Kim Kardashian Kast on Drop Dead Diva
Drop Dead Diva. It’s not just a request many people make when they meet Kim Kardashian. It’s also this reality star’s new gig.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Kim has actually landed a recurring role on the Lifetime drama, which averaged 2.3 million viewers last year. She’ll appear on multiple season four episodes as Nikki, a love interest for the character Ben.
“In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I [was] blown away by her smarts, sense of humor and passion,”executive producer Josh Berman said, clearly brain-washed by Kris Jenner. “This series is all about reinvention and I’m so excited to see Kim ‘reinvented’ in the world of Drop Dead Diva.”
The series stars Brooke Elliott as a shallow model who gets killed and then reincarnated as a thoughtful, overweight lawyer.
Kardashian has already appeared on episodes of 90210, CSI: NY and How I Met Your Mother and she’ll play a key role in Tyler Perry’s movie, The Marriage Counselor.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we must go erase Drop Dead Diva from our DVR.
