Looking down on her friends and family isn't a way of life for Mary Alice Young. It's a way of death. One day, in her perfect house, in the loveliest of suburbs, Mary Alice ended it all. Now she's taking us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors, commenting from her elevated POV. Her husband's acting suspicious, the neighbors are talking, and her girlfriends are wondering why one of their own would do something so rash… and so messy.

There's Susan, the divorcée who goes to extraordinary lengths for love. Lynette, the ex-career woman who traded the boardroom for boredom, mixed with moments of sheer panic. Bree, the Martha Stewart on steroids, whose family is about to mutiny. And Gabrielle, the ex-model with everything she always wanted - a rich husband, a big house - so what is she doing with the 17-year-old gardener? As for Mary Alice's husband, Paul, there must be a good reason why he's digging up the pool in the middle of the night.

From her unique vantage point, Mary Alice sees more now than she ever did alive, and she's planning to share all the delicious secrets that hide behind every neighbor's closed door in this seemingly perfect American suburb. The writer of Melrose Place and General Hospital (executive producer Charles Pratt Jr.) has helped create a primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on happily ever after.

  • To all members: There's an official FAQ for this community. Please read, especially if you're new here.

  • Please remember that Desperate Housewives has fans all over the world. While the United States sees the episodes first, fans in other countries are not so fortunate. Therefore, if you want to talk about previous episodes, better to be safe than sorry and put spoilers (no matter how minor) about the episodes behind a cut. If you don't know how, this link should help you.

  • Please only make posts that are related to Desperate Housewives, the cast, and the crew. Off-topic posts will be deleted and depending on the severity of off-topicality, the poster may be banned (e.g. posts on how to make money quick will result in the poster being banned; an obvious mistake of the poster posting an entry that should have been in their personal journal will merely be deleted).

  • If you are posting multi-fandom icons, please make sure you have 3 or more icons that are Desperate Housewives related. Also, please actually post just the Desperate Housewives icons (even in preview) into the community.

  • Do not post to the community asking where you can download episodes. ABC.com airs the new episodes on their website for free and iTunes offers each episode for a small fee to U.S. residents.

  • This is not the place for drama. If you think a member's causing trouble, notify one of the moderators (listed below) and they'll take the appropriate action.

  • Check the memories or tags for useful links of interest.
