The One with Desperate Housewives

Congratulations! You are Gabrielle Solis, the
ex-model with everything she's every wanted a
rich husband, a big house and John, the
17-year-old gardener.

Which Desperate Housewife are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

I am so happy to be posting about something other than hurricanes for a change. In honor of the Desperate Housewives season premiere tonight, I decided this quiz might be fun. I was very surprised by my results, because I don't relate to this character at all. I'm not narcissistic, and I think cheating on your spouse is deplorable, even if it is with a hot younger man, I mean boy. The only reason I can think of for these results is that I said I wasn't ready for children, but Gabrielle doesn't want children at all. I do eventually, and I even have names. Caroline (Carly), for a girl, and Jackson(Jacks), for a boy. Yes, those are character names from General Hospital, but Caroline is also a family name and Jackson goes very well with it. Very southern, like me.

Back to my results. I don't even like this actress, Eva Longoria. As soon as she hit it big, she left her husband Tyler Christopher who plays Nikolas on GH. Last fall she was spotted with many different men, and their divorce wasn't final until January. Yes, I've mentioned General Hospital again. I can't help it. I've watched it since I was like 8 or so. I listen to it while I'm working. In fact, it's the only time you're guaranteed to find me at my scope. Then, before I go to sleep, I watch it on SoapNet. There are things that happen that you don't catch in the audio. I do realize that I have no idea what went on in Eva and Christopher's relationship, and my dislike is unfounded. However, I dislike Tom Cruise for similar reasons, and I'm very stubborn.
I think I am more like a mix of Bree Van de Kamp and Susan Mayer. I have Susan's insecurities, some of her klutziness, and my wardrobe most resembles her's. I also have some of Bree's need for perfection, some OCD symptoms, and her hair color. My hair stylist even calls me her Bree.

I knew I was going to like this show last season just from the ads before it started. It is outrageous, campy, and just plain fun to watch. If you aren't a fan already, check it out tonight. It airs on ABC at 8CT.

Congratulations! You are Susan Mayer, the divorcee and single mom who will go to extraordinary lengths for love.

I am thrilled I figured I would be the housewife with all the kids. But I love Susan and other than the divorced part and the part where her curiosity always gets her in trouble, I can see the similarities.

I'd be the mysterious Fuzzball that's seen in the background occasionally in desperate housewives ;)

Michele sent me this time, Lish. After a few near misses, I might add. And speaking of near misses--I'm glad y'all ducked Rita.

I've never seen Desperate Housewives so I can't relate. The big show for me tonight is West Wing though the new season of Cold Case starts tonight also, I think. I watch those two as well as 60 Minutes, Lish.

Can't wait for the Desperate Housewives premier. I didn't take the quiz but I am definately a Susan. Michele sent me,

A-Dub said...

Similar to other folks who have posted here, I cant wait for the premire tonight.

I want to take that quiz you posted, but it wont load!

Michele sent me!

Lish said...

I had trouble getting this quiz to load myself earlier today. It is not a problem with my link but the site itself, Quizzilla. There is another test at the Desperate Housewives link at ABC. I got the same results on that quiz aas well. WTF? I am so not a Gabrielle?

Glad I found your blog! I love the show. I've just been wasting time reading blogs while I'm waiting for the show to come on! Five minutes to go!

Heather said...

I love Desperate Housewives! Just watched it and was dying when Bree lifted Rex up and changed his tie!

Heather said...

BTW, I was Lynette!

Jamie Dawn said...

I'm a Desperate Housewives fan too. I watched the season opener tonight, and I'm hooked all over again. I am most like Bree. I love to be organized and I love to cook.

CT said...

damn goose, those chics are hot!!!!

>|' ; '| said...

i hope that u r all right ... i hope tht hurricane hasnt harmed ne one there.

War Eagle said...

Susan is my favorite. She seems the most normal of the group.

Becky said...

I was a Lynette, though I wasn't surprised in the least except that I don't even know if I want kids and certainly wouldn't have four.

Even though I would never want her for a mother, Bree's character gives me the most entertainment on the show. Susan frustrates me after a period b/c how could someone be such a constant glutton for punishment and always jump to conclusions?

And, I'm jealous of your Bree-colored hair.

Sandy said...

Is it a sin that I've not actually ever watched Desperate Housewives? I am so uncool, I know. :)

Btw, Hello, Michele sent me! I'm the comment after yours in the most recent game.

Well Lish, I ended up a Susan...surprised?... I was hoping to be the cut-throat career woman turned mom... rather than myself which is a klutz turned mom. I would have pegged you as a Bree just for the Martha Stewart/cleaning aspect. I played around with the quiz and can tell you the pivot questions!!! (kids are napping and yes...I do have a little time on my hands, which should be spent cleaning, but ha ha..I am such a rebel).

Enjoy reading your blog!!!

Gina said...

Lish - I'm a Lynnette... I totally thought I would be a Bree too. I guess it is a good thing since Lynnette is Jason's fav. Miss you.

Love this show! I'm Gabrielle too.
