Yahoo! It’s confirmed that Betty White, 88 years old, is going to be on SNL on Mother’s Day. Given her age, it was speculated that she wouldn’t be hosting alone – and that is correct. But – who she’s hosting with makes it all even better!
On May 8th, the hilarious Golden Girl from St. Olaf will host with the key other funny ladies of our my SNL generation: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer & Rachel Dratch. “Although she doesn’t have any children, she’s the mother of us all in comedy,” says SNL’s Lorne Michaels.
Seriously, this episode is going to be amazing. I’m excited whenever any of these women make guest appearances back on SNL. Of course you remember how awesome Tina & Amy were on the Weekend Update. Molly Shannon as Sally O’Malley, or the school girl Mary Katherine Gallagher. Maya Rudolph who does a fantastically funny impersonation of Tyra Banks on ANTM. Ana Gasteyer who was totally underrated but absolutely hilarious. Remember her and Molly Shannon in Shweatty Balls? Lastly, who can forget Rachel Dratch…the infamous Debbie Downer…”Wahhh, Wahhhh.”
Can you imagine if they do a Golden Girls spoof? Oh. My. God.
