Burnett Visits Desperate Housewives

Subscribe to Carol Burnett alerts

Legendary star Carol Burnett will leave her comedic roots behind when she appears on Desperate Housewives as ELEANOR MASON, the cold stepmother of BREE VAN DE CAMP (MARCIA CROSS). The 72-year-old comedienne agreed to appear on the show on one condition - she could play a mean character. She says, "I thought this would be a hoot. I'm a soap opera fan and this is a very campy soap." Series creator MARC CHERRY is thrilled Burnett agreed to appear on the show saying, "I learned how to be funny from Carol Burnett. "Eleanor took over after Bree's mother was killed when Bree was a child. She's a very tightly wound, proper lady." Burnett will appear in an episode due to air in America on 9 April (06). The star is only scheduled to appear in one episode, but may return next season.
