Kim Kardashian West may have been a bit late to join the Bridgerton fan community, but she’s all in now. She recently shared on social media that she binge-watched the popular Netflix series set in the Regency Era, England. Like several others, she loved it. So she kind of had a fangirl moment when Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington on the show, revealed that there was a Kardashian connection.
Nicola recently tweeted about how Kim and her family were "a massive inspiration for the Featheringtons," saying that the cast talked about the Kardashians during fittings as well. Nicola’s tweet sent Kim into a frenzy and she retweeted Nicola and said she was “freaking out.”
WHAT?!?! I am freaking out!!!!!! This tweet was sent to me on my @bridgerton group chat! Can I please come to a fitting?!?! It would make my whole life!!!!!! I love you Lady W!!! https://t.co/KVnCi6UZRT

The Bridgerton actress signed off on that and revealed another “Bridgerton/Kardashian” connection and went on further to invite Kim for a fitting on the sets. We wonder if there would be a cameo by Kim on the subsequent seasons of the series.
Omg yesss of course we would love to have you! Also did you know that Mr Pearl made your corset for the Met Gala and the very next one he made was mine for Bridgerton? You’ve been part of the Bridgerton world for longer than you know!

Bridgerton is based on Julia Quinn’s novels and is produced by Shonda Rhimes and created and directed by Chris van Dusen. It has broken ground on the basis that it does not adhere to historical racial bias and stars several coloured actors in key roles. It has been renewed for season 2, 3 and 4 by Netflix.
