OMG! This is so sweet!
Last night Stephen Colbert opened the Colbert Report by explaining the sudden two day absence of his show last week.
It seems, for the first time in history, the media's speculations were WAY off. Stephen was NOT getting a face lift and she wasn't canceled by the Catholic Church. In actuality, Sweet Stephen went home to attend to his 91-year-old mother.
Though he doesn't come right out and explain it, Stephen gives her a shout out (above).
P.S. It looks like Momma Colbert is gonna be alright!
