“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.

Hey Mean Girls fans…you won’t have to wait much longer for the MUSICAL VERSION!
The Mean Girls musical from Tina Fey; her composer husband, Jeff Richmond; and lyricist Nell Benjamin is expected to be finished by late summer, Billboard reports. And then…they start to workshop it!
“We definitely want to see some kind of shape by the end of the summer,” says Richmond of the adaptation of the 2004 film about a treacherous clique of high-school girls that starred Lindsay Lohan, Lizzy Caplan, Rachel McAdams and Amy Poehler. (Fey wrote the screenplay and also appeared in the movie.) “With that in mind, we know that 60 or 70 percent of that will go away when we start bringing in real singers and actors. We’ll do a lot of rewriting.” He adds that “the most difficult part of the process is determining, ‘What are your best song ideas, and what do you leave alone as dialogue?’ “
Well, we’re all super excited to find out!

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, Love, Glenn 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.

Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, is branching out from politics!
The politician landed a coveted role in the final episode of 30 Rock! And hey, don’t go worrying about her appearance taking time away from her fiscal cliff responsibilities… the hour-long series finale was tapped back in mid-December while the senate was significantly less busy.
And why did Mrs. Pelosi decide to make an appearance on the show? She said the choice was clear, and that “she would do almost anything Tina Fey asked her to do.”
Wow! Don’t abuse this power, Tina. FOR REAL!
Also (and way less more notably) Ice T will be making an appearance on the series finale. So…Nancy and Ice T… what will be the plot? Where will these two fit in? AHHH! I can’t wait to see this final episode…can YOU?
