“Diva” Actress: Kim Kardashian Lands New Television Role

Reality star Kim Kardashian appears to be rapidly pursuing an acting career. First, Tyler Perry cast Kim in his new film The Marriage Counselor, which wrapped in early December. Then Kim landed a guest-starring role (albeit as herself) on a February episode of ABC’s Last Man Standing. Now, Kim is joining the cast for Season 4 of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva.

Kim enthusiastically posted the news and some further details on her blog: “My character is called Nikki, who is Ben’s new love interest and starts a business venture with his ex, Stacy! I can’t wait to get to work with everyone on set!!”

Diva’s creator and executive producer Josh Berman tells The Hollywood Reporter he’s equally as thrilled and already impressed with Kim on a number of levels. Josh says: “In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I'm blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion. This series is all about reinvention and I'm so excited to see Kim ‘reinvented’ in the world of Drop Dead Diva.” Season 4 is scheduled to premiere this summer.
