Wiksteria Lane

You're here, you're queer...and I'm used to it.
Bree Van de Kamp

Andrew Van de Kamp, Bree and Rex's son, is just as clever, stubborn, and wicked as his mother, which perhaps is why they’ve always had such a stormy relationship.

Along the way, Andrew ran down Carlos Solis's mother in a drunk driving accident but was never punished. And, Bree absolutely flipped out when he told her that he is gay. Things got so bad between them that he even seduced Bree’s boyfriend, which led to her abandoning him on the side of the road.

After living on the streets and turning to tricks, Andrew returned to Wisteria Lane and gradually became close with Bree again. Clearly, he’s no saint. But, over time, Andrew has grown from a spoiled child of privilege into a talented young man whose keen business sense has helped his mother build her catering empire. But, with so much history between these two, tension could flare up at any moment.
