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.
