Kim Kardashian on "Drop Dead Diva"

I’ve tried ardently in the past to make this blog a Kim Kardashian-free zone.

Up to this point, I’ve been fairly successful.

But promises are made to be broken. This item is about (ulp!) Kim Kardashian. (Feel free to click away if this offends you.)

A few months ago, she came here to shoot a role in Tyler Perry’s “The Marriage Counselor,” an event that was covered by my colleague Jennifer Brett in Buzz.

Kardashian will be returning to metro Atlanta (more specifically, Peachtree City) to shoot a multi-episode role on Lifetime’s fourth season of “Drop Dead Diva.” The dramedy begins production in February for airing in the summer.

Though ratings dipped a bit last season, averaging 2.3 million viewers, “Drop Dead Diva” remains a very strong performer for the network.

According to a press release, Kardashian will play Nikki, Fred’s (Ben Feldman) new love interest who partners with his ex Stacy (April Bowlby) in a new business venture.

“I’m blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion,” said creator Josh Berman in a press release. “This series is all about reinvention and I’m so excited to see Kim ‘reinvented’ in the world of Drop Dead Diva.”

The show has built a reputation as a guest-star magnet, including many other folks who draw plenty of haters such as Kathy Griffin, Rosie O’Donnell and Liza Minnelli. Kardashian certainly falls in that category.

@Josh Berman
Do you actually think she’s going to help you pick up more ratings? You must be the only person to be blown away by her smarts,sense of humor and passion because the rest of us are sick of anything Kardashian. I love Drop Dead Diva and I think the show can stand on it’s on without fake Kardashian. @Rodney you promised us no Kim please stick to your promises. Smarts really I want to see that, sense of humor yeah she’s laughing all the way to the bank off of people to dumb to see that she is a fake,no talent, selfish,evil, stuck up, greedy woman who only cares about herself. And now 2 younger version of Kim are being slammed down our throats by her pimp mom

You know, I’ve never heard of anyone with a brain liking her; only flaming gays, hags, BAPS, rappers and black athletes.

And you’ve done so well Rodney. Between begging and an AI tie in (Ryan), you stood your ground. Now, she gets a blog based on her infamy, fitting actually.

When she gets here – everyone just freaking ignore her. That would completely tick her off.

Kathy Griffin, Rosie O’Donnell…Kardashian certainly falls in that category.

What category is that? C and D list celebrities?

Kim K., as with all people, have as much power and attention as the general public gives her. Unfortunately, the general public just ain’t too smart!

why???

Yet you all take time out of your busy(???) schedules to read articles about this broad and even more time comment….WOW….I’m sure that’s gonna make her go away. More free marketing for yet another one of her theatrical endeavors….And for that, she thanks you.

Kim’s taste in mates is scary; she should be looking for what her Mom has: an obedient former Olympian puppy.

Kim is smart and has done a great job at building her brand. Don’t understand all the hate. If you don’t want to read anything about her and want her to go away so bad why do you all continue to read articles/blogs about her and use your valuable time to comment?????

Wow, Tracy sounds like she is one of those angry, jealous size 22 black women.

And Lucille Ball, bless your heart, I thought that southerners welcomed people with a smile and talked about you behind their backs.

I guess times have changed.
