What do Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Minnillo have in common? Aside from both going out at one time with Nick Lachey, they’ll both be guest starring in an upcoming episode of CSI: NY along with Minnillo’s former TRL costar LaLa Vasquez and the members of the band Train.

“The ladies play two women who’ve managed to concoct a very interesting scheme that ends in murder,” Executive Producer Pam Veasey tells PEOPLE of the episode, which airs Dec. 16 on CBS.

“I am so excited to be working with Vanessa again,” Kardashian says. “I am fascinated by crime scene investigating. I swear, I wish I was a crime scene investigator sometimes!”

Minnillo and Kardashian appeared together in Disaster Movie and Kardashian also recently appeared on an episode of FOX’s sitcom Brothers.

“I’m having such a good time expanding my roles,” Kardashian says. “I truly love branching out into different characters.” –Lisa Ingrassia and Jennifer GarciaGregg DeGuire/PictureGroup; INF
