Reality television star Kourtney Kardashian will be making her professional acting debut in a guest appearance on ABC's One Life to Live. Kardashian will tape the scenes tomorrow, though they will not air until well into 2011.
"I grew up watching One Life to Live," Kourtney told the cable channel E! "I hear I get into some trouble and I am looking forward to it. This may be my acting debut, but the Kardashians know a thing or two about drama."
ABC is being tight-lipped about how Kardashian will fit into the show's story, but it has been made quite clear that the celebutant will not be playing herself. Soap Central has learned, however, that Kardashian will appear in scenes with David Fumero (Cristian Vega) and Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer).
"I think this will be great for OLTL," DePaiva posted on her Twitter page. "I'm looking forward to tomorrow."
Celebrity tattle site TMZ reports that Kardashian will play an attorney.
It isn't just One Life to Live's cameras that will capture Kardashian's soap opera debut. E! will also be rolling its cameras to capture material for its reality series, Kourtney and Kim Take New York. The upcoming Gotham-based saga is a spinoff of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians series.
Kardshian is the daughter of former O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. She and sisters Khloe and Kim are well-known socialites.
Kardashian's first scenes will air in March 2011.
