Teri Hatcher’s ‘Desperate’ Stunt Gone Wrong!

“Extra” was on the “Desperate Housewives” set as Teri Hatcher helplessly clings to an overturned car submerged in a lake, as James Denton runs to save her.

And while it was a planned stunt for the car to go into the lake, Teri revealed it wasn’t supposed to flip over!
