Marc Cherry on 'disastrous' Vanity Fair shoot

TCA -- The "Desperate Housewives" showrunner weighed in on "the disastrous Vanity Fair photo shoot."

"A writer saw it from only one perspective," Cherry says. "Ultimately I solved it by hugging a sobbing actress in her trailer for 30 minutes and told her, 'This too shall pass. ... It's not real life, it's show business ... pretty soon they’ll forget you and really attack 'Lost.' "

On the show jumping five years into the future, Cherry says, "I made a mistake of telling one of my actors [about the plan] and then I'm reading in the trades and I'm like, 'Goddamn Marcia.' " I had been thinking how Damon and Carlton had done it in 'Lost' ... and I wanted do an eight-year jump, then somebody explained to me how the actors reacted, I thought, 'OK, maybe five years' and explained that they wouldn't look old."
