Wisteria Lane farewells Edie

THE cast and crew of "Desperate Housewives" bid adieu to one of the show's leading original cast members at the weekend.

Nicollette Sheridan, who plays Wisteria Lane's saucy "Edie," made her final appearance in the series in an episode that aired yesterday.

Co-star Teri Hatcher, whose sweet "Susan" was often at odds with Edie, got misty-eyed when recalling the filming of Sheridan's final episode.

"I made a scrapbook as my sort of parting gift and it reminded me of how great those two characters were together," she said.

Less Sheridan, most of the "Housewives" principals participated in a panel discussion on Saturday at PaleyFest, an annual TV festival.

Sheridan's relationship with "Housewives" creator Marc Cherry has been described as contentious. Sheridan recently told "TV Guide" she felt "Housewives'" writers were unjustly ignoring Edie.

But cast mates on Saturday said that Sheridan's last days on the set were amiable and professional.

"Her attitude made them completely bearable," noted actor James Denton, whose plumber "Mike" was the longtime object of Edie's affections. "It could have been tough and sad but she was so great."

Denton noted that Sheridan made a point to thank the show's writers and cast, who were gathered at the table-read of the script for the first episode she will not be in.

"She said, 'While you're all together I'm here to say thank you for everything. You guys are great. You guys are awesome,'" Denton said. "She walked out of the room and Felicity (Huffman) looked at me and said, 'Classy,' and it sure was."
