The world is a little colder now that Kristen Wiig will no longer grace the stage of SNL every week. Sure, she'll probably come back to host every now and then, but it's just not the same.

Good thing her finale party was such a BASH!!!

Rocking out with the Foo Fighters at the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink, Kristen was sippin' that Coors Light and

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsRihannaHealth

Uh-oh!

We wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see her on the Saturday Night Live stage for quite some time after this!

While Rihanna put up some seriously solid performances on the sketch comedy show last night, she reportedly gave producers some serious grief when she called in sick for the dress rehearsal…which takes place RIGHT before the actual show!
