Dana Delany Ponders Future on Desperate Housewives

Warning: Those who wish to remain in the dark about all Desperate Housewives spoilers should stop reading now. Okay? All set? Let's go on...

As previously reported, Dana Delany might be exiting the series in order to star in Body of Evidence, a new drama on ABC.

However, even if the Emmy Award winner does agree to switch shows, there’s no guarantee the pilot will actually get picked up.

“You never know with pilots,” Delany tells Entertainment Weekly in a new interview. “Many of them never get off the ground, so all this talk could be rendered [pointless]. But I am realistically hopeful. I love the [Evidence] character, so I hope it all works out.”

Sounds like she has one foot out the Desperate door, doesn't it?

A Mistake?

Ideally, however, Delany says she wouldn't leave the long-running hit for good.

“[Series creator] Marc Cherry [promised] he would not kill me off and told me I was always welcome to come back to the Lane,” she says. “I would love for Katherine to pop into town and say hi to the gang every once in awhile.”

Might Katherine and Robin actually stick as a couple, prompting them to leave town together? It's not a bad scenario, Delany admits.

“This might actually be her thing. It may make her happier than she has ever been. She does not have the best track record with men to begin with.”

Desperate Housewives Quotes

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


So you're just not gonna talk to me, is that it? Fine. I don't need to talk. Okay. Yes, I had a little affair. It wasn't the best thing to do, and I'm not proud of it. But it's not the worst thing that could have happened. Nobody died. Oh, don't be such a martyr, Carlos. Okay, it takes two people. How many times did you go off on your little business trips and leave me alone? See, so technically, you cheated, too. It's just your mistress was your work.
