What, now everyone thinks their TV show should become a movie? The success of the Veronica Mars movie coupled with the recent release of more Arrested Development episodes might be putting crazy ideas in crazy heads that should know better. Extra sat down with Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher, who admitted that she's on board with the idea of a Desperate Housewives movie. She thinks fans are interested to see what the ladies of Wisteria Lane are up to, explaining:
I love the fans of the show so much, and they don't seem to be done with those characters. I think it would be great for them. If a script ever came across my lap, I would read it, hoping that it would work out, but I don't really see that happening.
So, the bad news is that Hatcher's into it, the good news is that it doesn't sound like it'll ever come to fruition.
The best thing Hatcher and the rest of the Desperate Housewives cast and producers could do for the fans is just leave well enough alone. The show and its actors were awarded a total of seven Emmys, three Golden Globes, and two People's Choice Awards and was on for eight seasons — let's be real, trying to recreate that magic is an impossible, and probably worthless, task.
Plus, nothing can top the show's extremely popular spinoffs. With the Real Housewives franchises taking over on Bravo, fans of the original Desperate Housewives now have real, oh-shit-I-might-be-going-to-jail drama to hold onto. There's just no way that Susan, Lynette, Bree, and Gabrielle's scripted lives in a movie could be more entertaining than Teresa, Jacqueline, Caroline, and Melissa's only half-scripted lives in New Jersey.
Now, if Teri wanted to join the Real Housewives, that's something we can get behind.
