Kim Kardashian got a supporting part in a legit Tyler Perry movie


Kim Kardashian: Actress. How does that sound? How does that feel coming out of your mouth? It feels like vom, right? Well, Kim Kardashian is not content to simply have acting credits that include “Ray J’s on-screen sex partner” and “Dancing With the Stars failure”. Kim Kardashian is now accepted as an ACTRESS. Tyler Perry just hired her for a supporting role in his new movie! Oh, Tyler. Girl, we need to talk.

In what amounts to her most substantial acting role so far, Kim Kardashian has signed on to costar in The Marriage Counselor, the Lionsgate film Tyler Perry will next direct, based on his stage play. Shooting begins October 26 in Atlanta. The film tells the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated relationship expert who makes her living dispensing marital advice, but is so bored with her own marriage that she breaks her professional code and cheats with a smooth talking client only to realize she has made a huge mistake. Jurnee Smollett plays the marriage counselor and Kardashian will play Ava, a co-worker who gives Judith a big city makeover and new confidence as she struggles with her personal issues. Kardashian previously played roles in the films Deep in the Valley and Disaster Movie.

Now, I’ve long defended Tyler Perry. One of the best things about Perry is that he consistently writes challenging characters for women of color, and he’s committed to hiring actresses that Hollywood has often ignored. But seriously – Kim Kardashian? WTF? Was he just *that* blown away by her greasy performance in “Jam (Turn It Up)”?

By the way, Kim was still in NYC, as was Kris Humphries, even after he was seen “moving out” on Thursday. They celebrated her 31st birthday at The Darby on Friday in NYC, and then last night they were in Las Vegas together. You can read more about that BS here.

    The world has come to an end. How long before she is going to declare her aim is to win an Oscar? Or that she wants be taken seriously as an actress. Shoot me now…

  2. Whatamess! says:

    I’ve never gotten any of his very stupid movies that reinenforce racial stereotypes.
    As for Kim getting a part in the movie,I’ll believe it when I see it

  3. Victoria says:

    It’s a Tyler Perry movie. How he gets great actors to join in his bacoonfest productions, I have no idea. Although, I did kind of like the Family The Preys and that one with Taraji P. Henson more than I probably should have.

  4. Rita says:

    It never fails to amaze me, the number of vapid chicks that keep this “Queen Vapid”, or Quapid if you prefer, in the news.

  5. retyah says:

    I think Tyler Perry is def an innovator… but all of his recent movies get terrible reviews! Her first ‘acting’ debut will be a huge bust.

  6. pwal says:

    Challenging roles for Black women? Please!! It’s more like consistently hiring Black women to curry favor.

    And hiring this thing… sorry… won’t work. And for the life of me, this trick is always where promising Black men are. First, it was the Jacksons; then freaking Ray-J (who has seriously squandered any legitimate opportunity in the wake of this trick); then Reggie Bush; then, the Wayans and their stupid parody movies; then Kanye and Cee-Lo and now Tyler Perry. My hope is that, like Oprah, this idiot (Tyler Perry) will fall off and take these pedestrian @$$-kissing hanger ons with them.

    How much of an actress can she be, she can’t even move her face now

  8. Jamie says:

    It’s really sad that any of Tyler Perry’s movies are considered legit or that good Black actresses find themselves in his movies because it’s so hard for them to get work. Kim K is just the type of so called actress that should be cast in his crap, so this is fine by me. I’m more shocked when I see a notable actress attached to his hot mess movies.

  9. Jules says:

    She looks like a blow up doll. Yuk.

  10. Green_Eyes says:

    When I read the title..just as I was clicking on it the very thought I had was…

    Oh Tyler must have cast her as a Ho in jail getting advice from Madea. I’m disappointed in Perry. But lately his films haven’t been all he couldn’t get someone more relevant.

  12. Miss A. says:

    Dear America you deserve on her and her crap. You made her who she is. Thank God she is not popular out of US like Paris used to be. Good for me.

