Kim Kardashian Bags a Role in 'American Horror Story' And the Internet Is Already Roasting Her | "Doesn't Make Sense"
American Horror Story is about to get its 12th season but horror fans are in for a surprise. According to Variety, reality TV star Kim Kardashian is about to make her proper acting debut in the show, and it looks like netizens are not having any of it. Kardashian spoke with Marc Malkin while walking the Met Gala red carpet on May 1, 2023 and they discussed her upcoming appearance in American Horror Story: Delicate. “We start shooting my stuff at the end of this month. But production has already started and I’m so excited,” Kardashian told Malkin, confirming her role in the horror anthology series.

“It’s really fun to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new and grow. I’m so excited for the experience,” said Kim K. When asked if she was taking acting lessons to prepare for her role in AHS, she replied without diving into much detail, “I am, of course. It’s a challenge. I like to challenge myself.” Looks like Kardashian wants to hold as many titles as she can, from reality TV star to businesswoman to aspiring attorney. And now she is on her way to becoming a serious TV actress. AHS regular Emma Roberts, who last appeared in Ryan Murphy's long-running anthology series in 2019, will return to the show for its 12th season as it was officially announced on April 10, 2023. The Kardashians star made the announcement on social media by posting a teaser with a side-eye and a red teardrop emoji as the caption.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, AHS co-creator Murphy said, "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.”

kim kardashians either going to save or nail american horror story into the grave— jade (@thewonderrwhy) April 10, 2023
It's unclear if Kardashian will die in the first episode or play a lead role like Lady Gaga's Golden Globe-winning character in Season 5 of the show. However, this is surprisingly not Kardashian's first acting job. Along with numerous appearances as herself on shows like American Dad and Ocean's Eight, she also guest starred on CSI: NY in 2009 and had a recurring role as Nikki DuPree on Drop Dead Diva's fourth season. She made her acting debut as Ava in Tyler Perry's 2013 drama Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor and in the 2021 Paw Patrol film, she provided the voice of Delores.

But netizens reacted in horror as they firmly believe that "Kardashian starring in AHS doesn't make sense" and "she has no acting talent at all." A few Twitter users even joked about how Robert's character just might end up slaughtering Kardashian's character in the first episode. Well, AHS has always been unpredictable with its twists and turns, and we can't wait to witness Kardashian trying her best to establish herself as an actor.
