When talking about her new lease of life as a comedian, the former ‘Desperate Housewives’ star looks back at the time when she first told the ‘Ted Lasso’ actor about her ‘average vagina’ story.

AceShowbizTeri Hatcher has “Ted Lasso” star Brett Goldstein to thank for her new lease of life as a comedian, because he liked her “average vagina” story.

The “Desperate Housewives” star met Brett at a party while she was shooting competition show “The Great British Bake Off” in England in 2018, and shared all about a recent trip to the gynaecologist with him.

Goldstein found Teri so delightfully funny, he offered to help her turn her story into a comedy bit and encouraged the actress to get up on stage.

“Lord knows why I started puking this out to a complete and utter stranger, but I started telling him this story…, which ended in the gynaecologist telling me, ‘Teri, you have a totally average vagina!’ ” the actress laughs.

“He [Goldstein] was like, That’s a one woman show – Teri Hatcher: Average Vagina – and we started hanging out and he started helping me write. He was so generous… He’s a brilliant writer.”

Nothing came of the idea immediately, but then a year later, Teri was asked to be part of a charity comedy show and thought she could try out a 15 minute routine based on the work she had done with the “Ted Lasso” star.

“It was the last thing I did before COVID, in front of about 300 people, and there was a section of it – about six minutes – that was really kind of good,” Hatcher tells Access Daily, explaining bosses at cable channel Showtime saw video of her performance and reached out about a new comedy project.

“They had this show, ‘Funny Women of a Certain Age’…, and I was honored that they included me and invited me to do it.”
