The Stars Of The Original “Mean Girls” Were Reportedly Supposed To Appear In The Upcoming Movie Musical, But Talks Have Stalled Over Money
2004 was a much easier time to be a passive-aggressive, petty person: you could wail, “YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US!” or “she doesn’t even go here!” at anyone you didn’t feel like messing with. Everyone would just laugh and laugh and just pretend you were innocently quoting Mean Girls while swallowing the fact that all involved knew deep down you probably actually didn’t feel like fucking with that person. Paramount+ is currently working on a Mean Girls musical movie based on the Broadway musical that was based on the original movie that was based on a book. Since we’ve hit that point in the availability of new ideas, maybe the old Mean Girls standards will regain life anew. However, original stars Rachel McAdams, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert were slated to be in the film, but contract talks are allegedly at a standstill because of Paramount+’s “disrespectfully” low-money offer.
Last night was supposed to be Saturday Night Live’s holiday episode and it was the fifth time that Paul Rudd hosted, so he was inducted into The Five-Timers Club. But the true host of the night was that bootleg Transformers-sound bitch Omicron. SNL should’ve opened with Omicron smugly declaring, “Live from New York, it’s ME!” Because just hours before the show was to begin, we learned that SNL was hit with a COVID-19 breakout and several cast and crew members tested positive. Other cast members called out after deciding that it was too risky to do the show. And because of the bare-bones crew, musical Charli XCX also bowed out. All live skits were scrapped and the show was made up of an awkward cold open, pre-taped skits, classic skits, and Tina Fey filling in for Colin Jost on Weekend Update. Honestly, the show should’ve just been People’s Sexiest Man Alive winking and smoldering for the camera for 90-minutes straight.
At Last Night’s Golden Globes, Amy Poehler And Tina Fey Managed To Roast The HFPA Together From Separate Coasts
Long-time besties, comedic duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, hosted the 2021 Golden Globes last night and it was a different show than usual in the sense that they were hosting separately from different locations and their audience was filled with first responders instead of the Hollywood glitterati. But some things remained from your usual non-coronavirus awards show. Like roasting the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the nominees who may or may not have bought off their votes with fancy trips to Paris.
Mariah Carey loves Mean Girls like Mariah Carey loves shading people. And she proved that when Mean Girls creator Tina Fey tested her knowledge for Billboard. Mariah easily got her Ph.D. in Mean Girls and did it while her fan was set to “Soap Opera Intro Breeze.”
Like Jimmy Fallon, Justin Trudeau, Robert Downey Jr, 30 Rock gave the world blackface. And the show, which ran from 2006 to 2013, featured blackface in four episodes. And Tina Fey has apologized and asked that the episodes be scrubbed from TV and streaming services. I wonder if Megyn Kelly has had another meltdown yet?
It’s official – Ricky Gervais really won’t be back next year to host the Golden Globes. But that doesn’t mean celebrity egos will get any less of a break. Variety says that creep-dragging icons Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been announced as the hosts of the 2021 Golden Globe awards. Those poor Oscars. They can’t even get one host, and here’s the Golden Globes bragging that they already have two lined up for a ceremony that’s a whole year away.
