Dowd appears Desperate
NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST TO APPEAR ON DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
December 28, 2005 (Story Developing)
Maureen Dowd, opinionated columnist and SINGLE, will be making several appearances on ABC's hit show, Desperate Housewives (Sunday, 9:00pm).
MISS Dowd, will be playing the part of Hagatha Eazy, an aging spin stress who's meaning in life is slipping away. Freightened and desperate for love, she bounces from one bed to the next as her biological clock's snooze alarm is pushed way beyond it's limit. Maureen said of her time on the show...
"I love this part, I get to be a bitchy old crone who's sole purpose is to go around criticizing everyone else's life because mine is so desperately inadequate. A real stretch for me, but that's what makes it so much fun!"
Teri Hatcher, who plays the part of Susan Mayer on the show, was quite impressed with Miss Dowd's acting ability.
"She's amazing, really, she had absolutely No training yet from day one when she set foot on stage she was "In character" and stayed that way throughout. I real pro!"
Show producer Liz Gratchen was equally impressed, "We were looking for a real angry bitch, someone who could play the part over the top and still come off as credible. It's not often you find someone who is so well suited for their part. Once we got passed the 'incident' everything was smooth sailing."
The "incident" Gratchen referred to took place on the 2nd day of shooting when Miss Dowd showed up disheveled and late for work after a night of debauchery with at least 5 male members of the stage crew.
