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.

# 1

the storyline is probably going to be g-rated

# 2

They probably running out of better stories…

# 3

Tuc is gay in real life so not much of stretch

# 4

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.

# 5

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.

# 6

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

# 7

I LOVE TUC WATKINS!!!! This just MIGHT make me tune in next season.

# 8

The gay couple should get their own show.I hate desperate housewives.

# 9

hey, what happend with the idea of Beckham and Robbi Williams as the gay TV couple??

Tuc is hot @ 08/14/2007 at 2:31 pm

Is Tuc Watkins out? I was just about ti give up on Desperate Housewives but now I will be sure to watch. I bet it won’t be that G-rated.

HEY!!!!!! @ 08/14/2007 at 3:04 pm

Way to go!!!

The David Beckham/Robbie Williams rumor sounded a lot more enticing.
These two? Not so much! Yawn! Who cares?

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.

I like Kevin, but sadly I dont watch DH!

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

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.

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.

THIS IS SOMETHING NEW

thats awesome!! that might just bring Desperate Housewives back to being the top show and Might make me start watching again..because I gave up on the show in the middle of last season becuz of the stupidity.

Some of you people suck! DH is still a damn good show! LOL

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

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

it is not the first gay couple on tv!
