#TBT: Tina Fey’s Quotes On Kim Kardashian Are Now More Relevant Than Ever

Tina fey kim kardashian

Fans of Upper Darby native Tina Fey’s 2011 memoir Bossy Pants may remember a section in the book that’s dedicated to body image. In it, Fey sounds off on the unrealistic image standards women feel like they have to live up to, thanks to stars like Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian. The text is making the rounds on the Internet again this week, because of that vile photo of Kardashian’s bare-ass on the cover of Paper Magazine. Let’s take as moment to reflect:

Tina Fey Teams With Chelsea Lately Comedian For New ABC Comedy

TinaFeyFortune (1)

Upper Darby’s Tina Fey and former Chelsea Lately comedian Fortune Feimster are teaming up for an autobiographical TV series based on Feimster’s life. The two previously worked together on the pilot for Cabot College, a sitcom about a women’s college that begins admitting men. It was set to star Feimster and Margaret Cho and be produced by Fey and 30 Rock’s Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock, but, as we reported in August, the pilot was passed on by Fox.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair’s untitled new project also has the 30 Rock alums attached. Feimster and Hubbard are co-creators; Hubbard will write the script and executive produce alongside Fey, Carlock and 3 Arts’ David Miner.

We couldn’t be more excited for Feimster’s new project. When we spoke with the funny lady last month, she described working with Tina Fey as a great experience, saying, “She’s a good person to have in your corner.” With Fey’s TV magic and with Feimster’s comedy already taking inspiration from her real life—even her role in Cabot College was based on her time as a three-sport college athlete—we can’t wait to see where this project goes.

Movie Meter: Tina Fey’s This is Where I Leave You is a Tremendous Waste of Comic Firepower

SEE IT NOW!

1. The Conformist: A most welcome re-release of Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1970 classic about a cowardly Italian man in 1930’s Italy, who agrees to perform an assassination for the Fascist cause, even though the intended victim is his own former college professor. The film is known for its fiery political commentary—not for nothing does the film’s title suggest a complete weakness of moral character in the face of fashionable political movements—but also for its stunning production values, from the costumes and set design to the extraordinary cinematography by Vittorio Storaro. A chance to see the fully-restored version (the original U.S. print was cut by five crucial minutes) on the big screen is a huge treat for cinephiles everywhere. Playing at Ritz at the Bourse. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%
