“Desperate Housewives'” stars back show producer
As we all know, last week Nicollette Sheridan filed a $20 million lawsuit against Marc Cherry the creator and producer of “Desperate Housewives,” accusing him of assault. Sheridan says that Cherry punched her in the head during production on the the series’ fifth season. He allegedly apologized but then arranged for her character, Edie Britt, to be killed off the show. Sheridan claims that she informed ABC about the whole mess, but producers and the network did nothing.
Now the other stars of the show, Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria have joined together in support of Marc. Their statement reads “It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicollette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment.” Also, the statement addresses Nicollette’s mention of Teri Hatcher in her lawsuit “unfortunate and inappropriate.”
Hmmm….what is the real story?
