Tina Fey's Daughter Penelope Learned the Wrong Lessons from 'Mean Girls' - Watch Here!

Tina Fey made an appearance on last night’s (October 4) episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers and dished all about her daughters – Penelope, 6, and Alice, 12, – being old enough to watch some of their mother’s work now.

“I was like, well, you’re 12 now. A lot of people like 30 Rock,” the 47-year-old entertainer recalled. “So she goes to watch 30 Rock. She watched a couple and she came back out to me and said, “Um, it’s too weird for me.” And I was like, “Oh, does it make you feel weird because Mommy had to pretend to be in love with someone who wasn’t Daddy?” And she was like, “No, it’s just too weird for me.” I was like, “OH, YOU MEAN TONALLY.”

As for “the little one,” 6-year-old Penelope, she finally watched Mean Girls and apparently extracted “all the wrong takeaways” from the comedy. Last spring, Tina brought Penelope, then 5, to watch a full run-through of the upcoming Mean Girls musical.

“She was going back to her preschool being like, ‘Let’s play Mean Girls. I’m Regina. I yell at you,’” Tina laughed. She tried to inform Penelope that there’s a positive message underneath it all, but, nope, it went right over her head.

'Mean Girls' Musical Sets A Broadway Premiere Date!

Tina Fey‘s Mean Girls the Musical is finally heading to Broadway!

Over 13 years after the movie’s debut, the musical version of the hit movie will debut on Broadway on April 8, 2018 at the August Wilson Theater in New York City.

“I tried to remember to stay at the core humanity of it, which is the behavior that comes out of all of us sometimes out of jealousy or fear. The great thing about music is it lets you get in people’s heads and inside their emotional lives in a way that you can do with a tight close-up in movies, but it’s so much bigger and warmer [in a musical],” Tina recently told EW.

She added, “I think fans will hopefully find that this has the DNA of the movie and is true of the spirit of it, but is also opened up in a lot of ways.”

Tina‘s husband Jeff Richmond wrote the music, with lyrics by Nell Benjamin. Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw is set to direct.

Tina Fey Slams Trump During Return to SNL's Weekend Update - Full Video!

Tina Fey just made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live‘s summer edition of Weekend Update to slam Donald Trump and his stance on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

The former SNL star, who actually attended the University of Virginia, joked about Trump‘s full name before giving a suggestion to viewers.

“It broke my heart to see these evil forces decsend upon Charlottesville, then our president, Donald John Trump — which I don’t think people talk enough about what a stupid, jackass name that is. Donald John? Whatever! He gets away with it because he’s gorgeous,” Tina said. “Anyway, Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, and I’m feeling sick because I’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it. Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say.”

“There’s nine more alt-right rallies planned around the country this Saturday, including one in New York City in Washington Square Park,” she continued. “Part of me hopes these neo-Nazis do try it and get the ham salad kicked out of them by a bunch of drag queens, because you know what a drag queen still is? A six-foot-four black man.”

“I don’t want any more good people to get hurt,” Tina said. “And I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and asking ourselves, ‘What can I do?’ So I would urge people this Saturday instead of participating in these screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business that you support — maybe a Jewish-run bakery, or an African-American-run bakery. Order a cake with the American flag on it like this one and just eat it, Colin.”

Tina continued the rest of her appearance while digging into the cake!
