    In real life I don't like devious children, either. But this isn't real life.. it's a tv show. And I think it is absolutely hysterical that Gaby has been saddled with a child with a temperment that matches her own. Just a further demonstration that Gaby acts like a churlish 4 year old.

    In the interest of full disclosure: In real life I also don't like perfectionist women like Bree, deviant children like the Scavo children and mothers that cannot control them, wimpy men like Tom, manipulative wenches like Edie, whiny women like Susan, nor murderers like Katherine, however well intended. But on tv, in a satire, they can be pretty darned amusing.

    I agree. You are signing my song! This is a satire/dark comedy and does not try to imitate life in any way.

    Unfortunately, most. I don't know any murderous women.

    I used to know one - I did not care for her at all. More disturbingly, she did not care for me at all.

    That you KNOW you know! Maybe they are just good at covering up!

    If you google her Madison Delagarza, the first page that comes up is a teen sight and there are some pics of her, some at a younger age before she became obese. She was cute. Too bad.
    Some websites say the girl actually is 6.. she's also Demi Lovato's [Disney star] half sister.

    Regarding the new Gabby storyline, it really isn't that interesting to me.Edie's husband... that's interesting. I'm hoping for some clues to his motivations in tonight's episode. The only possible explanation I gathered from the first episode was that he could be a relative of the mother and daughter that died after Susan and Mike's accident. But that's a bit too obvious for DH, so I could be way off....

    It could be that since it makes sense.....but considering the show jumped 5 years....who knows who did what to whom and when

    Awww...Porter grew a heart. You know Lynette has to get that it's typical teenage behavior (especially teenage boys) to stop sharing with their parents. Okay. That's the first thing I wanted to comment on.
    #2: Am I the only one who thought Orson suddenly became almost dangerously controlling tonight? Do I see an attack coming soon? Perhaps some slapping around or something?
    #3: That guy that Edie's married to is really really creepy.
    #4: Would you want your new beau to be hanging out with your ex?
    Enough said.
