Reality star personality, actress and now expectant mom Kim Kardashian spent a fair amount of time in Atlanta in the past couple of years.
Will she and Kanye West, who announced the baby bulletin at a Sunday concert, return while they await the arrival of their child? Could they be planning to move here at least part time? Remember the item from June about West supposedly scouting for an Atlanta pad for the two (soon to be three) of them?
We’ll see. For now here’s a look at Kardashian’s Atlanta connections so far.
In late 2011, Kardashian headed to Atlanta soon after announcing divorce plans following her ephemeral marriage to Kris Humphries. She was in town that time, serendipitously enough, to film a role in Tyler Perry’s movie “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.” Kardashian’s role in the movie, coming out March 29, is pretty minor but Perry took a fair amount of static from his fans for casting her at all.
“I could not have imagined I’d be getting all these emails about Kim Kardashian,” he said in a letter to fans posted on his web site in response. “Now, may I say something? Can a brother get a word in?….LOL. Y’all gave me a new movie title: Tyler Perry’s ‘Diary of a Mad Black Woman Cause You Hired Kim Kardashian, Don’t Make Me Take Off My Earrings and Boycott Yo A**.’ ”
In February and March of this year, Kardashian was back in Atlanta to film a guest-star role for “Drop Dead Diva,” the Lifetime series that shoots in Peachtree City.
During those visits Kardashian linked up with another reality show personality turned actress, Nene Leakes. The two were seen at STK (left) and Twist (right).
Later reports indicated the two were collaborating on a shoe line together and we were told at the time that the ladies arrived without entourages and had pretty low-key evenings.
