Serena Williams may be a star on the tennis court, but this summer she's going to rock another kind of court... the court room, that is! Serena just filmed her guest role for an upcoming Season 4 episode of "Drop Dead Diva." Serena will be playing Elisa Shayne's lawyer (which means another guest appearance by Brandy!), as Elisa goes to court with Parker over custody of their son. "On set of @dropdeaddiva with @4everBrandy I can't wait to start shooting our scenes! Should be fun OMG so excited!!!" Serena tweeted.
And we have a hint as to who Serena's character will be facing off with in court. "Look who I'm going up against on @DropDeadDiva today, @serenawilliams. Crazy right?!! Glad its law court and not tennis court!" "DDD" star Kate Levering tweeted from set with the photo above.
What other celebs would you like to see guest star on "Drop Dead Diva" Season 4?
Mark your calendars, set your DVRs, send out premiere party invites to all your friends... just do something fabulous to celebrate, Divas Season 4 officially starts on June 3 at 9/8c! Want to know what to expect from what promises to be the best season yet? Only here you can find the inside scoop...
Season four begins with Jane and Owen enjoying a Roman Holiday in Italy while back at home, the firm is going all sorts of cray under Kim’s leadership. Teri is sent to bring Jane home to take on murder case and Grayson comes to terms with his new feelings for Jane. (Um, do we need to rehash the kiss between Grayson and Stacy on the finale?!) And speaking of the kiss that changed everything, Fred tries to moves on with a new girlfriend, leading Stacy to seek out a relationship guru for love advice, played by the fab Kim Kardashian. (And it's not just because her and I share the same first name...) Watch a preview of Season 4 here.
Oh, and as if I even have to remind you besides Kim K., Season 4 is bringing it with the most amazing guest stars including: Serena Williams, John Ratzenberger (You can thank me later for getting the "Cheers" theme song stuck in your heads), Patty Duke, Megyn Price, Jake T. Austin and Emily Rutherford. Valerie Harper and Brandy will also reprise their roles this season.
Still need a refresher on Season 3? The DVD hits shelves on May 29, which gives you exactly five days before the Season 4 premiere to hole yourself up and do nothing but bask in the amazingness of THEBESTSHOWONTV. (You can pre-order it here.)
In your dream world, what would happen on Season 4 of "Drop Dead Diva"? Who would you like to see get together? What kind of drama do you want to see in (and out!) of the courtroom?
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!!
