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!
Netflix Announces Another Wet Hot American Summer Series! But Where Will The Gang Be Ten Years Later??
Netflix is heading back to Camp Firewood once again!
Last year, the streaming service reassembled the star studded cast of Wet Hot American Summer for the hilarious prequel series First Day Of Camp.
Now, Netflix announced it is paddling out yet another chapter of the campy saga called Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later!
The upcoming 30-minute comedy series will take place 10 years after the original 2001 film — but should NOT be considered a sequel to First Day of Camp.
But don't worry, campers… Ten Years Later will still be set at Camp Firewood, and is being written by Michael Showalter and David Wain — who wrote and directed both the original film and prequel series.
No casting information has been released just yet, but since the OG creative team is back, we're sure Camp Firewood alumni like Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, and Elizabeth Banks will be up for a third round!
Ch-ch-check out the official announcement video (below) and get excited for WHAS: Ten Years Later, set for a 2017 premiere!
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!

Whoa! That show was bananas!
From their edgy jokes to their HIGHlarious bits, the dynamic duo completely brought the house down!
Not surprisingly, people on Twitter went nuts throughout the ceremony, and didn't hold back when it came to voicing their opinions!
At the very beginning, the Internet went crazy over the Mad Max-inspired intro — and it didn't hurt that The Rock was wearing a metallic crop top showing off his abs!
And that's a wrap, folks!
Seriously, with categories like Best Kiss and Best Fight, what more could you ask for???
