Did you guys catch “Parks and Recreation” last night? SPOILER ALERT (that was already ruined by the headline, sorry): Leslie and Ben got married! In true Leslie fashion, the wedding came together at the last minute in a whirlwind of excitement and expertly delegated tasks. Leslie asked her BFF Ann to make her a dress based on the “sensuality of Eleanor Roosevelt combined with the animal magnetism of Leslie Stahl.” An hour later, Ann delivered this fabulous lace and newspaper creation, featuring articles and memos from Leslie’s illustrious career. God, could this show get any cuter? Check out another pic after the jump! [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
Amy Poehler may be one of the funniest women ever — not to mention mom to my favorite big serious baby, Abel Arnett — but she also strikes me as one of the more sincere celebs in Hollywood. One of my favorite things about her Ask Amy video advice series is how genuine and thoughtful it is. She’s still funny, but giving the best possible advice she can comes first. In this episode, Amy responds to a girl who’s having hard time saying she’s apologizing to her mom. Amy stresses the impact of saying sorry not just on the recipient but on the apology-giver as well, and that, like anything, it takes practice.
Suck it, Tina Fey! Feck off, Lena Dunham! Amy Poehler is here to write the greatest book in all the land. HarperCollins is publishing a memoirish “illustrated, non-linear diary” promising “true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons.” Uh, hello? Amy Poehler’s entire life is a life lesson: be best friends with Tina Fey, make adorable ginger babies, work with Adam Scott. Her book deal terms haven’t been disclosed, but whatever her publishers paid Miss Amy, it’s not nearly half as much as its worth. We must sit on our hands until 2014 for this masterpiece. Start your countdown clocks now. [AP] [Photo: Splash News]
Last night’s Golden Globe Awards were, hands down, the funniest the show has ever been. I’m serious. I realize that’s a big statement to make, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought it and, frankly, were even a bit under used. And I never say that about award show hosts. But the show overall was filled with many, many awesome moments, from Adele’s win for best song, to Lena Dunham and “Girls” surprise wins, to Jodie Foster’s incredible kinda sorta coming out speech. Let’s review the best moments, in picture, GIF and video form… Keep reading »
Another election is four years away? Blerg. At least we’ve got plenty of time to convince Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to make the Poehler/Fey ticket actually happen. (Although, would it be great if they launched their campaign while hosting Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards?) Those bitches would get stuff done and wear sweatshirts and sensible shoes while doing it. Just think: instead of war we’d have “page offs” and we’d squeeze our mind grapes to solve real problems in America. Liberty, justice and Cheesy Blasters for all. Vote Poehler/Fey, 2016!

Awards shows are a dime a dozen, but we like the Golden Globes because all the nominees are drinking and eating while the show goes on, and are generally sloshed by the time they get on stage. That, plus Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are hosting this year’s awards, which means it’s going to be extra funny. Tina and Amy know how pat and stale these things can be, and they’ve created their own drinking game. We are a tad partial to ours, only because it’s a bit more specific — more like a scavenger hunt than a drinking game. Or like a scavenger hunt with your TV. And booze. (The Golden Globes air Sunday January 13 at 8ET/5PT on NBC. )
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler + Ballgowns and Chuck Taylors = Perfection.
The green-eyed monster: it’s nice to know that even super-successful, “Saturday Night Live”-starring, Golden Globes-hosting, Tina Fey-best-friending Amy Poehler has had to slay that one. Her advice on how not to let jealousy make you a bitter person might proves Amy might be most rational person in Hollywood!
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey still haven’t gotten back to us about our suggestion that they co-host our bad dates and therapy sessions. They were probably just busy filming this promo for the 2013 Golden Globes, which they are co-hosting on Sunday, January 13. And here are the 2013 Golden Globe nominations in case you want to join the ranks of people on the Internet who are very angry about who got snubbed this year. [No "Game of Thrones" or "The Walking Dead"?! And who the hell even saw "Salmon Fishing in Yemen"?! I mean come on. -- Editor]
“Ask Amy” is back! This time, Amy Poehler is stopping a pint-sized people pleaser in her tracks. “Maybe you can stop trying, turn that energy back on yourself, and you become more attractive when you love yourself. You attract the right things when you have a sense of who you are,” Amy advises. “I know it’s tough at 15 to have that. It’s tough at 41 to have that! But I think that may be the way in: to stop trying and let go.” Amy seems a little choked up this time. Is it just me or do you imagine she might be calling upon her split from Will Arnett in this one?
