Apparently, all the consistent fans of “Desperate Housewives” couldn’t get enough of actor James Denton, who actually played very well in Teri Hatcher’s dreamy love interest and pipe Plumber Mike Delfino on the ABC drama.
The series set the fictional vine wisteria Lane, aired for eight seasons till it led to 2012 and took Denton’s Hollywood life with it.
The 58-year-old actor gave a rare interview from his home in Minnesota on Thursday, and in it, it actually explained why he and his better half created the “conscious decision” to leave Hollywood behind why this show was terminated, and why he hasn’t looked back since.
Ultimately, it all came down to what the combined pair was best for the well-being of their 2 youngsters.
“Their mum was born here in Minnesota thus we thought perhaps we should always get the children out of L.A.,” Denton explained on Australia’s “The Morning Show.” “[Los Angeles] isn’t a good place for kids.
It is tough. the schools are extremely exorbitant, thus we have a tendency to determined as before long as ‘Housewives’ terminated, we’d come back over here and allow them to become older in a very very little a little more normal suburban American neighborhood.”
Denton has still managed to stay active in Tinseltown despite his departure, especially in “The GOOD WITCH” on The Hallmark Channel.

He spent time out there on the lifespan drama series, “Devious Maids.”
During his chat with “The Morning Show,” Denton added that his longevity on “Desperate Housewives” had truly hindered his ability to land completely different roles following the show’s finale.

“I had struggling wanting to be seen for any price that was, like, a suit and tie role, or even a politician,” Denton explained. “Anything like that that wasn’t blue-collar, I had a trouble right after ‘Housewives.’”
Although he played in the hunky Delfino within the saponaceous drama, Denton’s same fellow “Housewives” co-star Felicity Huffman had foreshadowed his Hollywood exile at a cast meeting throughout the ultimate season.
