LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva” is returning to the airwaves in June – and it’s bringing Kim Kardashian along with it.

The show’s fourth, 13-episode season will kick off June 3 at 9 p.m. with a season premiere featuring reality TV queen Kim Kardashian, who’s beginning a multiple-episode run with the show.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star will have a recurring role this season as Nikki LePree, a famed relationship guru (something of an irony, given Kardashian’s track record on that front) who Stacy turns to for advice after her former flame Fred moves on with a new love interest.

Other guest stars for the season include Serena Williams, Brandy Norwood, Patty Duke, Valerie Harper and former “Cheers” star John Ratzenberger, who will hopefully regale the cast with useless trivia of suspect accuracy.

In addition to the guest stars, “Drop Dead Diva” has added two regular cast members this season, Carter MacIntyre and Lex Medlin.

“Drop Dead Diva” tells the story of a shallow wannabe model who dies in a sudden accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, plus-size and recently deceased attorney, Jane. The upcoming season begins with Jane vacationing in Italy while her firm flounders back at home under the leadership of a colleague.
