Kanye To Bring Kim Along For Saturday Night Live Finale?

Submitted by on April 29, 2013 – 9:26 amNo Comment

Saturday Night Live has a big season finale planned for May 18, including Kanye West serving as musical guest with a rumored surprise appearance from Kim Kardashian also.

While Ben Affleck is the episode’s scheduled host the SNL crew is hoping for ‘Ye to appear in at least one of the skits on the night. Because the show is well-known for non-stop jokes poking fun at Kim, they’re making a concession to appease the rapper by reportedly writing his baby-mother-to-be into the script.

“Kanye as musical guest is a great get for SNL, but of course the writers want to push the envelope and take advantage of it with a Kim Kardashian skit,” an NBC source told Radar Online. “That’s not unusual since her famous family has been spoofed before with some very hilarious and spot-on impersonations of a whining Kim. They have to tread lightly because Kanye hasn’t been happy with all the flack Kim’s been getting about her pregnancy weight gain.

“It’s definitely going to be a challenge. The writers don’t want to piss off Kanye so they’re prepared not to cross the line, but they will go as far as they can,” the source added. “The writers are pushing real hard for an over-the-top skit and the producers are there to reel them right back in if they go too far. Normally the writers have free reign and just go for it, but there has to be some boundaries when your musical guest is Kanye and he’s super sensitive about the constant Kim bashing.

“They’ve come up with a win-win scenario where Kim actually gets a cameo at the end of the skit. That would probably make everyone in Kanye’s camp—and especially Kim—very happy.”
