Gabourey Sidibe Will Host SNL

Gabourey Sidibe

Gabourey Sidibe will be hosting SNL in the coming week ( not this week though). I have yet to see “Precious”, but I heard that it is very rough to watch! I’m still going to watch it though.

According to E!,

Ms. Sidibe is going to be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live! “It literally just happened,” my source said of the deal.

No word on an exact date yet. Jennifer Lopez hosts this Saturday, followed by Tina Fey and Ryan Phillippe. And as most of us already know, Betty White gets the honors on May 8.

SNL is not—we repeat, not—the only gig Sidibe has scored since her feature film debut. She has a recurring role on Showtime’s upcoming The Big C, about a teacher (Laura Linney) living with cancer. Sidibe plays one of her sassy students. The series, which is set to premiere in August, also costars Oliver Platt.

Sidibe also made a hilarious post-Oscar appearance on E!’s very own show The Soup.

Do you think her weight is an issue ( in Hollywood and in reality)?
