Desperate Housewives Spoilers: Same Sex Kiss Ahead!

at . Comments

Julie Benz made quite the impression on Desperate Housewives last night, debuting as a stripper named Robin.

The former Dexter star will apparently make an even bigger impression on a fellow character in a few weeks, however.

As first reported by TV Guide Magazine, viewers should expect Katherine and Robin to get especially close later this month.

“Everyone assumed I was going to come in and break up someone’s marriage, but there’s a whole different twist,” Benz said in an interview, and proves in the upcoming scene below:

Desperate Smooch

The actress goes on to explain the smooch above:

“This kiss comes out of a funny moment where we’re trying to ditch some guys,” he said, while Delany adds:

“I asked, ‘Am I becoming a man?’ And [creator] Marc Cherry said, ‘Close' For a woman in her fifties to make this announcement to her community is huge. I hope it sticks.”

So do many male viewers, but we can't help but ask:

Is this a logical storyline for the character? Or a publicity stunt for the show?
