Gaby Sidibe is probably trying to fool around with Andy Samberg

You know Gaby Sidibe is my girl. She was ballsy enough to tell Gerard Butler to his face that she wanted to “hit it”. On the Oscar red carpet, no less. When Gerard responded, “I’m here, I’m available,” Gaby even spun my dream Gerard Butler scenario: “Let’s grab a bottle of champagne and see where the night goes.” She’s an impossible flirt, and she’s f-cking awesome. So of course Saturday Night Live paired Gaby with the cute guy, Andy Samberg, for the promotional videos (note: I also consider Jason Sudekis “the cute guy”). I have to admit, I laughed at every single one of them. I think my favorite one is where Andy is crying on her breasts and she tells him to take off his pants. Chuckle.

Gaby’s appearance comes after months of criticism – about her weight, about her considerable talent, about her positive, upbeat, amazing attitude. Many wondered if Gaby would use SNL to answer her critics, but after seeing the promos, I kind of hope she doesn’t give them the satisfaction. She can be funny and cool without having to address a lot of the bullsh-t that people attack her for. What do you think? Will Gaby rock the SNL casbah?

    I like her, and I hope she does well with her career

  2. Lady Nightshade says:

    I haven’t watched SNL since, like, 98 when I was a kid, but I might actually try and catch this week

  3. Lenore says:

    I agree, I hope her appearance isn’t just a lot of rebuttals to the fat-shamers who’ve been criticising her. The best response really would be just to be on there, light up the show, her usual irrepressible giggly glorious self, without a word said about her size.

  4. lucy2 says:

    I hope she does well too, she seems very sweet and funny. The promos were OK, but I did like the one with her telling him to take off his pants.
    I think she’s going to be good on the show, and I hope she doesn’t address her critics – she should just do her best and have fun, like all the other actors do. The way she doesn’t apologize for her happiness is one of the things I really like about her.

    I didn’t find Jason Sudekis all that cute until he was Liz Lemon’s flower guy, and now I totally see it.

  5. hoodiegirl says:

    Cute promo.

    I hope she does well too. SNL has been really sucky lately. There have been a couple of good weeks but SNL is not the same as it once was.

  6. Roma says:

    This is all just leading up to the glory show – Betty White.

  7. Risa says:

    yippe-ka-yo-ka-yay mutha f**ka!!
    BAAHAHHAHAAAA…. oh I am so going to watch this week!

  8. Heylee says:

    I totally agree with both Risa (holy shiz that promo was hilarious) and Lady Nightshade. I have not watched SNL on a Sat night since high school but I am staying in to watch Gaby this week. I hope that she rocks everyone’s pants off!

  9. Peach says:

    I don’t get NBC where I live! Gah! This is terrible. I love this girl. She is my girl.
    And yeah, say whatever you want but she’s got some incredible timing. Ugh. She’s so cool.

  10. Feebee says:

    I hope she rocks SNL but since Tina Fey left the writing room a lot of the skits have been even more aimed at the teenage-minded man than usual. That could spell disaster.

    Fingers crossed, I’ll be tuning in for sure.

  11. bite me says:

    i think she is sumg arrogant little thing, i don’t like her, so let the stoning commence

  12. Juice in LA says:

    Love the promos. hope she nails the show, and it is the one SNL this year i will tune in for!

  13. Sumodo1 says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this child! Always watch SNL, it’s part of my life. Was there for the first episode and will be there for the last. Good or bad, there’s always new talent and political commentary. Maybe a good joke.

  14. CC says:

    Awesome promos. but Bill Hader is the cute guy on SNL. Except when he’s playing the alien or the Dateline guy…

  15. Shona says:

    I have never really watched SNL but I really like Gaby. I think she is a breath of fresh air for Hollywood. So I hope she causes their heads to spin. She has so much more class than all those haters out there and it shows everytime with what she says and her behavior. She is a class act.

  16. Feebee says:

    @ CC I love Bill Hader when he’s playing the Dateline guy – nails it!! He’s brilliant as James Carvel too.

  17. Carrie says:

    I think it has potential to be a good episode- she’s a talented actress, and completely charming and funny when in front of a live audience on talk shows.

