The Women of Desperate Housewives

We don't hear about them much these days except for Felicity Huffman who was on American Crime. What happened to their fame is a mystery. I liked the show back in the day and the set was a nasty place.

Marcia Cross had a stint on Quantico. Eva Longoria was a producer for Devious Maids; not sure what she's doing now that it's canceled.

Teri Hatcher... was a guest host on Chopped one time.

R5 The show itself has been largely forgotten. Considering how hot the show was at its peak. It's rarely talked about anymore except for the toxic on-set drama. I don't think it has been shown in syndication other than for Lifetime and they haven't aired any episodes for several years now.

R7 I think all the Housewives (and Marc Cherry) hated Teri Hatcher. She could be very nasty at times. I suspect she might be bipolar.

They all turned on Nicolette Sheridan after her incident with Marc Cherry.

Marcia, Felicity, and Eva didn't have much time for those they perceived to be under them.

I heard Drea De Matteo hated being on the show so much and the unpleasant environment, that she was counting the seconds until her time on the show was over.

Were they nasty to guest stars like the cast of Friends was?

by Anonymousreply 1307/05/2017

Word was that Vanessa Williams managed to avoid the many feuds and minefields and got along with just about everyone, except Hatcher, because no one did.

The producers wrote a whole season where Hatcher's character moved out of the neighborhood so they could minimize her interactions with the other actresses. In the last two seasons there were some terrible CGI moments where Hatcher was pasted in with the rest of the cast.

Teri Hatcher was the Julianna Margulies of her show.

By all reports each of the stars had their moments of being difficult but Hatcher was so unhinged and unreasonable that by the end the entire cast was pretty much united in their hatred of her.

The first season was excellent, but for me, the remaining seasons never lived up to that first season. The Alfre Woodard story in the second season was awful, despite Woodward being an excellent actress.

The backstage drama affected the show like it did with The Good Wife. I started focusing on why Hatcher was isolated from the rest of the cast, like Margulies seemed to isolate herself more and more as the Good Wife went on (and of course the terrible CGI pasting of her and Archie in the bar scene).

Eva Longoria is a shit actress but she was decent on DH and will remain her best role.

Felicity Huffman is an excellent actress. No surprise she won the Emmy and her performances on American Crime are incredible.

by Anonymousreply 1907/05/2017

I never understood why Hatcher is so difficult, I can kind of understand her being a bitch when she was young and hot, a lot of pretty girls can be obnoxious when they're young but it's like the older she got the meaner and harder to work with she became.

[quote]The first season was excellent, but for me, the remaining seasons never lived up to that first season.

Season 1 had a certain novelty to it story-wise, as it was one-of-a-kind and the Mary Alice mystery was really the heart of the show. None of the seasons following it had the special kind of magic that season 1 had, because the freshness wore off and the audience had a basic idea of what they were in for. However, season 4 came pretty close to recapturing the funny, soapy quality of the 1st, and the 7th episode of season 3 is my favorite of the series. Season 5 was when it REALLY started taking a turn for the worse.

by Anonymousreply 2107/05/2017

I get the feeling that Hatcher was promised the "lead" role and then didn't take too kindly to the show becoming an ensemble. That's usually the way these onset feuds start, when someone becomes threatened.

It was probably pitched to her as the Teri Hatcher Show with all the other ladies supporting her storylines. We could probably do an entire thread of shows where the supporting players outshined the lead or the supposed lead.

Teri's behaviour is interesting. What was her point? Longoria can't act. Marcia Cross was also my favorite because she acted Bree so well.

Vanessa Williams gets along with everybody. The cast of Ugly Betty is still tight and she was used to that kind of working environment so it must have been a shock when she ended up working with those cunts. I loved season one, was less than thrilled by season 2 and then i just stopped watching. I did love Sheridan though. Gorgeous and funny. And James Denton was hot.

by Anonymousreply 3207/05/2017

I really like Vanessa Williams and she really tried on DH, but her character seemed too similar to Edie and she was essentially a replacement for Nicollette Sheridan. They just shoehorned her into the show because she had a contract with ABC and they didn't have anything else for her at the time. She deserved better.

I think they underestimated how much Sheridan added to the show. Edie was a lot of fun, was a great foil (Hatcher was at her best on the show when Susan and Edie were feuding) and not as overexposed as the other housewives. The show went downhill quickly after her departure.

Former DL fave Gale Harold was hot AF on that show as Hatcher's housepainter boytoy.

He also had some surprisingly good comic timing.

by Anonymousreply 3607/05/2017

Compare and contrast: class act Vanessa Williams and other UGLY BETTY cast members all attended America Ferrera's wedding in 2011. That cast loved and respected one another.

