Report: ‘Desperate’ Bree to Hit Bottle

December 27, 2005

NEW YORK (AP) _ Pour another glass of wine for Bree on ``Desperate Housewives.″ Better yet, just hand over the bottle.

The ABC show’s creator, Marc Cherry, says Marcia Cross’ character _ who became a widow following her husband’s poisoning and then watched her flipped-out fiance die of an overdose _ isn’t reacting well to changes.

``We’re starting her descent into alcoholism,″ Cherry tells TV Guide in its Jan. 2 issue, on newsstands Thursday. He says there are some alcohol-fueled moments with her fellow housewives where ``it gets pretty ugly.″

It shouldn’t entirely be a surprise for fans of the show, since Cherry says he’s been hinting about Bree’s future ever since ``Desperate Housewives″ began a year ago.

``When Bree has tension, she grabs a glass,″ he says. ``Chart it back and you’ll see so many moments where she just goes for the wine.″

``Desperate Housewives″ airs on Sunday nights (9 p.m. EST).
