Rumor Control: "Desperate" To Set the Record Straight
March 7, 2005

The "Desperate Housewives" have become a bona fide hit, but with the success, comes the false rumors. Luckily, the stars know where to turn to set the record straight: "Extra's" Rumor Control.

Rumors are swirling that Teri Hatcher is now getting mega bucks for her role on the ABC hit. So is she getting a new deal for her "Desperate" role?

Yes, reports indicate that Teri's new deal gives her a raise from $38,000 to $285,000 per episode. So we went right to the sexy source at the Academy of Magical Arts Awards Show to get the details. But, "I don't even know how much money I make," was all Teri told us.

Did Nicolette Sheridan lose her shirt in Vegas?

No, but the sexy star was spotted gambling in Sin City over the weekend. She joined stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Nicky Hilton and "Alias" star Michael Vartan at the third anniversary bash for Bellagio's nightclub, Light.

"It's a lot of fun, great people and poker players," Sheridan said.

Did Eva Longoria beat up the paparazzi at her 30th birthday?

Yes -- well sort of -- the paparazzi came in the form of a piŅata. Eva shared a kiss with good friend JC Chasez and a group hug with "Desperate" neighbors Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, and then she went to work on the piŅata.

But beware, the whack she put on the paparazzi piŅata shows that even though the diva is petite, she packs a powerful punch.
