How exactly Edie Britt will be out of frame from "Desperate Housewives" is finally revealed. Warning, spoiler ahead. The character played by Nicollette Sheridan will leave the show by being killed off, suffering from the jolt from a power line.
National Enquirer is the first to report this and no confirmation from the studio is given yet. Edie is said to experience a 'final destination'-kind of syndrome, surviving a car crash only to die from a live wire moments later. The episode will be aired in April.
Sheridan is taking her departure from the show with her head held up high. "I'm OK with leaving," the actress said. "I'm on to the next project and done with this show." Her co-star Eva Longoria meanwhile, is not so keen on the idea. "I love her so much as a person, and I love the character of Edie Britt, that I can't imagine the show without her," Eva told Extra.
No clue yet of what 'new project' Sheridan will take but Longoria said, "She's looking forward to new adventures, and she's a star, so she's going to go on to great things."
