Things got extra spicy at Tuesday's White House press briefing!
Spicer interrupted Ryan's question to unleash a cued-up tirade, barking:

Queens will be Queens.
Ava DuVernay is not shy when it comes to her sharing opinions on Hollywood and how they treat both people of color and women.
In fact, as a black female director, the Golden Globe-nominee has a personal stake in the matter, which makes her latest news all that more exciting!
While interviewing with Reelblack at the Sundance Film Festival on Wednesday, Ava disclosed that in an effort to promote her peers, her upcoming OWN drama Queen Sugar will feature an all-female directorial team!
Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Kofi Siriboe, and Omar J. Dorsey begin shooting in New Orleans this February, and we cannot wait to see the finished product next season.
Bet we don't see an #EmmysSoWhite later in the year.
Ch-ch-check out Ava's inspiring video announcement (below)!!!
"We're really excited to have our first child. This is a new experience for both of us."
As for having a girl, the Ordinary People singer said he would've been just as thrilled either way:
More high-profile people are speaking out about diversity in Hollywood — and it's about time!
The Girls creator opened things up by being very candid about how studios ought to take a look at diverse voices and talent in El Lay:
Kristen Stewart isn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers!
In Hollywood, one of the most controversial topics today is gender equality. As we reported, readers were shocked when they learned that The X-Files tried to pay Gillian Anderson half of what they offered David Duchovny!
Recently, KStew visited the Variety Studio in Sundance to promote her new film Certain Women, and was asked about the issue. Let's just say her response may surprise you.
First, the 25-year-old concedes that she is a highly paid, in-demand actress who hasn't experienced the same prejudices that other thespians have faced.
But technically speaking, Jon Hamm only has the most recent trophy under his name — and John Hamm has the other!
Speaking to Vanity Fair at the Sundance Film Festival, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actor revealed that when he won his Golden Globe back in 2008, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association misspelled his name on the trophy!
Due to the writers strike that year, the traditional Globes ceremony didn't happen — instead, the winners were announced at a news conference that day!
And Hamm remembered getting his award in the mail later on, only to discover it was for "John Hamm" — he recalled:
"I was like, ‘Oh man. Uh, guys, there's no ‘H'."
Awww! We'd feel bad for him if he wasn't a two time award winner! LOLz!
We're sure the association won't make the same mistake when they mail Hammm the plaque this year! Oh shoot…

Nick Jonas is on fire!
Not only is the Jealous singer on the top of the music charts, but the 23-year-old stud's acting career is also at an all-time high.
In his new flick Goat — which is getting a lot of buzz since its premiere on Friday at the Sundance Film Festival — Jonas plays a college student who struggles with the morality of his frat's pledging process as he watches his younger brother being hazed.
He told People:
Poor Daniel Radcliffe.
The British actor has a film premiering at Sundance Film Festival this weekend, and, uh, it's not going so well…
Radcliffe and Paul Dano are starring in Swiss Army Man, a film which — seriously — is about a dead guy who comes to life through farting.
Not surprisingly, it's been
