Kim Kardashian, who has been getting recognition for her acting skills following her appearance in “American Horror Story: Delicate,” has reportedly been handpicked by Jen Shah for a biopic role. It comes after actress Emma Stone name-dropped the “Real Housewives” cast member for a possible first-of-its-kind biopic in the Bravo franchise.
Jen Shah Is Documenting Her Prison Experience
Yorgos Lanthimos, acclaimed for his unconventional films like “The Lobster” and “Killing of a Sacred Deer,” has continued his unique storytelling with “Poor Things,” his latest Hollywood creation featuring Stone.
In the black-comedy fantasy, the screen queen portrays Bella Baxter, a woman revived through a Frankenstein-like brain transplant, leading to a fresh perspective on life.
Lanthimos’ penchant for the unexpected seemingly sets the stage for a “Real Housewives” biopic, which would be an audacious undertaking he appears fit to tackle, especially with the help of Stone, a superfan of the franchise.
This would explain why the “Crazy, Stupid, Love” star promptly exclaimed, “Jen Shah! Duh. Can you imagine?” when questioned about which “Housewife” the Greek filmmaker should focus on for a film during the premiere of “Poor Things.”
Now, days after that, Shah’s manager, Chris Giovanni, has claimed that his client was “freaking out over the phone” with joy when he called her in a federal prison camp for women with the information on Friday morning.
According to Giovanni, the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star, who entered prison in February following her guilty plea in a telemarketing scam, considered it an honor for Stone to endorse the project.
When it came to choosing someone to portray her, Shah had a preference for Kardashian. While the possibility of a biopic is not currently under consideration, Giovanni did reveal to TMZ that if cameras do start rolling, Shah is prepared to arm the actress who secures the role with the necessary information.
As it turned out, Shah has actively documented her prison experience, compiling 100-150 pages of notes for future reference.
As for Kardashian, there is no real surprise that she has supposedly gotten herself the role without auditioning for it, as it came after she teamed up with “AHS: Delicate” co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy.
The Blast previously highlighted that the mother of four is set to showcase her acting prowess once more in a “sexy adult” drama with her lawyer alter-ego taking center stage as the owner of an all-female law firm.
The series, scripted by Joe Baken of “Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans” and Jon Robin Baitz of “Brothers & Sisters” is currently in contract negotiations for Kardashian. Notably, the show has found a home on Hulu’s streaming platform, marking Murphy’s debut project under his new deal with Disney.
US media also alleged that Kardashian and her momager, Kris Jenner, immediately hopped on the train when Murphy, Baitz, and Baken pitched the idea to them.
Furthermore, in the previous month, Netflix successfully secured the streaming rights for her film “The Fifth Wheel,” triumphing over stiff competition from four other streaming services.
Shah’s Pal Planned A Sweet 50th Birthday Celebration For Her In Prison
Ahead of her 50th-year milestone, The Blast reported that Shah planned to mark the occasion with her fans serenading her with well wishes and love, all compiled into an email sent to her at midnight.
The plan to carry out this gesture was initially announced via the convicted reality star’s Instagram page by a “good friend,” who wrote:
“Hi Shah Squad, As many of you know, tomorrow is Jen’s Birthday! Many of you send send in messages checking in and wishing her well. Ally appreciates that.”
Continuing, the note read, “With that being said, I want to ask of those of you who would like to send her a birthday message to reply to this story with your message. I will be sending an email out to her around 12am (MTN) with everyone’s wishes!”
Even though Shah still has some years to go with her sentence, it is worth noting that just a month after reporting to prison, she had one year shaved off her initial six-and-a-half-year jail term.
Additionally, after serving her jail time, she will undergo five years of supervised release before being released from legal obligations. Shah is also required to meet certain conditions, including participation in “an outpatient mental health treatment program approved by the United States Probation Office.”
