  • Kim Kardashian kept a sex tape joke in her "SNL" monologue against Amy Schumer's advice.

  • Schumer said the "SNL" monologue "will live on" perhaps longer than Kardashian's early 2000s scandal.

  • "I want to say things that feel good coming out of my mouth," Kardashian explained her logic.

On Thursday's episode of "The Kardashians," Kim Kardashian met with her friend Amy Schumer to get advice on her monologue for "Saturday Night Live," which she hosted on October 9, 2021.

Based on this conversation, we know Kardashian went against Schumer's advice by mentioning her infamous sex tape during her "SNL" debut.

Kardashian said in an interview for the show that she worked on most of the monologue with comedian Michelle Wolf, per Dave Chappelle's advice, but she wanted Schumer's thoughts on her final draft.

The monologue opens with Kardashian mentioning her "movie premiere," which is a reference to the infamous sex tape that she filmed in 2002 with then-boyfriend Ray J. In 2007, at the very beginning of Kardashian's rise to fame, the tape was released to the public against Kardashian's wishes.

At the time "The Kardashians" episode was filmed in 2021, Kardashian was dealing with rumors that unseen footage from the sex tape was soon to be released.

Schumer stopped the reality star while she was reading to ask her, "Wait, what was the movie?" and jokingly asked if there's a part of her that wants the footage to be released because "it probably is pretty hot."

The comedian then told Kardashian, "I think I just wouldn't do any sex tape stuff," suggesting she delete the joke completely.

"Because this moment in time... this piece of like, art or whatever, will live on," Schumer continued, suggesting that people might eventually forget the sex tape.

Kardashian ended up deleting other jokes Schumer didn't like, such as one about Kris Jenner needing reminders that she's Kardashian's mother and not her sister. But she kept the sex tape joke in and explained in an interview later in the episode why she stuck with her own intuition.

"I think I've been in this game long enough to know that you just have to be yourself," Kardashian explained. "So, I want to say things that feel good coming out of my mouth, and that are things I would actually say. And so I'm gonna just go with my gut and stick with it and do exactly what I had planned on doing."
