Kathryn Joosten has been like a TV grandmother to me ever since I first saw her as Mrs. Landingham on Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing. So I can't tell you how unbelievably saddened I was to learn that she is now fighting a second bout of cancer, a disease that took my own grandmother and my mother.
Joosten's spirit and dry, sardonic delivery has always gotten laughs and won over audiences and voting academies alike. This season on Desperate Housewives, Joosten finally gets a real storyline-- and a man of her own-- which can only mean one thing: the show is prepping her for another Emmy win. Let's hope she can kick that cancer in the @$$ once again!
