Actress Kerry Washington
of Scandal revealed her baby bump on the recent episode of Saturday Night Live and she also helped the show address SNL vet Kenan Thompson
‘s controversial comments regarding the show’s lack of diversity.
In case you haven’t heard, Thompson (who happens to be an Atlanta native) recently caught a ton of flack after he made a statement that that Black women who audition for roles on the show simply haven’t been “ready” for prime time.
“It’s just a tough part of the business,” he told TV Guide. “Like in auditions, they just never find ones that are ready.”
While Thompson’s comments may have rang true, the show took advantage of Washington’s appearance on the show to reveal it’s response to the drama.
In one single skit, Washington portrays Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. When she’s asked to exit the Oval Office a third time to return as Beyonce, a voice over and text reveals SNL’s apologetic response.

and Kroy Biermann weren’t the only ones who took advantage of the once in a lifetime chance to marry on the magical date of 11-11-11.
In fact, SNL funnyman (and Atlanta native) Kenan Thompson jumped the broom on the same date.
Several outlets are reporting that Kenan and his controversial boo Christina Evangeline had wed at Atlanta’s Georgia Aquarium, however the 33-year-old comedian and his 23 year old bride opted for an outdoor wedding as opposed to the confines of aquarium walls.
The reports are HALF true, however, in that the couple held their reception in the Arctic Room of the Georgia Aquarium. Kenan’s pal Nick Cannon reportedly made an appearance on the happy day to do some DJing.

Comedian Kenan Thompson
, who also happens to be an Atlanta native, portrayed a fellow ATLien during last weekend’s Saturday Night Live.
Dressed in feathers, funky glasses & a shimmering cape with a bottle of ‘freaky moscato’ close by, the actor spoofed the artist known as CeeLo Green in a skit called “Gettin’ Freaky With CeeLo”…
During the “show,” Kenan (as Ceelo) offers advice to a married couple with sex issues, stating:
“Attractiveness is about confidence. It’s about attitude. There was a time when people didn’t think I was attractive.
Thompson also briefly touches on Ceelo and his “freaky fixation” with groupies, as he references making love to ‘a pile of ladies’.
Not many hip-hoppers are honored with SNL spoofs, and while Thompson resembles Jazze Pha way more than Ceelo… it’s still worth a watch.
