“I’m so so proud of my amazing daughter Kim!!! She absolutely crushed one of the hardest stand-up gigs in the world!!!! She is an absolute ROCKSTAR and I’m so proud of this accomplishment!!! Not only was she beautiful, funny, outrageous and didn’t take herself too seriously, but she took this on with such importance and focus.
She was calm, kind, smart, funny, hilarious and vulnerable. She showed that she is always in on the joke and really knows how to be stunningly fabulous and knows how to make fun of herself at the same time. She did her monologue with the best mix of LOVE, vulnerability, self depreciation, humor, beauty, intelligence and kindness.
Her work ethic is second to none. Always a team player and always including her family in everything she does. Wow. Kim, you nailed it!!!!! I am exploding with pride and excitement for the most amazing week. Thank you to Lorne Michaels for including Kim and Khloé and I in this epic show and for your kindness, generosity and for always treating us like family.
Congratulations my Kim I love you so much my girl. Xo P. S . And who knew she could rap?! “ she added.
How Kim Kardashian’s Saturday Night Live Show Went?
Kim Kardashian who has been hailed for her performance on the Saturday Night Live show, which saw her throwing comedic jabs about O.J. Simpson and offering a take on what ultimately drove her and her ex, Kanye West, to their divorce, is going it for her first time and looked anything like an amateur.
After discussing her awareness around her “privilege,” Kardashian West noted that she has made “getting wrongly accused people out of jail” a personal mission, before speaking about how her father Robert Kardashian has been an influence on social work.
“My father was and still is such an influence and inspiration to me and I credit him with really opening up my eyes to racial injustice. It’s because of him that I met my first black person,” Kardashian West said to laughs before launching into a joke about O.J. Simpson. “Want to take a stab in the dark at who it was?”
The influencer and reality TV star went further, adding, “I know it’s sort of weird to remember the first black person you met but OJ does leave a mark — or several. Or not at all. I still don’t know.”
Later in her monologue, she addressed her divorce from Kanye, but started out by calling the rapper the best “of all time” before noting that he’s “the richest black man in America” and a “talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids.”
“When I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality,” she said. “I know that sounds mean but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine.”
At the start of her monologue, Kardashian West addressed her infamous leaked sex tap, sharing that she was also surprised to be hosting, and had asked the SNL team why considering “I haven’t had a movie premiere and a really long time.”
“I mean actually, I only had that one movie come out and no one told me it was even premiering. It must have slipped my mom’s mind,” she said.
Kardashian West also made a direct reference to her ex-husband and Caitlyn Jenner’s recent and failed attempts at running for political office, jokingly telling the audience, “Now I know we’re divided as a country, but I love America to come together, which is why I’m here to announce that I’m running for…”
That’s when the reality star quickly cut herself off, adding, “I’m just kidding. I’m not running for president. We can’t have three failed politicians in one family.”
Later in the show, Kardashian West took direct comedic aim again at her divorce and O.J. Simpson in a “The People’s Kourt” skit, playing her sister Kourtney Kardashian. As she played judge to a case involving Kanye, played by Chris Redd, and herself — played by Heidi Gardner dressed in her full-body black Met Gala ensemble.
