The Word: Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis moving on from SNL?

Wiig, Sudeikis and Samberg may no longer have "Saturday Night" plans.

Two sources have told Us Weekly that several of the best, more recognizable “Saturday Night Live” players are ready to move on. “Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis are all leaving after the end of the season,” says one insider. “It will be a huge blow to the show. Without Andy’s video shorts and Kristen saving every skit, they’ll need help!”

A rep for both Wiig, 38, and Sudeikis, 36, deny the rumor, telling Us, “No decisions are made until the season is over.” But another “pal” of Wiig’s says the timing is right: “Kristen was talking about leaving a while ago. With her movie success, it’s no surprise.”

It’s time, but it’s too bad — they (and the occasional crazy guest host, a la Lindsay Lohan) made the show worth watching this season. Although now that we think about it, that’s a pretty sad highlight reel.

More Vanderpump!

Lisa Vanderpump is the one “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star who doesn’t need a reality TV paycheck — yet she’s the one cast member who is getting a spin-off. “Bravo has confirmed Lisa’s own show,” an insider tells Life & Style. “It’s going to be about her restaurant Sur Lounge and feature the staff and happenings there.”

“A key character in the show is going to be Scheana Marie, the woman who hooked up with John Mayer and Eddie Cibrian and works at Lisa’s restaurant,” a second source tells Life & Style.
Don’t worry: Vanderpump will also still be a prime time player on the show that made her famous. “Yes, she’s also returning for Season 3 of ‘Housewives,’” the insider says. “She’ll be juggling both.”
