TV

Zooey Deschanel reveals the Purple One demanded that no Kardashians be featured in a 'New Girl' episode featuring him.

AceShowbiz - %cPrince% was not a fan of the Kardashians, according to this story shared by %cZooey Deschanel%. The actress said on "CONAN" Monday, May 9 that the music icon once shut down the Kardashian cameos in a "New Girl" episode that also featured the "Purple Rain" singer.

"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.

But then "someone from Prince's camp said like, 'Who are the celebrities? I hope it's not a Kardashian,' " the actress continued sharing. To avoid the nightmare, a production assistant had to burn the scripts and everything that might mention the Kardashian's name.

The 36-year-old recalled, "I get there the day Prince is supposed to arrive, and I'm studying my lines, and one of the P.A.s comes in, and she says, 'I need all of the [scripts].' She takes mine from me and takes everybody else's, and [she] takes everyone's call sheets ... 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."

"Which is sad, because I think %cKhloe Kardashian% and %cKris Jenner% had kindly come in and shot the scene," she added. "They didn't want anyone to get by each other. I felt so bad because everyone had gone out of their way to be there on that day, but Prince was running the show."

Prince appeared in an episode of "New Girl" season 3 aptly titled "Prince".

In a video that surfaced following his death, the singer was also seen kicking %cKim Kardashian% off of his concert stage.
