Howard Stern can take his highly abrasive opinions and shove them as Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe proves him wrong for saying she’ll have no more opportunities in Hollywood past her debut in the hit movie “Precious.” It was recently announced that Gabby will be hosting an upcoming episode of the popular NBC sketch comedy series “Saturday Night Live!”

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.

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.


Hollywood might just have to make room for Ms. Sidibe, don’t you think? Because it looks as though she ain’t going nowhere anytime soon!
