As Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons, Marcia Wallace may be the only 4th-grade teacher to have the same student for 24 years. Before that, she was beloved as Carol Kester, the lovelorn, wisecracking secretary on The Bob Newhart Show.

Marcia Wallace, the feisty redhead who starred as receptionist Carol Kester on “The Bob Newhart Show” and voiced teacher Edna Krabappel on “The Simpsons,” died Friday. She would have turned 71 on Nov. 1.
TMZ reported the actress died at her home in Los Angeles but other details remained unclear.
Wallace won an Emmy for outstanding voiceover performance on “The Simpsons” in 1992.
Born in Creston, Iowa, she moved to New York after graduating college and worked in off-Broadway productions. The role of the receptionist on “The Bob Newhart Show” was written specifically for her after she had appeared numerous times on “The Merv Griffin Show.”

So Kim Kardashian got engaged this week, which ignited an epidemic of déjà vu across the globe. Our DVD pick (a throwback to 1989) will also take you back. But first, here's what's brand spanking new at the theater:
On the Big Screen: "The Counselor"
Ok...fine. That's not true at all. But with such an all-star cast, does it even matter what the movie's about? In reality, Michael Fassbender plays a corrupt lawyer (aka "the counselor") who signs on for a lil' freelance drug trafficking with Javier Bardem's character, Reiner. And by "lil'" we mean moving a truckload of cocaine from Colombia to Chicago.
As you can imagine, international drug trafficking schemes amongst friends never end well. »

Blake Lively's special day had a little '80s flashback, thanks to her big sis Robyn. The details from the actress' super-secret wedding to Ryan Reynolds over a year ago are still coming out to this day, and the latest little tidbit that was revealed from their ceremony held at Boone Hill Plantation in Mount Pleasant, S.C., was a doozy! Apparently, Lively's older sister Robyn decided to relive her role in the 1989 teen comedy-fantasy Teen Witch and performed the choreographed dance from the end of the flick at the event. "My younger sister and younger brother [Eric Lively] are huge Teen Witch fans," Robyn recently said on the Pop My Culture podcast. "So for my younger sister's »
Back in 1989, Blake Lively's half-sister Robyn Lively starred in "Teen Witch," a movie that has one of the best (and most awkward) rap scenes ever.The movie went on to become a bit of a cult classic, thanks in large part to Mandy Ingber's incredibly embarrassing/awesome delivery of the song "Top That."And now, 24 years later, she's re-dong it for Glamour magazine.Check out the hilarious video above. For those of you who haven't seen the movie, Ingner's Polly tries to impress her too-cool-for-school crush by challenging him to a rap battle. Here's the original below:Ingber went on to add "The Relic" and "Exit to Eden" to her acting resume before becoming a celebrity yoga instructor, with clients like Jennifer Aniston. Read more »

Long before she was helping Jennifer Aniston perfect her downward-facing-dog, celebrity yoga teacher and fitness expert Mandy Ingber was spittin' a rhyme in the 1989 classic Teen Witch, much to the delight of slumber party goers everywhere. The lyrics seem to be lodged in Ingber's long term memory, since she easily reenacts the rap from what she jokes is her "sordid past" during an interview for Glamour magazine. If you didn't memorize every scene of Teen Witch, Ingber's adorably nerdy character Polly drops her shyness and starts a rap battle with her crush Rhet after being put under a spell by the original teenage witch, »
