In the town of Fairview there’s a street called Wisteria Lane; a peaceful cul-de-sac with manicured lawns and beautiful houses. It’s a place where you know all your neighbors and your neighbors know all about you. It’s the perfect suburban fantasy.
But, behind every picket fence there are secrets. And, in every seemingly happy home, you’ll find jealousy, lust, passion, and sometimes…murder.
Welcome to Desperate Housewives. Just take a look at Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), the sweet girl next door who finally got everything she ever wanted. Or did she? And there’s Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), she was once a high-powered executive but then four…no, make that five, kids got in the way. How can she handle it? What about Bree Hodge (Marcia Cross)? That prim and proper homemaker used to be the best caterer in town. Now I hear she’s on the outs with her partners and…with another man. And, of course, there’s Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Parker), the sultry former runway model who’s now running after two children. She’s still as wicked as ever. Did I mention that glamorous socialite Renee Perry (Vanessa Williams) is moving in at the end of the block? Just wait ‘til they get a load of her.
It’s always hot on Wisteria Lane. These women have it all: friendship, fun, love, sex, excitement, danger, and the men…well, the men don’t stand a chance.
