(Gay Ashton Kutcher. Wouldn't that be nice?)
Anyway, what I mean is, I think we're all being Punk'd.
According to the TransWorldNews report...
"Soccer star David Beckham and British singer Robbie Williams is reportedly set to star in the hit show 'Desperate Housewives' as a gay couple. The show’s creator, Marc Cherry, said he wanted to add a gay couple to the script to 'spice things up.'"
Marc Cherry is quoted in the article as saying...
"David and Robbie are perfect to star as the new neighbors’ best friends; the gorgeous, eccentric couple flown over from Blighty (Britain).
"We haven’t has that kind of wow for the wives since Jesse Metcalf left and we want it to cause such a stir when they turn out to be together.
"David’s keen, but though the obvious choice was to work with Tom Cruise, we wanted someone who matches him in height and well, Britishness, so Robbie is the one."
Again, I would love for this to be true. I would love it so hard. But...
I can hear Marc Cherry laughing at us right now as we salivate over the details.
Maybe - - maybe! - - Robbie Williams will be one of the gay "housewives" on DP this season, but y'all...
David Beckham moved to L.A. to play soccer AND to appear in an ABC dramedy?!?!
I'm gullible and I might - - might! - - have believed it, if Mr. Cherry hadn't used two little words. Two little words gave him away.
Saying "Tom Cruise" these days is an easy way to get a laugh. Like using the word "pleather." I just makes people giggle.
And gives people a little clue that you're pulling their leg.
Special Note to Shirley Heezegay: I SINCERELY hope that I'm wrong about this whole story being a red herring.
And to answer your question of "Who will be the bottom?" - - Beckham or Williams - - I think I was wrong when I said Robbie would probably play the bottom.
I mean, even though Beckham is flagging left in this picture, doesn't that pose just say "Receiver?"
Hell, if he thinks that makes him a top, that is fine with me! I just wanna be in there somewhere.
