Desperate House-husbands Moving to Wisteria Lane

Nathan Fillion and Dana Delaney won't be the only new neighbors on Wisteria Lane this fall. The house formerly occupied by the Applewhites on "Desperate Housewives" will finally be getting some new owners: a gay couple.

Show creator Marc Cherry (pictured at right) told that around episode 5, two gay men will be moving into the old Applewhite home, and "one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher." Cherry continued:

I just decided to have them move onto the street and have as many issues as any other couple. And Susan wants to be so politically correct and show how open-minded she is and she puts her foot in her mouth instantly and it goes downhill from there. I'm basing it a little bit on my relationship with my neighbors.

Cherry said he's just started writing the episodes, and he's not expected to cast the characters for another few weeks. Personally, I like the idea of shaking up Wisteria Lane even more and adding some diversity to the neighborhood again since the Applewhites were made out to be, you know, basically criminals. What about you?

This is a really great idea, but I'm not sure it will help the show. I hope they explore real issues and give people a good understanding of how it is to be gay.