    Plus, since she doesn’t look like the typical host (thin and white) there’s potential for them to break out some really different types of characters and maybe shake up things.

    I have a feeling, based only on how cool and unpretentious she seems, that she’ll be down for pretty much anything, which always makes for better episodes!!

  18. Red Folder says:

    I love her and her shameless flirting. She always looks like she’s having a good time and that’s nice!

  19. englishbreakfast says:

    get off my man!

  20. Keen says:

    I agree, Bill Hader is cute but so is Will Forte! He plays a weirdo a lot but in person, he’s kind of dreamy.

  21. Oenix says:

    Crucify me if you will, the shameless flirting is shameful. It’s scream “Somebody, ANYBODY, please do me!” Given all the negative comments about her appearance, her behavior only confirms a girl looking like that is desperate for a “peter”. She seems to be throwing herself at people. Had people feel like she had real, serious sex-appeal, we’d be saying something other than “she’s a confident woman”. In fact that very statement is really saying “Given what she looks like, it takes gut to put herself out like that.”.

  22. freckles says:

    Oenix – Go f*ck yourself. It sounds like you’re more desperate for a “peter” than she is.

    I love Gaby, she’s HILARIOUS in this! Her delivery is flawless

  23. gg says:

    Dang I haven’t heard the word “peter” used that way since 1980. I think she’s just ACTING, like she does, since she’s an actress?

  24. Mary Okorn-Jimenez says:


  25. Jillian says:

    I LOVE HER! I seriously just fell off my chair laughing at that.

  26. Aussie Mama says:

    Andy Samberg is swesome. One of my alltime favorite movies apart from Dumb and Dumber has to be Hotrod!
    He’s a legend!

  27. Rosie says:

    I love her, and because of that I hope that does lose weight for her health. So much talent, such a risk of obesity-related illness. Don’t want to lose this one any time soon.

  28. canadianchick says:

    Will dvr it-such a wuss I can’t stay up that late anymore. She seems like she’s having the time of her life-rock on Gaby,

  29. juicyjackie says:

    Well I am about her size (but white)and I am a brazen flirt and very open about who I think is hot and ………. it works …… i get loads of offers / phone numbers 🙂

    I think its because men see me as fun which I am, they like that I dont have all the hang ups (I KNOW my bum looks big in everything so f*ck it) and men hate to have to be the ones that do the chasing all the time.

    The majority of the guys that want to “hit it” with me are good looking and fun. I dont apologise and whinge about my weight which they find sexy. If all the weight and image obsessed skinny woman are too narcassistic to see that acting like all that matters is if they put in 3lb this month I am happy (along with Gaby) to go around and scoop up all the hot guys while you are distracted!

    I went to a nice cocktail bar last weekend and I got 3 guys giving me their numbers and my skinny gorgeous friend was gobsmacked ….. she is a stunner but she sat there like a wall flower all night whereas I smiled and talked to them

    Believe me if I met Gerard Butler he would be involved in a juicyjackie / gaby sidibe sex sandwiche!

    Just like me Gaby is using her personality and personal style to get what she wants outof life, I doubt she gives a hoot about what the world thinks because I dont

  30. RHONYC says:

    Andy would totally be the ultimate diet coach.

    If he ever caught Gaby stuffing her face with birthday cake he’d…


    LOL! 🙂

  31. BitterBetty says:

    She looks like a huge turd with a wig on.

  32. Anne says:

    That was so funny! I’ll definitely have to watch this episode! GO Abby GO Andy! LOL!

  33. palmetto says:


    Holy shit, I actually almost choked that was SO f*cking funny!! And true, she DOES look like a turd in a wig, lol you can’t polish a turd so slap a wig on it! OMG!

  34. jover says:

    SNL has stunk this year; lame hosts (Megan Fox and January Jones) awful musical guests (Kesha, for example, screaming as though someone is pulling out your fingernails is not singing) and generally it seems to many viewers that Lorne Greene and the cast are mailing it in. It totally needs an overhaul. This week with Gaby may be decent – but is more likely to be cringeworthy.

  35. Paul E. Stanley says:

    I wonder if all of you who think the promos were funny. Were watching the same thing I was? Because they weren’t and neither is she. I believe you think they were funny because you think it’s politically correct to find her funny.
