Who else was a huge fan of Desperate Housewives? It’s been nearly three years since we said goodbye to the residents of Wisteria Lane. And since yesterday was Sunday, it got me to thinking how much I miss that series and how much I enjoyed planting myself in front of the tv every week. It truly was appointment television for me. I loved everything about it. The characters. The comedy. The drama. And the mystery. It had a little bit of everything. So imagine how excited I was when I got to interview one of its stars back in 2011. And he couldn’t have been nicer. I’m talking about the actor who played, Tom Scavo, for 8 seasons, Mr. Doug Savant. I had the opportunity to talk with him just before the end of the 7th season. And we discussed some of what was ahead for the residents of Wisteria Lane, but mostly, what was ahead for one of the show’s most popular couples, Tom & Lynette Scavo. What I enjoyed most about this interview was his passion for the show and how proud he was of his tv relationship and what it represented.
