The “Desperate Housewives” TV Show has long been one of our favorite entertainments. We wait for it each Sunday night, just like it was family. We have come to know and love some of the characters well.
Here are highlights about some of our favorite characters from The “Desperate Housewives” TV show on November 7th, 2010.
One of the key ingredients of this episode was humiliation.
1. Gabby – You can always expect the unexpected from Gabby. Who knew what was going on when Carlos did not want to ‘bond’ with Bob? Little did we suspect there might be a planned seduction in the works.
Gabby, being her usual selfish self, gets it all planned out to have Bob come over for dinner and then treat him to opera tickets, since she thinks that is what he will like, right?
Wrong! Not Bob. He is a ‘manly’ man, going for the basketball games and such. Well, good for him, says Carlos, and immediately they become the best of buds, watching ball games, going out, and coming home slaphappy drunk.
Gabby is puzzled until Bob’s ex friend comes looking for Bob, and once Gabby tells him Bob has only gone out with Carlos, the fat is in the fire!
“Oh, but”, (you know you always have to watch out anytime there is anything like an ‘Oh, but’), “Oh, but”, Lee says, “Bob has always had a crush on Carlos!”
Then Gabby, in her own unique way, comes up with a solution to the matter of separating the now constant compadre’s, Carlos and Bob. She brings the ex-friend back into the picture and pushes him toward Bob. Gabby leaves them happily together and we see her ‘dusting her hands’ off, for ‘mission accomplished’. Then she goes tumbling down the steps, humiliation intact!
2. Susan – About the time you think you have it all figured out – wham! Somebody always throws a monkey wrench into the game. Susan thinks she is getting a call for a great new job and goes rushing over to Lynette’s house, to find out she is only needed to be a nanny! What a let down and demoralizer this is for Susan.
Susan has been embarrassing herself and everyone around her by showing her temper when she doesn’t have enough money to purchase goods at the store. She thought she had the perfect solution with a new job with her friend Lynette that would be a real job. How the mighty are brought low! Susan’s humiliation is complete!
3. Bree – Who would ever expect Bree to be dating a guy 17 years younger than her? Then Bree gets caught up in hot flashes and lo and behold! She goes to a woman doctor to get help to disguise and mask her oncoming age related problem. All is well until her new younger guy, Keith, takes her to meet his parents and guess who his mother is? That would be his mother, the doctor, all right.
Bree’s humiliation is in being forced to admit she is going through ‘the change’ in front of Keith’s parents.
From the previews of the next week’s show, it appears the real parents of Gabby’s daughter Juanita, may end up getting deported. That leads us to predict Gabby and Carlos’s real daughter comes to live with them. Since Juanita has a very real problem with Gabby’s excessive interest in the girl, we also predict ‘mucho fireworks’ in the Solis home!
