Gabourey Sidibe Hits on Brian Williams (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 28th 2011 3:15PM
Gabourey Sidibe's propensity for hitting on older men ran into Brian Williams' awkward mojo Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC). As the gang was talking about the scene in 'Tower Heist' where Sidibe flirts with Eddie Murphy, and Al Roker brought up the fact that Sidibe was standing next to one of her real-life crushes, Williams.

"I'm so embarrassed by this," Sidibe said. But Williams stepped in to save her, saying, "We've done a few charity events together, we've had our moments in the past, we've admitted this publicly." After they kissed on the cheek, Roker ended the segment with an apt sign-off. "Can't wait to see 'Rock Center,'" he said, in his best Quagmire from 'Family Guy' voice. Neither can we, Al.

'The Big C' - 'Boo!'While Paul was getting let go and Kathy was struggling to start her first day at the new clinical trial on 'The Big C' (Mon., 10:30PM ET on Showtime), Sean was having a struggle of his own back at home. Even though his medications have helped tremendously with his bipolar tendencies, he'd begun to hear noises in the house.

He simply thought he was going crazy, until Andrea (Gabourey Sidibe) stopped by and freaked him out even more about it.

When Sean shared that he felt like he was hearing ghosts, Andrea jumped at his supernatural speculation, exclaiming, "I believe in this s***." The former owner, Marlene, had recently committed suicide there.

Gabourey Sidibe Has a Secret Twitter Account, Called a Facebook Fan (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 24th 2011 5:37AM
Gabourey Sidibe, 'Chelsea Lately'Gabourey Sidibe is dealing with the social networking aspect of being a modern celebrity in her own way. She told Chelsea Handler on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) that she has a secret Twitter account with only eleven followers.

There is a Gabourey Sidibe account out there, but she insists it's not her. "It has to be a guy, because all this Gabourey Sidibe does is eat, watch football and masturbate," she said. "It's so not me, because I don't watch football."

She did, however, decide to call one of her Facebook fans on a whim. According to Sidibe, "He was like, 'Call me, sexy.' And I was like, 'All right.'"

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Gabourey Sidibe/MGMT' Recap

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 25th 2010 3:00PM
(S35E20) Like most of the public, I only knew Gabourey Sidibe from 'Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire' (Okay, seriously, if we're gonna do that, can we put it on the end of every movie adaptation of a novel? 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, based on the novel 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' by JK Rowling). It was one of those movies that I wasn't sure if I wanted to even watch because just looking at Sidibe in the trailers made me uncomfortable.

Robin Quivers Defends Gabourey Sidibe Comments Made on 'Howard Stern' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 23rd 2010 3:30PM
Howard Stern's sidekick Robin Quivers appeared on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) and defended comments she and Stern made that 'Precious' actress Gabourey Sidibe would have a difficult time succeeding in Hollywood due to her weight.

"The young lady has a major problem with weight. An actor's body is a part of their instrument. You have to be able to fit yourself into a role. She happened to be perfect for 'Precious,' but how many roles are there like that in Hollywood? That's the first thing. The second thing is everybody can see she has a major problem, and nobody wants to address it," Quivers said.

Five Great 'SNL' Hosts That Will Never Happen

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 6th 2010 6:29PM
'SNL' logoA host can make or break an entire episode of 'Saturday Night Live.' In fact, the mere presence of some celebrities like Chevy Chase, Milton Berle and Frank Zappa have turned their slice of Saturday late night into the lowest moments of "Must-Miss TV."

However, things are looking good this season. A preliminary list of hosts includes Oscar nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe, former 'SNL'er and '30 Rock' star Tina Fey and 'Golden Girl' actress and new found Internet champion Betty White.

However, some pop culture icons, nay legends, will never get to prove their celebrity power by hosting this comedy powerhouse simply because they never got an invitation, the show wasn't around in their time or they physically couldn't go to the studio. These hosts would have made for the best shows if the laws of time and space went on a week-long coffee break.

'Saturday Night Live' Doesn't Think Gabourey Sidibe Is Too Fat

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 1st 2010 8:02PM
Gabourey SidibeIt's interesting that in E! Online's announcement about 'Precious' star Gabourey Sidibe being asked to host an upcoming episode of 'Saturday Night Live,' their writer referenced a couple of disrespectful quotes Howard Stern had made about Sidibe in early March. Stern makes a living by saying things that push the envelope of good taste, but these words seem to have resonated a bit more than usual.

"There's the most enormous, fat black chick I've ever seen," he said. "She is enormous. Everyone's pretending she's a part of show business and she's never going to be in another movie." He even took on Oprah Winfrey, who's certainly no stranger to weight struggles or lasting success. "Oprah's another liar, a filthy liar. She's telling an enormous woman the size of a planet that she's going to have a career."

Jennifer Aniston Watches Gabourey Sidibe Hit on Gerard Butler (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 17th 2010 12:13AM
Access Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston, Gerard ButlerJennifer Aniston missed the footage of Gabourey Sidibe hitting on Gerard Butler at the Oscars. But all is well, because she had a chance to watch it on 'Access Hollywood' (weekdays, 12:30PM ET on NBC), while the two were promoting 'The Bounty Hunter' (in theaters Friday).

It's pretty funny, too. On the red carpet, Sidibe said, "I kinda said I'd hit that," referring to Butler, who seemed at a loss for words, but managed to choke out, "I'm here. I'm available."

It was awkward, and continued to be awkward when Aniston and Butler watched it back again like deer caught in the headlights. You've gotta hand it to Sidibe, though, who doesn't shirk from anything. "I like where this is goin'," she said. "Maybe we should get a bottle of champagne and see where the night takes us."

Flaming Jump Ropes Rock 'America's Best Dance Crew' (VIDEO)

America's Best Dance Crew, Flaming Jump RopesOmarion said pretty much what we were thinking while watching the flaming jump ropes on 'Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV).

"What I'm thinking to myself while I'm watching it is, if they mess up this fire, there's somebody ass is gonna be on fire." Yeah, seriously. Props to the fire jumpers.

Then again, those jackets look flame retardant, so maybe it wouldn't have been a complete blaze of glory. And Gabourey Sidibe looked like she loved it.

On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Whoopi Goldberg criticized shock jock Howard Stern for a recent comment he made about Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Stern said on his satellite radio show that Sidibe's weight would make it difficult for her to have a successful career after 'Precious.'

"Gabby actually has a TV show and two movies that she's doing," Goldberg said in Sidibe's defense. "You think she's big, okay. But at least get the facts right."

Her reward for enduring Al Roker's questions: a foot massage by Meredith Vieira.
