The actress will play a rival of Dallas (Cheryl Hines) when she appears in the ABC comedy, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Givens's character Tulsa, who is described as a "wolf in zebra print clothing", has known Dallas since their sorority days, but has always attempted to hurt her in any way possible.
Givens is expected to appear in Suburgatory's 17th episode, which is currently due to air in March.
She has previously starred in shows such as Head of the Class and Sparks. More recently, she had a guest spot in Chuck.
Suburgatory airs on Wednesdays at 8.30/7.30c on ABC.
