Nicollette Sheridan – Real Cougar Leaving Wisteria Lane

Nicollette Sheridan last will be leaving Desperate Housewives in April.  Yes, I admit I watch the show.  It's part of my Sunday night ritual of relaxation – Housewives followed by Brothers and Sisters.Cougar nicolle_sheridan240x320

Sheridan's character, Edie Britt, was a cougar before the word gained currency.  But she was also vulnerable and lonely, drawn to the wrong men (her current marriage to psychopath Dave Williams should be ending — badly — very soon).

It was probably inevitable that a central cast member would eventually be dropped, sent away or killed off. Creator Marc Cherry is always willing to gamble with the show’s formula, and he tends to rub out characters with gusto. They get shot by crazed women at the supermarket, or carried off by tornadoes. When Edie appeared to commit suicide at the end of season 3, I thought that very well might have been her end. She survived, of course. She’s Edie. Let’s hope Cherry has something suitably over-the-top planned for Ms. Britt.

Sheridan says, "she had a great time on the show and is looking forward to her next project,”
