Sorry dudes, there will be less sexy car washes by a leggy blonde on Desperate Housewives moving forward. Actress Nicolette Sheridan is leaving the ABC dramedy after five years, reports TVGuide.com. Sheridan was one of the original housewives, having been on the show since its onset.
"[Nicolette] had a great time on the show and is looking forward to her next project," Sheridan's rep told the site.
On Desperate Housewives, Sheridan plays Edie Britt, the man-eating fifth housewife behind Susan (Teri Hatcher), Lynette (Felicity Huffman), Bree (Marcia Cross), and Gabrielle (Eva Longoria Parker). Edie's current husband, Dave (Neal McDonough), is a central character in the current season.
ABC has not announced how or when Edie's character will be written off the program.
