What kind of a monster gets advice from Tina Fey and doesn’t take it?

An Alison Williams monster, apparently, but it’s not her fault — it’s all because of her new job. The “Girls” star was at a party Sunday night where a Page Six spy overheard her talking about her first job as Fey’s assistant. Fey also spoke at Williams’ high school graduation, and apparently the “30 Rock” comedian had some very specific advice for her protegees: Don’t smoke, and wear a bra.

Nothing wrong with that! But Williams is unable to follow it, because the characters on “Girls” are not the sort to follow good advice. “Now I work on ‘Girls,’ where wardrobe doesn’t even let you wear a bra! You can’t find one anywhere on set,” Wiliams was overheard saying at the Soho House party.

Well, at least she doesn’t smoke. But now that I’ve said that, her arc next season will probably be all about her character getting super into cigars.
