Last week, words were spreading that "Desperate Housewives" could get a spin-off with Lily Tomlin and Kathryn Joonsten as the lead cast. In the development of the story, NY Post reported that the news gathered so many great response from the public that the execs are expected to consider making it true.

It is said in the report that Lily and Kathryn will reprise their "Desperate" roles as sisters Roberta and Karen McCluskey respectively. The idea is to have them snooping and solving light crime mysteries in another neighborhood outside Wisteria Lane. "(Creator Marc) Cherry loves the idea of a mystery series," said a source close to the project.

Cherry is expected to discuss the matter when he has a meeting with the staff writers later this June for the show's 6th season.

Just before the season 5 finale on Sunday, May 17, recurring cast Neal McDonough threw the idea of a spin-off by asking the audience of "The View" on who would like to see the show getting a spin-off. Many raised their hands and since then, Kathryn's e-mail reportedly was so flooded that it was shut down.

These two are great together, and a show built around them would be fun. I would be sad to see them leave "Housewives" though. Without Edie AND Karen, the street will not be as spicy.
