NEW YORK — Kim Kardashian West wore a hot pink catsuit and skewered everyone, from her mother’s boyfriend to her estranged husband Kanye, during her first hosting of “Saturday Night Live.”
After her Twitter back-and forth between fans and critics, she opened her monologue Saturday. “It’s been a long time since I had a movie premiere.”
She poked fun at herself more, noting that she’s more then a pretty face.

Simpson was found not guilty of the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994, but a civil court jury found Simpson liable and ordered him pay $33.5 million.
Kardashian West made a joke about Kanye’s unsuccessful bid for the presidency and Caitlyn Jenner’s attempt to become California governor.
“I’m here for the announcement that I am running. She smiled and said, “I’m just kidding.”
Kanye accompanied Kim on her trip to New York for Kim’s SNL appearance. After six years of marriage, she filed for divorce in February. They have been photographed several times together in recent months, having shared four children.
Halsey was a perfect musical guest. She was accompanied by Lindsey Buckingham, who played guitar for one song. Halsey tweeted a picture of herself pumping breastmilk backstage before the show. She gave birth to her daughter in July.
Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian appeared in a few sketches, including one that saw Aidy Bryant and Kim swap bodies.
Kim played a bored judge in a spinoff of “The People’s Court”, parodying her sister Kourtney. She also played Travis Barker, her boyfriend from his lap. She was responsible for Kris, Khloe, and other cast members Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner.
Kardashian West also gave gold tokens to Jesse Williams and John Cena in a sendoff for “The Bachelorette.” Tyler Cameron, Blake Griffin, Amy Schumer and Chris Rock all appeared.
Another sketch featured Kim as Jasmine to Pete Davidson’s Aladdin. The latter was a Disney character who was nervous about the possibility of “doing sex” with the bombshell princess.
