'Mean Girls' characters: Where are they now?

MEAN-GIRLS

This is worse than wearing sweatpants: Mean Girls isn’t getting a Tina Fey-penned sequel!

Despite some hopeful speculation from fans recently, Fey confirmed the news to Extra on Wednesday, saying, “We’re coming up next month on the 10-year anniversary of the original movie… We’re going to see if there’s any way to get everyone together, but not a movie, sadly. We’re all past high school age.” (Mean Girls 2, the 2011 TV movie sequel with a whole new group of girls, is best not mentioned.)

Like any good twenty-something, I love the movie, but the “no sequel” news is totally for the best. There’s no way people wouldn’t be disappointed by whatever they came up with, and now, fans can just continue to watch and love the original as the perfect high school satire that it is. For those that would like a little more, all hope isn’t lost: Fey is directing her energy towards a possible Mean Girls musical (which she told EW about last year in her EW Interview).

Since Fey has made it clear we aren’t going to get Regina and Gretchen’s High School Reunion, just for fun I went ahead and pictured where the whole fetch gang is now, 10 years post-high school. READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan teases possible 'Mean Girls' reunion on 'Tonight Show', has water war with Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

It’s the power of Oprah: This is the Lindsay Lohan people want to see.

The actress stopped by the Tonight Show last night to promote her upcoming reality show, which premieres on OWN this Sunday. Lohan charmingly giggled her way through a light discussion about being a selfie-taking pro, as well as her new life in New York.

But the big bombshell was Mean Girls-related. (That’s the very best kind of bombshell.) As anyone who’s been on the Internet recently is aware, the beloved high school comedy’s 10th anniversary is next month. And, according to Lohan, when she was backstage with Tina Fey before Fallon’s first Tonight Show, the two spoke about doing some kind of reunion. Viral-happy Fallon instantly volunteered to host the shindig on his show. So fetch.

Lindsay Lohan hangs with fellow 'Mean Girls' alums: Sup, Kevin G?

The Mean Girls reunion continues! Last night, Lindsay Lohan was hanging out with Daniel Franzese and Rajiv Surendra — a.ka. Damian and Kevin G — according to her Instagram. Her caption on their group photos includes a hashtagged version of the forever great Mean Girls line “you can’t sit with us,” and also “#soquiche,” which must be what the kids are saying these days.

Franzese also posted the photo on his Instagram with a slew of relevant hashtags: “Whhhat!? North Shore Reunion continues!@lindsaylohan #RajivSurendra and @whatsupdanny #DamiansYearbooks#NorthShore10yrReunion #klangkarussell #DamnAfrica #ImissLizzyCaplan.” And yes, it has actually been 10 years since Mean Girls first changed our lives when it hit theaters in 2004.

Mariah Carey directs husband Nick Cannon in hilarious 'Mean Girls' re-enactment -- VIDEO

It’s not a huge surprise that superstar Mariah Carey would be a fan of Mean Girls, because she’s so fetch and knows exactly the right day to wear pink.

To celebrate the teen comedy classic’s 10th anniversary, Carey and her husband Nick Cannon re-created the infamous cafeteria scene, in which queen bee Regina George (as played by Carey) meets new girl Cady Heron (played by Nick, of course) for the first time. Should Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan be honored or horrified by the tribute? Compare the two scenes below and decide for yourself: READ FULL STORY

You go, Lindsay Lohan! Actress posts 'Mean Girls' reunion pic -- PHOTO













Four for you, Lindsay Lohan.

It’s exactly what you wanted, Internet. Mean Girls co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Daniel Franzese (DAMIAN!) met up for dinner this week, and Lohan posted the photographic evidence on Instagram, alongside the message “@whatsupdanny #soquiche #werknyc ❤.” Franzese regrammed the pic, alongside his own message: “Sexy #regram from @lindsaylohan a Classic NYC moment after an amazing dinner at #BodegaNegra You can’t sit with us!”

Franzese: Solid Mean Girls reference. Lohan: Stop trying to make quiche happen. It’s not going to happen.

Ready to feel old? It’s been nearly 10 years (!) since Mean Girls hit theaters and introduced you to two hours of quotes you’re still regularly using in conversation.

We just hope Damian finally got his pink shirt back.

