It's been a long year for the "Desperate Housewives." They've handled crime, breakups, alcoholism and a complete breakdown of their friendship. It's Christmas time, the season of joy, but there's no sign of good will on Wysteria Lane. The girls won't be doing any neighborhood caroling together either. When they celebrate the season, each will sing her own song.
Lynette: "Please Come Home for Christmas"
Lynette and Tom were the perfect couple but not any more. Tom moved on to a new love, leaving Lynette utterly alone. Except for the kids, of course. She's still got plenty of room in her heart for the man who left her behind. If she sings the original gritty, bluesy Charles Brown version of "Please Come Home for Christmas" she might just win him back.Susan: "Blue Christmas"
Susan's an acclaimed artist in Fairview. Now she's leaving for the Big Apple and a much bigger art career. She's got the talent and a sponsor to foot the bill, but will she leave her sweet hubby, Mike, behind? She might just do that; and if she does, she'll be all alone and singing "Blue Christmas" just like Elvis.
Gaby: "Santa Claus Is Watching You"
Gaby's husband killed her evil stepfather. Her friends helped her bury his body in the woods. She thought they'd get away with it, but singer Ray Stevens could have told her " Santa Claus is Watching You ." (He's everywhere!) In Gaby's case, Santa was Detective Chuck. He finally put the pieces together and knew she'd been naughty. Gaby, Carlos and friends could have been prison bound had the good detective not become road kill late one night. But even if he bought the big one, another cop might take his place. Gaby better watch out!
Renee: "Give Love on Christmas Day"
Renee had the hots for Ben from the very first moment she saw him. She finally got her hooks into him. They've been playing footsies ever since, but will it last through Christmas day? If that's what Renee wants, she'd better put on her sexiest holiday dress, stand on Ben's front porch and sing the Jackson Five's "Give Love on Christmas Day." He'll be sure to get the message.
Bree: "Silent Night" or...
Bree dumped Detective Chuck because cops and criminals just don't mix. She lost her friends and her family abandoned her long ago. When viewers last saw her she'd returned to the bottle big time and rented a cheap motel room to blow her brains out. A verse of "Silent Night" would fit the occasion perfectly, or she might try a round of "I'm Getting Nuttin' for Christmas" while she decides to pull or not to pull the trigger.
