It looks like Kim Kardashian is headed to the slammer!

Not for real though. She's donning an orange jumpsuit for an upcoming appearance on Lifetime show Drop Dead Diva! She's been guest-starring on the show as relationship guru Nikki LePree, but it looks like her appearances may be branching out to other characters as well.

Naturally, the creators of the show are stoked to have snagged an A-lister like Kim. "I'm ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family," said creator and executive producer Josh Berman. "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.'"

Her appearance on the show was only supposed to be a few episodes originally, but Kim apparently has more acting chops than even the show's producers realized. “We wrote her a three episode arc. But, once she got on set and I was with her, I got to see what her strengths were and we got to write those (extra episodes)," said Josh.
