Kim Kardashian, Prison Orange, And Honey Boo BooBy: Amanda Crum - August 15, 2012
Kim Kardashian has made a few appearances on the show “Drop Dead Diva”, but she’s about to make one in a very unlikely costume: a prison jumpsuit.
Kim plays Nikki Lepree, a woman who steals Stacy’s life savings rather than investing it in the business they agreed to open together, and in the next episode–airing Sunday–Nikki’s antics finally get her into trouble and she’s carted off to jail. The show’s executive producer, Josh Berman, says he’s ecstatic to have Kim on the show.
“I’m ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family. 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’,” he said.
While the public is fascinated to see a Kardashian behind bars–even if it’s just for a TV show–my favorite new Kim K news is that she apparently quoted Honey Boo Boo Child, the breakout star of TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras” and its spinoff, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. Honey Boo Boo, in turn, sang a little song about her newest fan.
