Desperate Housewives Tour

I love Desperate Housewives.

I’ve seen every episode since the pilot aired October 2004. Big deal, right?

I’ve even hung out at my friend’s house who lives across the street from Eva Longoria, the actess who plays my favorite character, Gabby. Ok, kind of creepy.

So, when I saw a full access set tour of the ABC hit show at a charity auction, I knew it had to be mine!!!!! When it comes to shopping, I rarely go home empty handed. I won the set tour (and helped a good cause).

I knew who I wanted to accompany me on the tour. My friend Kary is a fellow DH fanatic. Even though she works in the entertainment industry, she is just as goo goo for Gabby and the gang of Wisteria Lane as I am. We often sit around at kid playdates and discuss all the characters as if they’re our personal friends. (Can you believe Susan let that bitch take her man?, Did you see how cute the new gardener is?, Ktherine went crazy on everybody….I can’t believe Karl is bangin Bree now….etc)

The set tour was amazing. I couldn’t believe I was standing on Wisteria Lane!!!!!! I got to walk in everyone’s house, see the soundstages, and even hob nobbed at Craft Services with the crew (that was some goooood baked Ziti!).

**DISCLAIMER: If you don’t watch DH, then you probably will not care about these photos/commentary.

**DISCLAINER: If you don’t watch DH, you’re a loser and I’m pretty sure we’re not friends.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did…..

Mike the plumbers ride (he wanted to take me out to Scavo’s pizzeria).

Lynette’s car…I’m looking crazy bc I didn’t realize one of the crew was sitting inside!

Lynette’s house….I was snapping pix left and right. lol

Making Susan’s specialty…tea!!! And everything on the sets are real. No props in the houses.

Hangin with Kary on Susan’s porch.

We would sooooo fit in on Wisteria Lane. Kary was so “Lynette” following behind me on the tour muttering, “don’t steal anything Nora!”….lol

Photos inside Gabby’s house (told ya I was snapping everything)

Gabby’s porch where she use to gaze at John the hottttt gardener.

Me striking a Gabby pose (I’m such a cornball).

Bree’s house…those are all FAKE flowers BTW, but they look soooo real. (oh, and notice Orsen’s ramp)

Gabby’s bathroom. Her house was my fave inside. The kitchen is AMAZING, but was covered bc they weren’t filming so I couldn’t get a pic :-(

Bree’s living room. Notice Orsen’s w/c, I can’t stand him!!!!! He’s soooo annoying.

Bree’s kitchen was pretty awesome too. Her house was so detailed inside. Everything was organized and labeled.

Bree’s dining room. Looove the chairs. All the pics in the frames were really Bree and “family”.

Lynette’s kitchen. Scene of Tom’s numerous emasculations.

Remember this episode? One of my favs, when they named MJ….there’s a beautiful mural in MJ’s room.

The globes from Susan’s art class: Jaguars, Giraffes, and forgot the other one, but HILARIOUS episode…

The DH God himself, Marc Cherry. Creator, writer, producer= RICH! $$$$$$$$$$…super nice guy!

    I am so jealous. Your pictures look just like the show! Susan is my least favorite. I wish they would bring Edie back.

    I can’t stop staring at these photos. I am so jealous. Are those real houses? Did you see any of the stars? I can’t believe you got a picture of the globes. Was Mike there?! I have so many questions. THAT IS MY SHHOW!!!!

    That’s awesome you got to meet Marc Cherry. I hear he doesn’t socialize much on the set.

    Wow..your pictures were amazing.. is brees house and the Scavo house pretty much fake inside and all shot on a sound stage? I thought all the houses were just shells and cool to see that some of them ! I thought I read somewhere that Brees house was actually bathrooms for the crew!!

      All the houses are actually real houses on a real street. I was expecting a sound stage also. The hospital scene is on a sound stage. They have that one room they always use, but the homes are real with real props. One of the houses does have a bathroom that the crew uses (I can’t remember which one), but it’s an actual house. The budget for that show was insane!

    The biting rtailey of Sick was highly resonant A dark but genuine reflection of one’s greatest fears scribbled with morbidly honest regret. Generativity versus stagnation in the great quest to reconcile one’s deepest wounds and lost hopes in a finite, delicate existence. It is a tale without resolution that, for some reason, feels reminiscent of peanut butter, clostridium difficile, and unrequited love. Thank you for being real in a way so devoid of pride that is somehow makes it less alienating to be miserable, ashamed, and completely alone.

    Gabby is definitely my favorite also. She is my motherhood twin. 
    That’s awesome you met Marc Cherry. I hear he’s the nicest guy. God love him for creating that show.

    I like and admire Lynette’s strong sense of self. She is career minded and a great mom. And doesn’t take any shit from her man.

    Definitely Bree. The show got boring last season and the one before but is making a good comeback now.

    I like Gabby too. I didn’t like when they made her fat. I like the idea of her being more fabulous and beautiful than the average mom.

    Thanks for showcasing the show.  I bet Gabby is the Hotmama.

    I love Susan. And I love that she and Mike are married, but I miss her having someone to fight with. I like it when she fought with Edie and Katherine. Maybe she could have a rival teacher at school?

    I really like Bree. She is always so put together and has an answer for everything. I like how she is soft and feminie but doesn’t take any crap from anybody. Oh and she has a gun! Bree rocks.
