Amy Poehler: ‘Sleep Is Just A Concept’

original (1)

Funnylady Amy Poehler covers ELLE magazine’s fourth annual Women in TV Issue alongside Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling and Allison Williams. In the interview, Amy opens up about the rigors of motherhood to young sons Archie, 5, and Abel, 3, and her shift into directing-writing-producing.

On waking up early with her boys: “Now that I have kids, I’m up at 5:30AM no matter what. Sleep at this point is just a concept, something I’m looking forward to investigating in the future. 

On the conflict of being a comedienne and a grown-up: “I’d like to say that I maintain that same sense of play and creativity and spontaneity – of being able to get into a room with people and say, ‘Let’s waste some time.’ When you’re a creative person, even when you’re in a position of power, you still have to be able to straddle both worlds.”

On why she’s heading into directing, production and writing: “I like to do things that challenge me and make me nervous. You learn early as an actor that creating your own material is the only way to have any control. Hollywood is like a bad boyfriend. You can’t stand around and wait to be asked to dance.”

Check out the cute pics of Amy and her boys getting groceries at Bristol Farms in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Sunday (January 5).

Drew Barrymore Shops with Her Growing Baby Bump

11/28/2013 at 11:45 AM EST

Drew Barrymore has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, including her growing baby bump!

The actress and makeup magnate, 38, was spotted Wednesday wearing a loose-fitting tee and jeans during a pre-Thanksgiving shopping trip to Bristol Farms in Los Angeles.

Also in view was Barrymore’s diamond sparkler from husband Will Kopelman, who she married last year.

The pair are already parents to 14-month-old Olive, and Barrymore said she was thrilled to discover she was pregnant again.

“When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it’s incredible,” she said. “[I’m feeling] incredible, that ‘Here we go again’ feeling. And blessed. Blessed!”

“Will is just thrilled – we both are – [because] we just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling,” she says. “In some ways, it’s really for her. So congratulations, Olive!”

Levi Johnston Files Petition for Custody of Son with Bristol Palin

The father of Bristol Palin’s son is seeking at least equal custody.

Levi Johnston filed a petition for custody last month saying he wants 4-year-old Tripp to be in his mother’s and father’s lives equally.

The couple had agreed in 2010 that Palin would have primary physical custody and the two would share legal custody, according to Thomas Van Flein, Palin’s attorney at that time. Johnston was given visitation and had agreed to pay child support.

Palin’s current attorney, John Tiemessen, said that as of Oct. 15, the Child Support Services Division reported that Johnston owed about $66,000 in back support.

Palin and Johnston were thrust into the national spotlight as expectant, unwed teenagers in 2008, when Palin’s mother, Sarah Palin, was tapped as the Republican vice presidential candidate.

Johnston and Bristol Palin had an on-off relationship before splitting for good. He has since married and has a daughter.

Bristol Palin has appeared in several reality series, including one for Lifetime that documented her life as a single mom.

The Top Chef season 4 winner, Stephanie Izard, wed craft-beer consultant Gary Valentine on Sunday in Chicago and, as expected, the menu was something to talk about.

“I was blown away by the food at our wedding! We had such amazing friends put together an incredible menu that everyone loved,” the bride, 36, tellsPEOPLE.

The reception at the Bridgeport Art Center featured a “phenomenal pasta course” made by Chris Pandel, the chef of Chicago’s The Bristol and Balena. Guests, including Top Chef season one finalist Lee Ann Wong, had a choice of cavatelli, smoked eggplant and heirloom tomatoes or a rigatoni dish with pork ragu.

  For the main course, executive chef of GT Fish & Oyster, Giuseppe Tentori, prepared a family-style spread of red wine braised beef short ribs, roasted black cod with grilled fennel and heirloom tomato sauce. Guests also enjoyed rosemary potato gratin, grilled broccoli with bacon vinaigrette, roasted golden beets with Manchego, balsamic vinegar pearls and toasted hazelnuts. And it doesn’t stop there! A kale, radish and hearts of palm salad in a sherry vinaigrette was also served.

  “Everyone raved about it,” says the first female winner of the Bravo hit show and chef at two successful Chicago restaurants, Girl & the Goat and Little Goat.

  To help celebrate the couple’s big day, Izard’s pastry chef at Girl & the Goat, Mathew Rice, created the wedding cake. One layer was strawberry Nesquick and chocolate marble with a bacon buttercream frosting, while the other contained Cheez-It cake with chocolate ganache, peanut butter and chocolate-covered Cheez-Its.

  In addition to the main attraction, Izard Tweeted out a second dessert. The groomsman cake was designed as a tiny cask to match Valentine’s specialty.

  And to burn off some of the event’s delectable meal, the bride and groom took to the dance floor. “We were lucky to have not only great food but a night of music that got everyone dancing,” she says.