  13. Faye says:

    Hmm, that white-dress outfit seems lacking. Maybe she should have worn more jewelery.

  14. pitd says:

    They all look super annoyed in those pictures. They don’t look happy at all.

  15. EnoughoftheKardashians says:

    I’ve reached my breaking point. This is the last item I will pay attention to about this girl and her family. Whenever she’s anywhere, I will not listen or look. I won’t buy magazines with her on them, and I will turn the channel when she’s on. Not clicking on other stories about her on gossip blogs. I suggest everyone else do the same. When you drain the well, it goes dry. ENOUGH OF THIS GIRL.

  16. Bitchbelying says:

    I can’t….I just can’t. smh.

  17. Amanda says:

    I don’t see tyler perry movies because they suck. So this wont effect me lol

  18. leetruth says:

    Perry’s films are usually rubbish anyway apart from a few gems. Any pretence to the arts by Perry is now invalidated by hiring Kim.

  19. laylajane says:

    I’m never going to see another Tyler Perry film again. But I’m guessing since Kim K made $60 million, that I will be the only one not going to see that movie.

    Apparently, a whole lot of people like her on the downlow….Lord help us all, when will it stop?Tyler Perry you official just SOLD OUT!!!!!

  20. wenderwoman says:

    Khloe looks pretty and Mama Kris looks like sh*t.

  21. Mary jones says:

    I bet she has a bit part not a co starring role. Who would be dumb enough to put this whore in a movie where she actually has to learn a lot of lines. We all know she probably cant read.

  22. Quest says:

    If Kim is playing the part of a famewhoring hooker maybe, just maybe I would understand the choice. But, yuck

  23. MissVJJ says:

    How horrible does Khloe look.. lol

  24. Matt says:

    ‘A legit Tyler Perry movie’ = words that don’t belong in the same sentence

  25. Kiki says:

    Enough with these people already.

  26. whome says:

    @jamie …. I couldnt have said it better my self.

  27. Kim says:

    Im sure the part will focus on her behind more than any actual “acting” on her part.

  28. smh says:

    i honestly thought she was nicole scherzinger here

  29. angie says:

    Am I disappointed? Tremendously. But Kim Kardashian is a Tour de Marketing Force the likes of which we’ve never seen from someone with no discernible talent. I don’t get it, and many people claim not to get it. But clearly we’re in the minority because the Kardashian train has not slowed down even a little bit. People love these chicks and everything they touch turns to platinum.

  30. Trashaddict says:

    Dayum wouldja all please stop encouraging her!

  31. autummleaves says:

    I can’t with this non-acting, overhyped, and over-saturated trick. I just can’t. Will pass on the movie, and I happen to love Jurnee Smolett.

    I’ll catch the movie on bootleg.

  32. suzoo says:

    I’ll watch the flick if Kim gets peed on in it.

  33. Sony says:

    It was only a matter of time before people stopped being hoodwinked by this dude. It is all about money and he is after all a businessperson. He is giving the people what they want. You want to laugh ok; I will dress up in drag and talk about smoking weed and being arrested. I will talk about not knowing who my baby daddy is. I will talk about all the crack heads in my families and all the mothers who pimp their daughters for money and drugs. Is this setting a good example in our community? One main character was an alcoholic. It is okay because he will throw in a couple of gospel songs and the characters may find redemption in the end. Please make him go away.
    People have exalted this man. He has pimped entertainers for years. He will throw a little money around and throw a job or two here and there. Then he will go on the Tom Joyner’s show and talk about his family when it is time for a new movie or play to be released.
    I am not surprised about the Kim K fiasco. He is trying to seduce a new demographic. It is a win win situation; she needs blacks to buy her perfume, clothes, and shoes. He needs young white females, so they are helping each other. However, here is the trick. We will never make her richer, and he will NEVER get another one of my hard-earned dimes!
    Spike was right!
