bios_michaela1American actress Michaela Watkins, who did wonderful comic roles, specifically the Angie Tempura character, promoting her website “Bitch Pleeze” has been formally informed to leave “Saturday Night Live”. Even her co-worker on the show Casey Wilson was dropped off along with her.

We all were enamored by the witty skits Watkins entertained her viewers with and she even did brilliant impressions of Glen Close, Joan Rivers, Arianna Huffington, Ann Coulter and so many others.

She had a natural talent to chill you with her clever notions, her catchy commentary and confident body language. Americans loved her for her sweet persona and sense of humor, but what Watkins really needed was her own show because that’s what she was told when she was fired.

Albeit the actress was unprepared for such a situation, stating to sources that she was absolutely stunned when she was asked to leave “Saturday Night Live”, she plans to focus her attention on the positive side of things and do the many things in future that she has always wanted to do.

She said that her days with “Saturday Night Live” will be impregnated in her mind, since she had real fun on the show, and did not have much to regret. Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad are expected to show up for the next season on the show, however it was not made explicit whether they would be serving as additions or replacements.

Watkins said she respected Lorne Michaels, but his decision to drop her out, had left her wondering what he actually had in mind.
