Brenda STRONG (Mary Alice Young)
Her neighbors attended her funeral in the first episode, so while other characters maybe dispatched this season, "the good aews is that they can't kill me!" says Brenda Strong, 45, Although she doesn't log much screen time, playing the show's omniscient narrator has its perks. "Marc Cherry said to me; 'You have more lines than anybody else on the show,' " she says. "I make a nice living playing dead." Strong also has a bona fide backup career, just in case. She and husband Tom Henri, the parents of a 10-year-old son, own a yoga studio in LA "I've entertained the idea of having a private yoga party with all the girls," says Strong, "but I haven't yet because all our schedules have been so insane."
