Nicollette Sheridan Testifies: Talks Marc Cherry, Golden Globes, And Tiffany's

Nicollette Sheridan

Welcome ladies and gentlefans of the world, we present to you Miss Edie Britt Nicollette Sheridan!!

The former housewife took the stand yesterday to complete her testimony in the $6 million lawsuit against Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry and ABC.

Sheridan discussed a letter that she had received from ABC’s Human Resource department dismissing the seriousness of her allegations against Marc Cherry and how he supposedly whacked her on the head.

The actress stated that the letter was:

“…an appalling, outrageous lie.”

Miss Sheridan DID admit that she DID NOT take any further action against the network at the time, choosing to remain silent on the subject.

That silence continued into a sexual harrassment seminar held a month later, a seemingly perfect opportunity to air grievances against Mr. Cherry. Sheridan did not mention the incident, however, claiming:

"Quite frankly I was afraid of being retaliated against…I wasn’t sure what the HR department or what any HR department really was.”

Really, Sheridan? Using ignorance as an excuse does not seem to help your case here…

The actress also got teary-eyed when presented with a note from an ABC exec who praised her performance at one of the table-reads during her last season on the show.

Awww, Sher! No need to get all misty, now get it together!! You can’t be all emotional during the cross-examination. Them lawyers are sharks and tears are their lifeblood!

During the cross-examination Sheridan was asked about a previous letter submitted to the court which referred to the violent action from Cherry as a slap in the face, not a whack on the head. But, Sheridan had already had her lawyers amend the letter, so this really wasn’t any hard evidence to say she was lying.

Nicollette’s lawyer also had her discuss part of her testimony from last week, when she talked about The Golden Globes and how she was snubbed when the Hollywood Foreign Press put her in the Best Supporting Category, when a few of the other Housewives were put up for Best Leading.

This is important because Marc Cherry claims Sheridan was never a lead character on the show - that’s why they could kill her off in season 5. Sheridan believes that this was all just a strategy by the creators to prevent her from competing with the other acterssess from the show.

And, FINALLY…Sheridan's lawyer had her discuss the fact that she went out to Tiffany's after the supposed incident with Cherry. She claims this was NOT a shopping trip but a meeting with a friend.

Annnd we're done! PHEW. We know…it’s a lot to take in.

Now you have her full side of the story, do U think Sheridan deserves to win her case???

    I liked her character better than any of the others. I quit watching when they killed her off. I don't think the truth will come out. Anyone who testifies on her side will be blacklisted by the industry, so what chance is there of a fair hearing?

    What's sad about all this is that it probably did occur. What's sadder is that her so called 'cast of friends' including Longoria (who has been rumored to have had a very crazy fight with Cherry herself) will lie on the stand to protect themselves. And Marc Cherry will get away with it. Justice goes with the power and poor Sheridan has none in this situation. :(

    You state 'Really, Sheridan? Using ignorance as an excuse does not seem to help your case here…' A lifetime of this sort of thing against women does shut them up, as the retaliation is very real. As a gay man fighting for civil freedoms, am surprised at you saying this.
