Television and movie star Tina Fey recently did a very fancy-looking interview with Net-a-Porter’s very fancy-looking online magazine (which is, of course, not to be confused with a bi-monthly email blast featuring aspiring YouTube stars who work at Ross Dress For Less published by the dude who installs the price check scanners). She says a lot of things in it, one of which is that she’s not exactly a fan of having to explain a joke she made, or releasing an “I’m sorry” statement every time a joke chafes someone’s asshole.
“Steer clear of the internet and you’ll live forever. We did an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt episode and the internet was in a whirlwind, calling it ‘racist’, but my new goal is not to explain jokes. I feel like we put so much effort into writing and crafting everything, they need to speak for themselves. There’s a real culture of demanding apologies, and I’m opting out of that.”
I’m assuming she’s referring to the time Jane Krakowski played a Native American lady in rich white lady drag on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and it rustled the internet’s jimmies. So if you’re one of those people and you’re still waiting for Tina to bust out her 30 Rock stationary and write an apology letter, I have some bad news for you.
Tina also admitted that she was the Regina George of her High School (“Get in loser, we’re going to go to there“) and that looking at the real-ish faces of the Real Housewives is currently the thing that is preventing her from walking into a plastic surgeon’s office and asking for the Bravo special. And if she needs a second reason why not to go full-Kardashian in the face, it’s that she won’t be able to play Sarah Palin on SNL anymore. Like she did last night:
I know she was supposed to be playing back-in-time Sarah Palin, but I really would have loved to see her snatch the studded western belt and leather line dancing pants off a cougar from Branson, MO and played current-day Sarah Palin.
Here’s more of Tina in Net-a-Porter looking like Ms. Norbury after marrying Randy from Chase Visa and finding out he’s actually rich as fuck, as well as a couple pics of Tina leaving the SNL afterparty last night.
