Ruling high school ain't easy, but someone's gotta do it!
It's been 12 years since Mean Girls hit theaters and taught everyone how to dethrone the queen bees of their schools through the power of subtle manipulation and backstabbing.
The Tina Fey-written cult comedy is still one of the most quotable films ever — specifically the sharp tongued, narcissistic, HIGHlarious one liners from everyone's favorite popular clique: the Plastics.
Thanks to performances by Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert — everyone and their mother (we're looking at you, Amy Poehler) wanted to be a member of this elite fictional posse.
But are you a ruler like Regina George? A gatekeeper of secrets like Gretchen Wieners? Or maybe you have psychic abilities like Karen Smith?
Luckily, by answering a few simple questions, you can FINALLY figure out which member of the Plastics you are! Take our quiz (below) to find out!
This news is so AH-Mazing, we want to BLANK!
Alec Baldwin has played many roles over his career, but the 30 Rock alum is taking on a completely new role — as game show host!
This summer, the actor will be hosting ABC's revival of Match Game — the 1970s comedy panel show where contestants have to match the answers of six celebrities in a game of fill-in-the-blank!
The hour-long episodes will air during the network's Sunday Fun & Games programming block starting June 26 — along with the Steve Harvey hosted Celebrity Family Feud and The 100,000 Pyramid.
Baldwin will serve as executive producer of the 10-episode series, and will be donating his appearance fee to the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation!
On Thursday, the 58-year-old announced the news on Twitter, sharing:
Tina Fey Says We're Getting That Mean Girls Musical Earlier Than Expected — All Because Of Ellie Kemper's Pregnancy!
This is so fetch!
That's because due to Ellie Kemper's pregnancy, she's going to have to stop working on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt until the baby comes… which means more time for Mean Girls: The Musical!
Tina was promoting the second season of her Netflix series at the Tribeca Film Festival on Tuesday when she gave an update on her and her husband Jeff Richmond's Mean Girls adaptation, saying:
Kimmy Schmidt Tina Fey!
We all know her work (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, Mean Girls, the list goes on and on), but what we don't get to see very much is her role as a mother to Alice, 10, and Penelope, 4, who she shares with longtime husband Jeff Richmond.
So what's a normal night at home like for the Fey-Richmond's? Apparently, a lot of "old movies and pee:"
"We watch a lot of old movies on the weekends. We watch a lot of like Turner Classic movies, which I love. I have a poodle that I never trained right. So, at least once a night, I'm doing a Clorox wipe on the kitchen floor. That's mostly what our life is, cleaning up urine."
Switching gears, the Sisters star's father Donald Fey sadly passed away back in October — and while speaking to TV Guide's Damian Holbrook (who she's known since childhood), Tina talked about her greatest lessons from her dad:
"I learned a lot of discipline and work ethic from my dad. My brother and I both did. He just had a high standard for us."
Miz Fey remembered her father's passion for painting, and writing poetry and mystery novels:
"He was real amazing guy."
Well we can definitely see where she gets her creativity!
When it comes to passing on her work ethic to Alice and Penelope, Tina joked that her daughters will become "trustafarians" after seeing how much their parents work:
"'Oh, my mom is always tired. I'm never going to work.'"
We have a feeling she's not going to let that happen!
When it comes to her powerhouse relationship with Amy, the Whiskey Tango Fox Trot actress says there's a reason the two haven't collaborated together on a series:
"We're regarded as comedy team, which is totally fine by me. People sometimes used to say, 'Why don't you guys do a series together?' or whatever. And the funny thing is that I think we both know this to be true, it's because we're actually both alphas. So, it works in shorts spurts, but I don't know if it would make a real dynasty."
That makes total sense! And makes us cherish when we do see them together that much more!
LOVES this lady!

Old feuds die hard!
And it seems like this one between Taylor Swift and Tina Fey is still going strong! Over three years ago, the 30 Rock star jokingly dissed the blonde beauty — specifically her love life — while hosting the Golden Globes.
What seemed like a harmless, alcohol-inspired bit of teasing was actually super serious to the songstress, because she notoriously fired back with this quote from former Secretary of State Madeline Albright:
"There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."
The brunette beauty was not a fan of the fact that Miz Swift couldn't take the joke, and proceeded to shade her once again at the very same ceremony the very next year by referencing that very quote on stage.
But that was only just the beginning!
It appears that now, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt creator is also using her beloved Netflix show to fan the flames of this famous feud!
In one scene,
Watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper Reveal Her Pregnancy — And How Boss Tina Fey Helped Her Keep It A Secret — To Jimmy Fallon!
Females are strong as hell… except when it comes to lying!
We were so excited to learn on Wednesday that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Ellie Kemper is pregnant with her first child!
The Office alum made the official announcement when she stopped by Wednesday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she celebrated the best way possible — by eating a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream!
The 35-year-old learned she was expecting during filming for the second season of her Netflix comedy, and keeping it a secret wasn't an issue until the shooting the season finale — which was supposed to feature Kimmy riding a roller coaster.
After consulting her boss Tina Fey, they decided to say that Kemper had a back injury instead — but the actress is admittedly a "bad liar" and was horrible at keeping up the ruse!
Ch-ch-check out the clip (above) to hear what happened and catch Season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt April 15 on Netflix!
