Image Credit: : Ron Tom/ABCWow – and I thought I was popular! Dana Delany is so well-regarded over at ABC that network prez Steve McPherson is inviting her to cheat on Desperate Housewives by starring in Body of Evidence, an Alphabet pilot that, if it’s picked up, would almost certainly take her away permanently from Wisteria Lane.

Of course, that’s provided a deal can be made. As of now, Delany is still in talks to headline Evidence, a procedural that centers around a female medical examiner who used to work as a neurosurgeon. ABC declined to comment.

So, all that said, are you thinking what I am: WTF?! Share your conspiracy theories below. What does this mean for DH? And what on earth is so special about this role on Body that only the China Beach alum could play it?
