No More Desperate Housewives

A thought occured to me today:

After the tumultous season finale, there will be no more housewives on Desperate Housewives.

There are multiple definitions on, but I'm using this one:

n : a wife who who manages a household while her husband earns the family income
Susan, the divorcee, hasn't been a wife since before the show premiered, plus she has her own business (I think -- that just sort of popped in out of nowhere). Gabrielle's husband no longer earns any income (and she's not likely to be a wife much longer). Lynette is swapping with her husband, leaving behind the household management while he abandons the family income. And Bree is now more of a housewidow (though I still don't believe that Rex is dead).

Note to Emmy voters: Arrested Development's title not only works, it works on multiple levels. Please take that into consideration.

So, I guess they're just Desperate...Women? Or in the case of Nicollette Sheridan, Desperate Cat-Monsters.
