This Is The Most Mariah Carey Story We've Ever Heard
Huffington Post - 9 months
Here is a story of unfettered beauty, one that complements every Mariah Carey anecdote you’ve ever heard or imagined.  Picture it: Los Angeles, 2015. Production on “The House” ― a rowdy comedy starring Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell ― is underway. Mimi, long ago emancipated but not yet the subject of “Mariah’s World,” shows up during a day of reshoots to film a cameo. According to co-star Rob Huebel, she is four hours late and has demanded her team fill her trailer with “all white roses” and stuffed lambs. (Carey often calls people “lambs,” and her fans have taken to using that moniker, as well.) She’s supposed to perform a song in her scene, but she doesn’t want to sing the one requested of her. But wait. This is about to get good. “So then they were going to do this bit where they shoot her, I think, and they kill her — in the movie; not in real life,” Huebel said during a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio. “But she didn’t want that. She was like...

Tina Fey has a message for all the college-educated white women that voted
Yahoo News - 11 months
Tina Fey isn't one to mince words—and she had some very important things to say on Friday night.  The comedian took part in the American Civil Liberties (ACLU) Facebook Live telethon, fundraising alongside Amy Poehler, Tom Hanks, and more for the organization. During the nearly four-hour-long broadcast, Fey took the opportunity to speak to Donald Trump supporters—and specifically, to the college-educated white women voters among them.  SEE ALSO: Like Tina Fey? And the ACLU? Do we have the livestream for you. “A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV,” the actress said during an interview with Donna Lieberman and Louise Melling of the ACLU.   “I would want to urge them to, like — you can’t look away because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually." Fey is referring to exit poll numbers from November's election that show Donald Trump's voters were ...

Huffington Post - 11 months
WATCH: @MatthewPerry talks about 'FRIENDS' and his all-time favorite Chandler Bing one-liner! pic.twitter.com/lEPqAbj1JE — Good Morning America (@GMA) March 30, 2017 Matthew Perry played Chandler Bing on “Friends” for 10 seasons. That works out to more than 200 episodes that he played the overly-sarcastic character, who regularly spit out zingy one-liners. With so much material to choose from, if you thought narrowing down a favorite would prove to be an impossible feat for the actor, well, guess again.  On Thursday, the 47-year-old actor appeared on “Good Morning America,” where he was promoting his new mini-series, “The Kennedys After Camelot,” and revealed his all-time favorite “Friends” one-liner to the show’s hosts. It turns out, Perry’s fave comes from Season 2’s “The One with Ross’ New Girlfriend,” during which Chandler is talking to Joey (Matt LeBlanc) about his longtime tailor.  “You should go see Frankie, my family’s been going to him foreve...
