Teri Hatcher Actress ABC

Teri Hatcher

After a six-year disappearance from seriest television, Hatcher is back playing "Susan Mayer" on ABC's new sensational and award winning series "Desperate Housewives". Hatcher earned her acting status on ABC's "Lois&Clark" which aired from 1994-1997. Among the many highlights of Hatcher's career is a turn hosting Saturday Night Live that had USA Today commenting, "She gives one of the best and most energetic performances by a good-sport host in a long time." What's more, the sketches she did with Molly Shannon, David Spade and Chris Kattan have become part of SNL's Best Of. Other favorite roles include that of Sally Bowles in the national tour of the Tony Award-winning musical Cabaret and the many opportunities Off-Broadway and around the globe to talk about and examine her own issues through her performance in Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. Of all her film credits, Hatcher still considers the first movie she ever made -- The Big Picture, directed by Christopher Guest -- to be her favorite. Other movies that followed were Soapdish, with Kevin Kline, Two Days in the Valley, Spy Kids, directed by Roberto Rodriguez, and a turn as a "Bond" girl in Tomorrow Never Dies, opposite Pierce Brosnan. Nor will anyone ever forget the line she made famous in Seinfeld, which was, of course, "They're real -- and they're spectacular." Hatcher was honored with the 1996 "Spirit of Compassion Award" for her generous support of the Aviva Center, which provides services to sexually and physically abused adolescents. She has been a strong supporter of AIDS Walk Los Angeles and New York, and very active in the battle against breast cancer. Among her pop culture honors, Hatcher has topped Best Dressed lists around the world and was voted E! Entertainment Television's "Best Dressed Woman of 1996." She's been recognized as one of the sexiest women on television, and had the distinction of being the most downloaded image on the internet the year she posed wrapped in Superman's cape -- and nothing else! She has also been honored by the Hollywood Women's Press Club as "Discovery of the Year," but this year she looks forward to being re-discovered in the role of Susan Mayer. It's a role that's taken her years to be ready for, and one that will offer viewers a surprising and new turn from this well known and talented actress. Hatcher was born on December 8, 1964, in Sunnyvale, California. Hatcher gave birth to her daughter, Emerson Rose, on November 1997.

 

Teri Hatcher: 40 and Hot !

With her breakout hit Desperate Housewives, the former Lois Lane has given men everywhere a reason to covet 40-year-old divorcees

Ten years ago, Teri Hatcher wrapped herself in nothing but Superman’s red cape and posed for what would soon become touted as the most downloaded picture on the Internet. The shot cemented her place in pinup history and firmly proved that no one was tuning into Lois & Clark because they wanted to see Dean Cain in tights.

Now, at the age of 40, Teri’s a phenomenon once more—this time as Susan, the divorced and oh so-horny mother on ABC’s hit, Desperate Housewives. “I feel like I’ve won the lottery with that show,” she says.
Born in Sunnyvale, CA, Teri fell into show business in the early-80s when she followed a friend to a Love Boat audition and ended up snagging a dancing mermaid slot herself. Nice start, but Teri didn’t gain national hottie recognition until 10 years later, when she was cast on Seinfeld as the girl with the perfect rack. Finally, after uttering her immortal, asset-describing line—“They’re real and they’re spectacular!” Teri’s star ascended. Lois & Clark followed soon after.

Alas, the show ended in 1997, the same year Teri took her Bond girl turn in Tomorrow Never Dies. Now she’s back in the news. And back in the nude: One of the most memorable Housewives episodes thus far found her spending quality time locked out of her house without a shred of cloth covering her. Even better: Teri promises more. “Boys,” she says into FHM’s tape recorder, “keep watching and I’ll take my clothes off in as many episodes as you’d like.” Promises, promises. . .
Teri, you give 40 a good name.
That’s a good angle: 40 and hot. Do that! I wanted to show with this photo shoot that women of my age can be sensual. That’s as opposed to what I can’t do, which is be a 22-year-old in a bikini on the beach in Malibu. I wanted to show a knowing sexuality, not a flitting sexuality.

OK, but you accomplished that mission back in the days of Lois & Clark with your cape shot.
What’s sexy about that shot is what you’re not seeing. It’s the idea that I’m wrapped only in his cape. How did I get in it? What happened before?

