While Hatcher may face her own real life setbacks, none involve the law or jail time like her character Susan on Desperate Housewives. Recently, Hatcher opened up to Prevention about the series of health issues she’s faced this past year including cracked ribs and a “frozen shoulder.” She also shares the details on the goal of finding a man this year, where she stands on plastic surgery, and which foods she chooses to indulge on.
Teri is not desperate, and certainly no housewife! She mentions how she broke two ribs on the set of “DH” while pole dancing!
Check out a few excerpts from her interview below:
On what she been through lately:
I’ve had a really rough year. It’s been excruciating and crazy making. This is basically the journey: When I turned forty-five, I was in amazing shape. I had done a triathlon. I was happy in my workouts and felt superstrong. Shortly after that, I cracked two ribs at home falling off a ladder in my backyard. I was spray painting the backdrop of a castle and a town for the musical Into the Woods for my daughter’s birthday. I was at the highest rung of the ladder in my Uggs when I slipped and fell midback onto the corner of the stage. Of course I thought I was dead or paralyzed. Then I broke two ribs on the DH set while I was doing a pole-dancing scene. That was on my forty-fifth birthday-December 8, 2009.
On Meeting a man:
The next day we were going on rides. This guy came up to me and said, “do I know you?” he seemed nice. We talked. So he walked away and my girlfriend goes, “Should I see if he’s single?” I go, “Yes.” She runs over, gets his card. We went on a date, didn’t work out. Fine. The point is, I’m actively trying in a different way. Since then, I’ve gone on a date with a very attractive man and it was a terrific example of me manifesting this conscious change and taking responsibility for why I may have unconsciously been keeping relationships at bay. By no means am I in one, but I have three guys calling at the moment, and that’s different from before.
On her ideal guy:
I’m all over the map. I want to have an open mind. I’d like him to be between thirty-nine and fifty-four. Fun, adventurous, funny, kind, honest, smart. Successful- but I want to be clear that doesn’t necessarily mean rich.
