Ottawa Citizen:

The producers of TV's Desperate Housewives have reportedly spent thousands of dollars digitally removing the nipples from on-screen images of actresses Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan.

In discussing the show's "nipple problem," series creator Marc Cherry tells the Philadelphia Daily News: "Certain actresses really don't like to wear bras. And we try to accommodate them as much as humanly possible. ... So we've done a lot of blurring."


A similar situation exists on Canadian actress Pamela Anderson's new TV series, Stacked. In an April interview on Howard Stern's radio show, the actress complained that network censors ordered her nipples be "taped down" during filming so as not to offend prime-time audiences.

The bizarre trend isn't limited to celebrity skin.

According to a spokeswoman for Victoria's Secret, one of the biggest complaints from the company's clients was "nipple show-through" in unlined bras. They responded by introducing the much-hyped Ipex, a bra with a contoured pad designed to prevent this problem from arising.

This isn't just limited to women. I've noticed that on several TV shows, make-up (apparently) is applied to obscure the nipples of shirtless guys, too.

No nipples? Then I'm boycotting 'Desperate Housewives'. We should organise a mass protest. Topless in the streets. Down with Nipplegate.

But of course!

Guns don't kill people. Nipples kill people.

It's all fun and games until someone pokes your eye out with a nipple.

I wish they showed more nipples on TV.

The Europeans do, during prime time too! Seems like a code violation if they don't . (I may exagurate a little).

This thread is an answer to a prayer!

Now please pay attention, if you watched a certain newscast a few nights ago, you saw an interview with a very beautiful waitress.

She approached the table with the items ordered by the two couples.

And suddenly, there it was, nipple action.
