Melissa McCarthy is having a moment.
The actress seemed genuinely shocked when she won an Emmy for her work on “Mike & Molly,” but her win is more of a long time coming than it is a Cinderella story.
The former “Gilmore Girls” and “Samantha Who” actress, who gained recognition from her CBS sitcom and hilarious role in “Bridesmaids,” just sold her first network pilot script to CBS, according to Deadline.
McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone - he played the air marshal in “Bridesmaids” - will reportedly co-write and co-executive produce the multi-camera comedy “about a woman in her mid-40s who has a spectacular midlife crisis,” according to Deadline. “The show is about what a midlife crisis means for a woman, which is very different from the way it affects men.”
Also on tap for the new queen of comedy:
Kurtz plays a widow who is looking for happiness along the way. http://bit.ly/oUGer7
melissa m. is a very talented actress thats why she got 3 or 4 emmys
I would luv to have had one of the veteran actresses win but I luved when she played suki on gilmore girls and I hear she is hysterical in Bridesmaides... and all of the above negative comments about her size and weight are horrible. GLASS HOUSES PEOPLE, GLASS HOUSES!!! Lets put you all on the scale!!!
Maybe she could get on Dancing with the Stars and lose 100 pounds.
maybe you can go on dancin with the stars and lose 100 lbs!!
THIS POST IS FILLED WITH A BUNCH OF BROKE A$$ HATERS. KEEP CHOWING DOWN AND STUFFING YOUR POCKETS WITH ALL THAT GREEN. WE LOVE OUR HATERS....LOL
As someone who to struggle with her weight, it's those of you calling people haters or making nasty comments to those doing the fat jokes that are ticking me off. Yea Melissa is funny, although you couldn't pay me to watch Bridesmaids. I find most of these fat jokes so idiotic that they're funny. Those of you who take offense are the sad ones.
Looks like typical american insults as usual whenever there is a "sound off" on these blogs. Time to crawl out from under your rocks and see the real world.
Huh, would she be skinny in Canada?
She is a lovely person and love her show. I wish her continued success as she's earned it and proves herself worthy and not shallow as those "others". Keep it strong Melissa !
Melissa McCarthy? She's a Horse.
Wow. It's amazing how someone's weight can inspire such hateful comments. If the jokes were regarding race, we'd all be upset. I guess it's completely acceptable to call people "fat pig."
WOW, you are stupid. Race is inheritied. Fatness is a choice. One chooses eat like a fat stupid smelly pig or one chooses some discipline and puts down the feedbag. Most fat people, after taking a hot doodee in the toilet turn around then eat it all over again just in case they left a few carbs.
Fat smelly people are fat and smelly PIGGYS!!! HHEERRREEEE PIGGY!!
What a bunch of sad people here you all must really be so unhappy with your own lives that you have to dump all over this women. How sad for you all that had mean things to say.
I think she is funny, talented and entertaining and I bet all you all laugh at her jokes watch her show and movies!
life is too short take it as you go be happy for other people.
I bet her favorite ice cream is Hogging daz.
Most of you that put that woman down are probably secret chubby chasers.
We used to have contests to see who could bed the fattest girl over a given weekend. We called it hoggin'.
They should change the name of the series to "Mike & Moby Dick"
Good work, my friend. I see what you did there.
I like the show Mike and Molly and in the beginning it was about addressing their problem with overeating and losing weight. Since the show started though, they both look like they have gotten heavier. She looks at least fifty pounds heavier than the first show.
I bet she would be really good at Sumo Wrestling or the County Fair Pie eating contest.
Late at night when no one is around I bet she eats a lot of her own doo doo.
I hope the Emmy attention makes up for the beat downs she may have taken over the years due to her size and the ignorance of others.
Four or five pizzas.
She can eat her own weight in fried mayonnaise and butter sandwiches.
Open heart surgery is whats next.
Other than the four or five adults commenting, the rest are kids playing Keyboard Commando. POLICEMAN is really a COP (Child On PC), and someone should tell his mommy. Then again, she's probably not around as he clearly has "mommy issues". Only a self taught pig would make such statements about a woman. Ok, boys get back to your gaming forums and go tweet yourselves.
I think his mom is probably in the kitchen eating some chicken friend ranch dressing.
i c u up there 8:22 pm -im goin 2 be kool n shut it 4 now. would hate 4 u 2 cook urself w/boilin oil n then turn around n drink acid like u said u would. want 2 or not..we'll hv that convo thou sum day. w/that being said...alecia from the regulars (the _ team) i heard is bigger n fatter than this b!***. she said she so loves 2 eat. eh watch out bro she might eat u 2. the gc menu is what she eats 4 a sitting
Interesting. A talking horse speaks ebonics, of course...
