    I like Vanessa, too, but if they're going to have her character and Lynette trading barbs all season, that'll get old fast.

    Re: Desperate Housewives (Season 5)

    I enjoyed the show...have missed it. Yes, it's silly and way over the top but I like it.
    I'm just confused why Susan can't use the money she got for the strip club that her dead ex husband left her. I understand that Mike has a lot of pride but that's taking it pretty far to have to move out of their house and use only 1-ply toilet paper! Probably just another excuse for Susan to be the sex kitten she always is. I never like Terri Hatcher, even when she was Lois Lane on the new Superman show so I might be a little biased here.

    What happened to Katherine (Dana Delaney)? Is she gone from the cast? I can't remember the storyline after she stabbed herself. I know she was getting professional help for her problems but that's all I remember.

    Susan already went through the strip club money helping to pay off Mike's debts and the IRS at the end of last season. She and Gaby found out that Mike borrowed the money from Carlos, and made him confess and finally accept Susan's help. That's why they ended up renting their house out.

    Katherine is pretty much gone for good, except maybe some guest appearances, since Dana Delaney got her own medical show, Body of Proof. I'm not sure when it's supposed to premiere.

    Whatever happened to Susan and illustrating children's books? That was her job for years. I would assume that that would pull in some money since she supported herself and Julie with it before. They just sort of forgot about that, I guess.

    Something happened to her agent. I don't remember it that well, but he was going down and took her down with him. Although I don't know why she didn't just get a new agent.

    Also she would have had alimony and child support payments from Karl (is that his name?) while she was raising Julie.

    I don't understand why Mike apparently has such HUGE debts. I realize it's TV, and you are not supposed to think too deeply about this stuff.

    Thanks! I had forgotten that part.
    But like the other poster, am wondering why Mike has such huge debt since Susan paid off those other things. He didn't even have a house with a mortgage. But I'm probably thinking too deeply about what's basically a soap opera. It's like asking why the children on soaps grow up so fast when the parents never age at all.

    Was not impressed with Susan's "job".

    Felt bad for Gabby when Carlos told her about Juanita. How do you digest something like that & what do you do???

    I thought last night's show was a new low with Susan's porn role, the creepy guy with the new wife, Bree ogling the handyman, and Tom revealing he once had something going with Lynnette's friend.

    I think I was born in the wrong century. I realize this is mere escapism, but I'm still very disappointed with the overall low content.

    Judging by what plumbers earn (at least in this area) Mike should be swimming in dough. It's one of those "can't lose" professions, imo. Everyone always needs a plumber, at least several times in their lives. Plus, if he does high end bathroom renovations, he should be really raking it in. But you are right, this is TV after all, and we just have to suspend reality. Next week Lynette's baby will be in preschool already.

    ETA: I see Thedragonlady and I had the same idea about the children growing up so quickly on TV. *Must read through all posts prior to posting.*
