“Marc Cherry gave me the words and places to say them, that earned me two Emmys. I will be forever grateful. I will remember the beauty of the actual set, the directors, and the whole crew was so charming and delightful to work with every day. In my heart, I am most thankful for their kindness and support while I was going through my successful lung cancer treatments." Actress Kathryn Joosten on the news Desperate Housewives is to end after its next season.
