Lynette Scavo

We still can't wrap our heads around everything that Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman) has gone through on Desperate Housewives. From breast cancer to almost losing her husband and children to a tornado, and then almost losing her children to a psychotic daughter, we're in awe that Lynette still gets up every day to go to work. She does what it takes to get ahead, even if she ends up dancing on a bar. Granted, she gave up her full-time job to join her husband, Tom, at the Scavo pizzeria. But no matter where Lynette works, she always gives it 110 percent.
