Kim Kardashian is in New York City for her SNL debut and she sure isn’t alone. The 40-year-old socialite and entrepreneur was spotted walking out of her hotel with estranged husband Kanye West in the lead up to her Saturday Night Live debut alongside singer-songwriter Halsey.
Clad in an all-pink ensemble featuring a massive puffy coat and matching gloves, she took her fashion game up a notch with sparkly silver boots and a perfectly matching mini purse, bling in the earrings, and a pair of sunglasses. Kanye West, on the other hand, sported an all-black outfit. Ahead of Kim’s SNL hosting duties on Saturday night, her sister Khloe Kardashian and mother Kris Jenner also checked in NYC.
A source told PEOPLE earlier this week that Kanye West has been giving Kim advice leading up to the October 9 show. Despite having filed for divorce, the two seem to share close friendship with each other.
“She feels a lot of pressure,” the source said. “She wants to wow the audience.”
The source further added that Kim Kardashian is taking NBC gig “very seriously” as she prepares. “She’s both nervous and thrilled,” the source says. “It’s a huge deal for her.”
Daily Mail was told by an insider that Kim has been “laser-focused” and has had “no complaints and no drama.”
TMZ reported, “Kim has been working 20-hour days as her SNL debut nears. Call times have been set for 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. local time, per the outlet, with rehearsals running until 3 a.m. the next day, as indicated by her Instagram Stories.”
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (11:30 pm ET) on NBC. In addition to that, Peacock is going to livestream the episode at 11:30 pm ET/8:30 pm PT.
