Okay, honestly, Maya Rudolph has got to stop toying with our emotions. After telling NBC on Sunday (Sept. 23) that she would not be returning to Saturday Night Live — which was a sudden change of heart, as all involved expected her to return — the woman behind the best Oprah impression on earth has now decided she will be back after all. Seriously. For real.

In a statement released to NBC, the fickle comedianne tells her now completely flummoxed — but no doubt relieved — fans: ”It was an agonizing decision, but ultimately, I feel I made the best choice both as a mother and as an actress. I couldn?t be happier to be returning to SNL.”

Great news. See you this Saturday, Maya. Now, we?re going to go lie down.
