Tina Fey on SNL

Posted on: April 13, 2010

So I’m not a big fan of Saturday Night Live.  So it’s no surprise that I never know who is hosting at what time.  But if I would have known that Tina Fey was hosting SNL this past Saturday, I might have tuned in…if I wasn’t at an amazing concert.  I personally think that SNL started going majorly downhill (it was already going downhill from the previous seasons) when Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon left the show.  So I probably would have tuned in if I could have if I knew that Tina Fey was hosting.

But then I caught this clip of “Women’s News” from the Weekend Update that Tina Fey did.  Oh Tina Fey.  I sometimes I have such high hopes for you, but then you go and do things like this:

So, I didn’t want to add to the mess that is the Sandra Bullock/Jesse James scandal.  It’s been beaten with a stick and yet we are still talking about it.  And then Tina Fey had to go an add to it.  For those who didn’t feel like watching the clip, Tina Fey basically blamed Michelle “Bombshell” McGee (and all mistresses basically) for Jesse James (and men in general) cheating.  Because everyone knows that the men wouldn’t cheat if it wasn’t for those horrible women that lure them away.  It’s not the man’s fault at all.  I expected better from you Tina Fey.

Oh, and don’t forget how she made the judgments based on McGee’s tattoos.  I, personally, don’t really like the whole body tattoo look, but that doesn’t mean that the people that have those tattoos are horrible people.

I know that the media in general have been blaming and slut-shaming McGee for this whole situation (even though it has come out that Jesse James had numerous affairs).  But I was just shocked to see Tina Fey join in just to get a laugh.  I’m very disappointed in you, Tina.

Word. My thoughts EXACTLY. I was so excited on Sunday to watch clips from the night before, and I was cringing as I did. Bummer.

Hi, I’ve been reading through your blog and really enjoy the things you write…. Please keep sharing! 🙂

I agree Tina was way off on this one.

I once asked a couple in their 80’s what the secret to the longevity of their marriage was. The woman (tiredly) answered “oh, just put up with everything he did I guess” the man said he didn’t know. She also confided in me that she had also put up with his numerous mistresses over the years.
My point being that people change and sometimes this draws them towards other people. I feel that it’s really nobodies “fault”. But to put up with infidelity after infidelity in today’s world is not the life any human being should be subjected to. I say if it’s no longer working then just split up.

In my book there’s no such thing as the other woman/man breaking up anything.

I followed the link on deeply problematic’s site to yours, and skimmed several of your posts. This one stuck out to me because it was visually stimulating ;). When i watched the clip I noticed more of a knock on men for cheating in general. She might rip into “Bombshell” but it really seemed to me that she was making a blanket statement on women that flaunt themselves for strictly sexual reasons. Now everyone is entitled to their own style and look, but I don’t think (key word think) that Tina Fey was trashing just her. She points out Tiki Barber who probably whose affair probably wouldn’t have been publicized, yet she made it known to a small audience that still watched SNL. She points out that honest trustworthy (seeming) women are walked on by men and it isn’t right.
