Kim Kardashian’s sex tape woes come to an end in ‘Live From New York’

In the first two episodes of The Kardashians, Kim learned a manager of her ex-boyfriend, Ray J., was threatening to publish unreleased footage of her sex tape. She called her lawyers, and they immediately began working on stopping that from happening. However, it was her ex-husband Kanye West who saved the day. He surprised Kim before she went on to host Saturday Night Live when he showed up directly from LA with the sex tape. Instead of immediately deleting all evidence of the sex tape so they wouldn’t need to worry about this type of extortion anymore, Kim, Kanye, Kris, and various assistants joined hands as Khloé said a prayer thanking Jesus for all the blessings bestowed upon them.

Kris Jenner forces everyone to look at the apartment building she once lived in

While Kim continued to prepare for her big night in “Live From New York,” Kris forced Khloé and Corey to take a walk down memory lane with her. Khloé runs into her “glam squad” early in their walk and dips out early. She can’t take any more of her mom reminiscing. 

Kris explains to the cameras, “I walked the streets of New York 45 years ago. I went to flight attendant school and then they assigned me to New York. Robert [Kardashian] and OJ [Simpson] met me at the airport because they had just flown in from Montreal where they watched Bruce Jenner win the gold medal.”

Finally, Kris and Corey arrive at the apartment building where she once lived. They took a quick look at the building and then headed back to get ready for Saturday Night Live.
