Jane Lynch found out about her SNL performance through a text message

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: My blogging schedule remains screwy as my mom recovers from her hip surgery. We hope to bring her home today but aren’t sure yet! So here are some items that might have to last you the rest of the day! Hopefully I can get back to a more consistent schedule tomorrow!

BUSY LADY: When Saturday Night Live wanted Jane Lynch to host an episode in October, they went straight to her Glee boss Ryan Murphy to get permission. “I notified her by accident,” Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter at the New York premiere of his new film Eat, Pray Love. “Saturday Night Live called to say, ‘Would you give us Jane for a week in October?’ We just don’t do that, but for Lorne Michaels, I said yes.” Then, Murphy sent a text message to an unsuspecting Lynch: “I said, ‘Lady, you’re doing Saturday Night Live,” Murphy told THR. “And she literally wrote back, ‘What are you talking about?’”

MOVING ON UP: Don’t know about you, but I’d love to have Rachel Maddow in my neighborhood. The brainy and super cool MSNBC host and her partner Susan Mikula have just purchased singer Michael Stipe’s West Village apartment for $1.25 million.

Since it is two combined units, the couple will have plenty more room than their previous digs which at about 275 square feet, Rachel once described as “the size of a van.”

Rachel is the host of The Rachel Maddow Show which airs Monday-Friday at 9 p.m. Eastern on MSNBC-TV, and is re-broadcast on MSNBC at 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. Source: Curbed via Towleroad
