Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – The late music legend Prince made a cameo in a 2014 episode of “New Girl” and the singer reportedly did not want to do a scene with any of the Kardashians .
Zooey Deschanel dropped by “Conan” and the actress talked about some of the secrets of that episode where Prince did a cameo. She shared that Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian got out of their way to shoot some scenes for the supposed episode of “New Girl” but they had to be scrapped out due to Prince.
Deschanel shared, “One September day, three years ago maybe, I got an email from his manager, saying that he liked watching the show and he would like to come on.” Deschanel revealed that she was floored by the request but she never thought that Prince was a sitcom kind of person let alone him watching her show.
She continued to share that a PA got everyone’s scripts and started burning them. She added, “Anyway, I get there the day that Prince is supposed to arrive and I’m studying my lines, and one of the PA’s comes in and she’s like, ‘I need all of the scripts. She takes mine from me, and takes everyone’s call sheets! I walk outside and she has like a bonfire. She’s burning all the scripts and the call sheets. It turns out that someone from Prince’s camp, said ‘Who are the celebrities? I hope it’s not a Kardashian.’”
Deschanel said that she felt bad for Kardashian and Jenner because they went in and already shot the scene.
It remains unclear what Kardashian and Jenner thought after not appearing on the show despite being filmed for the 2014 episode. They are yet to comment on the latest statements of Deschanel .
