Los Angeles, September 19, 2005 - In 2004, an outrageous new TV series
got everybody's attention. "Desperate Housewives" served up the
perfect recipe for success. Mix in the ingredients - lust, love and add five
tempting goddesses all primed for a comeback - and what have you got?
One sinfully delicious hit! Off-camera, the girls of 'Wisteria Lane'
created their own buzz. Still, success brought pressure - and sometimes
the claws came out. But if you think this fab five makes waves on
TV-wait 'til you hear their real life dramas! Just in time for the second
season premiere, this two-hour episode explores the careers of
actresses Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross and
Nicollette Sheridan leading up to the legendary casting and creation of
Desperate Housewives, the alleged cast catfights on- and off-screen, and the
phenomenon of this overwhelmingly successful series "The Women of
Desperate Housewives: The E! True Hollywood Story," premieres Sunday,
September 25, at 7:00PM ET/PT. In the two hour episode:

Eva Longoria (archival) on the ingredients of the women of Wisteria
Lane - "Sex, sex, and um, more sex."

Eva Longoria's friend, Kiki Melendez, on Eva's unflattering childhood
nickname, "Prieta Fea," Spanish for "Ugly Dark One" - "I always thought
she was bull****ting about that to be honest...And then I saw a picture
of her when she was little. And I was like, 'Oh, ok. Now I got
it...She's not lying.'"

Creator Marc Cherry (archival) on his motivation for "Desperate
Housewives" - "I was sitting at home with my mother in Orange County, watching
coverage of the Andrea Yates trial. The woman who tragically drown her
children in the bathtub. I said, 'Gosh, can you imagine a woman being
so desperate, that she would hurt her own children?' And my mom turned
to me and said, 'I've been there.' The idea for the series was born
right then and there."

Marcia Cross (archival) on her struggle before "Desperate Housewives" -
"I had kinda given up actually, I mean I just thought it's either going
to happen or it's not."

E! Online television columnist Kristin Veitch on strained relationships
on Wisteria Lane - "There was some tension behind the scenes, clearly.
With women in that situation who've been in the business that long, who
are all so hungry for this kind of comeback. It's, of course, only
natural that they would have some sort of tension about who's gonna wear
what, who's gonna stand where, how these sorts of things were gonna go

Cherry (archival) on his initial rejection for the TV series - "I
released it and sent it all over and everyone said 'No.' About six different
networks passed on the script and the one place we hadn't sent it to
was ABC, you know because I was desperate, but not that desperate."

Longoria (archival) on her view of fellow cast mates - "They've all
been there and done that and they're over the diva-ness. They're just
happy to be there."

Journalist Dawn Yanek on Marc Cherry's casting for character Susan
Mayer - "He was actually looking at Mary Louise Parker and Calista

Yanek on Terri Hatcher's struggle for success - "She had been through a
really rough time with her divorce in 2003 and she wasn't working., She
wasn't even on the list when Marc Cherry started thinking about who
would be Susan"

Teri Hatcher (archival) on her connection with her character Susan
Mayer - "I'm not exactly her, but I get her. I get her insecurities and her

Kiki Melendez on Eva's appetite - "The woman eats like a truck driver.
(Laughs) And she just has that metabolism. A flat stomach. She's so
tiny, you know. Her arms are tiny...she's got a nice butt. I'm like,
'Damn, Eva. You got a nice ass. How the hell did that happen?'"

Veitch on Marc Cherry's casting for Marcia Cross's character - "The
role of Bree Van de Camp was modeled after Mark Cherry's own mother. And
he has said that he actually thinks he was frightened of casting Marcia
in that role because she actually reminded him of his own mother, and
he was terrified."

Jesse Metcalfe (archival) on his Wisteria Lane experiences - "My time's
pretty evenly divided between mowing the lawn and you know, making

Cross (archival) on her character's seductive wardrobe - "I was in a
bra and panties and was complaining forever. It was miserable. Let Teri
do it and Eva do it, that's how I feel about it."

Hatcher (archival) on her Emmy award nomination - "None of us would
have been nominated if it wasn't for each other... I'm so grateful that
this was me, but I wouldn't be anywhere without the rest of them."

This was so lame. I thought the "True Hollywood Story" is supposed to reveal juicy and scandalous info, but this was basically a boring mini-biography on their B-list careers before hitting it big.
Oh, I loved the Emmy footage -- which happened a week ago!!! HAHA!

Yeah, what a waste of time.

Should of just been called Teri Hatcher: The E! True Hollywood Story.

It was a nice little recap of their careers and stuff, I guess.
