Over the past weekend, the stars of Desperate Housewives called it, “A Wrap!” After eight seasons the soapy nighttime series, which will airs its final episode on ABC on Sunday, May 13th, bids farewell. To mark the occasion, the sexy stars of the series gathered for their official wrap party at the W Hotel in Hollywood.

As many of the series regulars and recurring stars stopped by including: Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, Brenda Strong, Vanessa Williams, Doug Savant,  Mike Denton, Kevin Rahm and Tuc Watkins, conspicuously missing were two of the leading women of Wisteria Lane!  Yup both, Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross were no shows!  But why?  It did seem odd that the gals did not make an appearance since they were two of the main “faces” of the series since the beginning.  Several sources reported online that calls to their reps about it offered no comment or information.

As for series star Eva Longoria, she will still be Housewives’ involved as she is one of the co-producers on Desperate Housewives creator, Marc Cherry’s new upcoming primetime soap, Devious Maids, which will also co-star soap icon, Susan Lucci.  Eva told The Hollywood Reporter on wearing her upcoming producing hat, “I’m a control freak. I’d much rather have more participation in the outcome of the product than as an actor. As an actor, you get in front of the camera and say your lines and hope the part comes out well. As a producer, you really get to control that.”

Now after the jump, check out our photo gallery from the Desperate Housewives wrap party and let us know which character from Wisteria Lane, you will miss the most?

It’s sad that after 8 years of working together Hatcher and Cross didn’t show out of respect for their colleagues. Maybe they were worn out and sad about the show ending. I don’t know. I stopped caring about and watching DH years ago. DH will live on in reruns, unlike daytime soaps.

LOVED Desperate Housewives. The one “soap” I could get my husband to watch with me. We will miss it. Hope “Devious Maids” doesn’t end up on ABC. I’m really looking forward to it, but I boycott all things ABC & Disney except GH & SOAPNet.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
