10 Reasons to Love Desperate Housewives


I remember sitting at home, waiting for Desperate Housewives to start each week, dying to find out what crazy and ridiculous thing would happen next. I recently started watching it again and am flippin’ loving it. I forgot how bloody amazing it is! In case you need any more persuasion to get to your nearest shop and purchase the box set, I thought I’d share 10 reasons why you should, right this second!

❤  The Friendship – Doesn’t every girl dream of having a friendship like Susan, Bree, Lynette and Gabby? I mean sure, they’re slightly superficial and they definitely have their back stabbing moments, but they’re always there for each other. It’s the ultimate friendship goal (after SATC of course) and I for one need that in my life!

❤  The Drama – One thing you can guarantee in Desperate Housewives is an absolute shitload of drama in every single episode. That’s right, not even every season, every single episode is dramatic AF. I promise you won’t be able to tear your eyes away from the screen for a second, even after already watching it one.

❤  A Slice of Unreality – Desperate Housewives if just so far away from the norm of the everyday working gal. It’s rich, luxurious and everything our life (or mine at least) isn’t. But let’s face it, if we’re going to watch something, that’s exactly what we want. A little slice of unreality to get completely lost in.

❤  Beautiful Houses – Does anybody else see a beautiful little American street on TV and pick out the house you will live in one day and mentally plan out each room? No, only me? Well anyway, Wisteria Lane, while it may not be real, is exactly the dream home I have built up in my head. One day guys, one day…

❤  The Hot Men – I mean, from Season 1 you’ve got John the gardener, Carlos and Mike. I mean, you’re basically spoilt for choice from day 1 and the pick doesn’t get any slimmer as the seasons go on. My choice is always Mike though!

❤  Susan – I mean, she’s just the every girl isn’t (minus, you know, being a rich and not having to work) She’s the girl who falls over, gets dumped, cries, says the wrong thing, is vulnerable but fiercely passionate and strong. She’s all of us! How many times have you watched something go wrong for her and get that complete feeling of understanding because it’s happened to you, or cringe as she says something embarrassing because you’re thinking back to the time that you said the exact same thing?

❤  All the Laughs – You’ll never find a more hilarious show (apart from Friends, because we all know I’m the biggest Friends fan) but seriously, it’s hilarious. But on the flip, there are also moments of sadness, anger, frustration, shock, you will basically experience every emotion you ever thought possible while watching Desperate Housewives. It will have you laughing one moment and sobbing the next. How could you possibly not love something that can arouse such emotions?

❤  Because Feminism – The ladies rival the SATC girls with all they have. They may be housewives, but they are strong AF and could basically rule the world and everybody knows it. If you ever need a taste of why women are so strong or a little source of motivation, then Desperate Housewives is the place to look.

❤  Life Lessons – Amongst all of the unrealistic happening of Wisteria Lane, there are many realistic too. If you haven’t seen it I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but each character goes through many ups and downs over the course of the 10 seasons and it’s highly likely that we will all experience some of them in our life. There are things to be learnt from the housewives and how they handle their problems. Ok, a lot of the learning is what not to do, but there is also plenty of kick ass attitudes.

❤  Motivation – One thing Desperate Housewives will do is motivate your ass. That is after you’ve sat on it solidly for 2 weeks binge-watching every episode. Those girls are primped and preened, career girls (some), charity workers, parents and the many other things that a woman can be all in one go. Whether you want Gabby’s house? Want to cook like Bree? Be a better parents or just look hot AF, you can guarantee that watching 10 seasons of Desperate Housewives will have you wearing your superwoman leotard, Xena sword in hand ready to slay anybody who gets in the way of your goals.
