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.

Nicollette SheridanIt seems the pilot casting news is coming fast and furious these days, eh? Now we have two former cast members of 'Desperate Housewives' (in fact they played husband and wife on the show) who are getting new TV jobs.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Nicollette Sheridan will costar in the pilot for a new CBS sitcom directed by 'Seinfeld' and 'Borat's' Larry Charles. She'll play the mom of a teen singer who has to battle with her British ex-husband who comes to the States to be with the daughter. Meanwhile, her ex from 'Desperate Housewives,' Neal McDonough, has joined the cast of ABC's 'Scoundrels,' a show we told you about a few weeks ago. He'll play Virginia Madsen's husband, a crook who is sent to jail. Actually, the whole family is filled with crooks but he's the only one sent to jail.

'Scoundrels' is described as a "dramedy." Wow I really hate that word.

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 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.
