Updated Update… Maya Rudolph Unquits!
Huh? I know… I’m confused too. First, there were reports that Maya Rudolph would definitely continue on Saturday Night Live this season. Then a follow up report that she would not be on the show was announced shortly thereafter. Now TVGuide.com is saying that she is back on the show. Phew. Perhaps she heard my screams of “Nooooooo” when I heard that she quit? Although I think she’s underused on some episodes of SNL, she is still pretty darn funny. Rarely a week goes by when I’m not saying “Bobby Brown” in her signature Whitney Houston way (if you’ve never seen her do this, then you have no idea what I’m talking about—trust me, it’s funny). So, she’s back. And with the season premiere set for this Saturday, how does that all work? Will she be majorly cut from the sketches since she just re-signed and they are preparing this week? It’ll be interesting to see how it all goes down, but I definitely don’t think the show can afford to lose a female cast member at this point. Rudolph told TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello, “It was an agonizing decision, but ultimately, I feel I made the best choice both as a mother and as an actress. I couldn’t be happier to be returning to SNL.” And neither could I. Glad to have you back, Maya!
