HATCHER LANDS MASSIVE PAY RISE
"Desperate Housewives" star Teri Hatcher has signed up to appear in a second series of the hit show, and she will pocket a staggering $285,000 per episode.
The 40-year-old beauty's pay raise represents almost a tenfold increase on her first series pay -- and co-stars Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Nicolette Sheridan have also been rewarded for the program's success.
A show insider says of the Golden Globe-winner, "She has undoubtedly turned out to be the star of the show. Men find her sexy and women want to be like her."
Hatcher was paid $38,000 per episode for the first series, while her lesser female co-stars earned only $1,800 per episode. They have all been rewarded with a Mini car.
