  1. SNL host pics are always jazzed up in this way, it has nothing to do with Melissa McCarthy specifically.

  2. JuliaH says:

    I hate that people are attempting to Photoshop Melissa’s magnificence, but ultimately, who cares. Her massive talent, personality and gift to the world at large regarding her comedic gifts will be far more important than magazines who try to ‘reduce’ her via Photoshop. She is worth SOOOoo much more than that, and I think (hope) she knows it. Melissa, you are my Christmas, birthday and Mother’s Day gift all wrapped up into one. LOVE her!! <3

    Is it just me or has Melissa McCarthy been Photoshopped into Delta Burke?

  4. She’s so pretty. :D <3
