Today’s Lady News: Please, Tina Fey, Do Sarah Palin When You Host “SNL” In April!

  • Tina Fey is guest hosting “Saturday Night Live” in April, which probably means another Sarah Palin impersonation! “It’s inevitable that we’ll try it, at least,” Fey told the AP. “We’ll see if it makes it to air.” Now, if they could just get Amy Poehler back to do Hillary Clinton. [AP]
  • Happy 88th birthday, Helen Gurley Brown, the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan! Brown is also the author of the bestselling book Sex and the Single Girl, an essential piece of literature in the ’60s and ’70s sexual revolution. [Wikipedia]
  • London’s Globe Theater has commissioned its first play written by a woman, “Bedlam” by Nell Leyshon. The Globe, where William Shakespeare staged his plays, was closed from 1642 until 1997. Not until now has a female playwright had her work performed there.

Rompers And More: Behind The Scenes At Tina Fey’s Vogue Shoot


How can anyone not love Tina Fey? She’s got the whole package: brains, beauty, talent, fame, fortune, an ability to remain sexy even while singing about ham. Just when you thought you couldn’t squeeze an ounce more of love into your heart, here comes this quick video of the comedic actress at her Vogue cover shoot. The statements in her interview might just influence the next direction of fashion: “Yeah, I’m almost 40 and I wore a romper today.” Power outfit? “Big shoulder pads, deep v-neck, hot pants, and roller skates.” No, but in all seriousness, Fey never fails to impress as you watch how professionally she poses for photographer Mario Testino, and how beautiful she looks in Prada.

Quotable: Does Tina Fey Wear Her Playboy Bunny Necklace Ironically?

“To talk about the impact of fashion is really interesting. I think so much of it is tied into feminism. I am a post-baby boomer who has been handed a sort of Spice Girls‘ version of feminism. We’re supposed to be wearing half-shirts and jumping around. And, you know, maybe that’s not panning out. But you can tell different generations of women by whether or not they wear that Hillary Clinton blue power suit or the reappropriated Playboy-symbol necklace worn ironically. I think women dress for other women to let them know what their deal is. Because if women were only dressing for men, there would be nothing but Victoria’s Secret. There would be no Dior.”

Tina Fey Glams Up For “Vogue”

Tina Fey cleans up real good for Vogue, though the J.Lo-cut of that dress really doesn’t look like “her.” Still, the cover line, “American Style Idol: Blake Lively” is the far more questionable choice on this cover. [Vogue] Keep reading »

A Sad Year For Ladies In TV

This year, the four major TV networks — ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX — picked up 69 new shows between them, and hardly any of them were created by women. A measly 13 percent go to the fairer sex, making this the “worst year for women in TV in a decade.” Writers rooms are notoriously toxic to women, what with the David Letterman-esque scandals and penis-party atmospheres. With statistics like this, we can expect more sitcoms of the “schlubby man with gorgeous wife is confused about life” variety.

It’s the TV renaissance! Patron Saint Tina Fey, we turn to you. Jane Espenson, we love everything you do. Help us in our time of trial, and bring the ladies back to the networks. [Felicia Day] Keep reading »

Tina Fey And Steve Carell Might Team Up For “Mail Order Groom”

Tina Fey and Steve Carell are co-producing “Mail Order Groom,” a flick about a desperate single woman who brings an Eastern European husband with her home to the States, The Hollywood Reporter reports. The script is based on an idea by Fey’s husband, Jeff Richmond, and written by a group of four men. But what we want to know is whether the prince and princess of NBC’s Thursday night lineup will be starring in it, too? I sure hope so—Steve Carell and Tina Fey are smart enough to understand the mail-order marriage business isn’t especially funny-ha-ha. The mail-order bride trade is a pretty nasty business—it oftentimes dupes young women who’re just looking to support themselves and their families. Sorry to be a wet blanket but that’s a real-life fact, you know? Unfortunately, THR called a Fey-Carell pairing “a dicey proposition” because they are both so busy with their TV shows and their comedy, “Date Night,” which comes out in the spring. Alas, the fate of “Mail Order Groom”—and whether it’s actually funny or just trés uncomfortable—will be one to watch. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Liz Lemon Vs. The High-Def Camera

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in some beer-drenched frat house full of peeps who don’t understand “30 Rock” is satire. In last night’s episode, Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) went for Lasig surgery—that’s an off-brand Lasik—and got her hair did in a ferocious new ‘do, all to look TV-ready for Jack’s new show, “Dealbreakers.” It backfired, of course, and that was even before the high-definition camera.

Quotable: Tina Fey Disses NBC, Praises Porn Star

“NBC is sadly the fourth-place network; actually, we’re in ninth place if you count the radio stations ahead of us right now. I really believe that if everyone in this room would watch NBC for one night then that would be a 40 percent [ratings] increase … They made a porn movie about Sarah Palin and the same actress, Lisa Ann, played me in the porn version of ’30 Rock.’ Weirdly, of the three of us, Lisa Ann knows the most about foreign policy.”

Tina Fey And The Oscars Would Have Been A Great Match

By now you’ve probably heard the news that Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will be co-hosting the Oscars on March 7, but have you heard who was considered for Baldwin’s role before he was? Apparently, the big guns were so impressed with the pairing of Steve Martin and Tina Fey as co-presenters earlier this year, they first approached Fey about hosting with Martin at the next ceremony. Oscar producer, Adam Shankman, tells EW.com:

“It was a really quick discussion and it was mostly about “do you think that could work?”‘ It wasn’t that she turned us down but her work schedule right in that time, she’s writing the last of her shows, and we realized then that it wouldn’t work. But they were so great on the show together (the Oscars last year) and he’d done “30 Rock.”

We’ve already told you about the “30 Rock” porn spoof, but now the for-realz TV show on NBC has hired a porn star to play Liz Lemon. Wait, Tina Fey is leaving the show?! Hardly. Mega-famous adult film actress Savanna Samson will play the porn version of Liz in tonight’s episode, titled “Into the Crevasse.” According to Ace Showbiz, “the synopsis from this week’s episode does not indicate clearly any storyline concerning a Porn Liz. It says that Tracy and Jenna both have reason to be angry with Liz and are determined to make her life miserable. Liz has to find a way to regain order over her life and the show.” Hmm, guess we’ll have to watch to find out! [Ace Showbiz] Keep reading »
