From Dundler Mifflin to Wisteria Lane...
Linda Purl, who recently appeared on The Office as Pam's mother (and Michael's lover... ewww!), Helene Beesly, will soon appear on Desperate Housewives as another memorable mom.
As first reported by Fancast.com, the actress will guest star on an episode this spring. She'll play the woman who had an affair with Rex Van De Kamp a long time ago... bearing him a son named Sam (played by Sam Page).
Sam initially surfaced a few weeks back, detailing his connection to Rexâs widow Bree, who quickly took him in.
Desperate Housewives returns with new episodes on April 18.
