Is Dana Delany Leaving Desperate Housewives?

at . Comments

File this under an unusual casting tidbit:

Dana Delany has been offered the lead role in Body of Evidence, an upcoming ABC drama. What makes this so unexpected?

The actress is currently starring on Desperate Housewives. It's rare to see a show's star actively courted by another show, especially one that's airing on the same network.

Katherine in Bed

The new series revolves around a female medical examiner who used to work as a neurosurgeon. While ABC has declined to comment on the development, allow us to make this plea to Delany? Get off Wisteria Lane now!

Katherine-related storylines, such as the character's most recent bedroom dalliances (pictured) with Robin, aren't helping your career at all.

What would you advice for Delany be? Do you wanna see her leave Desperate Housewives?

Scavo kids: No! No! No! No!
Lynette: Guys, guys, guys, hey my hands are tied. Thieves get spanked. Just the way it works. Unless...
Porter: Unless what?
Lynette: For a first time offense, if you swear, cross your heart, that you will never, never steal again, and you write Mrs. McCluskey a letter of apology, I will let it slide.
Scavo kids: Okay! Yeh! We swear! Yeh! We swear!
Lynette: Alright, start with Dear Mrs. McCluskey.
Porter: Mommy, why are you smiling?
Lynette: Do you know what physiological warfare means?
Porter: No.
Lynette: Well, too bad for you
