The mysterious firing of actor Page Kennedy, who plays the mysterious creepy guy locked in the basement on Desperate Housewives, was vaguely explained last week only as "improper conduct." Well, leave it to the National Enquirer to dig up the desperate dirt.
Alan Smith writes in the Enquirer that the 28-year-old actor who had just landed his big break on the hugely popular TV series was fired and escorted from the set after he exposing himself to two female crew members. Smith reported:
The first incident allegedly happened when a young female assistant was sent to summon him for a scene. A set insider said: "He opened his door and was standing there with his private parts hanging out of his shorts. Kennedy then allegedly made a sexually charged remark. A few days later, on October 28, Kennedy allegedly flashed to a female assistant director.
"She cursed at Page and reported it to the main producers," said the source. "After word got out, the first girl admitted the same thing had happened to her. After an investigation Page was fired."
Another source said: "People are mad because it took nearly a week to fire the guy. But the stars aren't cut up over him leaving." A rep for Kennedy said: "I have no comment. He's not going to talk about it." The role of Caleb is being recast, and Kennedy's final appearance on the show will be Sunday.
