Nicolette Sheridan Explains Departure From Desperate Housewives

Viewers were left in the dark when news broke that Nicolette Sheridan would be killed off Desperate Housewives.

Speaking to TV Guide, Nicolette Sheridan opens up on her departure from a show she’s been on for five seasons.

“I said, ‘OK, sayonara. It’s been a great ride. Thank you,’” Sheridan tells TV Guide.

“[Killing off Edie] was a risky decision that could have devastating ramifications,” she adds.

She also thinks that creator of the show, Marc Cherry, often ignored her. She says, “When you have a jewel, why not polish it and put it out there for all to see?”

So why did Nicolette get the boot from the show?

Well, it might be something so simple as budget cuts. Marc Cherry says, “Edie’s already slept with most of the guys on the street and has caused about as many problems as she could.”

Also, “There has been tremendous pressure put on me to cut costs…the network is saying to all the shows, ‘the company is really hurting financially. You must find a way to produce these shows more cheaply.”

Can we expect anything new from the show now that Nicolette has gotten the boot? “We will find a new kind of sexiness coming through Wisteria Lane. What I won’t do is cast another forty something sexy blonde,” Cherry says.

Guess we gotta stay tuned to see if there is gonna be any more excitement on the show.
