'Housewives': Carol Burnett joins the cast


9737__burnett_lYou thought Bree (Marcia Cross) had a handful when she had to deal with Rex’s mom (Shirley Knight) at the beginning of this season of Desperate Housewives? Wait til her own bitchy stepmom arrives on the April 9 episode, in the form of Carol Burnett. USA Today has the skinny on Burnett’s character, as well as lots of other spoilers about how the season is going to wind down. Maybe you’d better sit down for this and have a glass or or 12 of Chardonnay.
