Marcia Cross

Creator of Desperate Housewives has written a letter in defence of Felicity Huffman amid her college admissions scandal case, according to Us Weekly.

Marc Cherry is one of 27 people who have written letters backing up the actress, detailing how one Desperate Housewives star had 'big behavioural problems' and caused tension on-set among the cast.

We're not entirely sure how pointing out another actress's behavioural issues excuses Huffman's illegal scheme to doctor her daughter's university entrance exams, but whatever…

Cherry’s letter detailed how one actress was obnoxious and rude to cast members but 56-year-old Huffman refused to stoop down to her level.

The hit show also starred Eva Longoria, Terri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Nicollette Sheridan, and ran from 2004 until 2012.

The showrunner wrote about the unnamed actress:

"She was a big star with some big behavioral problems. Everyone tried their hardest to get along with this woman over the course of the show. It was impossible."

57-year-old Cherry praised the way Huffman handled the actress’ troublesome attitude as a testament to her character.

"Things went from bad to worse. Felicity still insisted on saying “Good morning” to this actress, even though she knew she wouldn’t get a response," he claimed.

"I found out about this and asked Felicity about it. She smiled and said, “Just because that woman’s determined to be rude, doesn’t mean she can keep me from being polite”."

Cherry's statement comes after Eva Longoria wrote a letter on Huffman’s behalf claiming she was ‘bullied’ and ‘tortured’ by a colleague on set. (It's rumoured to be Teri Hatcher).

 The John Wick actress wrote:

"There was a time I was being bullied at work by a co-worker. I dreaded the days I had to work with that person because it was pure torture. Until one day, Felicity told the bully, “enough” and it all stopped."

She added: "Felicity could feel that I was riddled with anxiety even though I never complained or mentioned the abuse to anyone. ‘I know I would not have survived those 10 years if it wasn’t for the friendship of Felicity."

Huffman pleaded guilty in May to paying $15,000 for someone else to sit her daughter’s university entrance exams, and is now awaiting sentencing.

Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross – or Bree Van De Kamp to fans – has revealed she is "happy and healthy"  after taking to social media to reveal she had been battling anal cancer.

Actually, what spurned her to reveal more details to fans was after she recently shared a post on Instagram lamenting the loss of her hair after going through chemotherapy. The actress hadn't spoken of her cancer diagnosis before, so naturally, fans were concerned.

“So grateful and happy to be alive but sad that my hair fell out and is about 1 inch long now and looks cra cra,” wrote Cross. “Anyone else have #hairloss due to #cancer? Talk to me. I feel you.”

In the snap, we see Cross looking beautiful (her skin is incredible) and sad as we get a glimpse of her colouring her hair, lamenting how it used to be prior to her cancer diagnosis.

After followers responded in droves, she posted a second photo, reassuring everyone that she was happily, cancer-free despite her hard journey.

“I am so sorry my post wasn’t clear,” she wrote, in response to a flurry of worried messages. “I am POST cancer. All good now. Hard journey, but I am HEALTHY, happy, and more present and grateful than ever. Thank you from the bottom of my ever expanding heart for all of your LOVE.”

However, it was her third message that left many feeling inspired as she explained how liberated and overwhelmed she felt at the outpouring of love and support.

“After posting a picture of myself here and uttering the words #cancer and #hairloss, I felt liberated, deliriously free and completely me,” she said.

In exposing her concerns, her fears, she said it gave her the powerful boost she needed to keep moving forward, living and being happy.

"How or why this simple act gave me such a powerful lift I did not question, but I thanked God or whatever gave me the internal push to move forward and expose myself.”

Cross continued: “I certainly wasn’t expecting the response of love and kindness that flowed to me,” she said.

“I am ecstatically alive."

After revealing that she had anal cancer (with a bit of humour thrown in!), fellow survivors chimed in to offer support and encouragement. 

“Anal cancer survivor here! Difficult one to talk about, glad you are feeling better," wrote one.

“You look gorgeous! And if I didn’t lose hair to chemo, I would NEVER had nerve to try a Mohawk which is now my hairstyle! I used to have beautiful long red hair too, but ahh well, life changes. I’m so glad you’re sharing your story openly… here’s to #survivors,” said another.

We're glad the actress is on the mend and commend her for her moving words.
