Patti LuPone Slams Kim Kardashian’s ‘AHS’ Casting: ‘Don’t Get on the Stage’ [Video]

If Kim Kardashian were to never star in another movie, her filmography would be bookended by Kim Kardashian, Superstar, her sex tape with Ray J, and PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, where she voices a character named Delores. That’s quite the career arc. The television section of her IMDb is more active, including an upcoming role on American Horror Story. It’s no PAW Patrol, but it’s something — something not good, according to Patti LuPone, the Tony-winning legend who criticized Kardashian’s involvement with the FX series.

The legendary Broadway star, 74, let loose on “Watch What Happens Live” Sunday when host Andy Cohen asked her and fellow guest John Leguizamo whether they “give a damn” about the reality star, 42, being cast in the “American Horror Story” franchise.

“Yes, I do,” she seethed through gritted teeth.

“You don’t like it, do you?” Cohen, 54, clarified.

“No, I don’t,” LuPone replied in an unsurprisingly theatrical fashion.

“Why? She’s taking a role away …” the Bravo honcho questioned before the Tony winner interjected.

“… from actors,” she said.

“Excuse me, excuse me, Kim. You know, what are you doing with your life? Don’t get on the stage, Mrs. Worthington,” LuPone continued, referencing the English playwright and composer Noël Coward’s 1935 song “Mrs. Worthington” about overly zealous momagers.

Earlier this month, “AHS” co-creator Ryan Murphy announced that Kardashian will star in his show’s upcoming 12th season.

“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the ‘AHS’ family,” Murphy, 57, said in a statement.

The Skims founder reportedly will play a role specifically written with her in mind.

Kardashian is set to join Emma Roberts in the anthology’s new installment, titled “Delicate,” which is based on Danielle Valentine’s forthcoming novel, “Delicate Condition.”

She previously had small roles in “Disaster Movie,” “Beyond the Break” and “CSI: NY” and received a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Supporting Actress for her turn in “Temptations: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.”

LuPone, for her part, has appeared in three Murphy-created series: “AHS,” “Pose” and “Hollywood.”

Kardashian is not the only celeb that the “Company” star has criticized for their acting abilities.

LuPone, who originated the role of Eva Perón in “Evita” on Broadway in 1979, was less than complimentary about Madonna’s portrayal in the 1996 film adaptation.

During a 2017 “Watch What Happens Live” appearance, she branded the “Vogue” singer a “movie killer.”

And in 2018, LuPone criticized Uma Thurman’s Broadway performance.

“I don’t necessarily need to see film actors on stage because they can’t. Not in my country they can’t,” she said. “Can I just say, Uma Thurman in ‘The Parisian Woman,’ anybody see it? Holy s–t! I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”
