Yesterday afternoon, I received an email from commenter “jrkumor” saying:
I am surprised you haven’t covered this past weekend’s episode of “Desperate Housewives” particularly Dana Delany’s character’s dream sequence involving Julie Benz’s character.
And I was surprised that she was surprised, because it’s not like I’m signed up for email alerts from the “Desperate Housewives” fan club. That show is a rock-solid #3 in ABC’s patented “Chicks with More Estrogen than Brains” lineup, right behind “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” (the latter of which is my preferred euphemism for masturbation).
ANYWAY. It turns out that Julie Benz’s ex-stripper character showed up, moved in with Dana Delany, stirred up lesbian feelings in Delany by being all sexy and giving her a kiss in this atrocious scene, which sparked the dream that jrkumor emailed about. Basically, Dana Delany’s all, “I made you breakfast,” and Julie’s like, “Oops! I got syrup ALL. OVER. ME.” It makes Marilyn Monroe’s performance of “Happy Birthday” look subtle. And I like it that way. I’d take Julie over Marilyn in a heartbeat. Because, y’know, Marilyn’s dead.