Wasn’t that shot your idea?
It was. At the photo shoot, ABC put me in a business blouse and said, “Put the cape around you.” I said, “With this blouse on? Don’t you think I should take it off?” They said, “No, that’s too sexy.” I said, “C’mon, let’s just shoot one roll without the blouse.” So out of the 10-hour photo shoot, there was one roll with the blouse off—and that’s what they used.
And you’ve been taking it off ever since. You were nude on Desperate Housewives right off the bat.
God, I know. It’s funny because I would not put myself on the list of Pam Anderson killer bodies. I mean, I clean up OK, but. . . .

That’s ridiculous. After all, you’re the perfectly breasted Seinfeld girl.
Nine years ago they were “real and spectacular.” Now they’re just “real.” Oh, come on. Those puppies are practically pop-culture artifacts. If they’re going to be pop artifacts, my deathbed wish is that somebody cuts them off, freezes them, puts them in a frame and auctions them off for a million dollars for some fabulous women’s charity.

For now, just tell us about spending the day naked on your show.
Well, you can’t do real nudity on ABC, so I had little tape things stuck all over me. I went out at 6:30 in the morning, flung off my robe and said, “OK, everyone, I’m mortified, but we’re gonna be looking at it all day, so let’s just get it over with. Here
it is! Look!”
You’ve come a long way from the “unattractive nerd” you’ve described your adolescent self as being.
Oh, I’m still a nerd, make no mistake. But I distinctly remember leaving sophomore year of high school with no breasts. Then something happened over the summer and I came back with breasts that I wasn’t even aware I had. Suddenly, the seniors were asking me out. I was thrilled.

So just like your character on the show, your pipes are clogged?
Soooo clogged!

Maybe you need to call a plumber.
Oh, I do. I did, actually, ask a guy out on a date today, which is really big for me. I met him a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to get him out of my head, so I called information and got his number, and we’re going to go out. See? I’m not making myself out to be desperate, I really am. So if this works out, he’s a lucky man. We’ll see. God, cut to January when this comes out and I’ll be crying and sobbing somewhere.

Teri's Pole Dancing Antics

Teri Hatcher has confessed she enjoys a spot of pole dancing.

But says she doesn't do it for the sauce factor...

The Desperate Housewives star has revealed that she's keen on nipping off to the gym - not to sweat away on the running machine and pump the weights - but to get intimate with a pole.

She admitted that she signed up for a course in pole dancing and lap dancing - not in a bid to broaden her career horizons but to tone her body.

The exercises are devised by professional strippers - but there's no point hopping on a plane to LA and signing up for the classes yourself because she doesn't actually get nude.

"I don't take my clothes off. It involves stripping moves around a pole - or lap dancing," she said.

Having re-found her status as an A-list celeb - thanks to her role as Susan Mayer - Teri is now set to appear in Elton John's new video.

She's already filmed her part for Turn The Lights Out When You Leave and loved every moment of it.

"It was really surreal, very arty," she said.

Sex starved Teri Hatcher considered hiring gigolo!

Teri Hatcher has admitted she is so desperate for sex she has considered hiring a gigolo.

The 'Desperate Housewives' star said it has been so long since she has got steamy between the sheets she thought about calling up a prostitute for a service.

She said: "I've thought about hiring a male hooker. I mean I wouldn't do it, but I've thought about it and the kind of control it would give you.

It would be like if you were getting your carpet cleaned and there was a spot they didn't get out.
"You'd feel safe saying, 'I need you to get this spot out or I'm not paying you."

However, Teri says she keeps herself satisfied with sex toys.

She revealed in and interview with Britain's FHM magazine: "To be honest, I don't know what I want a man for - I have some fabulous electronics to use instead."

Teri Hatcher: Desperate Housewives close to her real life

Teri Hatcher says that her 'Desperate Housewives' character is closer to her real life image than any of the other roles she has played.

The 40-year-old actress, who plays single mother Susan May in the award-winning series, says the part is more closely aligned to the way she sees herself than any of the other sexy roles she was cast in before.

She said: "My image before was fairly inaccurate. It was this glamorous James Bond, sex appeal kind of actress.

So getting to play someone who feels much closer to me, much more vulnerable, was great."
But the sexy star, who took ten years off to raise her daughter, says she knew the role would change her life in the same way that playing Lois Lane in 'The New Adventures of Superman' launched her.

The twice-divorced actress revealed that she got depressed waiting for the right part, but knew that her career would get back on track once she did.

She said: "All it takes is one good film or series and suddenly your career is on fire and you're not worried about where your life is going anymore.

"Because when things aren't going well in your career, it starts to depress you."

