Brandy is making a diva return to television! Congrats are in order for the singer, who has landed a juicy recurring role on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, which returns Sunday June 19 (9/8c). TV’s former Moesha will appear in the season’s final three episodes this September as sexy nurse Elisa Shayne, an old flame of attorney J. Parker.
“Drop Dead Diva is on my favorites’ list,” Brandy tells Keck exclusively. “And I am so thrilled that I get to be on it for at least three episodes. And such a juicy role!” Adds series creator Josh Berman, “When I met Brandy, I knew immediately she was perfect for this role. I just wanted to hug her — which is exactly how the audience will feel. She’s sweet and warm and drop dead gorgeous! Plus, she was my favorite on Dancing With the Stars — along with our series regular, Margaret Cho.”
Brandy goes on to say, “I’m excited to play a woman with a secret that could have such a huge impact on other characters.” Berman confirms it’s “a big secret that no one will see coming.” And one that could likely lead to Brandy’s return in Season 4. “We are leaving her return open, but we have discussed it,” Berman says. “And want to keep that option open.”
