Kim Kardashian Hosting ‘SNL’ For The 1st Time On Oct. 9 With Returning Musical Guest Halsey

Live from New York, it’s Saturday night! Season 47 of Saturday Night Live is well underway, and show runner Lorne Michaels has yet to disappoint with his choice of show hosts and musical guests. This week, Kim Kardashian, 40, is set to take the stage at Studio 8H alongside musical guest Halsey, 27.

The SKIMS founder follows season opener Owen Wilson, 52, who hosted on Oct. 2 with musical guest Kacey Musgraves, 33. Just like Kim, the Wedding Crashers star also made his hosting debut in season 47, chalking up the long wait to nerves. “I get really nervous with public speaking. I’ve never done any of those commencement addresses or Saturday Night Live just because I get too nervous,” he explained on a hike to friend Kevin Nealon in a YouTube video. Owen slayed it, and even had some help from his brothers Andrew, 57, and Luke, 50, during his opening monologue.

Kim Kardashian Is Hosting ‘SNL’ For The 1st Time

After weeks of speculation, Kim was confirmed to be hosting the Oct. 9 show via SNL‘s official Twitter account on Sept. 22. The KKW Beauty founder will make history as SNL‘s first-ever reality star to serve as host on the long running NBC series.

Kim was rumored to be hosting the show after she was spotted enjoying a lunch with Lorne and her mom Kris Jenner, 65, at the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge back in August. Shortly after the meeting, HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY reported that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was “asked” to appear on SNL this season.

“Kim was asked to be a host for SNL…The desire is for Kim to host and potentially have some family members take part in skits or the opening monologue. If they can’t figure it out for the season debut, they still want her to do a hosting spot sometime during the season,” the insider told HL.

“OMFG no turning back now!!!! LOL,” Kim said via Twitter after the announcement was made, adding, “I’m hosting SNL!!!!!!”

Kim has been fodder for SNL humor in the past; notably impersonated by former cast member Nasim Pedrad a whopping 13 times between 2009 and 2014. Nicki Minaj also delivered her take on Kim in a Dec. 2014 episode when she was musical guest.

In the days leading up to the big show, Kim has turned heads in some seriously stylish outfits heading to and from rehearsals. The Armenian beauty stayed with her Balenciaga kick, sporting a silver tinsel coat over a tight black catsuit (including the pant-leggings she has worn several times, including to the Met Gala) for one outfit on Oct. 5. She bundled up in a puffy jacket for another, adding a dash of color with a bright pink suit on Oct. 7. Her sisters have yet to pop-up at the studio, however, her close friends Stephanie Shepherd and Tracy Romulus have been spotted with her daily.

Notably, Kim’s hosting debut comes amid her split from husband Kanye West, 44. The makeup mogul and Yeezy designer tied the knot back in 2014, snd share four kids together: North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2. Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in Feb. 2021 citing irreconcilable differences. Recently, she has shown support for Kanye’s 10th album Donda: Kim was present for two back-to-back listening parties in Atlanta, curiously wearing a wedding dress for the third in his native of Chicago.

The appearance also comes hot off the heels of Kim and her family shooting their new reality series for Disney-owned streamer Hulu. The KarJenner clan wrapped their long running E! series Keeping Up With The Kardashians after 20 seasons earlier this year.

The ‘SNL’ Musical Guest Tonight Is Halsey

Halsey returns to Studio 8H for the fifth time on Oct. 9. The appearance comes just five weeks after the release of her latest album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power. The project includes her last two singles, “I Am Not a Woman, I’m a God” — which was produced by Nine Inch Nails members Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross — as well as track “You Asked for This.”

The album is accompanied by a new documentary of the same name, set to begin streaming on HBO Max starting on Oct. 7. “I’ve always wanted to make that kind of a record that was unapologetic and just didn’t care about chart success or trends or whatever,” Halsey, née Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, said on Australian radio show triple j Breakfast in August, describing the albums theme as “the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth.” The New Jersey native gave birth to her first child Ender Ridley with partner Alev Aydin on July 14.

“5th times the…charm? See you sooooon,” Halsey posted via social media after the announcement.

Halsey last appeared on SNL in Jan. 2020 when she performed “You Should Be Sad” and “Finally // Beautiful Stranger.” Her first-ever appearance on the series was in Jan. 2018 when she performed her breakout single “Him & I” with G-Eazy. She one again appeared in Feb. 2019 when she pulled double duty as both host and musical guest.

What Time Is ‘SNL’ On?

Saturday Night Live airs at 11:35 p.m. PST/EST and 9:30 p.m. MT on local NBC affiliates. The series can also be streamed live on the Peacock app.

Lauren also shared a sweet tribute to mark the end of her one year run. “What an incredible year spent with incredible people. I will always be so grateful,” the comedian began. “Cheers to all the cast members past, present, & future…so proud to be/have been a part of this amazing family. These three letters will always bring joy to my heart… SNL, I love you,” she also said.

