Ms. Norbury AKA Tina Fey AKA scriptwriter of the original film, has gone on record to say “If everyone’s around, we might try to do some kind of like panel discussion. But it’s not like - it’s not another movie. At most it would be like a panel discussion with a plate of hot wings”. That is so NOT fetch, Tina!
Tina Fey has denied there will be a sequel to Mean Girls

Tina Fey may have disappointed the legion of Mean Girls fans when she shot down the recent rumours of a sequel to the classic 2004 teen comedy as its 10 year anniversary creeps into view.

Lest we forget the ill-fated TV movie 'Mean Girls 2.'
Tina Fey has addressed the talk of an upcoming Mean Girls sequel in response to the rumors which have reached a maximum as the 2004 comedy movie's 10 year anniversary rolls into view.

The 30 Rock star said "At most, it would be like a panel discussion with a plate of hot wings. It's definitely not a movie." When asked if she had written another movie, she replied "No!

Kermit and friends are set to go international with the help of their unfortunately named new tour manager Dominic Badguy, with hopes of selling-out major theatres in all the big cities of the world including Berlin, Madrid and London. As usual though, things are not about to run smoothly for these trouble magnets as they are forced to postpone their tour when Kermit becomes under suspicion for robbery. It's bad luck for him that there's another frog in town - the formidable Constantine, who organises a jewel heist with the knowledge that he may evade capture because of his unwitting doppelganger. Constantine tries to pretend he's Kermit amongst the other Muppets in an effort to evade detection while Kermit gets locked up, but will they realise their mistake in time to release their real friend and finish their tour?

Lena Dunham Will Host 'SNL' On The 8th March.

The best, the best dressed and the downright hilarious - our pre-show predictions.
Who’s excited for the Golden Globes? Given that the award show will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler again this year, the obvious answer should be “everyone”. With just hours to go until the show, we’re taking a look at some of the other acts and big moments that the night will hold.
Friendship is magic, especially when we're talking about Fey and Poehler.
1. Extra long speeches. At least that’s what Fey and Poehler have promised in their recent interview with E!News – lots and lots of nice, long, sleep-inducing speeches. "We're going to encourage people to go real long on their speeches," Poehler joked, while Fey added, "I'm going to tell people to find it. Don't stop talking until you 'find it.'"

