I am so sad. She was so funny and talented and they really fucking slept on her the whole time she was on the show. Even in her last episode they didn’t give her enough airtime, much less enough lines. I hope she goes on to do bigger and better things because she really deserves it.
I’m not really sad about Sasheer leaving because I felt that she wasn’t being used on SNL that much and having her on longer would be a waste of her talents. But now with the national exposure she’s gotten over the past few years, I’m very hopeful that she’ll be getting a lot of TV or film roles coming her way. She always struck me as someone who was talented but never got the chance fully show off how great she was. Kinda like with Nasim, though I hope she gets better opportunities post-SNL. But now with Vanessa and Sasheer gone, I wonder if this will increase the chances of Melissa getting brought back for another season?
