Actress Teri Hatcher banned her Desperate Housewives co-stars from accepting a $9.5 million (GBP5 million) offer to pose naked for men's magazine Playboy.

Porn mogul Hugh Hefner asked the hit TV show's female stars, Hatcher, Nicolette Sheridan, MARCIA CROSS, Eva Longoria and Felicity Huffman to strip off for a special edition of the raunchy publication.

But Hatcher was disgusted by the proposition, so warned the cast not to cheapen their images by agreeing to the photo shoot.

She says, "I looked at it seriously, but it's inappropriate.

"It's just an opportunity to see celebrities without their clothes."
