Dear Howard Stern,
Gabourey Sidibe is doing just fine, thank you very much!
Despite the shock jock's controversial remarks that the Precious Oscar-nominee will have trouble getting more work in Hollywood because of her size, a source exclusively tells me that…
Ms. Sidibe is going to be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live! "It literally just happened," my source said of the deal.
SNL is not—we repeat, not—the only gig Sidibe has scored since her feature film debut. She has a recurring role on Showtime's upcoming The Big C, about a teacher (Laura Linney) living with cancer. Sidibe plays one of her sassy students. The series, which is set to premiere in August, also costars Oliver Platt.
Sidibe also made a hilarious post-Oscar appearance on E!'s very own, The Soup.
