Kim Kardashian is not trying to score a role on “Downton Abbey,” despite a false report. Gossip Cop exclusively confirms with a rep for the star that it’s not true she wants a part on the popular series.

The Sun was the first outlet to inaccurately claim Kardashian was “desperate” to appear on “Downton Abbey,” and even quoted the reality star as saying she would “love” to be on the show. “I’m a big fan, I’d love to be on it if they asked,” Kardashian supposedly said. “I love things like that.”

The British paper further alleged that Kardashian even contacted Laura Carmichael, who plays Lady Edith Crawley, to help her land a spot on the drama. Naturally, dozens of other outlets, such as the Perez Hilton, the Daily Mail, and HollywoodLife, picked up the story and ran it as fact, without even bothering to check its accuracy. But a rep for Kardashian tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the quotes in The Sun that were picked up and reprinted all over are “false” and made up.

Kardashian, however, did recently have a very real TV gig, albeit an animated one. As Gossip Cop reported, she appeared on last Sunday’s “American Dad.”
