Reality star Kim Kardashian may not take love advice, but she can sure dish it out.
That's what she does in her guest-starring role on the fourth season premiere of "Drop Dead Diva," airing Sunday on Lifetime, cable 36.
Kardashian, of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and 72-day marriage fame plays juice bar staffer Nikki LePree who fills drink orders and supplies relationship advice.
In the episode, she counsels model Stacy (April Bowlby) who's still in love with her ex-boyfriend who is in a relationship with someone new.
When Stacy tells Nikki that she has quite the reputation for giving advice, Kardashian has a tongue-in-cheek retort.
"I hate it when people talk about me," says Kardashian as the character. (But not so in real life. The reality star's career has been built via publicity and social media.)
Nikki advises the model to tell her ex how she feels.
"Now is the time to make bold moves," the character says in a preview of the episode. And, when the young woman agrees, she adds: "Good, and don't leave anything on the table. Undergarments are optional."
Her family's series "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" returned for a new season Sunday on E!, cable 60, and will air opposite Kim's "Drop Dead Diva" episodes for three weeks.
Kardashian, 31, has kept the media fires burning with her ongoing relationship with musician and record label owner Kanye West, who is releasing his own new album this summer, and her ongoing divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries. Humphries is asking for an annulment on the basis of fraud on his wife's part.
Kardashian is set to appear in two more episodes of "Drop Dead Diva" this summer.
