Amy Poehler gave up her first class seat to a mom in coach

Amy Poehler is all about giving advice to young comedians- but her advice (like her career) is not for the weak!

The comedian offered some words of wisdom at the Upright Citizen Brigade‘s Del Close 17th Annual Marathon in New York City on Friday. Between perfoming and doing press conferences, the Parks and Recreation star told aspiring comedians that it’s super important to figure out why they really want to break into the business.

“If the goal is doing good stuff and working with your friends … if you’re doing that then you’re succeeding,” Poehler said. “If the goal is to be famous and make money – then you’re in real trouble.”

Poehler, 43, added, “It happens rarely and when that is your goal – being famous and making money – then you’re not paying attention to the things that will make you money. It’s a long life. It’s a long process. It’s a hard business this business doing comedy. It’s not for the weak. It’s not for the weak to be living in New York. It’s hard.”

Hear, hear. I’m glad Amy’s so realistic about her career, and especially when talking to others. While talented, she’s also extremely lucky and I know she wants to articulate the fact that comedy doesn’t often mean fame and glory. It’s the process!

Are you inspired by her words? I am.

Paris Hilton Was Pranked And It Sounds Horrible

Paris Hilton Is The 'Queen Of F---ing Everything!

AS YOU MIGHT GLEAN, I’m not a huge Paris Hilton fan, but I don’t think she deserves THIS.

The heiress was involved in a really scary prank that was shared on YouTube Friday, and I think the prank is not only not funny, but honestly I think it’s also in poor taste and manipulative. Essentially, Hilton is on board a flight and made to believe the plane is crashing. GossipCop reports:

The clip is from the Arab show “Ramez in Control,” also known as “Ramez Wakel el-Gaw,” which is hosted by Egyptian TV personality Ramez Galal. It was filmed in Dubai, where Hilton often travels for a business and pleasure. The socialite is initially seen arriving at a red carpet event, supposedly for a hotel’s grand opening, where she is apparently unaware that her handler is wearing an ear piece in which Galal is giving instructions for what Hilton should be goaded into doing.

She is eventually invited onto a jet, believing she and other guests are going on a 15-minute aerial tour of the city. After takeoff, the pilot begins doing stunts in the air that make it seem like the plane is plummeting, and alarms inside the cabin start going off. As one might expect in that situation, Hilton begins freaking out.

The star cries and screams as chaos erupts, and she’s made to think her only option is to jump out of the plane, and then led to believe they’ll land in water. After a number of terrifying minutes, the flight safely comes to a stop on the runway. It’s only after Hilton gets off, still crying, that she’s told it was all a prank.

Understandably, Hilton is not only stunned, she’s also quite pissed. And Galal is actually happy at her reaction, exclaiming that they “succeeded.” Hilton has never made mention of the stunt on social media, but the footage was reportedly able to air because she had signed a consent form before the charade began.

UGH.  “Ramez in Control” premiered earlier this month, and apparently it does this trick pretty much every episode. If you hate yourself, you can watch Hilton’s episode HERE- Hilton first appears around 6:45.

Do you think this prank is too cruel, or funny? WEIGH IN BELOW!

That’s right- I’m coining Taylor Swift‘s posse of highly successful young women the Taylor-mades, because Taylor is del facto den mom to these powerhouses. And…she has a new recruit!

The A list Millennial gal pals were joined by  Harry Potter alum and feminist activist Emma Watson for a fun group photo where everyone looked stylish and excited!

In the cute group shot posted by British singer Lauren Aquilina, the “Blank Space” singer, 25, posed with her arm around the He For She advocate, also 25.

“Spent tonight surrounded by badass girls and couldn’t be happier about it,” Aquilina captioned the photo with models Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss, Watson, Swift, and singer Sydney Sierota.

Do you think Emma’s a good fit for the Taylor-Mades? I DO.

Nia Vardalos and John Corbett have reunited and it is hot/hilarious/exciting, y’all!

While on the set of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 on Friday, John and Nia took a fun instagram selfie together. The best part? John sans shirt.

“Is someone trying to get baptized again in #MyBigFatGreekWedding2?” Vardalos, 52, teased via Instagram. In the pic, the costars looked giddy as they got ready to film in the Portokalos family restaurant.

It was announced in May 2014 that a sequel was on the way- and it is! The film will hit theatres on March 25th, 2016.

“Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” Vardalos said in a statement at the time. She joked: “Of course, a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true.”

And below? The picture that had me droooling.  It’s like a little Magic Mike, wrapped up in a Greek family comedy.