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES has been described as one of the nastiest sets of a hit show. (FWIW, ER was another one.) Everyone hid in their trailers, counted lines and close-ups, and fought for press. Only Felicity Huffman was able to maintain the illusion of civility and professionalism; according to rumor, she was the last woman standing who could actually speak to Teri Hatcher, much less pretend to like her.

by Anonymousreply 3707/05/2017

R35 I think Marc Cherry had it out for Sheridan for a long time. He never seen her as a main Housewife and had plotted on killing her character off for a while before they actually did. It turned out to the be a big mistake and the beginning of the end of the show.

by Anonymousreply 3807/05/2017

Hatcher had a bad reputation even on Lois & Clark. At the time, Dean Cain was dating Gabby Reece and I remember a reporter asking her her thoughts on Teri. She started to say something then stopped and said "let's just say she takes herself VERY seriously." Leopard never changes its spots.

by Anonymousreply 3907/05/2017

A producer on Jay Leno wrote a book about his time working on the show and named Hatcher as one of the most difficult guests on the show. She sounds very erratic.

[quote]“I called her Teri One and Teri Two, though not to her face. Teri One was charming, smart, witty and flirtatious,” Berg writes. “Terri Two was moody. She would call me late the night before her scheduled appearance, scream at me for not having better ideas, and then hang up. The next day, she would come to show as Teri One, acting as if nothing had ever happened.”

Sheridan claimed in her lawsuit Marc Cherry said this about Hatcher: “I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies”

r40 haha I read that, too. She sounds batshit crazy.

I remember when the show first aired. It was an instant hit and I am sure the fame went to their heads.

Nice to hear about the Ugly Betty cast. Williams was so good on that show. She really dominated her scenes. But that cast worked as an ensemble; everybody shined. It's a shame the DH cast didn't realize how good they had it and put aside their egos and worked with each other. I thought each of them was perfect for their roles but the obvious let's-isolate-certain-cast-members filming became noticeable (as it did on Good Wife) became noticeable and affected the show as a whole.

by Anonymousreply 4207/05/2017

I remember the wrap party gift to the crew was luggage, with a nice message from Eva, Felicity, Marcia and Vanessa to the people who had worked on the show for years.

Hatcher wasn't included, and Vanessa Williams -- who had only been on the show for a couple of years -- pitched in, which indicated not only that she was accepted and liked by the longtime leads, but she had the class to thank a crew she only had known for a little while.

R21, that third season episode was written by Joe Keenan, who also wrote most of the great "Frasier" episodes. And I agree it's the best episode the show ever did.

I wish some of the recurring players got more recognition for their work, aside from the late Kathryn Joosten. Harriet Sansom Harris was wonderful in the first season, while Shawn Pyfrom did some good work throughout (I think he's the kid who lasted the longest on the show, for good reason). And Valerie Mahaffey and Dixie Carter were great as the crazy villains of one of the early seasons.

He still works a lot. His imdb page is full of upcoming projects. General Hospital is the most high-profile. He still looks good too - actually, I think he looks better now than in his twink prime. He lost the blond highlights and kind of looks like James Denton.

by Anonymousreply 4707/05/2017

Carnes was kind of the perfect ideal of the early 2000s muscle twink, so I thought he might have aged poorly after graduating from the frosted tips and pukka shell years.

He does still look great, especially because I was expecting really unfortunate facial hair.

Kathryn Joosten (Mrs. McCluskey) did some fantastic farewell interview (before she died) with EmmyTVLegends where she dishes a great deal about Desperate Houswives and it seems like she doesn't hold back. I highly recommend it.

Yeah, Keenan was a very talented writer. Gay too, I believe. I think he's essentially retired now. That episode had some of the blackest humor in the entire series and Laurie Metcalfe was beyond perfect for it. I even tried buying the script online one time, but it was a scam.

If season 2 never existed, and season 3 was the sophomore season, I think the legacy of the show would be a bit better. There were a lot of viewers that were lost in season 2 that just never came back. I also think that with the insane buzz that was built for the second season, had season 3 been in its place, the episode would have garnered more Emmy attention. Season 2 basically made the critics lose trust in the quality of the writing, and even though it bounced back, its image was still tarnished. I've always felt that it was very underrated.

by Anonymousreply 5907/06/2017

Season Two was just fine. Very fun and campy!

It was well before the stupid Five Years Later shit and the execrable Dana Delaney storyline, both of which destroyed the show.

That Kathryn Joosten interview was great. She says the housewives were spoiled, cliquish, dismissive, and not team players. She mentions that the leads took an excessively long time in makeup, which was frustrating, but she understood they were trying to maintain their "product," (their looks, I presume) which she notes was quickly diminishing in quality.

Teri Hatcher does come out sounding the best...

"Of all of them Teri was probably the friendliest to me. When I threw that Christmas party for the crew Teri was the only one who contributed and I thought that was very nice of her. She made a very nice contribution. She and I have chatted on occasion."

