Julie Benz's stay on Wisteria Lane is extended

Benz Former "Dexter" star Julie Benz will be staying on Wisteria Lane just a little bit longer.

Benz originally signed on for a three-episode arc as a stripper with a heart of gold and a passion to educate herself. In an exclusive interview with our pals over at Zap2it, "Desperate Housewives" executive producer Bob Daily said they were planning to keep her on the Lane for additional episodes.

"We've been enjoying [Benz] so much," Daily said. "We've extended her at least one more episode and possibly more beyond that."

Last week Robin (Benz) was inspired by Susan (Teri Hatcher) to stop stripping and pursue her dreams. After being fired for her past while working for Susan, she convinced Mike it would be a good idea to house the former stripper. But in sneak peeks of the episode it doesn't seem like she'll be a house guest for too long before making the moves on another housewife, the always unstable Katherine (Dana Delany, who'll soon reunite with her former Wisteria Lane husband, Nathan Fillion on his ABC series "Castle").

"Robin will be getting into a friendship," Daily said. "That maybe turns into more than a friendship with Katherine. Katherine has had kind of a rough year and I think she's open to new experiences. She's had a rough time with men. It's going to be a sort of twisty and turny conflicted relationship for her, I think."

Is this signs that they are ditching the "Katherine is a crazy psycho" plot? Maybe this is just the storyline needed to spice up things on the Lane.

This is a silly story line,but I guess the entire program is slipping,time to cancel.

Erica is on drugs or crazy. Why the hell would ABC cancel their best performing show in the ratings

And this storyline is awesome

"Is this signs that they are ditching the "Katherine is a crazy psycho" plot?"

Um, have you been watching the show? Because she already went to the looney bin and recovered.

Benz now has the largest pair of fake honkers on the show. So I guess that's something.
