NEW YORK (Reuters) - The ladies on Wisteria Lane are friends on and off the set, Felicity Huffman, one of the lead actresses on the hit television show, "Desperate Housewives," said on Sunday.

"We're all friends. We all get along. I love going to work," said Huffman, who plays Lynette Scavo, on the show.

There had been talk of tension among the cast, which reportedly boiled over at a group cover shoot for "Vanity Fair" when Marcia Cross (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/celeb/nm/en_nm/leisure_huffman_dc/14975204/*http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news?fr=news-storylinks&p=%22Marcia%20Cross%22&c=&n=20&yn=c&c=news&cs=nw) stormed off the set. The incident was chronicled by the magazine's writer Ned Zeman.

"I have to tip my hat off to that writer (Zeman) because it's a tempest in a teapot," Huffman told Reuters.

Huffman, who wrapped up her part in the final episode of "Desperate Housewives" last week in Los Angeles, flew to New York to promote her film, "Transamerica."

Her husband, actor William H. Macy, was the executive producer of the movie, which has its North American premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday.

Huffman has been baffled by the slew of stories on discord among the female cast members who include Teri Hatcher (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/celeb/nm/en_nm/leisure_huffman_dc/14975204/*http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news?fr=news-storylinks&p=%22Teri%20Hatcher%22&c=&n=20&yn=c&c=news&cs=nw), Eva Longoria and Nicollette Sheridan.

"People have been waiting and have been wanting us to fight from the beginning," Huffman said. "Why do they think there's going to be a catfight? I don't get it."

She said she, Longoria and Cross have tea regularly and Longoria and Cross go on "serious shopping forays."

"Desperate Housewives" along with "Lost" have helped to reverse the sagging fortunes of ABC, the TV division of Disney.
