    Default Dana Delany: 'Desperate Housewives weightloss is competitive'

    DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES actress DANA DELANY does not worry about staying thin - because she has seen her skinny co-stars become hung up on losing weight.

    The actress appeared in the fourth season of the ABC show last summer (Aug07) and has now become a regular character in season five.

    And Delany admits that when she first joined the cast, she was taken aside by one of the wardrobe designers and warned not to fall prey to the pressure of staying slim, like other actresses in the series.

    She says, "When the costume designer said to me, 'Don't get the Desperate Housewives disease' I didn't know what it was. But she said everyone loses so much weight when they come on the show. There is an unspoken competitive weightloss thing. Even the actress who plays my daughter lost 10 pounds."

    But the star insists that she didn't fall prey to the "disease" and actually gained weight during her stint on set.

    And she admits there is only one star in the show who doesn't struggle with her weight. She adds, "I've known Teri Hatcher for years and she has always been a naturally skinny girl."

    Not really. Slender but never really 'skinny' from what I've seen.

    I thought that Terri Hatcher had admitted to anorexia when she admitted being molested as a child???? .... or maybe not...

    Dana Delaney said something really interesting around the time that her movie "Exit to Eden" came out. It was something like, "a lot boys and men raised on 'Playboy' are going to be in for a rude surprise when they actually see a real woman naked." She was commenting on the fact that people are often exposed to idealized unattainable bodies, and have unrealistic expectations about what their mates should look like.

    In "Eden", Delaney is shown full frontal, and was a little curvier than I expected. But I thought she looked fantastic. And she seems almost like an intellectual compared to the typical Hollywood celeb.
