Drop Dead Diva NewsWelcome to the premiere Diva Dish post — with very special guest and "Drop Dead Diva" Creator and Executive Producer Josh Berman! He's pictured to the left surrounded by some of your favorite "Diva" cast members. With Diva Dish on the "Drop Dead Diva" Blog (and 24/7 on Diva" Facebook and Twitter!) we'll be providing you with news and updates on Season 3, including behind-the-scenes photos, videos and more. Each week leading up to the premiere of Season 3 airing June 19 on Lifetime, Josh Berman will be answering fan questions about the show. Submit yours in the comments below.

First up, let's look at a very popular question asked by one of our Facebook friends, Sadie! Sadie asks Josh: "Are you going to bring on a great male character for Jane to date? Perhaps Tony or someone new?"

Josh Dishes: "Ah! The dating question. Jane's dating life definitely has some ups and downs in Season 3. She's more comfortable with herself and her body, and I think men will be attracted to her new found confidence. Jane is a gorgeous woman and she certainly will attract some new men — but often in unexpected places."

Ooo, we're intrigued! One of our fabulous Tweeters, Carole (aka eclipse70s) asks Josh: "What inspired you to create your great show?"

Josh Dishes: "This is a great question. It was my grandmother. Her name was Debra. She was short, overweight and elderly but she carried herself like a supermodel. She helped raise me and made me believe that I could do anything. I wanted to create a character like my grandmother — someone who I loved, with great self-confidence, but who wasn't a traditional Hollywood beauty. With that in mind, I developed 'Drop Dead Diva' and named our supermodel Deb, in honor of my grandmother."
