Kim Kardashian will join the cast of Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story for the upcoming twelfth season, the billionaire reality star announced on her Instagram on Monday, surprising fans with her biggest acting role yet.
Kardashian and American Horror Story regular Emma Roberts posted a preview of the FX show's upcoming season on their respective Instagram pages, revealing that the upcoming season of Murphy's anthology will be titled "Delicate" and will air this summer.
Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter that Kardashian is "one of the biggest and brightest TV stars in the world" and that her role in the upcoming season will be "fun, stylish, and ultimately terrifying."
The upcoming season is said to be based in part on the novel Delicate Condition by Danielle Valentine, which tells the story of a woman who "is convinced that a sinister character will do whatever it takes to ensure that her pregnancy never happens. ", according to the description of the book. .
Airing on FX and streaming on Hulu, American Horror Story has brought together many Hollywood big names since its inception in 2011, including Lady Gaga, Angela Bassett and Sarah Paulson.
We estimate that Kardashian is worth $1.2 billion, largely thanks to her shapewear brand, Skims, and KKW Beauty, her cosmetics and fragrance company. Kardashian made the Forbes billionaire list for the first time in 2021 and was ranked 16th on Forbes' list of America's richest self-made women last year.
In recent years, Kardashian has found her footing on the acting scene after years as a reality TV titan.
