5 Things About ‘Stifler’s Mom’ Jennifer Coolidge

Happy 51st birthday to Jennifer Coolidge. The actress with impeccable comedic timing has starred in dozens of films and numerous TV shows, but for fans of a certain age, she’ll always be Stifler’s mom (American Pie). Here are six things you didn’t know about Stifler’s boozy mom.

1. She was in “Seinfeld.”
Remember the episode in which Jerry dated the masseuse who refused to give him a massage? That was Ms. Coolidge. In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Coolidge said, “The minute I was on that show, I was able to support myself just acting. It opened so many doors.”

2. She did live comedy.
Before making it big as a film and TV star, Coolidge worked with the Groundlings improv group. Castmates included future “Saturday Night Live” stars Will Ferrell and Chris Katan.

3. She rocks at standup comedy.
“Standup is just dirtier, a far more risqué kind of thing…. I talk about the strange stuff guys say when they’re trying to get you to sleep with them, I talk about sex, being single again, really weird Hollywood auditions. I think people will be really interested in it and laugh.”

4. She was almost a “desperate housewife.”
Coolidge came this close to nabbing the role of Lynette Scavo on “Desperate Housewives.” The job eventually went to Felicity Huffman.

5. After playing Stifler’s mom, life began to imitate art.

In an interview with USA Today, Coolidge remarked, “…As a single woman, I reap the benefits of being Stifler’s mom.” The character, who tends to go for younger guys, apparently inspires young guys to approach Coolidge. “Never anyone close to my age. Always young guys.”

Ann Curry Cries During Farewell Speech On ‘Today’

After more than a week of furious speculation about her future, Ann Curry broke down in tears on Thursday as she told viewers she would be leaving the “Today” show after a little more than a year as co-host.

“I am so grateful to all of you,” Curry said at the end of the show’s second hour. “You are the real ‘Today’ show family… I have loved you,” Curry, seated on a couch flanked by her “Today” colleagues, continued. “And I have wanted to give you the world. And I still do.”

Curry—who will remain at NBC News as a correspondent and anchor-at-large—told USA Today that it was not her idea to leave the show, which recently lost its lead in the morning-show ratings war with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” It was NBC’s. After her emotional speech, co-host Matt Lauer consoled her: ”You have the biggest heart in the business,” Lauer said. “The way you care about people comes through. You put that on display every single day for almost 20 years. Most importantly, you’ve made us better, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Curry’s emotional on-air exit was expected. Curry, who said flatly she was not given enough time to work out the kinks at “Today” added: “I know I am not to blame for the ratings worries. And my bosses have said to me there are many factors involved. There is no doubt that the rating wars have become meaner and less focused on our responsibilities as journalists.”

Curry’s abrupt exit is being compared to the way NBC handled Conan O’Brien’s elevation to “Tonight Show” host, only to pull the plug on Coco just five months into the experiment.

What will you miss about Ann Curry on Today? Was NBC’s decision to drop Curry from the show a wise one?
