Andy Samberg Leaving Saturday Night Live
Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb bring in Huffington Post Celebrity columnist Rob Shuter to discuss the entertainment news from the weekend. Up first, Andy Samberg announced he will be leaving Saturday Night Live. That makes it two big names leaving the show (him and Kristen Wiig)…things are still up in the air if Jason Sudeikis will be leaving or not. Rob says the show is really the star, so it will survive without them.
Drew Barrymore’s 3rd Wedding
There were a trio of celebrity weddings over the weekend…Drew Barrymore, Kelsey Grammer and Ashley Biden. Drew
Barrymore married for the third time, with a wedding taking place in her backyard. Her father-in-law used to be the CEO of Chanel, so naturally she wore a Chanel dress. In attendance for the wedding, were Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and Jimmy Fallon.
Kelsey Grammer Remarried Kayte

Obama Didn’t Attend Ashley Biden’s Wedding!

Kathie Lee & Hoda: The Avengers
Next up for Rob Shuter and Kathie Lee and Hoda…the weekend box office. Snow White and the Huntsman took in over $50 million for it’s opening weekend, which was well over expectations…it was a huge hit! The story of the weekend though was The Avengers, which has now grossed over $500 million domestically. That moves it to the #3 spot, only behind Avatar and Titantic. Rob Shuter said it is still going strong, so it could go on to beat both of them.
Finally, they talked about the Queen’s Jubilee. Tonight will be the big concert outside of Buckingham Palace, which will feature Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, and Elton John. The Queen will sit in the balcony where William and Kate shared their first kiss for the world to see.
