*Hey Howard Stern, guess who’s got another job? That would be the fat lady you said had no future in the entertainment business just because she was nominated for a best actress Oscar.
Of course the person we’re referring to is Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe, the star of the Oscar nominated film “Precious.”
E! Online’s Marc Malkin is reporting that Sidibe has been offered a hosting gig on an upcoming “Saturday Night Live” show.
No, we don’t have a date of her hosting, but Jennifer Lopez is set to host this Saturday, followed by Tina Fey and Ryan Phillippe. We’re guessing Gabby’s appearance will be sometime in May or June at the latest.
Meantime Howard, don’t sleep on the fact that since “Precious,” Ms. Sidibe has already scored a recurring role on Showtime’s upcoming “The Big C,” about a teacher living with cancer. Sidibe plays one of the students in the series, which is set to premiere in August.
