Busy Philipps Helps Woman After Scooter Crash: 'It Only Furthers My Belief These Are Not Safe'
Busy Philipps helped bring a stranger to safety this weekend.
The 39-year-old actress was out for a walk with her husband Marc Silverstein on Sunday, when they noticed a woman who had just gotten into a scooter accident.
The pair quickly stepped in to assist her, with Philipps helping to carry her to the side of the road in West Hollywood, while Silverstein, 47, moved the scooter out of the street, before finding an urgent care that she could go to.
Philipps later opened up about the experience on her Instagram Stories and advocated against the electric scooters, which have become a popular choice of quick transportation around Los Angeles within the past year.
“Something kinda crazy did happen on our walk,” the Busy Tonight host began, before explaining: “We saw a woman who had gotten into a scooter accident and we went over and we tried to help her. And I helped her get out of the street and we helped them figure out what urgent care to go to.”
“And it only furthers my belief these scooters are not safe,” she continued.
While she is not a fan of scooters, Silverstein is a big indoor cycling enthusiast — something his wife of 12 years supports.
The pair recently celebrated to Silverstein’s 1000th SoulCycle class together.
“How much money is that, Marc?” Philipps asked on her Instagram Stories, before joking, “Do you own stock in SoulCycle?”
The couple was able to determine that the Silverstein’s milestone took five years to achieve, based on the timing of Philipps’ pregnancy with daughter Cricket Pearl, 5, aligning with her screenwriter husband’s cycling beginnings.
In addition, the class was a major event for the actress, as it was the first one she had attended in a year. “We’ll see how it goes for me today,” she admitted. “I am a little nervous, I have to say.”
Speaking to the publication, the actress revealed that Silverstein wasn’t initially the most supportive parent after welcoming their first daughter Birdie Leigh, now 10.
“He was not understanding how to be a dad and, in fact, didn’t try. I was parenting by myself,” Philipps told the magazine in November. “When I told him I wanted to have a second child, he said, ‘Fine, but it’s all on you.’ That was so heartbreaking.”

She continued, “Marriage is always hard, but especially when you have kids… You’re going to go through periods when you’re not into it, but there always has to be one person willing to fight.”
“I went to Marc several times and said, ‘I cannot do this anymore. Something has to change, and it’s you,'” she added.
Since their conversation, Philipps said the pair have worked through things and she has noticed in a difference in her husband’s fatherly behaviors.
“We’ve had a lot of serious discussions and counseling, and he’s incredibly participatory now in a way I don’t think he could’ve imagined before,” Philipps finished. “We’re a work in progress but trying our best, and that’s the most you can do.”
