WATCH: Kourtney Kardashian's Acting Debut on 'One Life to Live'

The reality star flaunts her acting chops on the daytime soap, playing a lawyer with a flair for -- what else? -- drama!

Hey, if Snoop Dogg can guest-star on One Life to Live, why not Kourtney Kardashian? On Monday, the 31-year-old reality star made her acting debut with a guest appearance on the ABC soap opera, playing saucy personal injury lawyer Kassandra Kavanaugh in several scenes with OLTL's David Fumero.

"I grew up watching One Life to Live," Kardashian tells E!. "This may be my acting debut, but the Kardashians know a thing or two about drama."

Kourtney was less sure of herself when talking about her acting stint on her E! reality show Kourtney & Kim Take New York. "I'd thought I'd have two lines," she said on the show. "But my script is so long... I'm not an actress."

Viewers might tend to agree that this natural drama queen would be wise to stick to her day job -- playing herself on TV. Though the soap writers clearly tried to create a character with a personality (and even initials!) similar to her own, Kardashian's attempt at portraying a sassy, tough girl is about as wooden as it gets. The whole exercise would have gone much more smoothly if they'd simply let her play a heightened version of herself. 

Need evidence? Just watch her describe the experience in this clip from Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Here, she's in her comfort zone, simply talking to the camera -- and her 30-second description of her butterflies during the kissing scene is way more interesting than the scene itself. Watch Kourtney's One Life to Live acting debut in the video below and judge for yourself!