‘Sister Wives’: Christine Says She Doesn’t ‘Trust’ Kody In Their ‘Dysfunctional’ Marriage

‘Sister Wives’: Christine Says She Doesn’t ‘Trust’ Kody In Their ‘Dysfunctional’ Marriage

Kody and Christine Brown continue to ‘struggle’ in their marriage on the Dec. 5 episode of ‘Sister Wives.’

Things did not get better in Kody Brown and Christine Brown’s marriage on the Dec. 5 episode of Sister Wives. Although the episode started out on a positive note, with the family finally deciding how they would divide up their Coyote Pass property, Christine’s heart still wasn’t in it. She was still set on moving back to Utah, although that did not seem to be in the cards for Kody and the rest of his wives.

“Kody and I are struggling more than ever before,” Christine admitted. “The thought of living here on the property and seeing him in full functioning marriages — do I want that? No. The best I can give today is just to pretend.” Kody could tell that something was off with Christine, so he asked her to meet him on her piece of property to talk things out. Christine explained that she was upset with Kody for originally being “giddy” about the prospect of moving back to Utah, only to then say he didn’t want to when the conversation came up with the other wives.

“We want different things in our relationship,” she said in a confessional. “We want a different kind of relationship. I don’t even want to talk to him right now, to be honest with you.” Kody apologized fo shutting the conversation about Utah down in front of the other wives, and admitted to being “stoic” about it.

Although Christine thanked Kody for his apology, deep down, she wasn’t feeling it. “That’s a stupid word he’s using. Stoic? Bulls***. He was an ass,” she ranted. “Whatever, you wish you were stoic. I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to talk to him. I don’t trust a word that’s coming out of his mouth. I don’t believe him that he’s sorry.”

Christine and Kody continued to go in circles, as she explained that she wanted to be in Utah because she had more family and a sense of “community” there. However, Kody tried to convince her that she could be just as happy in Arizona. “I feel like I’m constantly dealing with a situation with Christine where I can’t make her happy,” he admitted. “She won’t be happy with anything and now I’m starting to wonder what’s going on.”

When Kody pushed Christine to tell him why she really wanted to be back in Utah, she shut down. She broke down in tears and eventually walked off before they could finish the conversation. “Why would I want to live on the same property with a dysfunctional marriage where right over there he’s got a full functioning marriage?” Christine wondered. “Who in her right mind would ever want to live like that? If mine and Kody’s relationship were better and we both wanted the same type of relationship — a full marriage — I could handle staying here a lot easier.”

The issues in Kody and Christine’s relationship were heightened amidst COVID-19, as well, due to Christine traveling during the pandemic, despite Kody asking her not to. However, her latest reason for travel was so that the pair’s teen daughter, Ysabel Brown, could get the back surgery she needed in New Jersey. One day before the surgery, Kody and all the wives got together so Christine could explain exactly what would be happening.

Due to the procedure, recovery and quarantine rules, Christine, Ysabel and her other children would be away for more than six weeks. Kody opted not to travel to be with them for the surgery due to COVID. Ysabel was upset by his decision, but told him she was okay with it. Meanwhile, Christine was excited for a break from her marriage that was falling apart. “Kody and I are not getting better,” she said. “It’s been bad for a long time. I would love it if Kody could come for Ysabel’s sake, but for me, I don’t care that he’s not going to be there. I think us being separated for this month might be good.”

This episode was filmed at the end of summer 2020, but clearly, Kody and Christine were never able to get past their issues. As fans know, Kody and Christine opted to end their marriage in the fall of 2021.

‘Yellowstone’ Recap: Beth & Rip Plan To Marry Soon & Jamie Confronts Garrett

Published

on

Kelly Reilly

As Beth and Rip made marriage plans, Jamie had an intense discussion with Garrett over his role in the Dutton attacks during the December 5 episode of ‘Yellowstone.’ Plus, the Lloyd and Walker tension came to a head.

Jimmy is slowly but surely getting acquainted with his life at the Four Sixes. He’s found a place to stay — inside this time — while working on the ranch. He gets up every day to the same routine, hoping that he made the right move in leaving Yellowstone.

Back in Montana, Beth is worried over John not calling her. She knows something is up. Beth asks Rip to take her on a ride. “Beth, why can’t you tell me what you’re thinking?” Rip asks. She’s always telling him what they’re doing and none of the why. He then spends his whole day thinking about what she’s up to.

Beth & Summer Fight In Front Of John

Beth heads to the main house. She walks in and finds Summer in John’s shirt in the kitchen. Naturally, Beth doesn’t take it well. When Summer asks who Beth is, Beth responds with a knife in her hand, “I’m the b*tch about to stab you in the stomach.” Beth thinks Summer is a hooker, while Summer thinks Beth is John’s wife.

John walks in and tries to settle things between the two women. Summer provokes Beth by thinking Beth got a boob job. “Actually, God gave me these for free. Looks like he gave me yours too,” Beth quips. John tells Beth to stop arguing with Summer. Summer decides to kiss John in front of Beth. John says he’s too old for all of this and tells Beth to be nice to Summer.

