This SNL hosting report comes after Kim Kardashian appeared on the show last weekend and was met by mixed reviews. Many claimed it went too far when jokes about the OJ Simpson murder case was in her opening monologue. 

But Kardashian's episode captivated viewers so it makes sense that 

Dave Portnoy claimed Addison Rae had met with SNL executives.

During the BFFs podcast which features 'Barstool Sports' creator Dave Portnoy, and TikTok stars Josh Richards, and Brianna Chickenfry, Portnoy says Rae went to a meeting and says these are more than rumors. 

Portnoy had recently featured Addison in a different interview while she was in New York so it makes sense that he might know if she had been in talks with SNL. 

Addison Rae started following an SNL producer.

Rumors started after Addison started following SNL producer Lindsay Shookus on Instagram.

A fan submitted a tip to the instagram gossip account Deux Moi with the subject, SNL hosting thought. It says, “Saw Addison Rare recently followed producer at SNL Lindsay Shookus. Could she be hosting this season??"

Saturday Night Live producers have not publicly confirmed if Rae will appear in the season or not. 

Though, she is currently part of a multi-film Netflix deal so it's likely she'll have a lot of new stuff coming up that she may want to promote.
