Washington, Sept 15 : Heather Mills was close to appearing in hit U.S. TV show 'Desperate Housewives' - until actress Eva Longoria Parker objected to the decision.
Michele Elyzabeth, the former glamour model's ex-publicist, insists that Mills was 'desperate' to make a name for herself in Hollywood and advised her to secure her a role on a high profile TV series.
She said that Mills was set to appear in Desperate Housewives, until Longoria Parker demanded she be dropped from the cast.
"Heather was desperate to live in America. She wanted to be accepted by Hollywood in any way. I tried to get her on Desperate Housewives in a little cameo," Contactmusic quoted Elyzabeth, as saying.
"The producer was keen. I reckon they saw the chance to get some headlines for the show. But when the stars discussed it, Eva Longoria was totally against it. She demanded Heather be dropped from consideration," she added.
