Is the acting world really taking Kim Kardashian seriously? It sure looks that way now that she has landed herself a recurring role on the Lifetime show ‘Drop Dead Diva’.
Kim Kardashian the actress, get used to that my friends because for some reason Hollywood seems to think the reality star can act. I personally am a huge fan of Kim’s but even I don’t have a whole lot of faith in her acting abilities. That being said I was very surprised that she actually landed herself a recurring role on the hit Lifetime show.
The network confirmed on Thursday that Kardashian will be playing the role of Nikki, who is the love interest for Ben and just so happens to be working on a business venture with Ben’s ex. Oh yes it looks like a love triangle is in store of Kim’s character. Drop Dead Diva will air sometime this summer. No official start date has been released yet, however the character of Nikki will appear in the very first episode the season.
Landing a recurring role on an already established show is just the latest acting gig that the middle Kardashian sister has landed in recent months. First there was the news of her role in Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor and then a guest starring role on the Tim Allen show Last Man Standing. The later will air in February on ABC.
All of these new acting jobs certainly have me wondering if Kim will be giving up her reality TV life for well a serious acting life. Considering a huge part of the family business in reality TV shows and that E! Networks is all about keeping the Kardashians on air something tells me that Kimmie isn’t going anywhere. Although I have to say as long as Khloe is on the shows I don’t really care who else is on because she is my fave. Those are my thoughts what you think of Kim Kardashian the actress?
