Jeers to Desperate Housewives for wasting Justine Bateman in a silly subplot. I was excited when I heard one of my teenage crushes would be visiting Wisteria Lane, but couldn't they have come up with a better-fitting role for the Family Ties alum than Ellie, a drug dealer who moves into Gaby and Carlos' house?