Actors, anchors and TV hosts alike were all spotted showing their support for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' at the New York premiere held at the Beacon Theatre.
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' stars Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are snapped on the red carpet at the New York premiere held at the Beacon Theatre. The comediennes are new additions to the cast which also sees the return of the old news team led by Will Ferrell.
The legend of San Diego's Channel 4 news team may have long since dissolved over the years, but anchors Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind are set to return as part of a brand new 24-hour news channel. In a bid to innovate newsreading and once again come out on top over Ron's wife and rival Veronica, they decide that they're going to give viewers the news they want to hear rather than what they need to. As usual, their antics involve the usual scandal and debauchery, putting their careers and tarnished reputations once again in the media's line of fire. No matter though, as these co-workers have each other's backs all the way.
The two comediennes will host the 2014 Golden Globes, their second time hosting together
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the 2014 Golden Globes, making it the second time the two best friends and comedy stars will be hosting the awards show in successive years. Following the release of the nominees for the awards earlier this week, a series of promotional videos starring the pair have been released online and as you'd expect, they're pretty hilarious.
Fey and Poehler will host the awards for the second time
In the trio of videos, the pals and lovers of song and dance tell jokes and continue to run with their awkwardly funny routine used so well last year. Describing it as the biggest Hollywood party of the year, the comics joke their way through the three promos in what is a promising display before the big night actually arrives. You can check out one of the videos below, and the others here and here.
Kermit and friends return, embarking on an extensive world tour that sees them reach all corners of the globe at sell-out theatre shows in the likes of Berlin, Madrid and London. However, things can't be that easy for these disastrous Muppets as there's always someone out to bring them down; this time, a major organised jewel heist occurs stopping everyone in their tracks when they realise who the culprit is. Constantine, is the world's most dangerous frog, but he becomes even more of a threat by his striking resemblance to Kermit himself. In a horrifying turn of events, Kermit gets locked up for a crime he didn't commit - while Constantine goes about trying to fool his friends into thinking he's the good frog. Will Kermit's friends realise who they've let into their lives in time for justice to be served?
The Muppets return in 'Muppets Most Wanted' - a grippingly funny sequel to their 2011 Oscar winning movie 'The Muppets'. The new movie sees the return of director James Bobin ('Da Ali G Show', 'Flight of the Conchords') alongside writer Nicholas Stoller ('Get Him to the Greek', 'Gulliver's Travels', 'Yes Man'), and it's due for release in the UK on March 28th 2014.
The news used to be a noble profession before the likes of Ron Burgundy with his set of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind took over. Now it's all about scandal, debauchery and vulgarity and Burgundy and his team are fighting hard to keep it that way. As per usual, they manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble involving drugs in the studio, completely inappropriate news headlines, accidental racism (not to mention homophobia) and, of course, getting laid, and it's all in a bid to remain on top of the media as Ron fights his own battle to professionally tower over his wife and rival Veronica.
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' is the even more hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. There's definitely more laughs to be had from everyone's favourite news readers as Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') returns to produce it. Director Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') is also back alongside his co-writer and star Will Ferrell. It is set to feature in cinemas just in time for Christmas, premiering in theatres everywhere on December 20th 2013.
Who would have thought an acceptance speech could actually be entertaining.
By all accounts, the ceremony awarding Carol Burnett with the Mark Twain Prize last night (Sunday) was a roaring success. The comedienne has been a fixture in television for the past five decades, ever since launching her eponymous variety show in the 1960s. Since then she has been busting taboos and representing women in television with style. Sunday saw her honored with the prize at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
There are few people, who deserve it more.
As per comedic tradition, she was also honored (read: roasted) by some of the top names in the business: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Julie Andrews and Tony Bennett all performed in honor of the legendary comedienne. The show was taped and will air on November 24, which is great for all those, who enjoy a bit (or a lot) of that trademark Burnett snark. "This is very encouraging," Burnett, 80, deadpanned in accepting the prize,.

To promote the new SNL season, guest host Tina Fey imitates iconic swimsuit image.
Last weekend's Emmy Awards saw a host of beautifully dressed television stars go home with all manner of awards but, unfortunately for comedian Tina Fey, the word on everybody's lips was "nip-slip."

Tina Fey parodied her Emmys nip-slip.
It's always hard to walk away from a blunder with your head held high and laughing but that's what comedienne Tina Fey has had to do after she revealed a little more cleavage than she would have liked on Sunday night's Emmys. Wearing a cerulean-blue halterneck dress, Tina's looked one of the more secure dresses in an evening of strapless, backless, thigh-split, keyhole numbers.

