This lawsuit keeps getting uglier.
To recap, Desperate Housewives' Nicollette Sheridan is suing show creator Marc Cherry for wrongful termination, breach of contract, and battery after her character was killed off the show.
Earlier this week, Cherry was disputing the claims of wrongful termination because "her contract only had a one year deal and the option to renew it wasn't utilized after the fifth season."
Now, Nicolette has filed new papers against Cherry claiming that she was fired from the show "for being a woman"
Here's what she said in the legal docs:
"Mr. Cherry harassed and discriminated against me because I am a woman."
"Mr. Cherry sang the praises of the other four leading actresses on the show but made disparaging comments about me and my character Edie Britt."
"Mr. Cherry was extremely controlling with respect to the scripts, particularly when the female actors on the show would propose script changes."
As we've said before, ABC and Marc Cherry should REALLY try to settle with Nicollette before it goes to trial this fall. It's just gonna get uglier.
What do U think about Nicollette's new claims against Marc Cherry? Valid or bullshiz?
