is "always looking for a man".
Although the 'Desperate Housewives' actress - who split from fiance Michael Bolton last year - wants to find love, she is only interested in men who will treat her well.
She said: "I'm always looking for a man. But please, only princes should talk to me."
Nicollette insists she is nothing like her character Edie Britt in the hit US show, and doesn't want potential love interests to confuse her with the man-eater.
She added to People magazine: "I'm totally different from her, and besides, she'll die next season anyway."
The actress has been spotted with several men since the breakdown of her relationship
with Michael and recently attended the Vienna Opera Ball with Austrian businessman Richard Lugner, 76.
Last year, it was revealed Nicollette was so desperate to find a lover she offered to pay her co-stars to hunt one down for her.
A source said: "They are all desperately going through their phone books because they all want to win the prize!"
