American Horror Story: Delicate Makes Kim Kardashian Parody One of Her Sisters
She chopped that episode up.
In the ever-evolving landscape of American Horror Story, the show has managed to surprise and captivate fans time and time again with its inventive storytelling and iconic characters.
The latest season, titled American Horror Story: Delicate, continues that tradition, introducing Kim Kardashian to the AHS universe and cleverly referencing her reality TV roots.
In the third episode of Delicate, titled When the Bough Breaks, Kim Kardashian's character, Siobhan Corbyn, shares a scene that humorously references one of her half-sisters, Kendall Jenner, in a subtle yet memorable moment that highlights the show's knack for blending horror and humor.
In the scene, Siobhan is preparing a salad with viral green goddess dressing for her friend Anna Victoria Alcott, played by Emma Roberts. While the salad preparation may seem banal, fans of the reality show The Kardashians will immediately recognize the homage to a peculiar cucumber-cutting incident involving Kendall Jenner.
In the original episode, Kendall's unconventional cucumber-slicing technique became a viral sensation, turning an everyday kitchen moment into a comedic show and solidifying the power of social media and the immense influence of the Kardashian family.
Sensing an opportunity, and using Kim Kardashian's character as a vessel, Delicate seized the chance to playfully parody the incident. The deliberate camera focus on Siobhan's cucumber slicing, while seemingly insignificant, is a clever wink at the Kardashian family's pop culture legacy.
While Kim Kardashian's inclusion in the AHS franchise initially raised a few eyebrows, with some questioning her acting abilities, her portrayal of Siobhan Corbyn has defied the expectations of viewers.
As Anna's loyal friend and publicist, Siobhan is a multi-dimensional character who plays a pivotal role in Anna's journey to overcome a traumatic miscarriage.
Kim Kardashian's portrayal of Siobhan solidifies her place in the AHS universe, with her performance in Delicate garnering positive reviews and her character standing out as a scene-stealer.
