Revenge of the Housewife
Teri Hatcher takes on Mort Zuckerman.
Desperate Housewife Teri Hatcher operates publicist-less, which means she has to go after the press herself. Last week, the tabs linked her to a “boy toy,” fashion photographer Jim Macari. When we called to ask about rumors that he was mad about it since he has a girlfriend, she left a message: “It would be lovely if you could be a human being that would actually print something true.” So what was wrong? “First of all, I wasn’t with the people they listed, like Lizzie Guffman [sic]. I wouldn’t recognize them if you put them in front of me.” She confirmed she and Macari were dancing that night, but claimed she didn’t know his romantic status—though he did call her around nine on the morning of his paparazzi christening, shocked. “I literally answered and said, ‘I’m so sorry,’ ” said Hatcher, who was en route to a Tribeca Film Festival panel. Turns out Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman was there, and she gave him “quite a bit of shit. You know, ‘How can your paper print an article that’s completely full of erroneous crap?’ And he goes, ‘Well, but look at how good you look in the picture.’ ”
