Kim Kardashian may have flexed her acting skills in a small VMA commercial alongside funnyman Kevin Hart and her beau Kanye West, but this time, it’s landing her behind bars.
The reality starlet rocked an orange jumpsuit while filming an upcoming episode of Lifetime’s ‘Drop Dead Diva.’ While the famed Kardashian sister has made several appearances on the show before as love guru Nikki Le Pree, it seems that her criminal past catches up to her.
According to the Huffington Post, she apparently swindles Stacy Pakery’s (played by April Bowlby) life savings after planning to open a ‘pake’ (pie + cake) shop together. Nancy Grace will also star in the show as herself.
“I’m ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family,” creator and executive producer Josh Berman told E! News about the Kardashian’s involvement. “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.’”
Catch Kimmy on the Aug. 26 premiere at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
