However, since filing for divorce from husband Kris Humphries, Kardashian has been in hiding, missing the birthdays of both her mother Kris Jenner and her sister Khloe Kardashian's husband Lamar Odom.

She will play Ava, a friend of the protagonist Judith. Ava helps Judith get her confidence back after Judith is unfaithful to her husband.
Jenner recently said that Kim needs to take time off, insisting that her daughter simply needs to have a good cry to come to terms with the end of her relationship.
