How Could You Do A “Bridesmaids” Sequel Without Kristen Wiig?

If Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy (and Chris O’Dowd and Jon Hamm, yum) were to star in “Bridesmaids 2,” I would buy tickets tomorrow even if the movie hadn’t started filming yet. But Kim Masters from The Hollywood Reporter writes that even though Universal is planning a sequel to 2011’s blockbuster comedy, Wiig has confirmed she i…

“Bridesmaids” Suit Up, Named “Entertainers Of The Year”

I am loving the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring the cast of “Bridesmaids” in tuxedos. The six funny gals were named “Entertainers of the Year” by the magazine and I can’t help but agree. Based purely on the number of times the movie made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants, “Bridesmaids” get…

Kristen Wiig Named GQ’s “Bro Of The Year,” Is Actually Very Shy

“For a lot of comics, there’s a persona they’re not comfortable revealing unless they’re performing. Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands. But this is a woman who wore coconuts on her tits on SNL; she can go to the craziest, most grotesque places o…

Dear Wendy: “Being A Bridesmaid Is Breaking My Budget!”

A friend of mine from high school asked me in December to be one of her bridesmaids in her July wedding. I was surprised she asked me, particularly because while we were close in our teens, she was usually too busy with her now-fiance´ to catch up or respond to me when I was visiting…

The “Bridesmaids” Sex Tape Is All Kinds Of Wrong

Was there ever any doubt that Melissa McCarthy goes there and then goes 100 paces farther? Add the “Bridesmaids” sex tape as another piece evidence in the case for her complete fearlessness in the pursuit of being funny. The  “sex tape” between her character Megan and Air Marshall Jon is all kinds of wrong. Like,…

Are White Bridesmaid Dresses A Thing Now?

A few years back, one of my friends was having a hard time with the fact that her younger sister was getting married. She felt self-conscious about being dateless to the big event, and so anguished about buying a hot dress to wear. When she emailed me a photo of a dress she finally felt…

Infographic: What Your Bridesmaids’ Dress Color Says About You

Kim Kardashian is getting hitched this weekend, and her family isn’t telling us too much about how things we’ll be going down. Mom Kris Jenner tells us that Kim is cool as a cucumber.

Elizabeth Banks On The Over-The-Top Female Comedy She Wrote Before “Bridesmaids”

“The studio execs were like, ‘People don’t want to see girls [in the bathroom].’ And I was like, ‘I’m writing from experience! You go to a club and you have to wait in a huge line, so people double up. And, yes, you think you’re only going to take a little pee, but sometimes some…

Melissa McCarthy’s “Bridesmaids” Character Was Inspired By Guy Fieri

“I read the script and had such a weird, fast reaction to Megan. I knew exactly what I wanted her to look like, to sound like, and I got an intense feeling of ‘I like her so much! This will never work out!’ For the audition, I wore no makeup and a bad pant. Once…

What’s Up Next For Kristen Wiig?

It’s exciting to see that, in a post-“Bridesmaids” world, Kristen Wiig is starting to get major clout in Hollywood. For years, she has apparently wanted to do a movie called “Imogen,” and it has finally been picked up. Written by the husband and wife team behind “American Splendor,” Kristen describes “Imogen” as such: “It’s basically…

“Bridesmaids” Stars Kristen Wiig And Maya Rudolph Can’t Stop Talking About Farting On French TV

There is so much to love about about this French TV interview with “Bridesmaids”‘ stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. For starters, “Bridesmaids” is called a raunchy comedy, which apparently translates to “les comedies pee-pee, ca-ca coo” or something in French.

Should Female Friends Be Excluded From Bachelor Parties?

Straight off schooling Robert Pattinson in the art of telling a joke at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend, Reese Witherspoon has announced her newest project and it is, naturally, a comedy.

Chyna Phillips Wrote “Hold On” To Keep Herself From Becoming A Hollywood Statistic

“When I wrote ‘Hold On,’ I was 19 years old and was really at a crossroads in my life … I knew that if I didn’t make some really significant changes in my life, I’d end up being another Hollywood statistic. So those words – ‘hold on for one more day’ – were literally what…

Girl Talk: How Going To Vegas For A Bachelorette Party Made Me Question Everything

As I boarded the plane to Las Vegas, I vowed to keep the judgment to a minimum and the laughter to a maximum. I can endure anything for one weekend, I reasoned, taking comfort in the thought that there was no way my cousin’s bachelorette weekend could be as bad as the one in the…

By now you’ve probably heard — or seen for yourself — that “Bridesmaids” is totally hilarious and Melissa McCarthy, who plays tomboyish and frisky Megan, is clearly the breakout star of the film. On last night’s “Conan,” she revealed the celebrity inspiration for her character: None other than spiky-haired chef Guy Fieri. “Every scene…
