Why This Hollywood Star Was Kicked Off a Dating App

Dating is hard for anyone, but especially if you are a celebrity who is known all over the world.

Since meeting people in person for the first time is not always the first choice, and dating apps are the new norm, we now have more access than ever to people who we perhaps never would have met had it not been for the likes of Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, or any other dating apps. 

However, while the use of dating apps might be somewhat easy for the average person, it becomes a bit more complex if you are a Hollywood celebrity, particularly if you’re “Desperate Housewives” star Teri Hatcher.

During an appearance on “Getting Grilled With Curtis Stone, Hatcher revealed that she had been on the dating app Hinge, but ended up being kicked off the app. 

Hatcher told Stone that she doesn’t tend to meet people in real life, so like many others in the modern dating world, decided to give dating apps a go. She told the host that she had “tried them all” and that Hinge was the latest dating app that she was on. But while Hatcher might have been hoping to meet the love of her life on the app, she ended up being removed as it was believed that she wasn’t the real Teri Hatcher.

While Hinge is free to use, you can pay for various features of the app, including Hinge Preferred Membership. According to Business Insider, this gives you an unlimited amount of likes, being able to set preferred preferences in a potential partner, and you can send roses which helps you get to the front of a potential partner’s profile. 


As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Hatcher had paid for the premium version of Hinge. Once she was removed from the app, she wanted her money back. Realizing they had made a mistake, Hinge set her an apology, which she accepted, but she has now decided that she is over the whole situation.

She is also apparently no longer interested in using dating apps, and she feels it’s more likely she might meet someone in person than online from now on. So anyone who may have been hoping to match with Hatcher on Hinge or any other dating app will have to put these hopes to one side — for the time being, at least. 

However, as she’s not one to let these things defeat her, Hatcher then went on to say that she is grateful for being happy and having a fulfilling life. Furthering this, she said that she doesn’t need a man, as she has her friends and cat, which is certainly one way to have a more positive outlook on life.

And if anyone does happen to match with Hatcher on any dating apps anytime soon, it is more than likely a fake profile, since Hatcher will only be doing in-person dating from now on.
