The Desperate Housewives cast is holding a virtual reunion for Stars in the House – but two of the leads won’t be involved.

Good friends support each other after something bad has happened. Great friends act as if nothing has happened.

But best friends come together for a live stream episode of Stars in the House to raise funds for The Actor’s Fund’s coronavirus pandemic relief efforts.

The Desperate Housewives reunion is taking place some 15 years after the drama first aired, with the ladies of Wisteria Lane coming together on April 12.

Well, half of them will. Marcia Cross (Bree), Vanessa Williams (Renee), Brenda Strong (Mary Alice), Dana Delany (Katherine) and Eva Longoria (Gabrielle) are all listed to appear, however neither Teri Hatcher or Felicity Huffman – who played Susan and Lynett respectively – will have a role, according to Deadline.

Why will neither Teri Hatcher or Felicity Huffman appear in the Desperate Housewives virtual reunion?

It’s unclear why the pair are not in the line-up, but given the Huffman’s recent prison sentence and the hostility that allegedly plagued the cast off-camera, perhaps it’s understandable.

Last year, Huffman’s legal woes played out to the delight of entertainment columnists and paparazzi.

The actor was led out of her Hollywood Hills home by FBI agents on March 12, 2019, accused of making a $15,000 payoff so a crooked test proctor could tinker with her daughter’s SAT results.

As the college admission scandal unfolded, many of the Desperate Housewives cast came out to support Huffman. She eventually pleaded guilty and served 11 days in prison.

Hatcher’s relationship with her cast mates was fodder for gossip magazines for years.

Accusations of bullying were pinned on her, with rumours of arguments between the cast mirroring the jarring, motion sickness-inducing plot twists of Desperate Housewives.

Of course, it hasn’t been confirmed why the cast mates are unable to make the episode, but the apparent rifts between them have been well documented for years, showing that even the most desperate life is oh, so wonderful.

But only a lucky few realise the gift they’ve been given.

Most people just go on day after day trying in vain to keep secrets that will never stay hidden.
