Rumor Patrol: Will Susan Lucci Get Desperate?

On paper it makes perfect sense: Soon-to-be-unemployed All My Children icon Susan Lucci takes her super-soap act to primetime on ABC’s Desperate Housewives.

There’s just one problem: It’s not true.

A source close to Housewives tells TVLine that “there’s no truth at all” to a report in New York Post‘s Page Six column that claims the Emmy winner will join the cast next season, adding that the idea has not even been discussed.

Of course, that’s not to say it couldn’t happen. If ABC at some point decides to transplant Lucci from Pine Valley to Wisteria Lane, they should do it right and have her play Erica Kane. Think of the possibilities — and then share ’em in the comments!
