Desperate Housewives star counts George's dad as one of her best friends

One’s an actress and a single mother and the other is an ex-president of the United States.

A more unlikely pairing we couldn’t imagine, but it seems that Teri Hatcher and George Bush senior are bosom buddies.

Yes, Desperate Housewives star Teri, 42, was snapped giving Mr Bush, 82, a kiss on the cheek and pat on the bottom at lunch last week.

It turns out they’ve been friends for years and the actress and her daughter Emerson, nine, have even stayed at the Bush home in Maine.

‘He’s wonderful to my family,’ she gushes. ‘I hope to be involved in many of his charities.’
