Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher has spoken out about her unlikely friendship with former US President George Bush, boasting she's even stayed at the statesman's Maine home. Photos of the actress giving Bush a kiss on the cheek were splashed over newspapers around the globe last week (ends11FEB07), arousing huge curiosity. But Hatcher explains she's been pals with the ex-president for years after voicing support for a number of his humanitarian campaigns. She says, "He's wonderful to my family. I hope to be involved in many of his charities."
