Question: Do you have any new scoop on the rumor that Kelly Monaco is leaving General Hospital for Desperate Housewives?

Answer: It's not true. Marc Cherry told us so himself last month. "I was asked by Access Hollywood about that, and I responded politely because I have never entertained the idea, and I don't know Kelly's work," he explained to my colleague, Bruce Fretts. "So when they asked, 'Is it going to happen?' I didn't want to say, 'Absolutely not.' That would have been rude. [Kelly is] probably a fine actress. I just don't have any plans to use her. [But] that doesn't mean I never, never, never will."
