A 'Desperate Housewives' Reunion Is Coming

A 'Desperate Housewives' Reunion Is Coming

Remember Desperate Housewives? The noughties staple that gave us juicy storylines like the Susan-Edie-Mike love triangle and Gaby's daughter being switched at birth?

Well, good news for fans of the show, because the cast are reuniting for special livestream episode of Stars in the House this Sunday 12th April.

Not familiar with Stars in the House?

The concept was set up in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic by SiriusXM host Seth Rudetskey and his husband James Wesley, creating a daily live-streamed series to raise donations for The Actor's Funds in aid of the COVID-19 crisis.

Casts of other shows - including Barrie, Jessie and Young Sheldon - will also be reuniting for the same charitable cause.

We can't wait to see the famous faces of Desperate Housewives back together. So, who will and won't be there?

According to Deadline, cast members Marcia Cross, Vanessa Williams, Brenda Strong, Dana Delaney, and Eva Longoria will all be present to look back on the drama-filled years of Wisteria Lane.

This is going to be one big dose of nostalgia.

Fans will remember that Desperate Housewives ran for 8 seasons before wrapping in 2012.

The show quickly won a devoted fanbase thanks to its mix of cutting rivalry, hot romance and ridiculous but oh-so-watchable plotlines.

Two key cast members who won't be present at the reunion are Felicity Huffman and Teri Hatcher.

The absence of Huffman comes as no surprise given the college admissions scandal she was involved in last year.

The star pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 (£11,500) to having her daughter's exam answers secretly corrected in 2017.

She was ordered to serve 250 hours of community service and paid a $30,000 fine.

Who knows whether the topic will come up during the reunion? We'll certainly be keeping an ear out.

There were widespread rumours of an ongoing feud between Teri Hatcher and the rest of the cast, and the Desperate Housewives set was plagued by accusations on bullying.

While she didn't name names, Eva Longoria described in an open letter how she "dreaded the days I had to go to work with that person because it was pure torture."

Many fans believed that Longoria was referring to Hatcher, which may explain her absence from the upcoming reunion.

Crikey, the drama off camera if as major as on screen, eh?

We'll be tuning in to watch the live stream action unfold this Sunday 12th April via the Stars in the House website.
