Long Live The Mean Queen

Okay, Lisa Lampanelli, we've checked out your pretty new hair and glam frocks on Comedy Central roasts and your HBO Long Live the Queen special. We're massively stoked about your upcoming memoir, Chocolate, Please! And we're happy you've found love, even if it's with a fat Italian club owner from Long Island. But please, please, please, leave our self-esteem in tatters, as usual, after your live set on Saturday, August 15. Don't even consider refraining from your reliable trashing of the blacks, the gays, the Jews, the -- oh, crap, you know what we're getting at.
