During our Season 3 Premiere Twitter Party last night with “Drop Dead Diva” cast mates Jackson Hurst and Ben Feldman, Ben told us that Stacy’s hilarious one-liners were earning actress April Bowlby huge laughs. No surprise there, our girl(s) April and Stacy are hilarious!
Since Season 1, we’ve watched Stacy grow and adapt to some big changes you know, like, finding out her best friend had come back to life as someone else. But beyond dealing with Jane’s new life, she’s made major movement in her own. As we saw in last night’s episode, this season will be full of professional and personal developments for our bubbliest blonde BFF.
In an interview with “Entertainment Weekly,” April dished about what’s in store for Stacy and the rest of the Divas, including tumbling, edgy storylines, guest star secrets and more. The star even revealed that she and Fred get it on in a future (hmm, like maybe… next week?!) Season 3 episode. Read the interview here and tune in this Sunday at 9/8c for the next, all-new “Drop Dead Diva” Season 3 episode!
We're just days away from the "Drop Dead Diva" marathon on Lifetime this Friday, April 8 starting at 8 pm/9c and now we've got some super exciting show news for you! Entertainment Weekly's resident Diva Mandi Bierly revealed today that the oh-so-hilarious Wanda Sykes will be guest starring as a judge on Episode 6 of the upcoming Season 3!
The "New Adventures of Old Christine" star is set to appear as Judge Yvonne Wright. Sykes as Judge Wright will preside over a case inspired by Mississippi high school student Constance McMillen — a senior who was restricted from attending her prom because she wanted to go with her girlfriend.
"Drop Dead Diva" creator Josh Berman spilled to EW that he had his eye on casting Sykes after seeing her present an award at the 2010 GLAAD Media Awards (where "Diva" was up for an Outstanding Individual Episode award for Season 2's "Queen of Mean"). In the interview, Josh describes Sykes’ character as "acerbic, very funny and clever, and doesn’t take any crap from anyone, as we would expect Wanda to be." The real-life Constance McMillen will even cameo in the episode as the judge’s bailiff.