He doesn’t think Beth staying for breakfast is a good idea. Beth says she wouldn’t miss this for the world. Breakfast doesn’t improve the situation. Summer’s a vegan and doesn’t eat gluten. Things get tense again, which only riles Beth up. John tells Beth to treat Summer with respect. That’s never going to happen. As Beth walks out, she says to Summer, “I hope you die of ass cancer.” Summer makes a note that Beth is a little too old to be jealous of the girl her father is seeing and John agrees.

Meanwhile, Kayce and Monica check out a new house. As Monica talks with the realtor, Kayce watches Tate playing with a dog outside. Monica and Kayce realize that this is their house. They even decide to keep the stray dog, too.

Garrett Admits He Planned The Attack

Jamie finally goes to confront his father about Riggins. He’s got a gun and tells his father to stand with his hands up. Garrett mentions that this won’t be the first murder Jamie has covered up. “You tried to kill my family,” Jamie says. Garrett replies, “That’s not your family. This is your family. That baby is your family.”

Garrett believes he’s given Jamie the strength to get away from the Duttons. While Jamie has no love for Beth, he believes in his heart that Jamie is his brother. “You miss what you thought you were,” Garrett says. Garrett doesn’t think there is such a thing as right or wrong, fair or moral. “Those are words men invented to scare and shame other men from taking back what they’ve stolen,” Garrett continues. “John Dutton used you. Just like he used all his children to scare and shame others so nobody takes back what he stole.”

Garrett tells Jamie that he has “no agenda but giving you back the family that you never had and the legacy he robbed from you.” Garrett fully admits that he tried to kill the Duttons. “I’ll keep trying till I get it right,” Garrett warns. “That’s how much I love you.” Jamie breaks down while Garrett comforts him. This is not going to end well.

Monica Gets Jealous

Kayce is called to look into a situation by Rainwater and Mo. Kayce crosses paths with a beautiful woman who used to wrangle at the ranch. There’s a moment between Kayce and this woman that Monica definitely notices. When they get into the car, Monica asks Kayce about the woman. She’s clearly a little jealous. “Not my type, baby,” Kayce says to Monica. Tate breaks the tension by saying the woman was “one hot tamale.”

Later, Monica and Kayce are in bed together. Monica can’t sleep because she’s “thinking about your little b*tch in a tank top.” That makes Kayce laugh. “You’re mine,” Kayce tells Monica. Before a passionate makeout session, Monica tells Kayce, “I could kill you.”

Lloyd has taken a liking to Carter. He teaches Carter how to rope. Lloyd advises Carter to apologize to Beth like he means it. Carter tells Lloyd to take his own advice. “I didn’t say sorry,” the very stubborn Lloyd says. Lloyd ends up going too far at the bunkhouse. He smashes Walker’s guitar and stabs Walker! The men of the bunkhouse put Lloyd in handcuffs and render him unconscious. As the chaos unfolds, Mia grabs her stuff and leaves.

Beth & Rip Make Marriage Plans

As this is all happening, Beth and Rip have a very important conversation. Beth tells Rip that she’s looking for a place where she can become Rip’s wife. “I want a place with no memories… a place where nothing happened until we happened,” she says. Rip tells Beth that he knows just the place. Their moment is interrupted when a car pulls up. Ryan brings a handcuffed Lloyd to Rip.

The vet is called to help Walker with the stab wound. Walker just wants the knife out of his chest. Laramie ends up doing as he asks and blood goes everywhere, but he’s going to make it.

John is called in to advise on what to do with Lloyd. Lloyd been enforcing the rules at the ranch for 30 years so what does this look like to everyone else. John decides to give him one more chance. One more mistake and Lloyd knows exactly what will happen. However, changes are coming. John puts his foot down and orders no more girls in the bunkhouse. Lloyd and Walker are going to fight it out. “Rip, I want you to make an example out of the last man standing,” John says.

Lloyd & Walker Got At It One Last Time

Rip orders everyone to the bunkhouse. He tells Teeter and Laramie to leave. The guys have to come with him. Lloyd and Walker go into the ring. A brutal fight breaks out between them. Rip makes Carter watch the whole thing. A chunk of time goes by and the fight is still going. John begins to step into the ring, but Rip assures John that he’s going to finish this.

Rip goes up to Lloyd and hugs him. “I love you,” Rip tells Lloyd, before punching him right in the gut. “This is for your protection,” Rip adds. He breaks Lloyd’s fingers right then and there. Lloyd helps Walker up. They’re both brought in front of John. “So we understand each other?” John asks. They both agree. Off to the side, a weary Rip says over and over, “F**k.”

After witnessing what went down, Carter says, “I know what I want to be when I grow up.” He points at John. “I want to be him.”

Following his emotional confrontation with Garrett, Jamie makes his way to his office. He has a visitor, the new head of operations for Market Equities. Beth is waiting for him. “You’re going to run everything, aren’t you?” Jamie asks Beth. Beth has the perfect Beth response, “Everything, you miserable motherf**ker.”
