Honestly, the one thing we never understood about the "female hippo" insult launched at Melissa McCarthy's weight by Rex Reed of the New York Observer, is the need for the "female" part of it. It's not as if we don't know that Melissa's a woman, and it's not as if anyone would say that a female hippo is that much different than a male hippo… it just doesn't make sense ALONG WITH SAYING IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!
If you didn't know, Melissa McCarthy is hilarious. She's one of the funniest actresses we have out there, and yet people can't seem to get past the fact that she's not as skinny as other ladies in her field! It has nothing to do with how funny she is, and yet it's brought up constantly!
Well, now Melissa is responding the fact that Rex's article was even printed:
Mike Tyson has been touring his autobiographical one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth around the U.S. and has also starred in the movie, The Hangover, and now that he has a few acting gigs under his belt, he thinks he's ready for… wait for it, SHAKESPEARE!!
The onetime heavyweight champion of the world said:
Who does Tim Tebow thinks he is, Dan Marino? Leave the acting to the professionals!! LOLz!
TiVo made the right decision in casting two kids to do most of the talking and leaving Tebow's specialty being that his last name rhymes with 'TiVo.' Ha!
Seriously, we really do like Tim — he's a nice young man who is decent at football and wouldn't hurt a fly in real life — but this is kind of embarrassing. We know one name that the Oscars can leave off their Best Supporting Actor In A Television Commercial category…