Teri Hatcher: Happy To Strip For Desperate Housewives

HATCHER PROUD TO STRIP ON DESPERATE WIVES

Actress TERI HATCHER found stripping off for US TV show DESPERATE WIVES satisfying - because she was proud to show off her bosom after breast-feeding her daughter.

The 40-year-old star felt liberated to be given the chance to remove her clothes onscreen, seven years after giving birth to EMERSON ROSE.

Hatcher says, "I'm a game girl and will give most things a try.

 

Teri Hatcher appears in video for Sir Elton

Teri Hatcher is to appear in the video for Elton John's new single.

The 'Desperate Housewives' star has already filmed her part for the video to 'Turn The Lights Out When You Leave' and says she enjoyed every moment of it.

She said: "It was really surreal, very arty."

Other stars to have appeared in Elton's videos include Justin Timberlake, Robert Downey Jr. and David Beckham.

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old beauty, who plays single mum Susan in the hit show, has confessed she has pole dancing lessons - in a bid to keep in shape.
The sexy actress has undertaken a course at a Los Angeles gym that involves using exercises recommended by professional strippers.
She said: "I don't take my clothes off. It involves stripping moves around a pole - or lap dancing.

It's ideal and I've noticed my body's taken on a new shape. It's more about being comfortable with your body than anything else."

Teri Hatcher Talks About Love, Life, The Past And The Future

There are few women in Hollywood who wouldn't want to be Teri Hatcher.

She's the star of ABC's new hit television show "Desperate Housewives." Her physique has been the object of fascination in an episode of "Seinfeld." And for four years, she played the girlfriend of the most powerful man in the universe. Hatcher, 40, says she wants to be doing something very different five years down the line — though you could say it's still sort of "Housewives"- related.

"I would like to explore coming out with lines of products that help real women's lives. And help them feel better and good and have joy in their lives and laugh a little bit," the actress said.

Hatcher says she is interested in marketing and advertising — as well as some aspects of homemaking. The interview was conducted at Hatcher's house, where the former Lois Lane of "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" was in the middle of baking a batch of cookies.

"I love actually the idea of being able to make real women feel good," Hatcher said. One example might be showing women how to make great cookies quickly.

"I think there's a place that isn't quite Martha Stewart, you know, that's so perfect," she said. "I'm sort of flawed and kind of nutty and goofy and insecure and messy. That's a lot of us, you know."

A 'Wife' From the Start

"'Desperate Housewives' has been hailed as "the hottest new show on television" and a social phenomenon comparable to the recently ended HBO series "Sex and the City."

The dramedy revolves around the lives of four suburban friends on sparkling yet sterile Wisteria Lane: a man-hungry divorced mom, a former career woman making a rocky transition to family life, a perfectionist homemaker and an adulterous trophy wife.

Hatcher plays the divorcee. There are elements in Hatcher's own personal history that might be relevant to her character today.The former cheerleader said that even when she was in high school, she never really dated and was an "instant boyfriend kind of person."

If she went on a date with someone named "John Smith," she said, she would almost immediately be wondering, "'Teri Smith. How am I going to write that?'" she said. "I just so wanted to get married, so wanted to be a family — so wanted that perfect ideal of a family."
Hatcher says she never thought about dating as experimentation, "that you could go out with people and see who they were and then decide if you liked them or they liked you or you were right for each other. I always just thought that I had to somehow make it work."

Hatcher has been married twice and divorced twice. She told Sawyer: "I think I ended up with guys, boyfriends or husbands that weren't necessarily bad guys & but weren't common enough with values and goals and communications enough that it made a marriage."

Good Genes

Hatcher and her Susan Mayer character might be one of the most intensely watched pop culture figures today, but she rejects the idea of being glamorous.

"It was really important to me in the world to be able to embrace not being glamorous," she told Sawyer.

The woman whose physical attributes were admired as "real and spectacular" in a "Seinfeld" episode nearly a decade ago even plays down her still-shapely physique.

She attributes it to good genes. "I mean I try to hike and work out and that kind of stuff but I've never been consistent," she said. "You know, I've never had an eating disorder. I eat what I want and then I'll kind of watch it for a couple of days, but I eat healthy."

She added, "I breast-fed for two and a half years. I mean you don't want to see me out of my bra — that's why I haven't had sex in however many years & I'm shy about the whole thing!"

