Desperate Housewives creator reveals one actress had ‘big behavioural problems’
The creator of Desperate Housewives has revealed there was one actress with ‘big behavioural problems’ who caused tension on-set amongst the cast.
Marc Cherry is one of 27 people who have written letters defending Felicity Huffman in her college admissions scandal case.
According to Us Weekly, Cherry’s letter detailed how one actress in particular was often rude to cast members but Huffman, 56, refused to rise to it.
Desperate Housewives also starred Eva Longoria, Terri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Nicollette Sheridan, and ran from 2004 until 2012.
The showrunner reportedly wrote about the unnamed troublesome actress: ‘She was a big star with some big behavioral problems.
‘Everyone tried their darndest to get along with this woman over the course of the show. It was impossible.’
Cherry, 57, praised the way Huffman handled the actress’ attitude as a testament to her character.
‘Things went from bad to worse. Felicity still insisted on saying “Good morning” to this actress, even though she knew she wouldn’t get a response,’ he claimed.
‘I found out about this and asked Felicity about it. She smiled and said, “Just because that woman’s determined to be rude, doesn’t mean she can keep me from being polite”.’
Cherry’s revelation comes after reports that Eva Longoria wrote a letter on Huffman’s behalf and claimed she was ‘bullied’ and ‘tortured’ by a colleague.
The John Wick actress wrote: ‘There was a time I was being bullied at work by a co-worker.
‘I dreaded the days I had to work with that person because it was pure torture. Until one day, Felicity told the bully, “enough” and it all stopped.’
She reportedly added: ‘Felicity could feel that I was riddled with anxiety even though I never complained or mentioned the abuse to anyone.
‘I know I would not have survived those 10 years if it wasn’t for the friendship of Felicity.’
In May, Huffman pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 (£13,500) for an illegal scheme to doctor her daughter’s university entrance exams.
She is awaiting sentencing.
