the office or are off traveling in different parts of the country, so they rarely work on projects together. One of the few skits they've done as a pair is the gay marriage segment "Runaway Pride" we mentioned above, where they took to the streets of NYC together to talk to newlyweds about the day gay marriage became legal in the state of New York — all while ribbing each other about having been married for so long. "Look at him, he's like a f***ing seagull," she exclaims, watching Jones eat his hot dog. If that's not love, we don't know what is.

If you think her admirable relationship skills are the only reason we love Samantha Bee, there's even more! The 43-year-old is a campaigner for natural beauty, and helping women feel their best about their appearance. In fact, she's currently working with Dove to promote and the @Dove #truthtuesdays Twitter party, which help women find the best cleanser and body wash for their skin. Bee is really into gentle cleansers — "we're too concerned about peeling away layers of skin these days. Just buff it gently," she advises. Given her work with Dove, we just had to ask whether Jason ever steals her beauty products.

"I used to put skincare products in Jason's stocking every year for Christmas, but two years later, I would find those products unopened," Bee tells us. "I just stopped, because he just uses what I use." That would be a resounding no.