Second Wind

In a sense, Hatcher's success was both familiar and long-awaited. In the late 1990s, she seemed to be at the peak of her career. There was the "Seinfeld" tribute. A picture of her from her "Lois & Clark" days with her wearing nothing but Superman's red cape famously became the most-downloaded image on America Online

And then the show was canceled. She had her first baby. She was divorced for a second time.
She told Sawyer about the fear she felt at that time. She felt that she might have to take a job that she didn't want just to pay the bills. But even worse, she said, was feeling like she failed at life.

"I failed at my marriage. I don't have a career. I might lose my house. I don't have a man," she said.

"That sort of harshness of judgment of myself — how will I ever move beyond this? That really desperate feeling when you feel like you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel."

She's much better now. "You know when you can have a job that you love and get paid for it — I mean you're lucky, you're really lucky," she told Sawyer.

Teri Hatcher: Thank$, gang

In other news from Wisteria Lane, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria are getting $250,000 "thank-you" bonuses from ABC, a source close to the show says. Housewives supporting players Nicollette Sheridan and James Denton also were given significant bonuses, with the rest of the cast receiving lesser amounts, USA Today reports.

Teri is no longer a desperate housewife

Teri Hatcher has revealed she has had sex for the first time in four years.

The Desperate Housewives star, who plays Susan Mayer in the show, is finally back dating.

Teri revealed recently that she had not had sex since splitting from husband Jon Tenney.

But Teri, 40, has been dating a new man for the last few weeks reports The Sun.

Asked if she was having she said: "I'm satisfied with my life, let's put it that way."

 

Teri Defends Her Breasts


Teri Hatcher has come out fighting against reports that her boobs are fake. The star of new TV drama Desperate Housewives has revealed that she's about fed up with defending her very real breasts.

The 40-year-old actress admits that she's always received plenty of attention - and probably the odd gawp - for her pert boobies and is used to them being subject to speculation about whether they're implants.

"I think they should have been cast in bronze at some point because there's been so much hysteria surrounding them."

But she's not exactly complaining about people's preoccupation with her looks...

"I suppose you could have worse compliments, but you don't want to get stuck in people's minds just for having a nice story.

"It's a contradiction because being attractive is a way of getting recognition and it can lead to a lot of work, but at some point you've got to convince people that you can do more than just play a sultry female fatale kind of character," she said.

Teri shot to fame in 1993 as Superman's girlfriend Lois Lane, before starring as a Bond Girl alongside Pierce Brosnan in Tomorrow Never Dies in 1997.

She then took some time out to be a mother before returning to the limelight recently with Golden Globe-winning series Desperate Housewives.

 

Super Teri's TV Comeback

When sexy Teri Hatcher decided to quit the limelight seven years ago, her army of male admirers were sent in to deep shock.

They had grown attached to the raven-haired beauty in her roving role as reporter Lois Lane in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman.

But Teri decided enough was enough - and dumped stardom for full-time motherhood after the birth of daughter Emerson Rose.

100% Mother

So committed to her new arrival was Teri, she even rejected out of hand any suggestion of bringing in a nanny to help, unlike most Hollywood mums.

Gone forever... well, not quite. Now she's back in the new racy chick drama Desperate Housewives which is set to fill the void left by Sex And The City.

And it looks likely to turn stunning Teri into the new Sarah Jessica Parker.

Teri, now 40, plays single mum and divorcee Susan Mayer, who has a teenage daughter and will go to any lengths to grab a fella.

She gushed: "The part of Susan appears tailor-made for me. It seems like I just stepped into her skin.

"Emerson is in the first grade of her school so it seemed to me that this was the most appropriate time to get a job.

"It may not seem like much of an artistic choice to some people but I would not trade one minute of the time I spent with Emerson and have her raised by a nanny."

Superman's Super-babe!

It's all such a far cry from those days as one of the sexiest women on the globe during the height of Superman's success.

A picture of her naked with only the Man Of Steel's cape to preserve her modesty was the most downloaded snap on the internet the year it was released.

Her star was rising when she appeared as temptress Paris Carver in Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies. Then she quit the scene.

But anyone who knows Teri will tell you she never ceases to amaze. In her youth she was a professional cheerleader for the San Francisco 49ers - all this while studying Engineering and Maths.

Her beauty and brains combo has always made her more streetwise than most.

Hidden Talents

As she said during her Superman days: "Despite the fact that I have a good-size pair of breasts, in Lois & Clark, I have the opportunity to show the world they're not my only attribute."

