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.

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
