'Housewife' slams teen TV
16:30 11 March 2005
'Desperate Housewives' star Nicolette Sheridan claims the show has become a huge hit because viewers became tired of watching teenagers with angst-ridden lives.
The blonde actress, who plays Edie Brit in the US series, believes older fans can relate more to the women of Wisteria Lane than the "kids" in shows like 'The OC' and 'Dawson's Creek' because they recognise themselves in the characters.
She said: "I think over the past few years there have been so many shows for teenagers that people got really bored with seeing them. It's much more interesting having an older group of women that all look good and all have skeletons in their closets."
Meanwhile, Nicolette has confessed she's a bit of a "loner".
The sexy star says she finds it hard to cope with her new-found fame because she likes her own company and keep her private life out of the public eye.
She told Britain's Heat magazine: "It's never been important to me to be a celebrity. I'm extremely private and can be a bit of a loner at times."
