Desperate Housewives a Halloween Episode

In the forthcoming Halloween episode of DH, we’ll see that Susan’s forced to reveal her big secret – that she has a naughty internet job – to Mike, who’s going to be very shocked.

However, Susan dressing up as Baby Jane may add a sinister edge to her confession…

Also, Lynette chooses to dress up as a 1920s flapper, but despite her joining in the Halloween mood, she’s really worried about Tom’s memory lapses.

Bree gets decked out as a cheerleader, and in this episode, she’ll learn a secret about Keith.

Paul’s grasping at romantic straws and hoping his taking Beth out will reignite the missing spark in their marriage, and Juanita gets suspicious about Gaby’s sudden interest in Grace…

Also, Rene isn’t too pleased when Lee turns up wearing the exact same Marilyn Munroe outfit.

Excited and Scared airs on Halloween night, October 31st, and here’s the sneak peek. Enjoy!

The episode will air on Thursday October 28th on The CW.

Here’s the clip!

Desperate Housewives “Let Me Entertain You” - Blow By Blow Breakdown

Desperate Housewives took a break from the heavy laden “baby swap” story line by focusing on establishing Vanessa Williams’s Renee Perry and dropping a grenade on the Paul Young mystery. That guy needs to be tranquilized and locked in an asylum somewhere.

Wisteria Lane Divas Smackdown 2010: Second Match – Gaby vs. Renee

I died when Renee punched the hell out of Gaby in the nightclub. I couldn’t wait to see how the two ladies got there and when I found out, I was feeling kind of… blah. Yeah, we finally got to meet Renee’s husband Doug, but other than that introduction, the only funny/interesting thing about the whole incident was the actual fight itself. Although, we did learn how far Renee will go to get whatever she wants by sleeping with her husband’s lawyer. Low blow there, in my opinion. Plus, I wonder if this is the last we have seen of Doug Perry. I am glad that the ladies did bury the hatchet, and managed to let bygones be bygones. Maybe Bravo’s Real Housewives should take a lesson from the ladies of Wisteria Lane.

Paul Makes His Move And Corners Susan’s Next Move Back To Wisteria Lane

Now, this was where the action was and I apologize for every piece of whining I have done about Susan’s story line this year. We could’ve guessed the outcome when Paul received Mike’s rejection on buying Susan’s house via Lee. The red herring of Susan being fired kind of gave away the surprise ending, especially when Maxine rehired her for a job that paid top dollar. Even with all those heavy clues being dropped, the reveal was still satisfying and I jumped with Susan when Paul appeared on her laptop screen. Now, Paul has Susan right where he wants her, but what in God’s name could he want with Susan’s house? Did he leave something there? Or is he really just really going after Susan’s happiness?

B.A.G. Is A Sex Machine!

Seeing Bree walking after Keith got a hold of her was hilarious. Obviously, neither Orson nor Rex were doing their jobs in the bedroom. Karl, maybe, but I doubt it was all in one day. Are we going to see a more relaxed and refreshed Bree from now on?

Mrs. Scavo vs. Mrs. Scavo

I’m not going to lie. This storyline had me riding the fence all night until the end. While I don’t see a problem with a woman wanting to take care of her family, there is respect to be had. The Scavo men, especially Tom and the twins, were being complete jackasses. Point blank. With that being said, Lynette crossed the line by letting slip about Mrs. Scavo’s marriage. To me, that’s the only thing that I saw Lynette do wrong. Anything else is entirely not her fault in my opinion. Tom could be trying to save money by hiring his mother, but he has to learn to respect her as well. When his parents come around he acts like a big kid, which is why I got where Lynette was coming from tonight. I wouldn’t want my sons treating my mother like that either. It’s that simple.

Now with Mrs. Scavo having Alzheimer’s Disease, I wonder how this will affect the dynamic in the household? I wonder if it is just kicking in or if it’s been something she’s been hiding from Tom? Time will tell…

What were your thoughts on tonight’s episode?

