“Girls” Gets Tina Fey as a New Roommate

by Fatimah Hameed

Hannah Horvath and her friends have it rough—they’re college-educated, financially supported, and so, so white (maybe not for long).  And in a Saturday Night Live sketch that aired during this weekend’s season premiere, the Girls girls have a new roommate with whom to compete in their weekly misery poker: Blerta.

Tina Fey plays Blerta, a poor Albanian refugee with OCD (Old Cow Disease) who puts Hannah’s problems into perspective—“Honestly, your life is, like, so much more interesting than mine. It’s just not fair!” Hannah, we’re all weeping with you.
