Since Teri Hatcher is one of my favorite talk-show guests, I’m posting her very funny description of her date with Ryan Seacrest below. Hatcher told Wendy Williams that she and Seacrest were set up on a blind date by a friend who is now “off the blind date set-up list.” Yikes! To be fair, though — didn’t she know what she was getting into when she consented to the date? Or did her friend simply say, “I’m going to set you up with this really cheesy guy who hosts this really cheesy show?”

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Twitter is a PR death-trap. While I think it’s a great opportunity to connect with fans, it’s also a great opportunity to ruin your image. Because there’s no middle-man (i.e. a publicist) to control celebrity tweets, stars reveal a damaging amount of information. So far my list of culprits include: LeAnn Rimes; John Cusack; Sarah Shahi; Teri Hatcher; and now — Mariah Carey. Carey recently posted a picture of her pregnant belly painted as an Easter egg, which is cute in theory, but inappropriate overall. Mariah Carey is a huge star, and the less private she becomes — the more she demeans her professional value.

If you’ve been watching Desperate Housewives lately, you might have noticed the mysterious absence of Mike Delfino (played by James Denton). I call it “mysterious” because there’s no logical excuse for his disappearance, other than that he’s a bad husband. His wife (played by Teri Hatcher), is in search of a kidney, and her husband is never seen at the hospital. So where is he? My guess is that the powers-that-be cut his episodes this season in hopes of saving money. Perhaps they figured he wasn’t an integral character, and they could do without him. But since it doesn’t make any sense from a writing perspective, I think it’s a gigantic misfire on Marc Cherry’s part. Either explain his absence with a sensible storyline, or remove him from the show altogether. But it just doesn’t make sense to use him so sparingly, especially when his wife is ill.
