Drop Dead Diva has a brand new girl in town: Kim Kardashian!
Guest-starring on the Lifetime hit for its fourth season, Kardashian, 31, portrays juice bar worker Nikki LePree, a woman who finds herself unexpectedly doling out relationship advice when she’s not filling drink orders.
In this preview of the show’s June 3 premiere, Kardashian — who divorced Kris Humphries in October and is now dating Kanye West — encounters struggling model Stacy (April Bowlby), who still pines for her ex.
“You have quite the reputation. Everyone at yoga says you’re a relationship guru,” Stacy tells a flattered Kardashian, likening her to “Dr. Phil, but without the mustache.”
Eager to help, Kardashian’s Nikki offers a key piece of advice to lovelorn Stacy: Be assertive. “Now is the time to make bold moves,” her character suggests. “And don’t leave anything on the table. Well, undergarments optional!”
Reality star Kardashian clearly impressed her Drop Dead Diva costars and crew during filming, and the show’s creator, Josh Berman, tells Us Weekly his new guest star was a total pro.
“I’m blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion,” Berman told Us at the time of Kardashian’s casting. “This series is all about reinvention and I’m so excited to see Kim ‘reinvented’ in the world of Drop Dead Diva.”
