Bachelor in Paradise star Ashley Iaconetti’s dream is about to come true — she’s going to sit next to a Kardashian on After Paradise. Fans who follow Ashley on social media know that she is obsessed with the KUWTK family with a little extra obsession for Kim, so this is a big deal.
On Friday, ABC announced on Twitter that Kris Jenner will guest star on After Paradise on Monday night. Ashley revealed on Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram that she would be heading out to L.A. to appear alongside the mega-famous reality star. Can you tell she’s just a little excited to meet the Kardashian’s Momager?

Ashley made it clear that she was a huge Kardashian fans when she first appeared on Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor. Not only did she create a blog — Duchess Kimberly — that is inspired by the Kardashian sisters, many of her photos on Instagram reveal that she channels her inner-Kim frequently.
According to WetPaint, Ashley met Kim back in 2010 at the White House Correspondents Dinner and she has a photo to prove it. Although Kim is looking straight ahead like a figure in Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, Ashley’s face indicates that she may just be one of the biggest Kardashian fan girls in the world.
Chris Harrison and Jenny Mollen host After Paradise every Monday night, along with specials guests and cast members. Past guests who have dished about the Paradise drama include The View co-host Michelle Collins, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, comedian Paul Scheer, and Scandal‘s Katie Lowes and Josh Malina.
This week may turn out to be one of the most viewed live After Paradise shows since its premiere on August 3. Not only will Kris Jenner be sitting on the couch with Ashley I., the Bachelor in Paradise season finale is just a week away, so there will be a lot to talk about.
Perhaps Kris will give Ashley some advice on how to deal with her heartbreak over Jared Haibon. Better yet, maybe Kim will call in on the show. If that happens, expect to see Ashley cry — happy tears of course.
Tune in to watch Ashley Iaconetti freak out with excitement when she meets Kris Jenner on After Paradise Monday night at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
