Marc Cherry, Eva Longoria Called a ‘Desperate Housewives’ Co-Star a Huge Bitch to Defend Felicity Huffman

One of the Desperate Housewives was apparently a real cunt who made everyone else on set miserable. Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria both wrote letters to help Felicity Huffman that’s talked about how pleasant Huffman was in dealing with this unnamed co-star (who isn’t Marcia Cross) as part of Huffman’s attempt to avoid jail for the college admissions scandal she was caught up in.

TV Line reported how Huffman stood up this bully on Longoria’s behalf.

“There was a time I was being bullied at work by a co-worker,” Longoria wrote to the judge, without naming the alleged perpetrator. “I dreaded the days I had to work with that person because it was pure torture. Until one day, Felicity told the bully ‘enough’ and it all stopped. Felicity could feel that I was riddled with anxiety even though I never complained or mentioned the abuse to anyone.”

Meanwhile, Us Magazine published Marc Cherry’s letter about the unnamed woman who I think we all realized was Teri Hatcher by now.

“She was a big star with some big behavioral problems. Everyone tried their darndest to get along with this woman over the course of the show. It was impossible. And things went from bad to worse,” he wrote. “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.’”  

Neither Cherry nor Longoria said that they were talking about Teri Hatcher, but she’s basically the only person who fits the bill, right? On top of that, rumors of her not getting along with the rest of the cast go back at least as far as a 2005 Vanity Fair photo shoot. Via People:

What happened? According to PEOPLE sources, ABC stipulated to Vanity Fair that Teri Hatcher – whose unofficial star-of-the-ensemble status has been a long-rumored point of contention on the set – not be allowed to steal the shoot. Specifically, Hatcher, a winner of a Golden Globe and SAG Award for her turn on the show, was not to get first shot at wardrobe (lest she pick the best outfits) or be posed in the center of the group.

As Zeman chronicles in the cover story, Hatcher arrived early and hit wardrobe first. Then, when Marcia Cross found herself posed next to Hatcher – standing dead center – she stormed off the set. The shoot went on, but between takes, Hatcher broke into tears during a cell phone call.

That was so long ago they specified she was using a cell phone. And here we thought Margot Kidder was the craziest Lois Lane.
