Nicollette Sheridan Sues ABC & 'Housewives' Creator Marc Cherry

Former Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan has sued ABC, ABC Studios, Touchstone Television and series creator Marc Cherry for $20 million!!!

The 46-year-old actress claims that she was struck on the head by Marc and fired when she complained about it.

“On September 24, 2008, during a rehearsal for the show, when Sheridan questioned Cherry about something that was in the script, Cherry took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head,” Nicollette says in her complaint via THR. “[I was] physically and emotionally injured, humiliated and stunned by Cherry‘s sudden physical violence and stated, ‘you just hit me in the head, that is not okay. THAT IS NOT OKAY!’ ”

Nicollette continued, “After an incident where Sheridan‘s co-star on the show Teri Hatcher went above Cherry‘s head to speak to ABC executives, Cherry told Sheridan, ‘I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies.’ ”

ABC has responded, saying, “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.”

Wow, this lawsuit seems like it’s straight off the script of Desperate Housewives!
