Andy's 'Desperate Housewives' Thanksgiving: Gaby Plots To Keep Her Daughter & Bree Hears Wedding Bells!

Season 7, episode 8: ‘Sorry Grateful’ brought crying babies & illegal immigrants galore!

In the spirit of the Nov. 14 episode’s title (yeah, I think I’ll do that from now on) there were definitely things I was “sorry” about and “grateful” for. Obviously I felt sorry for the crumbling families (Gaby’s immigration snafoo, Susan’s crying fits and Beth’s mommy issues) but at the same time, I was grateful for all the same reasons. We’ve got some serious drama on our hands, here — and I’m talking death-threatening-husband-stealing-felony-committing DRAMA.

I’m sorry for…

  1. Hector, Carmen and Grace: Thanks to Gaby’s (Eva Longoria Parker) selfish — and slightly drunken — behavior, the police discovered that Hector and Carmen are illegal immigrants. But since Grace, who’s Gaby’s biological daughter, was born in the US, it looks like Gaby’s going to work that selfish magic again to keep her. ¡Escandalo!
  2. Susan (Teri Hatcher): She couldn’t stand listening to Lynette’s (Felicity Huffman) daughter cry herself to sleep because — as she reveals in a dramatic form only the Hatch can deliver — she and MJ both cry themselves to sleep because Mike (James Denton) is still off working in Alaska.
  3. Felicia (Harriet Harris): Her whole plan to expose Paul (Mark Moses) is blowing up in her face — and she is looking all kinds of crazy (see above photo for further proof.) Her daughter Beth has been working for her this whole time, but she’s starting to love her forced husband Paul. And, even worse, she believes he didn’t actually kill Martha.
  4. Bree (Marcia Cross): Her big Thanksgiving with Keith (Brian Austin Green) and his parents was totally ruined by Keith’s parents deciding to get a divorce. That definitely put the brakes on Keith’s planned proposal to Bree. Meanwhile, it looks like Keith’s dad (John Schneider) has the hots for “red delicious” as well.

I’m grateful for…

  1. The few remaining selfish (aka entertaining) women on Wisteria Lane: Gaby and René (Vanessa Williams!) Gaby’s selfish desire to keep her biological daughter around is fueling the show’s best dramatic story line, and René’s not-so-subtle advances on Tom (Doug Savant) make me think we might have actually be getting showdown we were promised at the start of the season.

When gabby found out that carol told her that the daughter they been raised was not there they wroth both switch at birth and and the another child where born in the same hospital and nurser Theresa told someone that her secret might turn apart she need to talk to someone about those secret she have something wrong with the baby where switch at birth with the wrong family

When they told the family that the daughter was been raised by a another family by the name of sandrez Juanita was not gabby and carol slois bioigal daughter they wroth legal the daughter but she was been switched with the wrong family and they should give back what right to those children

They should not be alow to keep someone daughter and found out that the hospital where srew upthey told the parent that daughter should be be right by them. And they have no right do give up those daughter. And carol is thinking him about himself

But he alway do I was thinking about be the father of another children she be raised by they own child they should be back with the right DNA parent

Cuz that is a leg it not doing any good for those children they need be in to custody of her parent and by bioigal parent

Grace should be with her bioigal parent are gabby and carol they should be not give up for those children they need to be with the right parent and that us broking the law

I was think that truth they should be back with bioigal parent I think that children they be with the right family and parent

The law is about not broking the law and stick by them. It not was you think in america in wisklans lane they should be reported for doing this band they would go to jail and be arrested for this

But you have to stick to those ruled but you have to it against the law do not think what mean to those children they need be in custody my the right family and parent

Ask bob he was the lawyer for this custody think for gabby and carol
