Last week, Michael Bloomberg attended a press conference for the 100th episode of Gossip Girl. “I just don’t see how Blair could marry Prince Louis when she’s clearly in love with Chuck,” said the New York mayor, who apparently had nothing bigger on his plate to worry at that moment, such as the allegations of rape made against Greg Kelly, the son of his police Commissioner Ray Kelly, or the NYPD head’s own cameo in an anti-Muslim training video for NYPD recruits.
“I just wish that Nate and Vanessa had been able to work things out … but, again, I’m just a casual fan,” he added.

After a surprising collapse during an award ceremony last night at the Sundance film festival, Tracy Morgan’s health issues appeared far from over. Lewis Kay, Morgan’s publicist, was quick to rule out drugs and alcohol maintains upon his release this morning that “exhaustion and altitude” were to blame.

Shocking reports out of the Sundance Film Festival indicate that the movies have been overshadowed by celebrity behavior–in this year’s edition, by the collapse of 30 Rock comic Tracy Morgan.

Yes, there was the extravaganza at Bergdorf’s and the trick-or-treat carnival down in Soho, but that didn’t matter. At Valentino, it was karaoke night.

Kevin Rogers, the Nashville-area comedy fan whose heartfelt blog post about Tracy Morgan’s homophobic rant was publicized by Truth Wins Out—resulting in a Twitter-storm of outrage, a decision to finally come out to his parents (an hour before appearing on CNN), a knuckle-rapping for Mr. Morgan courtesy of Tina Fey, another Read More
In light of Tracy Morgan’s outburst at a comedy club, for which he’s already done the apology routine, claiming his violent fantasy about killing a gay son, we recalled Tina Fey’s speech at the GLAAD Media Awards this year (embedded below!), when her series won a prize for its episode featuring Liz Lemon’s gay Read More

Tracy Morgan has the best job security in America. His character on “30 Rock” syncs up nicely with his actual persona, though he’s just a bit more profane when inhabiting the guise of Tracy Jordan.
Just a bit more profane. Last night, the real-life Morgan walked out of his courtside seat at the Knicks-Heat game Read More
