Tuc Watkins discusses “Desperate Housewives”

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: On the red carpet of yesterday’s Daytime Emmy Awards, I was speaking with Susan Lucci when out of the corner of my eye I spotted the tall, dark and handsome Tuc Watkins making his way past me.

I couldn’t break away from a conversation with the queen of daytime but Tuc, so great as David Vickers on One Life to Live and as Bob Hunter on Desperate Housewives, kindly made his way back to me a few minutes later.

I wanted to be sure and check in with Tuc who has been so busy lately with a return to One Life to Live which he juggled with a role in the off-Broadway play White Lies with Betty Buckley, Peter Scolari and others.

It was recently revealed that Tuc has been elevated from recurring status on Housewives to series regular which is great news for his many fans.

“We start up in mid-July,” he said of Housewives. “I was in New York doing a play for awhile, then did One Life to Live. All the timing worked out. Usually the timing works out so that I don’t get to do anything and this worked out perfectly for the first time in 2o years – the schedule worked out great so that I got to do all three. When Desperate Housewives went on hiatus I came to do the play, worked on One Life to Live and got to wear an amazing technicolor dream coat, marry Bo and Nora and things are looking good for me and Dorian to get hitched.”

So what will becoming as series regular under contract mean for his work on Housewives?

“They’re going to expand the role a little bit, they’ve made a commitment for more appearances. I think we can look forward to seeing more of Bob and Lee’s storyline hopefully.”

In the season finale, Lee (Kevin Rahm) had left Bob and while Tuc could not say for sure whether the two reunite, he did say: “I sure hope so. Bob without Lee is like eggs without bacon, like Ernie without Bert.”
