Nicollette Sheridan nixes report she will return to 'Desperate Housewives' on 'Today''Desperate Housewives' is going to take its "victory lap" for an eighth and final season, but it will apparently do so without one if its longtime stars. Despite a story in the Hollywood Reporter in which creator Marc Cherry said the character Edie could return to the show, Nicollette Sheridan said on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) that isn't likely to happen.

When Kathie Lee Gifford told Sheridan about the report, Sheridan replied, "Huh. Well, that's news to me." It's not necessarily that Sheridan would be against it, she just sees a wee bit of a practical problem to solve. "I had an amazing time playing that character," she said. "I loved her dearly, but they killed her. She's dead."

Nicollette Sheridan Returning to TV

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 22nd 2010 12:00PM
When last we saw poor Nicollette Sheridan, her character Edie Britt on 'Desperate Housewives' was in the process of being electrocuted while attempting to escape her murderous third husband. After that experience, just about anything would seem to be smooth sailing for the actress.

Even the cutthroat world of a Hollywood stage mom.

Yes, Sheridan's experience dealing with backstabbing psychopaths is about to come in very handy, as the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the actress has signed on for a new CBS pilot in which she will play an "outrageous stage mother" trying to manage her teen daughter to stardom.

Review: 'Big Love' - 'The Mighty and Strong'

(S04E04) "You wanted to play nice dolly with the nancy boy, but he's collaborating with your enemy. What a fool you've been." - Roman's ghost to Alby on discovering that Dale is working with Bill

This week's episode was full of moments that made my spine want to worm its way up my neck and straight out the back of my head like sp,e bizarre alien larvae working its way through my innards for a chance at breathing some clean air.

Sure, the tension was thick and coated the show in a gooey texture from the opening to closing credits, but this week also added an extra layer of pure visceral emotion that broke through the screen and made you feel the unspoken tension in places you didn't know had nerve endings.

TV Moment of 2009: Edie's Shocking Death on 'Desperate Housewives'

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 25th 2009 10:00AM
The sudden death of 'Desperate Housewives'' Edie Britt, a fixture on the show since day one, was indeed a shocker, but only in the most literal sense, since she died of electrocution, In other ways, it wasn't shocking at all, since the slutty realtor's impending demise had been confirmed weeks before in the entertainment press.

Given the longstanding reports of tension between Nicollette Sheridan and 'Housewives' creator Marc Cherry, her abrupt departure was not a surprise. In a way, however, it was fitting, as the backstage drama matched the on-screen drama, with Sheridan the locus of whispered gossip, just like her character. As Edie herself put it, in a patented 'Housewives' post-death omniscient voiceover, she died as she'd lived, as the the town's pleasure center.

TV News Daily: Why Nicollette Sheridan Was Killed Off 'Desperate Housewives'

by Thomas DiChiara, posted Apr 14th 2009 12:00PM
Nicollette SheridanWhy was Wisteria Lane's resident troublemaker Edie killed off 'Desperate Housewives' last month? Depends who you ask.

Nicollette Sheridan, who portrayed Edie for five years, and series creator Marc Cherry are sparring over why exactly the character was sent to meet her maker -- and some of the allegations are downright funny.

In other news, NBC's Boston affiliate has backpedaled on its earlier decision to air a newscast instead of Jay Leno's new primetime show, Showtime has renewed 'The Tudors' for a fourth and final season, and HBO is planning a movie about the 2008 presidential election.

TV Squad Ten: TV's biggest tramps

by Kona Gallagher, posted Mar 16th 2009 2:30PM
kate austen lostYou've gotta admit: tramps are fun. Their boozy, often promiscuous antics are the life of any party. Whether you're cheering them on or witnessing their antics with horror, tramps make any situation interesting. The same goes for TV shows. From Blanche DuBois to, well, most of The Real World cast members after season 3 or so, the television landscape has been filled with entertainingly trampy characters.

They may steal your husband, dance on a bar, or just generally leave a path of destruction in their wake. Whatever it is, it's sure to be memorable. For this reason, TV tramps are not to be looked down upon; they are to be revered. So consider this list a tribute: a tribute to TV's biggest tramps. May they never reexamine the path their life has taken.

Nicolette Sheridan to leave Desperate Housewives... for real this time!

Desperate Housewives
Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we? On May 2, 2008, I posted an article about Nicollette Sheridan probably leaving Desperate Housewives. Actually, 2008 was not the first year we heard rumors about the actress maybe leaving Wisteria Lane for good. We heard the rumor at the end of each season since Sheridan joined the series.

What's different with this year's rumor about the actress leaving the show? Well, it turns out Sheridan will be leaving the show for real this time!

Slight spoilers about the show coming up!

I must admit that I didn't expected the episode to end the way it ended. Oh, I'm not talking about the actual reveal, which I'll talk about after the jump. I'm talking about the fact the last new Desperate Housewives episode before the holidays actually didn't end with a huge cliffhanger (there are a few loose ends and questions but nothing that will prevent me from sleeping until January) and, instead, offered us some answers. Yes, actual answers. Let's talk about them, shall we?

Sweeps is a time for closure, new twists, guest stars, and OMG!/WTF? moments. This week's episode of Desperate Housewives, which is the first November Sweeps installment of the series this season, definitely offered us new twists and guest stars thanks to the arrival of Gail O'Grady, Frances Conroy and Lily Tomlin. All three actresses will appear in a few episodes of the series and, as we saw in "There's Always a Woman," will be involved in some important way in the storylines.

Desperate Housewives panel: Five years older, and surprisingly dull - TCA Report

Desperate Housewives panel
Thanks to Marc Cherry and Shonda Rhimes, the ABC show-runner panel was a good way to start the afternoon. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there, as the panels for Dirty Sexy Money, Private Practice, and Desperate Housewives were surprisingly dull, especially considering the fact that Cherry and Rhimes returned for the DH and Practice panels, respectively.

Even something Cherry said that seemed like it would be news -- that he's going to end DH after the seventh season -- turned out to be old hat, as he announced the very same thing at the Winter 2007 tour. "Yeah, I've made the decision that after seven years, I will probably keel over in a hump and die," he said. "I love my baby, you know. I love working with these gals, but the idea of letting anyone else take the show from me kind of makes me sad and sick to my stomach."

"Mother Said" was quite the eventful episode since it pushed forward all of the ladies' storylines and dealt with two big secrets: Benjamin's and Dylan's parents. It also featured scenes of the four main characters together, which we haven't seen much lately.

Finally, after weeks of being almost useless to the series (those of you who read my reviews regularly know that lately I've been rooting for the Solises to leave Wisteria Lane), Gaby and Carlos got a meatier storyline thanks to the addition for a few episodes of Mallory Keaton, err, Justine Bateman. The downside? The storyline is too predictable.

Is Nicollette Sheridan leaving Desperate Housewives?

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 2nd 2008 12:41PM
Desperate HousewivesOne of the ongoing rumors about Desperate Housewives is that one of the ladies will be leaving the show at the end of the season. It's a rumor we actually heard almost every year. However, it's been growing lately, especially in light of the big twist set to happen at the end of the two-hour season finale and of recent cast interviews in which we learned that no one is safe.

Of course, it's pretty much a given that the four main characters (Bree, Susan, Gaby, Lynette) will be returning next season. Word on the street is that Katherine will also be coming back since fans have been responding positively to her addition. With that info in hand, fingers were pointed at one housewife: Edie, played by Nicollette Sheridan.
