When the Desperate Housewives got it all wrong
27 October 2008 | by ( – See all my reviews

If there is an episode where the guys can say "That that! We know that women aren't always right!" this is the episode.

This is the episode where the desperate housewives have got it wrong.

Bree couldn't realized that her husband, Olsen Hodge was beginning to resent her for neglected him to take care of her career.

Susan couldn't realized that there was nothing wrong for her ex-husband to befriend her current boyfriend.

Gabby couldn't realized that her social status was going down the ladder, and she was no longer in the list for social gatherings and invitations.

But the best of all, Lynette didn't realize that it is a big no-no to instant message your child, pretending to be a sixteen year old girl named Sarah J. She managed to keep it a secret, but failed miserably when she sent a message, signing it off by 'Love, Mom. Hilarious!!
