“Every day it gets to be a little more real," says Hatcher. The show was so popular that even former First Lady Laura Bush once jokingly announced, ”Ladies and gentlemen, I am a desperate housewife.”
Hatcher, 47, who portrayed zany Susan Mayer since the first episode in 2004, revealed her thoughts on the show to People Magazine at the Wisteria Lane Block Party benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
"We've had a lot of time to process it, so it's not a shock. But I think you just can't really know what it's going to feel like until it's over."
But will the ensemble cast be left hanging when it comes to resolving their story lines? Hatcher assures People that justice will be done.
"I feel like [the finale] does a pretty good job at honoring all the different characters and their sort of unique wheelhouses that they brought ... to Desperate Housewives.”
Hatcher's pride in the show is evident. She says, "Whether it be comedy or drama or physical comedy, I feel like the stories make sense. I think it will be better than some other big finales."
