Rose (Gloria LeRoy) an elderly woman recalls chasing Orson out of her home and then seeing a woman die in a terrible accident.

One of the women gets her car pulled over by the police for a minor matter, but the officer discovers a picnic basket of guns and knives in the car. Lynette falls in the shower, and Carlos saves Lynette. Chaos ensues as Carlos saw Lynette naked — and liked what he saw!

Question: Please tell me the rumors aren’t true about Lynette and Carlos having an affair on Desperate Housewives.
Ausiello: First I’m hearing of that rumor. I mean, she will end up working for him. And he will accidentally see her naked. And he will kind of like what he sees. And she will be flattered by the attention. But an affair? Again, first I’m hearing of it.

Though we’ve known for more than a month that Nicollette Sheridan will leave “Desperate Housewives” this season, the rumors about how her character Edie will depart Wisteria Lane were not officially confirmed. Until now…
Neal McDonough, who plays Edie’s sociopath husband Dave (he is determined to avenge the death of his former wife and daughter), told “Access Hollywood”‘s Billy Bush yesterday that he would indeed be the one to kill his current on-screen better half.
“It was hard for me,” he said to Bush. “Because Nic played my wife all year and she has become such a great friend.”
Fans following “Desperate Housewives” know that McDonough’s character is planning an ominous camping trip with Wisteria neighbors Mike Delfino (James Denton) — whom he holds responsible for his late family’s fate — and Delfino’s girlfriend Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany), which will play out this coming Sunday. But is it possible Edie may change her mind and crash the three-person wilderness party? Seems that way.
“I go hunting in the woods and I’m not hunting for deer,” McDonough admitted. “[It’s] a little WWE.”
However, don’t take the actor’s confession about Edie’s murder to mean that Mike Delfino and Katherine Mayfair are safe. McDonough also hinted that he may have more characters to off. “I’m not saying who I’m whacking.”
The median age on Wisteria Lane is about to go through the roof.
Veteran character actress Gloria LeRoy is joining Desperate Housewives as a neighborhood fixture — presumably a longtime one — who we’ll first meet next month, right around the time Nicollette Sheridan takes her last breath as Edie.
But a Housewives insider insists the 77-year-old thesp, who’s probably best known for her scene-stealing work as Mildred “Boom-Boom” Turner on All in the Family, is not replacing Sheridan. Rather, my Wisterian mole teases, her character, Rose, “will figure into Edie’s exit in a surprising way” — one that involves an increasingly cuckoo Orson, a violent act, and a touch of dementia. And not necessarily in that order.
In other Housewives casting news, Sarah Knowlton (Medium, House) has been tapped to play a woman who may or may not be having an affair with Tom.
