Kim Kardashian: All-pink Balenciaga hinting at her porn tape past?
Kim Kardashian was invited to host Saturday Night Live for the first time on October 9th, making her comedic debut. The reality star was praised for her performance and witty canter. She poked fun at her family, ex-husband Kanye ‘Ye’ West & herself. Kim Kardashian brought both laughs & style to the iconic show.
The Kardashian sister starts off with a bang as she steps out in front of a LIVE audience in an all-pink Balenciaga bodysuit. Vogue describes her entrance, “The style star hit the SNL stage in a hot pink velvet catsuit by Balenciaga that had her fully covered from the turtleneck down to the heels.” The ravishing ensemble accentuated her curves, making her sight for sore eyes.
A hot pink bodysuit is something Kim Kardashian has rocked before, resurrecting the style from the past. Kim has been known to wear all pink tracksuits in the early 2000s and similar get-ups on various occasions. Although, nothing in the past was quite so fabulous as Balenciaga.
Kim K in hot pink isn’t the only thing that was resurrected. Unfortunately, there were admittedly rumors from Ray J’s previous manager claiming he had a sequel sex tape. The rumor made huge gossip waves in regard to new Kardashian porn. Kim mentions her first sex tape in her witty intro, making light of her past.
Kardashian porn superstar
R&B singer Ray J & Kim Kardashian were featured in a sex tape they made together in 2002. The porn company Vivid Entertainment released the film titled, “Kim Kardashian, Superstar” in 2007.
Kim Kardashian tried to sue the company for the footage but ultimately settled on an agreement that both she and Ray J agreed to.
According to PageSix, “On Feb. 21, 2007, Steven Kurtz, an attorney representing Kardashian, files suit against Vivid Entertainment in LA, in an attempt to prevent its release. ‘Kim Kardashian, Superstar’ was released on March 21, 2007, and Kardashian settled the suit with Vivid on April 27, 2007.”
The movie was filmed when Kim Kardashian was in a long-term relationship with Ray J in their early twenties. Kim, at the time, was working for actress & singer Brandy (Ray J’s older sister) as a celebrity stylist.
For Kim’s twenty-third birthday, the couple went on an extravagant vacation to Esperanza Resort in Cabo, Mexico, where they filmed their sexual adventures with a handheld camcorder.
Scandal & fame
After the home video was released to the public, the Kardashian family was finishing their first season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The popularity of the show gave way to the reality star’s sex scandal, motivating everyone to scour the internet for Kardashian porn.
An interview with Ray J’s close friend, Karrine Steffans, explained that the R&B singer thought the sex tape would have a positive effect on his career since he was continuously living in his sister’s shadows. Steffans states, “He thought it was going to bring him wealth, and more fame.”
The sex tape may have helped the Kardashians’ road to fame but it also took an emotional toll on Kim & her family. She makes clear that filming their reality show helped her cope.
The U.S. Sun quoted Kim Kardashian explaining to the Los Angeles Times, “In a way, filming has helped us deal with things, instead of sweeping them under the rug.”
Sex tape sequel
Fast forward to earlier this year, Ray J’s former manager, Wack 100, claimed that he had access to “part two” of the infamous early 2000s Kardashian porn. Wack 100 said he was willing to gift the tape to Kim Kardashian’s ex, Kanye West.
When Ray J heard of the news, he was outraged and quickly denied the rumor. “The claim that there is an unreleased sex tape is unequivocally false,” the singer told Page Six. He added, “It is unfortunate that people make these statements to try and get their fifteen minutes of fame.”
In a post on Instagram, Ray J expressed that he was doing his best to stay off the radar and trying to focus on his personal growth. Such rumors are interrupting his progress and he aims to stay humble and show personal maturity.
Kim Kardashian’s SNL monologue
During Kim Kardashian’s SNL intro, the star made references to her sex tape, making light of her porn past. She stated, “I’m surprised to see me here, too. When they asked me to host, I was like why? I haven’t had a movie premiere in a really long time. I mean actually, I only had that one movie come out, and no one told me it was premiering.”
Raves & rants from Kardashian fans & SNL fans alike agreed that Kim knocked it out of the park! She participated in skits starring side-by-side comedians like Aidy Bryant & Bowen Yang.
Kim Kardashian’s skits included an Aladdin-themed bit with Pete Davidson and a star-studded riff on The Bachelorette, featuring movie stars John Cena, Chris Rock, and Amy Schumer. Other stars included were Chace Crawford (The Boys), Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy), NBA baller Blake Griffin of the Brooklyn Nets, and real-life bachelor Tyler Cameron.
