Eva Longoria says Teri Hatcher is a ''loner''.

The 37-year-old beauty has dismissed claims of a feud with her former 'Desperate Housewives' co-star, but admits the actress would purposely distance herself from socialising with the rest of the cast.

Eva said: ''You know, Teri was just a loner. I don't know. Me and Marcia [Cross] and Felicity [Huffman] were a lot closer because we are just girlie girls who like to be in each other's company. Teri didn't.

''There was no bad blood, I think that was just the way it was.''

Eva's former co-star Nicollette Sheridan recently sued the programme's creators for unfair dismissal and despite the claims she made against the show, the brunette star insists the legal battle hasn't affected her relationship with the actress.

She added to Britain's OK! magazine: ''We were pretty removed from the court case. But Nicollette is great, she is a great girl.

''She's funny, she's really a broad. She's just a fun girl to hang out with.''

It was recently revealed that Teri's name was noticeably left off the notes attached to the farewell presents Eva, Marcia , Felicity and Vanessa Williams gave to the crew when 'Desperate Housewives' came to an end.
