Kim Kardashian's character on Drop Dead Diva might "hate when people talk about me," but people will likely be talking about the reality star's transition to non-reality TV acting. Considering other reality stars' less than impressive acting stints (we're looking at you, Paris Hilton), we're happy that Kardashian looks like she'll be legitimately good when she makes her debut as (irony alert!) love guru Nikki LePree on the show's June 3 season premiere.
A minute-long snippet of Kardashian's three-episode guest stint has made its way online, and it introduces the 31-year-old as a juice bar worker who's known for giving great relationship advice. In the clip, struggling model Stacy (April Bowlby) turns to Nikki in her time of need. That need to get her ex back -- despite the fact that he's now with another woman. Watch it now!
"Now is the time to make bold moves," Nikki advises. "And don't leave anything on the table. Well, undergarments optional!"
And of course Kardashian does know her way around a scripted television show's set. In addition to her brief cameo on 30 Rock's recent live episode, she has also appeared on CSI: NY, Last Man Standing and Beyond the Break.
Apparently, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made quite an impression on her Drop Dead Diva costars during her time on set.
"I'm blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion," show creator Josh Berman tells Us Weekly. "This series is all about reinvention and I'm so excited to see Kim 'reinvented' in the world of Drop Dead Diva."
Drop Dead Diva returns to Lifetime at 9 p.m. EST on June 3, with Kardashian slated to appear in this season's first three episodes.
