DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star MARCIA CROSS is urging the show's scriptwriters to integrate the characters' storylines more, because she misses spending time with her co-stars.

Season two of the hit ABC show has recently started in America and audiences have seen the women of Wisteria Lane - Felicity Huffman's LYNETTE, Eva Longoria's Gabrielle, Teri Hatcher's SUSAN, Nicollette Sheridan's EDIE and Alfre Woodard's BETTY involved in separate storylines, which rarely cross paths.

Cross, who plays the newly-widowed BREE, says, "I think it would be nice if we start spending a little more time together.

"I think in the first few episodes (of the second season) we weren't, but that wasn't anything sort of set in stone, it's just sometimes things just evolve."
