"Desperate Housewives" Spoilers: Gays Coming to Wisteria Lane
AUGUST 2, 2007: It will have taken Edie Britt (Nicolette Sheridan) more than a year to finally sell the old Applewhite house on Wisteria Lane, but come October the spooky property, that in another TV universe belonged to the Munsters family, will boast a rainbow flag.
As AfterElton.com reported earlier this week, "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry and his team of writers are planning to introduce a gay couple on Wisteria Lane around episode #5 of the upcoming season.
One of the men will clash with Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher) who makes her best effort to show how politically correct and open-minded she is. She however ends up having a hateful relationship with Wisteria Lane's first male "Desperate Housewife."
Meanwhile, the dramedy's resident gay hunk Andrew Vandekamp (Shawn Pyfrom) who was last season reduced to throwing occasional one-line zingers after two mischievous years of scheming, conniving and bedhopping, may begetting more action next year.
It all begins with episode #3 in which a fun thing happens and Andrew, who gets involved in Lynette's cancer storyline, resorts to his old evil ways. Then, later in the season, the writers may once again address the character's sexuality. It was certainly about time.
The gay couple have yet to be cast. You can read the full article at AfterElton.com. The 4th season of "Desperate Housewives" premieres Sunday, September 30 at 9/8c on ABC.
