Tina Fey Walks The 'Tuck Everlasting' Red Carpet With Husband Jeff Richmond
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Tina Fey and her husband, Jeff Richmond, walked the red carpet together at the opening of "Tuck Everlasting" on Tuesday night.  For the Broadway premiere, Fey wore a little black dress with flower embellishments. Her husband opted for more colorful attire, pairing a navy striped suit with a pink shirt and hot pink tie.  Fey was joined at the event by Ron Howard, Bernadette Peters and Melissa Joan Hart and a host of Broadway stars on the red carpet.  Fey recently confirmed that she and her composer husband were working on the "Mean Girls" musical together, though she joked that the production is still "years away" from being completed. Though she and Richmond have been together since 2001, we're always a little shocked to see Fey without her other life partner, Amy Poehler.  But if you're still holding out for a Tina Fey-Amy Poehler TV show together, Fey told an audience at the Tribeca Film Festival that that's just not gonna happen.  function onPlayerReadyVi...

Clarissa From 'Clarissa Explains It All' Is All Grown Up In New Book
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Ah, the '90s. Things were so much simpler then! High fashion meant throwing on a jean jacket and a scrunchie, and happiness meant airing your woes to the tiny pet alligator you kept in a sandbox in your bedroom. At least that was the case for Clarissa Darling, the 15-year-old heroine of “Clarissa Explains It All.” Aside from pulling off the ideal side ponytail and yukking it up with her neighbor Sam, who swung by her room via ladder, Clarissa enjoyed narrating the travails of high school to a rapt audience of young Nickelodeon lovers. The poster for the show is a nod to its message: Melissa Joan Hart shrugs nonchalantly, as if to say, “Growing up is weird! What can you do?” Over five seasons, the plot of the show followed suit. In each episode, Clarissa handled everything from getting a training bra to publishing articles in the school paper with savvy and wit. “Clarissa Explains It All” ended when Clarissa finished high school. But the show’s creator, Mitchell Kriegman, ...
