Since the number one question on your minds is usually "what will happen in Jane's love life?!?!" I know I'm not the only one who would die to intervene and play Cupid for some of our favorite "Drop Dead Diva" characters. But in Season 3 (premiering June 19!) it's time for the real deal, Ms. Millionaire Matchmaker herself, Patti Stanger to do the deed as a guest star on Season 3 of the show!
TVGuide's William Keck exclusively revealed today that Patti will appear on a Season 3 episode of "Drop Dead Diva" as a dating-show guru who makes enemies with Harrison & Parker's true dream team: Jane and Teri.
But will she be fixing up any of your favorite single (or taken?!) Divas? Read more about Patti Stanger on Season 3 of "Drop Dead Diva" here on TVGuide.com!
UPDATE, 6/2/2011: It looks like Patti Stanger may be doing more than just working her matchmaking magic on the show today, actress Kate Levering (who plays Kim on the show!) Tweeted that she was getting some "fabulous love advice" from the dating diva herself! Ooo, us next, please?!
Which "Drop Dead Diva" character do you think needs the most help from Patti Stanger?
We'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!
Tune in to the all-new episode featuring Kathy Griffin Sunday, August 14 at 9 pm/8c on Lifetime!
