Now that she dominates reality television, fashion and nightlife coast to coast, Kim Kardashian has set her sights on the biggest spotlight of them all: the big screen.
The reality star/designer/businesswoman/HuffPost Game Changer has joined the cast of Tyler Perry's next film, "The Marriage Counselor," she tweeted Friday night. Based on one of Perry's plays, the film tells the story of a marriage counselor whose own marriage begins to fall apart when her husband's parents move in. She begins to cheat on her husband, and Kardashian will play a co-worker who takes her to the big city for a makeover.
The role dovetails well with her recent, televised marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. The announcement was also a great birthday gift for Kardashian; she turned 31 on Friday.
Kardashian has featured in small parts in two films in the past, "Deep in the Valley" and the spoof, "Disaster Movie." She also featured on a number of episodes of the surf show, "Beyond The Break," as well as an episode of "CSI: NY" in 2009.
She, of course, is best known for her multitude of TV shows, including "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and "Kourtney and Kim Take New York."
The co-star of that latter series, her older sister Kourtney, guest starred on the soap opera "One Life To Live" in March, while another Kardashian sister, Khloe Kardashian Odom, guested on "Law and Order: LA." All three sisters have made a multitude of appearances as guests on TV talk shows.
