Kristen Wiig & Bill Hader Become Real Housewives Of New York For Andy Cohen & They Couldn't Be MORE Perfect!

kristen wiig bill hader reenact rhony scene

This just may be one of the best segments Andy Cohen has ever done.

The Watch What Happens Live host had Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig on and had them recreate a HIGHlarious Real Housewives of New York scene between Ramona Singer and Kristen Taekman and they absolutely NAILED IT.

Kristen did Ramona's accent perfectly and Bill screams at her with such disdain that they could have actually been channeling the two housewives.

It's pretty perfect!

But on a more ridiculously serious note, can someone create a TV show where these two imitate infamous Real Housewives scenes?

Seriously, get Lorne Michaels on it!

Ch-ch-check out the brilliance (below)!!!

Kanye West Defends Drake & The Rolling Stone Debacle, Then Goes OFF On Saturday Night Live! Watch His Outrageous Rant HERE!

kanyewest snl

Kanye West has beef with a lot of people but Drake ain’t one of them!

The Yeezus tour made a stop in Newark over the weekend and the preachy performer took 10 minutes to educate his audience on any bad blood between him and Drizzy.

According to Kanye, it’s nonexistent and TOTALLY made up by the media!

He sermonized the Prudential Center, saying:

"They always be trying to pit n*ggas against each other and that ain't going down no more. We love Drake. We love every motherf*cker that puts their heart into this motherf*cking music. If anything, we gonna go after the motherf*ckers writing that negativity!”

Drake was under fire last week after allegedly spouting off about being kicked off the cover of Rolling Stone by the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. Critical comments he made about West’s album Yeezus also made it into the interview, which Drake claims he made outside of the “interview portion” of his conversation with the magazine.

So Kanye has Drake’s back and is going after anyone, “writing negativity.”

And just moments after making those comments, Ye went to work on going after those mother*ckers!

First up on his sh*tlist -

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the Dec. 21 episode averaged a 6.3 rating and 16 share among households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets.”

The last time the numbers came close to this was

snl black women audtion instagram watermark

Please, please, PLEASE let this not be true!!!

Earlier this week, word spread that Saturday Night Live was holding auditions in Los Angeles in an attempt to try and find a MUCH needed black woman to join the cast of NBC’s late night staple, which celebrated its 39th season this year.

Above is a picture of some of the talented and funny females who were brought in for the chance of a lifetime - to audition for SNL creator Lorne Michaels! Only problem, Lorne wasn’t even there!

So was this audition legit or was this tryout sesh all just smoke and mirrors?!

Comedian Tiffany Haddish was one of the lucky few invited to the Groundlings Theater that day but she says the whole event was horse sh*t! Tiffany explained:
