The insider said: “Kim has her own camera crew there. They are filming for the family’s Hulu show.”

They revealed Kris, 65, and Khloe, 37, arrived on set on Friday to shoot scenes for the new show and for their cameo sketch on SNL.

The source added that Kim was seriously punctual with rehearsals for the NBC variety show all week and wasn’t a “diva” at all.

“Kim has showed up early every day, with only a few people with her,” they dished.

“No entourage, and no drama. The cast is obsessed with her. They expected a diva and did not get that at all.”

Production sources close to SNL revealed call times for the crew have reportedly been at five in the morning since Monday.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shot scenes for a grueling 22 hours straight on Friday.

After a round of Krispy Kreme donuts, she filmed herself pouting at the camera in a brief clip at 2.22am, writing: “Stillllll on set.”

The E! star called it a day at 3.16am, marking the moment with a photo of her black boots.


“And that’s a wrap! 5.30am till 3.16am,” the mother-of-four wrote on her Instagram Stories.

“I’m so impressed the SNL cast and crew do this weekly! Much respect.”

Kim has also been reportedly getting advice from professional comedians, such as Ellen Degeneres, 63, Amy Schumer, 40, and Dave Chapelle, 48.

She has been working on delivering her funny lines, her comedic timing, and her opening monologue. 

Earlier this week, she made headlines by introducing herself as “Kim Kardashian West” during an SNL teaser – despite her ongoing divorce from Kanye.

The video begins with Kim, who stands in between Halsey, 27, and SNL star Cecily Strong, stating: “Hi. I’m Kim Kardashian West and I’m hosting SNL this week with musical guest Halsey.”

Many fans may be surprised by the SKIMS founder’s choice to introduce herself as Kim Kardashian West, as she filed for divorce from Kanye, 44, back in February.


The former couple – who were married for nearly seven years – share four kids: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.

Kanye was seen in New York this week – just in time to see Kim “roast” him during her debut on the long-running sketch show this weekend.

A source told The Sun earlier this week that Kim “did give restrictions” when it came to writing about her-ex husband.

“There is a planned Kanye sketch pending approval from him,” they spilled.

The source added that Kim is working with the rapper to approve of the sketches before they get her official stamp of approval. 

“Kim is running a few things by him first before she gives it the green light. 

“That’s where she’s being the most careful because if he hates it, they could cut the whole skit,” the insider said.
