Uh-oh! The Housewives have chosen a very clear side!
So much for Switzerland!
Amidst the nasty lawsuit Nicollette Sheridan filed against her former boss, Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, the other four ladies of the hit series - Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria Parker, Marcia Cross, and Felicity Huffman - have broken their silence and released this joint statement yesterday:
"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. 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 Hatcher also decided to clear the air personally due to a claim made in Sheridan's suit that alleges Marc Cherry said, "I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies."
"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."
Well, this certainly puts a spin on Edie's stories!
What do U think?? Do U think the Housewives are being truthful or do U think they're just trying to keep their jobs??
