Kim Kardashian continues story arc as publicist Siobhan Corbyn on American Horror Story: Delicate
Kim Kardashian appeared in the second episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Delicate Tuesday, playing the role of publicist Siobhan Corbyn.
The 42-year-old reality star previously appeared in last week’s episode, where she introduced her character as a publicity representative for actress Anna Victoria Alcott, played by Emma Roberts.
The episode opened with Alcott and her husband Dex (Matt Czuchry) speaking to investigators, who told her that she was mistaken in her belief that an intruder had broken into their apartment. Detectives told her it was likely a reaction to her medication.
Corbyn led the way when she welcomed Alcott to a packed office.
She told her that she had received a Gotham Award nomination and that she was a shoo-in to win an Oscar.

Later, during a one-on-one meeting in Corbyn’s office, Corbyn blasted Alcott for her behavior during the grind of awards season.
“Okay, what happened to you last night was damnable, but I want you to get it right,” Corbyn told Alcott. “Do you know how hard my staff worked for you? How many hours have we spent campaigning for this nomination?
‘How many b***jobs have been given collectively to even qualify? I mean, Derek’s jaw may never recover.”
Corbyn continued to chastise Alcott over her lack of animation in the public eye.
“So if you’re not enjoying this job, let me know and I can help you fill out an application to work at Costco,” she told her.
She credited Jamie Lee Curtis’ recent Oscar push as an inspiration for Alcott to push hard for an Oscar.
Corbyn then gave Alcott vials of a substance she called B-12.
Dex asked Anna to take a pregnancy test, and turns out to be pregnant, as does her doctor to avoid stress.
Corbyn bought Alcott a dress, which she wore to the Gotham Awards. In an allusion to the fact that Kim wore Marilyn Monroe’s dress to the Met Gala last year, she advised Alcott not to tear it.
They were seen dancing in front of a mirror that shattered into pieces.
Corbyn took center stage during a dinner table scene at the Gotham Awards, as she reprimanded a director who praised Alcott’s appearance.
“The real question is, how can you continue to trivialize the work she does by focusing only on her appearance?” She literally saved your film,” Corbyn told the director, who replied: “And that’s why all of Hollywood is terrified of this woman.”
Alcott’s character was seen punching a nosy fan into the toilet, causing the fan to hit her head on a sink and fall unconscious.
When she came out to accept an award, she began seeing the fan at a table and other demonic presences in the crowd, causing her to guzzle a black liquid.
Alcott was then seen being given a sedative through a needle, cutting to a scene of her sleeping in a bed with Corbyn, who sang Rock-a-bye Baby to her.
Corbyn reassured Alcott: “You are safe, darling; You’ll be fine… you were dehydrated and exhausted.”
She continued, “The paramedics have done tests and everything looks great. You just really need to rest and drink water.’
Asked what happened in the bathroom, Corbyn told Alcott: “The paramedics said you were probably hallucinating. It can happen, with all the stress you experience.’
While Alcott talked about the public meltdown ruining her Oscar chances, Corbyn demonstrated her PR skills by advising Alcott on how to navigate the situation.
‘The news cycle has a memory of seven seconds. There’s no such thing as bad press… we’re going to pull a ‘Wilde’ card – as in Olivia Wilde,” Corbyn said.
She continued, “Don’t tell them what happened – and wait for everyone to forget, cut off the people who do ask and make them think they’re the problem, you know, sexism. Look, I give you permission to chill, take it. ‘
Alcott was seen staying at a secure residence in the Hamptons amid the hard times with the help of Talia (Juliana Canfield) and bodyguards.
Alcott later went for an ultrasound, administered by nurse Ivy, played by Cara Delevingne.
She was later told she had suffered a miscarriage; and that there was no one in the facility named Nurse Ivy.
Ryan Murphy’s final season is based on Danielle Valentine’s novel Delicate Condition, focusing on an actress who may be expecting the arrival of Satan.
