Emmy Award-winning Kathryn Joosten, who, in a devastating case of life imitating art had us choking back tears during her character Karen McKluskey's death scene on the series finale of Desperate Housewives, passed away in real life yesterday after losing her battle with lung cancer at the age of 72.
According to her rep, the actress - who was also known for her roles on The West Wing and Scrubs - was surrounded by her family in her Westlake Village home in El Lay at the time of her passing.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of her relatives, fans, and loved ones during this time.
May she R.I.P.

As we mentioned earlier this week, Aaron Sorkin's working on TV show about and now there's more deets!
The screenwriter said in an interview with BBC:
"I love television, and I’m going to be doing another television series as well, this time on HBO, and it’s going to take place behind-the-scenes at a nightly cable news show. It’s going to be happening soon. I’ve written the pilot episode and we’re casting it right now."
As for research, Sorkin's gone straight to the source, adding:
"I’ve spent some time at CNN…with Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, Fox News, I’ve spent some time being a fly on the wall at those shows…What the hope is, is that I can bring the same kind of idealism and romanticism that made government seem sexy on The West Wing, and I can bring it to the news and journalism, which in America is held in at least as much contempt as government."
