The ladies of Saturday Night Live, including Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Cheri Oteri, Kristen Wiig, Laraine Newman, Maya Rudolph, Molly Shannon, Nora Dunn, Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey will be joined by funnylady Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bravo TV honcho Andy Cohen in a comedy skit spoofing The Real Housewives franchise for their upcoming The Women of SNL comedy special set to air on NBC on Monday November 1 … and here is our first look at the ladies of SNL doing their best housewives impression:
When you add the very funny women of ‘Saturday Night Live’ with the hilarious absurdity that is ‘Real Housewives’ reunions, what do you get? Gold, from the looks of it. Check out Bravo host Andy Cohen playing ringmaster with Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, Nora Dunn, Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch, Cheri Oteri and Kristen Wiig all channeling their best ‘Real Housewives.’ The segment is set for NBC’s ‘Women of SNL’ special set to air Nov. 1. The set is pure ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ season 1 reunion, and those one-shoulder dresses are a staple of ‘Real Housewives’ fashion. In fact, hasn’t the Kelly Bensimon worn the exact dress Molly Shannon has on? Other photos included several of the women holding individual microphones, hopefully singing wonderful Auto-Tuned songs. Whether the women are playing actual ‘Housewives’ or just versions of themselves remains to be seen. The aforementioned ‘SNL’ veterans will be joined by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Laraine Newman and Amy Poehler to create new content for the ‘Saturday Night Live’ retrospective. That’s a whole lot of funny on tap.
It sounds like a funny concept … we’ll have to wait and see how it works in actual execution. After the jump, check out one more promo photo of Amy Poehler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Laraine Newman up close and housewifey …
This could either be EXTREMELY funny or extremely not. I guess we’ll have to tune in Monday night to find out which it will be. What do y’all think … is this skit comedy gold or a poop sandwich waiting to be served?
