5 Reasons to Feel Bad for Lindsay Lohan

So maybe we were a little harsh on Fire Crotch Lindsay Lohan. She obviously has a big f’n problem and her career is going down the shitter faster than.. something going down a toilet . Keli Goff from The Huffington Post makes some completely valid points about Lohan’s troubles… and it makes her seem more like a person and less like someone we like to make fun of. Sigh. We’ll miss those warm and fuzzies.

5. We All Saw this Coming

Any of us who read the Vanity Fair cover story in which a defiant Lohan proclaimed, “Yeah, motherf*%ker I’m fine,” (a catchphrase that even inspired its own shirt), all knew that “Uh … no Lindsay, you’re not.” And yet it were as though — like watching a slow-moving, multi-year train wreck — we were powerless stop it, yet that didn’t stop us from watching all along and remarking on the potential casualties.

4. Unlike Fellow Trainwreck Paris Hilton, Lohan Never Seemed Like A Real Life Mean Girl

I’ll admit to not shedding a tear when Paris Hilton was sentenced to jail time. (Okay I might have let out a giggle or two.) What’s the difference between the two equally trouble-prone paparazzi magnets? Well, aside from the fact that Lohan actually has some talent, the real difference is that Hilton’s various racial epithets and numerous spats (including helping to couch an unfortunate, infamous nickname for Lohan) seemed to indicate that she had less than zero to contribute to society (besides an unfortunate cd.) Lohan, on the other hand, is an arguable talent whose charming turns alongside everyone from Meryl Streep to Tina Fey seemed to portend a promising future — if only she had the stability to keep it all together. Furthermore, it appears that all of the trouble that Lohan has had — most of them substance abuse related — never came from a malicious place. Watching Lohan descend even further into her abyss was sort of like watching Amy Winhouse — an also talented yet tragic figure — do the same. What they both have in common is that they have never seemed mean at all, just sick and very, very sad.

3. Her Wildly Entertaining Turn In Mean Girls (And Stint On SNL)

Not much to add here, except to say it’s hard to remember the days when Lindsay Lohan was actually known for her acting ability. It almost seems a lifetime ago. Who knows? Maybe one day we’ll be putting her in the same category as Mickey Rourke for Talent-turned-disaster-turned-comeback of the century.

2. Her Family

No one’s family is perfect. In fact the definition of a “normal” American family is usually one that has simply mastered the art of being functionally dysfunctional. (Shout out to my own.) But when you look at Lohan’s family, from the mother who’s exploited her as a meal ticket (and most recently as an ice-cream ticket) for much of her life, to the father who’s pimped out her privacy to the highest bidder in exchange for his own shot at Z-list fame, it’s enough to drive any sane person to insanity…and frankly to drive a sober person to drink. The biggest difference between the child stars who become Ron Howard or Jodie Foster, versus those who become Gary Coleman? You guessed it. The fam.

1. Because Going To Jail Is The Best Thing That’s Happened To This Girl In Years

Though definitely a good thing for those of us who don’t want to face drunk drivers on the road, being sentenced to jail time could also quite possibly save Lindsay Lohan’s life, forcing her to take a break from the host of apparently unhealthy influences around her, from controlled (and not controlled) substances, to her family. Just think about that for a moment. By going to jail and rehab this person might actually be happier, healthier and better off than by being a celebrity who’s free to walk the streets.

Just for the record, Lindsay is still a brat who is delusional for thinking that she’d get away with her crimes. But, just for a sense of fairness. A change of opinion. An article without Fire Crotch thrown around.


Rachel Dratch Expecting Her First Child!

SNL alum Rachel Dratch is expecting her first child, PEOPLE reports.

The 44-year-old funnylady is due in September but no further details – including the identity of the baby’s father – have been released.

When we posted these pictures of Rachel and her pal Amy Poehler earlier this month, we thought we spotted two baby bumps in the picture!

Rachel recently appeared on SNL alongside Amy and Tina Fey, and has guest-starred in shows like Ugly Betty, Wizards of Waverly Place and 30 Rock. She’s also appeared in films such as I Hate Valentine’s Day and Spring Breakdown.

