Kathryn Joosten, "Mrs Landingham", Wins Creative Arts Emmy For "Housewives"

Official Press Release:
"Among the acting winners, only Joosten, who is also a governor in the Television Academy’s Performers Peer Group, was on hand to accept her award. In an amusing and touching speech, Joosten said she would like to exhume her late ex-husband, who was not supportive of her decision to pursue a professional acting career in middle age, to show him the extent to which her efforts had borne fruit. She then thanked her two sons for their unflagging love and encouragement. Backstage, Joosten told reporters that winning an Emmy was “the top of the mountain. I started out twenty-some years ago in community theater; I played a stripper in Gypsy. So to be here with this [award] is the ultimate.”
