All the drama surrounding this TV show could be a show in and of itself!
As a reminder, it was around a year ago that Nicollette Sheridan filed a $20 million lawsuit against ABC and the creator behind Desperate Housewives Marc Cherry for sex discrimination and wrongful termination. As we mentioned last month, she claimed that she was struck by Marc in the face and that her character was killed off the show just so she could be fired.
Former staff writer Lori Kirkland Baker had come forward to back up Nicollette, but of course ABC countered Baker's testimony.
Now, Judge Elizabeth Allen White of L.A. County Superior Court has given Nicollette's lawsuit the OK to go to trial in June.
Nicollette's assault/sexual harassment charges against Marc Cherry were dismissed, but she was given approval to move forward with her lawsuit seeking damages for "wrongful termination and unlawful retaliation."
Hmm…MIGHT wanna consider trying to settle with Nicollette, ABC. Just sayin'!
Whose side are U on? Team ABC/Marc Cherry or Team Nicollette?
