When it was announced that Kim Kardashian had a small role in Tyler Perry’s new movie, “The Marriage Counselor,” controversy surrounding the announcement rose to high levels. Many people had something to say about Kim being in the film, especially after she filed for divorce after 72 days of marriage to Kris Humphries.
Tyler Perry went on “Chelsea Lately” to discuss his new movie and forthcoming project with the reality star where he complimented Kim’s acting job!
“So, again, I don’t watch television, I didn’t know very much about Kim. Somebody said, ‘What about Kim Kardashian?’ and I said ‘Okay, sounds great,’ and then I get — all hell broke loose, man. She’s in a movie called ‘The Marriage Counselor’ and I found out she’s going through a divorce after a few days. I mean, all hell broke loose. Every black woman in America was after me for that. So the two things I realized would get me in trouble, hiring Kim Kardashian for a movie and dating you, so now I know two things that I can’t do. But no, she was great in the movie and it was a lot of fun.”
They were tweeting, ‘Have you lost your mind? All of the black women that need work and you’re hiring Kim Kardashian?’ But when they see the movie they’ll see it’s a small role that I wrote for her and she did a great job in it. You’re gonna be surprised. You’ll call me up and say, ‘You know what? She did a really good job.’
