Remember that time when Christopher Hitchens wrote that whole ridiculous thing about how women aren’t funny? Yeah, I forgot about that too since I’ve been too busy laughing along with all the funny ladies who are staking their claim on the comedy scene.
From Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who get us lizzing every Thursday night to Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and rest of the bridesmaids who made the prospect of getting food poisoning a lot more ... Read More

Just when I think I can't love Tina Fey any more than I already do, she up and goes and does something to make me love her even harder. In this case, she hosts a 2-hour NPR special called "The Hidden World of Girls." It is so good that I really wish she could have her own series, like a female Ira Glass. Unfortunately, I don't think NPR gives anyone their own show unless they have two things: a shween and a speech impediment. But enough about that.

Literally started LOLing when I saw this one! Tina Fey’s daughter, Alice is photographed mid-stride looking fly as hell. Tina, on the other hand, looks like she’s a little jealous of her daughter’s swagger or is pissed at the paparazzi for attempting to crush the hustler spirit. Now this photo has become it's own internet meme -- been edited and morphed into all different scenarios. My personal fav is Alice sporting a top hat and cane. I ... Read More

Today a very special box of books came into our office.
We’ve been waiting very patiently for Tina Fey’s new book, Bossypants, and man are we stoked and honored to be mentioned on its pages! I plan on reading the entire book immediately but so far, I’ve laughed out loud a few times at the random pages I’ve perused. A long time ago (2004), before Tina was the media mogul she is now, we put her on our cover, and we’ve always remembered ... Read More

The good news is Tina Fey was the youngest person and the third woman ever to receive the Mark Twain Prize for Humor last week, and great comedians like Steve Martin, Amy Poehler, Betty White, and Tracy Morgan had plenty of great things to say about her. The bad news is PBS is lame, and they cut a part of her acceptance speech where she talked about Sarah Palin and the politics of conservative women. The unedited speech leaked, however, and went viral, exposing ... Read More
Kind of. Here's the opening of last night's Emmy Awards featuring plenty of awesome people. And by awesome I mean not only Betty and Jon, I'm talkin' Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Jane Lynch, the Glee crew, Joel McHale, and even Kate Gosselin making fun of herself. Top that off with a little Bruce Springsteen action and you have a hilarious intro. Bon appetit!

Check out this fantastic vid of Tina Fey circa 1980something. Ain't she sweet? I wonder if Mutual Savings Bank tells people they helped give a famous star her start! Much thanks to Perez Hilton for posting this gem![image: ... Read More
Forbes Magazine has just released its annual list of “The 100 Most Powerful Celebrities” and it appears the past year was particularly good for Hollywood’s most talented and versatile ladies.
Raking in a ridiculous $315 million from her media empire, the one and only Oprah Winfrey kicked Angelina Jolie out of the No. 1 spot to reclaim her throne.
She’s followed by Beyonce at No. 2 who earned $87 million largely due to her ... Read More

Last night I spoke on a panel at the 92nd street Y. As a way to promote the event, I was asked by the organizers to write a piece for Flavorwire on who I thought were the ten most influential women in pop culture. Since we're on deadline here at BUST and I didn't have much time to devote to this, I whipped up a list of only 7, which they published yesterday, and which I am reposting below. There's a lot more to say about each of these women and why I think they ... Read More
