SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE PRODUCER LORNE MICHAELS FINALLY WISED UP

lakendra_tookes_les#17Ecut

Lorne Michaels finally came to his senses and acknowledged that Saturday Night Live had a glaring shortage of diversity – particularly women of color. (He was reminded very publicly, and wisely chose to act upon it.) After secret auditions he hired Sasheer Zamata as a new cast member, but there’s a bonus. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Michaels apparently found more talent than he expected among minority women, and he added TWO black female writers to the staff! (LaKendra Tookes and Leslie Jones, above) Now THAT’S a step in the right direction.

    Yippie, Now we can have a even more unfunny ghettoized version of SNL. Here’s a novel idea, how bout hiring FUNNY people without regard to their color?

    Bingo! But that won’t work with the pc crowd. They want a multi color and preferably lesbos and trannys and gay group!

    The only time SNL is funny is when Timberlake and Fallon show up.

    the fat black guy has been on SNL since forever and he is not funny and is very annoying.They should hire comedians based upon their talent not their race.

    To repeat: Bingo! But that won’t work with the pc crowd. They want a multi color and preferably lesbos and trannys and gay group!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
