Nicolette Sheridan said that Teri Hatcher was the meanest person she had ever met!

So maybe the rumors are true that Hatcher is loathed on the set.

Well, Desperate Housewives is ending this season. And just as most other shows that go off the air, there's a good chance that we will rarely see many of the "DH" cast members again.

by Anonymousreply 403/07/2012

Completely false. I've met Teri and she's the sweetest woman you will ever meet. Teri was not being a diva during the Vanity Fair shoot, it was Marcia Cross and her out of control ego that gave Teri a hard time. I've seen the footage on Access Hollywood back in 2004. It shows Cross clearly berating Teri to the verge of tears. Marc Cherry wanted Teri in the center of the photo and Marcia was jealous.

No they shouldn't have, R3. Susan has been the lead character since the very start. She's not going anywhere anytime soon. You'll have to deal.

Actually R5 if you read the VF article both she and James Denton allude to a person that causes trouble on the set.

No names are mentioned, but everyone thought it was Marcia because of the blow-up that happened during the photo shoot.

Cherry recently made a comment about one of the actresses having no comic timing and him having to coach her on how to say her lines in order to get a laugh. I've always assumed it was Cross. Which means if she's not funny AND she's a bitch that she's the luckiest fucking person alive to have the job she does.

have a friend who works on DH, and she says that teri, while high-strung and needy, isn't a bitch. however, the rest of the cast turned on her LONG ago, and don't talk with her much when not in character. she is shunned because of the previously mentioned neediness and high-strungedness.

Eva and Marcia are the biggest bullies, and like to push Teri around. They apparently have turned on new cast member Vanessa Williams as well for siding with Teri and showing up at her Halloween party two years in a row. Felicity H. is pretty neautral and just comes in and shoots her scenes so she can get home to her kids and husband. Probably around season four, Felicity requested the majority of her arcs revolve around her and onscreen husband Doug Savant. She hates working with the other woman besides Vanessa. Drea De Mateo couldn't get out of her storyline fast enough.

Marc Cherry didn't want Vanessa Williams to join the cast, but Steve McPherson suggested she join anyways since Ugly Betty was canned that same year. Cherry can't stand Ugly Betty creator Silvio Horta (who is hot as hell!) so I guess that's why he didn't want Williams. Vanessa has made several comments in the press about how much she misses Ugly Betty, and how her new character on Housewives pales in comparison to Wilhelmina. I can't believe they've kept her on another season after those remarks.

Once again, the girls of "Desperate Housewives" are not the writers, producers or director. They are hired hands. They have zero say in story lines or who they work with. They can not refuse to work with anyone. I know this is a gossip site and it makes good story to think they all hate each other but the power you give them to dictate who they work with is pure imagination.

That's certainly true in legal terms, but of course allowances are made to keep peace on any set -- and there have been weeks and weeks during this final season when Hatcher has obviously done her scenes without the other women, or with their stand-ins. Lots of over-the-shoulder shots and obvious green-screening.

Entire plotlines have been built around keeping Hatcher away from the other women; hell, for one whole season her character lived in an apartment away from Wisteria Lane. It's nothing new.

by Anonymousreply 4103/08/2012

I cannot emphasize how wrong you all are in supposing that storylines are written to keep peace or keep actresses away from one another. If any of the women even has an issue with the dialog, they have to ask politely to discuss it, and politely make their suggestions. Other shows, the cast run over the producers - but not Housewives, not even close. The fact you see Teri and others in their own story universes is a production issue. Each housewife has her own storyline per episode and cast of characters related to it. Overlap is a bitch. It's difficult to schedule and difficult to make work creatively. You can manage it for one episode, but anything prolonged means marrying two of the housewives' stories for a long period of time. And that is difficult to write, and difficult to schedule. So it's much easier to give Bree a love interest, a difficult son, and all that, than, say, make Bree and Susan all up in each other's shit for more than an episode or two. The. End.

Also, when you hear rumors that so-and-so was "the bitch," sometimes that just means she was more famous quicker than anyone else, and it felt unfair, and everyone else was jealous. You don't need to do much to be hated by your female co-stars.

by Anonymousreply 4203/08/2012

Well, Teri being a mean, needy bitch isn't new news at all and has been canon since her Lois and Clark days.

But the real bitch on the set isn't Teri. The one who stirred up all the shit in season one? Not Hatcher. Not Marcia Cross.

The ladies were actually getting along in S1. Cross, Hatcher and Sheridan were happy to be working again, and Longoria was grateful to land a nighttime role.

And THEN there was little miss theater, the one who thought she was better than everyone else. She wasn't getting her way with a lot of things in S1 so she started to do what she does best…pit people against one another.

