Parker Missed Out On Hatcher's Role
Desperate Housewives creator MARC CHERRY admits he wrote the role of single mother SUSAN MAYER with Parker in mind, but she turned down the role, leaving Hatcher to play her and win a Golden Globe last year (05).
Parker explains, "I am so flattered to hear him (Cherry) say that. At the time, I felt I could not serve the show as well as someone else could. And I was right.
"Teri is so great in that role and I could not imagine anyone else playing that part. We all ended up where we belong."
