After the Episode With Josh: Season 3, Episode 2
Fans want to know more about Jane and Dr. Kendall. A question that popped up a couple times is, why do you think Jane let him sleep over on the first date?
I think Jane got caught up in the moment. She's attracted to and respects Bill Kendall. I don't think Deb ever had one night stands and I believe that Jane looked at their night together as a start of a new relationship. That being said, Jane may regret that decision quite shortly. Be sure to watch the July 10th episode (Season 3, Episode 3!) there are consequences for being impetuous.
Why do you choose to incorporate musical numbers into the show?
We have incredible dancers and singers in our cast. I love to showcase their talent. Also, a musical number is such a great way to express someone's inner desires and feelings in a visual manner. I will never have our actors just break into song or dance, it will always be part of a dream to help illuminate what they are experiencing and feeling.
Alexandra on Twitter has a good question: "Any plans to possibly introduce another person in the same situation as Deb/Jane?"
Not yet. Deb/Jane is one of a kind. That being said, we have an interesting storyline that we're discussing for next year that may deal with that exact scenario.
There are a lot of questions about Grayson's pending nuptials. Kendra swears she sees that Grayson has feelings for Jane/Deb and that he's sees something in her that reminds him of Deb. When will he realize he's rushing into marriage and break off the engagement? Antoinette wants to know if Jane will break up the wedding!
Ah! Love these questions. I don't want to give anything away but I will say this: on the July 17th episode (Season 3, Episode 4) called "The Wedding," all these questions will be answered. The first few episodes culminate in this episode.
Susie asks: "When Jane gave Grayson the "Dream Wedding Planner" album were the things in the album what Deb had wanted for her and Grayson's wedding? Did Grayson realize that when he was looking through it in the office after Jane gave it to him?"
The Wedding Planner was something Deb and Stacy had put together for many years and Deb had added Grayson's photo to the cover just a week or so before she died. Grayson didn't know that Jane was watching him, as he leafed through the pages. He was, however, so impressed and touched by the care that "Jane" put into the book.
Jessie says: "The first season dealt with how plus women are treated in the public eye... and how someone who used to be desired by most mean dealt with the changes in attitude by the public for the difference in her appearance. I started watching "Diva" because I could relate to Jane and how she was treated. Will the third season address more issues?"
That's always an undercurrent in this series. That being said, Jane has grown more comfortable with her appearance. She's also learned that with confidence in herself, some great men have fallen for her, e.g. Tony and now the doctor. But yes, the themes of the first season will certainly be touched upon throughout the series. Also, if you watch carefully, these themes do permeate the second season as well. For those of you who missed Season 2, Lifetime is airing a marathon this Sunday (July 3rd) starting at 10am/9c. Hope you enjoy it!
Super sleuth Susan wants to know: "Did Fred leave the notebook he was writing in while talking to Jane on the phone under the placemat. If so, is there a chance Stacy will find it and cause some fireworks between her and Fred and even Jane?"
Wow! Great eye. That notebook wasn't originally in the script. The actor, Ben Feldman, who is soooo talented, brought that idea to the set. Stacy doesn't find it, but what a clever idea if she had. Susan should be a writer! I love Fred and Stacy and just wait as we evolve their relationship. It's such a pleasure to write for both these actors.
