Housewives Star Slams 'Catfight' Rumours

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star FELICITY HUFFMAN has slammed reports the show's lead actresses don't get on.

Huffman and EVA LONGORIA were relative unknowns when the suburban drama hit TV screens last year (04), while TERI HATCHER, MARCIA CROSS and NICOLETTE SHERIDAN had garnered fans in past television hits LOIS + CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES IN SUPERMAN, MELROSE PLACE and KNOTS LANDING respectively.

Huffman explains, "The minute you put five women or any other number of women together, I think people think of cat fights and divas and that kind of stuff.

"Teri's had a lot of success and Marcia was on that incredible show, so maybe people think there would be jockeying for position."

But Huffman, 42, insists the actresses' middle-ages has helped.

She says, "The good side of being older and having been around the block once or twice is you know that doesn't fly, and it doesn't have longevity.

"That's the way to kill the show and kill your enjoyment of it. Everyone has a vested interest in getting along."
