Rumours of friction among the cast of “Desperate Housewives” were rampant throughout the series’ eight-season run, and according to one of the show’s stars, those rumours had a bit of truth to them.
During a visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday, expectant mom Eva Longoria discussed her ongoing friendship with former co-stars Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, telling host Jimmy Kimmel that both will be in attendance when Longoria receives her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next week.
“We’re very good friends,” Longoria said, prompting Kimmel to ask, “All of you?”
“No,” Longoria, 43, responded with a laugh. “But 99 per cent of us are.”
While Longoria didn’t mention the name of the “Desperate Housewives” star on the receiving end of her shade-throwing, a 2012 interview she gave to OK! magazine (via Digital Spy) may shed light on the matter.
“You know, Teri [Hatcher] was just a loner,” she told the magazine. “Me and Marcia and Felicity 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.”
During the same interview, Longoria also denied that her friendship with former “Housewives” co-star Nicollette Sheridan was impacted when she sued series creator Marc Cherry in a high-profile wrongful-termination lawsuit.
“We were pretty removed from the court case,” added Longoria. “But Nicollette is great, she is a great girl. She’s just a fun girl to hang out with.”
