YAS, TINA FEY! YASSSSS!
Fey did an interview with Town & Country, and she turned it into her own platform for criticizing Hollywood Gender norms. I love her, I love what she does, and I love how she takes a simple interview that was probably set up to promote her new film, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, and made it a call to arms.
Here are the highlights:
On aging in Hollywood: “The greatest challenge for me as an actress is just getting older,” she says. “Trying to play the scene at hand while also trying to hold your face up. Fast-forward to being 68, and it’s a glorious act of bravery.”
On women in comedy:People really wanted us to be openly grateful—’Thank you so much!’—and we were like, ‘No, it’s a terrible time. If you were to really look at it, the boys are still getting more money for a lot of garbage, while the ladies are hustling and doing amazing work for less.'”
On helping other women: “We really are a generation that is there to work together and not be tricked into thinking we have to backstab each other to get somewhere. So while I can’t take credit for the trend, I am definitely not part of the problem.”

“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!
