Housewives in pay row
16:30 18 March 2005
Teri Hatcher is at the centre of a cash row between the 'Desperate Housewives' cast - after allegedly indicating that she sees herself as the star of the show.
The brunette babe - who plays single mother Susan Mayer in the hit TV series - has left her co-stars furious after pulling out of group salary negotiations, claiming her fee should be settled individually.
A source is quoted by Britain's Daily Record newspaper as saying: "They all discussed it and they'd ask for a quarter of a million dollars an episode.
"But Teri blew them off. She feels the situation is more like 'Seinfeld' than 'Friends' - she is the star and the rest of the cast can fend for themselves."
Sexy Teri launched her career in the early 90s playing Lois Lane in smash-hit series 'The New Adventures of Super-Man' - before taking a ten year career break to raise her daughter.
But since reviving her acting career, the 40-year-old star has reportedly angered her four co-stars with her diva-like behaviour and self-important attitude.
Nicolette Sheridan, who plays man-eater Edie Britt, allegedly sniped to an American magazine: "I'm not sure why she gets so much attention. She is not really the prettiest one, not by a nose - literally."
