Nicolette Sheridan Vs. ABC And Marc Cherry

 Gossip Cop reports that on the heels of Nicollette Sheridan filing a $20 million lawsuit against “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry, in which she alleged he “took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face an
d head,” ABC has responded.

Today, ABC issued the following statement: “While we have yet to see the actual complaint, we investigated similar claims made by Ms. Sheridan last year and found them to be without merit.”
Well, that’s not how Team Sheridan sees it.
Via her attorney, Mark Baute, Sheridan slapped back at reports that questioned the veracity of her allegations.

According to Sheridan’s attorney: “Mr. Cherry’s behavior towards Nicollette was and is nothing short of abusive and appalling… Nicollette asked ABC for help and protection from Mr. Cherry’s abusive behavior, and ultimately, ABC was not willing or able to provide that protection.

“Sometimes the only way that a safe and normal work environment can be created is when a hard-working person like Nicollette stands up for herself and her rights… We expect the case to be hard fought, and it will not be a surprise if ABC and Mr. Cherry try to depict Nicollette to be something other than a team player and long-standing industry professional.”


In my opinion, I have heard many a things about the ruckus behind the scenes of Desperate Housewives.  It will be interesting to see where this ends up and how both parties deal.  I have strong reason to believe that Sheridan isn't doing this for press and there is actually merit to her story.  Time will tell. 

I wonder if Marc ever stuck the Golden Girls back in the day?  I have a feeling Bea Arthur would have beat his ass.
