Kate McKinnon once again cracks up her Saturday Night Live co-stars, and the audience, and herself when she appears  on last night’s episode as Deenie, somebody’s mom who is obsessed with her favorite soap opera, The Young and the Restless.

Deenie comes in during a segment of  Weekend Update to give a recap of what happened in Genoa City in 2015 and chats it up with Weekend Update anchor, Colin Jost.

However, Deenie has nicknames for all of the characters on Y&R  including: “Moustache Man”, “Perfect Skin”, “Sexpot”, “Dark Hair”, “Hottie”, “Skinny Minnie”, “Priss Pants”, “Big Boobs”, and “Military Doctor”.

Watch Kate as Deenie explaining what went down this year in Genoa City after the jump! Then, let us know which characters is Deenie referencing above?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Kate McKinnon is a marvel! Her characters and impersonations are terrific. I’m still cracking up over her alien abductee character from a couple of weeks ago!

Right, Jamesj? Plus, it is so obvious and amusing to watch Colin Jost thoroughly enjoy himself watching the characters do the ridiculous. You could tell how sometimes, he tries very hard to control his mirth.He just soaks it all up. Last night we were watching old episodes;…. Jimmy Fallon doing Barry Gibb with Justin Timberlake, as Robin, gets me every time. I never tire watching these shows over and over again.

Thanks for your reply, CeeCee. You’re right about Colin Jost. It’s such fun to watch the show when the writing is good and the actors really get into character. Kate is adept, for sure. In the scene I referenced (talk show with alleged survivors of alien abductions), Kate was so good, host Ryan Gosling was cracking up. I also love those Timberlake episodes and much, much more…

@ su0000, another SNL fan! Awesome! I definitely like your input as well! Lots of great memories from SNL.

You and CeeCee may be surprised to hear that I continue to use countless SNL catchphrases, some decades old, in part because I’m such a wild and crazy guy!

@su.
Thanks for the info. Speaking of George Carlin, he and my grandfather went to the same all-boys High School; Cardinal Hayes. He was always a very funny man, or so granpapa says.

That’s funny Ceecee, I was watching “The Best of Jimmy Fallon” and “The Ladies of SNL” yesterday also.

When you see Jimmy Fallon doing impressions you realize how talented he really is. I was amazed how he looked and sounded exactly like Adam Sandler and Gilbert Gottfried! And his Bee Gees impression even made his fellow Bee Gee Justin Timberlake almost bust out laughing. He got Justin to laugh when they did a Family Feud sketch recently.

James: SATURDAY NIGHT will never get old. All the characters are memorable and immortal…..and neither will Steve Martin’s catchphrase, get old. I try never to miss a show.
Blake: Timberlake and Fallon are a class and classic act. Those two are the funniest pair since Abbot and Costello. Have you ever seen Fallon do impressions of the gorgeous Jim Morrison? Or THE BOSS? How about Neil Young? My gosh….to die for. These skits never lose their flavor.

That was the best! I loved watching Ryan Gosling lose it every time she was telling bits of her story.

Hi Chrystie!

I had to rewatch the skit after my last post, just to refresh my memory. This past weekend’s show (with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts) was terrific, in my opinion…

You would think an NBC show like SNL would have had her talk about Days instead.

So in Deenie’s cast of characters, who is who?
Mustache – Victor
Big Boobs – Ashley?
Military Dr – Stitch

I was wondering the same thing, lol. Couldnt tell who Big Boobs is…
at first I thought Nikki? And Perfect Skin, I thought of Abby until it
was obvious by the boathouse reference she meant Hilary.
But was funny overall.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
