Kim Kardashian welcomes former inmate Alice Johnson to family dinner

She successfully petitioned Donald Trump for a pardon for convicted drug trafficker Alice Johnson last year.

And in a trailer for Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian is seen welcoming the former prisoner to a family gathering at the home of her half-sister Kendall Jenner.

Johnson, who brought along her sisters Dolores and Patricia, was greeted at the door by Kim, 38, and husband Kanye West, 41, and then introduced to Kendall, Khloe, Kourtney and Kris.

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.
