The show’s creator Lorne Michaels allegedly kept rejecting Kimye scripts so he could book Kanye as a musical guest!

Wayne's World Cast Reunites After 20 Years!! No More Mike Myers-Dana Carvey Feud?!

waynes world reunion

Everyone loves cast reunions. Especially ones that happen 20 years after the fact.

The cast of Wayne’s World reunited in Beverly Hills yesterday for an event hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in honor of the HIGHlarious 1992 film!

Mike Myers, Lorne Michaels, Rob Lowe, Lara Flynn Boyle, Dana Carvey and Penelope Spheeris all turned up for the big event!

This was perhaps a bit surprising given that Mike, Dana, and Penelope had fallen out following filming. Apparently, Mike had not only been difficult on set, but was rumored to have taken his Dr. Evil voice from one of Dana’s impressions. Meanwhile, Penelope had been upset that Mike had reportedly prevented her from directing the Wayne’s World sequel. Jeeeeez.

What’s more, Mike admitted:

Abby Elliott Fired From SNL??

Abby Elliott leaving snl

Saturday Night Live is DONE with Abby Elliott!

After four years on the show, Abby has officially "decided" to leave.

Seeing as the actress isn't leaving for another TV gig or movie, we have a hunch leaving wasn't 100% her choice.

The truth, is Abby didn't provide the show with awesome original characters, like Andy Samberg and reining queen of our hearts Kristen Wiig — who announced their departure from the cast earlier this summer. Also, the Abbster had a lazy habit of not memorizing her lines and reading cue cards on air. Srsly, did she think we wouldn't notice that?

That said, we must mention that
