Tina Fey pays loving tribute to her late father Donald Fey

Tina Fey pays loving tribute to her late father Donald Fey

“Saturday Night Live” alum and award winning writer Tina Fey just lost her father Donald on October 18th as he succumbed to heart failure while at Bryn Mawr Hospital in Pennsylvania. Following his funeral service on Friday, she released a statement as a loving tribute to her father.

“He was a great dad and a talented artist and writer, but I also think of him as a Great American – he served his country in Korea, he served his city as a fireman, he took his kids regularly to art museums and historical sites,” daughter Tina recalled.

“When he taught me how to play baseball he would say to me, ‘If you throw like a girl again, we’re going in.’ (I took it in the spirit it was intended.) He read poetry and history and newspapers. He was an informed patriot. The Republican Party should have tried to clone him.”

Donald’s son Peter also read two of his poems during the service. He is also survived by his wife Jeanne, two sisters, a brother and three grandchildren.

May he rest in peace.

Tina Fey and the ‘Taliban Shuffle’

Disney's 'Muppets Most Wanted' Los Angeles Premiere

Tina Fey is heading to Kabul.  Her new movie, ‘Taliban Shuffle,’ is based on the wartime memoir by journalist Kim Barker.  The same writing/directing team is tapped to do this as did Crazy, Stupid, LoveGlenn Ficarra and John Requa.  Fey is producing along with Lorne Michaels.  

The book told of Barker’s arrival as a fish out of water in Kabul, filing stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan, dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence and the promiscuous war-correspondent culture.

I love Tina Fey and think she’s incredibly witty and talented.  She’s also hot. I can’t believe how great she looks.  She seriously gets hotter with age.

And the winners of the 2014 Golden Globes are…. (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!)

More Arrivals at The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards Arrivals  in LA

Last night was the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, and if you ask me, they were FULL of technical difficulties! The best part of the entire night was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s opening monologue. It was hilarious, and went off perfectly, without a single glitch!

Despite their flawless hosting, there were actually a ton of technical issues last night. Problems with the telepromter, problems with winners taking FOREVER to get to the stage. There were lots of issues with last night’s show.

They threw punches at stars like George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and many more. They were hilarious jokes, and none of them seemed to cross the line.

One of the funniest jokes was aimed at Leonardo DiCaprio. When announcing him as a presenter, Tina said, “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina,” she began, “let’s all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio.”

They also made fun of his ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ costar, Jonah Hill. “The Wolf of Wall Street is another nominee tonight,” Poehler said in the duo’s opening monologue. “I really loved the film, but some of it was too graphic. I mean, if I wanted to see Jonah Hill masturbate at a pool party, I’d go to one of Jonah Hill’s pool parties.”

My favorite joke of the night was the one aimed at George Clooney. When announcing Best Motion Picture Drama nominee Gravity, Tina said : “Gravity is nominated for Best Film. It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age [Sandra Bullock].”

Poehler, on Best TV Series Drama nominee Masters of Sex: “Masters of Sex is the degree I got from Boston College.” (This was followed by a high-five between the Parks and Recreation winner and Fey.)

Poehler, on Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie nominee Matt Damon: “Matt Damon is here, for Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night, in any other room, you would be a big deal. But tonight — and don’t take this the wrong way — you’re basically a garbage person.”

Fey, on Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama nominee Matthew McConaughey: “Matthew McConaughey did amazing work this year. For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, he lost 45 pounds. Or what actresses call ‘being in a movie.'”

What did you think of their performance?

Blerta must join ‘Girls’ immediately.

Last week I came down with the bubonic plague, I swear. It knocked me on my ass – and I stayed in bed for almost two days straight. I didn’t get much more done this weekend, except a lot of TV watching. (Friday night I stayed up until 2:00 watching ‘House of Cards’ – OMG SO FREAKING GOOD!) I’ve been exhausted, and felt like crap….so I’m behind of most of my TV watching. I missed Saturday night’s premiere of SNL, and I’m super bummed! Tina Fey hosted, and from what I’ve heard it was amazing.

Best skit of the night has to be this one. Tina Fey spoof’s HBO’s hit GIRLS, and it is absolutely priceless. I think Tina needs to join GIRLS as Blerta – STAT.
