Desperate Housewives' First Gay Couple

One Life to Live actor Tuc Watkins and ex-Judging Amy star Kevin Rahm have been cast as Desperate Housewives first gay couple!

According to TVGuide, “Watkins will play Bob, described as a country mouse who leaves the big city for greener (and quieter) pastures. Rahm is his bitchy partner, Lee. Both roles are of the recurring variety. The characters’ names are a tribute to ABC News’ Bob Woodruff and his wife Lee, whom series creator Marc Cherry befriended last spring.”

The Desperate Housewives season premiere airs Sunday, Sept. 30@ 9PM ET/PT on ABC.

    I’m sorry, but gay couples on tv is hardly ground-breaking. Jesus Christ, anyone ever hear of a show called “Will & Grace”? Must be a slow newsday.

    We’ll, I think that is is a normal thing these days, I mean who really cares anymore. I think that the show SUCKS anyways so I could really careless eirther way but, I mean they are by far the first show to have this.

    I think Andrew and Justin were the first gay couple on the show.
    And a bitchy gay partner; how original… not.

    The David Beckham/Robbie Williams rumor sounded a lot more enticing.

    Tuc is a complete hottie – and is/was hilarious on OLTL. He’s a great actor and too sexy for his own good.

    I’m going to have to start watching DH now. I can’t wait for this storyline…oughta be sweet.

    Donna Says:

    I think it’s great to have two gay guys. It’s normal now to have that
    How about two lesbians on Wisteria Lane ?

    Scarlett Says:

    This is nothing new! I think DH is running out of storylines. I do like the show, and I think it is funny. Boring as far as I am concerned. Marc Cherry has already flirted with this storyline many times so far.

    Maybe Beckham will somehow to a gay guest role. I would love to see him in anything. Preferably my bedroom. (Sorry VB)

    Tuc Watkins is hysterical. He likes to ad-lib alot. And he has a great bod.

    xx Says:

    I love Tuc (didn’t know that was his name though) on OLTL—he’s hysterical and charming and despicable and you can’t help but love him.
    I don’t particularly follow or like DH anymore but I just might tune in to see Tuc in a different role. Hope he finds the following he deserves.

    Eathan Says:

    How are they the first gay couple, weren’t Andrew and Justin the first?

  24. 24
    Eathan Says:

    Plus, they’re not hot, couldn’t they cast someone hotter and younger. Jesse Metcalfe should have had a gay role.
