It appears Edie Britt’s return to Desperate Housewives may not be a permanent one after all.
Despite questions about Nicollette Sheridan’s status after last season, her character surprised neighbors when she came back to Wisteria Lane with a new man on her arm. Unfortunately, it’s her that hubby of hers that may bring about her permanent exit.
Reps for both the network and the actress confirm that Sheridan will be leaving at the end of this season. Although the details on her departure are not entirely known, E! Online claims psycho Dave will attempt to kill her. (Whether he succeeds is another question.)
According to Nicollette’s spokesperson, her final scenes will air in April.

What could have prompted doll maker Madame Alexander to create a line of Desperate Housewives dolls? The leading ladies—Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Nicollette Sheridan—will each have a likeness of themselves in 16-inch plastic. I ask you, who will these dolls be marketed to? Are they simply a novelty item, or does the doll maker actually expect these things to fly off of the shelves? We shall find out soon enough, as the line will be featured in the spring 2007 issue of Fashion Doll Quarterly. As action figures and dolls go, these hardly look like their real-life counterparts, except possibly for Bree Van de Kamp, whose red hair makes her the most recognizable. Even die-hard fans fail to see the marketing opportunity with the dolls. One posting on desperateblog.com said, “I can see crazy fans like myself getting them as keepsakes but I just don’t think the dolls will be all that popular.” You never know though, with 21.3 million viewers each week in their third season, maybe someone will be interested in playing with the ladies of Wisteria Lane. Er, um, playing with the dolls, that is.
