These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous “insiders.” After a while, it’s easy to forget that stars are real people. That’s why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they’ve shared their guiltiest pleasures?
2012 was a good year to be a Jonas. Nick Jonas landed a gig in the smash Broadway musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” Joe Jonas released his first-ever solo album in October, and the hit reality TV show “Married To Jonas,” starring Kevin Jonas and his wife, Danielle Deleasa, has been renewed for a second season. It is no secret that this kind of success comes with its fair share of pressures. So when we had the opportunity to catch up with the incredibly down-to-earth couple behind the hit E! reality TV show at the Cold-EEZE & City Harvest food drive to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims, we figured, what better opportunity exists to put some of these rumors to rest?
What is the most ridiculous rumor you’ve ever heard about yourself?
Kevin Jonas: Well, she hears that she’s pregnant, like, every day. I mean, it will happen, but not today!
Danielle Deleasa: I think that’s the major one that everyone pinpoints on me.
KJ: But that’s OK, they’re all just excited.
If you could give advice to a younger version of yourself what would it be?
KJ: Happy wife, happy life.
Any New Year’s resolutions this year?
DD: We asked each other that the other day too, but we never came up with one!
KJ: I think it’s always the simple ones like “get in shape.” I’m going back on the road, so being able to handle playing for two and half hours onstage takes a lot out of you.
DD: Wait, I know there’s a good one, I just have to think!
KJ: Oh, she said to learn a new recipe each week. It’s actually a really smart one, because if you do that once a week, it’s 50-something recipes.
How many times a day do you brush your teeth and floss?
KJ: At least twice.
Do you ever cheat at board games?
DD: Tell the truth, Kevin!
KJ: I might, once in a while, to try to beat her. But she kicks my butt in Scrabble and I hate it! I’m a huge Monopoly fan, too.
DD: He’s competitive.
