“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?
“It was a real honor that in my sitcom debut I got to meet someone like Leslie Knope, who believes so deeply in public service. She’s an example for men and women across the country that there’s no higher calling than helping other people. On a personal note, I’ll never figure out how Leslie Knope got my home phone number, but that really just shows how committed she is.”
–Vice President Joe Biden expresses his delight about making a cameo on “Parks and Recreation” alongside Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope, who has an infamous crush on him. As Leslie explained last season, “Joe Biden is on my celebrity sex list–well, he is my celebrity sex list.” Excited to see the pair’s sexual chemistry in action? Biden’s episode airs November 15th.

I love that Archie Arnett went all out with his Batman costume, but my beloved big serious baby Abel is kind of just dressed in his usual half-assed fireman getup. I am pretty sure Abel and I have the same approach to Halloween, which is to wear our usual clothes with a Halloween accessory or two. We’re too busy doing other things, like being awesome, to get too worked up about the holiday. See a few more pics after the jump! Keep reading »
Come on, who among us hasn’t at one point or other uttered the words, “I really wish I could be best friends with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler”? They’re obviously so funny and smart and cool! During Sunday night’s “Night of Too Many Stars” telethon for autism research (hosted by other BFF candidate Jon Stewart), two lucky women bid on and won the opportunity to be best friends with Fey and Poehler for the night. Grace Ann and Karen paid $30,000 to hang out with the celebs all night, taking a bunch of funny photos (another guy paid even more than that to pee next to Seth Rogan in the men’s room — whhhhhaaat!?). Anyways, it looks like Poehler and Fey really lived up to the womens’ expectations.
I have a confession to make: I am totally, 100 percent, head-over-heels in love with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I even have fantasy scenarios to prove it. As is fitting for these lovely ladies, the images in my head are funny, a bit off-kilter and leave me feeling good about myself (i.e. if you’re looking for something a little more, um, stimulating, you’ve come to the wrong place.)
In my imaginary world, I’m presenting at an important meeting for a woman’s organization, surrounded by people who have made a big difference in community, business, and the world at large. (Okay, so it’s a bit of a stretch, but a girl can dream, right?) Suddenly, murmuring spreads across the audience, and I pause in confusion. Behind me, a self-deprecating voice that I’d recognize anywhere says something like, “These are all great points. Mind if we butt in?” Read more…
Hallelujah praise the lord! Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been tapped to co-host the Golden Globes! We were so excited to hear this news that we couldn’t help but ponder all the other things we’d love to have them cohost, from reality shows to awkward family gatherings. Read on to check out our Tina/Amy hosting wishlist, and please add your own in the comments… Keep reading »
Amy Poehler’s “Ask Amy” advice series is never not amazing and this week’s segment on how to deal with your parents is no different. Even though “Ask Amy” is for teenaged girls, Poehler’s super-smart advice works for daughters of any age … including those of us in the “why aren’t you married and giving me grandchildren?” years. She seems like an awesome human being and an awesome mom. I can’t be the only one who wants her to adopt me, right? [YouTube]
Who knew that April Ludgate, Leslie Knope, and Ann Perkins were so damn stylish? The “Parks and Recreation” trifecta cleaned up ever-so-nicely for an event hosted by Glamour, and I barely recognized the Pawnee politicians out of their buttoned-up office attire. Do you think they carpooled? I hope they carpooled. I want to be invited to that carpool.
“There’s a lot of things people don’t know about Adam. He loves taking off his pants. Just takes them down all the time. Literally, he cannot keep his pants on. Like, we’ll be doing a scene and we’ll look down and Adam won’t have any pants on, and we’ll be like, ‘Adam! We’re in Senator Boxer’s office! Put your pants back on!’ And he’s like, ‘Oh.’”
–Amy Poehler, on her “Parks and Recreation” co-star Adam Scott. So that’s what’s going on behind the scenes, eh? [NYMag.com]
