Marcia Cross Almost Became a Therapist Before Landing 'Desperate Housewives' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 1st 2011 4:15PM
Marcia Cross' life has taken nearly as many twists and turns as her 'Desperate Housewives' character Bree Van De Kamp's. She told Robin Roberts on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC) that before she was cast in 'Desperate Housewives,' she was on the brink of retiring from acting to become a therapist. Eight seasons later, she's still on Wisteria Lane for the show's final season.

Her character Bree might be in need of a good shrink, as she's gone back to boozing and is in full melt-down mode. "She's in such a tailspin at the moment, I don't even know how they're gonna pull her out. Maybe they should just leave her in the gutter, find her ten years later, and pull her out and throw an apron on her," Cross joked.

Robert Chavira and Wendy Williams Joke About 'Desperate Housewives' and 'DWTS' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 18th 2011 6:00PM
Wendy Williams (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) has been a fan of 'Desperate Housewives' since the beginning, and as the show nears its finale, she invited Ricardo Chavira, who plays Carlos Solis, onto 'The Wendy Williams Show.' Chavira told Wendy that he's also a fan of hers, so much so that he watched her on 'Dancing With The Stars,' even though he isn't really into reality competitions. Fortunately, he was able to bail out quickly, since Wendy only lasted two weeks.
As it usually does, the conversation quickly turned to hair. Wendy told Chavira, "I love your hair on the show, but I love this here, too. What's all it doing?" Chavira talked about spending the summer in Texas and watching his daughter run around with her wild hair, but then got to the obvious inspiration. "It's kind of become this homage to one of my favorite, all-time TV show stars, Juan Epstein from 'Welcome Back, Kotter.'"

'2011 ALMA Awards''Desperate Housewives' took home the award for Favorite TV Series at 'The 2011 ALMA Awards' (Fri., 8PM ET on NBC). The American Latino Media Arts Awards honors the Latino community, so it was no surprise that Eva Longoria spoke on behalf of the show after creator Marc Cherry.

But the women did have a little bit of fun with it when Felicity Huffman chastised Longoria for not speaking in Spanish. She then proceeded to speak in Spanish, translating what Longoria was saying in English.

That said, while Felicity hung in there very well, she did start to struggle the further they went along. In the end, though, it was a very cute bit, shaking expectations and having a little bit of fun.

When Kathie Lee Gifford told Sheridan about the report, Sheridan replied, "Huh. Well, that's news to me." It's not necessarily that Sheridan would be against it, she just sees a wee bit of a practical problem to solve. "I had an amazing time playing that character," she said. "I loved her dearly, but they killed her. She's dead."

'Desperate Housewives' to End After Season 8

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 5th 2011 4:30PM
Desperate HousewivesYou'll have to look elsewhere for your soapy domestic drama come May 2012, because that's when 'Desperate Housewives' will conclude its eighth and final season. Although ABC hasn't yet sent official word, the network is expected to announce the big news at Sunday's Television Critics Association panel. UPDATE 8/7/11: ABC has since made it official.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the news was completely unexpected considering all four of the show's big stars -- Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Eva Longoria -- had signed on for two more years, and creator Marc Cherry had publicly stated he wanted the series to run for nine seasons.

Is It All Over for 'Desperate Housewives'?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 12th 2011 8:30AM
'Desperate Housewives'Is the end nigh for 'Desperate Housewives'? It's been reported that the upcoming eighth season may be the last for the residents of Wisteria Lane.

According to TV Guide, ABC execs and the show's producers could decide the fate of the veteran drama by early August. However, there is a chance they could wait and see how Season 8 performs before they decide.

A source close to the show said that, "It's all dependent on the ratings. It will be up against some stiff competition." Gulp.

Although last season 'Housewives' was the 24th most-watched prime-time show among broadcast networks, audience numbers were down by around 50 percent from its Season 1 glory days.

by Gary Susman, posted Apr 29th 2010 2:00PM
With the sixth season of 'Desperate Housewives' winding down, how much longer can the series stay on the air? Depends on the players and how long ABC can get them to stick around.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the network would like another two seasons. Creator Marc Cherry has spoken of a nine-season run. But the core cast - Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, and Eva Longoria Parker - are contracted for only one more season, and so far, says Deadline, there's been little negotiation between the network and the stars about an eighth season.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'We All Deserve to Die' Recap

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 18th 2010 11:11PM
Desperate Housewives(S06E19) "Sometimes ... we let it in." - Mary Alice about "Evil"

After months without mentioning the strangler storyline, 'Desperate Housewives' finally let "Evil" back in and treated us not only with hints and, sadly, a new killing, but also with the identity of the culprit!!!

We first saw the person in the second episode of the season. My immediate instinct was that the strangled was a young man with whom Julie may have had a complicated "thing" with and that I didn't think it was Julie's ex (played by Steven Weber). In comments TV Squad readers left to my review of that episode, most fingers were pointed at Danny, McCluskey, Ana, Angie, Roy, and Katherine. Of course, as more episodes aired, people were added to the list while others were removed. Did you guess right? The answer coming up!
