Former ER star Alex Kingston has blasted the stars of hit TV series Desperate Housewives, claiming she was turned down for the role played by Felicity Huffman because she has too many curves. Kingston claims the super-skinny actresses in the hit series make viewers feel guilty about their normal-sized figures. She explains, "I didn't get the part, and I know why: irrespective of acting ability, I'm just way too big. "The women are all size two and go perfectly together. But to me, they didn't look like desperate housewives, but desperate glamour models. "It drives me crazy; it's encouraging women to feel guilty about not looking like that."