I love the part of Kathryn calling Nicolette dumb as a bag of rocks for trying to squeeze a quick mill out of the suit against Marc Cherry for slapping her.

by Anonymousreply 6907/06/2017

It didn't sound Joosten (who I loved on the show) and Hatcher were that close either though. But Hatcher occasionally talked to her and displayed kindness. Lots of other reports paint Hatcher as very Jekyll and Hyde-ish. Joosten maybe just was lucky enough to see mostly the good side of her. Most of the rest of the cast probably shunned her by that time and felt she had to make friendly with Joosten, who was given the cold shoulder as well.

I can't help but wonder if they because resentful of Joosten, who was older and supposed to be an occasional character becoming popular with fans and became a regular, often stole scenes from them and won two Emmy's.

Joosten and Sheridan had great chemistry on the together on show and I loved their relationship on the show.

My initial thought was that Hatcher wasn't competing with Joosten but you're probably closer to the truth, r70.

by Anonymousreply 7107/06/2017

Joosten makes a point of saying that the leading ladies didn't talkt to, or socialize, with the other cast and crew at all which I find very strange at a workplace when you rely on these people to make you look good on camera. At least pretend that you care and acknowledge them every now and then inbetween acting so terribly busy.

That Kathryn Joosten interview is hilariously dishy, but you have to admit the old gal sounds like a piece of work herself. Her main complaint is that the main housewives all had expensive trailers (and she knows how much each one got to decorate her own trailer!) and that they never invited her in.

She even bitches that her character wanted to hear Johnny Mathis' "Wonderful, Wonderful" on her deathbed: "...and I've NEVER LIKED JOHNNY MATHIS" — and that Betty White is getting all the good old-lady roles.

Although Eva Longoria plays a ditz very well, she's actually a pretty smart cookie. She earned her masters AFTER her Desperate Housewives success (not to mention the 10s of millions she must've pulled in with endorsement deals from the likes of L'oreal) and I randomly saw her at an LA Times event a few years ago speaking about women in STEM careers and was impressed by her intelligence and curiosity about the world. Not the actress out of that bunch I would've pegged for that kind of intellectual curiosity.

Unless they are all staged, in the bloopers for show every one seems to get along and the 4 main ladies seem to have good interaction with their co stars. I don't doubt there could probably be tension on the set, especially during Sheridan's exit, but i am not sure it was as bad as Jootson makes it seem. Jootson probably had a different working style then some of the other cast members. Didn't she start acting late in life ? Some of the things that annoyed her about the production might be normal on shows with lots of actors, sets, costumes, and storylines .

I don't know if Dana Delaney and Teri Hatcher are the awful divas reported, but when Joosten died, they were the ones who posted the most lovely sentiments about her. Dana in particular talked about what a "great old broad" she was, which I think Joosten would have approved of.

by Anonymousreply 10207/08/2017

The second season is underrated in my opinion. I think there were many funny moments, especially scenes with Bree. I loved the funeral scene where she changed Rex's tie in the coffin and then the different episodes of her spiral into alcoholism. Lynette had some good scenes as well that season, especially her rentering the work force.

The third season was probably the strongest after the first season. Season 4 was good, but rushed because of the writers strike . the 5 th season in my opinion is when the show started slipping . There were several episodes that were good, but several that were duds. Season 6 was the worst in my opinion. season 7 was better than 6, but still not as strong as the earlier seasons. The final season for the most part was good, though didn't care for the reveal that orson was sending the notes.

I've told this story here before but I once saw Marcia Cross at LAX pulling the don't-you-know-who-I-am act with a Southwest Airlines (!) gate agent. She wanted to board first before they called the groups so she wouldn't have to be bothered by fans. This was years before Desperate Housewives and years after Melrose Place. I think I was one of the only people around who recognized her. After witnessing that I could definitely believe she'd be demanding and not want to deal with extras or supporting players - anyone she didn't consider an equal.

[quote]I've told this story here before but I once saw Marcia Cross at LAX pulling the don't-you-know-who-I-am act with a Southwest Airlines (!) gate agent. She wanted to board first before they called the groups so she wouldn't have to be bothered by fans.

That's hilarious. If I was the gate agent, I'd be tempted to say, "If you're all that, why are you flying Southwest?"

Joosten was very complimentary towards Lily Tomlin and was all smiles talking about her.

