The jokes were inevitable: A week after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took their romance public, the comics at Saturday Night Live questioned its validity in one of their sketches.
The April 14 episode, hosted by Josh Brolin, featured Nasim Pedrad (as Kardashian) and Jay Pharaoh (as West) weighing in on the Trayvon Martin case during an appearance on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight.
Pedrad's Kardashian was shocked that it took Florida officials so long to arrest George Zimmerman and charge him with second degree murder. "Forty-six days!" she whined. "That's like half a marriage!"
"I love this woman," Pharoah's West said. "As I said earlier this week, she's my Beyonce."
Pedrad's Kardashian added: "Only without the singing, or the dancing or the acting. I'm a zero-threat!"
Jokes aside, multiple insiders tell the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now) that Kardashian's relationship with the hip-hop megastar is the real deal. "It's not a PR stunt," a source insists of the rapper, 34, and reality star, 31. "They're perfect for each other."
