Are you a Desperate Housewives fan? If so, you’re probably well aware of the drama that unfolded behind the scenes of the hit TV show. But did you know that there was a long-standing feud between two of the main cast members, Nicollette Sheridan and Teri Hatcher? That’s right, the rivalry between these two actresses was a hot topic in Hollywood for years, and it even spilled over into the show’s production. If you’re curious about the juicy details of this feud, read on for the lowdown on what really went down between Sheridan and Hatcher.
The Vanity Fair Photo Shoot Fiasco
The tension between Hatcher and the rest of the cast was highlighted during a photo shoot for Vanity Fair magazine in 2005. According to reports, there was a competition over who would be in the center of the photo, with Nicollette Sheridan nabbing that spot. Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman could not be seen unless the magazine cover was unfolded. But that wasn’t the only issue.
Apparently, an ABC employee had told the photo crew, ‘Whatever you do, do not let Teri go to wardrobe first,’ since she usually got the best clothes. However, she was the first to show up for the shoot and had already discussed her clothing options with the wardrobe stylist days prior. This caused a lot of frustration and tension among the cast, and they never did a magazine shoot together again.
Marc Cherry’s Claims
In March 2012, Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry claimed that there was a problem going on between Nicollette Sheridan and Teri Hatcher. He alleged that Sheridan had told him that Hatcher was the meanest woman in the world because of how she was acting.
During the trial, Cherry brought up a disagreement between Sheridan and Hatcher. He claimed that they were furious with each other and that Sheridan had told him that Hatcher was the meanest woman in the world because of how she was acting. However, the judge didn’t allow Cherry to continue with this story.
Eva Longoria’s Comments
Eva Longoria, another Desperate Housewives star, also commented on Hatcher’s behavior. In May 2012, Longoria described Hatcher as ‘a loner’ and said that she was a lot closer to her other co-stars, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman because they were ‘girlie girls who like to be in each other’s company.’ Longoria also revealed that she and Nicollette Sheridan often went shopping together, which seems to suggest that they were not particularly close to Hatcher.
So there you have it, folks! The feud between Nicollette Sheridan and Teri Hatcher was one for the books, and it’s clear that there was no love lost between these two former Desperate Housewives co-stars. From the infamous Vanity Fair photo shoot debacle to the allegations of mean girl behavior, it’s safe to say that this feud had all the drama we love to hate. Despite the bad blood, ‘Desperate Housewives’ will always be a classic show that brought us some of the most memorable moments in TV history.
