SNL’s Kenan Thompson has been receiving a lot of attention lately, following NBC’s announcement that they are developing a Kenan Thompson sitcom, a vehicle that the former Nickelodeon standout would write, executive produce, and star in.
However, we should not expect his former partner in crime Kel anywhere near that set. Here’s what we learned about the pair’s friendship via TMZ :
Don’t count on ever seeing the Kenan and Kel reunion you always hoped for — because Kel Mitchell tells TMZ, Kenan’s dropped him like a hot potato…and is actively avoiding him.
Kenan Thompson — who starred with Kel in a million different Nickelodeon projects back in the day — is currently developing a new comedy pilot with NBC, so we reached out to Kel to see if he’d be making a cameo. BUT OUR DREAMS WERE DASHED TO PIECES.
Kel tells TMZ, “The truth is Kenan does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him.”
Growing up it seemed as though Kenan & Kel had an unbreakable bond, but in the real world it is not uncommon to see the best of friends become distant strangers!
