Dana Delany Says Housewives Losing an Icon in Nicollette Sheridan

Posted on

Desperate Housewives star Dana Delany is sounding off about Nicollette Sheridan‘s upcoming departure from the show — and she says they’re losing an icon.

“The Edie character — and Nicollette in particular — is such an iconic figure,” she told PEOPLE Thursday at the “Oscar Wilde: Honoring The Irish in Film” event in Los Angeles. “She’s a classic — a classic femme fatale.”

Could Edie ever be replaced? “I don’t think there’s a lot of women like that left anymore,” Delany says. “So, I think it will be a void for a while.”

With news of Sheridan’s departure, her rep released a statement, saying, “She had a great time on the show and is looking forward to her next project.”

And Delany is echoing the sentiment that there are no hard feelings: “Nicollette is such a classy person that I think she’s already like, ‘Okay, fine. Moving on.'” — Scott Huver
