Kim Kardashian adds acting to her impressive CV as she joins American Horror Story cast


In quite the departure from her day job, Kim Kardashian is set to join the star-studded cast of American Horror Story.

Kim, who was recently slammed for over-editing her social media photos, usually makes her money through many of her business ventures which includes SKIMS and KKW Beauty.

She also brings in the big bucks on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the newer addition, The Kardashians, alongside her sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall Jenner, Kylie and mum/manager Kris Jenner.

On top of all that, Kim has been training to be a lawyer in recent years and has been using her new legal credentials to campaign for prison reform and advocate for prisoners on death row.

Now, it appears as if the 42 year old is set to make her acting debut as part of the upcoming twelfth season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story.

The show first sprang onto screens back in 2011 with notable cast members like Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange, and Denis O'Hare, but the cast tends to change with each new season.

Each instalment of the franchise is based on a singular theme, with the show previously covering Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel, Roanoke, Cult, Apocalypse, 1984, Double Feature and New York City.

On Monday, Kim took to Instagram with a short clip that revealed that Emma Roberts would be rejoining the cast for the upcoming twelfth season after leaving the franchise in 2018.

After Emma’s name was announced, the clip turned to reveal that Kim would also be joining the cast before the word “delicate” was added at the end.

It’s believed that the show will be based on the upcoming novel Delicate Condition by Danielle Valentine, though fans are already pumped to find out after this small titbit of information.

Reacting to the news, one person wrote: “THIS IS A TWIST I DIDNT SEE COMING.”

“Omg WHAAAT AHS?! Whatever it is I NEEEED,” another said, while a third added, “A PIVOT!!!”

Emma also posted the same video with the caption: “This summer…Kim and I are DELICATE.”

Ryan Murphy Productions wrote: “Emma and Kim are Delicate. This summer. FX and Stream on @hulu.”

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, show boss Ryan Murphy explained: “Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family.

“Emma and I are excited about collaborating with this true force in the culture. Halley Feiffer has written a fun, stylish and ultimately terrifying role especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done.”

Though the extent of Kim’s role is yet to be revealed, this could be the first major acting role the mum of four has secured after previously working in minor roles on projects like Disaster Movie, PAW Patrol: The Movie, 2 Broke Girls, American Dad, How I Met Your Mother, and CSI: NY.

The show is set to start filming in May, and as per other instalments, season 12 is expected to air sometime around September.

“It’s one of the biggest shows,” Ryan previously said. “Sometimes we have big writers' rooms. This year, one person is pretty much writing all of them.”
