Former Knots Landing bombshell Nicollette Sheridan plays Edie, the sex-crazed divorcee of Wisteria Lane in Desperate Housewives. Edie is Susan's (Teri Hatcher) archrival—both women are vying for the affections of the hunky new plumber in their subdivision.
"I could not have more fun than this character," says Nicollette. "She's strong. She's smart. She's a minx. … You keep picking on Edie. You know she [Susan, Teri Hatcher's character] is gonna win! She's so sweet. She's so gorgeous."
