Kathryn Joosten has claimed that people can relate to her Desperate Housewives character.

Joosten plays Karen McCluskey in the show and will become a series regular for the upcoming seventh season.

"I'm relatable to every family," she told TV Guide. "Everyone has one McCluskey in their family, but not everyone has a gorgeous Housewife."

Joosten, who recently picked up an Emmy nomination, also explained why she chose to submit the episode of Desperate Housewives where Karen discovers she has cancer.

"[I wanted to show] a juxtaposition between the comedy and the drama," she said.

Desperate Housewives returns for its seventh season on September 26 on ABC.
