Bobby ChinnSizzling sirens

Season six of Desperate Housewives airs every Friday to Sunday at 10 pm on Star World. The latest and the most exciting season in the US, the season promises to be a pot boiler of drama with the introduction of an all new housewife, a painful pregnancy, a pesky niece, a hidden affair and probably another walk down the aisle for one of Wisteria Lane’s ladies.

This season is bound to leave you thinking why you should never underestimate a housewife as more shockingly delicious secrets and revelations await the circle of girlfriends. Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Tom Scavo (Doug Savant) face the challenging realities of yet another pregnancy; Bree Hodge (Marcia Cross) struggles to break free of Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) and her inhibitions; and Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Parker) is put to the test by husband Carlos' (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) teenaged niece now in their care. A new housewife moves to Wisteria Lane with her family, bringing along secrets shrouded in mystery. Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo) and her husband, Nick (Jeffrey Nordling), have moved into the perfect house in the perfect neighbourhood. But when their peculiar son, Danny (Beau Mirchoff), causes a stir, they risk the threat of revealing their shameful past.
