Some of the lead actors of the TV series "Desperate Housewives" are planning for a virtual reunion. The actors aim to raise fund for coronavirus relief.
Deadline magazine reported that cast members- Marcia Cross, Vanessa Williams, Brenda Strong, Dana Delaney and Eva Longoria will reunite this weekend for a livestream episode of "Stars in the House," an online show.
However, three stars of the hit show, will not partake in the reunion: Felicity Huffman, Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan.
Last October, Felicity Huffman served 11 days at the Federal Correctional Institution in California, for her involvement in the college admissions scandal. The actress pleaded guilty in May to paying disgraced admissions consultant Rick Singer $15,000 to have a proctor change her daughter Sophia's SAT answers after she took the test.
Huffman's Desperate Housewives co-stars publicly supported her throughout the trial. The series creator Marc Cherry wrote a letter about the actress detailing how amiable she always was during the taping of the series. Eva Longoria was also one of 27 people who submitted a letter to the judge in support of Huffman.
"Desperate Housewives" aired from 2004 to 2012. The pilot episode premiered with the death of Mary Alice, who was played by Brenda Strong. Strong continued to narrate the series as the ladies of Wisteria Lane and their families dealt with their own troubles.