Congratulations to Rachel and her family!


Will Ferrell & Family Take A Swedish Stroll

Funny man Will Ferrell, wife Viveca Paulin and their three sons, Magnus, 6, Mattias, 3 1/2, and 5-month-old Axel took a leisurely stroll in Stockholm, Sweden yesterday (June 17).

The family-of-five appeared to be bracing for rain, armed with an umbrella and covering up Axel with a rain cover in his stroller.

Up next for the 42-year-old SNL alum is a slew of films, including the animated film, Megamind, featuring the voices of fellow celebrity dad Brad Pitt and comedy queen Tina Fey.


Matt Damon: “We’re Bracing Ourselves For Our Next Little Tornado”

With three kids and another along the way, Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso's household is about to get even busier. The Good Will Hunting star told People they're preparing themselves for the new arrival.

We're bracing ourselves for our next little tornado. We're excited. But it is a lot of work."

Matt, 39, and Luciana, 34, wed in 2005 and have two daughters together – Isabella, 3, and Gia, 21 months. Luciana also has an 11-year-old daughter, Alexia, from a previous marriage.

Damon was in attendance at the Save the Children's Celebration of Hope fundraiser in Greenwich, Conn. last night where he was honored for his work with the organization. This fell on the same night as the 30 Rock finale, where he guest-starred as Tina Fey's knight in shining armor.

Responding to reports that he'll return to the NBC comedy next season, Damon said, "If they'll have me, I would love to pop in and see the gang again. I had a great time doing it. I've worked with Alec Baldwin before, and I am a big Tina Fey fan."


Molly Shannon & Kids Land At LAX

Funnylady Molly Shannon was spotted with her two children - Stella, 7, and Nolan, 5 - at the Los Angeles International Airport after a long flight from New York City. The Saturday Night Live alum had just appeared with Betty White in the Big Apple. I loved their muffin sketch!

Molly, 45, who was well known for her hilarious Mary Katherine Gallagher character on SNL, was joined by fellow former cast members Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Ana Gasteyer. Betty, 88 1/2, and the girls brought SNL its biggest ratings this year. You go girls!


Tina Fey On Alice’s Career Aspirations

During a recent appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly, funnylady Tina Fey talked about the career aspirations of her 4-year-old daughter, Alice.

Tina said the two of them were playing at Alice's child makeup station and she asked Alice, "Why hello ma'am, what is it you do for a living?"

Alice's response caught Tina off guard.

And she said, 'I get paid to dance at parties. Where does THAT come from? God! It's terrible."

Tina has admitted Alice might be destined for showbiz. "Knowing her, I can’t imagine her doing anything else. She’s much more outgoing than I ever was as a child – I think she takes after my husband in that sense."


Tina Fey: No Date Nights For Alice

Four-year-old Alice Richmond will be ready to start dating shortly before she hits her golden years - at least if her mom Tina Fey has anything to say about it!

"She's good with the boys," Tina tells People of her adorable preschooler. "She plays nicely with both the girls and boys, but she can start dating in 50 years!"

As for the funny mom, who stars alongside Steve Carrell in the new flick Date Night, she says her ideal night out would involve her composer husband Jeff Richmond and a karaoke bar. But she'd also settle for a double date with tabloid favorites Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - with a few ground rules, that is.

"The first thing that I would do is make it very clear [to Brad and Angelina] that there is no wife swapping," Tina jokes. "I would lay that down at home before we even left the house."


Tina Fey On Having More Kids: “I’m Getting Up There!”

She's sassy, she's self-effacing, she's hilarious! Our dream BFF, Tina Fey, sat down with Daily Mail and discussed how Sarah Palin put her "on the map," if she plans to have another child, and how her 4-year-old daughter Alice will likely follow in her performing footsteps.

On having more children: "I don’t know. I’m 39 now – I’m getting up there!"

On Alice entering showbiz: "Knowing her, I can’t imagine her doing anything else. She’s much more outgoing than I ever was as a child – I think she takes after my husband in that sense."

