The December 2 episode of Desperate Housewives
, in which a tornado wreaked havoc on Wisteria Lane, has left viewers speculating as to who survived the natural disaster, as well as who else perished. Show star Felicity Huffman
, whose scream at the end of the episode proved chilling for those who tuned in, has weighed in on the matter, joking that her character's rowdy children should be the ones to bite the dust.
"I wanted some of Lynette's kids to die; is that terrible to say?" Huffman asked USA Today
. "They're all lovely little actors, but there's such anticipation that all of Lynette's family won't make it back."
This “anticipation” is understandable, especially when one looks back to the devastation that the tornado caused on the suburban neighborhood.
"We had to have a safety meeting because you couldn't get out,” Felicity Huffman said, remembering the post-tornado Desperate Housewives
set. “They had hidden paths out of the set in case there was a fire… There were cars on rooftops — just amazing."
The second part of the episode has yet to be given an air date, which means that fans will have to wait for an indefinite period of time before they can find out who survived the tornado. However, one thing that viewers can be sure of is that they won't be seeing Sylvia (Melora Walters) and Victor (James Slattery) alive and breathing anymore, as the two were among the first casualties.
Meanwhile, things aren't looking too good for Felicity Huffman’s Desperate Housewives
costar Teri Hatcher. The 43-year-old actress is being sued by Hydroderm for over $2 million. The cosmetics company is claiming that Hatcher and her production company agreed not to promote competing products as part of a deal she signed with Hydroderm in 2005.
However, Hydroderm discovered last summer that Hatcher was endorsing a lip plumper from City Cosmetics, as well as its own product, Volumizing Lip Serum.
Hatcher's attorney responded by saying that his client has fulfilled all of her contractual obligations, and that the company is trying to take attention away from its failure to meet its end of the agreement.
