"I begged, begged, begged for the role," the pretty blonde reality TV star recently told reporters in New York, adding that when she heard Warner Bros. was making a "Dukes" movie, she all but "knocked down producer Billy Gerber's door" because she wanted the part of the butt-kicking country girl so badly.
"I grew up in Texas, so I watched a lot of the re-runs of the TV show," she recalled.
"I was young when they came out. Me and my cousins would play 'Dukes of Hazzard' and I was always Daisy. I like the whole idea of 'Dukes of Hazzard.' It's a great family that fights for each other all the time and just has a really cool bond and that's something that I've always loved. The spirit of the TV show is something that I really loved."
