In early February we heard from Julie Benz herself about the on-screen romance she would be participating in on the ABC drama Desperate Housewives … as you may recall, Benz revealed that she would be sparking a love affair with Dana Delany‘s character on the show. Last night, Benz and Delany got down to biz on DH and really heated things up on Wisteria Lane:
Desperate Housewives is set to have its first lesbian relationship. Katherine Mayfair is seduced by former stripper Robin Gallagher in the U.S. show’s new series. The scenes come after a dream sequence in which Katherine, played by actress Dana Delany, is left stunned when new housemate Robin strips off after spilling maple syrup on her bra. Robin, played by Julie Benz, wipes it off with her finger, after which Katherine steps forward and goes to unhook her bra. On this occasion the steamy scenes are simply a dream and Katherine wakes up with a start. But later in the episode the dreams become reality when the pair end up naked together in bed. Benz, who recently joined the show, said filming the scenes was fun. ‘Dana’s a great kisser,’ she said. ‘Joining the cast of Desperate Housewives has been nothing short of amazing. ‘The girls are all so fun to work with and have welcomed me with open arms. I’m so thrilled that there is such a buzz about my character’s relationship with Dana’s. ‘It’s really beautiful and was so fun to shoot.’
I have to admit, I did not watch last night’s ep but I’m SO thrilled that Julie Benz has been given such a prominent guest spot on Desperate Housewives. I’m not sure I believe her role will stand the test of time on the series but thus far, it’s been a pretty meaty role. After the jump, check out a few screencaps from last night’s ep featuring Benz and Delany gettin’ all cozy together — the caps may be spoilery if you’ve not yet watched the ep so be warned …
Julie Benz is the total hotness. While I doubt she’ll become a permanent castmember on the show, I’m happy that she’s there now to spice things up. Did any of y’all DH fans watch the ep last night? Do YOU approve of this hot new storyline?
