In the trailer, Johnson is seen showing Kim how to make biscuits from scratch before sitting down for dinner with the reality TV clan. 

While prepping the meal together in the kitchen, Kim tells Johnson: ‘When I was pleading your case to the president, I was like, ‘She has family that she can live with. And she has job offers’.’ 

Since her release last summer from an Alabama correctional facility where she was serving a lifer sentence, Johnson, 63, has been given a joint book and movie deal to tell her story. 

She told momager Kris Jenner over dinner that she has been living in Arizona with her daughters who has eight-month-old twins.

The scenes took place at Kendall’s pad because the visit came while Kim and Kanye had evacuated their Hidden Hills mansion due to the Woolsey Fire in November that scorched almost 100,000 acres of land in northern Los Angeles County and southern Ventura County.  

Johnson is one of 17 people to have been freed from prison thanks to the Buried Alive Project that was co-founded by attorney Brittany K. Barnett and former inmates Sharanda Jones and Corey Jacobs.

It’s been reported that Kim has been helping to fund the project.

Since she intervened on behalf of Johnson, the E! reality star has taken a liking to criminal justice reform and is seeking to pass the California State Bar and become a lawyer. 

A month ago, it was revealed that Kim had also offered to pay the rent of Matthew Charles, a former inmate who was released from prison after serving 20 years of his 35-year sentence for non-violent drug and weapon charges. 

She has also visited the notorious San Quentin prison where convicted murderer Kevin Cooper, whom she is trying to free, is behind bars.

Kevin Cooper has been on death row for 33 years for the murders of four people, including two 10-year-old children.

It has been claimed an advanced DNA test could exonerate him.
