Screen beauty Teri Hatcher is elated so many of her fellow actresses are divas - because their antics helped land her a role on her upcoming soap opera Desperate Housewives.

The former LOIS + CLARK star, 39, will be making a return to TV screens in the anticipated series, which is set to make its debut next month (OCT04), and she's aware that she won a role on the show because other actresses made demands bosses were not prepared to meet.

She says, "I know there are people who didn't get my part because they wanted a bigger trailer. I think, 'Thank God they wanted that bigger trailer.'

"There are lots of things that fell into place for me to make this happen. I'm not trying to be corny or weird about it. I'm just grateful."
