Women's Issues

A Humiliating Business was a great episode for the seventh season of The Desperate Housewives.Before I discuss the reasons,let us recall the important events that happened.

Renee makes a job proposition to Lynette that is hard to refuse.After some consideration,Lynette offers Susan to become the babysitter for Paige which she accepts with lots of hesitation.Meanwhile,Bree and Beth are into uncomfortable situations as the former is unwilling to tell Keith that she is going through her menopause stage and the latter is beginning to question her her husband's motives in their marriage.Finally,Gabrielle becomes suspicious and feels a lot of discomfort as well just like Bree and Beth after her gay neighbor Bob strikes up a friendship with Carlos.

No question that this show was superb as we get to see many inconveniences and discomforts that most of the housewives are feeling and experiencing.Some of them can also be humiliating.These moments made is extremely funny and entertaining. It was also shocking in the sense that viewers particularly women can really relate to the issues being faced by the housewives.In the end,one can only feel with anticipation with what happens next in the succeeding episode of the seventh season.
