Old Lady Sex: Coming to Desperate Housewives!

at . Comments

We mean no offense to Kathryn Joosten, who we loved on The West Wing and adore on Desperate Housewives.

But the following news sort of makes our stomach turn:

According to TV Guide Magazine, the 69-year old actress will be featured in her first sex scene as Mrs. McCluskey on the new season of Desperate Housewives.

“They had all these old-lady nighties hanging there,” Joosten said of her trip to wardrobe prior to the taping of the scene. “I said, ‘I’m not going to wear a nightie. We’re supposed to be in bed getting it on!’”

In the end, the actress basically won out: she was permitted to perform the take in only a skimpy flesh-colored body stocking. However, don't worry too much, viewers: the eldierly couple is shown postcoital.

“He’s asleep and I’m looking at him,” Kathryn said. “I convinced the director to let me do one take holding a cigarette, but I’m sure they won’t use it.”

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.

Mike

There is a prayer intended to give strength to people faced with circumstances they don't want to accept. The power of the prayer comes from it's insight into human nature. Because so many of us rage against the hand that life has dealt us. Because so many of us are cowardly. And afraid to stand up for what is right. Because so many of us give into despair when faced with an impossible choice. The good news for those who utter these words is that God will hear you and answer your prayer. The bad news is that sometimes the answer is no.
