Blind Item #5

The return last night would never have been possible during the reign of this actress/writer/producer who starred on the same show forever. She made/makes you choose sides as to whether you were against the actor or with the actor. If you were/are with him, you were/are shunned by her.

A d Sandler \SNL?

MDAnderson said...

Adam Sandler return to SNL?

cheesegrater15 said...

Wow, who knew Tina Fey was such a bitch.

Flashy Vic said...

So what's the backstory there then?

HushHush said...

What was the reason for the bad blood between Sandler, and Fey?

Tricia13 said...

I believe she had her nose out of joint over unequal pay and Sandler getting more skits on and being more liked

Tricia13 said...

Because he’s well-way more likeable maybe🤷‍♀️

Troy Dyer said...

Adam Sandler was on SNL from 1990-1995 and Tina didn’t come in until 1997 so there was no overlap.

I know that Tina has said before that before she started at SNL it was all drugs backstage, but when she got there they replaced the drugs with food. Maybe after firing Sandler and Farley SNL got rid of the drugs?

MDAnderson said...

Don’t like Tina but Sandler’s movies were usually with his male buddies and used male writers.

JT0130 said...

During Sandler's time is was known that the female comedians and staff were treated like shit. I am not sure if he was the main reason for this but most of the blame should fall on Lorne, right? I know Fey has mentioned in interviews how she had to break a lot of misogynistic and sexist thinking when she was hired as a writer on to SNL but was Sandler the main source of those bad habits?

Tricia13 said...

@MD yes-she thinks they are misogynistic. , and I know pay was an issue for her. That said-my bad I thought they overlapped. But I know she felt she deserved the same credit they got

Jne said...

Snl is so lame.... why did he go back? He must be looking for a comeback himself. At least he’s sorta likeable unlike fey.

It's a little from column A and a little from column B. Sandler is a massive prick. There were a lot of women who refused to work with him at SNL and not just women. Julia Sweeney talked about him a bit after she left.

Tina Fey on the other hand is also a massive prick. She is an elitist who believes she is above everyone else. There are countless stories about this woman treating people terribly because of the job they have or because of the school they went to.

If we're being honest, they're probably just too much alike.

missann said...

Tina Fey. Adam Sandler was never funny and there's nothing likable about him.

Gator said...

Didn't someone on this site meet Fey and say she was as cold as ice?

MDAnderson said...

Completely agree Tricia . Tina is a bitch that treated her friend Rachel Dratch horribly, but Sandler is definitely a part of the boys only club. And don’t act like Sandler wouldn’t do the same if he was in position to do so. Happy cinco de Mayo and happy pre Met ball gala to Cdaners!! Enty spies please bring your A++++ game!!

Rosie riveter said...

Tina Fey makes me laugh, Adam Sandler makes me feel extreme second person shame for the one (bad) character he can play. It's all the same,every bad movie.
I would have serious issue with not getting paid as much too

Sd Auntie said...

I like Adam. And Tina. Glad i font have to work with them though. SNL is funny as hell. Awesome cast and great writing

B626 said...

Sandler made his movies without Loren Michaels having his fingers in the $$$ pie.
That’s a no-no
That’s where the lines are drawn

kiki71 said...

I am more forgiving of Tina Fey being a jerk though. Not that anyone should be but Sandler was just a guy being an elitist dick probably treating women like crap. Tina inherited a boys club and a mess and had to swiftly change things or get it under control. She may have turned INTO a bitch with what she had to face. Sandler as part of the boys club was just a d-bag. Fey was probably an Alpha female navigating a patriarchal show and structure trying to do her job.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

So what women were actor/writer/producer during Sandler's time on the show?
I'm thinking Julia Sweeney or Molly Shannon.

Countervail said...

Was assigned as her talent wrangler at a charity event once. She was the coldest person I ever had to work with, didn't want to be told anything, and when something unexpected happened later in the evening, made it seem like I was not being responsible when she waved me away earlier in the evening.

VikingSong said...

Sandler is the result of not having a Mother.

Wendy said...

I heard it was because Adam was doing other projects without Lorne and made his movies without giving Lorne any pieces of it....but it's probably a combination of a lot of different things.

Large Marge said...

Last night's SNL was not good at all. Opening with Family Feud? All those ex-SNLer cameos? The lame song at the end? The riciulous film? El stinko.

Vita said...

Definitely sounds like Adam and Tina, and I think a lot of the speculation here sounds very plausible. I would love to know more.

I have no clue at all, but often a lot of the cast overlap at Groundlings, Improv Olympic, etc. Also, sometimes cast and writers audition more than once (I think?) Before being hired. Perhaps bad blood could exist dating to even pre-SNL (for her, anyway)?

Countervail-- loved hearing the firsthand scoop! Thanks for sharing!

Unknown said...

Tina is a unt with a capital C. She started taking shots at him some years back for no apparent reason.

Unknown said...

It's also very wellknown on the SNL set, because many of the alumni have talked about it, that it is largely up to the performers how much airtime they get. Which means writing your own material and coming up with your own hopefully recurring characters.

Adam's comedy albums are hilarious. I wish he'd do more.

GentleBreeze said...

Sounds like dog eat dog, and Lorne enables destructive creative behavior.
When SNL first came on in the '70s, we ceased partying around town and found a TV to watch on Saturday night. It was different and funny.

This and That said...

There have been a lot of blinds about this. I was definitely surprised.

Jameswinct said...

Feys a democrat & Sandler's a staunch republican, oil & water.

Unknown said...

Notice many of his films (can't bear to see them all because they) include very schoolyard bully scenes masquerading as comedy

Unknown said...

She's a smart, prolific and highly creative female. In other words, what some people call a bitch.

Unknown said...

Being the only adult in the room is usually denounced as being a bitch by those who want to keep being poster boys for developmental atrophy.

shakey said...

Adam has a new standup show to promote.

Had a great laugh at the Sandler Family Reunion skit. That really made me laugh.

Do Tell said...

Tina Fey has a bitch reputation because of bitchy behavior and asshole things she has done to people. So this antiquated Gloria Steinem response of "well, she's smart and accomplished so of course she gets called a bitch" doesn't fly in this case.

Jennacheryl said...

I miss the funny days of SNL.

HouellebecqGurl said...

No, they call her that because she acts like a bitch.
There are tons of smart, powerful women who don't get called bitches, because they don't act like bitches.
