Doug Savant

This is going to be hard to watch. With their marriage having crumbled at the end of last season, Desperate Housewives' one stable couple, Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Tom (Doug Savant), will enter the series' eighth and final season as a separated couple on their way to divorce. Executive producer Bob Daily confirms to me that both will be seen dating new people.

The series is on the lookout for a fortysomething Kate Walsh-type actress to play the recurring role of Jane, Tom's new girlfriend, who will prove a threat to Lynette. And that's not all. This Jane tramp has a hot daughter named Chloe who is described as a hard-bodied yoga instructor in her early twenties. Now we just know either Tom or one of Tom and Lynette's ginger sons is going to take an interest in this PYT.

Oh Lynette, we feel for you.
