After Gabrielle’s (Eva Longoria) abusive stepfather, Alejandro (Tony Plana), met his demise on “Desperate Housewives,” the girls thought it best to bury the body themselves.
Then, when Detective Chuck Vance (Jonathan Cake) began investigating the murder, he met his own demise — but who killed him? Access Hollywood hit the set for his funeral to get the answers from the ladies of Wisteria Lane themselves.
“Oh my God — this is such a big who done it?’” Eva told Access Hollywood guest correspondent Tim Vincent during an exclusive visit to the show’s set. “Everybody’s doubting everybody at this point. The girls and I — we have a meeting and I think maybe Bree’s a little off, and then somebody thinks maybe it’s Carlos.
“I think maybe it’s Carlos too,” she added, referencing her onscreen husband, played by Ricardo Chavira. “Everybody is just pointing fingers at who we think might have done it.”
A victim of a hit and run, Detective Vance now lies in a casket, captured by Access Hollywood’s cameras on the top secret set of his funeral, filmed on location at a Los Angeles church.
Since the cop was hot on the trail of the “Housewives” — who covered up a murder — they weren’t exactly sorry to see him go.
“I think we vacillate between going, ‘Chuck Vance is dead,’ and, ‘We’re glad that’s over!’” Felicity Huffman, who plays Lynette Scavo on the ABC hit added.
Tune in to “Desperate Housewives” to watch the ladies handle Det. Vance’s funeral when the episode airs on Sunday at 9 PM EST/PST on ABC.
