Though she and new husband Kris Humphries may not need one until the near future, Kim Kardashian has signed on for Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor.
Based on the 2008 play, Jurnee Smollett of Friday Nights Lights and CBS’ short-lived The Defenders is the titular role of Judith, a young newlywed great of providing relationship advice to others, but has difficulty taking her own medicine, leading her to make the proverbial mistake of having an affair. Kim will play Ava, her co-worker that gives Judith a makeover and a better sense of herself while the latter deals with her troubled marriage.
The 31-year-old reality star appeared on the big screen in the spoof Disaster Movie and Deep in the Valley, and made guest appearances on CSI: NY, 90210, and How I Met Your Mother. Kim was also one of the season seven contestants on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars; she was eliminated in the third week.
Kim is currently shooting Kourtney and Kim Take New York, the second spin-off of the popular Keeping up with the Kardashians; season two will premiere November 13.
The Marriage Counselor is set to come out sometime next year.
And E! Entertainment Television has officially confirmed on Thursday that that there will be a fourth spin-off called Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Take New Jersey; production is set to start next summer and will premiere next September.
