Tina Fey has cut her staff down from 200 to just 5 and has since moved from Long Island to Manhattan. While a move to the big city sounds good on paper, it really isn’t when one of your first experiences is having your jokes stolen by movers. Physically.
She explained to Letterman that she believes one of the movers went back up while she was signing papers and stole a laptop with all her unfinished jokes. She even played the security footage with the perp’s face blurred out. Read more at The Blemish…
Justin Bieber isn’t the only celebrity who just lost it on a paparazzo: Tina Fey just told a photographer to stick it where the sun don’t shine. Gasp! Tina! We didn’t know you knew that language! Some obnoxious paparazzo was following Fey on the street in New York City and asked her, again, about Taylor Swift’s recent quote in Vanity Fair magazine indicating she’s upset about the joke that Fey and Amy Poehler made at the Golden Globes. Tina Fey already responded about it earlier this week, and then responded again, but this paparazzo kept pushing it. And I guess Tina Fey took a page from The Alec Baldwin Book Of Actorly Surliness and had enough. “Go fuck yourself! Get a job, dude,” she was caught on video saying. She then chats with a fan and tells him, “Go fuck yourself” once again. It all got caught on video, which has since been taken down from E! News. Werk, publicists! Aww. Poor Tina. To be fair, there is a mess of snow out there and everyone’s a little bit cranky. [Huffington Post] [Image: Splash News]
Once upon a time at the Golden Globes, hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a little joke at Taylor Swift’s expense. It wasn’t even an especially mean joke, really, but it still poked fun at Swift’s reputation for getting around. “You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” they said, as the camera panned to Swift’s that’s-not-funny face. Fox himself even weighed in on it. (He later apologized.) There were rumors that Taylor Swift was upset about all the negative attention — who wouldn’t be? — and it turns out she took comfort in an unlikely place: the wisdom of Katie Couric.
In her new Vanity Fair profile, Swift was asked about how she deals with “mean girls,” which everyone is assuming is a reference to Fey and Poehler (but not Katy Perry, who has behaved like a snot towards Swift as well, if blind item gossip is to be believed). “Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Swift told the magazine. “Because she said to me she a heard a quote that she loved that said ‘There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’ (Which is actually a quote from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.)
Cue 6,000 headlines screaming that Taylor Swift has told Tina Fey and Amy Poehler that they’re going to hell.

“For seven years I would literally pull something off the floor because it was 6 o’clock in the morning, go to work, put on my wardrobe until the end of the day, put on what were basically pajamas and then go home. I don’t actually know what I like to wear in real life. It’s going to be a period of terribly awkward experimentation. Like middle school all over again. Perhaps I’m a person who wears a blouse with an ascot? Dark green nails? I think it’s going to be a series of caftans.”
– Tina Fey could totally make caftans a thing. Maybe she’ll bring back the fanny pack? I believe in her. [Time] [Photo: Paola Kudacki for TIME Style & Design]
As the final episode of “30 Rock” quickly approaches, the cast and crew have been releasing some special behind-the-scenes clips, and this one, in which Tina Fey shows us around Liz Lemon’s office, has to be my favorite so far. The best part? The framed Bust cover featuring Fey’s real-life BFF Amy Poehler that’s hanging on the wall of Liz Lemon’s office (mindfuck, right?). “This makes the world collapse a little bit,” Fey explains. “I just really like that picture of her, so I put it up, even though if that’s Amy Poehler, then who am I?” [NBC]
