‘Desperate Housewives’ Star Eva Longoria: Teri Hatcher Is a ‘Loner’
Eva Longoria, who played Gabrielle Solis on the hit ABC show Desperate Housewives until its demise earlier this month, is opening up about the feud that engulfed the cast — and she’s taking aim at Teri Hatcher.
“You know, Teri was just a loner,” Longoria, 37, said in a new interview with Britain’s OK! magazine.
You’ll remember: Celebuzz broke the story, detailing how 47-year-old Hatcher’s name was omitted from a farewell card given to crew members as the series came to an end.
Instead, the names of Longoria, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Vanessa Williams were all featured at the bottom of the card, which was inserted into the label holder on the expensive luggage the cast had given the crew as a gift.
What else did Longoria have to say about Hatcher?
“Me and Marcia and Felicity were a lot closer because we are just girlie girls who like to be in each other’s company… Teri didn’t,” said Longoria, who is now producing a show with Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.
Rumors of a feud between the Housewives stars surfaced in 2007, when her co-star Longoria was first asked how close she was to the other Desperate Housewives stars.
She said: “Flick and I live down the street from each other. When (ex-husband) Tony [Parker] is in town, Marcia and I get together with our husbands – those two are big basketball fans.”
Completely omitting Teri from her list, she added: “And Nicollette (Sheridan) and I go shopping all the time.”
Despite the obvious tension, Longoria attempted to play down the animosity in the new interview with OK!, saying: “There was no bad blood. I think that was just the way it was.”
Celebuzz also reported that Hatcher was quick to pack it up and leave Wisteria Lane as soon as the series was wrapped; she hired movers to clear out her trailer before the finale even aired.
