Dear Gossips,

Yes Please.

That’s the title of Amy Poehler’s book to be released in October. And yesterday on The Today Show, they released the cover. You like it? It’s so…neon 80s. It’s a memoir with a tweak. It will be illustrated. It might be like a diary. It will address friendship, love, parenting, and more.

It WILL be funny.

There is no doubt.

And you’ll buy one for yourself and another for your best friend?

Message to all my friends: this is what I’m getting you for Halloween.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler can do no wrong. They’re responsible for two of the funniest TV shows of the last decade, they’ve made the Golden Globes actually watchable, and over the years they’ve become America’s favorite big sisters. But one thing they haven’t done is deliver a really great movie. Full Story

There's a war going on between Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and George Clooney. It started at the Golden Globes. One of their best jokes was about Clooney and Gravity -- how he'd rather float off into space and die than talk to a woman his own age. The entire ballroom erupted. They loved it. And George took it well. Full Story

They say a little fear is good. That you should do one thing a day that scares you. That it’s important to feel a little of that edge-of-the-diving-board thing every day. I don’t feel like Amy and Tina had that particular fear while hosting the Golden Globes this year. I mean, they are good friends sharing a scary gig so right there, that’s less pressure. Full Story

Let’s start with Amy Poehler. I love that Amy Poehler isn’t too big to still be doing sh-t like this – running around NYC in a goofy costume crashing into people with a camera and singing Christmas carols all while generally being funny and awesome and spontaneous. She’s the BEST. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Holidays? Sure. But… award season! The Golden Globe nominations will be announced on Thursday. In other words, the Tina and Amy Show. Tina and Amy will make coming back to work in January tolerable, promise.

Promise?

That’s a lot of pressure, right? Well, you don’t think they know that? After they killed it last year, of course they know that. That they decided to return, knowing the pressure, is the point. So don’t worry whether or not it’s unfair that it’s too much pressure. Don’t patronise them with worry that it’s too much pressure. They’re good.

Last year Tina and Amy took a shot at James Franco and he wasn’t even in the room. Franco was just named Best Supporting Actor for his work in Spring Breakers by the LA Film Critics Association in a tie with Jared Leto.  Read Full Intro

Amy Poehler went for a walk in New York with her boyfriend Nick Kroll yesterday. They’ve been dating at least 6 months now. Did you know he had such smart style? Look at that shirt underneath his sweater – sharp! In the evening, Amy and Nick were both at the Gotham Film Awards where Amy spent a lot of time with Rashida Jones which makes me happy and warm inside. Full Story

I received the following text last night, verbatim: “Tina Fay [sic] is on PBS. I just love her dress.” She was one of the presenters helping to give the Mark Twain Prize for Humor to Carol Burnett.  (This happened in October but the event aired on PBS last night.) Before we get to Tina:  1. Full Story

Tina and Amy. Twice.

I mean, it’s a no-brainer. Isn’t it? Tina and Amy have done the impossible – they’ve secured hosting spots for the Golden Globes for the next two years in a row. They were awesome, everyone agreed. They were awesome because they A) Didn’t pull any punches – they left everything on the floor; and B) Were equal opportunity offenders – Taylor Swift jokes weren’t the only ones that landed (they’re just the ones that everyone remembers some 10 months later); and finally, and most importantly… C) They didn’t f*cking care if you liked it. Full Story

It’s Monday morning. You’ve got five horrible days to get through before (Canadian) Thanksgiving. Your job’s a joke/you’re broke/your love life’s D.O.A. etc. BUT I’ve got something to show you that’s going to inspire you to keep kicking butt all week long, and it comes in the form of, of course, Amy Poehler. Full Story

Okay, let’s get the sartorial stuff out of the way first. Tina’s dress fit her impeccably. But it was, yes, kind of a boring blue. But her hair was a whole new colour! And she looked more comfortable than she often does on these carpets.  Amy Poehler looks like she’s drinking the blood of virgins. Full Story

So this article made me laugh yesterday. Because on the one hand, it’s clearly been leaked by someone who wants everyone to know that Amy & Tina have been reapproached, but on the other hand there are SO MANY bets hedged in this article. Full Story

No Girl Sh-t here… Amy Poehler and Aubrey Plaza, co-stars on Parks & Rec, went to the movies together last night. It was Afternoon Delight. Aubrey makes a great bitch face, non? I feel like we’ve underappreciated her in this department. Earlier in the day, Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher hit the gym. Full Story

The Obama administration invited several Hollywood players to participate in discussions about the Affordable Health Care Act yesterday including Jennifer Huston, Funny or Die’s Mike Farah, and Amy Poehler in the hope that they’ll be able to better educate young people about the policies and encourage youth support of the program. Full Story
