Yesterday, Elle released their February “Women In Television” issue, complete with four covers featuring Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler, Allison Williams, and Zooey Deschanel. The Internet (including me) was quick to notice that the covers had a curious issue: while Poehler, Williams, and Deschanel were shot with about 75% of their bodies visible and in full color, Kaling’s photo was cropped to only show her face, and was black and white. It’s Melissa McCarthy all over again, and just like that time around, Elle responded to the criticism with a fairly tone deaf example of missing the point. More
Happily, Mindy Kaling landed her first major magazine cover on February’s issue of Elle. The cover is one of four for the “Women in Television” issue, also featuring Amy Poehler, Zooey Deschanel, and Allison Williams.

Today is Sarah Silverman‘s birthday! While I’m sure she probably has something more clever to say about her expulsion from her mother’s uterus, I decided the best way to honor the birthday of one of my favorite female comedians would be to rank some of my favorite female comedians (comediennes?). Specifically in terms of stand-up comedy. Because if I don’t specify that, I’ll have the world’s longest list of SNL cast members and 10 GIFs of Melissa McCarthy. More

Everyone in the world has an opinion about this November’s Elle cover. Now McCarthy is speaking up, and the comedy queen swears she chose the outfit. More
In addition to the Hollywood Film Awards, last night saw Elle‘s annual Women in Hollywood bash–which was similarly star studded. In fact, it seemed that all the famous people who weren’t on the Hollywood Film Awards red carpet turned up at the Elle party. Check out Reese Witherspoon, Marion Cotillard, Melissa McCarthy and way more on the red carpet–as well as the return of Lea Michele. More
Apparently a lot of people were pretty riled up over Elle‘s decision to put Melissa McCarthy in a tent coat, but Elle wants you to know that it wasn’t their fault. More
New York Observer Rex Reed recently said quite a few unpleasant things about Melissa McCarthy when reviewing Identity Thief, her recent comedy with Jason Bateman. More specifically, he called her “tractor-sized” and refers to the starring pair as “Mr. Bateman and his female hippo.” … More
Did anyone else grow up playing The Sims? Sure you did. Did anyone else go real far down the rabbit hole of internet downloading (at TheSimsResource, perhaps?) so you could customize your Sim families with characters from television, comics and assorted pop culture ephemera? We used to download hundreds of skins–you know, so we could finally make Buffy and Spike happy together. By which we mean, Melissa McCarthy looks exactly like a shitty version of that–the incompetent mapping of human features across a digital canvas. More
