'Desperate Housewives' has NOT fired Drea de Matteo

Posted on

You can fuhgeddabout widespread rumors that says Desperate Housewives is on the verge of whacking Drea de Matteo.

A Housewives insider insists there’s no truth to a report in The National Enquirer claiming the Emmy winner is being written off the show for budgetary reasons.

Per my source, the terms of de Matteo’s Housewives contract — which calls for her to appear in 20 of this season’s 23 episodes — remain unchanged.

Relieved? Disappointed? Indifferent? Pick one and post it below.
