Not much of a departure for Tyler Perry, The Marriage Counselor revolves around Judith, a slick Ivy-league educated advice expert played by Jurnee Smollett. Unhappy, and bored with her own marriage, Judith goes against her own code of conduct and cheats on her husband with a smooth talking player that comes to her seeking relationship guidance. Realizing she has made a huge mistake, she enlists the help of her friend Ava to give her a makeover and new confidence as her life unravels.
Kim Kardashian will play Ava, her most substantial role in film thus far. The non-actress was previously seen in the spoof Disaster Movie and in the Chris Pratt cult comedy Deep in the Valley.
