No Witches for JHud
Jennifer and her 13-year-old son Little David are throwing a bash on Halloween!
This year, JHud is relying on the teenager to organize plans for the party and to pick her costume.
Jenn and David are going to do several adventurous activities including Whirlyball, which is a mix of lacrosse, hockey, and basketball using bumper cars.
The family will also go bowling, which Jenn said she is good at it even with her long nails.
Finally, they will play laser tag, where Jenn plans to scare Little David and his friends.
“Maybe a little ghosts or something. Or when they go running around, maybe Michael Myers,” she told her audience, referencing the killer in the “Halloween” franchise.
JHud and her family aren’t going overboard with decorations at home in case “some kids don’t like scary stuff.”
“Maybe a broom, but no witch,” Jenn explained.
Once Halloween is over, Jennifer will begin decorating her house with candles to mark the start of the holiday season.
However, Jenn won’t put up her Christmas tree until after Thanksgiving.

Trick or Treat for Chance the Rapper
Chance the Rapper and JHud discussed what it was like to celebrate Halloween in their hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
During an interview with the rapper, Jenn mentioned how growing up, she didn’t celebrate Halloween — but Hallelujah Night, in which she didn’t go trick-or-treating and dressed up as a Biblical character at church.
“It means you’re not getting candy. You pray,” Chance added.
Many kids in the area weren’t allowed to go trick-or-treating due to a concern that the candy was poisoned, according to Jennifer.
“There are a lot of scares as a kid,” Jenn recalled.
These days, Chance takes his children — daughters Kensli, 7, and Marli, 3 — trick-or-treating… until “I get tired.”
Some candy is better than no candy!

No Decorations for Kelly Rowland
Turns out, Kelly Rowland may have ruined Halloween for her sons, 7-year-old Titan and 1-year-old Noah!
While talking to JHud about her movie “The Curse of Bridge Hallow,” the former Destiny’s Child group member said the film has huge decorations that come to life.
“[There’s a] big ol’ spider on the top of a house,” she said.
Because of this, Kelly and her family aren’t doing Halloween decorations because the film “freaked [her children] out enough.”
However, like Jenn, Kelly will start decorating for the holidays after Halloween.
“But Christmas, I’m going all out,” Kelly noted. “The longer Christmas, the better.”
Jenna Dewan’s Glam Squad
This Halloween, Jenna Dewan will act as her daughter Everly’s “glam squad.”
She told Jenn that her nine-year-old — who she likes to call “my diva” — will go to four different events and will undergo four costume changes.
“She has a school party, [one at a] friend’s, [and will go] trick or treating,” the star of “The Rookie” said about her daughter’s various activities.
Of course, Everly can’t dress up as “something regular.” Jenna said her daughter insisted on wearing custom-made outfits that require “something random that I have to look on Etsy [for].”
“[One of her costumes is of a] character from a book that no one’s read,” she added.
Fortunately, the parties are on different days so the mother-daughter duo will have time for the costume changes.
Either way, Jenna is in charge of doing Everly’s hair and makeup.
“I’m hired!” she hilariously said in response.
Eddie Redmayne’s Likely to See Wizards
Eddie Redmayne — who is from London, England — said Halloween is “different” in the U.K.
“It’s an excuse for children to get dressed as a wizard or a witch,” the “Fantastic Beasts” star added. “In the States, you get dressed up for anything.”
However, the actor said the ghoulish holiday is “slowly coming to the U.K. more strongly.”
