Kristen Wiig Returns to Host Saturday Night Live, Spoofs Mother's Day With Flowers Ad
Nearly one year after saying goodbye following her seven-year run on the show, Kristen Wiig returned to host Saturday Night Live on May 12. The 39-year-old actress reunited with former cast members, who helped her kick off the show with her opening monologue.
After singing a rendition of The Pointer Sisters' "I'm So Excited," Wiig gave a tour of backstage to prove she still knew the place well. Unfortunately, her memory wasn't that good and she accidentally walked in on Maya Rudolph and Jonah Hill making out in the janitor's closet.
Other highlights from the night included a funny sketch for a 1-800-Flowers commercial honoring Mother's Day. "This Mother's Day, I'm going to show my mom how much I care with a little help from 1-800-Flowers," Wiig said.
"Oh honey, I love these. Thank you," her mom (Kate McKinnon) said after receiving the flowers. "But maybe you should keep them because your apartment is so sad."
During brunch, her mother asked a waiter if there were nuts in her meal. "There are never nuts in eggs benedict," Wiig said. "You're not even allergic. Nothing would happen."
