Featured Video

Keeping Up with the Kardashians, abbreviated KUWTK, and the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL) are two of the most entertaining and popular television shows out there. Audiences have been a part of the Kardashian-Jenner family since October 14, 2007, when the reality series was first aired. Kim Kardashian was already popular by then due to her previous association as a friend and stylist of Paris Hilton. She went on to become a well-known American socialite, model, and businesswoman. However, it wasn’t until KUWTK and SNL clashed that she met the person she would go on to become infatuated with.

Kardashian had a lot to say about Davidson in the episode. “Pete has got to be literally the best human being I’ve ever met. The best heart. People always say, ‘He’s so funny,’ and it has to do with how funny he is. That’s, like, the fourth on my list of why I like him. [He] always wants the best for people, can handle anything, and always does it with grace. He’s really, really thoughtful and humble and genuine. I would say the perfect word to describe Pete is genuine.”
