SNL's Kenan Thompson has been in the press a lot lately, following the recent announcment that NBC is developing a Kenan Thompson sitcom, a vehicle that the former SNICK standout would write, executive produce, and star in. Apparently though, we shouldn't expect his former homie Kel anywhere near that set.  Via the adult world's equivalent of girl who whispers shit by the lockers, 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.”

Joke about orange soda. Joke about that weird internet rumor a few years back that Kel was dead. No joke about how we all got to stay up late on Saturday Nights because Kenan and Kel, and how all our elementary school selves went ape shit during that episode guest starring Ron Harper.
