Kim Kardashian is continuing her efforts to move away from her famous-for-being-famous image. She’s now bagged herself a role in US TV comedy Drop Dead Diva!
The Reality TV star excitedly revealed the news on her blog, “I am so excited to announce that I’ll be guest starring on Drop Dead Diva season four this summer! 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!”
We don’t know who Ben or Stacy are – fans of the show fill us in in the comments box below – but it does sound like Kim really had landed a part that will require some actual acting, and not a just a walk-on cameo. Way to go, Kim!
The show’s executive producer Josh Berman seems equally as excited as Kim about her joining the cast, “I'm ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family. In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I'm blown away by her smarts, sense of humour, and passion. This series is all about reinvention and I'm so excited to see Kim ‘reinvented’ in the world of Drop Dead Diva.”
We bet Kim’s presence on the show will only help to boost Drop Dead Diva’s ratings, and it will no doubt help Kim take her mind off all the negative post-divorce press she’s been getting recently. And she'll have less time to spend Googling herself!
