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

So you're just not gonna talk to me, is that it? Fine. I don't need to talk. Okay. Yes, I had a little affair. It wasn't the best thing to do, and I'm not proud of it. But it's not the worst thing that could have happened. Nobody died. Oh, don't be such a martyr, Carlos. Okay, it takes two people. How many times did you go off on your little business trips and leave me alone? See, so technically, you cheated, too. It's just your mistress was your work.
