There’s been a huge uproar ever since Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson went on record addressing the show’s lack of diversity claiming black women just aren’t “ready” to appear on the iconic TV show. And we applaud everyone who’s been speaking out against his claims, because in our eyes female minority comedians are more than ready for the big league show. Perhaps SNL’s creator, Lorne Michaels isn’t looking deep enough.

Looks like Jessica Alba wasn't kidding when she said she wanted to jump full force into comedy! This past week, she appeared in two hysterical digital videos. The first was with MTV's movie editor Josh Horowitz, who interviewed her while the two were hanging out for a "slumber party". Jessica is hysterical, especially when she tells Horowitz that she loves making DIY beauty treatments and offers to take care of his unibrow.
