While The Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian, is always busy, she has added a new area of focus to her full plate. Although she was struggling to keep up with the hectic schedule in Season 4, that hasn’t stopped her from diving deeper into the field of acting. However, some people believe her reason for digging her heels in is because she has an ulterior motive behind it.

Kim Kardashian Is Getting Backlash

After appearing in Variety‘s Actors on Actors interview, Kim Kardashian is getting slammed for her overreach in the entertainment industry. Many people say Kim doesn’t deserve to “be in the same room” with other actors with more experience. Kim Kardashian and Chloe Sevigny made the cover story on June 5. Trying to be relatable in the interview, Kim mentioned discovering her mom, Kris Jenner, had never seen Troop Beverly Hills.

Kim Kardashian Attempts To Be Relatable

Kim Kardashian says, “Yesterday I was absolutely blown away, stopped in my tracks, couldn’t believe it, emergency family meeting at the movies – my mom had never seen Troop Beverly Hills.” Then, she reviews the exciting time she had watching it with her mom. Saying, “And we watched it, and she was crying over the fashion and all these stores that don’t exist anymore.” Likewise, they discuss the differences in perceived security risks now. “And we were like, ‘Oh, we can never drive down in a Rolls-Royce in Beverly Hills these days. All the shopping bags out? You’d get robbed.'” Further adding, “It was such a different time. So I love nostalgic movies.” Chloe awkwardly laughs at the interaction. But some people didn’t find it relatable.

  •  One viewer says, “Rich girl problems.”
  • “Vapid to the core,” said another commenter.
  • “Actors on Actors you say?”
  • “Yeah. This is the worst thing about Beverly Hills for sure.”

What Is Kim Kardashian’s Ulterior Motive Behind Her Acting?

However, some critics believe they know why Kim Kardashian is pursuing acting so diligently right now. Many viewers of The Kardashians believe Kim has an ulterior motive to juggle acting along with her multitude of other projects. They think she has the Hollywood Walk of Fame locked in her crosshairs. Reportedly, Kim was denied a star because her fame is primarily in reality TV. Additionally, she received a notice from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce with information about the denial. Within the statement, it says, “We’re happy to consider reality stars once they get nominated for, or win, an Emmy, Grammy, or Oscar. We’ll consider them when they are legitimate actors or singers.”

Beefing Up Her Résumé

While Kim Kardashian has built a life on camera, the majority of filming has been for KUWTK and The Kardashians reality series. However, Kim is steadily building her acting résumé. She has been in several features: Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor (2013), Paw Patrol: The Movie (2021), Deep in the Valley (2009), and American Horror Story: Delicate (2023 to 2024). But none of these portrayals have gleaned a prestigious award. Furthermore, she has plans for starring in several new roles. She plans to act in The 5th Wheel and a yet-to-be-named legal drama series by Ryan Murphy.

  • One fan is sure they know her motives: “Kim is definitely plotting to get a star by acting in more things.”

Striving To Meet The Qualifications

A nomination for a Walk of Fame star is helpful for a celebrity to receive one since the selection is by committee review. Kim Kardashian always expects to get what she wants so she is doubling down to meet the qualifications.

The criteria for receiving a star consists of the following: professional achievement, longevity in the category of five years or more, contributions to the community and the guarantee that the celebrity will attend the dedication ceremony if selected. Posthumous awards require a two-year waiting period after death.

After the Walk of Fame Selection Committee has made its selections, the Hollywood Chamber’s Board of Directors also votes to approve the star, and then for a final approval, the names are submitted to the City of Los Angeles’ Board of Public Works Department.
