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.

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

So, will you be ordering your copy of Kelly’s memoir? Let us know in the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

John Cena Sets World Record After Granting 650th Wish for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation

There is nobody more requested at the Make-A-Wish Foundation than John Cena. The 16-time WWE wrestling champ-turned-actor for years has granted the wishes of children with critical illnesses for the non-profit foundation.

Now comes the news from the Guinness Book of World Records that Cena has broken the record for granting 650 wishes to children who have put him as the person they want to meet the most.

To put this into context, no other celebrity has ever granted more than 200 wishes in the 42-year existence of Make-A-Wish.

According to a press release, Cena started granting wishes back in 2002 and completed his 100th in 2012, now he is at 650.

Recently this past June, John visited Misha, a teenager with down-syndrome who fled Ukraine after his home was destroyed. In order to keep Misha’s spirits up, his mother told him they were on their way to find John Cena. You can watch their story below, followed by a video package honoring Cena’s 500th milestone with the organization.

On a personal note: as someone who at one time worked as the Director of Communications for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation at a locale chapter in the U.S, I know the smiles and the impact a visit from a child’s personal idol can make to help lift their spirits when trying to cope with critical health issues.

Congratulations John!
