Kim Kardashian lands love interest role on “Drop Dead Diva”

Maybe an actual angel from heaven — or at least purgatory — will finally be the one to win Kim Kardashian’s heart for good. Or least for a multiple-episode story arc. On a fictional television show.

Kardashian has landed a guest-starring role on the fourth season of the Lifetime favorite Drop Dead Diva, playing Nikki, the new paramour of Jane’s adorable guardian angel, Fred (Ben Feldman, right). But the very unreal gent faces some very real romantic challenges when Nikki teams up with his former dream girl — and Jane’s bestie — Stacy (April Bowlby) in a new business venture.

“I’m ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family,” said series creator and executive producer Josh Berman in a statement released by Lifetime. “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.”

The show’s fourth season will premiere this summer.
