She’s hardly the shy and retiring type.
And Teri Hatcher put her famous ‘just do it’ attitude to good use last night when she bounded on stage to join her Desperate Housewives co-star James Denton as he performed with his band at the 11th Annual Lupus LA Orange Ball.
The actress put her all into the performance, shimmying about in her low-cut, polka dot dress and playing up to her onscreen husband.
Teri was a guest performer with the Band From TV at the event, held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel.
Denton is a member of the famous group, whose members include Greg Gunberg (Alias and Felicity), Scott Grimes (E.R.), The Bachelor’s Bob Guiney, Teri and James’ former Desperate Housewives co-star Adrian Pasdar (who also appeared in Heroes) and Anthony Ruivivar (Third Watch).
Other members include House stars Hugh Laurie and Jesse Spencer.
The band belted out songs including Somewhere Over The Rainbow and Hard To Handle, according to revellers at the event posting on Twitter.
Teri appeared to be having a ball onstage as she danced and sang along in front of the crowd which included Paula Abdul, Sharon Stone and Terri Seymour.
If she had any nerves she didn’t show it — after all this is the woman who has competed against professionals in a gruelling triathlon for charity, paraded in lingerie on camera to play a sexy maid and once filmed herself from the moment she woke up to show fans what celebrities really look like without the make-up and special lighting.
