DESPERATE Housewife! LOL!!!

That old adage about one man's trash being another man's treasure is particularly true when the rubbish in question is a trove of nudie pics of a well-respected actress. The New York Daily News reports Marcia Cross is demanding the return of more than 200 very personal photos that would make her buttoned-up, small-screen alter ego blush.
Seems the preternaturally smooth-skinned "Desperate Housewives" star, who is expecting twins with her stockbroker husband, Tom Mahoney, accidentally tossed out the photos (Marcia, honey, it's called a safe -- look into it), which were later discovered by an employee of a company hired to haul away garbage from her Los Angeles home.
The firm's owner, with dollar signs apparently dancing in his head, contacted agent-***-sleaze-merchant David Hans Schmidt, who once shopped around raunchy shots of Jamie Foxx that were also reportedly found in his garbage.
"There are some pictures of her showering outside," Schmidt tells the paper of the Cross snaps. "She looks absolutely gorgeous. And yes, the carpet does match the curtains."
Say it with us, people: Klassy.
The porn peddler insists the sudsy snaps weren't purloined, but Marcia's attorneys assert they remain her copyrighted property (and her hubby's, because he may have been behind the lens for some of them), despite where they ended up.
Argues Schmidt, "When you throw something away, you forfeit that property. We recognize the copyright issue, but U.S. copyright law stops at the border."
It's unclear whether he intends to offer up the images for sale outside the country to get around those pesky legal precedents, but he is giving the seemingly careless Cross the chance to reclaim the skin-tastic shots, as long as the price is right.
"I'm not looking to mortify Ms. Cross," he tells the paper. "I just want the most money for my client."
Several months back, he proposed a similar deal to Paris Hilton, suggesting she cough up the cash to buy back the compromising contents of her storage locker, which had been put up for auction after a supposed billing mix-up.
His asking price: a bargain basement $20 million.
According to Schmidt, Cross' reps have so far refused to cede to his monetary demands (he's keeping the number under wraps).
Unfortunately, Marcia's bargaining position may be weakened because Schmidt's client also claims to have her tax returns. "I know how much she made, but out of respect for Ms. Cross, I won't discuss it," says the carpet-and-drapes-spouting gentleman.
^ HAHAHA!!! Celebs are SO STUPID/CARELESS! I hope it gets all over the web!
who "accidentally" throws out nude photos of themselves? sounds like a publicity stunt to me.
why would she need to pull a publicity stunt? The show is doing better then ever, she is currently pregnant, when she has the baby she will have loads of attention and Marcia Cross is the last person to pull a publicity stunt.
