About Her

Grew up… in a trailer park, far away from the picturesque Wisteria Lane. She was left to fend for herself after her father abandoned her to go live with his mistress. The self-reliant Edie became a go-getter out of necessity.

Living… on Wisteria Lane. Edie, a divorcee, lives in a community of successful white-collar housewives. Unfortunately, Edie is the subject of scandalous gossip amongst the other Wisteria Lane wives. Her old “friend” Mary Alice Young describes her as “the most predatory divorcee within a five-block radius.”

Profession… owner of her own real estate company. Edie is, for the most part, a self-made woman.

Interests… satisfying her sexual appetite. Edie, a voracious cougar, has the power to seduce any man she wants. She asks, “You know someone else my age with a body like this?” Let’s just say it was a rhetorical question.

Relationship Status… chasing her new neighbor, Mike Delfino. Edie likes to have a bit of fun, but she also wants some real romance in her life. Unfortunately, she has to compete against her neighbor, Susan Mayer, for Mike’s attention. Edie doesn’t much care for that: “I hate Susan Mayer. Every time I see those big doe eyes of hers, I swear to God I just want to go out and shoot a deer.”

Challenge… gaining acceptance from the exclusive Wisteria Lane housewives. The lonely Edie just wants to have some friends. As an attractive single woman, most of her married neighbors tend to see her as a threat.

Personality… sassy, needy, and self-centered. Edie is used to getting what she wants, so when fate conspires against her she has a difficult time accepting it.
