According to a report from KNEWZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is allegedly "in high level talks" at NBC to host the first episode of season 47 of Saturday Night Live on October 2.

A source told the news outlet that, “Lorne Michaels was recently spotted at the Beverly Hills Hotel deep in discussions with Kim, and her momager-manager, Kris [Jenner]. Lorne wants her to do the show.”

If negotiations work out, the SKIMs creator would join a small group of stars who are not entertainers but have taken a stab at hosting the long-running sketch comedy show.

In the past, the show has brought on entrepreneur and businessman Elon Musk to host, as well as former president Donald Trump, and even Kim's friend, socialite and businesswoman Paris Hilton back in the early 2000's.

As OK! previously reported, although the former power couple is continuing with divorce proceedings, West was seen out shopping in Los Angeles wearing black sweats, a baggy t-shirt and most notably his wedding ring.

Rumors have also swirled about the two reconciling as Kim has attended both of West's 'Donda' listening events at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium along with their children.
