They even partied together for a bit! Thank goodness someone thought to get a picture!

What made the party especially cool for the "Lady Ghostbusters" is that original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Sigourney Weaver were all on hand too!

We wonder if they got any advice… like, don't cross the streams! LOLz!

The Cast Of The All-Female Ghostbusters Reboot Is HERE!

no title

They're here!

Ever since the all-female Ghostbusters reboot was announced, we've been wondering who would snag the roles as the titular paranormal exterminators.

Now we know, and we couldn't be much happier!

Melissa McCarthy has reportedly already signed on, and Kristen Wiig is in final negotiations.

But those two were no-brainers. They worked with Paul Feig on the ultra-successful Bridesmaids and are probably the biggest female comedy stars in the world right now.

SNL Writer Receives Criticism For Slavery Jokes On Weekend Update! Read The Response From Ebony.com's Senior Editor HERE!

lesliejones

Did she just cross a line, or was she pushing the envelope as all good comedians should do?

On last Saturday's SNL, writer Leslie Jones gave a controversial performance while on Weekend Update:

"See, I’m single right now, but back in the slave days, I would have never been single. I’m six feet tall and I’m strong, Colin. Strong! I mean, look at me, I’m a mandingo…I’m just saying that back in the slave days, my love life would have been way better. Massah would have hooked me up with the best brotha on the plantation, and every nine months I'd be in the corner having a super baby. Every nine months I'd be in the corner just popping them out: Shaq, Kobe, LeBron, Kimbo Slice, Sinbad…I would be the No. 1 slave draft pick."

We can understand how this might spark an uproar, but isn't this making fun of slavery?

Well, one person who did not like this segment was the Senior Editor of Ebony.com, Jamilah Lemieux:

Saturday Night Live Adding Two Black Women To Their Writers' Room!

lakendra tookes leslie jones sbs watermark

Rejoice!!!

Not only is Saturday Night Live adding a new and much needed black female cast member, they’ve also just hired two African-American women for their writers’ room!

LaKendra Tookes and Leslie Jones were discovered during the recent round of auditions that SNL held in order to find a funny black female to add to their cast.

The job went to Sasheer Zamata, who was announced as the newest featured player for the late-night sketch show earlier this week. But SNL’s need for more diversity is extending to the writing team as well, with the addition of LaKendra and Leslie!

LaKendra is a former news reporter who has been working as a stand up comedian in El Lay. Leslie is also a performer, and although there are no plans to have them appear on the show at this time, it’s very common for SNL’s writers to get a cameo appearance on the show from time to time!

Congratz, ladies, on this once in a lifetime gig!!!
