Tina Fey Sticks Up For Olivia Munn & Answers The Question, “Is Liz Lemon Ugly?”

GQ: Lady blogs like Jezebel exploded after the episode with the Liz-hires-a-feminist-comic thing. It sure seemed like you were commenting on the outrage when Olivia Munn — hot lady, not necessarily hot comic — was hired on “The Daily Show.”

Tina Fey: I was actually really pleased that Jezebel got that it was about the whole Olivia thing, because the treatment of Olivia was weird on that site. She just kept getting reamed! And it was this weird mix. They would go after her, and then the next thing would be like, “Defending the Rights of Sex Workers.” And I was just like, “Well, why can’t we just say Olivia’s a sex worker? Leave her alone!”

— Tina Fey in GQ talking about the “30 Rock” episode “Joan Of Snark,” which addressed the way ladyblogs like Jezebel (and, to be fair, The Frisky) have criticized “The Daily Show”‘s Olivia Munn. Some would say Olivia leads with the “hot piece of ass” angle, but not Tina Fey.

After the jump, Tina gamely answered GQ‘s question, “Is Liz Lemon ugly?” Keep reading »

LeAnn Rimes Was Never Taught Not To Cheat

“I didn’t have the tools to know how to do it the right way, how to let go the right way. I’d never been taught that … I have the strength [now] but I didn’t at the time… So, it got really messy, but I have learned a lot from that. And I’m not glad it happened, but I know why it did.”

LeAnn Rimes on why she cheated on husband Dean Sheremet with Eddie Cibrian. This statement annoys me. None of us were taught the right way to let go. There is no course in school that gives you the tools. You grow a pair of balls and own up to the truth because you have to, because it’s the right thing to do, not because you’re taught to. That is all. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Please, No: “Real Housewives” Husband, Simon Van Kempen, Sings “I Am Real”


Is this really happening again? Is another “Real Housewives” star trying to turn their 15 minutes of reality TV fame into a music career? Actually, no. A “Real Housewives”‘ star’s husband is following in the footsteps of Countess LuAnn, Kim Zolciak, and Danielle Staub. Alex McCord‘s hubby, Simon Van Kempen — both from “The Real Housewives of NYC” — has released his first song, “I Am Real.” It is just as Eurotrash as you’d expect from the banana hammock-wearing Aussie. Simon told PopEater that his style is similar to Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, and while I appreciate the reference — love Jarvis — I politely disagree. (Though I do think it establishes him as more of a gay icon than Sonja.) But what do you think? [PopEater] Keep reading »

  • Emma Watson reportedly abandoned her Ivy League dreams because fellow students at Brown University were a**holes to her.

[New York Daily News]
