Kathy Najimy to Guest Star on Desperate Housewives

at .

Veteran actress Kathy Najimy has landed a role on Desperate Housewives.

The actress - who has appeared on a number of shows, including Privileged, King of the Hill and Numb3rs - will guest star in as a police officer with a surprising connection to Teri Hatcher’s Susan.

“Susan suspects Katherine was the one who attacked Julie, so she gets [a cop] to help her,”  creator Marc Cherry told Entertainment Weekly. “But then she finds out the policewoman went to high school with her — and Susan stole her boyfriend, too! So [Najimy] has been going around the past 30 years resenting her.”
