Tina Fey: Bossypants. A Review from TheGirlFromTheGhetto

Bossypants by Tina Fey

Tina Fey is fabulous. This has to be said, because I’ve been a fan of hers for a long, long time. How could anyone not like her? She’s funny, talented, an enthusiastic performer, nerdy as hell and looks like a real woman should look. When I found out she was writing a book I was over the moon with happiness, so when I was sent a review copy of Bossypants, I was praying that her book would deliver as I suspected it to, despite picking that awful front cover.

While I enjoyed this book and laughed my butt off repeatedly while reading it, I wish Fey would have opened up more to her readers during certain stories. For instance, she brought up her face slashing as a young child, but wouldn’t tell the story and only said, “I only bring it up to explain why I’m not going to talk about it.” She brushed it off saying she didn’t want to be asked about it in the news media repeatedly on her book tour, but I feel that was a big cop-out. While I understand why she doesn’t talk about it on a regular basis, I thought to myself if a celebrity is writing a book about themself, shouldn’t they include all of their stories, and not just the filtered stories?

Jim Ward Wins Daytime Emmy Award

I would like to congratulate voice actor Jim Ward for winning this year’s Daytime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program category for his role as Eyemore, The Crusher in Biker Mice From Mars. Ward was up against fellow voice actor Jim Cummings in the category, as well as celebrities Joan RiversVanessa Williams, and Amy Poehler.

Jim Ward is also one of the “mooks” on the Stephanie Miller Show on Air America. It was funny to me that I was listening to him in the car when moments before I heard him on “Fairly Odd Parents” as Chet YaBetcha.
