Evidence Of A Kardashian Cameo On 'New Girl' Was Burned In Order To Keep Prince Happy
The musical icon was not a fan of The Kardashians...at all.
In 2014, Beyonce gave us one Super Bowl performance to remember and Prince randomly starred in a hilarious episode of New Girl. The sitcom's star Zooey Deschanel spilled a few more details about that eventful year, including a Kardashian cameo that was cut to please the late singer.
During a recent interview on Conan, Deschanel shared her joy and amusement of the infamous "Prince" episode and how it came to be. The actress says she was contacted by a member of the singer's camp who shared he was a big fan of the show. As producers and writers put together a story line which included a party at Prince's house, Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner were invited to the set as cameos at the party. What the staff didn't know was Prince's lack of interest in the reality stars.
"Someone was friends with some of the Kardashians and had made a phone call and they had kindly come on to shoot a kind of cameo part,” she said. “It turns out that someone from Prince’s camp said, ‘Who are the celebrities? I hope it’s not a Kardashian…' Which is sad because Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner had very kindly come in and shot the scene…I felt so bad cause obviously everyone had gone out of their way to be there on that day, but Prince was running the show.”
While preparing for her scene, Deschanel says a production assistant swiped her script and any evidence of the Kardashians to torch on fire.
