November 21st, 2010 1:55pm EST
Teri Hatcher
Teri Hatcher has quit her starring role on "Desperate Housewives" - according to a U.K. report.

The actress has played Susan Mayer in all seven series of the drama since it hit screens in the U.S. in 2004.

But Hatcher has reportedly told executives at America's ABC network the next season will be her last, so she can work on a new show.

A source tells Britain's Mail on Sunday, "Teri has given in her notice and is making active preparations to move on.

"She has another production deal in the pipeline and she is in the early stages of developing a sitcom that she wants to start work on im...

Teri Hatcher Sliced Off Her Eyelashes

Teri Hatcher
"Desperate Housewives" star Teri Hatcher has been forced to wear false eyelashes after a grooming session with a razor went drastically wrong.

The actress was tidying up her eyebrows the night before she took part in the recent Nautica Malibu Triathlon in California, but the blade slipped and sliced through her lashes.

Hatcher admits she was tired when she tried to clean up her appearance and she's lucky she didn't cut her eye.

She says, "I had one of those mini razors and so I (placed it on my brow) and in this millisecond I heard this sound, and I'd shaved off half of my eyelashes!"

Marcia Cross Kept Husband's Cancer Battle From Children

September 12th, 2010 1:10pm EDT
Marcia Cross
"Desperate Housewives" star Marcia Cross kept a brave face during her husband's cancer battle for the sake of her kids - and refused to tell the twins their father was fighting for his life.

The actress was left devastated when her partner, Tom Mahoney, was diagnosed with the deadly disease last year.

But Cross was determined to remain strong throughout the ordeal, and refused to tell the couple's three-year-old daughters Eden and Savannah.

She tells People.com, "There's no point in telling our kids. They were so young and anything to them is normal, so they didn't know things weren't no...

Vanessa Williams Not A Fan Of Alfre Woodard's 'Desperate Housewives' Role

September 12th, 2010 10:00am EDT
Vanessa Williams
Vanessa Williams had to be coaxed into taking on a role on hit ABC show "Desperate Housewives" - because she was one of the drama's worst critics.

The actress admits she was a big fan until Alfre Woodard became the first African-American to join the show.

Williams wasn't jealous and she doesn't dislike Woodard - but she hated her character's storyline.

She tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "She had her son in chains in the basement. It was like, 'Really? Do we have to go there with our first black character?'

"I honestly fell off the show after that. I think it was just so implausibl...

Marcia Cross
A little bit of cleavage peeked out of Marcia Cross' low cut black dress while she walked to the set of "Desperate Housewives" in Hollywood on Tuesday. The actress tried to hold her jacket closed to stay covered up. Her dress also had a long slit up the right leg.

Marcia recently said she can't wait to work with hunky new "Housewives" recruit, Brian Austin Green, who will star as her love interest.

She explained, "I'm atwitter! He's so comfortable in his own skin, and has that sort of out there sexuality. Don't tell him I said that!"

Well, she'll have to fight off Brian's new wife, Megan...

Underappreciated TV Stars

March 9th, 2010 10:00am EST
Glenn Close - Damages
They’re talented. They’re loveable. They’re hard-working TV thespians. Yet they don’t always get the credit they deserve. Here are 10 (seven, with three Honorable Mentions) out of the many TV stars that are often underappreciated.

Glenn Close – Alright, Close gets tons of credit for her work, including a string of film roles and awards galore, but she still earns a nod here. With Oscar nominations for The Big Chill, The Natural and Fatal Attraction, Close shines just as bright on the small screen. She currently stars as the lead character Patty Hewes, the ruthless litigator on the FX drama...

Drea De Matteo No Longer 'Desperate'

Drea DeMatteo
Producers of hit TV drama Desperate Housewives have confirmed actress Drea De Matteo will not be returning to the series - but deny reports she was fired due to falling ratings.

The former Sopranos star joined Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman on the program as the matriarch of an Italian family who moves to Wisteria Lane. Reports surfaced in November suggesting De Matteo had been fired after just five episodes following poor TV ratings.

However, producers insist they've merely granted her request to quit the show to spend more time with her fiancé, singer Sh...

Desperate Housewives
Through the affairs and attempted murders, the countless guest stars and time-jumping story devices, the fans have stuck with Desperate Housewives for better and for worse.

Bill Pullman Discusses 'Phoebe in Wonderland', Looks Back At 'Independence Day' And 'Spaceballs'

March 5th, 2009 10:23am EST
Bill Pullman
Sometimes what is brutally obvious to an outsider can, and does, leave the closest to a situation heartbreakingly oblivious. Phoebe in Wonderland dives head-first into this very scenario and the conflicting choices of treating a disorder by over-medicating, under-medicating or the act of self-medicating. By enshrouding oneself in a project that they love so dearly, even the symptoms of that disorder get lost in the axis of that passion.

Elle Fanning, Felicity Huffman, Bill Pullman, Patricia Clarkson and Campbell Scott steer this story down to the basic human elements of a parent's love...

'Desperate Housewives' Hit By Economy In New Episodes

March 2nd, 2009 10:45am EST
Felicity Huffman
Events on TV's Desperate Housewives have hit so close to home that it's hard to remember the show leapt ahead five years at the beginning of this season. The most recent new episode ended with the Scavos about to give up their pizza parlor due to the declining economy. Despite Obama's economic stimulus package, don't expect a happy ending when the show returns with new episodes.

"Well, I think it's really interesting that even though we're five years in the future, in five years in the future, the economy has tanked as well," joked Felicity Huffman. "I think actually it's sort of brill...

'X-Files' 10 Best Episodes

July 25th, 2008 11:34am EDT
The X-Files: I Want to Believe
After six long years, we may finally discover the ultimate truth. Today, the second "X-Files" movie hits theaters a decade after the first movie and six years after the series went off the air. All that time apart from Mulder and Scully has inevitably left fans feeling disconnected from the characters and casual viewers forgetting the show altogether.

This will probably result in the film being a massive financial failure (the first movie barely cracked $80 million at a time when 20 million people tuned in every week), but for the true X-Philes out there "The X-Files: I Want to Believ...

TV Stars Who Deserve Emmy Nominations On July 17, Part 2

Alec Baldwin - 30 Rock
Enough drama, time to laugh! The Emmy nominations are upon us, two days away in fact, so it's time to round out our suggestions to The Academy's blue ribbon panel. In the final installment, the focus turns to comedy and the actors who make us laugh every week.

This category is far more loaded than the drama section with far fewer obvious mistakes on the ballot and a ton of strong performances from the men and the women (rather than watching the ladies struggle with substandard material from their mostly male counterparts. Yes, I will clamor for more female writers and directors every...

Our Favorite TV Ensembles

June 12th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Lost
An ensemble cast is a group of actors in which each character/actor is assigned an equal level of importance to the story. Sometimes even if there is an established "main character," a show can be considered an ensemble because individuals are treated with the same care and development as everyone else on the show.

This sort of cast style gives the audience a chance to connect with several different characters rather than just one; if a viewer does not like one of the characters or cannot relate to them, there will be several more to choose from. It creates very broad storylines and v...
