Desperate Housewife; Desperate Actress

Before, when you ask me if I love watching Desperate Housewives, my answer is a big YES, period. I love that ABC show together with Grey's Anatomy and Justice. But since the great outrage of Filipinos with one of the recent DH episode's discriminating remarks against our medical professionals, I now answer the abovementioned question not anymore with a big YES and period but with this kind of "yes", and with a but. Below is an email of a Filipino expat detailing the episode of DH that he had watched:

"The scene entailed Teri Hatcher's character (Susan) at a hospital, being told by her gynecologist that she might be hitting menopause. Susan replied, "Can I just check those diplomas because I just want to make sure that they are not from some med school in the Philippines ." If you go to, you watch the full episode and witness the scene at about 18:50 minutes into the episode."

The remark is indeed very baseless, senseless and of course, very discriminating. Millions of Filipinos are taking care of millions of sick, disabled and elderly Americans most them experiencing the great pain of leaving their families behind for greener pastures as they say. They take care of people they do not even know because of the great financial rewards, but they cant even take care and cure of their families' illnesses and sickness.

With the strict rules and qualifications that the US is implementing to all their foreign workers, I think the process alone of going through the eye of a needle just to get a working visa is already enough proof of our workers' qualifications and competence abroad.

Here in the Philippines of course, I can say that there are rooms for doubts when it comes to competence. With leakages in the boards exams and insiders at PRC, the public is not yet safe from medical malpractices of both competent and incompetent doctors and medical professionals.

I would still watch Desperate Housewives...and as our La Salle Brother-mentor in high school usually tell us; "Think and judge everything as a Christian." Well, I think Teri Hatcher (Susan) only made such discriminating, senseless and baseless remark because basically she is "desperate". Can't we all get it, she is a desperate housewife anyway! Any desperate housewife being told by her doctor that she is having her menopause (a woman's greatest enemy, ehehe) would be screeming like freak and would be thinking out of reason, like a running wheel without any axle.

And I think I can make big bucks with my ingenious suggestion of making Desperate Housewife a reality show instead with Teri as the lead star in the first season. Desperate Housewife: Teri Hatcher Reality Show.

Thinnnkkk...Teri is desperate housewife, desperate thinker, desperate actress, ehehehe!
