‘Wives’ dig up some dirt

Acad. of Television Arts & Sciences gets 'Desperate'

Teri Hatcher was brave rather than “Desperate” Tuesday night in L.A.

On hand at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to partake in a panel discussion about the phenomenon that is “Desperate Housewives,” thesp sauntered down the chilly red carpet sans jacket.

The only thing keeping her warm were the frequent hugs she and her female cohorts exchanged as they made their way into the Leonard H. Goldenson Theater.

Before taking the stage — adorned with artificial grass and a tiny white picket fence to evoke the setting of Wisteria Lane — the only thing the “Housewives” were desperate for was the ladies room.

It was there that Marcia Cross was seen giving her cheeks a break from all that smiling while she regrouped with her publicist, and Nicollette Sheridan was overheard complaining about the unflattering florescent lighting in public bathrooms — the scourge of women the world over.

Moderating the panel was Leeza Gibbons, who was dying for some dirt. Among the juicy tidbits: Hatcher got some serious action on Valentine’s Day, when she spent the whole day shooting a makeout montage with co-star James Denton; Denton’s wife was at home watching “The Bachelorette.”

Meanwhile, show creator Marc Cherry revealed the secret of the chemistry between this close-knit cast.

“We were just a bunch of people who were out of work who got together to put on a show,” said Cherry.
