Fights, breakups, makeups, weddings, divorces, babies, disasters and murders are all par for the course on Wisteria Lane and the ladies of Desperate Housewives. But off-camera, the cast members are good friends who enjoy hanging out together. Many, like Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher and Vanessa Williams, are moms themselves who draw from their own experiences and emotions to shape their characters.
Now that the series is in its final weeks, Felicity has been capturing the last days of filming in candid pictures that she’s been posting to her Twitter account – many featuring the luminous Eva Longoria. She’s also graciously answered such fan questions as which souvenir she’d most like to keep from the set (“Gabby’s Austin Martin”) and what Vanessa is like to work with (“She is really wonderful on and off the screen”).
It’s hard to imagine life without the drama and adventures of Bree, Susan, Lynette, Gabby and Renee (not to mention the omnipresent spirit of Mary Alice), but we’ll always have reruns. And it surely won’t be long before we see these talented women on screen again. (Meantime, you can check out Felicity’s new website for moms, WhattheFlicka!)
