First Betty White, now Gabourey Sidibe? It's like "Saturday Night Live" is not only trying to not suck but, like, actually be good. The Oscar nominee is signed on to host an upcoming episode of "SNL," according to E! News. There's no word on exactly when she will hit the air -- or whether she'll get to mock all the ridiculous diet endorsement deals that have been thrown her way or make more awesomely inappropriate comments about Hollywood's sexiest leading men -- but something tells me it will be must-see TV.
For the time being, I'm going to sit back, relax and take delight in the fact that this news is sure to reach a certain shock jock who recently commented on her supposedly diminishing career prospects. As reporter Marc Malkin puts it: "Dear Howard Stern, Gabourey Sidibe is doing just fine, thank you very much!"
