No Forseeable Future In Film For Alice Fey, Says Mom

3/11/2013 6:30pm EDT
Tina Fey
Tina Fey has banned her daughter, Alice, from following in her star-studded footsteps over fears she is too young to work in the entertainment industry.

Tina gave Alice, seven, a cameo role in one of the final episodes of her hit TV series 30 Rock, but insists she has no intention of letting her child pursue a full-time career in Hollywood as a young starlet.

She tells, "With my kids, so far it seems to be about me holding them back. They see this exciting life (and want to be part of it)." But Tina is committed to having them grow up normally, without the chaotic influences of...

Tina Fey Used Fast Food As Motivation For 'Admission' Sex Scenes

Tina Fey
Tina Fey rewarded herself with a double fish filet from McDonald's after she finished shooting her steamy love scenes with Paul Rudd for new movie Admission.

The former 30 Rock star plays a college admissions officer who falls for Rudd's character in the upcoming comedy, but Fey was so nervous about stripping down for the role, she used fast food as an incentive to get her through the shoot.

She tells People magazine, "It was a terrifying nightmare. To clarify how much I like this stuff: I had a long-standing agreement with my hair and makeup people that when we shot the last romantic s...

Tina Fey Says 'No Way' To Hosting The Oscars

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Don't expect Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to make the jump from the Golden Globes to the Academy Awards next year.

A day after Seth MacFarlane said there was no chance he would return to host the Oscars next year, Tina Fey has revealed to Huffington Post that she has no plans to run the show, either.

Asked if she would host the Oscars, she said, "No, you can. But I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman -- the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way."

After being asked if there was even a "one in a million chance" she would host, she...

As we inch closer to the Academy Awards, tons of stars celebrated themselves at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

Jaimie Alexander of "The Last Stand" (above) was one of the few celebs who showed some skin on the red carpet in a low-cut black Marc Bouwer gown. Most opted for more conservative ensembles in black, navy blue, and other neutrals.

A handful stood out in bright colorful gowns, including Jessica Chastain and Kaley Cuoco in bright red and Lea Michele in a bright pink dress.

Jennifer Garner, whose husband Ben Affleck is earning accolades for "Argo," looked ele...

TV Ratings: Golden Globes Shine, CBS Shows See Series Highs

1/18/2013 9:45am EST
Golden Globe Awards
It was quite a ratings week. CBS dominated overall with an impressive average of nearly 13.3 million viewers. FOX handily won the week’s top program, the Packers/49ers game, with 30.9 million viewers. Still, that was the network’s lone bright spot. No wonder they’re heavily promoting ‘American Idol’’s “fued” between the judges.

CBS’ success for the week was largely driven by its top two scripted shows: ‘NCIS’ and ‘The Big Bang Theory,’ which hit another series high last week. It marked the first time in nearly six years that a network managed to net more than 20 million viewers from two sc...

Julie Bowen
The red carpet was full of bright colors at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards last night, but yellow was the most popular. "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen, winner of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, looked oustanding in a strapless canary yellow gown.

"Homeland" winner Claire Danes, who is several months pregnant, also opted for a strapless yellow dress that was (obviously) more loose fitting than Julie's.

"Game Change" winner Julianne Moore picked a more conservative yellow gown with long sleeves, a higher neckline and a billowing skirt.

Kim Kardashian Is The Second Highest Paid 'Actress' On Television

Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian isn't number one on Forbes' recent list of the highest paid actresses on television, but she's pretty darn close.

The E! reality star made a whopping $18 million over the last 12 months. She earned that big chunk of change from filming her series "Keeping Up With The Karashians" as well as from her perfume and the clothing line she shares with her sisters.

And the Kardashians seem to be taking over the world. Her younger sis Khloe came in at the number five spot on Forbes' list with $11 million in total earnings.

Childish Gambino, AKA Donald Glover, released a new mix tape entitled Royalty. But he isn't the only NBC comedy star rapping on the album - Tina Fey cameos on a track titled Real Estate!

The last track is mostly about investing in real estate once Glover gets "that white people money." Another amusing line: "I got houses in the mountains, man Will Smith live down the street."

However, the "best" was saved for last, when unlikely rapper Tina Fey takes the mic. "Yeah we in here, we in this thing / Gambino is forever, royalty is forever / We ballin' so we f--kin' up the hardwood, homie / Thi...

Tina Fey has reassured 30 Rock fans Alec Baldwin is staying on the show for at least another season.

Speculation that the actor is leaving the Emmy-winning comedy has grown after he tweeted he would be "leaving (TV network) NBC just in time" earlier this month.

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...