On Alice being a child star: "Lindsay [Lohan] was 17 when she did [Mean Girls] and she was brilliant. But to have success and money at that age has got to be overwhelming. No one tells you 'No,' and I definitely wouldn’t want that for my child. I’d try to make her do theater first because you learn a real work ethic there, and we’d certainly try and make her wait until she’s done school. But Lindsay was a lovely girl," she adds, "very smart and very funny – and I hold out hope that we’ll see some really good work from her again."


Tina Fey Covers Esquire

With tousled locks and a Derek Lam mini, multi-talented mom Tina Fey goes glam on the cover of the April 2010 issue of Esquire magazine.

The 30 Rock star says she was game for the sexy photo shoot - up to a point.

"Well, I need to decline being handcuffed to a bed. I won't straddle anyone. I won't make out with a cop. There are certain things, I totally get them as a premise. And they're all good fun, and if I were a young single model, they would be appropriate, but, you know, I'm a mom. And my kid's going to find this someday. I don't want to be handcuffed to a bed in Esquire. What are you nuts? I'm not going to make out with a cop that I'm handcuffed to. I got to get my kid into kindergarten. I guess that's more of a Montessori way of learning, when they handcuff you to things."


Nicky Hilton to get married a second time?

nikkidavidPage Six is reporting that Paris Hilton’s sister Nicky is getting ready to walk down the aisle again, this time with her long-term boyfriend, David Katzenberg who is planning a proposal. The two have been dating for 4 years, which is apparently how long it took her boyfriend to come up with the cash for an engagement ring that wouldn’t automatically cause Paris Hilton to fall on the floor in a fit of laughter and subsequently hit them in the face with gamma rays shooting out of her exposed crotch.

And just in case you thought this was the sensitive and more down to earth sister of the two, Nikky forbade him from proposing to her during the Oscars. Because apparently interrupting her from watching Oscar Cojo and his bloated face dreaming of sitting on Tina Fey’s dress with a bag of Cheetos and a can of diet coke was too much to bare. Yeap, these two are definitely headed for wedded-bliss.

Via OK! Magazine:

The socialite-turned-fashion designer has been dating TV producer David Katzenberg since 2006. They became involved two years after her marriage to businessman Todd Andrew Meister was annulled shortly after their Las Vegas wedding.

Hilton dismissed rumours of an engagement to Katzenberg in 2008, but her boyfriend is now said to be preparing to make their union official, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.

A source tells the newspaper, “Obviously, David would never propose around Oscar time. But now that awards season is over, everyone thinks he’ll ask her soon.”


Guess Who Revealed: Alice Zenobia Richmond

It's Tina Fey's adorable 4-year-old daughter Alice Zenobia Richmond!

The mother-daughter duo were spotted at the Bunny Hop charity event at F.A.O Schwartz in New York City on Tuesday (March 9).

Alice's father is Tina's husband of eight years, Jeff Richmond, composer on 30 Rock.


Moms Hit The SAGs Red Carpet

Mom-to-be Paula Patton was aglow on the red carpet at last night's Screen Actor's Guild awards in Los Angeles, California. The Precious star, who is expecting her first child with hubby Robin Thicke, dressed up her bump in a white strapless tulle gown.

White was a hot color among the A-list moms at the star-studded event: Kate Hudson turned heads in a backless white Pucci gown and mom-of-two Kyra Sedgewick was gorgeous in Vera Wang. Up in the Air star Vera Farmiga opted for an off-white J. Mendel and Toni Collette shone in an empire-waist gown with gold details.

The always beautiful Mariska Hargitay injected some color into the evening with her magenta Vera Wang gown as did funny mom Tina Fey in a purple satin knee-length dress and Juliana Margulies in a blue velvet Narciso Rodriguez gown.

Which mom had the best red carpet look at last night's SAGs?

Amy Poehler On Life As A Working Mom

On balancing work and motherhood: "Any working mother will tell you that it's a day-to-day thing. You just do your best and try to make it work. Some days are harder than others. I mean, I'm lucky to have a great job and people that help me. I wouldn't be able to do it without them."

On her friendship with her fellow SNL alum Tina Fey: "We talked a lot about how we're both working long hours with kids. Our emails and texts are mostly about formula and nannies [laughs]."
