Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Gabrielle Lang (as Eva Longoria Parker)
Carlos Solis (as Richardo Antonio Chavira)
Danielle Van De Kamp (as Joy Lauren)


Edie receives unexpected news from her doctor which makes her suspect that Carlos is cheating on her with Gabrielle, who has a reconnection to her former flame, John. Susan tries to act friendly with the new neighbors, a gay couple named Bob Hunter and Lee McDermett, and receives unexpected results when they mistake her highly neurotic, mental disorder as homophobia. Bree receives an unexpected baby shower, as well as an unexpected visitor: her former mother-in-law, Phyllis Van De Kamp, who immediately suspects that she's not pregnant which forces Bree to confide in her about Danielle's condition. Meanwhile, Tom receives an unexpected evening with Lynnette. Elsewhere, Katherine's Aunt Lily arrives for a visit and to tell her that she is dying from a terminal illness and wants to die in peace. But Katherine tries to prevent Lily from telling Dylan something about the terrible secret that they are both hiding. Written by Moviedude1

All About Sex And Secrets
10 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If There's Anything I Can't Stand presents us many funny and interesting stories.First,we get to see a gay couple being welcomed at Wisteria Lane.They are going to be the new people in the neighborhood after having Katherine.Too bad that the first one to greet the couple was Susan who apparently is not to accommodating.

As for Lynette,she goes with Gabrielle on a wig store to buy a wig as she is still in her chemo sessions.While on their way,Gaby shares her some tips on improving her sex life.And it worked.The wig and Gaby's tips delivered when Lynette and Tom made love.Too bad that it increased Tom's appetite for sex. LOL

Meanwhile,Edie is shocked when she receives some news from her gynecologist as she happens to have crabs or pubic lice.This leads into more trouble when Carlos gets infected by it.Considering that he is having an affair with Gaby,it only gets worse when Victor also gets infected.This only spells trouble as affairs are being discovered due to crabs. Very funny!!!!!!!!!!

Finally,the women throw a baby shower for Bree as they have yet to realize that her secret.Her former mother-in-law Phyllis was among those invited at the party. Will Bree finally reveal it is her daughter who is pregnant and herself?

Lies and sex have been the subject on many of the story lines as the writers do a great job of keeping us laughing and tuned in.Can't wait on the next episode!!!!
