With Melissa McCarthy and Wendi McLoven-Covey already weighing in on the non-controversy of Universal's possible plan to do a "Bridesmaids" sequel into production without its star Kristen Wiig, leave to the film's producer Judd Apatow to make the funniest comment about the absurd situation yet.

With Melissa McCarthy and Wendi McLoven-Covey already weighing in on the non-controversy of Universal's possible plan to do a "Bridesmaids" sequel into production without its star Kristen Wiig, leave to the film's producer Judd Apatow to make the funniest comment about the absurd situation yet.

Last night at the 2012 People's Choice Awards, PopSugar cornered the "Bridesmaids" crew (who won Favorite Comedy Movie) and asked Apatow about the idea of doing a sequel without Wiig, and he said, "That's like 'Water For Elephants' without RPatz." That magic just doesn't happen out of thin air folks.

Anyway, you can watch Apatow throw in his zinger below, and we'll wait with bated breath for Ellie Kemper to eventually weigh in on the matter.
