Kanye West is ‘secretly helping’ Kim Kardashian as she prepares to host SNL

Kim Kardashian arrives at the SNL dinner at Lattanzi in New York City

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian in New York over the past few days. She’s in the city all week, because she’s the host of Saturday Night Live this coming weekend. These photos remind me of a thought I’ve had before: paparazzi love Kim. Kim rarely hides. Kim turns every hotel exit into a catwalk. She’s clearly in NYC not only to host SNL, but to be seen, to have fun, to wear ridiculous fashion, and to be photographed constantly. Sometimes, it’s not deep. She’s just having fun. And the fashion is sooooo dumb. Meanwhile, before Kim left for New York, she had dinner with Kanye at Nobu in Malibu. They were seen out together over the weekend, and now we’re getting tons of dumb stories about how Kimye might reconcile and how Kanye is “helping” Kim prepare for SNL, because apparently he’s in New York now too?

Kanye West is in New York to secretly help Kim Kardashian in her debut gig hosting “Saturday Night Live”. The rapper and the reality queen are both in the city as she prepares to host the NBC show this Saturday. The move comes amid gossip that the former married couple — who are going through a divorce — may be reconciling.

A source said, “Kim is nervous about hosting ‘SNL,’ its a big challenge but she is determined to be a success. Kanye is quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show.”

Kardashian, 40, was on Tuesday spotted exiting her Upper East Side hotel clutching a large Balenciaga bag on her way to the NBC studios in Midtown. She is expected to start rehearsals on Wednesday, after a Tuesday night host dinner with “SNL” guru Lorne Michaels.

When did Kanye become some kind of SNL expert? My God. Just let Kim do her thing. I’m not really looking forward to it – I don’t even watch SNL as it airs on Saturday night – but I do think that Kim will probably be a better host than people expect. If Kanye doesn’t f–k it up for her, or demand to be part of the opening monologue, or style her for every skit.

    I will say the one thing Kim has going for her as a host is that expectations are so low that if she just doesn’t completely blow it then people will praise her.

    I have no intention of watching it though. Meh.

  2. Emma says:

    Two of the most self-absorbed and humorless people in the public eye. What could go wrong with hosting a comedy show? I’m sure she will be fine though. It’s funny to think how far she’s come and what a master she (Kris) is at publicity.

    • ME says:

      The SNL writers have a lot of material they can use when it comes to Kim…so I’m guessing the show will be funny…but that will be due to the writers, not Kim. I’m betting her sisters make a cameo and help carry the show. Kim on her own is not fun. Her family carried the reality show too. I do think Kim will make a big announcement during the show. Either she’ll announce she passed the Baby Bar, or she’ll announce her and Kanye are back together. This family never passes up a chance to get publicity…so it’ll be something. Of course Kris will be in the audience yelling “you’re doing amazing sweetie !!!”.

  3. ME says:

    So the family can blame Kanye if Kim fails miserably? They usually like to blame men for everything so…yeah…

  4. Renee says:

    She could tell Kanye no…right? I mean she’s not being held against her will. If she CHOOSES to let him help her, that’s her choice.

  5. Abby says:

    Uhm, I love her outfits in these photos. WHAT IS HAPPENING. I kind of want that crazy coat!

    • k says:

      I came here to say this! I LOVE the all black outfit with the shimmery muppet explosion coat.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      That’s roughly what I was thinking: “Oh no… I really like something KK is wearing.”

      That coat is nuts and I love it.

    • LovesitinNM says:

      Yesss, i am enjoying this too. Artistically it feels like a reference to pandemic times. I’m here for this.

    • Molly Fulton says:

      Yes! I rarely like her style, but I love that coat!

  6. Keri says:

    They may actually be faking a divorce for publicity me thinks now 🤔

  7. Merricat says:

    As if these two do anything “secretly.”

  8. grabbyhands says:

    “Secretly”. It is to laugh – neither of these grifters do ANYTHING secretly.

    I think the divorce was meant to go ahead and then PMK realized that no one was lining up to play the Kim Kardashian Dating Game and that Kanye was getting lots of press from the whole Donda debacle and saw that there was still marrrow to be sucked from that particular bone, so they went back to the thing that was likely to generate attention. And it worked.

    And like someone above said, the bar for her is so low it is in the ground so she’ll have to work hard to screw it up on SNL.

  9. jwoolman says:

    Oh, gosh. Good luck to the writers. Kim doesn’t even play herself convincingly on the Kardashian shows. They are all pretty terrible actors. SNL really doesn’t sound like something within her skill set. I wonder what possessed her to even want to do it?

  10. buenavissta says:

    Holy. I feel sorry for her.

  11. Rice says:

    OMG. They’re gonna reboot Bound 2, aren’t they?

  12. The Recluse says:

    If SNL has a good show, it will in spite of her presence.
