Nicollete Sheridan: No Longer A ‘Desperate’ Housewife

Ryan Seacrest’s biggest fan Nicollette Sheridan is leaving ABC’s Desperate Housewives this season.

“[Nicollette] had a great time on the show and is looking forward to her next project,” her rep said in a statement to TV Guide.

The sultry actress, 45, who plays the vixenish troublemaker Edie Britt on ABC’s Sunday night mainstay, has been at the center of this season’s main mystery.

Her new husband Dave (played by actor Neil McDonough) apparently has evil on the brain.

Could he be facillitating her character’s exit? Or perhaps she needs to focus on getting Michael Bolton back in the stable?

Let’s face it – this will deal a blow to the show.

Edie was always the character who would say what you were thinking about the other characters, especially about goofy Susan (played by Teri Hatcher).

Hopefully they get Hatcher another arch-enemy soon and one as sassy as Sheridan.