But since that Bond role, her main job has been as a mum. Now she is relishing her role as Mayer. And like Mayer, she has had her own marital problems too.

Teri's first marriage, to actor Marcus Leithold in 1988, ended after just ten months. She was subsequently linked with various men, including Superman co-star Dean Cain.

But she eventually married American actor John Tenney in 1994 - father to Emerson - before they split in March 2003.

Teri says she is happy to be a singleton - and vows she won't be rushing to tie the knot for a third time.

"If you pinned me down to a yes or no, I would probably say no. It's so far from what I can imagine right now. My priorities are my daughter, family, friends and work."

Far removed from sexually rampant Susan Mayer, then ..

 

Teri Hatcher takes off

WHEN Teri Hatcher hits TV screens as sultry Susan Mayer in Desperate Housewives' next month, it's more likely viewers that will be desperate to be a part of the action.

The former Superman super babe, who recently hit 40, is feeling anything but past her best, and is thoroughly enjoying a renaissance as a sex symbol in the hit US drama.
As covergirl for this month's US edition of FHM magazine, Hatcher appears anything but shy about her rejuvenated sassy status.

"Keep watching and I’ll take my clothes off in as many episodes as you’d like," she cheekily told the men's mag after heating up its pages with a steamy pictorial featuring lingerie and little else.

It's that mood that has catapulted Desperate Housewives to the top of the US entertainment charts and won Hatcher a Golden Globe this week in Hollywood for her performance in the series.

"I feel like I’ve won the lottery with that show," she said.

Hatcher's character is described as "the divorcee and single mum who will to extraordinary lengths for love".

That includes being locked out of the house in one episode covered in nothing but a tablecloth.

Hatcher, who happily describes herself as "a nerd", remains surprisingly modest about her beauty.

"It’s funny because I would not put myself on the list of Pam Anderson killer bodies. I mean, I clean up OK, but," she tells FHM.

But don't leave this story thinking Desperate Housewives is all about pleasing the boys - there's plenty to keep the female audience coming back for more, including hunky neighbour Mike Delfino, played by James Denton.

Told from the vantage point of a dead character, Mary Alice Young, Desperate Housewives is as unique as it is enticing for viewers.

Millions of American viewers can't be wrong, can they?

'Desperate Housewives' in feud

Desperate Housewives stars Nicolette Sheridan (Edie Britt) and Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer) aren't getting along, The Mirror reports today.

The actresses have apparently been getting competitive over their roles, and their salaries.

An insider told the newspaper, "Nicolette started bad-mouthing Teri, telling people that she is too skinny and not attractive, and that she should have landed the lead instead. Teri just thinks Nicolette is way too abrasive."

The source added, "Nicolette thinks she's a bigger name than Teri and is angry that she didn't get her part. Within a week of filming beginning she was moaning to producers."

Nicolette is also said to be angry over her salary, compared to Teri's $30,000-per-episode contract.

She recently complained, "I'm the poorest actress on television."

The stars have denied the alleged rift. Teri insisted, "We get along great - there's no competitiveness."

ABC's 'The View' gets 'Desperate'

The ladies at "The View" are getting pretty desperate. During the week of Feb. 7, the five stars of "Desperate Housewives" will co-host ABC's "The View" while the show broadcasts from Los Angeles. Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria, Nicollette Sheridan, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross will each join the daytime talk show for a day.

The Wisteria Lane residents will be filling in for "The View" moderator Meredith Vieira, who will not be making the trip from New York to Los Angeles due to family obligations.

Broadcasting live from Disney's El Capitan Theater, the week is a themed series called "The View Celebrates Los Angeles."

On Sunday, Hatcher won a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV comedy or musical. The ABC show also won for best comedy or musical TV series.

The other hosts of "The View" are Barbara Walters, Star Jones Reynolds, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. The show airs weekdays on ABC.

Teri Hatcher has life outside 'House'

"Desperate Housewives" is proof that patience can pay off. Teri, who has been seen sporadically in TV productions in recent years, was expected to find success on the big screen when she followed "Lois & Clark" in 1997 with the 007 Pierce Brosnan starrer "Tomorrow Never Dies," and around the same time made the indie "Two Days in the Valley." The latter only brought in a measly $11 million domestically, while the former didn't prove to be her launching pad to film stardom after all.

Meanwhile, Teri gave birth to daughter Emerson Rose in November 1997. (She and actor Jon Tenney divorced last year.) In 1999, she starred as Sally Bowles in a production of "Cabaret" that toured the United States. Hatcher's most recent big-screen credit came with the 2001 "Spy Kids."

