Eva Longoria on ‘Desperate Housewives,’ Teri Hatcher feud rumors


Eva Longoria recently addressed the “Desperate Housewives” feud rumors, but her comments didn’t quite match what she’s said in the past.

During an interview on the episode of Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast released on Monday, Longoria, 48, took a trip down memory lane, to Wisteria Lane.

Shepard, 48, asked how much of the on-set feuding was “factual” and how much “We would now see as just, like, this narrative about women, that there’s no way these women could get along.”

Longoria denied rumors about feuding with her co-stars Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Teri Hatcher while they starred on the show, which ran on ABC for eight seasons, from 2004 to 2012. 

“They all had such a better handle on fame, on that narrative,” Longoria said. “I’m like, ‘[People] are saying we’re fighting.’ They’re like, ‘Well, that’s just a narrative they do on women because we’re over 40 on a television show.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ I wasn’t even that smart to understand that.”

Longoria even went so far as to say that she “forgot” about that. 

“People ask me that a lot. ‘Were you guys really fighting?’” she told Shepard. “And I was like, ‘God, I forgot that was a thing.’ It was a thing. It was a big thing.”

However, that’s not what Longoria has previously stated, and there have long been rumors of friction with Hatcher, 58. 

When the cast did a “Vanity Fair” cover shoot in 2005, Cross and Longoria reportedly threatened to walk off the set if they had to pose with Hatcher in the middle.

When the series ended in 2012, Longoria, Huffman and fellow cast members also allegedly excluded Hatcher’s signature from the thank you card they wrote for the crew.

On a 2018 appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” the talk show host asked Longoria if she was friends with “all” of her former co-stars. 

“Felicity Huffman and Marcia are going to be at my star ceremony. Felicity is giving a speech,” Longoria said, referring to the ceremony for the reveal of her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

“No, we’re very, very good friends.”

“All of you?” Kimmel asked.

“No!” Longoria confessed. “But 99 percent of us are.”

“Desperate Housewives” ran for eight seasons from 2004 to 2012. The Marc Cherry-created comedy-drama mystery also starred Nicollette Sheridan, James Denton, Brenda Strong, Ricardo Chavira and Kyle MacLachlan.
