Nicollette Sheridan Amends Desperate Lawsuit!

Not by much, but the additions are pretty revealing.

Last April, Nicollette Sheridan filed a lawsuit against Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry on charges of wrongful termination, assault and battery, and discrimination. The claim is seeking $20 million from Marc Cherry and the ABC network, but this week, there were some amendments to the lawsuit.

When the news of this lawsuit first broke, ABC quickly and swiftly responded to Nicollette's claims by releasing a statement in which they said:

"We investigated similar claims last year by Ms. Sheridan and found them to be without merit."

Marc and ABC execs reportedly told others that the "incident" in which Marc smacked Nicollette was merely a rehearsal of a scene involving a slap.

The new amendments to Nicollette's lawsuit confirm that this was the exact excuse that ABC gave her when she asked them to look into her complaint. The response she got from Executive Vice President of ABC Studios, Howard Davine, said that "Marc (Cherry) simply gave her a light tap on the side of her head for the sole purpose of providing direction for a scene they were rehearsing."

Right, because you were there!

Then, ABC decided to take no further action and close the investigation, informing Nicollette that "we will finish off the season in the spirit of professionalism and courtesy that has been the normal course for Desperate Housewives."

She was fired two months after that. So much for professionalism.

On top of that, the studio insisted that she put on a happy face and talk to the press as if nothing had happened to force her departure behind the scenes, which is why it took her this long to come forward about her mistreatment.

If it's all true, we hope she nails them and nails them good! But it is a "he said, she said" kind of case and the only way for her to win, we think, is if one of the other ladies comes forward to defend her.

Do the right thing, ladies! Let's see what kind of loyalty you have towards one another!

    "Let's see what kind of loyalty to you towards each other!" - What?!? You cannot master English to save your life Perez. And what loyalty are you referring to? If this is BS, then they have nothing to back her up on. Who knows.

    rocking out!!!

    well, were they doing a scene or not???? according to her 'complaint' she was talking to him and he slapped her. NOW, according to ABC, they were doing a scene and he was showing her direction. It comes down, were they rehersing or not? Nicolete is not a friendly person. she has a track record.

    I still don't believe her. She was fine being slapped around as long as she had a job. She sounds like your typical disgruntled ex-employee.

    Her co-stars don't need to be loyal or disloyal. They simply need to be honest.

    Nice apparently you don't think posting a picture of a young girls crotch is wrong. I hope your ass gets sued.

    Re: Phil Seymour

    if nicollete was telling the truth, then all the wives would have defended her, but instead, they denied everything nico said, I think she just wants to take some money from ABC, but, who knows for sure, and there's a possibility that the wives are covering up for ABC….

    wow. she's pissed and won't let it go. hope industry politics allows her to work again. prob telling the truth or she wouldn't go to all this trouble. sad that Teri Hatcher was there and Nicolette says she saw it…..between rock and hard stone.



  13. 13

    So you've already got him guilty?



  14. 14

    aha someone is broke!



  15. 15

    there is no way that one of her ex co-stars will stand behind her they have to protect their meal tickets she is all on her own and she doesn't have a chance in hell to win this one sorry nic get a job if you need the $$$$

    Was Perez's suit also a desperate lawsuit when he was smacked in Toronto?
