Kathy Griffin on Drop Dead DivaWe're gearing up for another day of exciting Season 3 guest star scoop on the "Drop Dead Diva" Blog! The upcoming season is promising to be the funniest yet, with the always hilarious Wendy Williams and Wanda Sykes joining the cast as judges for an episode each. What more could be up creator Josh Berman's sleeves, you ask? On the show, Kate Levering's character Kim is a (super smart, super hot, overall fabulous) force to be reckoned with — so it only makes sense that the woman fit to play her sister on "Drop Dead Diva" is spitfire comedian Kathy Griffin!

Kathy Griffin is joining the cast of "Drop Dead Diva" for an episode in Season 3 as Kim's sis — and someone who does not get along with Jane's assistant Teri, played by Margaret Cho. Comedians Kathy and Margaret go way back and Griffin joked that playing Cho's arch-nemesis for an episode was the "role I was born to play." Margaret Tweeted Wednesday morning: "So excited to have @iamwandasykes and @kathygriffin on ddd this season!" We couldn't agree more!

UPDATE, 05.17.11: Kathy Griffin Tweeted earlier today that she is filming for her role on "Drop Dead Diva"! Actors Jackson Hurst and Kate Levering have also been Tweeting about Kathy's time on set.

Tune in to the all-new episode featuring Kathy Griffin Sunday, August 14 at 9 pm/8c on Lifetime!
