Felicity Huffman - Felicity Huffman Has Gas Plan Following Housewives

Felicity Huffman has joked she plans to open a chain of supermarkets and gas stations if she can't find any other acting roles after 'Desperate Housewives' ends.

The 48-year-old actress - who plays harassed mother Lynette Scavo in the show - is saddened by creator MARC CHERRY's decision to axe the show after the eighth series and now fears she may struggle to get other parts because she will be typecast.

But Felicity has come up with a business plan if her acting days are over.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association cocktail party, she told The Hollywood Reporter: "You go into acting jail at the end of these things because it's hard for anyone to see you as anything other than Lynette Scavo or whatever it is. So I think it's unwise to look at the carnage around you of past TV actresses and go, 'Well it's not going to happen to me.'

"It probably will, which is why I'm planning on opening supermarkets and gas stations."

Felicity also revealed Marc had to force himself to keep away from the set because he was afraid he would inadvertently let the news slip to Felicity and her co-stars Teri Hatcher, MARCIA CROSS and Eva Longoria before the official announcement.

She said: "He can't seem to keep his mouth shut so he had to keep himself away from set."

Meanwhile, Dana Delaney is hoping to reprise her role of Katherine Mayfair - who left for Paris in season six with her lesbian lover Robin Gallagher (Julie Benz) - so viewers will find out what happened to Katherine after she left Wisteria Lane.

She said: "I would love to come back for one episode just to sort of wrap things up with Katherine. I want to know that she's happy. A happy lesbian. Wouldn't that be nice?"

However, rumours that Nicollette Sheridan - who is suing Marc for £12 million over unfair dismissal claims - could return in the final episode as man-eater Edie Britt were dashed as when Nicollette was asked if she would make a Cameo she replied "Edie's dead".
