Kim made headlines when she was cast as publicist Siobhan on the show's new season, primarily because she isn't an actress.
In Thursday's all-new The Kardashians, Kim revealed that she reached out to Salma Hayek -- who many thought should've been cast in the role -- after she started receiving backlash for participating in the franchise's latest saga.
"I just have to get it together. All these people are like speaking out like, 'You should give the role to Salma Hayek. Why don't you give a real actress a job?'" Kim recalls in a confessional.
It's then Kim was prompted to reach out to the Frida star herself, revealing, "I said to her like, 'What did I get myself into? I feel bad,' and she's like, 'Do not feel bad. Maybe this whole road has led you here because you are supposed to be an actress and this is your real career.'"
