ETonline: Army Wives, like PLL, TVD and OTH, has a very passionate following. What's it like to be on shows that elicit such strong reactions from fans?
DeVitto: Oh my gosh, you have no idea. My mom was in Charleston with me [where Army Wives is filmed] and this happens to be a college town. She always says that no one would believe how many times I still get approached about One Tree Hill. Especially amongst college kids. I'm telling you, nine out of ten times, when people approach me, it's for nanny Carrie. That character does not go away. It's insane. I remember this one time when I was first doing One Tree Hill, which was before Twitter and all that, I was mid-change at the gym -- in my freakin' bra in the locker room --when this girl comes up to me, so pissed off, and shouts, "You're ruining everything!" [laughs] Then she just stormed off. There's a lot more people out there than you would think who cannot differentiate between TV and reality. I do think there's a lot of people out there who think I'm a nasty human being. Then there's all the people who are madly in love with my husband who are like, "How could he be with Nanny Carrie!?!? I don't understand."
