The actress and political commentator voiced out her doubts as to the eligibility of the socialite and beauty mogul Kim Kardashian being added to SNL’s hosting roster.
“Why Kim Kardashian?” Messing wrote in a tweet on Wednesday, “I mean, I know she is a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch. Am I missing something?”
She’s not the only one to feel skeptical regarding Kim K’s upcoming hosting gig on SNL, as the internet went crazy when the announcement was made. Nevertheless, Kim Kardashian shared her joy to land the hosting gig, writing, “no turning back now!!!”
Kim will be hosting the long-running comedy sketch on October 9 alongside Halsey, who is announced as the musical guest.
However, the reality star is certainly not the first non-performer to land the hosting gig, as former U.S. President Donald Trump hosted the show several times back in 1991. Basketball legend Michael Jordan also hosted the show. The most recent is Elon Musk, whose hosting was not without its own controversy.

For the upcoming season 47, Kim Kardashian, along with Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis and Rami Malek, were announced as hosts. The latest season of the NBC sketch comedy show will premiere on October 2, and will livestream on Peacock for the first time.
Debra Messing’s skeptical comment was not without its own drama, and while some fans were eager to agree with the “Will & Grace” actress, others did not find her questioning justified.
Let’s see, you have 600,000 ish Twitter followers and Kim has 70 million,” a fan responded on Twitter. “Maybe that should be your first clue. Obviously she has a bigger platform than 95% of the celebrities out there and SNL is smart enough to get, no surprise you’re not.”

Another wrote: “You’re being petty sorry can’t agree with you. She has worked her ass off and created an empire you know it takes dedication and hard work to get there. Why belittle her efforts I do not see how that helps anyone. Everyone deserves a chance.”Hosts and musical guests for this season include Owen
Wilson and Kacey Musgraves on the October 2 premiere; Rami Malek and Young Thugs on October 16; and recent Emmy winner Jason Sudeikis and Brandi Carlile on October 23.
