When Brenda Strong ended her run as the voice of "Desperate Housewives" this year, she had to concentrate on not crying through her final lines.
"I sobbed," Strong recalled of saying good-bye to her character, Mary Alice. "It's hard to talk when you're crying, so I had to keep it together long enough to get through my final voice-over. Mary Alice has been such a magical part of my life, and it's such a unique role. I'm not a voice-over artist traditionally, so to have the opportunity to use one aspect of my instrument so specifically has been a challenge and a gift."

Don Mischer is back to executive produce the show for the 12th time (yep, that's a record).
