When we were ever-so-patiently (we're saints, really!) waiting for Season 3 to begin, it was SO exciting to get guest star scoop and tidbits about the upcoming episodes that we almost forgot how much more (approximately 5,000 times or so) exciting it would be to actually see the episodes! Such is most certainly the case with Kathy Griffin, who guest stars on this Sunday's all-new "Drop Dead Diva" as Kim Kaswell's sister. We've compiled the photos, video and word from Kathy herself about being a Diva below. Enjoy and tune in and Tweet with us Sunday night at 9/8c on Lifetime!
"Drop Dead Diva" Blooper Reel
In this gag reel from Episode 8, Kathy Griffin cracks up Margaret Cho... and us! (Psst: it's Perez Hilton-approved. Just sayin'!):
The Star Gets Real With Star Mag!
In an interview with Star Magazine, Kathy shared some insight on how she snagged and prepared for the role as "the villian"'s big sis ("I’m the villain that even the villain is afraid of. Score!"), dished on working with friend and fellow comedian Margaret Cho and gave a pretty kick a** explanation for why she likes "Drop Dead Diva." Read her interview with Star Magazine here!

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!
