Nicollette Sheridan’s forthcoming Desperate Housewives exit has renewed fears among the show’s cast that no one is safe from Marc Cherry’s poison pen.
“Everyone is vulnerable on Wisteria Lane — any of us could go,” co-star Dana Delany admitted at Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards. “Every single person in that cast feels like their days are numbered. I think [Marc] likes to keep people on their toes.”
An upcoming episode that finds (spoiler alert!) Katherine and Mike (James Denton) embarking on a camping trip with resident psycho Dave (Neal McDonough) did nothing to ease Delany’s anxiety. “Trust me, I was worried the minute I read that,” confessed the actress. “[Dave’s] clearly not right in the head, and he has already wrongfully accused people of crimes, punched people, and killed people. But it’s good because that sense of not knowing keeps the actors on their toes and it keeps the audience anticipating.”
To that end, Delany offered this cryptic tease about Katherine and Mike’s little wilderness retreat with Mr. Crazy: “There was a rifle involved, but I can’t say anything more than that.”
Housewives fans: Imagine you were Marc Cherry for a moment — which Housewife would you send packing next? Susan gets my vote. Girlfriend continues to grate on my last nerve. (Reporting by Carrie Bell)
