Watch the trailer for Kim’s Fairytale Divorce, the latest Kardashian event (and SNL parody)

You might think that both Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kim Kardashian’s rapid marriage is beyond parody, especially by the rarely-hilarious Saturday Night Live, but this trailer for “Kim’s Fairytale Divorce” that aired on on this weekend’s episode is great parody–especially Kristen Wiig’s perfect impression of Kris Jenner’s attention-grabbing.

The worst part comes at the very end, when the parody teases other fake reality shows and specials, such as “Brody Jenner, Khloe & Kris Take Vitamins” and “Lamar’s Penis Revealed.” Those are funny but ultimately awful because we really don’t need to give Ryan Seacrest or E! any ideas.

The Sing-Off loses its star
