Season 4 keeps getting sweeter! On the heels of the announcement that "Cougar Town" star Ian Gomez will be guest starring on "Drop Dead Diva," another prime time star is joining the roster. "Saving Grace" actress Lorraine Toussaint will make an appearance on the eighth episode of Season 4, playing Jane's former law professor, Gretchen Daily.
In the episode, Professor Daily invites her former student, Jane, and Grayson to lecture one of her classes at Stanford Law School. The attorneys then begin to help one of the students with a case against a Silicon Valley company. But of course, nothing comes easy when they realize they have to face off against Professor Daily, who was hired to defend the company.
And I know I keep harping, but don't forget to watch the Season 4 premiere of "Drop Dead Diva" on June 3 at 9/8c! Creator and executive producer Josh Berman said in last week's Diva Dish that "a lot of big secrets [will be] divulged!"

"On set of @dropdeaddiva with @4everBrandy I can't wait to start shooting our scenes! Should be fun OMG so excited!!!" Serena tweeted.

Brandy is BACK for Season 4! The singer and actress will reprise her role as Elisa Shayne, Parker's blast-from-the-past ex who came back into his life at the end of Season 3. Elisa originally came to the firm in Episode 11 for Parker's legal help, but the two reunited in other ways when Parker discovered their child and rediscovered his feelings for his ex. When we last left our Divas, Parker left the firm (and Kim) behind to go after Elisa and their son in Chicago.
On the edge of your seat yet with the mere memory?!
That brings us to our next piece of guest star scoop: tennis star Serena Williams will join the cast as Elisa's lawyer. As an ex AND an ex-employee of Harrison Parker, you might be wondering why Elisa would have to go outside the firm for legal help. Well, Divas, Serena will represents Elisa when she and Parker go to court over custody of their son. Yikes!
According to EW the show's creator and executive producer Josh Berman approached Serena Williams to come on "Drop Dead Diva" Season 4 when he found out she was a fan. The writers then wrote the part specifically for her. Welcome, Serena and the warmest welcome back, Brandy!!
Are you excited to see Brandy return for "Drop Dead Diva" Season 4? Do she and Parker still have a chance?! Sound off below!

We have our first "Drop Dead Diva" casting announcement for Season 4 and this guest star news is k-razy exciting! When "Diva" returns this Summer on Lifetime, none other than the gorgeous Kim Kardashian will join the cast for a multiple-episode arc (!!) starting with the season premiere. The Diva extraoidanaire Tweeted the announcement just moments ago, telling all the Twittersphere: "So excited to announce that I'll be guest starring on @DropDeadDiva Season 4 this summer!!" Hey, Kim? Yeah. Us too!!
So let's talk deets: on the Season 3 Finale, Jane caught Grayson and Stacy's misguided kiss. Yikes. Then, at the airport when Fred was all, "I'm going to propose to Stacy," Jane spilled the beans, crushing our angel's dreams of wedded bliss with his blonde boo. When Season 4 begins, we'll meet Kim Kardashian's character Nikki Fred’s new love interest (omg omg omg omg omg omg omg) who partners with Stacy in a new business venture (insert more omgs here).
"Drop Dead Diva" creator and executive producer Josh Berman reveals a little more about Kim and her character: "I'm ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family. In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I'm blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion. This series is all about reinvention and I'm so excited to see Kim 'reinvented' in the world of 'Drop Dead Diva.'"
Fellow "Diva" newbie Lex Medlin (aka Judge Owen) Tweeted his excitement and plans for reinvention too: "Holy Crap! Kim Kardashian is joining us on DDD for a few episodes. I better lose some weight." Oh, Lex, we love you just the way you are and are sure Kim will too ;) I'm not so sure her character on "Drop Dead Diva" Teri will be as welcoming, but star Margaret Cho Tweeted her support to Kim K, saying: "@kimkardashian super excited to have you on @dropdeaddiva welcome!"
I can't wait to fill all of the Divas in on what's coming up on the show! Believe it or not, this is only the beginning with the writers writing and the Season 4 to start filming in February.
