The 2004 flick, Mean Girls,  written by Tina Fey remains one of my favorite teen films of all times.  For the movie’s 10th anniversary, EW invited the film’s female leads to come together and dish about their memories, behind-the-scenes magic, and what they think their characters would be doing now.

These are some of my favorite Mean Girls quotes:

On Wednesdays we wear pink.” (I’ve actually written posts about this one).

“Gretchen, stop trying to make fetch happen! It’s not going to happen!”

I’m sorry I called you a gap-toothed bitch. It’s not your fault you’re so gap-toothed.

You can read this delicious interview on EW’s site, here.

Saturday night video: Emma Stone

This week Emma Stone visited the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and it reminded me of  her last visit in the spring when Fallon challenged Stone to a lip sync battle.  Who would’ve guessed that Stone would annihilate Fallon? I love this clip, but for all you ADHD types out there, if you get impatient fast forward to 5:20.

Have a great Saturday.

CBS to premiere The McCarthy’s: Boston family with gay son

The McCarthy’s is a new sitcom on CBS that takes place in Boston later this month. The lead role stars former NKOTB singer, Joey McIntyre.  I hadn’t heard of the show until I read Out.com’s review, which by the way panned it.

Out.com reviewer, Daniel D’Addario, wrote, “The problem is that Ronny [played by Joey McIntyre] is the kind of walking cliché that savvy viewers would think disappeared sometime between Will & Grace and Happy Endings.” (outch!)

D’Addario describes the portrayal of the gay character played by Joey McIntyre as something that would have been in vogue 10-15 years ago.  While I’ve never been one to put too much credence on reviews, some of the critiques make me cringe. Hopefully a more interesting storyline will emerge following the pilot.  Do you plan to watch The McCarthy’s?

Single Ladies

I’ll be the first to admit I love Beyonce, but her lyrics are ridiculous. Little BoBo (actress Nina Millin) on YouTube has created a series of posts called The Beyoncelogues where she offers dramatic readings of Beyonce’s redick lyrics. The result is hilarious.  Enjoy.

George Clooney as a Leather Daddy

George Cluny My guess is that this is photoshopped but I just don’t care. I love this.

Chelsea Handler

Chelsea HandlerChelsea Handler’s popular show, Chelsea Lately, on E Television will end on Tuesday, August 26th.  I’m  not sure what is next for the author of Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea.  Her show has given a number of comedians an excellent platform, and I really liked her format which is very different from other night time talk shows on television.

I have no idea who will follow Stephen Colbert after he replaces David Letterman on CBS, but I’d love to see her follow Stephen and replace the Craig Ferguson Late Show.
