“It’s fun, because we don’t really get to jack our business up and out,” Fey said of a scene in which their characters try on party dresses. “I don’t live like Sofia Vergara.”

The actress also told Ellen about two sisters in her own life: her daughters. Check out the video to hear Fey’s thoughts on whether the youngest member of the family deserves a spot on the naughty list.
