Bottoms Up, Bree

Bottoms Up, Bree:

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."

--I'll be interested to see how this plays out. Since Marcia and Felicity are the only ones who can truly act on that show (ok, you might be able to sway me on occasion with regard to Teri, but Eva is terrible, and that's that), I think this can be done really well.

1 Sounds good to me. I could see Bree becoming an alcholic considering the year she has had and the fact that she is so tightly wound.

2 Oh yay. Now I won't be the only suburban chick drinking on Sunday nights.
