From EURWeb: Brandy Norwood is back with her feet on the gas pedal with appearances – since 2010 – that include a reality show with her brother Ray J on VH1, “Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business;” ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars”; CW’s “90210”; BET’s “The Game,” a recurring role as Chardonnay; her recurring role as Elisa Shayne on “Drop Dead Diva” on the Lifetime Channel, and Tyler Perry’s “The Marriage Counselor” due out summer, 2012. On July 8, 2012 her last episode for this season on “Drop Dead Diva” will air at 9 p.m.
The comedic drama is about a wannabe model that dies suddenly, but her soul is now in the body of a brilliant, plus size, recently deceased attorney – Jane. Brandy’s character Elisa is a former girlfriend of Jay Parker, a soul also returned in another body. Elisa is an attorney at the firm also who fled town with her son after it became public that Parker (played by Josh Stamberg) is the father.
“I related to her in so many ways,” said Grammy winning Brandy about her character, Elisa Shayne. “I had my daughter at 23. I’ve struggled…I have all that to pull from.”
In the episode with Brandy she gets to work with tennis pro Serena Williams who also makes a guest appearance as an attorney. Elisa is still a bit in love with Jay, but doesn’t want to get her heart broken again by him (because he cheated on her in the past).
When asked what advice Brandy would give her character Elisa she said, “I’d tell her to keep doing what she is doing, fight for what’s right. Don’t let fear hold you back. I try not to have regrets. I face my fears always. I never let my fears hold me back. I would feel guilty. Like with ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I didn’t know how great I would be, but I tried to face it.”
