Kim and Pete sparked dating rumors in October after she hosted “Saturday Night Live.”
During an “SNL” skit, they locked lips. On an episode of “The Kardashians,” Kim confessed, “I did ‘SNL,’ and then when we kissed in-scene, it was just a vibe. I was like, ‘Oh, sh*t, maybe I’ve been... Maybe I just need to try something different.’ But Pete does not come to my after-party. Everyone was at my after-party. He does not give me the time of day.”
That didn’t stop Kim. She said, “A few days later, I called the producer at‘SNL’ and I was like, ‘Hey, do you have Pete’s number?’” Kim revealed. “They were like ‘yeah’ and I text him. I wasn’t even thinking like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m gonna be in a relationship with him.’ I was just thinking... I heard about this BDE. I need to get out there. I need to just, like, jump-start my... I was just basically DTF.”
Their relationship got serious enough for her to introduce Pete to her kids! Months ago, Kardashian sat down with Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, revealing how she went about the introduction.
Kim said she talked to sister Kourtney Kardashian, who had been through a similar experience, as well as to “a few therapists.”
Kim explained, “I definitely wanted to wait six months, and that was the marker. It’s different for everyone and different things work for different people. But you just have to do what feels right and try to just be as respectful and cautious as possible.”
