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.”

There were many things Gabrielle Solis knew for certain. She knew red was her color. She knew diamonds went with everything and she knew men were all the same. But the one thing Gabrielle knew above all else...she would never want children. Unfortunately for Gabrielle, her husband, Carlos, felt differently. Yes, Gabrielle Solis knew without a doubt she didn't want to be a mother, but what she couldn't know was just how much her husband wanted to be a father, or that he'd been tampering with her birth control for months. Or that within one week's time, she'd be pregnant
