Most celebrities these days are all coy when talking about other celebrities, as if they're all in some dumb fucking version of Skull and Bones society and have to protect each other. It's all "Cameron is so great, we had so much fun on the set," and "Did you know that Drew Barrymore never shits ever?" and thus we have to console ourselves with pictures of their cellulite. Fortunately, Tina Fey has taken no vows of silence. Last year, she warmed the cockles of our heart by calling Paris Hilton a "piece of shit" and saying she "looks like a tranny up close." Now, in Playboy, she confirms our suspicions about Paula Abdul, calling her "awful" and "disastrous … in the way she generally appears to be," according to Us Weekly, which has an excerpt of the interview on their site. Back in 2005 when Paula co-hosted SNL Fey was pregnant "and probably a little moody," she told the magazine. "But I remember thinking, 'She's a disaster! I gotta prop this lady up and get her on TV.'" It doesn't really sound like Paula was a big Tina fan, either. Later, they ran into each other on an airplane and simultaneously experienced that thing where you see a celebrity and think it's someone you know. "We both looked at each other like, 'Do I know that girl?'" Fey said. "And then we both had that moment of recognition, and she was like, 'uuuggh.' I saw it register on her face that she had had a terrible time with us."
