Rachel Dratch, Martha Plimpton & Other Rad People Read Judy Blume’s Deenie

Growing up, my favorite Judy Blume book was Deenie, because the title character had scoliosis. My dad had scoliosis as a kid and was in a torso cast for two years, and was deeply worried that my brother or I would inherit his spinal problems. Reading Deenie helped me understand why. (For the record, I have never developed scoliosis, though I do have spina bifida occulta, which gives me pretty minor lower back pain.) But Deenie also helped me understand others things, like how to masturbate! The book did the same for countless other teenagers, including Rachel Dratch, Martha Plimpton and Elna Baker, who were joined by writers Junot Diaz, Amy Sohn and Elna Baker for an onstage reading of Deenie at an event for the National Coalition Against Censorship. (Deenie is one of the many Blume books that have been censored across the country.) Check out their reading of a critical scene from the book above! [HyperVocal[Photo: Flickr]

Julia! Julia!

Julia Roberts is America’s Sweetheart. But did you also know that she’s an obstacle course? Billy Eichner, host of “Billy on the Street,” somehow convinced “Saturday Night Live” alum Rachel Dratch to take on the course, which involved creative recreations of all of Julia’s most-loved movies. There’s a burrito for “The Mexican,” a sewer pipe for “Erin Brockovich,” and even a giant pile of poop to represent the movie “Valentine’s Day.” Can Rachel make it through the course in time to collect her big prize (whatever that is)? Watch and find out. [Youtube]

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler & Rachel Dratch Reunite At The “Jersey Shore”

Last night on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” Tina Fey and Amy Poehler joined Jimmy in a “Jersey Shore” spoof. Both of the ladies looked pretty hot with their mega-extensions and bustiers as they rolled into a club and started dancing with the guys. Tina’s opening line? “I wanna make babies wit’ you.” But the best was when Rachel Dratch, aka “Drootchie,” appeared and they had a threeway girlfight. Sure, maybe the spoof is a little late to the party, but I still loved it. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Rachel Dratch Met Her Baby Daddy At A Bar

Rachel Dratch had been keeping the identity of her baby daddy on the DL. But she is finally revealing who’s the father of three-month-old Eli Benjamin. Drumroll please … Actually, it’s no one we’ve ever heard of. He’s a random dude named John Wahl. Don’t get out of your chair. The part I’m obsessed with is their love story. Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” To Air Second “Women Of SNL” On November 1

After a successful ladyflower extravaganza hosted by Betty White last spring, on Monday, November 1, “Saturday Night Live” will air yet another ode to the vag. The “Women of SNL” special will blend both new and old, mixing classic clips with new material from Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and others. Yay … I think? I would watch two hours of these ladies clipping their toenails. (Call me, Tina.) But at some point, “SNL” should not need these specials. The show should just have lots of funny women comics and writers all the time. Hire a funny black lady so damn Kenan Thompson doesn’t keep having to wear a dress and lipstick, you hear?

Quotable: Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch Explain Men Who’ve Got “Gray Balls”

Amy Poehler: Can I ask you how you feel about this term “cougar”? I hate that f***ing word.

Rachel Dratch: Me, too! Since the dawn of moving-making, there have been so many scenarios where an older guy is with a younger woman and we don’t bat an eye. But if it’s reversed and a 40-year-old woman is with a 35-year-old guy, she’s called a “cougar.”

Poehler: I know … there are these derogatory boxes that people have invented that they have to put themselves in. And why isn’t there a word for the inappropriate older guy with the younger girl? What is the exact word for that?

Dratch: I don’t know … Gray Balls?

Poehler: Old Gray Balls! Oh he’s a real Gray Balls! (laugh) Maybe we should make it Clark Gray-Balls. There is just something about a 20-year-old calling someone a cougar that makes me want to punch them in the mouth.

Vanity Fair Is The Real Debbie Downer

One of our favorite Saturday Night Live characters ever was Debbie Downer, played beautifully by Rachel Dratch. New York asked her how she felt about being left out of Vanity Fair‘s “Women in Comedy” story and she replied, “Dude, that was a dark day. I was like, ‘Oh, there’s everyone I worked with.’” Honestly, we didn’t realize Rachel was left out at the time (we were too busy being excited that Amy Sedaris was included!), but now we’re pissed. Is Jezebel right in pointing out that Vanity Fair only considers you funny enough for a feature if you’re traditionally pretty too? Now that is a downer. [New York] Keep reading »
