It's on.

To recap, Desperate Housewives alum Nicollette Sheridan has been pursuing legal action against show creator Marc Cherry for wrongful termination, breach of contract, and battery after her character was killed off the show.

Back in July, she filed new legal papers against Marc, claiming that he fired her from the show "for being a woman."

Now, the trial has begun, and we're hearing that it could last as long as "11 days!" Wowsa!

As it stands now, we're hearing that the case has been trimmed to "just wrongful termination and battery," and IF Nicollette wins, she'll be able to reclaim as a much as one year's salary ($4 million).

Nicollette WANTED to be paid for the entire run of the show…but we're sure she'll still make every effort to claim that 4 mil!

We're hearing that LOTS of current/former ABC execs will be called to testify in this case, including former ABC president Steve McPherson, and former ABC studio exec/current CW president Mark Pedowitz.

Witnesses in the case will include Housewives castmembers Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, and many others!

Stay tuned! We'd expect to hear A LOT more on this VERY soon…..

    On the news yesterday I heard that Eva was saying things like Marc C was a sweetheart and he couldn't possibly hurt a fly. That sounds to me like the women on the show are standing behind MC on this. Maybe NS is the bitch that everyone says she is and couldn't get her way so she is having a tantrum. Plus she hasn't done anything for so long maybe she needs the money, I mean how long can you collect unemployment ? She went way overboard on her plastic facial surgeries and looks so old. Not too many jobs out there for her to look pretty in anymore.
