We're finally getting the story, straight from her mouth!
During Nicollette Sheridan's testimony in court today for her multi-million dollar wrongful termination lawsuit for being fired from Desperate Housewives, she discussed openly the HOrrific claim that series creator Marc Cherry hit her for suggesting new lines while filming a scene!
According to the actress:
"It was a nice wallop to my head. It was shocking, humiliating, it was demeaning."
And when asked by her lawyer if she was willing to demonstrate how hard she was hit, she replied:
"I don't want to hurt you."
Furthermore, she went on to say that it was after she complained about her boss' treatment of her, she was let go!
For the record, Cherry claims he merely tapped Sheridan 'lightly' to demonstrate to direct her in the scenes, and that her character was killed off for creative reasons, not retaliation!
And he's got Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman are on the witness list for the defense!
Yeesh! It's going to be interesting to see how this one turns out!
What do U think actually went down?
