Kim sparked romance rumors with Pete in the following weeks after they were photographed holding hands at Knott’s Scary Farm in California. However, the reality star said the outing came after the pair had previously spent “private” time together at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She recalled their first date: “We just chilled, hung out.”
During her appearance on the podcast, Kim also set the record straight on her relationship timeline with Pete. According to keeping up with the Kardashians alum, she knew the King of Staten Island actor, but they didn’t really connect until after the 2021 Met Gala last September.
“He kinda asked for my number,” Kim shared. “I saw him at the Met and he knew I was hosting SNL but it was not announced yet. He came up to me and we were talking about SNL.”
Kim recalled telling Pete how “nervous” she was about the gig, promoting the comic to offering her phone number for advice.
“I had gloves on and I couldn’t get into my phone,” said Kim, who wore a full look that covered her fingers and face at the Met Gala. As a result, she remembers Pete brushing it off and walking away before he could give her his number. “We never connected or anything until [SNL].”
