Kim Kardashian To Star In ‘American Horror Story’
American reality television star Kim Kardashian is swapping her domestic drama for something scripted with an appearance on cult show American Horror Story (2011 to present).
The socialite and billionaire businesswoman posted an eerie video on Monday (April 10) to her 352 million Instagram followers, confirming that she will be joining the series alongside regular Emma Roberts.
The brief video includes an off-key rendition of nursery rhyme Rock-A-Bye Baby and the whispered line: “Emma and Kim are delicate.”
Kardashian, 42, will co-star with Roberts, 32, in the show’s upcoming 12th season, which is partially based on an upcoming book, Delicate Condition by horror novelist Danielle Valentine.
The novel, due for release in August, has been described in online advertisements as a “thriller that follows a woman convinced a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens”.
A cover blurb from American author Andrea Bartz calls it a “feminist update to Rosemary’s Baby”.
American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy said in a statement that the show’s writer Halley Feiffer had crafted “a fun, stylish and ultimately terrifying role especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done”.
