Desperate Housewife Teases "a Lot of Juicy Stuff"

Speaking with TV Guide Wednesday night at the Bebe Lingerie Launch Party, Brenda Strong (aka the dearly departed Mary Alice) confirmed that which Ausiello reported a few weeks back: When Desperate Housewives resumes its season in April/May, a significant amount of time will have passed since the Jan. 7 episode. "A lot of storyline got dropped because of [the strike-shortened season], so we're going to consolidate it [into seven episodes]," the actress shared. As such, look for the balance of episodes to feature picket-fence-to-picket-fence drama. "It will definitely be worth watching," says Strong, "because a lot of the juicy stuff will be jam-packed into every episode. You don't want to miss it."The super-soapiness, she says, will "tie up Season 4 in a nice bow, so we can start fresh with Season 5." Or as Mary Alice, queen of the well-placed homily would say, "What's old is what's new again."
