Redhead of the Week

Marcia Anne Cross, 46, is the Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated Bree Hodge on the hit TV show, Desperate Housewives. Forty-six sounds young to my boss, The Famous Author, but Marcia would be out of my normal range of dating prospects. I say normally, because Marcia definitely has what it takes to overcome such prejudice.

Marcia started her television career on the hit TV soap, The Edge of Night, in 1984. A graduate of the Juilliard School in New York, she also earned a master's degree in psychology at LA's Antioch University. Prior to Desperate Housewives, Marcia starred on the critically-acclaimed series, Everwood. She is also well known for her portrayal of the mentally unbalanced Dr. Kimberly Shaw on Melrose Place, whom she played from 1992 to 1997.

In June 2005, Marcia married Tom Mahoney, a stockbroker (gasp!) whom she'd been dating for six months, in front of 200 guests at the Church of Our Savior Episcopal Parish in San Gabriel, California.

TFA says he graduated from San Gabriel High School, about two miles from that church. Wonder why we weren't invited? Maybe Tom works for Merrill Lynch.

Thanks to Wikipedia, Marcia, and the former Mayor of San Gabriel, John Tapp
