BRAVO'S "INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO" WELCOMES "DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES" STAR TERI HATCHER AS SHE TALKS IN-DEPTH ABOUT HER LIFE AND CAREER

EPISODE PREMIERES MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 8-9 PM ET/PT

New York, NY � August 31, 2006 - Bravo's 12-time Emmy-nominated series "Inside the Actors Studio" welcomes actress Teri Hatcher. Host James Lipton sits down for a candid tell-all of Teri's life and career as one of Hollywood's most talked-about actresses today. The episode premieres Monday, September 18, 8-9 PM ET/PT.

Growing up in Sunnyvale, California, Hatcher was a serious dancer before turning to acting. She first enrolled in a six-week acting program at American Conservatory Theater, where Annette Bening was her teacher and where her love for acting was born. Hatcher's first job was as a mermaid dancer on "The Love Boat," before moving on to the lead role in the musical "Cabaret." She made her film debut in "The Big Picture" and went on to parts in other popular movies including "Soap Dish," "Two Days in the Valley," "Tomorrow Never Dies" and "Spy Kids." Her more memorable roles have been in television, first as Lois Lane in "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," and now as Susan Mayer in "Desperate Housewives," for which she earned a Best Actress Golden Globe and three SAG awards (two for ensemble cast and one for individual). Hatcher also recently authored the book Burnt Toast.

During her interview with Lipton, Hatcher reveals her singing ability with a few bars from "Cabaret;" demonstrates ballet positions, complete with pirouette; and candidly speaks on a range of topics:

ON STARTING ACTING AT THE AMERICAN CONSERVATORY THEATER WITH ANNETTE BENING AS A TEACHER: "Annette Bening was actually my teacher. It was probably one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. Even within that 6-week program, I felt enlightened to explore a part of myself and understand something that I would've never understood had I not met Annette. One of the things I remember her saying about comedy is 'the best comedy comes from the most serious place.' And sometimes I think that's why I'm pretty good at it, because I've been in a lot of pain. My life has been filled with a lot of secret pain. I'm the best one to be there and turn it around into something funny."

ON "MOST LIKELY" TITLE BESTOWED ON HER: "(I was) Most likely to become a Solid Gold dancer."

ON BEING A BOND GIRL IN "TOMORROW NEVER DIES": "There are odd things about my memories of movies, that wouldn't necessarily be what people would think. My memory of that movie was that I was four months pregnant when I shot it. So I had really big boobs, and they looked really good in that dress."

ON HOW SHE AFFORDED HER FIVE YEAR CAREER BREAK WHILE RAISING HER DAUGHTER" "Thanks to Radio Shack commercials, and I'm not ashamed to admit it."

ON FIRST AUDITIONING FOR "DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES": "I don't think they were that hot to hire me for Susan. I was maybe on a B-list, certainly not on an A-list. I was able to get into a meeting, but they weren't even sure if it was Susan, maybe it was Lynette, they didn't really know. And I just started talking to Marc Cherry and trying to not be what I thought they wanted me to be. Trying to finally let go of that and just be me. Embrace an idea that you have to let it come to you. You have to trust that if it's right it'll come to you."

ON NETWORK STANDARDS AND PRACTICES: "All I know is that the whole first season thousands of dollars were spent digitally erasing my nipples. � In real life they're not erased. I think 'Grey's Anatomy' gets to have nipples, and I have a little beef to have with the network about that. Then again, they are on at 10 o'clock. In 10 o'clock, you can have nipples. At 9 o'clock, no nipples!"

ON THE VANITY FAIR ARTICLE ABOUT HER CHILDHOOD PAIN: "The day after the article came out, 25 victims called that DA's office. In one day, I've had thousands of emails from around the world of women who even though the statute of limitations was up in their case, they went down and filed a police report because it just made them feel like 'I can be empowered.' And if by me coming forward, by me being successful, it empowers other people to feel like they can have that too. It's really turned out to be a great experience for everyone."

ON IF HER CHILDHOOD PAIN WILL EVER LEAVE: "I don't think so. I think that whoever ends up in my life -- my girlfriends, a man who I might be intimate with -- they'll have to want to embrace it as a part of me. I think it's better to embrace your experiences as a part of you, instead of trying to compartmentalize them and pretend that they don't exist. But it doesn't dominate me."
