Star reported this week that Teri Hatcher was living that Matt Foley life in a van because she’s homeless and broke (the van’s distance to the nearest river is not known). Last month Teri put her Studio City, CA mansion up for rent, and she has been filming videos in a van. Star claimed she’s been sleeping in that van. Teri spoke to KTLA 5 and she’d like everyone to know that she’s not homeless, broke, or living in a van.
Teri is currently filming a web series, Van Therapy, for her YouTube channel, Hatching Change. The premise of Van Therapy is simple: Teri invites random people into her van and gives them advice.
It’s funny; if there’s one piece of advice I would give to anyone, it would be to run the other way if a stranger invites you into their van. But she’s got a show.
Teri spoke to KTLA 5’s Sam Rubin from London (where she and her van are currently located). She says that Star reached out to her publicist to inform them that they had pictures of Teri in her van at the beach, and planned to run a story about her being homeless. Teri says her publicist assured them they were wrong. Star went ahead and ran the story anyway.
Teri wanted to speak out and tell the truth, because yesterday was International Women’s Day.
“I just felt like somebody has to say you can’t do this. You can’t egregiously lie hurtfully with such a ridiculous story. It’s a kind of harassment and bullying that we can’t take anymore.”
Teri also says she invested her money very well, and therefore she’s not broke, and is considering taking legal action against Star.
Teri may not be broke and homeless, but she does want a Desperate Housewives reunion. E! News says that Teri was asked about the chance of a reunion during an appearance on ITV’s Loose Women on Wednesday, and she’s into it.
“I would be the first person, yeah, I never wanted it to be over, I loved those characters,” Hatcher shared, before admitting that she doesn’t think the chances of a revival are “very good.”
She adds that all the women from the show would most likely be on board, but the main hold out would be Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, who isn’t nearly as interested.
If Teri really wants us to believe she’s not living in that van, she’s got to give us a full interior tour. I watch those tiny house shows on HGTV, and there’s one thing they usually all have in common: a chalkboard with something corny like “Little House, Big Dreams” written in brush script. Teri, if you have such a sign, you might want to toss it.
