‘You are a real matchmaker. You wrote the Aladdin sketch for Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian, and you write in a kiss. Look at all the trouble you’ve started,” Stern said.

First of all, Pete is now ensconced in this Kardashian lifestyle. Did he ever come to you and say, “Thank you for writing this I have to make love to this girl and now I’m with her?” asked the radio host.

After revealing that he still hadn’t gotten a thank you, the prankster joked some more, adding, “This is actually the first I hear they’re dating. Is it serious?

Aside from Davidson, comedians Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney also left, which Che also discussed in the interview.

“It’s like working for the police. Everyone says, “I gotta get the fuck out of here.” It’s like a prison yard, everyone says they want to leave. Yet they cannot. It’s hard to do.’

When asked if he’s jealous of his co-stars continuing with their careers, he replied, “Part of me gets jealous if they leave, but part of me would be jealous if I left and they stayed.” You’ll miss it,” adds, “It’s hard to completely walk away.”

Kim hosted Saturday Night Live in October 2021, where she admitted she felt a spark for Pete after that kiss, when they played Jasmine and Aladdin.

“When we kissed I just thought ‘Hmm!'” Kardashian said to Amanda Hirsch as she appeared on her Not skinny but not fat podcast in April.

“It was a podium kiss, but it was still a bit of a punch. It wasn’t like a super, crazy feeling. I was like, “Hmm,” and then I was like, “Wow, I really haven’t kissed anyone else in 10 years, so maybe I’m just stupid and it’s just nothing and it’s just a stage kiss.”‘

The star also recently described how much her younger boyfriend excites her doing the simple things after he offered to buy her cheap ice cream at Rite Aid.

The reality TV star gushed about him on the ninth episode of her Hulu show The Kardashians, revealing that his offer to get Thrifty Rite-Aid ice cream made her “so damn horny.”

Kim was previously married to rapper Kanye West, 41. She filed for divorce from the musician in February 2021, after seven years of marriage and four children.
