The street on ABC’s "Desperate Housewives" is about to get a little less crowded in May, reports Entertainment Weekly.
Emmy-award winning actress Drea de Mateo is leaving "Housewives" after just one season.
Marc Cherry, "Housewives" creator, wanted it known that de Mateo has not been fired. She had only committed to one season because her home is in New York and the show is filmed in Los Angeles.
Cherry intimated that de Mateo’s character will have a dramatic exit, perhaps involving the new actor on the show, John Barrowman.
