Khloe Kardashian wants to become an actress.

The reality TV star is keen to branch out with her career and would love to star in a TV drama which will show off her talents.

A source told The National Enquirer magazine: "Khloe wants to act. She's looking to get into real acting. She would love to work on a scripted TV show, like a sitcom, or even a drama. Her goal is to be taken seriously as an actress.

"She's let her team know she wants to act, and they're putting out feelers to get her some top auditions. She's eager to book something soon."

As well as wanting to act, Khloe - who recently relocated to Dallas, Texas - after her basketball player husband Lamar Odom signed with NBA team the Dallas Mavericks - has also signed a deal to host her own radio show.

The socialite is the host of new programme 'The Mix Up with Khloe Kardashian Odom' which will be broadcast every day on Dallas station MIX 102.9, which is part of Clear Channel Media.

The show is a "one-hour, commercial-free show where Khloe will take requests, chat with her celebrity friends, and more during The Mavericks' season while she's in Dallas with her husband Lamar".
