Sometimes we can't verify a story, but it sounds so good we just have to share. We don't know if this story is true, but folks are talking about it and we want you to know about it!
Although it's totally a rumor, we hear there may be a big plot twist that will change "Desperate Housewives" forever. The buzz has creator Marc Cherry planning to turn back time -- or speed the clock ahead -- in order to shake up Wisteria Lane even more than that recent tornado did!
Actor James Denton, who plays plumber Mike Delfino, added major fuel to the fire during an interview with Chicago radio station WTMX. "I don't know if you've [heard] there's supposedly a big time jump at the end of this season, either forward or backward a number of years," he said. "So we'll lose some cast members. That's what we've been told, so none of us are feeling too smug. We're just waiting to see how it shakes out." (This time jump just might be the way Nicollette Sheridan's Edie Britt gets written off the show!)
Whether the Housewives go back or forward, the juicy plot possibilities are endless. For his part, James can only hope to be among the cast members who survive the time warp. "If they go backward [in time], you know, Delfino wasn't even there yet," he said. "If they go forward, by then Susan's baby will be 6 or 7 years old and all that stuff, so it's going to be tricky. But I think it'll enable the writers to do some really creative things and sort of reset the show."
We'd love if it "Desperate Housewives" flashes back to before Mary Alice's suicide, so she can quit narrating and be a full-time Wisterian at last.
