These ‘SNL’ Stars were Able to Land Huge Celebs who Guested on the Show
Saturday Night Live (SNL) is surely known for bringing umpteen laughs to viewers, but it’s also brought many stars together. From old-school SNL veterans to more recent stars, many late-night stars who are part of the cast, met their significant others while working on the NBC show. And while a few relationships crashed and burned out, others have remained strong and unbreakable. Let us review some successful and unsuccessful ones!

After Radner died in 1989 because of cancer, Bill praised his ex-girlfriend for encouraging him to be more confident in Hollywood.

He also dwelt upon Fisher ultimately preferringPaul Simon, marrying him in 1989 but later divorcing him too. He acknowledged that Carrie married Paul but he hoped that she kept his ring.
