For Season 15, "Dancing With the Stars" is bringing back fan favorites to compete for the mirror ball trophy again and our very own Margaret Cho is vying for a spot! And really, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want to see her shake her thang in another crazy costume! (Hello, rainbow dress!)
Since fans get to cast the season, Margaret needs your votes to secure a spot. Click here to vote for Margaret under the Comedian category. Vote all day, every day, okay? Thanks.
What kind of dance would you like to see Margaret do if she returns to "Dancing With the Stars"? Mambo? Tango? Waltz?
It was Divas Gone Wild this weekend when the cast and crew of "Drop Dead Diva" got together to prepare for Season 3's departure and we've got exclusive photos from the cast party to share with you all!
Like the Season 3 reunion we'd write about in our journals... or um, on this blog, this season's most familiar faces (from everyone's least favorite fiancée Vanessa, Jaime Ray Newman to everyone's favorite fiancé, Episode 12's Quinton Aaron!) joined all-time favorites like Margaret Cho and Brooke Elliott and the rest of the cast and crew.
Click through the photo above or the strip below for the complete collection of pictures from the cast party.
The "Drop Dead Diva" Season 3 Finale airs Sunday, September 25 at 9pm/8c on Lifetime! What Divas in your life are you watching with?
When they're not being sassy assistants, justice-seeking heartthrobs or dead models, actors Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst and Brooke D'Orsay are being, well, themselves! Let's cozy up a seat next to the "Drop Dead Diva" stars to see what they're up to off-camera, shall we?
As much as we all want Grayson and Jane to get together, there's something exciting about watching their relationship (and the chemistry between them!) grow episode-to-episode. In this People TV video, Jackson Hurst opens up about his connection with Brooke Elliot and reveals all — like, whether he's a boxers, briefs or g-string kinda guy.
The fans get to ask the questions on CNN iReport Interview, where Margaret Cho sits down to "talk trash," offer up advice and explain why she loves doing "Diva." Check out her interview below:
Viewers have been dying to see Brooke D'Orsay back on "Drop Dead Diva," so last week's episode, featuring flashbacks of the model, was just the dose of Deb we needed. The gym bunnies at Self.com visited Brooke to get the actress's tips and tricks of her at-home fitness routine. Read Brooke's interview, plus get the tour of her converted gym/garage on Self.com!

Welcome back to After the Episode With Josh! This time around, executive producer and show creator Josh Berman gives us the skinny on Jane and Grayson in bed together, dirt about the return of Vanessa and Ben Feldman's phone number. Just kidding about that last one, but this show scoop should make up for having to live another day without Fred's digits.
Johnny asks: “Does Kate Levering have formal dance training? In the dream sequences, she dances very well.”
Kate has an extensive background on Broadway, so yes formal training and she’s logged quite a few hours on stage! If you like her dancing, you should check out her dance sequence with Thunder From Down Under, only available as an extra on the Season 2 DVD.
@JaneValentine Tweets (and FB fan Lydia asks): “Will Jaime’s character Vanessa come back after the un-wedding?!”
Vanessa is played by my good friend Jaime Ray Newman and we would be so lucky to have her back on the show. It’s always fun to bring back characters in a new role.
The fans have had a very adverse reaction to Vanessa. Did you expect or plan for her to be this hated character?
Vanessa is a lovely character, but she's not Jane. Anyone who competes with Jane for Grayson will be disliked. She's also a bit cold (on purpose) and I think viewers are reacting to that.
Deborah thinks Grayson getting stood up at the altar is sad, but wants to know whether you think if Vanessa had told him face-to-face, she would have really gone through with her decision to back out? She also asks, “Why did Vanessa wait that long to let Grayson know how she felt?”
I think there is really something behind following your gut... Vanessa and Grayson had a whirlwind romance that was victim to so many factors. I think that Vanessa wasn’t able to get a good perspective on it until she was there, dress and all, on her way to the altar. That said, I believe that if she had known earlier, she absolutely would have shared it with Grayson. When you are in love with someone, you hope and pray they feel the same way. Deep down, she knew that Grayson didn't.
Christian wants all the dirt: “Was [the final scene of Jane and Grayson in bed at the hotel] them ‘sleeping’ together like you hinted at earlier?” And @FloorReeyes Tweets: “What happened with Grayson & Jane after that night?”
There is so much to explore in the world of Jane/Deb and Grayson. I definitely wanted to tease our audience by saying that they slept together because I wanted to get you thinking about how many different avenues their love for one another could take. So yes, that was the scene I was hinting at. It seems so cliché to say this but... Tune in on Sunday night at 9 to see what happens next! I’d imagine after Grayson’s night of sadness and drinking, he probably woke up craving a strong cup of coffee... Just a hunch. And remember, Jane is still dating someone.
“Just out of curiosity does the feedback you receive from fans influence future episodes or is the storyline complete and final?” Jacqueline wants to know.
I love fan feedback. I'm not sure if it influences the storylines, but i read everything on-line especially the comments on our Facebook page.
Arlien wonders if Jane and Kim will forever be frenemies… or if there’s something more there: “Jane and Kim really do appreciate each others' skills. Are they ever going to develop their friendship?”
Jane and Kim’s scenes together are so fun because they are loaded with both hostility and a professional respect for one another. I always wonder what Kim and Old Jane's relationship must have been like. Kim probably still can't figure out why this woman suddenly grew a backbone. In the future, perhaps they could be friends. Do you think Deb and Kim could have been friends?
@TVFanatic592 Tweets for Teri asking: “Will Teri have another love interest this season?”
Teri really cracks me up. Margaret Cho is such a genius! She has brought a really interesting facet to the character which is to say that any man that walks into Harrison and Parker has the potential of winding up in the cross hairs of Teri’s eye! And yes, there will be more men in Teri's life!
While so many fans want to see Grayson and Jane get together, some others have suggested that them finally uniting would be the end of the show how do you see it?
That’s the 10 million dollar question and I’m going to bow my head to you, our loyal fans, and say “stay tuned.”
