Teri Hatcher Says Goodbye On Facebook To 'Desperate Housewives' Co-Star James Denton

Teri Hatcher has bid a fond farewell to her long-time screen companion James Denton.

Millions of Desperate Housewives fans watched as Denton's character Mike Delfino was dramatically killed off at the weekend, leaving a bereft Susan (Hatcher) in deep grief, and it seems the actress is feeling equally bereft off-screen.

On her Facebook page, Hatcher has posted a picture of the pair of them on, judging by the tomato ketchup on each of their tops, their last day of filming together. She wrote:

"Its official. Wanted to share this with you fans. Shot on the set getting ready for the last scene... I think we made a cute couple. Thank you Jamie for just....well, everything."

She added of her co-star:

"While I was sobbing over a coffin, James was in Paris doing a modeling shoot. Good for him !!! Now that they've killed him early, lets hope he gets a jump on a new creative venture. He sure deserves it. And can I just say, he looks more handsome than ever. Not desperate anymore!! He's the best. So sad sack Susan is alone once again. Good idea or bad? What are your thoughts?"

Desperate Housewives may find Delfino is not the only character to make a dramatic exit in the coming weeks, as the series prepares to sign off for good after eight turmoil-filled seasons.
