Unlike some celebrity "Lgbt allies," Margaret Cho has been proudly supportive and queer since the minute she stepped foot onstage. When she stormed the comedy circuit in 1993 and landed her own sitcom called All-American Girl, it was easy to root for her complete honesty and bad-ass best friend charm. She was once described as "the Comedy Madonna," and I think she'll rightfully carry that title forever.
Margaret is particularly special to me because her amazingly candid and funny memoir I'm the One That I Want came out when I was a freshman in high school. I'd watched her HBO standup special and All-American Girl when I was a little kid, so it was jarring to realize that the confident, pleather-pantsuited comic from my youth had dealt with -- in the years following her sitcom's cancellation -- drug addiction, long-term eating disorders, and the absolute worst Hollywood people I can imagine. »
Drop Dead Diva returns for a fourth season this Sunday, June 3rd, and I have a great giveaway to help celebrate. The surprise (to me… because it sounds crazy on paper) Lifetime hit held strong through three seasons, and it doesn’t look like it will be slowing down. Season four opens with Kim Kardashian in a guest role as a relationship guru Stacy enlists to help make sense of her life.
More importantly, there are a couple of new regulars joining the cast. Certainly not a show that is scared to mix things up, it looks like we’re in for a wild ride through the first few episodes.
Check out more info and a teaser below, then enter to win the Unleash Your Inner Diva Prize Pack.
