So, we’ve got a new hunk walking around Wisteria Lane in the form of Brian Austin Green’s  Keith Watson.  Well, it appears that Keith will be sticking around the Lane for a while now that the show has cast both of his parents.

First it was announced that John Schneider has been cast in the role of Keith’s father.  Fans will remember John from 90210 where he played Liam’s (Matt Lanter) step-father, Smallville where he played Clark’s (Tom Welling) adoptive father, and most notably from Dukes of Hazzard where he played Bo Duke.

Now it has also been announced that Nancy Travis has been cast in the role of Keith’s mother.  Nancy Travis may be best known for her roles in “So, I Married an Axe Murderer” and “Three Men and a Baby”.

What are your thoughts?  Are you enjoying Brian Austin Green on Desperate Housewives?  Are you looking forward to John Schneider and Nancy Travis joining the cast?  Look for both actors to appear in the 7th episode of the new season.

Well, there is quite a bit of news happening on Wysteria Lane.  As the show prepares for it’s sixth season, lots of changes are in store.  Here’s just a bit of the news I gathered (thanks to TV Fanatic!!!):

Shawn Pyfrom (Andrew) has been bumped to recurring status so that the actor can work on other projects.  Series creator, Marc Cherry, said that he does not want to lose Andrew all together because he really likes the character.

Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos) has joined the cast as a new series regular.  Her character’s name is Angie Bolen.  Angie moves to Wysteria Lane with her husband – new series regular, Jeff Nordling (24) – and her son – new series regular, Beau Mirchoff.  The family definitely has a secret, which will play out throughout the season.

Andrea Bowen (Julie) returns to DH this season as a series regular.  It is rumored that Julie will be dating Beau Mirchoff’s character.

Orson Bean has joined the cast in the role of Roy.  Roy will be Karen McClusky’s (Kathryn Joosten) boyfriend.  And yes, they will have a sex scene.

My favorite news, of course, is that Jesse Metcalfe is returning to the show in the role of John.  Only this time John wont be going after Gabby (Eva Longoria-Parker).  Instead, he’ll be dating Ana (Maiara Walsh), the niece of Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) that moved in with Gabby and Carlos in the season 5 finale.

We’ll learn who Mike (James Denton) married in the season 5 finale…either Susan (Teri Hatcher) or Katherine (Dana Delaney).

Bree (Marcia Cross) will still be flirting with Karl (Richard Burgi), but her story with Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) is far from over.

Finally, we found out in the season finale that Lynette (Felicity Huffman) was preggers again.  Turns out that her’s and Tom’s (Doug Savant) story may lead her down the road of considering an abortion.

I’m really excited to see where DH is going to go this year.  Sounds like an exciting season already.  DH’s season premiere is on Sunday, September 27th.

Hottie o' the Week Logo

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days, just got really really busy…AND The Sims 3 came out, which I’m going right back to playing the second I’m done with this post, lol.  Anywho, I’m thinking the Hottie o’ the Day will now become the Hottie o’ the Week only b/c it’s getting increasingly harder to find hotties.  However, before I make any drastic changes, I had to post a new hottie…Ryan Carnes.  Many of you may not know who Ryan is, but he’s worked in daytime soap, he’s done a few gay movies (including Eating Out), and he played on Desperate Housewives as one of John’s (Jessie Metcalfe) friends.  Hope you enjoy, b/c this guy is seriously hot.

So, hopefully, by now you’ve seen the Desperate Housewives Season Finale.  And what a great 2 hour episode it was.  Let’s get right to the synopsis:

First up, Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) found out that Bree (Marcia Cross) had been hiding the valuables that he thought were stolen from their house.  When he confronted Bree, Bree admitted to wanting a divorce.  However, Orson got the upperhand telling Bree that if she went along with the divorce, that he would have her arrested for insurance fraud.  Turns out, that when their house was supposedly robbed, Orson placed an insurance claim.  Now that he knows that Bree set the whole thing up, she can be arrested for fraud.  Bree doesn’t know what to do, so she turns to her lawyer, Karl (Richard Burgi).  Karl sends a thug (played by Port Charles star Jay Pickett) to threaten Orson.  However, Orson once again turns the tables and forces Bree to stay in their loveless marriage.  Bree again turns to Karl and this time in more ways than one.  She and Karl start an affair…YAY!

Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chaviro) and Gabby (Eva Longoria-Parker) receive a call from his dying aunt for a family picnic.  At the picnic, Carlos’ aunt reveals that she’s dying and needs someone to care for her granddaughter.  Despite Gabby’s objections, Carlos feels obligated to take the girl in.  When the girl arrives, it turns out she’s a teenager…an older teenager…with a penchant for hooking up with rich older men in order to get whatever she wants.

Lynette (Felicity Huffman) begins to fear that her cancer may be coming back and makes an appointment with the doctor.  Meanwhile, her husband, Tom (Doug Savant), enrolls in college to learn Mandarin and become more competitive in the job market.  Lynette goes to the doctor and learns that the cancer hasn’t come back….she’s actually pregnant with twins…for the second time!  What will she and Tom do?

