LeAnn Rimes has said that people will get to see a new side of her when she guest stars on the new season of Drop Dead Diva this weekend.

In March, it was reported that Rimes would play the ex-wife of a celebrity on trial for a hit-and-run as part of the show's season three premiere. Rimes has since claimed that she has wanted to appear on the show for some time, ever since the producers offered her a different guest role last year.

"The character they offered me the first time was the complete opposite of this one. I loved it but the timing wasn't right," the singer revealed to PopEater. "They wrote this character specifically for me, hoping I'd do it."

"I loved it when I read it," Rimes said of her role. "I love playing the scorned ex-wife of a TV star."

Rimes made headlines last year following her extramarital affair with new husband Eddie Cibrian, and added that she remains wary of producers trying to capitalise on the attention surrounding her private life.

"I didn't feel that this was [like that]. There are enough differences between my life, what I've experienced, and this [role]," she explained. "People don't normally see me in roles like this."

Rimes's appearance on Drop Dead Diva airs tonight at 9pm ET on Lifetime.
