Zooey Deschanel Reveals That Prince Nixed a Kardashian Cameo on 'New Girl'

Clearly, the Kardashians are an acquired taste.

On Monday night, Zooey Deschanel dropped by Conan, and the adorkable actress dished on some hilarious behind-the-scenes drama. When Prince starred on a 2014 episode of New Girl, the music sensation had one very specific request in mind: No Kardashians. However, by the time the crew became aware of this, it was already too late.

Deschanel told late-night host Conan O'Brien all the crazy details about what really went down. “I get there the day Prince is supposed to arrive and I’m studying my lines and one of the PAs comes in and she’s like, ‘I need to take all of the sides, the scripts,’” Deschanel said. “I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ I walk outside, and she has, like, a bonfire. She’s burning all the scripts and the call sheets.”

Apparently, the cautious PA wanted to burn all written evidence of Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner's cameo (which had already been filmed at that point). “I felt so bad because obviously everyone had gone out of their way to be there on that day,” Deschanel added. “But Prince was running the show.”

Unfortunately, Deschanel didn't explain why Prince was so adamant about not having the Kardashians around. Perhaps the music legend hated reality shows? Let's not forget about the time Prince kicked Kim Kardashian off stage because she couldn't dance.

Watch the Conan clip below and tell us if you think Prince was right to boot the Kardashians.
