Exclusive: 'Housewives' Desperate for Steven Weber

Posted on


I’ve long suspected that Julie Meyer was harboring some serious unresolved daddy issues, and this casting scoop pretty much confirms it: When Susan’s now-adult daughter (Andrea Bowen) returns to Wisteria Lane next month, she’ll be bringing along one helluva surprise: boyfriend Steven Weber.

I kid you not.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Desperate Housewives has cast the ex-Wings man as Julie’s thrice-divorced college professor-turned-lover, whose sudden appearance leads Susan to double her crazy-pill intake.

Lucky for Mom, the happy couple’s visit will be brief; as of now, Weber and (presumably) Bowen are only on board for one episode.

Knee-jerk reaction? Intrigued by this unusual pairing? Or is this Housewives‘ ickiest plot to date? Comment away!
