"Let Me Entertain You" is the 139th episode of the ABC television series, Desperate Housewives. It is the fifth episode of the show's seventh season and was broadcast on October 24, 2010.[1]


The mysterious man from the previous episode, who had the poster revealing Susan's secret as a worker on the website "Va Va Va Broom", is Paul. It is all part of an elaborate plot to blackmail Susan into selling him her house. The mystery as to why Paul Young is buying up most of the houses on Wisteria Lane continues to deepen.

Meanwhile, Renee is happy that her marriage is over and that her settlement is lucrative. Renee and Gaby share secrets. Renee tells Gaby that she "renegotiated" the terms of her divorce settlement by sleeping with her ex-husband Doug's divorce lawyer and Gaby says that she had a nose job. Renee blabs about it to Bree and Lynette later after she and Gaby get into a small fight. As revenge, Gaby reveals Renee's secret to Doug, who has arrived in Fairview to reconcile with Renee. After a huge fight between Renee and Gaby, they apologize to each other and Renee decides to follow through with the divorce.

Bree is exhausted after many all-nighters of sex with Keith's unrestricted libido. Later, he confesses that he was only trying to impress her (because Bree seemed too conservative and sophisticated for him) after Bree reveals she can't keep up with him. They tell each other that they like each other the way they are.

Tom asks his mother, Allison, as a nanny to take care of the baby. After a big argument, Lynette fires her mother-in-law, but Tom overrules her, telling her that she is going to stay. After Lynette and Allison's talk, Tom's mother shows symptoms of dementia to Penny, unknown to Lynette and Tom.
