<EM>Desperate Housewives</EM>' Brenda Strong Desperate Housewives' Brenda Strong

As if having hunky Desperate Housewives plumber James Denton host the 2006 Miss America Pageant wasn't enough, it has since been announced that Brenda Strong, aka narrator Mary Alice (and Miss Arizona 1980 to boot!), will serve on the panel of judges. The annoying thing is when Strong goes to write down her vote during the Jan. 21 CMT telecast, she'll lead off with some drivel like, "It was an ordinary day, one like any other. Birds were singing, bees were buzzing... And so was Gaby...." Ugh. Someone shoot her again.
