Keck's Exclusives: Desperate Housewives Summons Sarah Paulson Back to the Lane

Sarah Paulson, last seen on Desperate Housewives back in 2007, is returning to Wisteria Lane in her role as Lynette's loser sister, Lydia. But oh how things have changed. "Lynette always helped put the pieces back in Lydia's disastrous personal life, but she is now engaged and shows up with her new fiancé," previews executive producer Bob Daily. With Lynette newly separated from Tom, Lydia is now the one offering a shoulder to cry on. "We'll hear her say, 'Oh Lynette, I'm so sorry. What can I do to help?' The seeds of sibling rivalry are planted as the roles are reversed." TV fans may also remember Sarah from such series as Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Deadwood.

Mega Buzz on Housewives, House, Smallville & More!

Senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor answer your questions!I'm glad to hear that Desperate Housewives' Gaby is staying frumpy, if only for a bit longer. Any other scoop to share? — JillMatt: I almost forgot that I had gleaned this from my TCA party talk with exec producer Bob Daily (I blame my third Cape Cod...), but now here it is: Bree won't make do with just one kid for long. We will see Joy Lauren back as Danielle Van De Camp very soon — and not in flashback.At House's TCA session all I saw was Hugh Laurie, Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps and the "new team." Does that mean that Jennifer Morrison (Cameron) and Jesse Spencer (Chase) are no longer part of the show? — KerryMickey: Very observant, Kerry, but I'm told their absence is not significant. Both Morrison and Spencer remain series regulars. In fact, an upcoming ep promises to shed new light on the couple. Any romantic relationships for Dr. House this season? — StephanieMickey: There's a ru... read more

Spiderwick Premiere: Heroes' Hayden and More Young Stars

What better way to cheer up temporarily unemployed child actors than to invite them to the screening of a larger-than-life fantasy film? The Spiderwick Chronicles premiere at Paramount Studios attracted the young stars of Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives and Heroes, all willing to share stories of how they have been passing their time while Wisteria Lane and "Mode" Magazine gather dust. "I don't think I've been having a vacation!" a determined-looking Hayden Panettiere told reporters. "I just got back from D.C. and let me tell you — politics are tiring. If I was in politics, I think I'd tear my hair out." The 18-year-old anti-whaling activist, who is also part of Declare Yourself, recently returned from a trip to Washington, D.C., where she was speaking on behalf of the Whaleman Foundation. "I've spent so much time with these animals that it's just so close to home now. I'm in this fight till the end."Desperate Housewives' Joy Lauren has had time to think about her character a... read more

Can ABC Please Dive Deeper into its Guest-star Pool?

Coming in fall 2008: a new ABC sitcom starring Eddie Cibrian and Josh Randall as wacky roommates! That's my prediction based on the omnipresence of those two TV journeymen as guest stars for the Alphabet network. Within the span of a week, Ed alum Randall reprised his Men in Trees role of Annie's loutish brother (in an episode taped last season, I grant you) and also surfaced on Private Practice as Addison's would-be (if not for his propensity for probing his posterior...) beau. Cibrian, meanwhile, recently played Karen's ex-husband on Dirty Sexy Money, and this week can be seen pitching woo at Samantha Who? In a similar vein, ABC tapped Sara Gilbert to play a convenience-store robbing mom-to-be on Private Practice mere weeks after the Roseanne vet visited CBS' Big Bang Theory. (That was the PP episode which went for the sweeps month hat trick: Name Guest Star, Emergency Baby Delivery and Hostage Situation.)Setting aside my opinions of any of the aforementioned actors (Randall's app... read more

Inside Desperate Housewives: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

In the last four years, Joy Lauren has had to contend with her mother's neuroses and alcoholism, her father's murder by poisoning, her manipulative brother's hit-and-run, a new stepdad with secrets of his own, a foolhardy decision to run away with a murderous neighborhood boy, an affair with her high-school history teacher and, most recently, teen pregnancy — courtesy of someone else's boyfriend. Truth be told, that's the life led by "little Miss Van de Tramp" aka Danielle, the daughter of Marcia Cross' Bree Hodge on Desperate Housewives (Sundays, 9 pm/ET, ABC). When the real Joy Lauren spoke to about her two divergent lives, she was a sensible and courteous 18-year-old, clearly saving the adolescent dramatics for the screen. I've really enjoyed watching you play a pregnant teenager and seeing read more
