It’s not often that you see funny pregnant ladies on TV. The SnL ladies have boasted a few bumps over the years, but most actresses have to conceal their pregnancies to stay in character. Not so with Samantha Bee. Her belly has been all over The Daily Show and I love it. They’ve made jokes about it on the show and written her kids into sketches. It’s good to see celebreties schlepping through those final months of pregnancy like the rest of us.
And with her 3rd baby on the way and a husband (Jason Jones) who is also on The Daily Show, they may just overthrow Jon Stewart and turn the DS into a reality show about their family life. But until then, fans can get some juicy details of Samantha Bee’s life in her new autobiography, I Know I Am, But What Are You.
Here’s an exerpt from the book about Samantha and her dad’s musical differences:
“He always liked to remind me that I went through a very serious love affair with the music of the Smiths and that he thought it was terrible and depressing. I liked to remind him that Billy Joel was a much more interesting songwriter when he was suffering from depression and doing things like drinking furniture polish, not making songs like â€œUptown Girl,â€ which was, coincidentally, my fatherâ€™s favorite.” – Samantha Bee
