The drama is back in Bravo’s first scripted series,
Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce. The show returns for its second
season Tuesday, December 1 and the leading ladies aren’t holding back.
With four female leads (Lisa Edelstein, Beau
Garrett, Necar Zadegan and Alanna Ubach), the writer of the series being
a woman (Marti Noxon), and women directors throughout the episodes, it’s
clear the show heavily emphasizes the life of real women in today’s
“We are a very large part of the population, woman
with careers. I feel lucky that I get to be a part of it and I’ve always
been so interested in my role,” says Zadegan who plays Delia, a
self-made divorce attorney.
Between marriage, work, and children, the
character’s lives of the hit series revolve heavily around relationships
and love. As do the lives of most people.
“I think love is the biggest mystery of life. Love
is one of those things you never get too old for…. Your heart never
grows old and our show is about love. I think moreover relationships are
hard. We explore all that stuff,” says Zadegan.
Whether you are 18 or 45, dating is a very real part
of life and every character of the show explores the emotional roller
coaster that comes with those relationships. In particular, the women of
the show have more than just themselves to consider when it comes to
their love lives. Between children, careers, and close friends, Zadegan
explains how it is important for them all to obtain healthy
relationships – not only with your significant other, but your friends
“This is your life, your life isn’t just work…. It’s
about love in so many ways. Not just who you are dating. You have to
make time for people,” Zadegan says.
“This show is [about] relationships and the viewers
can really have an opinion about it. Everybody thinks they know about
relationships,” she added.
Not only do the characters enjoy spending time with
each other as best friends on camera, but they enjoy each other’s
company behind the scenes as well.
“I love the girls I work with. They have become some
of my favorite actresses and we really have a good time working with one
another. We all love the show so much and work hard to tell the story,”
she says on her co-stars. “It’s wonderful to work with like-minded
At the end of last season, the audience watches the
previously commitment-phobic Delia became more open to the traditional
idea of marriage as she becomes engaged to a previous client.
Growing up with her parents not together and looking
after her father, Delia has grown to be an independent woman who has
never had to rely on anyone other than herself and she takes pride in
“Nobody helped her to get where she is. In the face
of adversity, she made a beautiful life for herself. She wrestles with
the question of marriage. It creates a lot inner turmoil for her because
she has come this far on her own,” says Zadegan.
With the season two premiere finally here, fans can
expect to the show to pick up right where it left off. Zadegan explains
that last season, the girls were learning to put their past behind them
and making the choice to start fresh. Now they are quickly learning that
if you don’t deal with your past, it will still find you.
“You can almost call this season the great
cover-up,” Zadegan jokes. “They’re trying to cover up things they don’t
want to deal with.”
From the characters’ personalities to the overall
plot, Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce is a show people of all ages
and different generations can relate to and Necar Zadegan believes that
is a large reason why so many people enjoy watching.
“Every time you start a new project you believe in
it very strongly. I love the show that we were doing.”
