Kim Kardashian is set to host NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” for the first time this weekend. The ultra-famous billionaire TV personality may be nervous about her appearance, but she has the best help in the industry.
Kim Kardashian has been photographed around New York City multiple times as she prepares for her “SNL” debut. However, although the mogul looks confident strutting her stuff on the streets, reports claim that isn’t the case on stage.
Kardashian is notoriously very reserved when it comes to making herself look silly on stage. Thankfully, she has enlisted the help of her estranged husband to make sure that her “SNL” appearance is successful.
Fans of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” know that Kardashian can have extreme stage fright, despite being ultra-famous. The TV personality was once even kicked off stage during a Prince concert because she refused to dance.
Thus, many have wondered how the “KUWTK” star will manage as a host on “Saturday Night Live.” The sketch comedy show often requires guest hosts to let loose on stage for a successful comedic show.
Actress Debra Messing was among those who questioned Kardashian’s ability to host the sketch comedy series. She took to Twitter to express her confusion at the show’s decision to have the TV personality host.
Shockingly, Kardashian also expressed her own concerns about being on “SNL.” She shared an image of a floral arrangement she was gifted when the news of her hosting broke and revealed she was feeling the pressure in the caption.
Although Kardashian has recently been spotted looking sharp in stylish Balenciaga outfits, sources reveal her bravado may be all for show. One source confirmed that the KKW Beauty founder is still feeling uneasy:
“Kim is nervous about hosting ‘SNL,’ it’s a big challenge, but she is determined to be a success.”
The pressure may also be weighing heavily on Kardashian since “SNL” ratings have gone down in the past few years. Reports have even claimed she was selected in hopes of boosting viewership for the new season.
Thankfully, Kardashian was once happily married to one of the most confident performers in the world. As a result, she has called in none other than Kanye West as her reinforcement to ensure the best results possible. A source revealed:
“Kanye is quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show.”
West has appeared on “SNL” as a musical guest on numerous occasions, so his experience will be helpful. Kardashian’s first “SNL” appearance airs on Saturday, October 9, featuring Halsey as the musical guest.