@Sokman,I have a limo you can use heck you can have it.You just have to share the ride.
I'd hit it for a limo ride
As a professional, I must warn you all to never try and reason with fat chicks, it is a losing battle.
Good advice. Nor try to wrestle them; they have a weight advantage...
Yes but they tire quickly, and have to stop for snacks.
calm down fatso
At least Melissa can lose weight if she chooses to; as it is now she is a beautiful woman inside and out. Jealousy is an ugly disease and from what we see here, there is an infestation. Melissa can lose weight, what can you do, you hating, jealous people? You are adults, so it is obvious, your behavior will never change. The wonderful thing about this whole thing is that Melissa is counting her millions and laughing at all you haters, all the way to the bank!!!!!! Congratulations Melissa, keep on being the person you are, look where it has gotten you!
yes, there is a beautiful woman inside her...maybe 2 or 3
She is a Water Buffalo.
To all you haters, Do you know why you are a bully? You are so jealous, because you wish it was you!
Only sissys use the term bully and if we meet you will learn the what being a sissy and bullying are all about. Now LOSE SOME WEIGHT, FATTY.
"You are so jealous, because you wish it was you!"
Yeah, I wish I was a 450 pound marginally talented actress on a bad TV sitcom. I am totally jealous of her massive thighs, overstressed heart, and her complete inability to find her own genitals.
@GCAM very specific aren't you?Maybe that's what you had for lunch hhhmm?
If she ever becomes disabled she will forego the "Rascal" for a dump truck.
My personal opinion is people should stop focusing on this woman's weight and start celebrating her incredible talent. She is hilarious and is an incredible writer. I think she will go on to have a huge outlasting career.
What is next???? A heart attack.
I bet she is very heavy-handed, loves to throw her weight around and comes down really hard on her co-workers.
I LOVE her as well- I "used" to be overweight... I dont care either way if people are big or not I just think it shouldnt be "ok" to be that unhealthy- deep down no one wants to be like that :( sad really... but that famous or un famous people .... Good job girl ! love your new show you deserve that award !!
She will eat you out of house and home.
Also, I know that you don't love yourself because you have to love yourself before you can love others. You clearly hate people so I know you don't love yourself. You should get help for that or no one will love you back either. I'm just sayin...
Murp, congrats honey, today you figured out what trolling is. I'm just sayin'.
@Policeman,bet when you look down you can't see your tiny d**k.
For breakfast I bet she consumes...
4 Egg McMuffins
A stack of pancakes
1 stick of butter
3 servings on fried potatoes
A belgian waffle
2 Papa Johns pizzas
1 Diet Coke.
There's nothing wrong with being overweight or not skipping the cheesecake. It's just sad that there's so many bullies out there that have to be bullies in order to make themselves feel better. What is it about yourself that you can't stand that makes you have to be a bully in order to feel better?
Maybe you're really cool and nice and you're just saying this to get a rise out of people. Who knows? Either way, it's still childish and rude.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Melissa!!! I loved her on Gilmore Girls and I love her on Mike and Molly!! I am sick to death of hearing people talk S**T about her because she is a big Girl!! Soooo EFFIN WHAT! She is Hilarious and Talented!! Way to Go MELISSA!! continue to be YOU and Never ever listen to the Haters !!!
I tell ya whats next. A gallon of choco-milk and 3 boxes of Dunkin Munchkins. RUN LITTLE MUNCHKINS, RUUNNN!!!
GET OVER YOURSELF!! JERK
Sorry about your small penis...
She is a very average actress in a very average series. This was a mercy emmy.
Just another fat pig with every excuse in the book for why she is a fat pig. Here PIGGY PIGGY PIGGY come feed from the slop bucket ya fat piggy.
Why would she eat at your "rat infested" dining establishment?
At one time I was a GM for Golden Corral and I wonder if you have met the CEO of the company? He is about 6.4 and 300+lbs. So a big fat man is your boss who would put you in your place in 2 sec. so shut your pie hole.
Policemen do not apologize.
She thinks it's one of those foil covered chocolates.
Totally disagree did you know that she ad-libs most of her lines? Did you know that in the movie Bridesmaids she ad-libbed most of her lines and they kept them all in because it was funnier than what the writers wrote for her.
Yeah? Who cares. Here are the ad-libs she hears most often.
"Here PIGGY PIGGY PIGGY, slop time"
"Good Lord, that woman is as round as a pregnant water buffalo"
"Wow, look at the hippo graze"
"That woman is one fat turdLumpkin"
"Bend over honey so we can go Hoggin"
how much do you weigh miss perfect
