'Desperate Housewives' Cancellation Leaves Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher Speechless

The official announcement that the "Desperate Housewives" of Wisteria Lane would be getting the axe came as a shock. But what's even more shocking? The usually chatty bunch is staying completely mum on the cancellation.

“I can tell you I have not spoken to anyone about how I feel,” Teri Hatcher tells me. “Gotta run. I'm on my way to work now.”

Likewise, Eva Longoria tells me through a spokesperson, “We don’t have a statement. Eva has been out of the country.”

So why are the ladies staying so quiet?

“I think they are still all in shock,” a show insider tells me. “At the moment emotions are running high and it is probably best for everyone to say nothing until they can get some distance from the devastating news."

The show's creator, Marc Cherry confirmed at a TV Critics Association Panel that the cast was in shock when news of the cancellation broke, saying, "It was actually bittersweet and lovely, because the women knew it was a possibility, but they didn't know, so there was a touch of shock with everyone I spoke [to].”

But now that the end is in sight, insiders tell me to expect the show's outrageous plot points to get even crazier: “Everyone wants to go out with a bang. We have no intention of disappointing people like 'The Sopranos' did. This ending will make TV history.”

I can’t wait. Plus, Hatcher promises that when she does have something to say, you'll hear it on HuffPost Celebrity first.
