Late pop star Prince once shut down the cameos of the Kardashians in an episode of the TV show New Girl as he didn’t like them, actress Zooey Deschanel has revealed. Prince appeared in an episode of New Girl season 3 aptly titled Prince.
Speaking on the TV show Conan, Deschanel, who stars as Jessica “Jess” Christopher Day in New Girl, said that a production assistant had to burn the scripts and everything that might mention the Kardashians, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“I’m not sure exactly how the celebrities were chosen, but someone was friends with some of the Kardashians and had made a phone call, and they had kindly come on to shoot a little cameo part where they were at Prince’s party, which I didn’t really know about because it kept changing,” Deschanel revealed.
“Someone from Prince’s camp said like, ‘Who are the celebrities? I hope it’s not a Kardashian’,” she added.
The 36-year-old recalled that the assistant took her and everyone else’s scripts. “I get there the day Prince is supposed to arrive, and I’m studying my lines, and one of the PAs comes in, and she says, ‘I need all of the (scripts)’. She takes mine from me and takes everybody else’s ... I’m like, ‘What is going on?’ I walk outside, and she has, like, a bonfire. She’s burning all the scripts and the call sheets,” Deschanel added.
In a video that surfaced following his death, the Purple rain singer was also seen kicking Kim Kardashian off of his concert stage.
