Kanye West is in New York, and it's to secretly help Kim Kardashian in her debut gig hosting “Saturday Night Live”. The rapper and the reality queen are estranged, but are both in the city as she prepares for the NBC show this Saturday night. Kanye was seen out and about with Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle in the city a few nights ago. And the gossip continues that the former married couple — who are going through a divorce — may be reconciling.
But I hear Kim is nervous about hosting the show, and Kanye is quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes. Does he know what he's talking about? We'll see, as Kim started rehearsals yesterday, after a host dinner Tuesday night with “SNL” guru, creator and producer Lorne Michaels.
