THE DARKEST DAY ON WISTERIA LANE
There was something wicked on Wisteria Lane, and it was tied to the mysterious backdrop of Mary Alice Young’s suicide. While all signs pointed to her husband Paul as a murderer during that captivating debut season of Desperate Housewives, viewers would eventually learn that Mary Alice (played by Brenda Strong) had blood on her hands – she killed Diedre, the birth mother of her adopted son, Zach, during a scuffle when the woman attempted to reclaim the boy. Mary Alice and Paul dismembered the body, hid the body in Zach’s toy chest, and buried it – but it would eventually come back to haunt them. It’s also the storyline that launched the series, and one fan now has a unique opportunity to own a pivotal piece of Desperate Housewives history. The toy chest that was used to conceal the killing is now available to the top bidder at VIP Fan Auctions. The prop was most recently featured on-screen in a Season 8 flashback, and you can click here to see photos and details about the unique piece of Desperate Housewives history. The auction ends soon, so place your bid today!
