The ban comes after her co-star Marcia Cross' pregnancy in 2006, which evidently cause big problems for the scriptwriters of the show. "Tony and I are working on expanding our family. But the producer has forbidden me from getting pregnant this year. Seriously! Marcia's pregnancy came as a big surprise and posed a big problem for the scriptwriters," The Daily Star quoted the actress as saying.
"Even so, I love being a real housewife. I cook, I clean up, I do Tony's washing," she added. She does say that her work routine itself might delay her plans to get pregnant."
"I work three to four days a week (in Los Angeles) and then fly to Texas to spend a long weekend with Tony. This means we can only have sex on the weekends."
