Kim Kardashian was all confident and savage for her “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut. The Reality queen poked fun at her family-Kris,Jenner,Caitlyn Jenner, her sisters, Kanye West and OJ Simpson, even SNL.
She said; “I’m surprised to see me here, too. I haven’t had a movie premiere in a really long time. I mean actually I only had that one movie come out, and no one told me it was premiering. It must have slipped my mom’s mind.”
“I’m so much more than that reference photo my sisters showed their plastic surgeon.”
“I’m a Kim — not a Karen … somehow [my mom] just knew. I don’t know how she saw that coming (pause for effect) and not Caitlyn.”
“I’m not running for president, we can’t have three failed politicians in one family,” referencing step-parent Caitlyn Jenner’s run for governor of California and her estranged hubby Kanye West’s short-lived bid to be president of the US.
“Honestly, i’m not even sure how you become one,” she said. “So I asked my mom’s boyfriend, Corey [Gamble].”
‘I married the best rapper of all time,’ she said to applause. ‘The richest black man in America, a talented legit genius who gave me four incredible kids. When I divorce him you have to know it came down to one thing: his personality.
She thanked her late father,Robert Kardashian for “opening up my eyes to racial injustice.” After all, she said, “It’s because of him I met my first black person. Wanna take a stab in the dark on who it was? OJ does leave a mark — or several, or none at all I still don’t know.”
Then poked fun at SNL; “I’m so used to my 360 million followers watching my every move,” she said, sweetly. “How many watch SNL? Like, 10 million? Tonight is a chill intimate night for me.”
Early skits included an Aladdin-themed bit with Pete Davidson (dude is so lucky with the ladies) who she kissed and a star-studded riff on “The Bachelorette,” featuring movie stars John Cena, Chris Rock and Amy Schumer, Chace Crawford (“The Boys”), Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”), NBA baller Blake Griffin of the Brooklyn Nets and real-life bachelor Tyler Cameron
After Cecily Strong asked ;
“So Kim, are you nervous about doing sketch comedy?” Strong asks. “Why? I don’t have to write sketches, do I?” -Kim responds
“And no one else will look as good as me, will they?” Kardashian asks, to which Strong and Halsey insist in unison: “Absolutely not!”
“Then this is so easy!”
Kim had help from A-List friends ;Amy Schumer,Dave Chappelle,Ellen DeGeneres,James Corden and husband Kane West. I think she did pretty good.
