Kim Kardashian Takes Digs At Kanye West’s ‘Personality’ & OJ Simpson On ‘SNL’s Opening Monologue

Kim Kardashian Takes Digs At Kanye West’s ‘Personality’ & OJ Simpson On ‘SNL’s Opening Monologue

Kim Kardashian’s opening monologue was full of zingers, including a shot at former family friend OJ Simpson!


Kim Kardashian opened Saturday Night Live with a bang! The 40-year-old stunned in a barbie pink crushed velvet turtleneck and pants as she opened the show, which included plenty of zingers — including some cringe worthy ones at her ex Kanye West, 44. While she was seemingly about to announce a presidential run, she quipped she was “just kidding” because “we can’t have three failed politicians in one family” (the other being Caitlyn Jenner).

“I married the best rapper of all time. He’s also the richest black man in America who gave me four amazing children. So when I divorce him, that means it comes down to just one thing….personality,” she added, at one point adding that she’s “not a gold digger” but would ask her mom’s boyfriend Corey Gamble what that’s like. Yikes!

Towards the end of the monologue, she also reflected on the “first Black person” she ever met: her former family friend OJ Simpson. “OJ does leave a mark. Or several. Or none at all! I still don’t know,” she joked, making a subtle reference to his past murder trial involving the late Nicole Brown Simpson. Kim didn’t hold back on making fun of herself, either — throwing one joke in about her past sex tape with ex Ray J! “I only had that one movie come out — and no one even told me it was premiering. It must have slipped my moms mind,” she said near the top of the monologue.

The reality star was confirmed to be hosting the long running NBC series in September after weeks of rumors — particularly after Kim was spotted having lunch with show runner Lorne Michaels and her mom (and manager) Kris Jenner, 65, at the legendary Polo Lounge. “OMFG no turning back now!!!! LOL I’m hosting SNL!!!!!! @nbcsnl,” she tweeted on Sept. 22, including an image that also confirmed Halsey, 27, as the musical guest.

Ahead of the big announcement, HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY reported that the KKW Beauty founder had been “asked” to appear on season 47. “Kim was asked to be a host for SNL and there was even discussion of having Kanye be the musical guest for the first episode of the season,” the source told at the time. “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.”

Kim filed for divorce from husband Kanye West, 44, in February after seven years of marriage. The Yeezy designer and the SKIMS founder have seemingly remained on good terms as they continue to co-parent their four kids : North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2. Kim was also on hand to support ‘Ye at his three Donda listening parties, including one in Chicago where she curiously participated in a wedding dress. Notably, the exes haven’t confirmed if they’re reconciling — but they sure know how to get fans talking.

Fortunately for you guys, we are THE PLUG so we have an exclusive preview clip for your viewing pleasure! This week, in the clip below, Amber and Siir Brock call out N.O.R.E. and Neri for doing the least work at camp. In the clip, Neri describes how N.O.R.E, proposed but complains he never actually got down on one knee. After her husband jokes that she took too long to figure out what was going on, Neri responds that he could have used the time to get down on one knee — only to have them both ultimately laugh off the issue. As a result, Amber questions why the couple is there since they don’t seem to really have problems in their marriage. Siir Brock takes things a step further saying that he feels N.O.R.E. and Neri have done the least work on their relationship, pointing out that Monie Love gets super vulnerable in sessions. He then asks N.O.R.E. to be honest about whether he’s ever told Neri to “Shut the f*** up”… WHOA.

Check out the clip below:

What do you think? Were Brock and Amber fair to ask N.O.R.E and Neri why they’re not being more vulnerable? Or do you think N.O.R.E and Neri are just using boundaries to protect the sanctity of their marriage.

Christie Brinkley Reveals If She’d Return To Broadway 10 Years After Playing Roxie Hart In ‘Chicago’

Could we see Christie Brinkley return to the stage once more? The 67-year-old stunner revealed to HL if she would do another Broadway show!

Remember when Christie Brinkley played Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway… and all that jazz? The iconic top model just helped the beloved show celebrate its 25th anniversary on Broadway and it had us all wondering if we would ever see Christie’s name in marquee lights once again! “I doubt it! I mean, I never say never, because you never know. You never know, but it’s a real commitment and a rigorous schedule,” the 67-year-old told HollywoodLife.com in an EXCLUSIVE interview at the Footwear News Achievement Awards on Nov. 30. “When I do something… I would an eight show a week, personally, you know, I don’t come in and do like, easy stuff! I would do it all!”

