Bosses on U.S. TV hit Desperate Housewives have come up with a steamy way to keep viewers interested following the departure of blonde bombshell Nicollette Sheridan - they are planning a passionate same-sex kiss between Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria PARKER.
The ABC show announced Sheridan, who plays Wisteria Lane's resident man-eater Edie Britt, would be written out of the show in the forthcoming season.
And to keep the show's ratings on top, TV execs have thought of a novel way of enticing TV fans to tune in - some girl-on-girl action, according to Celebuzz.com.
A source tells the website, "Anything is kind of possible right now. You've got Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice basically becoming one two-hour show, the longest Dancing With the Stars tease ever.
"I don't think a kiss between Eva and Teri's characters could be ruled out, especially if it keeps people interested in the show."
