Before She Was a Bridesmaid, She Was a Chef: Melissa McCarthy

Marion Ross, Melissa McCarthy & Edward Hermann on “Gilmore Girls” (2000-2007)

Most of my high school years were spent watching Rory, Lorelei & Sookie craft witty arguments from complex language. I wanted to live in Stars Hollow. I wanted to stay at the Dragonfly Inn. I wanted to watch Kirk have one of his meltdowns, and I wanted to eat Sookie’s food. I think that Melissa McCarthy deserved an Emmy for Gilmore Girls more than her win for Mike & Molly. Although, I thought that her Emmy win was an all-encompassing win for Bridesmaids, Gilmore Girls, and Mike & Molly. A career win, if you will. She’s a versatile actress who really showed her range on Gilmore Girls I really hope we get to see more of it in the future. Here are some of Sookie’s funniest moments:
