Kim Kardashian Has a Seriously Shady Response to Debra Messing’s ‘SNL’ Diss

The Kardashians are back on TV doing what they do best: unboxing outdated dramas we all ditched months ago.

Case in point: Kim Kardashian’s feud with ‘Will & Grace’ alum Debra Messing, who publicly questioned why the reality TV star was selected to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ ahead of its October 2021 debut.

The first episode of ‘The Kardashians,’ which dropped on Hulu Wednesday night, reveals exactly how the beauty mogul ended up on the late-night sketch show, where she finally sparked a romance with her boyfriend. friend Pete Davidson.

Midway through the episode, Kardashian offered a blunt response to her detractors, including Messing, whom she simply and cheekily referred to as “the ‘Will & Grace’ girl.”

“Listen, I’m the underdog,” the Skims founder said of the backlash over the hosting announcement. “Everyone just thinks I’m a ditz. The girl from ‘Will & Grace’ came out and said she didn’t know why I would be chosen as host. But, it’s like, why do you care? I don’t comment to put people down, especially another woman. If that’s what you think, man, then cool, listen…”

Messing, who has long expressed her desire to appear on “SNL,” initially reacted not so kindly to the news that Kardashian was about to make her hosting debut.

“Why Kim Kardashian? I mean, I know she’s a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, usually, who are artists who are there to promote a movie, TV show, or album launch,” he said. – she writes on Twitter. “Did I miss something?”

At the time, Kardashian remained silent on the matter, but Messing fired off a lot of criticism for her opinion, with fans happily reminding her that “SNL” gave voice to a host of relatively more ready-made hosts. , including Elon Musk and a certain former president.

After Kardashian received rave reviews for her performance, including her deviously blunt opening monologue, in which she poked fun at herself and her famous family, Messing clarified her review.

During an appearance on “The Tamron Hall Show” later that month, the actor explained that she was just “confused” about the choice of accommodation.

“Well, I didn’t mean to troll her, and you know if anyone took it that way, I apologize. It was never my intention. She’s that freak. I mean, you know, he’s a cultural icon,” Messing said.

“I’m someone who grew up on ‘SNL.’ I love comedy, and they’ve had that kind of formula for decades,” she continued. “And I noticed they changed the formula, and I was like, ‘Oh, does she have a new TV show coming out? Does she have a book coming out? Is she in a movie? And she didn’t take anything out. In fact, his TV show had just ended. So, I was just confused.

In the end, Messing said Kardashian won her over, insisting she “supported her” and describing her performance as “incredible.”

Elsewhere in the opening episode of the new Hulu series, Kardashian revealed that she was considering asking her ex-husband Kanye West to serve as musical guest for her “SNL” debut amid their ongoing divorce. but decided not to.

“It would be epic if he were my musical guest. But then, do I want my own moment?” she said, later adding, “It’s my first time, and I kind of want whether it’s about me and not about, ‘How are they going to act towards each other?'”
