Essence Atkins Denies Talking About Tyler Perry And Kim Kardashian

We recently reported Atkins aired out her thoughts on Perry’s decision to cast Kim Kardashian to Sister 2 Sister magazine, the star even commented on the fact that Tyler only cast the reality star because of her popularity and overlooked the fact that she wasn’t really an actress.

“I found it interesting that Tyler did that with Temptation, hiring Kim Kardashian because she has 16 million Twitter followers, which would seem like a brilliant marketing plan,” Essence told Sister 2 Sister.

“It’s not a failure, but it did worse than his movies usually do just based on him,” clarified Essence. “I thought that was an interesting finding. Your experiment didn’t work.”

In her own words she thought Tyler only cast Kimmy based on her attention sloring fame. No? Well, looks like Essence is backtracking from her previous comments…
