When Kim Kardashian hosted "Saturday Night Live" back in October, she humorously shaded nearly everyone in her family. However, she insists that she could have gone in a lot harder.
"Everyone in the family was just like, 'You can do whatever you want,'" she said in an interview with i-D magazine for its Winter 2021 issue.
Still, Kim pulled up on the reins a little in regard to her sister Khloe Kardashian's much-maligned off-and-on romance with Tristan Thompson, who recently fathered a child, his third, with a personal trainer (a fling that occurred while he was still exclusive with Khloe).
"Everyone was really easy and game for me to do whatever I wanted. Although I had a really funny joke about Tristan and Khloe that I took out – I could've maybe gone further," she said. "But everyone was like, 'Use me. Do whatever you want. This is your time.' They were down. That was super cool."
The jokes, Kim noted, were all in good fun, and her family knew that.
"I think people might not get that we're absolutely in on the joke. We always have been. It is what it is," she said. "And so, I was just like, 'Listen, if I'm going to do this, I want you guys to know we're in on this. This is what we talk about when we're at home.' We have a sense of humor. We roast each other as a family all day long. None of us are sensitive to it."
She added, "I wanted people to see a part of my personality that all my friends know, that everyone close to me knows. But you know, 'SNL' was a completely different audience for me. It was my opportunity. I wanted to show people that this is funny, and this is a big side of my personality too. And it was fun."
