Amy Poehler is set to write an “illustrated, non-linear diary.” (A graphic novel/memoir?) It Books will be releasing Poehler’s masterpiece in 2014 and had this to say,  “Her (Poehler’s) original twist on the conventional memoir will have universal appeal. An illustrated, non-linear diary full of humor and honesty and brimming with true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons, the book will be a unique and engaging experience from one of today’s most talented and beloved stars.”

Allison Janey has been cast as Anna Faris‘s mother in the new CBS sitcom pilot Mom. This is a match made in my brain’s heaven! If Hillary Clinton guest stars on the show, I will literally explode from happiness.

Speaking of Clinton, this is her last week as Secretary of State. (I’m gonna miss you, baby!) If you have a second, consider signing the HRC’s thank you letter to her for being a champion for LGBTQ rights.

Tina Fey revealed (once again) that she is working on Mean Girls: the MusicalThat’s right, a stage adaption from Fey’s brilliant 2004 hit film. Who would you cast in Lindsay Lohan’s role?

Rumor has it that the next installment of Star Wars might have female protagonist. (I think Katee Sackoff should be cast to play a female version of Obi Wan Kenobi.) 

On the latest installment of TLC’s My Strange Addiction we meet Lisa, a woman who eats her cat’s hair and cleans her cat with her tongue. This is beyond disturbing.