Desperate Housewives Review - “Let Me Entertain You”

It seems this season has been dragging along with not much to speak of in terms of an interesting storyline.

The good news, though, is that Susan actually had some acting to do this week instead of just flaunting her jugs for VaVaVaBroom. I was almost touched when Lynette covered for Susan’s money issues, claiming it was lent to her to cover some of their birthing bills that insurance did not cover. Yeah, believable. I would definitely ask my closest friends for $9,000 to cover the birth of the fifth child that I can’t afford.

In other (not entirely interesting) news, we are pleased to see that Renee will be sticking around this season after kicking her desperate ex-hubby back to Manhattan. With her new alliance with Gaby, these two will surely get into some diva drama. After that bar brawl, we can’t wait to see it.

Interesting, though, that after Gaby’s obsession with doting on her biological daughter, we saw no mention of her this week – or the child swap for that matter. Gaby went from concerned bio-mom, to a kid-free champagne drinking drama queen with her nose “out of joint” over Renee’s antics this episode. I guess Gaby won’t be getting the Mom of the Year award from either of her kiddos this year.

Speaking of mom of the year... when might things let up for Lynette? This lady just can’t get a break.

As if a worthless husband and five ungrateful kids weren’t enough, she now has her mother-in-law living with them. The Schaivos time warped back to the 1950’s, where cookies are made fresh daily, and drinks are poured anytime you hold your glass up. On top of that, kooky Grandma is showing signs of Alzheimer’s. It looks like this house helper may just become another of Tom and Lynette’s dependents.

Elsewhere, Paul Young is scheming away to take down the neighborhood. Bbut am I the only one not interested? Honestly, I could care less about this guy. The whole murdered on Wisteria Lane thing is a tad overdone. Let’s remember, the show is called Desperate Housewives, not Desperate Ex-con Jailbird. No one watches the show because of this villain’s plans to take down the Lane, do they?

So back to the only semi-interesting thing that happened: Bree getting sexed up. Pretty clever that she came up with a way to tire out her man slave in a different manner, via a long list of chores. Turns out Keith feels a bit dumb compared to his classy lady, so sex is the only way he thought he could keep her interested. Awww, almost want to cry for you, Brian Austin Green. But after your heart to heart about how you like each other just the way you are, we’re confident you’ll be just fine, Breith.

Desperate Housewives Season 7 Ep5 Preview clip - “Let Me Entertain You”

Susan’s days as a sexy internet sensation may be coming to an end after she angers an important client and incurs the wrath of her boss, Maxine; Renee and Gabrielle are headed for a smackdown after each of them reveals an intimate secret about the other to the wrong people; Bree finds herself exhausted by younger lover Keith’s sexual stamina; Lynette is angry with Tom after he asks his mother to become the baby’s nanny without talking it over with her first; and housewife Emma Graham (singer-songwriter Dana Glover) puts on a cabaret show — with the aid of saxophonist Dave Koz — with surprising results, on “Desperate Housewives,”

Starz to debut Torchwood - US Version

When Torchwood makes its Starz debut this coming summer, there would be a couple of new characters on board? Well, now I can tell you not only who they are but also who’s likely to play them (hint: you know and like all three).

• Rex Matheson is a sharp-as-nails, funny-as-hell, tough-as-rawhide CIA agent who cares less about making a good impression than he does making a lasting one. Sounds juicy, right? So no wonder my sources tell me that both Dollhouse alum Enver Gjokaj and One Tree Hill grad Chad Michael Murray are eyeing the role.

• Esther Katusi is a CIA Watch Analyst — in other words, a grunt — who, against all odds, has both an unshakable faith in human nature and a monster crush on Rex. Greek goddess Amber Stevens is said to be the frontrunner for this part.
So what do you think about the names being bandied? You got someone(s) better in mind? Lemme hear it below.
