Best Person Who Fled OC

Toluca Lake resident Marc Hallon Cherry was born 54 years ago in Long Beach; his family later relocated briefly in Oklahoma, but a job transfer for his accountant father, Truman Cherry, had the brood settling in Orange County. Marc, who graduated from Troy High School in Fullerton, later wrote alongside Mitch Hurwitz on NBC's The Golden Girls. Years after creating ABC's long-running Desperate Housewives, Cherry appeared as himself—and the target of a protest by George Michael Bluth's Christian fundamentalist girlfriend Ann—on Hurwitz's Arrested Development. Having once described himself as a “somewhat conservative, gay Republican,” Cherry accepted the Log Cabin Republicans' 2006 American Visibility Award at a Hollywood dinner, where the Courage to Lead Award went to then-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. It could not be confirmed at press time that the Governator's infamous extramarital affair inspired Cherry's current project, Devious Maids.
