Reality television star Kim Kardashian continues to push into scripted roles, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog, which reports that Lifetime’s "Drop Dead Diva" has tapped her for a recurring role.
Kardashian will play Nikki, who becomes a partner with Stacy in a new business, the story says. She will appear in the show’s season debut, which is scheduled for this summer, the piece adds.
"In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I’m blown away by her smarts, sense of humor and passion," show creator Josh Berman said about Kardashian.
The new role comes after Kardashian was booked as a guest star on the Tim Allen comedy "Last Man Standing," the story adds.
