Jennifer Lopez Wins Most Awkwardly Timed “SNL” Gig Award


Am I alone in thinking it’s hilarious that the same week she’s dropped by her label, Jennifer Lopez is the host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live”? No? Thought so. Keep reading »

Betty White May Be Hosting “SNL” After All — Just Not On Her Own

Ask — nay, demand — and Lorne Michaels will listen, sort of. For the last month or so, fans of Betty White have been clamoring for the “Golden Girl” to host “Saturday Night Live,” and according to Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly, producer Lorne Michaels is game. However, he’s apparently not sure that White, who is 88 years old, will be able to carry the show on her own, so he’s supposedly assembling a roster of funny ladies to host together. Molly Shannon is on board, and Michaels is going after “SNL” alum like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as well. The idea of all these women on “Saturday Night Live” totally excites me, but I totally think White could pull off the hosting gig on her own. I mean, would Michaels not allow Clint Eastwood — who is turning 80 this year — to host on his own? Betty White, while up there in years, is a professional, and a hilarious one at that — I say she should get the coveted hosting gig all for herself, unless she feels like sharing.

Today’s Lady News: Please, Tina Fey, Do Sarah Palin When You Host “SNL” In April!

  • Tina Fey is guest hosting “Saturday Night Live” in April, which probably means another Sarah Palin impersonation! “It’s inevitable that we’ll try it, at least,” Fey told the AP. “We’ll see if it makes it to air.” Now, if they could just get Amy Poehler back to do Hillary Clinton. [AP]
  • Happy 88th birthday, Helen Gurley Brown, the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan! Brown is also the author of the bestselling book Sex and the Single Girl, an essential piece of literature in the ’60s and ’70s sexual revolution. [Wikipedia]
  • London’s Globe Theater has commissioned its first play written by a woman, “Bedlam” by Nell Leyshon. The Globe, where William Shakespeare staged his plays, was closed from 1642 until 1997. Not until now has a female playwright had her work performed there.

This Could Be One Of The Funniest Episodes Of “SNL” Ever

I could just look at Zach Galifianakis’ face and laugh uproariously, but his work in “The Hangover” (amongst other films) and his “interview” series, “Between Two Ferns,” are pretty hysterical too. [Twitter] Keep reading »

Jon Hamm Does Sexy Sax Man Sergio & Senator Scott Brown On SNL


Jon Hamm hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend — for no real reason other than his undeniable hotness, seeing as he doesn’t have a movie to promote and “Mad Men” is on hiatus — and the results were delightfully … weird. In the digital short, above, Hamm plays a sexy saxophonist named Sergio who emerges during the most inopportune moments after a curse is placed on Andy Samberg’s character. For the record, Jon Hamm Covered In Birth Goop is still as sexy as Jon Hamm NOT Covered In Birth Goop. Keep reading »

Alicia Keys Makes A Booty Call


I missed the new episode of “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, but caught the latest digital short on Hulu. It’s hilariously … odd? Keep reading »

Julian Casablancas Performs “SNL” Christmas Song


One of my favorite albums of the year is the Julian Casablancas solo record Phrazes for the Young — if you’re a fan of The Strokes, especially their first record, and you love Julian’s voice as much as I do, buy this album, like, now. One of the bonus tracks on the album if you download it off of iTunes is “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” which originally was a skit on “Saturday Night Live” featuring Horatio Sanz, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Kattan, and Tracy Morgan. Last night, Casablancas performed on Jimmy Fallon’s show, and the host, as well as Sanz, came on stage to assist him as he sang the holiday tune. Check it out above and remind yourself of the original, after the jump… Keep reading »

James Franco French Kisses A Dude On “SNL”


If you watched James Franco hosting “SNL” this weekend, then you might have noticed a little bit of a theme … homosexuality. Almost every skit contained some sort of gay reference. Hmmm … let’s see: He played Latin singing star Rico Garlanda, danced in footsie pajamas, portrayed James Dean exchanging secret Santa gifts with Liberace and Vincent Price, and finally engaged in multiple, incestuous man-on-man kisses (with tongue). Interesting. He said in his opening monologue that every move in his career is calculated. What shall we, your adoring audience, take this to mean, Mr. Franco? Is pretending to be gay part of your “performance art”? Or could this just be a ploy to perpetuate rumors that you’re gay and confuse your fans? Stay tuned to the Franco gallery for the next clue.

We’re About To Get A Whole Lot More Of Taylor Lautner

Normally, this is a man’s problem. Some pretty young thing, a starlet of the day, Brooke Shields, the Olsen Twins, or Miley Cyrus in a blanket is splashed everywhere, exposed to the full media gaze — gorgeous, nearly naked, and jail-bait. Now, it’s mine. Keep reading »

Does “SNL” Think Domestic Violence Against Tiger Woods Is Funny?


I had uncomfortable feelings about this “Saturday Night Live” skit where Kenan Thompson and Blake Lively make fun of Elin Nordegren allegedly beating up Tiger Woods. Ever since the Woods/Nordegren shiz-nit went down over Thanksgiving, I’ve been noodling a blog post about how I’ve heard and read nothing condemning Nordegren’s what-sounds-a-lot-like domestic violence against her husband and the fact that he seems to be covering for her.
