Desperate Housewives and The Golden Girls
16 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

In Desperate Housewives episode #2.19, "Don't Look at Me," the opening scene with Mrs. Pate explaining to Lynette what her son had been doing with a ginger snap and a fellow student, series creator Marc Cherry is showing his roots. The name of that student is Cindy Lou Peoples, which was a name used in Cherry's earlier, brilliant series, "The Golden Girls."

In that episode, "Home Again Rose, Part 1," Rose (Betty White) had been unable to attend her high school reunion due to illness, so later, when they read an announcement for another, completely unknown, class reunion, they decide to make it Rose's. Upon arriving, each Girl picks up a nametag from the "no-show" table: Sophia is Myron Zuckerman and former Spanish teacher Mrs. Gonzalez; Blanche is the much-loathed Susan; Rose as Korean exchange student Kim Fong Toi, who looks "different on outside, same on inside"; and Dorothy, as Cindy Lou Peoples, who life seemed "almost as boring as" hers, until she is named Queen of the prom!
