'Desperate Housewives' James Denton: The funeral is next, 'it's heartbreaking,' he says on 'The View'

"Desperate Housewives" took a left turn Sunday night (March 11) as it hurtles towards its series finale - it killed off Susan's long-time love Mike Delfino, gunned down on their porch. To add insult to injury for fans, the death was revealed last week during Nicolette Sheridan's trial with "Housewives" creator Marc Cherry. Actor James Denton, who plays Delfino, was on "The View" Monday, where he spoke about his end on the show."It was kind of sad ... my wife called me, she said, 'I cried,'" says Denton."That spectre of always waiting to be killed off on that show [was always there], so it's funny to make it so close to the end," he continues. "Honestly, my concern was for Teri [Hatcher] because Susan, I think people really pull for her and want her to be happy. Teri has that great quality that people just want Susan to be happy and now she's got six... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/03/desperate-housewives-james-denton-the-funeral-is-next-its-heartbreaking-he-says-on-the-view.html

'Desperate Housewives' death: What did you think of James Denton's violent exit?

Sunday night's "Desperate Housewives" episode delivered a shocking twist -- well, sort of shocking. If you were following executive producer Marc Cherry's trial, you already knew that Mike Delfino (James Denton) would die a violent death this week. Hopefully, though, some of you were still surprised when you watched it all go down.Mike was gunned down by a mobster while on the porch of the home he shares with wife Susan (Teri Hatcher). Susan and Mike haven't had a particularly easy romance since their attraction began in Season 1, when he was just the friendly neighborhood plumber. They ultimately married in Season 6. The porch was a rather iconic location for the two, so his ultimate bloody death on the deck made for a rather twisted full-circle plot. "It was sort of fitting," Denton told EW when discussing his character's death. "Mike spends a lot of time in doorways. He hides in a lot of... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/03/desperate-housewives-death-what-did-you-think-of-james-dentons-violent-exit.html
