"which b*tch you know made a million off a sex tape?"
Upon hearing the news that reality star Kim Kardashian has landed a role in Tyler Perry's latest movie, entitled "The Marriage Counselor", I already knew that this announcement would be met with cheers but mainly jeers!
Let's face it. Although Kim has acquired an enormous amount of success in the television, perfume, modeling - all around branding - world, there are quite a few people that can't stand her guts due to her "famous for being famous" platform. The question that I ask is.....WHY? She and her family have done a GREAT job of turning a horrible event (a sex tape that she made with her then BOYFRIEND "leaked" onto the internet - "leaked"? I even had to laugh) into something positive. She has acquired a huge fan base that allows her to be a "role model" to a lot of young girls. Listen. None of us are above public humiliation. It can happen to the best of us. She is only doing what LOTS of women would do (including myself! YEP....myself!) = turning a negative into a positive.
If she wants to star in a crappy Tyler Perry movie, by all means....MAKE THAT $$$$ Kim!
In what amounts to her most substantial acting role so far, Kim Kardashian has signed on to costar in The Marriage Counselor, the Lionsgate film Tyler Perry will next direct, based on his stage play. Shooting begins October 26 in Atlanta. The film tells the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated relationship expert who makes her living dispensing marital advice, but is so bored with her own marriage that she breaks her professional code and cheats with a smooth talking client only to realize she has made a huge mistake. Jurnee Smollett plays the marriage counselor and Kardashian will play Ava, a co-worker who gives Judith a big city makeover and new confidence as she struggles with her personal issues. Kardashian previously played roles in the films Deep in the Valley and Disaster Movie.PS - Oh, and don't think for a SECOND that Tyler Perry didn't know what he was doing in casting Kim! He knows that her in his movie brings along a whole new demographic (aka $$$$$$$$$$$$)! Smart move IMO.
