Second time's the charm!! Or so we hope.
Melissa McCarthy has announced that she'll be launching her very own plus-size line ready for release in fall 2015 — and it sounds like it's actually happening!!
Talk of the Mike & Molly actress creating her own collection started back in 2011, but now she's finally secured the right manufacturers to work with.
Partnering up with Sunrise Brands, the yet-to-be-named line will start off with casual sportswear, before eventually expanding to contemporary wear, accessories, and beauty products!
And while it's not usually a surprise when a celeb makes the jump into the world of fashion, we think Melissa will have a very hands-on approach with her new role. She revealed:
We are so excited about a live action Tinker Bell movie! But this is some casting we didn't see coming!
Comedy genius Melissa McCarthy will be putting on the wings as the famous fairy!

Melissa and director Shawn Levy developed a brand new take on the classic children's lit character, said to be a comedic adventure.
We're not sure exactly what that means, but we're guessing this falls more into the spoof category than Disney canon. We're guessing some purists won't like that — but we'd say to them not to knock it before they try it.
Still, Melissa as Tinker Bell? Could be some strong chances of hilarity ensuing!
No wonder she's lost so much weight! Now the question is, how is she going to shed all that height? LOLz!

Melissa McCarthy, you are looking fabulous — and we don't just mean fashionably!
According to an insider close to the star, the Identity Thief actress has reportedly shed 45 pounds!
That's pretty AH-Mazing progress and a hefty amount of weight loss for someone who's said before they weren't looking to lose any lbs at all!

Pretty cool to be invited to Adam Levine's Halloween party, no?!
Melissa McCarthy recalled the day she got (pity) invited to her old Maroon 5 neighbor's epic costume bash on Jimmy Kimmel last night — and the story was pure brazilliance!

Not only was the Tammy star delighted to attend, but she donned a pretty hysterical getup in hopes that it'd be a hit…
Little did Melissa know, most ladies would show up almost naked and leave her "Aunt Bernice" costume in the dust!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious storytelling in the clip (below)!
Strangely, there have been some mixed responses to the idea of an all-new Ghostbusters team made up completely of women.
We don't think there's any point in just remaking the perfect original movie, but a new take with a new group of gals busting heads in a spiritual sense? Genius!
And we're not the only ones who think so! O.G. G.B. Bill Murray may be hesitant to return to the franchise himself, but he's totally down with the lady Ghostbusters! He said:
"I'm fine with it. I would go to that movie, and they'd probably have better outfits, too."
But Bill isn't going to pass the protoplasmic torch to just anyone! He has some FANTASTIC choices to succeed the classics! His first pick? Same as ours! Melissa McCarthy! Bill says:
