There’s trouble brewing on Wisteria Lane. For a while now there have been reports of an ongoing feud between the leading ladies of Desperate Housewives.And those rumours were further fuelled this week with the presentation of a parting gift.The stars of the show got together to present the crew with a goodbye present to thank them for their hard work on the outgoing drama.But one name was conspicuously absent from the accompanying card - that of Teri Hatcher.
According to Celebuzz, the message read: "Just know that on all your future adventures you are carrying a little piece of our love and gratitude. "Thank you for a magical 8 years. Love Eva, Marcia, Felicity and Vanessa.""The girls don’t get on with Teri so they organised this and left her out," a production source exclusively told Celebuzz.It is not the first suggestion of a rift between the ladies.
Teri was noticeably absent for the Desperate Housewives' finale party last month and did not feature in any of the photos posted by Eva Longoria on the last day of filming.And during Nicolette Sheridan’s court case against creator Marc Cherry, he stated that she had described Teri as "the meanest woman in the world."It also emerged that TV bosses had considered writing her out of the show in series five.According to TV Guide magazine expert William Keck, Teri "physically separates herself from the others during breaks in filming.""Something went down two seasons ago that created a deep rift,"” he added.But the actress – who picked up the best actress Golden Globe in 2005 - told the publication: "I will never disclose the true and complicated journey of us all, but I wish everyone on the show well."