Recall, Christie marked her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Bob Fosse‘s Chicago in 2010, and was due to reprise the role for a short, four-week engagement in 2019 on the national tour, which was cancelled due to the pandemic. “When Producer Barry Weissler offered me the chance to come back to Chicago The Musical, I thought I was dreaming…but it was actually my dream coming true…AGAIN!” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “I am honored and overjoyed to reprise the role of Roxie Hart and l am thrilled to get to work with the consummate professionals and artists who bring this iconic Kandor and Ebb masterpiece to life for appreciative audiences 8 times a week. It is a privilege I cherish, and an adventure.”

In talking to HL, Christie couldn’t help but gush over the current star playing Roxie Hart, Ana Villafañe. “Oh she is incredible! She has so much nuance and you can tell, in the moment, she’s always thinking, just like Roxie does in the show. I really enjoyed watching her, she was incredible,” the model recalled. Christie watched Ana in action as Roxie while celebrating the show’s 25th anniversary, during which she also showed she’s still got it (duh!) — kicking up her legs and throwing some jazz hands while lighting up the Empire State Building.

7 Benefits of Orgasm You May Not Know About

7 Benefits of Orgasm You May Not Know About

Some people take orgasms for granted, but researchers say experiencing the big O has more benefits than just enhancing your pleasure.

Women who experience daily orgasms know that the big O comes with health benefits such as sleep aid and pain relief.

“Some people orgasm multiple times, some once, and some none, and that’s all totally normal,” says Rosara Torrisi.

Torrisi, a certified sex therapist and founding director of the Long Island Institute of Sex Therapy, tells Health.com that orgasms, particularly masturbating, can reveal what’s normal and abnormal about your sexual health.

“It’s one of the few times people, especially people with vulvas, give themselves permission to touch their genitals,” Torrisi says.

The following are seven health benefits of orgasms.
 

1. Mood enhancer

Orgasms release a flood of feel-good hormones that help you calm down and relieve stress, Kate White, MD, MPH, tells Health.

According to Dr. White, these hormones include:

  • Oxytocin, aka the “love hormone,” which also aids with baby bonding.
  • Dopamine, released by the reward and pleasure centers of the brain.
  • Endorphins, the “natural opiates” that induce a sense of euphoria and reduce stress.
  • Serotonin, which helps regulate mood, appetite, and sleep.
  • Prolactin, that initiates milk production after pregnancy and plays a role in bonding.

 

2. Orgasm helps you connect with your body

Touching yourself helps to reveal body changes that you may not know about, such as yeast infections or lesions on your genitals. “It is really helpful to know what your body feels like, looks like, and even smells like,” Logan Levkoff, PhD, tells Health, “because if you don’t know what the norm is for your body, it’s really difficult to identify when something is off.”

3. Self love teaches you what feels good for you

Most women can reach intense orgasms by themselves — without the help of a partner. Some women are okay with that because they know what feels good for them.

“A lot of people want to have orgasms consistently from penetration, and the truth is that some people can come consistently from that, but most people can’t,” Dr. White tells Health.com.

Dr. Levkoff says self-pleasuring without a partner can be empowering. “Know that you don’t have to rely on someone else to make you a sexual being or to make you feel a certain way.”
 

4. Orgasm strengthens relationships

Beyond having a relationship with yourself, orgasms can bond you tighter with your mate – who you don’t have to depend on for pleasure.
 

5. Orgasm improves sleep

Everyone knows orgasms improves sleep. This is achieved through sex hormones that are released in abundance before, during, and after the big O.

In edition to hormones, the muscles relaxing after the big O is similar to muscle relaxation techniques.

“Some people also build a habit of orgasming before bed, so it’s a part of their sleep routine,” Torrisi explains.
 

6. Orgasm maintains pelvic floor muscles

Frequent orgasms can be as beneficial as cardio exercises. An orgasm is a series of muscle contractions, that maintain or strengthen your pelvic floor, says Levkoff.
 

7. Orgasm relieves pain

Orgasm-induced hormones like oxytocin and endorphins act as natural painkillers, says Dr. White.

“Those pleasurable feelings tend to dull feelings of pain,” Levkoff says, noting this may be why some people find that orgasms relieve menstrual cramps.
