Maya Rudolph ISN'T leaving 'SNL' after all



UPDATE: Tbdmayarudolph092607 Entertainment Weekly's Web site reported that Saturday Night Live staple Maya Rudolph wouldn’t be back for an eighth season, telling NBC on Sunday even though the show’s premiere is on Saturday.

But the truth is she decided on Tuesday to return to the show.

"It was an agonizing decision, but ultimately, I feel I made the best choice both as a mother and as an actress," she says. "I couldn’t be happier to be returning to SNL."

That’s good; We thought she suffered the fate of Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz and Finesse Mitchell, who were canned last September. Now we get more Whitney Houston impersonations!
