Kim Kardashian West is gearing up for her Saturday Night Live hosting debut and is confident that the gig will be effortless.
In a recently surfaced promo, Kim Kardashian West jokes about her Saturday Night Live hosting debut this weekend. The KKW Beauty founder introduces herself and Halsey. Cecily Strong then asks her if she’s “nervous about doing sketch comedy.”
“Why? I don’t have to write sketches, do I?” Kim asks. The SNL cast members reply, “No..”
“Memorize lines?” Kim asks again. “No, there are cue cards,” Halsey replies.
“Everyone else won’t look as good as me, will they?” Kim asks, with Cecily replying, “no, absolutely not.”
“This is so easy,” Kim says with a smile.

In the promo, Cecily asks the two guests if they’d be interested in starting a girl group. “Oh my gosh, this crazy thought just occurred to me in this exact moment right now. Should we start our own girl group?” the comedian asks.
“Absolutely not,” Halsey replies.
“We already said no when you pitched that backstage,” Kim adds.
SNL cast member Ego Nwodim told ET that she is excited to work with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
“We are excited,” she said of the cast. “I can’t speak to what everyone in the cast feels, but Heidi [Gardner] and I have talked and we’ve decided to be honorary Kardashian sisters.”
“It’s just exciting for us to be part of a show where we have someone come in who doesn’t necessarily do what we do and is not into what we do,” she continued. “Then we get to elevate them and make them look good and make them have fun and bring out sides of them that people haven’t otherwise seen. So we’re hopeful.”
Kim Is Turning To Kanye West For Support
Earlier this week, a source told ET that Kim is seeking her ex, Kanye West’s support for her hosting debut.
“Kim and Kanye are in a great place and they always bounce ideas off of each other and look to each other for advice and guidance, and this gig is no exception,” ET’s source said.
Despite their split, Kim and Kanye have remained on good terms. Last month, they were spotted having dinner together. According to the source, Kim is “incredibly excited” for the opportunity to host Saturday Night Live.
“She is so smart and such a professional. She really wants to do the best job possible and ‘wow’ everyone and make them laugh,” the source said. SNL airs live, coast-to-coast, at 11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT on NBC.
