It’s well known that former “American Idol” judge, Paula Abdul, is appearing in the Season 2 finale of “Drop Dead Diva.” Now we’re told that she will appear in the premiere of the yet to be announced Season 3.
Creator Josh Berman tells Zap2it exclusively that Abdul has already shot a provocative scene that will potentially open next season’s premiere episode.
“When [Abdul] was shooting the finale, which she’s in,” Berman tells us. “She pulled me aside and said, ‘I am having so much fun, I want to do another scene.'”
Berman says that he explained to Abdul that since they were shooting the season finale, they didn’t have any more scenes ready to shoot.
“She said, “I don’t care. If you would like to write something, I will act in it,'” explains Berman. “And I said, ‘You know what, that’s the most amazing offer I’ve ever gotten from an actress.'”
So, Berman pulled aside series star, Brooke Elliott (who plays Jane), and Ben Feldman, who plays Jane’s guardian angel, and asked them if they’d be willing to shoot a newly written scene with Abdul.
“They were both like, ‘We’re there,'” Berman says. “So, we’ve actually shot a scene with Paula Abdul, Brooke Elliott and Ben Feldman in bed together and opening for Season 3. It’s a lot of fun and I don’t even know if the network knows yet.”
Well, the network knows now! Fingers crossed for a Season 3 renewal. That scene sounds too good not to make it on-air!
