On the premiere episode of the 39th season of “Saturday Night Live” hosted by Tina Fey, the popular HBO series “Girls” was spoofed with Tina portraying a new character, an Albanian named Blerta.
The Sept. 28, 2013 spoof was seen by "Girls" creator and star, Lena Dunham, who tweeted she was honored by the humorous tribute.
Her friend, and “Mindy Project” star Mindy Kaling took a photo of Lena as she watched the skit and tweeted, “Watching @lenadunham enjoy Blerta on #snl’s #girls in my living room.”
In the spoof Tina plays Blerta, a new "girl" from Albania who mocks Shoshanna’s hairstyle, is stymied by Marnie and her relationship problems, and questions Hannah’s issues with Adam, according to US magazine.
In the end, Lena, took to her Twitter page, writing, “The SNL parody of Girls was a true honor,” later adding, “Very excited about the current lineup of SNL ladies. They are funny like whoa.”