Teri Hatcher gives up on finding romance

Teri Hatcher has given up on finding romance - because every man she fancies is already taken.

The raven-haired beauty says she has had no love in her life since splitting from her ex husband Jon Tenney five years ago and every man she would consider dating since has a hot model girlfriend.

But the 40-year-old 'Desperate Housewives' star, who recently said she hasn't had sex in years, has revealed she's only looking for fun and is not ready to settle down and remarry.

She told America's Us magazine: "I'm pretty shy and I'm also pretty busy, so I really don't meet anybody. When I do, he already has a girlfriend, like a really hot model.
"I'm not looking to fall in love and marry. Not because I'm angry or defensive, it just isn't on my agenda right now."

Meanwhile, Teri has confessed to having so much fun using vibrators - she doesn't need a man to satisfy her.

The sexy star said: "I don't know what I want a male for. I have some fabulous electronics to use instead. And any woman who tells you she doesn't is lying."

Teri Hatcher Fixed Up On Dentist Date By Leno

Sexy actress TERI HATCHER's love life has been given a boost, after comedian JAY LENO set her up on a date with a dentist she's been admiring from afar.

Hatcher, who now stars in the hit comedy series DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, recently admitted to Leno that when she saw DR WILLIAM DORFMAN on the reality show EXTREME MAKEOVER, she decided to look him up on internet search engine GOOGLE.

And Leno tracked down Dr Dorfman to Sweden, where he's attending a convention and asked him to leave a special message for Hatcher.

In a taped message which Hatcher listened to on Leno's chat show on Friday (19NOV04), a flatted Dr Dorfman said, "It's so ironic, because last week I saw your show and I said to all my friends, 'I would love to meet that woman. She seems so sweet and down-to-earth and she's so beautiful.'

"As soon as I get back in town, Jay promised he'd give me your number, and I will give you a call."

But now a coy Hatcher says, "I'm quite at loss because I just need my teeth fixed. I've got a cracked veneer and there's multiple reasons to go see Dr Dorfman. He seemed nice.

"I'd go out with him, but if it doesn't go well, will he still fix my mouth?"

Hatcher has rejected Leno's offer to have a film crew tape their first meeting.

Teri Hatcher is among Blackwell's best-dressed list

Nicolette Sheridan of "Desperate Housewives" tops Mr. Blackwell's annual Worst-Dressed List for what he calls her "barely-there bombs" that make her the "Tacky Temptress of Wisteria Lane."

Lindsay Lohan is criticized for dressing in a "schizophrenic frenzy." Both Jessica and Ashlee Simpson are on the list, along with Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.

Even Meryl Streep isn't spared for wearing what Mr. Blackwell describes as "dowdy glasses and lumpy tents.

While Nicolette Sheridan is on the worst-dressed list, her fellow Desperate Housewife Teri Hatcher is among Mr. Blackwell's Fabulous Fashion Independents, along with Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Garner, Natalie Portman and Kate Winslet.

 

Teri Hatcher hasn't had sex in four years


Teri Hatcher has revealed she hasn't had sex in four years. The beautiful actress, famous for her role as Lois Lane in '90s hit TV series 'The New Adventures of Superman', has confessed she hasn't had any fun between the sheets since splitting from actor husband Jon Tenney in 2000.

The star, who also plays a frustrated single mom in the acclaimed US series 'Desperate Housewives' told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "There just isn't any space for it. I don't have a boyfriend because I don't go out on dates. But it's okay - I'm not sad because of it."

However, the sexy brunette seems to be getting more action on-screen and says she loves starring in the show's raunchy sex scene. She admitted: "It's not a bad job. I must admit. We spent one whole morning kissing."

Meanwhile, the on-screen goddess, who in real life is mother to a seven-year-old daughter says she trains for the role - by attending pole dancing classes at a Los Angeles gym.

She added: "I know it sounds funny, but it's great for your muscles. It's also really empowering because it's not about turning a guy on - it's about turning yourself on and learning about being comfortable with your own body."

Teri Hatcher's birthday party was a huge success

2005 Golden Globe Nominee Teri Hatcher, gorgeous star of the hit series Desperate Housewives, celebrated her birthday on Saturday, December 11th by letting 100 of her closest friends in on her very own beauty secrets.

