Tina Fey Isn’t About To Let Her 7-Year-Old Become The Next QuvenzhanÃ© Wallis
Tina Fey may be a mommy of two in show business, but that doesn’t mean she’s championing her 7-year-old daughter AliceÂ to follow suit. In fact, it means quite the opposite. Hold strong on this one, Tina.
People magazine reports that although Tina did let Alice have a cameo on 30 Rock, she’s all about “holding [her kids] back” from this “exciting life” — at least that’s how they perceive show biz to be. But after watching her mother co-host the Golden Globes withÂ Amy Poehler, Alice “lost her mind” overÂ Beast of the Southern Wild darlingÂ QuvenzhanÃ© Wallis. The infatuation continued during a good old fashioned Oscar viewing party at the Fey-Richmond household.
Quvenzhane’s age alone reportedly had the kid transfixed:
â€œThereâ€™s a 9-year-old?! Thereâ€™s a 9-year-old?!â€ Fey, who is also mom to Penelope, 19 months, recalls her elder daughter shouting.
â€œLet it go. Step away,â€ she jokingly responded. â€œI made her write out a poll so everyone who came to our Oscar party had to [vote] â€˜Should Alice be allowed to be in movies?â€™ And I was the only person that said â€˜No.â€™ I was like â€˜Unfortunately for you, I am the only vote that counts.â€™â€
Tell it like it is. Way to shut that one down, mommy.
