Kim Kardashian is officially becoming a “Diva.”

The reality star joined the cast of Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva” for a multi-episode arc in Season 4, Access Hollywood has confirmed.

According to Lifetime, Kim will play Nikki, a new love interest for angel-on-earth Fred (Ben Feldman).

Nikki, however, will no doubt create drama as she partner’s with Fred’s ex-girlfriend, Stacy (April Bowlby), on a new business venture.

“I’m ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family,” creator and executive producer Josh Berman said in a statement. “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, which stars Brooke Elliott, begins filming its fourth season, next month.

“Drop Dead Diva” returns to Lifetime in the summer.
