"[There are] no catfights on the set [of Desperate Housewives]. I'm not anorexic. I don't make $285,000 an episode. I haven't renegotiated my contract. I'm not trying to get off the show because I want to do movies," she says.
Teri's love life has also attracted a lot of unwanted attention. In March 2006, she was photographed kissing American Idol host Ryan Seacrest on a secluded beach. Oprah wants to know...what's the deal with that?
"It's such a non-story" Teri says. "All the things you read in the tabloids about me and men are really non-stories."
Teri says she and Ryan were set up by a mutual friend, and after two group dinners, they met for a lunch date at an out-of-the-way location. "Interestingly enough, I haven't seen him since that day," she says. "We knew that the [pictures] had been taken, which must have bothered him enough. An hour after he dropped me off, he called to say, 'I don't think I can do this with you.'"