Ahead of her stint on 'Saturday Night Live,' the returning host poked fun at her recent exposure at the Emmys
Tina Fey has let it all hang out again! This time though, she did it on purpose, as the award-winning comic writer mocked her apparent 'nip slip' at the at the Emmys last weekend (22 Sept.) during a promo clip for her upcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live. Fey is returning to the show where she made her name to host the first episode of the 39th season of the variety program when it returns this Saturday, 28 September.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were ready to give their advice to the Emmy awards show host as they heckled Neil Patrick Harris to 'twerk' like Miley Cyrus.
The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards came and went and the best crop of television talent have left the Nokia Theatre, and will be eager to find the best Emmy -after party Los Anglees has to offer. But what was the award ceremony like this year?
The host, Neil Patrick Harrris started off slightly sluggish and according to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, it needed something else, it needed twerking! From the front row, the two female comedians were heard shouting at Harris during his chaotic opening sequence, to start performing a 'twerk', the dance made famous by Miley Cyrus's infamous MTV Video Music Award performance.
Whilst seated at the front row wearing 3D glasses and eating a rather large bag of popcorn, both Fey and Peohler butted in on how they thought he could improve the show.
The '30 Rock' actress and comedian will be the new season's first guest host.
Tina Fey will host the Saturday Night Live season premiere episode on 28th September, it has been announced by NBC, via the NY Times. She will be joined by Canadian indie rockers Arcade Fire who will appear in the show performing some of their music.
Tina Fey To Host SNL For A Fourth Time.
Fey is just one of three high profile guest hosts for the upcoming 39th season that NBC have planned, with Miley Cyrus and Bruce Willis taking the hosting responsibilities in the second and third episodes respectively. During Bruce Willis' third week on 12th October, 'California Gurls' pop star Katy Perry will join the Die Hard actor.
Tina Fey will host the first week of the sketch show's new season, followed by the always 'interesting' Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus will have a chance to redeem herself in the eyes of her peers, to an extent at least, when she takes on hosting duties on the second week of Saturday Night Live's next season. The hit sketch show will return for it's 39th season on 28 September, with Cyrus standing in as host the following week.
Miley Cyrus will host the second week of the new season
Tina Fey will return to the show where she made her name as the host of the first week of the new season, with Arcade Fire serving as her musical guest. The week after that will be The Miley Cyrus Show, with the oft-talked about star serving as both host and musical guest in what will no doubt be a sure fire way to boost the ratings, for better or worse. Her 5 October performance can work one of two ways for Miley, either she talks her recent behaviour in good jest and routinely lampoons herself and her newly acquired stage antics, or she gets all uppity and people stop pitying her and start actually hating her. Hopefully, it'll be the first option.
Another series by the Tina Fey's Little Stranger has found a home this week, this time at Fox.
Good news for anyone already missing 30 Rock – a new comedy by the team of Tina Fey (30 Rock creator/showrunner), Matt Hubbard (executive producer) and Robert Carlock (co-showrunner) has been snatched up by Fox. The project, which was the focus of a lot of network competition, is a multiple camera comedy, set at an all-women’s college, which starts accepting men at the beginning of the story. According to a Deadline report, announcing the sale, it’s a production by Universal and Fey’s own Little Stranger company. This time, it will be Hubbard writing the project, which he will executive produce alongside Fey and Carlock.
Fox won the series against serious competition.
It’s been a good week for Fey and Little Stranger overall, with another deal closed just a few days ago. The company set up a single-camera comedy penned by another former 30 Rock writer-producer, Colleen McGuinness, at NBC. The almost omniscient Fey also has an executive producer credit on that show, alongside Carlock. The second show, to air on NBC next fall, reportedly tells the story of a woman, who finds a new home and a new family on Fire Island as she attempts to reconnect with her father.

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and friends are up to their usual tricks as they return to our screens which sees them embark on a major world tour, selling out the biggest theatres in the likes of Berlin, Madrid and London. However, as can be expected from the rabble-rousing Muppets, things don't run smoothly and they manage to get embroiled in an organised jewellery heist behind which sits Kermit's mean doppelganger and his equally evil sidekick. When Kermit gets into some serious trouble after a terrible mix up, it's up to the Muppets to once again face their enemies just like they did with oil magnate Tex Richman when he threatened to drill into the Muppets' theatre for oil. Will they succeed once again? Or will their new troubles prove too much for the feisty characters?
Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind have now hit the eighties and things are a little different. The legendary San Diego news anchors are now embarking on a different project, as part of a 24 hour news channel, but now they have fresh competition in the form of a young, handsome and well-dressed fellow anchor. Ron continues to put himself in sticky situations, this time involving some awkward racism with his new girlfriend's family during a social occasion among many other things. Will their antics extend beyond their previous capers involving angry bears and mean bikers? Or will the eighties bring with it a more streetwise news bunch? We doubt the latter.
The sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' is set to hit our screens soon entitled 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'. We'll likely be seeing yet more hijinks from one of Hollywood's favourite comedy casts as they return following at massive $85 million gross from the original movie. Produced again by Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'), Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') also makes a return as director and co-writer alongside Will Ferrell. It is scheduled for release in the UK on December 20th 2013.
We generally expect more wacky humour from Fey and Rudd than this comedy, which is packed with perhaps too-smart dialog and a lot of warm sentiment. It's an odd mix, looking for jokes in gender roles and higher education, while also finding dramatic and romantic moments along the way. But in the end, the engaging actors make it worth a look.
Fey plays Portia, an admissions officer at the prestigious Princeton University, who's in competition with her office rival (Reuben) for a big promotion as their boss (Shawn) gets ready to retire. Unhelpfully, Portia's long-term boyfriend (Sheen) chooses this moment to leave her. Diving into her job, she visits a progressive high school where the director John (Rudd) is trying a bit too hard to get her to consider unconventionally gifted student Jeremiah (Wolff) for admission to Princeton. Then John tells Portia that he thinks Jeremiah is the son she gave up for adoption 18 years earlier. Meanwhile, Portia's aggressive feminist mother (the superb Tomlin) brings up even more past issues she's never quite dealt with.
The way the screenplay piles all of this on Portia at the same time is more than a little contrived, but Fey juggles it effortlessly, throwing hilariously intelligent one-liners around even in the more intensely serious scenes. Opposite her, Rudd is more understated than usual, and also creates a strongly defined character as a rootless wanderer who just wants to help make the world a better place, but needs to pay more attention to his adopted Ugandan son (Spears). Yes, screenwriter Kroner throws in every variety of parent-child issues too.

Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind return in this hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' which saw Ron land himself a hot girlfriend, get attacked by a bear and have his dog thrown over a bridge by an angry biker. The legendary San Diego news anchors are doubtlessly set to entertain us with more news casting exploits which, according to the latest teaser trailer, will involve 'submachine guns and boobies' and getting 'stinky'. One thing's for sure, it's going to be funnier, weirder and much ruder.

Drake is reportedly the latest actor to join the star-studded cast.
As the excitement builds for the Anchorman sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, another trailer for the film was released. You can check out the second trailer, featuring the beloved cast of Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Vince Vaughn and Steve Carell. But we already knew they were in it and, exciting as that prospect is, the cameos, which have been announced recently, make this movie look even better. Viewers will get appearances by actors like Kanye West, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, Jim Carrey, Tina Fey and Harrison Ford, New York Daily News reports.
And the cameos just keep coming. After Kanye West, busy as he is, wrapped his scenes in New York last week, there was another surprising appearance on set – namely an actor, sporting a fro and the appropriate 70s duds, who looked suspiciously like singer/rapper Drake. Apparently the "Take Care" performer will be the latest star in the constellation already appearing in this film. Not only that, but the Daily News also posted several pictures of stars Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate taken during shooting. They look fierce, they look ready to go, but most of all, they look, unsurprisingly, very 70s. And if nothing else, the stills make it obvious that Anchorman 2 will definitely feature some excellent hairdos.
Tina Fey has said no to hosting The Oscars next year, but who'll do it?
Attention has already turned to the 2014 Oscars host; the problem is, though, no one knows who it’s going to be. One thing’s for sure: it won’t be Tina Fey. The comedy actress has ruled her self out in a conversation with The Huffington Post.
“But I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman - the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way,” she explained when asked if she might take the helm. The choice of 2014 host is a huge decision for the academy. Opinion on Seth Macfarlane was divided, and considering the controversial Family Guy creator was hired to lure a younger audience, it will be interesting to see if a safer choice is made next year, or they decided to push the envelope and get someone even more divisive. Chris Brown anyone? Probably not. Louis C.K. has been talked about recently; he certainly has the talent, but perhaps a comedian with his penchant for the colourful side of English isn’t the best option. Jimmy Kimmel is the safe bet.

Shut it down. That was exactly what 30 Rock did on Thursday, but Liz, Jack and the entire crew definitely went down in style. We’ll try not to spoil any major bits of the most anticipated TV event of 2013 for you, but let’s just say that all of the loose ends were neatly wrapped up – or most of them anyway. We never did learn what Kenneth’s creepy secret was – and he really does have one. Our money is on alien, but now we’ll never know. Liz and Jack’s longstanding friendship had probably the best possible farewell, paying tribute to one of the most entertaining on-screen dynamics of the last decade. Not to mention one of the best written – despite playing off of each other for seven years, the 30 Rock writers have always been clear that this particular pair will never slip into the will-they-won’t-they cliché.
