Desperate Housewives Season Premiere

Attention contains spoiler info:

So moments ago the season finale of “Desperate Housewives” just ended on ABC. I actually have not followed this show for very long, beginning my tenure as a DH fan last spring. Over the summer I got their back-to-back daily episodes on Lifetime, and now I’m hooked in tightly.

Hi, Kyle MacLachlan!!

This season has started with some new mysteries and wrapped up some old ones.

Eva Longoria Parker has a bratty teenage girl.

Felicity Huffman is pregnant AGAIN with twins.

Marcia Cross is performing infidelity rituals with her divorce lawyer.

And of course Teri Hatcher is getting married.

If you’re reading this and think it sounds rather plain…well it is. Overall I thought the majority of the show was not very interesting, and I actually spent some time reading a history book instead of paying attention.

UNTIL the final minute of the show* This is where DH capitalizes on its greatness. Teri Hatcher’s daughter Andrea Bowen, (Character: Julie Mayer) gets choked liked rotweiller with a bad case of rabies. Then, she fell to the ground unconscious. This made me mad. I have said multiple times in conversation that Julie Mayer is one of the best characters on the show, even though she isn’t the lead.
Rock On Andrea Bowen!!

Her issue is related to a new family on the block, which also appears to have plenty more dark secrets. “Desperate Housewives” has had its share of families with dark secrets, but these new people look really sick and twisted. I am definitely watching next week, if for anything to find out more about poor Julie Mayer. Get well soon.

Review Rating: Good Stuff! (The last minute of the show made all the difference.)

QATFYG: Did Teri Hatcher actually hook up with David Spade a few years ago? I heard this on the radio once, and it sounds so implausible it must be true.


  1. It's another classic "whodunnit" moment for DH.

    I can't help but wonder who put the choke hold on Julie. Was it:

    A) Katherine Mayfair (after all, she is still quite pissed at Susan for stealing Mike back);
    B) Nick Bolen (the manipulative husband of new housewife Angie Bolen);
    C) Danny Bolen (the tightly wound and possibly disturbed son of Angie and Nick Bolen);
    D) Angie Bolen (the newest housewife, who also played Joey Tribbiani's sister in "Joey");
    E) Orson Hodge (pissed at Julie's father, Karl, who is having an affair with Bree);
    F) Dave Williams (he couldn't get little M.J., so now he is after Julie???)
    G) Someone else altogether?

  2. I can see what you were saying about the show up until the end; however, I do not necessarily agree with you. The beginning, while not packed with drama so to speak, was very vital. This was important to reorient the viewers with the past situations as well as allow the viewers to be introduced to the new characters. In addition, if the show gave too much drama in the beginning or in the whole episode, then the viewer might be let down later in the season when episodes were not as drama packed. I will have to say the episode was decent, but I might not be watching full time in the future.

  3. RE: Troy
    I think it would be G) someone else altogether. DH has a long history of not showing the criminals till later in the season. In addition, it mostly likely has to be a male. The shoes and clothing of the attacker were in a typically male style.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it
