I’ve watched Drop Dead Diva from the first show after seeing the ads Drop Dead Diva Series Finale Photosof a saucy plus sized woman with a grin that made me smile.  Jane being Jane was one of the things that I loved about Drop Dead Diva.  She wasn’t a sad sack plus sized woman but one who believed in love, she dated and was just (for a slapstick comedy) a normal woman who happens to be big.  Of course the fact that a confidant skinny model was REALLY on the inside helped but the creator/writers never had a moment where she announced she was going to starve herself or workout like a demon to get her ‘true’ body back.  Instead she accepted her body and enjoyment of food.  So not like a normal series where she would have gone on a diet and been recast with a skinny woman with blonde hair (oh wait her alter ego the ‘real Jane’ DID come back with a model body and blonde good looks).   I do think that they missed many opportunities to hand what it’s really like to be plus sized especially plus sized in Los Angeles (pretty brutal) or how being reborn in a body that is polar opposite would be disconcerting in the least but it’s a broad comedy and they didn’t really like to handle serious stuff.

Drop Dead Diva Series Finale PhotosAm I the only one who was ALWAYS on Team Owen who liked Jane just as she was with her dark hair and full figure.  I always thought that Grayson liked her DESPITE her new body.  That he still loved the original skinny blonde Jane but since she in a bigger body he’d overlook it.  The love triangle didn’t bother me but it brought out a side of Jane that I didn’t love all that much.  Especially during the wedding .. so not cool with the wedding and how they behaved (it was damned mean).

I still enjoyed the joy and many a sunday night it brought a smile to my face when I was feeling down.   Especially when I wasn’t feeling too pretty being a big woman win LA and not the ‘ideal’ that men are looking for (in my mind) but I need to stop assuming that I’m not dateable.  I usually like to pre-reject so that I don’t get my hopes but that just means I never try.  So I’ll be missing my girl Jane and plan to take a little Jane attitude in my dating life!  Am going to embrace me .. when I start to say that I’m not pretty or too old for love or just too goofy am going to say NO I look damned good.  I’m going to like myself just as I am right now instead of saying that when I lose weight or grow my hair long THAN I’ll be pretty and dateable.  Nope I’m going to ‘self love’ and like myself from head to toes.   Am going to be liking my curves, not assuming that nobody is interested and really seeing myself as a desirable attractive woman.

What made you a fan of Drop Dead Diva?
