Afterwards, Kourtney took to acting in scripted shows as she landed herself a role on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live. Critics were not fond of her performance on the show and the role didn't last long for Kourtney, which sent her running back to her life as a reality TV star.

She also became a spokeswoman/representative, with varying degrees of success. Though she and her sisters were the faces of the Quick Trim diet supplement, the advertising used for the product was said to be false, resulting in a lawsuit against the Kardashian sisters. Yet as the representative for Perfect Skincare products, Kourtney, and her sisters enjoyed success. In addition, they also teamed up for the release of a jewelry line by the Virgins, Saints and Angels brand.
