Whitney Port is a shy girl no longer – at least not in her newest role.

The laid-back former cast member of The Hills, 28, appears as an animated version of herself in the CWSeed‘s cartoon series, Gallery Mallory, which airs Port’s episode online Thursday.

In the episode, the TV personality visits the art gallery of sarcastic and bitter Mallory, the show’s star.

“I absolutely loved being animated,” Port tells PEOPLE. “It was a cool kind of out-of-body experience. Plus, it was so fun to have an attitude that I don’t normally have. Everyone must watch!”

The comedy series focuses on the real-life celebrities encountered by over-educated and bitterly under-employed Mallory, a stylish, acerbic twenty-something doing the bare minimum working at a Soho art gallery in Manhattan.

NBA star Chris Bosh, talk show personality Maury Povich and Vampire Diaries actress Kat Graham are all included in the list of other guest voices on the show this season.
