Shocking! Tina Fey’s Hairy Man Arms!

Tina Fey has written a book! (Exclamation point times 100.)

Behold: The Tina Fey Swimsuit Calendar

I think you know what you’re getting, oh, everyone you know for the holiday season—the 2011 Tina Fey Swimsuit Calendar. The way I phrased that makes it sound like there was such a calendar for 2010, but there wasn’t. This is a brand-new concept that Tina unveiled over the weekend at “Night of Too Many…

According to Tina Fey, Emmy losers have more fun. On “The Jimmy Fallon Show,” she recounted her wild, post-Emmy party night out with the other drunk moms, like Amy Poehler. The highlight of the night was when she yelled, “This is what it looks like when New York gets drunk!” to the paparazzi.

The “Cathy” Comic Strip Was “Sex & The City,” “Bridget Jones,” And “30 Rock” Before Their Time

By now you’ve probably read a news article with the lede: “Ack! The ‘Cathy’ comic strip is ending!” Yes, it’s true. Cartoonist Cathy Guisewite, 60, announced yesterday that she will retire the 34-year-old comic strip in October for the usual reasons: to spend more time with her family and pursue other creative projects.

Watch Tina Fey’s Nerdy 1995 Bank Commercial

Before Tina Fey was Tina Fey, she was just another badly dressed struggling comedienne in the ’90s with bills to pay, as this 1995 Mutual Savings Bank commercial proves.

Tina Fey And Meryl Team Up For A Flick, And David Cross Joins Keri Russell In “Running Wilde”

Every millisecond in Hollywood, movies and TV shows are pitched to networks and studios. Only a handful of them will ever actually being made, and even of those, very few will get me to the theater on opening night or to hit the “record series” button on my DVR. And yet today, I’ve heard about…

Quotable: Tina Fey Loves Her Carbs

“I thought about eating less bread [before the Emmys], and then I decided that I wasn’t going to do that. I think there should be some kind of jumpsuit, like an orange jumpsuit, that you can just wear that just signifies that I’m out. I’m not trying this year. I’m a non-combatant in fashion.”Tina

We Cast “Mean Girls 2″

If you don’t count “Mean Girls” as one of the best movies of the last decade, then you just weren’t paying enough attention. And now Paramount Famous Productions has given the go-ahead on “Mean Girls 2″ — just a mere six years later. Given the first movie’s superior Tina Fey-penned humor, it would be tragic…

Quotable: Rebecca Traister Stands Up For Tina Fey

“Feminist comedy cannot always take as its targets the Jesse Jameses and the Richard Nixons of the world.

Quotable: Tina Fey Has Amorous Feelings For A Doughnut

“The best doughnut? That’s Peter Pan doughnuts in Brooklyn. It’s a Polish bakery. We shot nearby once for ’30 Rock.’ It’s a white-cream-filled powdered doughnut.
