Out of commission
Desperate Housewives writers are scrambling to come up with creative ideas for Marcia Cross‘s uptight character Bree. Marcia, 44, recently learned she and her husband Tom Mahoney are expecting twins. Her doctor REALLY dropped a bombshell when he informed Marcia that since the pregnancy is somewhat risky, she will have to stay IN BED for the last three months. So writers are brainstorming to figure out Bree’s story line – will she go on a long “vacation,” to prison, or she might get trapped on a deserted island. The writers would like to have Bree at least calling in periodically on the show to keep her character involved.
