Kim Kardashian Goes to Jail? Wears Prison Orange for 'Drop Dead Diva'
Kim Kardashian goes to jail, but she didn't do anything wrong.
The reality star donned a prison orange jumpsuit for an upcoming episode of Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva."
Kardashian has guest-starred on several episodes of the series, playing relationship guru Nikki LePree, a woman who befriended Stacy (April Bowlby), only to steal the young woman's life's savings when the blonde handed it over so they could open a pake shop together (pake = pie + cake).
The law catches up with Nikki in the upcoming episode, according to reports. Nikki landed in the slammer because Stacy has too many parking tickets, according to the Huffington Post.

Nancy Grace will also appear in the episode with Kardashian, playing herself.
"I'm ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family," creator and executive producer Josh Berman told E! News about Kardashian's role in the series. "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.'"
Kardashian's extended appearance wasn't planned, but Berman liked what he saw.
"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 to those," Berman previously told The Hollywood Reporter.
The episode of "Drop Dead Diva" will air on Aug. 26 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