She's the one most like her character - seemingly charming on the outside but once you spend time with her, it becomes clear she's a pushy, manipulative bitch who's super negative.

Yep. Felicity Huffman is the bitch of Wisteria Lane.

For some reason, the writers/producers seemed to change the storyline behind Drea's family's relocation to Fairview. At first, Drea's character hinted that it was her son Danny's fault that they had to move. Then it seemed to shift to her husband and then we had that ridiculous eco-terrorist plot, featuring John Barrowman as a psycho. Poorly written and totally implausible, even for this show.

I am glad they are offing Mike. He has had nothing to do this season, except stand in the background while Hatcher hammed it up or did pratfalls.

The poster said there was a point where you could see stand-ins for Bree, Lynette and Gabi that were clearly not the actresses who portrayed them - they only showed them from the back or something when Teri was on screen.

[R75] You're right. I watch more closely now, and see more and more head over shoulder shots (with stand-ins taking the place of the stars) in the two character scenes with Hatcher. You rarely see a two-character shot when one character is Hatcher with both women's faces visible in the same shot.

Too bad about James Denton...who I think IS the hottest husband, and yes, he was kind of wooden but he had nothing to work with and it worked for Mike, a masculine, normal Joe of a guy and man of few words.

The idea that they're using CGI to insert Hatcher into group scenes is ridiculous. This season especially has had major budget cuts (why do you think the husbands have all been MIA) and production on a TV show takes forever. Do you really think they're going to go through the time and expense of shooting Teri Hatcher in separate scenes and then piecing it all together in post production just so the women don't have to do a scene with her? The cast may not be best friends, but they're professionals and it's their job to do a scene even if they don't like their co-stars.

She did DH as sort of a holding deal, as I understood. She was supposed to be cast in something else last season. Paul Lee or Stephen McPherson told her that this was likely DH's last season and she came back for one more year. 666 Park looks to be her reward for patience.

But it doesn't surprise me if they all still talk to one another except for Teri. In the brief excerpt of the VF article that I was able to find online it says that at the end of the shoot when things had calmed down the rest of the women stood around having a friendly chat and Teri just walked away by herself.

Dana Delany was the first choice for Bree, right? And Calista Flockhart was the first choice for Susan, so both ladies took roles later that were less starry, Calista on Brothers and Sisters and Delany in the lesser part on DH.

by Anonymousreply 9203/09/2012

The funny thing is that other than the general Teri Hatcher drama train, and this Nicolette thing, the DH set settled down after those first few seasons.

It was partly a matter of timing. Felicity is still a manipulative bitch, but she was distracted for a while with Transamerica. By the time her full focus was back on DH, everyone had her number and knew to tread carefully around her.

Marcia Cross had her twins, and that changed her focus 1000%. For one thing, ABC moved heaven and earth to accommodate her when she had issues with the pregnancy, so she became very cooperative. And after the girls were born she didn't care as much about the show. You can see that she's been kinda, sorta phoning it in since. She'll be glad the show is done.

In all the initial chaos, Longoria pulled the oldest trick in the book - she made BFF's with Miss Cherry herself. It probably saved her job and it will almost definitely get her another job, probably in one of his shows.

And speaking of Brothers & Sisters - holy fucking shit, that set made DH look like the set of Sesame Street in comparison. Those people were acting the hell out of being a family, believe me!

by Anonymousreply 9903/10/2012

OMG. Brothers & Sisters. OK….I will say that as I mentioned in R43 I heard shit about Housewives directly from three people I knew there. This is more second hand gossip as I knew no one directly at B&S but the ABC gossip wire is pretty accurate and quick.

Like I said, they all did a good job acting. These people hated each other and if they buried the hatchet it never seemed to be for long. Matthew Rhys seemed to be the most normal and popular, as he managed to make friends (or peace) with both Rachel Griffith (ex-pat thing) and Miss You Really Like Me Sally Field.

As was reported in the news, the show changed A. LOT. in the first season or so. Holly was supposed to be a minor character. Then Patty and Ken Olin took over after Jon Robin Baitz left and it became the Holly Harper Show for a while.

There was the whole May/December thing. Y'all know Dave Annable was fucking Sally Field, right? His onscreen mom? Awkward…especially once it was done and he moved on to Emily VC who played Rebecca.

Rachel and Calista couldn't be in a room for more than five minutes with each other. Calista, in general, is the biggest cunt who ever lived and her conversations with everyone were generally "I'm not getting enough screen time." Notice that they wrote Calista into solo stories as they have with Hatcher on DH. There's a reason, kiddies. Rob Lowe was as unbearable as he was basically Calista with a penis, and ditto as to why they islanded so many of their stories.