The 'Mean Girls' alphabet: Learn it, or you can't sit with us

At this point, if you can’t quote Mean Girls in about 80 percent of social situations (or recite every word in under 30 minutes), you’re a little bit behind, which is bad news considering that the 2004 hit film is still spreading its pop culture influence.

The latest development, courtesy of Buzzfeed, is a Mean Girls alphabet. What makes this alphabet better than the generic one you grew up learning? Well, for one thing, it rhymes. Also, it has ESPN and can predict when it’s already raining. So all of you young parents out there can stop teaching your child that “A is for Apple” and start explaining that “A is for Aaron, whose hair looks sexy pushed back.”

Other important lessons: “M is for Mathletes, where nerds solve for Y” and “S is for Sex. You will get pregnant and die.” Okay, so maybe you want to teach them the Mean Girls alphabet once they’re a little bit older.

Regardless of when kids learn it, chances are the next generation isn’t far from wearing pink on Wednesdays. Maybe they’ll be the ones to finally make fetch happen.

Intern recites every word of 'Mean Girls' in under thirty minutes -- VIDEO

Mean-Girls

In today’s oh-my-God-how-did-he-do-that? news: some interns can just go above and beyond what is required of them. Since its release in 2004, Mean Girls has permeated every barrier of pop and real-life culture, causing people to randomly say “Stop trying to make fetch happen!” and “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”

NextMovie’s Christopher Rosa recognized the significance of this cultural phenomenon, and managed to recite every single line of dialogue from Tina Fey’s masterpiece. Every. Single. Line. Oh, and all under 30 minutes. If you have time to spare, just watch Rosa breathlessly give the performance of the year. Beware, you might get out of breath just by watching it: READ FULL STORY

Happy birthday, Lindsay Lohan! 27 reasons we're still fascinated by you

27 years ago today, Lindsay Morgan Lohan — née Lindsay Dee Lohan — was born in New York City.

It would be easy enough to mark the occasion by snarking about the state of her career — or with a much darker headline. Somehow, though, doing that wouldn’t feel right. Despite everything — and I do mean everything — Lindsay has said, done, and struck with her car over the past nine-ish years, there’s still a part of me (and maybe even a part of you) that wants to see her bounce back from her self-imposed train-wreckitude and emerge newly born, like a phoenix rising from an ashy nest of hair extensions and cigarette butts.

But why, exactly, am I rooting for Lindsay — and still fascinated by her, after all these years? Let me count the ways:

1. Her ace black and white court attire. It’s the duality of Lohan, guys!

2. Mean Girls, which — let’s face it — may as well be reasons 2-27 on this list. Some movies give an actor a lifetime pass, no matter what else they do professionally or in their personal lives; Mean Girls is one of those movies.

3. Her first-ever television appearance — on Letterman, in 1992, as a trick-or-treater dressed as garbage.

4. Her close and, by all accounts, genuine friendship with Charlie Sheen.

5. Her intense love triangle with Hilary Duff and Aaron Carter, circa 2003.

Amanda Seyfried on 'Mean Girls' musical: 'I desperately want to be Regina'

When we heard the rumors around a Mean Girls musical, we immediately started casting the parts. But one thing we didn’t account for was the idea that Amanda Seyfried might not want to reprise her role as Karen.

After all, what about Karen would make Seyfried not want to play her? She’s pretty. She doesn’t have to think, like, ever. She gets to wear pink on Wednesdays. She has ESPN, and her boobs can predict the weather. Or rather, her boobs can tell you about the current weather conditions. So why would Seyfried want to walk away from the character who first put her on our radar? The temptation of the dark side, perhaps? READ FULL STORY

That is so fetch: Tina Fey wants Mariah Carey for 'Mean Girls' musical -- We cast other characters

Mean-Girls_510x317.jpg

While talking to E! Online on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, Tina Fey mentioned that she thought Mariah Carey could star in her Mean Girls musical. (She told EW of her plans to turn her hit film into a musical back in our September cover story.)

“Maybe she can play Amy Poehler’s part,” Fey joked, after discussing Mariah’s knowledge of the film.

Mariah Carey as Mrs. George? She certainly has the singing voice for the role. But who else would we cast in our perfect production of Mean Girls? READ FULL STORY
