A close friend of the Kardashian family, Malika Haqq, is being lined up to star in the upcoming series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Malika Haqq is in talks for next year's 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 33-year-old star is wanted for the next series of the Channel 5 reality TV show in January as bosses are hoping she will reveal the "darkest secrets" of the Kardashian clan - the biggest family in showbiz which she's close to - if she inks a deal with producers over the next coming months.
A source said: "The Kardashians are facing the new year from hell. If Malika ends up going in she's likely to reveal plenty about them.
"Malika is a shoulder to cry on for Khloe and regularly spends time with the entire Kardashian family.
"She knows all the sisters' darkest secrets."
Malika is said to have been offered a six-figure sum after Amber Rose asked for £800,000 recently.
The insider added to the Daily Star newspaper: "Amber was asking for way too much. Malika is likely to cost much less and will be just as good for the show."
Meanwhile, it wouldn't be the first time a member of the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashian' clan has taken part in 'CBB' as Kim Kardashian West's best friend Jonathan Cheban was a contestant for just a week last January.
The 42-year-old PR maven had been struggling to cope during his time on the reality television show and regularly complained of feeling claustrophobic.
He said while in the Diary Room at the time: "Right now I'm feeling a little bit edgy and claustrophobic. I'm definitely a little bit torn on whether to stay. There's a point when my mental stability is more important that entertaining.
"I know Big Brother would not want me pain especially when I give 24 hour entertainment."
Later talking to his best friend in the house 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Gemma Collins, the bubbly blonde encouraged him to stick it out, adding that it would help boost his UK profile.
But Jonathan responded: "It's not that, I'm huge here. We're ['Keeping Up With the Kardashians] on in 180 countries!"
He agreed to stay for another day and see if it improved, but later told a producer in the Diary Room: "I feel like it's closing in, there's no room to hide so until I get out of here I'm not going to be calm."
