Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell came thiiiiiis close to squashing their longstanding beef at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards — Kel totally thought it was happening … and then it didn’t.
We caught up with Kel in Sherman Oaks Monday, and he told our camera guy he was under the impression during their segment Sunday night … Kenan would give him a shout out.
For everyone above the age of 12 who missed it — Nickelodeon gave one of the executive producers of “Kenan & Kel” a Lifetime Achievement award, and Thompson sent in a recorded speech where he never acknowledged working with Kel.
Sources close to Kenan say it wasn’t meant to be a diss … producers didn’t tell him to mention Kel until after the piece had been filmed and he was too busy for a re-shoot.
Kel says he’s not mad — and even offers one final plea to Kenan in regard to a reunion.
Watch … it has nothing to do with orange soda.
