I am a Tyler Perry apologist around these parts, an admirer of his work ethic and devout fanbase. However, I have a hard time defending his latest casting choice. Perry has cast Kim Kardashian in The Marriage Counselor, an adaptation of Perry’s tenth play, which began touring in 2008. The story centers on an Ivy League-educated marriage counselor whose marriage starts to fall apart when her husband’s parents move in: “The marriage counselor, Judith, stops practicing what she preaches when she rekindles a relationship with an old college flame.” According to THR, Kardashian will play Judith’s co-worker. I don’t see any other casting for The Marriage Counselor, but production is scheduled for late October on Perry’s lucky 13th collaboration with Lionsgate.