A guilty pleasure of mine is that I watched the Cherry's follow-up series Devious Maids. Not as good as Season 1 Desperate Housewives, but stayed pretty consistent and was probably better than the last few seasons of Housewives. It did not take itself too seriously, and in some ways the last season might have been the funniest. Lucci always claimed it was a great set and everyone got along. It could just be a PR statement, but I never heard of any drama on that show. I think the show's biggest problem might have been the maids were generally the least interesting characters.

by Anonymousreply 13007/10/2017

R130 I liked Devious Maids too. I loved Genevieve and The Powell's. It was more consistent overall than DH. It helped that they had shorter seasons, so less filler episodes. It had a lot of things going against it though. The budget wasn't great and dropped with each season and Lifetime never really promoted it much. They largely ignored it for the last two seasons and promoted their own produced show Unreal, although it's always had low ratings.

by Anonymousreply 13107/11/2017

Lifetime is really bad when it comes to handling their shows. They always force their shows to cut the budget by firing actors (they pulled the same thing on Drop Dead Diva) or demote them from main cast to recurring guests.

On Devious Maid they had to let go of Edy Ganem (Valentina) and Drew Van Acker (Remi, the hot son of Genevieve!) in their second season. I mean that's just crazy fire Drew.

Obviously we'd like to hear about all five of the housewives, but I'd also be curious about Jamie Denton.

There were some terrible sequences toward the end where it was obvious that Hatcher wasn't really in the scene with the others (over the shoulder shots, etc.). Were things terrible with her by then?

by Anonymousreply 16712/03/2017

Okay [R166]!

Jamie Denton is one of the nicest guys, not only in the business but probably on the planet. He is one of the most decent, respectful people. He is very grateful to Marc Cherry but I still suspect he sort of hates him for treating him like a prop. Marc was obviously attracted to Jamie. He objectified him so much it was almost ridiculous. He ignored his character on the show for years and then suddenly decided to kill him off. Hatcher threw a manic fit when she found out, it was sort of painful as he was her safety net on that set. She didn't even bother showing up at the last table read. She was in Las Vegas at some Disney function which technically excused her because it was "work related". She would have felt so uncomfortable there as Eva, Marcia and Felicity kept crying and hugging each other and taking pictures even with Dana Delany and Brenda Strong. Teri didn't even show up at the wrap party, she had her own at home (Vanessa was there and also Tuc Watkins and Kevin Rahm). And yes ... Teri's relationship with the ladies was icy, they never interacted in those last two years. Felicity tried, she was the only one. And Hatcher despised working with Cherry, especially in the last few years. It was obvious. He filmed a cameo with another showrunner Bob Daily in the series finale (played Hatcher's movers) and when Hatcher left the camera she just stood there with the crew and screamed at Cherry: "You look so stupid!" Well, he did.

by Anonymousreply 17512/07/2017

Hello [R175]. Drea lives in NYC, but she needed the job and the salary so she was willing to travel back and forth. She didn't fit in. It was very hard and unpleasant for such an introvert like her. You'd see her during the table read and feel very bad for her because she was never at the table with the main cast but seated on the side with guests, writers and assistants. Her face would turn totally red when she had to read her lines out loud in front of us. Painfully shy. But she was very friendly with Longoria. They used to sneak away behind the bushes to smoke ciggies together. She was always contracted just for one season. Cherry tried to make her stay when Delany got her pilot and left but she refused. Things were apparently sort of tense between her and her partner at the time. She got pregnant right after she finished the show.

Regarding Cherry - probably yes, it is possible. But he is very clever about these things. Who knows what's coming? Nobody is safe anymore. We might hear some stories about him soon.

He didn't want her to be a regular but Steve McPherson from ABC insisted that she was very opular when they tested the pilot.

The DH cast was dished on and promoted as feuding within 8 weeks of it going to air. The Vanity Fair cover story and the cast interview with Oprah made sure of it. The truth is that Terry is a bit crazy but it was Marcia and Felicity who were the divas. Longoria aligned with them because Terry didn't really know how to play the way Cross and Felicity do. They did not respect Hatcher and she was under the impression that she was the lead in the show. A lot of Charlie's Angels petty conflicts grew large in middle aged actresses with their last big chance. Marc Cherry played into all of this, fanning the flames. Like a lot of gay men running shows, he's the biggest bitch diva of them all. Felicity Huffman is NOT a nice woman because she is the better actress?! She and her husband are insufferable fakes. It's true she tried to avoid the drama (in the beginning) but she was very insecure among the younger, sexier women. The talented one wants to be pretty too!!

Quality wise the show had peaked by season five. But from a ratings standpoint I’m surprised ABC didn’t milk a few more seasons out of it. It could have gone 12 or 13 seasons like Dallas or Knots Landing. In fact the show may have benefited from rotating some of the leads out and bringing in a couple of new leading ladies to the lane.

by Anonymousreply 223Last Wednesday at 5:30 PM

We wanted to kill Hatcher's character at the end of season 5 and make it a mystery the next year with all the housewives teaming up together and investigating this. She would be released from her contract and it would definitely bring some creative spark back. Sadly, Cherry nixed it, chose to kill Sheridan's character in a random episode with no build up or reveal and it just died on its ass after that. It got sitcomish and silly.
