Dana Delaney and Julie Benz to share a kiss – and maybe more – on “Desperate Housewives”
Dana Delaney’s character of Katherine Mayfar has had some rotten luck with men including Mike Delfino (James Denton) who ditched her to get back together with his true love, Susan (Teri Hatcher).
Enter Susan’s new stripper friend Robin played by the terrific Julie Benz who was recently killed off of Dexter.
Says Benz of her role: “Everyone assumed I was going to come in and break up someone’s marriage, but there’s a while different twist.”
According to TV Guide, that twist is this: Robin and Katherine will share an impromptu kiss that develops into something real. Delaney compares Katherine’s realization to the real-life case of actress Meredith Baxter: “For a woman in her fifties to make this announcement to her community is huge. I hope it sticks.”
Benz says she will appear in at least four episodes with an option for more and jokes: “I’m bribing the writers with cupcakes.”
