About This Quiz

Children who grow up in the suburbs may dream of escaping them, but many of us dream of absconding to the suburbs ourselves! There's something wonderfully comforting about the idea of living on a safe, quiet street where all the houses look the same and the lawns are always mowed. 

Of course, those pretty McMansion facades often hide a darker reality. Certainly that's what gave the show "Desperate Housewives" such a delicious comedic flair. Affairs, murders, blackmail... Wisteria Lane had more crime and intrigue than most people experience in a lifetime! Not to mention the natural and man-made disasters that plagued Wisteria Lane's residents, which included tornadoes, fires, plane crashes and riots.

Nevertheless, almost everyone has fantasized about what it would be like to live life as a Desperate Housewife. Which character do you think you'd be like? Would you be the church-going Martha Stewart type, like Bree? A warm-hearted but klutzy single mom, like Susan? A dissatisfied career woman turned stay-at-home mom, like Lynette? Or a classic trophy wife, like Gabrielle?

In this quiz, we'll ask you to plan an ideal suburban life, in order to reveal your true Desperate Housewife identity. Ready to find out if you're a Bree, Susan, Lynette or Gabrielle? Put on your cutest pair of yoga pants and let's get quizzin'!
