The stars of Desperate Housewives are standing by show creator Marc Cherry with regards to Nicollette Sheridan‘s accusations of assault and battery.
Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria released this joint statement:
“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 Nicolette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment. It is, in fact, the opposite. The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day.”
Teri added in a separate statement, “I’m honored to stand with Eva, Felicity and Marcia, as a group and clarify that our set environment is nothing less than an amazingly positive experience. I have never felt discriminated against. In fact, I have felt heard and respected by Marc and other executives in regards to both my professional and personal needs.”
Nicollette is suing ABC and Marc for $20 million because he allegedly hit her.
