For many fans of pop culture, and this particular couple, the news seems to be especially devastating, even after almost a week.

Close friend and millionaire matchmaker Patti Stanger has offered a little ray of hope, saying the couple are still living under one roof meaning they could rekindle their love.
Despite being friends with the couple, Patti found out the news through the Scream star's Instagram post in which she confirmed the split, and said she was hesitant to reach out for fear of "bombarding" the stars.

She continued, "I want them to get back together". "I'm glad I spent my time with that person", she mused.

When asked how she will handle this kind of situation, Kristen Bell said separation is about accepting the reality no matter how much it hurts. The actress said that when people go their separate ways in a relationship, there are times when a different set of choices have to be made and even when those choices make a person sad, it is about sometimes having to "make hard choices in life".
She also underlined the importance of knowing each other's perspective and to listen to what the other half has to say.

"[It's] really hard", she said, adding that it takes "work". "So, I'm not fixing them up - I would just be the counsellor between them and go, 'What really is the issue here?' Because she's living in the house, so someone threw out the curveball, maybe the publicist, I don't know who ... you just don't really say something when they're [still] living in the house [together]". It's just that they don't want to leave each other.
Ultimately, it seems that Kristen Bell wants fans to remember that even though the couple might be separating, that does not mean that the good years did not happen.