Held at her home, the theme of the event was “a 40th trip around the sun,” with travel elements featured throughout – from catering to specialty Ciroc Vodka cocktails, to selections of yummy Godiva truffles. Guests were even issued passport photos for the innovative celebration. At the end of the event, the attendees, including such celebrities as Teri’s Desperate Housewives co-stars Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria and Brenda Strong, plus William H.

Take My Wife... Please! Teri Hatcher Gets Desperate

The last time we saw Hatcher on the tube she was hawking electronic gizmos for Radio Shack. Her days starring in the '90s cult fave Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman seemed far behind her.

But guess what? She's back, not just in a starring role but in one of fall's most anticipated new series: Desperate Housewives, a drama about suburban socialites that marks ABC's return to the prime-time soap box. It's already a critics' darling..

So, you must be excited about the buzz surrounding Desperate Housewives?
This is definitely the best written piece of material I have ever had an opportunity to do. I am extremely pleased.

How did you end up on the show?
I had my meeting, many meetings, with the writers and the creators and the producers and the directors...And, you know, you get that moment where you feel like it all clicks. They get you, and you get them, and that's great. But it was really the material and just getting to play somebody self-effacing and insecure and humble. I jumped at that opportunity and worked hard to get it.

Was Susan the role you wanted?
It was. Because it's the first time I really got an opportunity to play not the, you know, overtly sexy, aggressive character but instead, the more relatable kind of normal woman with normal problems.

You're a working mom yourself...do you relate to your character?
Certainly. I relate, through my entire life, to relationship struggles and issues and insecurities. I have girlfriends who are moms, too. That's my life. I get up, I take my daughter to school, I cook breakfast, I pack lunches, I try to cook and pay the bills. So, [Susan] isn't me, but it's certainly relatable.

You've said you were worried that you wouldn't get work in television. Did you really believe that?
That is the reality of this business. Maybe I could always work. I could get a job, but it might not be a show I want to be on or a part I really feel passionately about. When I met with [producers], I didn't know if I was going to end up in the show or not. But I did go in and say, "Okay, this is the best thing I've read in five years, and I just have to tell you that, whether you cast me or not."

Teri Hatcher still on a hot hit

Feeling "Desperate" these days? If so, you're certainly not alone.
The new TV season has had several big successes, but arguably the most amazing -- because of its offbeat approach and its huge out-of-the-chute audience, which made its premiere that week's top-rated show -- is "Desperate Housewives," ABC's seriocomic Sunday series about the women of suburban, deceptively tranquil Wisteria Lane.

Creator-producer Marc Cherry's merger of heightened drama, mystery and overt wackiness was dormant for a while after he devised it, but it's put ABC back on the ratings radar in a major way
"Desperate Housewives" has had such an immediate impact, a repeat of the previous Sunday's episode has occupied many recent Saturdays on ABC. Many viewers can't wait for the next exploits of divorced mom Susan (Teri Hatcher), businesswoman-turned-domestic poster girl Lynette (Felicity Huffman), maritally separated perfectionist Bree (Marcia Cross), having-it-all-but-still-wanting-more Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) and much-divorced Edie (Nicollette Sheridan).
How popular is the show? Consider that it took only a couple of weeks for Oprah Winfrey to devote an episode to the actresses, and that "Dr. Phil" recently did an installment on "The Real Lives of Desperate Housewives."

Oh, there are men in the series, too ... such as frequently shirtless plumber and break-in expert Mike (James Denton) and hunky young gardener John (Jesse Metcalfe). The show is called "Desperate Housewives," though, so there's no question the women are the ones in charge. "That's really Marc Cherry's genius," Hatcher says. "It was all there in the pilot. All the female characters are very different but equally interesting and strong.

"From the standpoint of camaraderie, there's really no competitive feeling. Susan would never be Bree, Bree would never be Gabrielle, and so on. That allows us to be very complementary to each other, and I think the casting hits that sort of chemistry that usually only exists between men and women. I don't know if that's just luck, or if it was the smarts of the producers. We never read with each other. It all just sort of happened."

"Desperate Housewives" is a particularly sweet career chapter for Hatcher, who previously worked for ABC not only as Lois Lane ("Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"), but also as a mermaid dancer aboard "The Love Boat" during that show's final season. She reflects, "The lovely thing about having been around for a long time, and having had ups and downs, is that you have a greater sense of appreciation when lightning strikes like this. I have a real sense of respect and giddiness about how lucky I am to be a part of this.

