For what it's worth, just found the following link (through Expectingrain.com):

http://www.avclub.com/toronto/articles/5-famous-kids-who-arent-totally-insufferable,62562/

Diva comes in 2nd and this is what's been written about her:

Quote:
Of all the Zappa spawn, Diva kind of got the luckiest break. She didn’t get stuck with a name like Dweezil or Moon Unit, which must be nice. While Diva has parlayed her last name into some light acting work in film’s like National Lampoon’s Pledge This!, her real passion is knitting. According to an article in Knit 1 Magazine, Roseanne’s Laurie Metcalf taught Diva how to knit. She’s since gone on to launch a website, where she sells knit hats. And according to her Wikipedia, she even knit a cape for Diablo Cody. She’s actually super famous. At knitting.

knitting can be real cool if you want it to be, otherwise its more for a granny.

Knitting is fun, like any handicraft providing you don't maim yourself doing it (I'm looking at you, gouge). Recently I knitted myself a lot of things with loop stitch.

She is kind of insufferable, although of the four kids, she's the only one with any acting talent.

I though Moon did a good job on Private Practice.

I thought Dweezil did a good job as Ajax in Duckman. So did Jason Alexander and Everett Peck.
