Drop Dead Diva Review: Never Mess With A Beauty Queen

at . Comments

This week's Drop Dead Diva really tugged at the heartstrings of longtime Jane and Owen fans. In "Missed Congeniality," the issue of Stacy and the sperm donor reached its peak.

So did she find a solution? Read on to find out!

Kim & Dad

I have to say after hearing out both sides of this argument, I am still staunchly on Team Jane. As Teri so eloquently put it:

That violates every rule of friendship. No way, no sperm, no how! | permalink

I know in the end Jane came around and was the bigger person and did the selfless thing and for that I commend her. I'm not sure I could've ever found the strength Jane did, especially after Stacy completely went behind her back. It was ballsy enough that Stacy was asking for Jane's ex-fiance's sperm to begin with... then she lied and told Owen that Jane gave her blessing when she originally didn't. 

Do you think Owen made his decision thinking he had Jane's blessing the whole time? I know Jane's speech at the end made it clear she was okay if he said yes, but she also said that she still wanted to be with him and start a family of their own one day. Either way, his decision to to be Stacy's donor made it very clear that he and Jane were O-V-E-R. When he nodded to Jane as she hugged Stacy, my heart broke a little for Jane.

Enter into that equation that Grayson is on his way to making his relationship with guest star Annie Ilonzeh more serious. It was all just crappy timing, but Grayson deserves to be happy too and Jane had said no to him. Such a tangled web! 

It was nice to see Kim mend fences with her father when she took his case. Maybe he wasn't there for her when she was growing up, but hopefully they will be able to make up for that lost time now that he will be moving in. It goes to show how Kim has grown as a character and is moving past her abandonment issues and sadness with Parker.

What did you think of Jane's beauty pageant case? Were you laughing when she wanted to get Anderson Cooper on the phone? I think it really triggered old memories for her and that's why she felt so upset when she originally thought she was lied to. Hit the comments with your thoughts about this week's Drop Dead Diva!

I'm looking for a baby daddy not a sugar daddy.


I would've thought a woman like yourself would've found pageants frivolous if not out right demeaning.
