“Saturday Night Live” Opens With A Rape Joke

I have a sense of humor. I swear to God, I do. But, damn it, rape jokes are never funny.

Even though the opening skit of this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” starred the only two black men in the cast as inmates at Rikers Island meeting accused sexual predator Dominique Strauss-Kahn (played by Taran Killiam), I was willing to go with it. Slightly racist casting there, but who knows, maybe they were the two cast members most enthusiastic about the material? Anyway, the skit was pretty funny: Keenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah played two guys locked in a cell bickering about the International Monetary Fund. I giggled a little, because it was silly. And then, at the end of the skit, Keenan says, “We’re going to rape you now.”

Miss Bossypants Herself To Host “SNL” This Weekend

Woo-hoo! Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” this weekend. She will be hosting while Ellie Goulding, aka the chickadee who played the royal wedding, does the musical guest thing. “SNL” promos are never quite as funny as I want them to be, but still—just had to share these because we love Tina that much.

Today’s Lady News: Tina Fey & Jane Curtain Talk Sexism At “Saturday Night Live”

  • Oprah Winfrey invited the lovely Tina Fey, Jane Curtain, Tracy Morgan, Dana Carvey and Chevy Chase as guests for a show about “Saturday Night Live.” It turns out that John Belushi was a sexist jerk, his former co-star Jane Curtain revealed. “[Belushi] said, ‘Women are just fundamentally not funny,’” Curtain recalled. “He felt as though it was his duty to sabotage pieces that were written by women.” Wow, I never thought an episode of “Oprah” would make me feel stabby.

Bristol Palin Was This Close To Being Tina Fey’s Baby Sitter

“I can’t imagine Bristol would have been too psyched to [babysit] anyway; it was her 18th birthday, she was in New York City, and I had made a vicious joke about her a week earlier. But I appreciated the mom-ness of Mrs. Palin’s offer … I thanked her, saying Alice was too little to stay for the show.”

Tina Fey shares in her new book, Bossypants, that when Sarah Palin appeared on “SNL” in 2008, she offered up daughter Bristol Palin to babysit for Tina’s daughter, Alice, on set. This was, err, while Tina was doing her famous impersonation of her. The fact that she would still offer that is almost enough to make me like Sarah Palin. For a minute, anyway.

Miley Cyrus Spoofs Justin Bieber On “Saturday Night Live”


Miley Cyrus hosting “Saturday Night Live” could have been a hot, steaming pile of Disney dog doo … but it turns out the girl is pretty funny! Not only did she sing about her little bong incident during her opening monologue, but the girl gets mad props for making fun of herself in Vanessa Bayer‘s skit, “The Miley Cyrus Show.” I don’t think I could listen to someone mocking me and my dad to my face for five minutes straight. Miley did a kickass job channeling Justin Bieber‘s swagger, too.

And now I’m going to go wash my brain out with soap because I just said, like, six nice things about Hannah Montana. [NBC] Keep reading »
