Netflix’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman has received mostly positive reviews since it debuted on the streaming service in 2018. However, as it enters its third season, the show seems to be getting a helpful boost from one of its high-profile guests. Kim Kardashian was one of the interviewees that Letterman spoke to this time around, and their wide-ranging conversation – which even touched on the reality star’s sex tape scandal – is trending high on Netflix.
As of right now, Kim Kardashian’s episode of My Next Guest currently sits at the #2 spot on Netflix’s Top 10 list. With this, the show joins the likes of Unsolved Mysteries, Over the Moon, and The Haunting of Bly Manor.
Anyone who’s seen it knows that Kardashian and Letterman’s chat gets pretty raw. During the discussion, the star discussed a number of different topics. As mentioned, she spoke on her 2007 sex tape scandal, which she says taught both her and her family about how to handle large and controversial situations that hit the media. Other points of the segment also caused Kardashian to break down.
On David Letterman’s part, the veteran host revealed that he once had some pre-conceived notions about what kind of person Kim Kardashian is. He recently recalled that when he first booked her for The Late Show, he wasn’t really sure how things were going to go down. But this time around, it was Kardashian’s relationship with husband Kanye West that really changed his perception of her.
This interview comes at a very interesting time in Kardashian’s life, one that’s been filled with change. Just recently, she and her famous family confirmed that they would be ending their long-running reality TV series with a 20th season that’s set to air next year. Her mother, Kris Jenner, previously explained that after mulling over future seasons, the family just suddenly decided it was time to bring the series to a close. The “momager” also cited the changes in social media culture as a contributing factor.
In addition to the end of her show, Kim Kardashian has also experienced some tough situations in her marriage. She and West are currently at the center of divorce rumors, which some assume are in part due to West’s recent actions and personal problems. Kardashian also experienced difficulties in caring for her husband while he was battling COVID-19. Needless to say, she’s currently experiencing a new normal.
If anything, it seems that her appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction served as a way for her to release her thoughts and clarify things for inquiring minds. It also seems David Letterman got quite a bit out of their conversation. Given how deep the conversation is, it’s no surprise the new episode is one of the most viewed pieces of content on Netflix right now.
