Ah, 2023, the year when the reality TV queen, Kim Kardashian, decided to venture into the haunting corridors of "American Horror Story: Delicate." Just when we thought we had seen it all, the FX anthology series threw us a curveball with its 12th season, casting none other than the "PAW: Patrol" actress herself.
Kim K's surprising twist in the tale
For almost a decade, "American Horror Story" seemed to have lost its touch, becoming almost unwatchable. Yet, the inclusion of Kim Kardashian in "Delicate" was a masterstroke, even if the season itself felt like a tired rehash of "Rosemary's Baby." Centered around a young woman, Anna Victoria Alcott (played by Emma Roberts), who might be carrying Satan's offspring, the season had its moments. "Nothing worth waiting for is ever easy," an indifferent nurse tells Anna, setting the tone for the eerie events to follow.
Despite the familiar horror tropes – a creepy doctor, mysterious prescriptions, and a potentially sinister stalker – the season's saving grace was Kardashian's portrayal of Anna's publicist, Siobhan. Embracing and playing up her often-criticized Valley girl persona, Kardashian delivered lines that were pure gold. "You have a peculiar penchant for turning dreams into nightmares," Siobhan quips, showcasing her dual role as Anna's confidante and the season's comic relief.
The Kardashian effect: A touch of campy brilliance
While the chemistry between Roberts and her on-screen husband, Matt Czuchry, felt as electrifying as a wet blanket, Kardashian's moments on screen were undeniably the highlights. Whether she was throwing shade at Hollywood's elite or comforting a distressed Anna with lines like, "Oh honey, don't cry. Your face cannot get puffy for Andy," Kardashian's performance was reminiscent of the high-camp brilliance brought to the series by legends like Jessica Lange and Lady Gaga.
In conclusion, while "American Horror Story: Delicate" might not have been the series' best offering, Kardashian's unexpected foray into the world of horror TV was a delightful surprise. And to that, we echo the sentiments of many: You're doing amazing, sweetie.
