It sounds like the drama on Wisteria Lane really did occur behind the scenes.
Marc Cherry, who created the ABC series Desperate Housewives, wrote a letter supporting Felicity Huffman- who played Lynette Scavo on the show- as she awaits her sentence for the college admissions scandal (she’s looking at one month behind bars).
Cherry’s letter mentioned that Huffman and the rest of the cast dealt with a co-star who was difficult to work with, but Huffman was always professional and cordial.
“Everyone tried their darndest to get along with this woman over the course of the show. It was impossible,” Cherry wrote without naming said woman. “And things went from bad to worse. Felicity still insisted on saying, ‘Good morning’ to this actress, even though she knew she wouldn’t get a response. I found out about this and asked Felicity about it. She smiled and said, ‘Just because that woman’s determined to be rude, doesn’t mean she can keep me from being polite.’”
Just recently, Eva Longoria who played Gaby Solis, mentioned that this “rude” actress was bullying her and Huffman would always stick up for her.
The real question is, who is this bully co-star? Given what Cherry wrote, we have more information, which is that it’s a woman. But who could it be?
The contestants are likely Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan. Marcia Cross seemed to be good friends with Longoria, so it’s likely not her. But we’re looking at the rest of that group! For all we know, maybe it was another featured actress.
Maybe she’ll come clean, but for now, the media is focused on what’s next for Huffman and how long she’ll be in prison for- if at all.
