Losing a Desperate Housewife

at . Comments

Call this the motherload of all Desperate Housewives spoilers, but we're about to lose one of the original housewives.  Nicolette Sheridan, who plays Edit Britt, is leaving the show according to what both ABC and her rep confirmed to TV Guide.

Although Edie has sort of always played the fifth wheel to the original four ladies, generally getting less screen time, this season has mostly revolved around her crazy, plotting husband, Dave.  We feel our favorite neighborhood tramp always brought something very unique to the show that will be missed.

Nicolette Sheridan as Edie Britt

So how do you guys think Edie will leave the show?  At the end of season four they had her moving away to Boston only to return in season five after the time jump.  Think they'll do something she can come back from or kill her off?  If they kill her off our money is on Dave for being the murderer.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.

Mike

(narrating) The world is filled with good fathers. How do we recongnize them? They are the ones who are missed so terribly, everything falls apart in their absence. (Shot of Andrew and Bree packing his suitcase, placing a photo of Rex inside last.) They are the ones who love us, long before we even arrive. (Shot of Carlos smiling as he rubs Gabrielle's stomach.) They are the ones who come looking for us, when we can't find our way home. (Shot of Mike walking Bongo as he looks at a flyer of Zach's) Yes, the world is filled with good fathers. And the best are the ones who make the women in their lives feel like good mothers (Shot of Tom comforting Lynette as she cries)