Now onto the big story….the Dave (Neal McDonough) story.  Dave puts his diabolical plan into motion.  The plan is to kill Susan (Teri Hatcher) and Mike’s (James Denton) little son, MJ (Mason Vale Cotton).  Dave wants to take Susan and MJ on a fishing trip.  However, Susan is reluctant to go b/c of Jackson (Gale Harold) being held for deportation.  So, Susan cancels the trip.  This sends Dave home where he goes crazy and has visions of his dead doctor (whom he killed in the fire at the nightclub), his dead wife and daughter, and his most recently killed wife, Edie (Nicolette Sheridan).  In his vision, Edie urges Dave to kill MJ right away and forget all about the fishing trip.  So, Dave decides to take her advice and do just that.  Meanwhile, Susan head’s over to Mike and Katherine’s (Dana Delaney) house to as Mike if he is the one who called Immigration on Jackson.  However, Mike is in the shower.  So, Susan tells Katherine about this.  Katherine tells Susan that she NEVER told Mike about the fake marriage proposal between Susan and Jackson.  Susan can’t figure out who turned Jackson in.  But before she has time to really think about it, she learns that Mike and Katherine are now engaged and planning to get married right away in Las Vegas.  Obviously upset, Susan leaves Mike and Katherine’s and decides to go on the fishing trip with Dave.  Good thing she changed her mind when she did, b/c Dave was just about to kill MJ when Susan told him about the change of plans.

Meanwhile, Mrs. McClusky’s sister (Lily Tomlin) receives a call telling her that Dave’s doctor was killed.  So, she comes back to Wysteria Lane to share the news with Mrs. McClusky (Kathryn Joosten).  The two decide to break into Dave’s house where they find all of his precription pills.  The detectives find the two nosey ladies snooping around Dave’s house and bring them in for questioning.  Together, the detectives and the sisters put together all of the info they’ve gathered on Dave and realize that this guy had planned on killing Mike, Susan, and/or MJ all along.

Dave and Susan leave for their fishing trip, but just as they are leaving, Dave gives Mike a tape he recorded (with his confession to MJ’s murder) and tells Mike not to listen to it until after his and Katherine’s honeymoon.  Mike agrees and says his goodbyes.  However, Mike catches Dave making a sinister face and begins to worry about Susan and MJ.  Katherine gets jealous that Mike is always thinking about Susan.  However, Mike tells her that he loves her and not Susan.  The two head to the airport, and while waiting to board the plane, Katherine heads off to get her and Mike some coffee.  When she reaches for her wallet, she mistakenly turns on the video camera in her purse.  She walks away.  Mike hears the video and happens to pull it out of her purse.  Turns out to be the video confessional Dave made about killing MJ.  Mike tears out of the airport without getting to tell Katherine what was going on.  Katherine returns and thinks that Mike just didn’t want to marry her.  Mike calls Susan on her cell phone and tells her not to react to what he’s about to tell her so that Dave wont know what their talking about.  Mike tells Susan that Dave is the husband of the mother and daughter they killed in the car accident a few years back.  He also tells her that she and MJ are in a lot of trouble and need to get away from Dave.

Susan does a fairly good job at making it look like she knows nothing, and tries to get Dave to pull over at a gas station or restaurant to use the bathroom or get food.  He refuses.  So, she gives MJ a juicebox and shortly thereafter, MJ starts whining that he needs to go to the bathroom.  Dave will not pull over at a rest stop, so he pulls over by a cemetary to allow MJ to go to the bathroom in the woods.  Susan takes MJ into the woods to go to the bathroom, comes back, and hits Dave over the head with a brick, knocking him out.  She tries to take off with MJ, but realizes that the keys to the car are in Dave’s jacket.  She goes to get the keys, and Dave grabs her.  She runs and brings MJ with her, but trips and hurts her ankle.  She tells MJ to hide and not let Dave find him.  Dave successfully finds MJ and brings the two back to the car to continue on into the deep woods for the fishing trip.  However, Mike calls again.  This time Dave talks to Mike and comes up with a plan to have Mike kill MJ the way Susan and Mike killed his wife and daughter in the car accident.  He has Mike meet him at the intersection where the accident occured.  Dave ties Susan up to a street sign on the side of the road, and gets ready to pull out in front of Mike’s car the second Mike shows up.  Just as all of this is about to occur, Dave only sees his daughter when he looks at MJ and so he lets MJ out of the car, gets into the accident with Mike, and loses his mind after almost dying.  Mike, Susan, and MJ reunite and Mike and Susan share a VERY passionate kiss.

Fast forward 2 months…the whole gang from Wysteria Lane is attending a wedding.  Bree is with Orson, but making flirty faces with Karl, Gabby and Carlos are with their girls and niece, Tom is with Lynette who is running to the bathroom with morning sickness, and Mike is marrying someone.  But who?  Guess we’ll find out next season!

The episode was really good and the last 30 minutes were definite edge of your seat excitement.  I loved it!  What did you all think?

Just a quick note to remind you of all the season finale’s occuring this week!!

So, I mentioned Josh Henderson the other day when I did my blog about the hunks of Desperate Housewives.  Since then, I figured this guy deserved his own post.  Josh has been making the rounds in movies and TV.  I first took notice of him when he played Brett in the Channing Tatum flick “Step Up”.  Since then, Josh joined Desperate Housewives for 1 season playing Edie Britt’s (Nicolette Sheridan) nephew, Austin.  This season, Josh appeared on 3 episodes of the new 90210 as Sean.  His story on 90210 is still dangling, so I wouldn’t rule out a return from him.  I checked out his imdb profile, but it appears he isn’t working on any new projects at the moment.  Well, hope you enjoy!
