Desperate Housewives

I have seen on YouTube the "Desperate Housewives" scene currently causing an uproar in the Filipino and Filipino-American communities. I won't add to the downpour of angry comments. I'm too tired and sick (physically). I do have to say, though, that the "racial slur" notwithstanding, it was actually a very funny scene.

Nevertheless, I'm signature #56732.

The person who signed before me wisely said: "ABC needs to apology to all Filipinos." I absolutely agree, but probably in a more grammatically correct way.

Here's the link, for those inclined:

Did you see the Time Magazine article on this?

I can't believe that actors don't get to have a say over the script that's handed to them. What does this episode tell us about Teri Hatcher? (Remember the Vanity Fair cover story on the Desperate Housewives after Season 1, where the other cast members complained that Teri is giving them the diva attitude? If she can have a say on the photoshoot and the outfits, why not a script?)

For her sake I hope she's lucky enough not to run into a Filipino medical professional.
