There's About to Be a Girlfight!!

Okay, so Desperate Housewives is like one of my favorite shows. I mean, I LOVE this show. So, I was really upset to hear that the actresses on the show don't really love each other all that much. And, this is actually true and not a rumor. All of the drama revealed itself at this Vanity Fair photoshoot, and...well...I'll let you read for yourself. And, once you're done reading, I'm hoping we can start taking bets for how long before one of the original Desperate Housewives leaves the show (and no, we are not counting "Eddie" as she is NOT one of the Desperate Housewives).


NEW YORK (AP) — They may appear sultry and ready for summer on the May cover of Vanity Fair, but according to the magazine, the stars of ABC's Desperate Housewives were actually steaming angry.

Vanity Fair's cover proclaims: "You wouldn't believe what it took just to get this photo!" The article acknowledges that the poolside photo-shoot, in which the five women appear in different colored bathing suits, was manned by an ABC representative who was to make sure that certain demands were met — including that Teri Hatcher didn't select her wardrobe first or appear in the center of any group photo.

"Whatever you do," the ABC rep, who wasn't identified by name, said when he arrived on the set, "do not let Teri go to wardrobe first."

Despite the rep's plea, Hatcher was the first "housewife" to visit wardrobe, and she had consulted with the stylist days in advance. At one point, the rep proclaimed: "This is a problem. I'm getting text messages from Eva (Longoria). Everything is not fine."

The struggles continued once the photographer started snapping. Redhead Marcia Cross turned red-hot when she saw Hatcher standing next to her in the center of the shot, according to the article. Cross grabbed her bathrobe and stormed off, spewing expletives at the ABC rep.

Hatcher later walked to the other end of the set, where "she got into a tearful, heated conversation on her cell phone."

In the fold-out May cover, which hits newsstands April 12, the center position belongs to Nicollette Sheridan, who's flanked by Hatcher and Cross with Longoria and Felicity Huffman posed beneath them on a chaise — although Cross and Huffman can't be seen when the cover is folded.

Also in the article, the women discuss the media blitz surrounding the show and its stars. Huffman believes a Desperate backlash is imminent while Cross just ignores it all.

"Honestly, I don't read it," Cross told Vanity Fair of the media coverage. "And I don't even watch the show right now. It's too much. It's just too much..."


LOL! "Whatever you do, do not let Teri go to wardrobe first!" That's hilarious!

Okay, so, I'm taking predictions. Put your's in now. How long before the Desperate Housewives split up? I'm going to say that by the end of next season, one of these chicks is gone. Bonus points if you pick which one will leave first.

I LOVE, LOVE Desperate Housewives and i was also disappointed when i read that article. Why oh why does this have to happen...can't we all just get along?

I don't want any of the housewives to leave but here is my guess...

I think that they will kill off one of the housewives at the end of the season. Something tells me it is going to be Eva because she is being very "diva-like" lately.

Oh yeah, it's that Eva Longoria chick. She's already doing commercials and other stuff. She's gonna leave first.

I say Eva is a leaving too. If not her, than Teri Hatcher because of her new found fame and Golden Globe.

Ahh, but Teri Hatcher is the only one of the housewives who was signed to a multi-year contract to do the show. It's my understanding that she refused to join the other housewives to force salary discussions and that's where the tiff originated.

I always knew Terri Hatcher was a brat. Actually, know I didn't. I'm just kidding. ;)

I wonder why she got the multi-year contract? I guess an argument could be made that she was the most recognizable of the DH's (desperate housewives), but I think Marcia Cross is just as recognizalbe as Terri Hatcher. First thing I heard people say about this show was that Lois Lane and Kimberly from Melrose Place were the stars.

And, BTW, very stupid of Terri to not negotiate as a team with the other girls. I don't know when people are going to get it, but when it comes to negotiating, you do better to ally yourself with others of like interest then go at it alone. In the long run, Terri might regret that decision.

I think you should've called this post "I've Got A Meeting In The Ladies Room".

J: Well, that's what it has turned into, hasn't it? The power to speculate always brings us women together. ;)
