THE irony wasn’t lost on fans when Kim Kardashian last year signed on to appear in Tyler Perry’s new film Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

Hot on the heels of ending one of Hollywood’s shortest marriages, the reality TV queen plays social-climber Ava, a preened business woman who loves dresses and lambastes her co-workers for not meeting her standards of style and beauty. A newly-released trailer for the comedy proves the role isn’t much of a stretch for the star. Her voice narrates the top of the two-and-a-half minute clip. ‘We have a billion dollars walking in and out of these offices looking for love.’

The scene opens from a sweeping cityscape to the sprawling offices where Kim’s character rips into marriage counsellor Judith, played by Jurnee Smollett. ‘You have a standard to uphold. That blouse,’ she miffs. ‘It’s telling it all.’ –DM
