For the first time, the host appeared on stage in a hot pink, velvet catsuit with gloves on and began her monologue, marveling at her gig for the night. “I know. I’m surprised to see me here too,” she said. “When he asked I was like, ‘You want to’ Me to host? Why? I haven’t premiered a film in a very long time.
Though he didn’t have a movie to promote, he certainly had jokes. And those closest to him were not out of bounds.
kardashian west Taking a jibe at her famous siblings, claimed to be a total package: “I’m so much more than that reference photo my sisters showed their plastic surgeons.”
She also took a playful shot at mom Kris Jenner’s much younger boyfriend, Corey Gamble, who is 25 years her junior.
“One thing I’m really proud of is that no one can ever call me a gold digger,” Kardashian West said. “Honestly, I don’t even know how you become one. So I asked my mom’s boyfriend, Corey.”

The reality star/entrepreneur also made a rift about her mom not seeing Caitlyn Jenner’s transition before making a false announcement about running for office. But, it was also just for comedy. “I’m just kidding, guys,” she clarified. “I’m not running for president. We can’t have three failed politicians in one family.” (Kanye West ran for president more in 2020 Caitlyn Jenner ran for governor of California this year.)
“I married the best rapper ever,” Kardashian West began. “Not only that, he’s America’s richest black man, a genius—legal genius who has given me four incredible kids. So when I divorced him you have to know that it came down to just one thing: his Persona.”
But the hardest-hitting jokes involved an athlete who turned out to be a double homicide suspect. First Kardashian West raised her father, the late attorney Robert Kardashian, who was a member of OJ Simpson’s defense team while he was on trial for the 1994 deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
“I credit him for really opening my eyes to racial injustice,” she said. “It’s because of him that I met my first black man. Want to stab in the dark who he was?
“I know it’s weird to remember the first black person you met,” she said, “but OJ doesn’t leave a mark, or many, or at all. I still don’t know.”
