'Desperate Housewives' star Teri Hatcher hates life as a divorcee - because she is scared her 10-year-old daughter Emerson is missing out on a stable upbringing.

The star split from her second husband Jon Tenny in 2003 when their daughter was six years old - and the actress is concerned about the effects their break up has had on Emerson in the four years since their divorce.

She tells Britain's Heat magazine: "It comes up with other school mums. You know, we talk. I'll get asked stuff, like: 'Is it difficult for her?' I feel horrible about being divorced. That's her life also and it's not great, having to go back and forth from her dad's.

"So I think when you have situations that sort of just are - you can't change that I'm famous - then it's really your job to concentrate on how to make this work in a positive way. We have a little rule: I don't really have pictures taken with people when I'm with her."
