Gay neighbors move in on ‘Housewives’

Move over “Desperate Housewives,” and bring on the desperate house-husbands.

“One Life To Live’s” Tuc Watkins has signed up to partner with Kevin Rahm formerly of “Judging Amy,” as Wisteria Lane’s first gay couple.

The recurring roles, according to TV Guide, will find Watkins and Rahm playing a couple who are moving from the big city to a smaller, homelier place. Watkins’ character Bob is more of a “country mouse,” while Rahm’s character Lee is his “bitchy partner,” the mag notes.

Watkins has played the character of David Vickers for years on ABC’s popular “One Life To Live,” most recently turning boy-toy lover of one of the soap’s grand dames, Dorian Lord. He also had a part in 1999’s “The Mummy.”

Rahm played Kyle McCarty from 2001-2004 on “Judging Amy.” He has also had guest parts on popular series including “Friends,” “CSI: NY” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
