Eva Longoria Calls Teri Hatcher a Loner

Eva Longoria and Teri HatcherEva Longoria says Teri Hatcher is a "loner."

The 37-year-old beauty has dismissed claims of a feud with her former Desperate Housewives co-star, but admits the actress would purposely distance herself from socializing with the rest of the cast.

"You know, Teri was just a loner. I don't know. Me and Marcia [Cross] and Felicity [Huffman] were a lot closer because we are just girlie girls who like to be in each other's company. Teri didn't. There was no bad blood, I think that was just the way it was," she said.

Eva's former co-star Nicollette Sheridan recently sued the program's creators for unfair dismissal and despite the claims she made against the show, the brunette star insists the legal battle hasn't affected her relationship with the actress. "We were pretty removed from the court case. But Nicollette is great, she is a great girl. She's funny, she's really a broad. She's just a fun girl to hang out with," she said.

It was recently revealed that Teri's name was noticeably left off the notes attached to the farewell presents Eva, Marcia , Felicity and Vanessa Williams gave to the crew when 'Desperate Housewives' came to an end.

ABC offers apology regarding Desperate Housewives Philippines comment

Desperate Housewives  ABC might have stepped over the line during a recent episode of Desperate Housewives, sparking a public outcry culminating in online petitions, angry phone calls and criticism from Philippine officials. Sunday’s Desperate season premiere featured Susan () at the doctor’s office, a character who becomes horrified to learn she may be going through menopause. Here’s how it played out:

“Listen, Susan, I know for a lot of women the word ‘menopause’ has negative connotations. You hear ‘aging, brittle bones, loss of sexual desire,’” says the doctor. “Okay, so before we go any further, can I check these diplomas? Just to make sure they aren’t, like, from some med school in the Philippines?” Susan offers her supposed-to-be-funny rejoinder.

And that’s when the desperation hit the fan. Calls started rolling in, and as of Wednesday evening more than thirty thousand had added their names to an online petition demanding apology from ABC. The network has responded with a statement saying they’re considering editing the episode, and has offered their “sincere apologies.” The prepared statement said the network had no intention of disparaging the integrity of any aspect of the medical community in the Philippines. The episode has drawn international attention and plenty of YouTube hits, beginning a PR nightmare for ABC execs.
