Get ready for some Desperate Housepartners. According to, a gay couple will move to Wisteria Lane around Episode 5. "We're going to have the first male desperate housewives," show creator and head writer Marc Cherry told the website. "They will move into the old Applewhite house, and one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher."

Cherry said he'll draw from his own life for inspiration. "Susan (Hatcher) wants to be so politically correct and show how open-minded she is [that] she puts her foot in her mouth instantly and it goes downhill from there," Cherry said. "I'm basing it a little bit on my relationship with my neighbors." The only thing still up in the air is who will play the new characters. "We just started writing the episodes," Cherry said. "So I probably won't start casting for another few weeks." - Reporting by Ali Gazan
