The bitches out there that still watch “Saturday Night Live” (me included, sometimes) will be saddened to learn that Amy Poehler is leaving the show after the election in November. Amy, who is knocked up with her first kid, tells Men’s Vogue (via UsWeekly) that after maternity leave, she will start working on NBC’s “Office” spin-off.
Amy said, “It’s gonna be really hard — Boyz II Men hard — to say goodbye to yesterday. SNL was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down.”
Ugh. Why did she have to mention that song? Now it’s going to crawl inside my one good brain and stay there all day. At least it will have some company since the story about the woman mistaking a skunk for a cat (see below) is also chilling out up there.
Anyway, with Amy leaving, that leaves the show with just two chicks: Kristen Wiig and Casey Wilson.
Why are all the SNL chicks leaving? And where do they go? Maya Rudolph and Cheri Oteri haven’t done anything major since SNL. Bring them back! And while they’re at it, they should bring back Laraine Newman and Jan Hooks too.
