Keke Palmer says Amy Schumer is helping her prep for ‘SNL’ hosting duties | CNN

Keke Palmer is set to host “Saturday Night Live” for the first time on Dec. 3, alongside musical guest SZA.

While the “Nope” star has been acting since childhood, “SNL,” she said, is a “unique experience” that Amy Schumer has been helping her prep for.

“I’m thrilled to the moon. I just can’t wait,” Palmer told CNN in a recent interview. “I know it’s gonna be so much fun. I’m really excited about it and just looking forward to doing it. I think it’s gonna be a unique experience, but also some familiar territory. And then it’ll just be fun seeing how they do it, you know, on their side of it. Because I love sketch.”

“Amy [Schumer] actually talked to me about it and was walking me kind of through the whole thing,” she added.

Palmer said she’s looking at the hosting gig as kind of a “Broadway-ish” performance.

“I just wanna entertain, y’all and let’s have a good night,” she said.

As an entertainer since childhood, Palmer knows she is having a moment right now, but said she keeps her first planted firmly on the ground because she’s seen the ups and downs of Hollywood first hand.

“You know, the entertainment industry is funny that way. There will be moments in your life where everybody is just thinking about you and everything is always so exciting, and then it’ll be chill and then it won’t be as trendy or won’t be a moment,” she said. “I definitely do feel like there’s a bit of a trendy moment that’s happening [for me] and it’s fun and it’s exciting and I’m just loving to be able to continue to explore different avenues of entertainment … No moment lasts forever.”

Palmer’s star rose even higher over the summer with the release of director Jordan Peele’s “Nope,” which he wrote with her in mind.

She said it was an “insane” call to get.

“Jordan is just such a talented person and somebody I always wanted to work with again after I did ‘Key & Peele,’ and seeing how he has continued to evolve as a creator,” Palmer said, adding, “Then I read the script, I love the character. I love the world of sci-fi and adventure, but then I was like, man, this character is so unique. It’s such a rare combination that you get to play as a woman. That was such a cool arc that I was going to get the opportunity to go through from comedy to drama.

Palmer said she hopes to work with more directors.

“There are tons of people I think I could have some fun collaborating with. I would love to work with Samuel Jackson again. I would love to work with Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg. The list goes on. I would love to work with Jordan again,” she said. “Quentin Tarantino too, he’s very punchy and everything is very extreme in terms of entertainment. Like, he’s going to always give you a movie and a cinematic experience.”

For now, Palmer will be happily at home in Chicago with her parents for Thanksgiving. She has a current partnership with McCormick seasoning and said she even brings the company’s TEN spice box with her when she travels.

“There’s no reason for me to go to nobody’s house this holiday and for the them to not know how to spice up their food,” she laughed.

She won’t have that problem at home, however. Palmer said her dad does all the cooking and she gets a break.

“I’m rested and getting away,” she said.

Henry Cavill Holds Hands With GF Natalie Viscuso On Date After Saying He’s ‘Not Returning As Superman’

After announcing he wouldn’t be reprising his role of Superman, Henry Cavill licked his wounds with a little help from his girlfriend Natalie Viscuso in Beverly Hills on Friday, January 26. The pair were spotted out on a rare date night at celeb hotspot Mr. Chow, holding hands and looking like a couple of teenagers in love. Henry, 39, rocked a tight black shirt and matching pants, while Natalie, 32, followed his lead with a gorgeous dark ensemble.

While the British heartthrob didn’t appear fazed by the sad casting news during the date, losing out on the iconic character of Clark Kent, whom Henry played in three movies, must certainly be on his mind. He had even announced that he would be wearing the red cape again in October with a celebratory Instagram video, only to take it back less than two months later.

“I have just had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran and it’s sad news, everyone,” the Enola Holmes star wrote to his 23 million followers on Dec. 14. “I will, after all, not be returning as Superman. After being told by the studio to announce my return back in October, prior to their hire, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life.” He added, “The changing of the guard is something that happens. I respect that. My turn to wear the cape has passed, but what Superman stands for never will. It’s been a fun ride with you all, onwards and upwards.”

Many fans were caught off guard by the news, as Henry had recently donned the tights and boots for a cameo in Black Adam. It has yet to be announced who will be taking over the Man of Steel role.

Meanwhile, Henry and Natalie appear to be going from strength to strength. The couple went public on April 10, 2021, when Henry shared a sweet photo of them together on Instagram. “This is me looking quietly confident shortly before my beautiful and brilliant love Natalie, destroys me at chess,” he raved. Natalie, in turn, shared a tribute to Henry on his 38th birthday on May 5th, 2021. “Happiest of birthdays to my birthday boy,” she wrote.

Another Real Housewives reunion, another drama! During the taping of The Real Housewives of Miami Season 5 reunion, Bravo host Andy Cohen, 54, posted a video of him saying sorry to Larsa Pippen, 48, on Jan. 26. “We’re still shooting, and I didn’t have screaming at Larsa on my bingo card today,” he said via his Instagram Story. Immediately, the 48-year-old could be heard asking if Andy was going to apologize. “Are you going to apologize?”, she asked, to which the host replied, “I’m sorry Larsa.”

After he said he was sorry, someone off-camera asked why he was apologizing. “For screaming at her,” he began. “I don’t like screaming at women. I said it on the break, I don’t want to scream at women. Anyway, sorry.” After a fan re-posted the video to Instagram, many of the show’s viewers took to the comments to react to Andy’s post. “I’m glad that Andy yelled at Larsa she be too full of herself sometimes,” one fan wrote, while another added, “I don’t like Larsa but Andy is a little too comfortable screaming at women.”

Amid the apology, many of the fans also reacted to the seating arrangement at the reunion. “The #RHOM Reunion seating chart is here! Nicole [Martin] first chair! Kiki at reunion!”, the fan account captioned the photo. While they looked at the seating chart, one fan noted their opinion on who deserved to be closest to Andy. “Nicole and Lisa [Hochstein] deserved those first seats,” they penned, while another added, “I’m here for Nicole’s seat!!” Despite this, some were not pleased to see Guerdy Abraira sitting at the end of everyone else. “Justice for guerdy!!!”, the separate admirer wrote.

Prior to the bit of drama with Andy and Lisa, the 54-year-old took to his Instagram Story on Thursday to show off his reunion outfit. For the day of filming Andy rocked a dapper navy blue suit complete with a white button-up and black tie. “Good day for a reunion! #RHOM”, he captioned the mirror selfie. In the fan re-post, many reacted to Andy’s post with compliments on the show. “Best cast ever !!!!!!! Best show on Peacock,” one fan wrote, while another said, “Don’t want this season to end.”

The RHOM has been on since 2011 and currently stars Lisa, Larsa, Guerdy, Alexia Nepola, Dr. Nicole Martin and Julia Lemigova. Marysol Patton and Adriana de Moura also joined the show as “friends of the cast”, per US Weekly. Following the taping of the reunion, it was also reported that Larsa had unfollowed Nicole and Adriana, per Housewives Room. The Season 5 reunion is set to premiere on Peacock in the coming weeks, following the Dec. 8, 2022 finale.
