LATEST: Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan refused to eat dog food yesterday (19OCT06), despite being at an event promoting Dine With Your Dog Day. The actress wasn't the only person who turned down the opportunity - fellow dog lover The Exorcist star Linda Blair also refused, because she is a vegetarian. Sheridan said, "This is not (US TV show) FEAR FACTOR." The pair were at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel event in Los Angeles, two days ahead of tomorrow's (21OCT06) Dine With Your Dog Day. However, others including Little House On The Prairie actress Melissa Gilbert did eat pooch food.
