Kim Kardashian to Become South African Ambassador

We know what you're thinking, a reality show star to be a UN ambassador? The thought of it might sound like a joke, but Kim Kardashian might get the last laugh.

According to sources at, Kim K. was asked at the Empowerment of Africa dinner if she would be interested in becoming an ambassador because the "UN is looking for more influential 'pop culture' celebs to inspire younger generations to become more involved in international affairs."

Apparently she's teaming up with Russell Simmon’s Diamond Empowerment Fund, which is a non-profit international organization with the mission to raise money to support education initiatives that develop and empower economically disadvantaged people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource.

What are your thoughts about Kim becoming an Ambassador? Think it's well deserved?
