Nicollette Speaks Out!

| Filed under: Nicollette SheridanLegal Matters

After filing a $20 million lawsuit against Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry for wrongful termination, gender violence and assault and battery, Nicollette Sheridan is defending her position.

Her reps released the following statement.

Sheridan's legal team said:

Nicollette worked very hard on the show and was a model employee. Mr. Cherry's behavior towards Nicollette was and is nothing short of abusive and appalling. The lawsuit is not something Nicollette wanted to do, it's something she felt compelled to do. 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, and in doing so help protect others who have had to work in a hostile environment. 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. She put her heart and soul into the role of the Edie character, a character that she truly enjoyed playing.

Shocking!

    maybe if she didn't portray herself as such as slut people would find her statements more reliable…..

    I've heard he is a crazy queen on the rag most of the time. Nicolette is a professional. She worked on Knots Landing fo 10 yrs and her cast-mates only ever say great things about her.



  5. 5

    She really felt she HAD to sue for 20 million dollars? I don't know I think she just wants money know that her characters been killed off.

    Sounds like sour grapes to me Ms Sheridan??!! One wonders why she didn't feel 'compelled' to bring these issues to light while she was still on the show….

    Watching Housewives the other day I said to my sister, "Do you ever feel a giant Edie-shaped hole in this show now?" and she totally agreed with me. It seemed such an out-of-place, not to mention out-of-the-blue elimination of a character that really had a valuable and entertaining place in the show. I'm Team Nicolette.

    I hope she wins! the guy must be stupid to get rid of an amazing character like Eedie and bring in some pathetic sleep inducer like katherine…

    I am glad she is standing up to ABC/Mark Cherry and I hope people will come forward to support her claims but I have to say, most people will not want to get involved for fear of them losing their jobs and will deny, deny deny. I wish her luck.

    Does she need work that bad??…

  13. @v@ says – reply to this

    Re: April 20th – She ACTING when she portrays a slut. She doesn't comport herself like that in real life. If she's coming forward about this after all this time, something must have been bothering her for quite a while.

    The show has become a huge snooze. I quit watching it.
