Housewives Snub Media post #1  quote:



Housewives Desperate To Snub Media



Remember that endearingly self-effacing acceptance speech that Teri Hatcher gave after winning a Golden Globe last Sunday? The one where she tearily admitted that her career was in the dumpster before Desperate Housewives came along? Maybe all of that post-Globe partying erased that part of her memory, as she was a no-show at a publicity event last night. An anonymous media member reports that the Housewives set might be getting a lot more divatastic in the near future:

The ***** is back! Desperate Housewife Teri Hatcher snubbed her co-stars by refusing to show up at the Wisteria Lane Block Party organized by ABC on Sunday night on the Universal Studios backlot where the Golden Globe winning show is shot. Oh we can just imagine the backstabbing and in-fighting that must now be taking place for real amongst the former nobodies.

And not to be left out, the Housewives who did show up - Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman and Nicolette Sheridan - snubbed the media who'd been assembled on the red carpet arrivals area at the party to talk to them. We just love standing around for four hours on a Sunday for no good reason except to pamper the now gigantic egos of the Desperate Housewives.

Oh what a jolly set D.H. must be now. Pity the poor 'husbands' and other cast members who presumably now have to put up with this *****iness for real even when the cameras aren't rolling.

Dare we say it won't be a moment too soon before Teri Hatcher et al return to the dark obscurity from which they were plucked....and this in-fighting doesn't bode well for the longevity of the show - we can imagine those huge pay rise demands even as we write this...

It can't be long before "sudden illnesses" befall Wisteria Lane as the networks and agents fight to renegotiate their contracts, and the producers threaten more murder plotlines involving the regular cast. Teri Hatcher probably won't want her character to wind up buried underneath the pool and be forced to have a second career resurrection.

'DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES' DEMAND BIGGER PAYCHECKS?

The stars of TV hit "Desperate Housewives" have reportedly threatened a revolt over their small salaries.

Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria and Nicolette Sheridan are all demanding bigger paychecks to cash in on the success of the ABC series that won two Golden Globes last week, reports Britain's Daily Star Sunday newspaper.

More than 40 countries have snapped up the dark comedy and it is a U.S. ratings hit, regularly pulling in more than 30 million viewers.

An insider at Touchstone Television says, "The girls are fuming. Their salaries range from $47,000 to $76,000 an episode -- which is peanuts compared to the cash coming in from selling it around the world. It's crazy when you compare it with the $1.8 million-a-show the stars of 'Friends' were making. No one's suggesting they're worth that much. But they do deserve a slice of the big bucks they're generating."

In an interview with People magazine last month, Sheridan complained, "I'm the poorest actress on television. I heard [the cast of] 'Friends' got cars when they had such amazing ratings. But I got flowers. I'm still waiting for the Porsche."

One series and a few Golden Globes and they all think they're Queens of TV?
$47,000 - $76,000 per episode is an enormous amount of money, especially when you consider that Terri Hatcher was probably living on royalties from old Superman re-runs being played in a country you've never heard of.

It doesn't take long for the heads to get fat.
