Housewives not desperate for Playboy
13:30 14 March 2005
'Desperate Housewives' gorgeous babes were forced to turn down a £5million offer to pose nude for Playboy after Teri Hatcher refused to strip for the magazine.
Playboy boss Hugh Hefner offered the huge sum to the US show's five beautiful stars, Hatcher, Eva Longoria, Nicolette Sheridan, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, to appear in a special edition.
However, although some of the actresses were reportedly keen to strip for the shoot, Hatcher, who previously bared all for her role in James Bond movie 'Tomorrow Never Dies' - turned down the offer.
She is quoted by Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "I looked at it seriously but it's inappropriate. It's just an opportunity to see celebrities without their clothes."
Earlier this month, it was revealed Hatcher is earning a staggering £150,000 per episode, following the phenomenal success of the first series.
The 40-year-old actress - who pocketed a "meagre" £20,000 for each hour-long show during the first series - was rewarded by bosses for signing up for a second series with an incredible 650 per cent pay rise after becoming the show's main star.
Meanwhile, her co-stars, who used to earn just £970 for each episode, also received undisclosed pay rises as well as a new car each.
