Well, looky look at Kim Kardashian making her way in the acting world!
Access Hollywood has confirmed that the reality star will join the cast of Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva” for a recurring role in Season 4 of the show. Kim will play Nikki, a new love interest for angel-on-earth Fred (Ben Feldman). The new relationship will definitely stir up some trouble for Fred’s ex-girlfriend, Stacy (April Bowlby), who Nikki will team up with on a new business venture.
“I’m ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family,” creator and executive producer Josh Berman said in a statement. “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.’”
The show, which stars Brooke Elliott, begins filming its fourth season, next month, and will premiere in the summertime.
Meanwhile, Kim also has a role in the upcoming Tyler Perry flick, The Marriage Counselor, set to hit theaters on July 27, 2012!
Kim may only be famous for being on a reality show (among…other things), but she’s an entrepreneur. Say what you want about Kim, but you can’t say that she doesn’t get PAID! And Lifetime and Tyler Perry are very smart in casting her, because they will definitely pick up new viewers, just off of the fact that Kim was featured in their work. It’s a win-win. I can’t knock the hustle!