"At the same time," Hatcher adds, "it's not like I have the sense of youthfulness that lets me go, 'Yippee; I'm on a hit.' I still go to work, I still take care of my daughter (whose father is actor Jon Tenney, Hatcher's ex-husband), and I still have my life. Other than having a great place to work with a lot of great people and great material, not a lot has changed, then. It's a terrific balance of being grateful and still being me."

Clothes make the desperate housewives

Dressing the main characters for a hit TV show is a dream for any designer. But when the show is "Desperate Housewives," it's especially delicious. That's because costume designer Cate Adair has five distinctive women to clothe in the ABC show (9 p.m. Sundays, WRTV ).

The women who live on Wisteria Lane include Lynette, a former career woman with four children under the age of 6; Bree, a perfectionist with a crumbling marriage; Susan, a divorced single mom and world-class klutz; Gabrielle, a former runway model who married for money and seeks solace in the arms of the lawn boy; and serial divorcee Edie.

As they try to unravel the mysterious suicide of their best friend, who is the show's narrator, the women cope with marital strife, misbehaving children and menacing neighbors in a merry-go-round of fashion styles. From a fashion point of view, no show has gotten this much buzz since "Sex and the City." But the "Desperate" stars are much more varied -- and much less daring -- in their clothing tastes than Carrie Bradshaw & Co.

The female leads typically have between five and 12 costume changes in each show, so Adair and her staff of nine stay busy. She already has filled two 50-foot trailers and several storage facilities with clothes, and the season isn't half over.

The design team scours big department stores, tiny boutiques and thrift shops for clothing they can use or adapt. High-fashion designs from Diane von Furstenberg, Milly, Catherine Malandrino, Nanette Lepore and Marc Jacobs have been showcased, along with clothing from American Eagle Outfitters, Target and J.C. Penney.

But no matter where the clothing comes from, the No. 1 rule is that it must always fit the tastes and lifestyle of each character. For Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), the team strives to be a little bit arty since the character is a children's-book illustrator. "We try to make it so it's not a little off, but a little different," Adair said. "It all coordinates, but she's not matchy-matchy."

The team deliberately chooses fabrics with different textures and varieties "so you believe that she's a single mom who has a really good eye and mixes and matches pieces," Adair said. "She doesn't go out and buy a whole outfit like Gabrielle does. She'd have a great pair of jeans and a sweater and match it with a purse she found at a swap meet and an art-nouveau bracelet her grandma left to her."

''Desperate Housewives'' scores big

A murdered housewife has ABC feeling anything but desperate.

Desperate Housewives, TV's hottest new show, had its biggest night yet Sunday: 27 million viewers, 3 million more than the week before, tuned into a much-hyped episode to see nosy Mrs. Huber (Christine Estabrook) get killed. It was last week's most-watched show.

The series also scored TV's biggest young-adult ratings — 16.1 million viewers ages 18 to 49, according to preliminary Nielsen figures — since the Friends finale in May (32.1 million). In that advertiser-coveted demographic, Housewives eclipsed American Idol's May finale (15.4 million), Game 7 of the Yankees-Red Sox championship series (15.3 million) and the highest-rated Summer Olympics night (15.1 million).

Interest stirred by speculation about which housewife would die — stoked in ABC promotions and picked up by the media — led to the "huge number," says Stacey Lynn Koerner of media-buying firm Initiative. "It's a big show in and of itself. This kind of promotion is like 'Who Shot J.R.?' "

The previous episode made it appear that divorcée Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan) might be the victim. Paul Young (Mark Moses) hired a hit man to kill Edie, believing she wrote the incriminating note that caused his wife to commit suicide. After Paul learned that Mrs. Huber wrote the note, he confronted her and strangled her in a rage.

Promos might have led viewers to believe that one of the main female characters (played by Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria and Sheridan) would be killed; Koerner says ABC didn't try to disabuse them of such theories.

Some of the show's fans thought ABC oversold the importance of the housewife's demise. "I was a little disappointed that all the hype about someone leaving led only to 'Mrs. Kravitz,' " the Bewitched busybody to whom Mrs. Huber is sometimes compared, says Kimberly Kamis, of Orchard Park, N.Y. "She was a fun, nasty character, but her dying was hardly shocking."

Although some fans were surprised by Mrs. Huber's demise, others assumed that Housewives wouldn't kill a major character so early in the show's life. Many were relieved the central characters were spared. "I was disappointed that it wasn't a more exciting ending but was happy that none of the four main housewives were killed off," says Katherine Ritsema of Birmingham, Mich.
