The famous reality TV family was parodied on the comedy series
Kim Kardashian sued herself and her family during a “Saturday Night Live” sketch this weekend.
The sketch shows Kim impersonating her older sister, Kourtney, in a parody courtroom reality series called “People’s Court”. The idea was that this would be the family’s first exclusive deal with Hulu that will see him produce a follow-up to his hit reality TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which ended in June.
As Kourtney, Kim presided over the legal battles within her family. Ever a good game, she was actually joined by her real-life mom and sister, Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian.
first case Khloe Sue Kim, played by “SNL” cast member Heidi Gardner, was covered in her full Met Gala outfit. Khloe was mad at Kim for allegedly stealing her makeup artist. Kris then sued Kylie and Kendall Jenner (who was also played by cast members) for not yet having their own child and “having no drama” respectively.

Kim then lashed out at her older sister, making fun of her PDA-filled relationship with boyfriend Travis Barker (played by Mickey Day). The two sat in the judge’s chair while the announcer took a dig at the former Blink-182 drummer.
As was the case in Kim’s opening monologue, her estranged husband, Kanye West, was also not out of bounds. She presided over a case in which Kanye (Chris Redd) accused Kim (Gardner) of hacking her Twitter. The duo posted several awkward tweets from the rapper, who eventually admitted that he was responsible for each one.

After that, Pete Davidson and Chloe Fineman played Kourtney’s “best friends” Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Granthshala. Foursome was first spotted around New York City after the VMAs in September.
Keenan Thompson capitalizes on his family’s earlier claim to fame playing OJ Simpson, concluding the sketch with the Kardashians asking him why they don’t keep in touch. Simpson was acquitted in 1994 of two counts of the fatal stabbings of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Kim’s father Robert Kardashian helped with the rescue.