Rachel in general seems to have some sort of bipolar thing. Her Six Feet Under character wasn't acting that much. She'd be consistent for a long time and then just come in one morning acting as if she'd dropped acid. She got a lot of shit from people on set until a few pee tests confirmed she wasn't using. It was the main reason they hired Gilles Mariani to work with her, as he really was as sweet as his character, and a total "yes" man, basically a big puppy and/or fan for Rachel, and apparently it made her bearable for the last two years.

Emily VC (now on Revenge) was the Darren Criss of the set. By that I mean if fucking it could get her fame, attention or a rung higher up the ladder she did it. (One rumor - a rumor I personally doubted - was that Em was invited to Calista's one weekend for a three way between her, Calista and Grandpap Harrison Ford.)

I don't think anyone would be surprised at all about Balty Getty, because his troubles have been so publicized. His presence would unite the otherwise feuding actors as they all despised him. He was the weak link among the original cast, unprofessional and unrehearsed. Used drugs almost all the way through - when you have four kids and work 20 hours, coke will do wonders - and Sienna Miller was hardly the first snatch he tried to break into outside of his marriage. At one point Calista and Rachel (in rare agreement) reportedly approached ABC higher ups about his presence making for a hostile work environment. Calista refused to work with him in Season 5 and as you'll notice, he was only there during the scenes where Kitty was "away" for a few episodes.

And of course Sally. Outside of the semi-scandalous affair with Dave A in season one, Sally actually liked the role and got along reasonably well with Patty and Ken, and was fairly solid for the first 2 seaons. When the show turned into the William-Walker-is-bad show and they un-Walkered Rebecca, etc. it was when a lot of the crazy shit started to happen and people were fighting, etc. and she just said "Fuck it" and started to stay in her trailer. She would skip rehearsals and several times flipped out at her "kids" and tell them to grow the fuck up and be professional. There was at least one incident where she left the set and looked into leaving, but she was bound by a five year contract.

Sally, Matthew, Dave and Calista desperately wanted the show to end. Only Rachel wanted it to keep going, and she was apparently quite devastated when it ended. She's back in Australia now, I think.

No she's in NY on Broadway right now with Stockard Channing, Judith Light and Justin Kirk.

Since we mentioned Calista (for some reason), doesn't anyone think she got together with Ford for the publicity and that Ford is actually a homo, with a boyfriend...or he spends all his time in the bottle? Just curious.

R101 I thought she was done with that a few months back? She got awful reviews for it.

by Anonymousreply 10303/10/2012

omg, r100. That's some good stuff. David and Sally? I don't know if that's "eeew!" or hot.

I never read or heard that Darren Criss is that ambitious to sleep his way up the ladder. Would love to read more about his behind the scenes antics.

Thanks again r100 for sharing.

May I politely remind you that this is a DH thread and with that kind of behind-the-scenes gossip,Brothers&Sisters deserves it own thread!

Make it happen,please!

I will go out and get some B&S gossip for you guys. But it's not as good as R100's post. If we had a DLer of the day award, I'd give it to you.

[R5] I am agreeing with R5 - people who have worked with Teri love her. One of my friends did Cabaret with her and couldn't say enough nice things about her.

[R102] Harrison Ford is an okay guy - he's deeded his land in perpetuity to the state because all the wildlife comes to his property due to all the ranches around there.

He is a major pothead and always has been.

I can believe Felicity only wanted to be around Vanessa because they're both originally from the theater. Since the others don't I'm sure Felicity doesn't respect them.

James Denton's character dies this weekend according to someone's testimony this week at Nicolette's lawsuit.

For those of you on Twitter you should follow/read this TL @writerchica. She's been at Nicolette's trial all week & she has inside info from exec producers, etc.

Ben Brantley in the New York Times praised Rachel Griffiths for giving a "beautifully modulated" performance.

Your buddy or R43: so were the lesbian rumors surrounding Marcia correct?

R67, there's an interview with Dana Delaney somewhere out there where she was asked to describe each of the ladies. I can't recall exactly what she said but she's clearly closest to Cross and speaks highly of her. She described Huffman as being "competitive". Considering the comments here, this probably means code for bitch. Her description of Hatcher was completely perfunctory.

Huffman has been doing a great job of maintaining her public image if what is being said here is true. How exactly does she manipulate people/pit them against each other? Marc recently revealed that Felicity and Eva went to him after Nicolette asked them if they could renegotiate their contracts a la Friends since they were worried how it would effect their own paycheck.

Because there were multiple characters on the show other than just the one we hated.
