Desperate Housewives

post #1 of 130
Thread Starter 
OK... A little embarrassed to admit but I have a few obsessions- this being one. I also always look into spoilers of my favorite shows because I like to ruin things for myself
ANYWAY... Bree's daughter, Danielle, is going to have a baby in a few episodes and it's going to be a boy. Circumcision will be debated. To say anymore about it, I would have to get into the whole backstory and it is SUPER confusing and involved (LOL) but if you're a sometimes watcher (I'm probably the only one here that does watch it haha) then make sure you tune in this season!!
I so hope they don't do it!! From what it seems... it's the bio dad who's against

I bet you anything they will and site that stupid African circ study It would be great if they didnt it would really help get the word out since that is a popular show.

Bree likes things perfect so I think she won't....lets hope so.

Wait, I thought it was Bree that was pregnant? :
I hope they don't do it though... that would be AWESOME seeing as how so many people watch it.

considering how anal bree is, and its going to be "her" kid... i think bree will want it done. in her eyes, i think "perfect" is not going to equal "intact" she likes things neat and tidy and in order, and i'll bet she equates being circ'd with those things.

It may very well go in a more unexpected direction. In the episode before last weeks, Bree was telling Orson that raising Danielle's child was her chance to have a do-over and parent differently. And in last week's episode, her "perfect" status was in question- maybe Bree's going to get all super-crunchy and stop caring about things matching!

OMG Other people here watch DH too??? Yay LOL
No, it isn't Bree that's preg. It's her unmarried daughter. Bree's wearing a fake belly and passing it off as her own- very 50s
I'm pretty sure that it is Bree that wants it done and the bio dad comes up and says no. This is all from spoiler sites so it's never really clear. Some say Orson and Bree disagree, some say the bio dad and whoever. There's talk about a Jewish spin too... and her agreeing to raise the baby Jewish if they'll do it or something.
I do hope she gets super crunchy!!! A homebirth might be a possibility, considering her not-really-pregnant status. Although I'm sure we'll be seeing bottles, since she's not the bio mom. I'll let it slide though since it did show Lynette BFing Penny when she was a baby. But that's OT :-)

Ohhh, ok. I didn't catch that because the only episode I've ever seen was last weeks (?), the one about the pie. LOL

This is a stretch BUT, Eva Longoria is on the show and IF she has any influence maybe we can hope she's against circumcision. Because: She's Latino, from large Latino community in San Antonio, is married to Tony Parker, who was born in France and raised in Belgium, both intact countries. (not a very "French" name though, it it?)

We can hope though, right?

I watch it too. Takes me away from the day and into some crazy neighborhood that makes mine seem "normal," if only for an hour. LOL.

I do hope that they go against it, I'd be bummed if I had to stop watching it. They're in enough hot water after the episode about "Phillipino docs" comment. OT, sorry. I just don't know what direction they're heading. Maybe we should write them and speak up on behlaf on NC?

:

Anyone see tonight's episode? She had the baby...you guessed it. A boy. And in the 'teaser' for next week's episode, a Rabbi? is at her house for some reason (a baby shower maybe?) and she asks him "Oh and while you're here, could you do a bris on my baby?" (or something like that) Guess I won't be watching DH anymore...

Oh and here's the kicker...after the baby was born, Bree said he was "perfect"! Guess not. :

Uggghhhhh....

Another lost opportunity. Most of Hollywood seems to be pro-circ. Unlike the rest of CA.
post #16 of 130
It is not yet known if he will actually be circ'd though.

I mean, I don't have real high hopes for the outcome, but in the spoiler I read, it is supposed to be a debate over if he will or will not be. So don't give up. Even if he does, at the very least hopefully some good anti points will be brought up.

From the spoiler site:

It looks like Danielle will give birth to a boy. Orson and Bree will not see eye to eye about circumcision.

How awful and disappointing.

At least it was a home birth. On the kitchen counter? LOL But it was good to see an emergency home birth and they stayed home, not rushing off to the hospital.

I think there is still hope that the baby gets to stay intact, even though the trailer shows Bree asking a mohel to 'bris' her baby. It looked like maybe she crashed a bris? I don't think a mohel would do that (hopefully).

I don't watch this show but am following this thread. Hopefully it's one of those cases where the preview is totally different to what actually happens.

Homebirth is good. You don't see a lot of those potrayed on TV and natural births often get bad treatment. Although a babies birth is a day (or so). Missing a body part is a lifetime!
