Yes, Nicollette Sheridan's legal war against ABC and Desperate Housewives is STILL going on, and YES, the courts are STILL not ruling in her favor!
And this time, it went as high up as the California Supreme Court!
As we all know, the actress' now-two-year-old lawsuit began when she asserted that she was wrongfully fired after series creator Marc Cherry struck her during an argument over her dialogue. These claims have since been dismissed, while her case against the network and producers resulted in a mistrial. And although she filed for a re-trial, her request was rejected, which led her to appeal to the Supreme Court!
But its chief justice Tani Cantil-Sakayue has determined
You know that jury had to be desperate to get outta this one!
Cuz finally, after so much mess, an appeals court has determined that Nicollette Sheridan was not wrongfully fired from Desperate Housewives.
As we're sure you remember, Nicci also claimed she had been hit by show-creator Marc Cherry after a heated run-in over script dialogue.
Those charges were since dropped… but as far as the termination taboo goes, the judge says:
monster Munster mash!!
Portia de Rossi — of the late and great Arrested Development — just inked a deal with NBC to star as Lily Munster in their remake of the classic ‘60s horror/comedy.
We bet she and Ellen are having SUPER celebratory cuddles in their $18 mil Beverly Hills mansion right now, LOLz!!
Munsters 2.0 will actually be titled Mockingbird Lane.
Show runner Bryan Fuller and director Bryan Singer promise this will be a darker and more macabre version than your parents watched on TV!!
Portia’s matriarchal Munster was originally meant to be played by Mariana Klaveno of True Blood infamy — but she couldn’t get released from the contract on her Marc Cherry Hallmark pilot!
Yup! The same Mark Cherry entangled in that lengthy legal drama with Nicollette Sheridan over her Desperate Housewives departure!!
Portia’s co-stars on Mockingbird Lane include Jerry O’Connell and Eddie Izzard, who will play Herman and Grandpa Munster respectively.
We LOVE the cast so far and we’re really curious to see where NBC ultimately goes with this idea!!

Looks as though it may very well be the end of the line for Nicollette Sheridan!
The actress had been attempting to secure a re-trial in her wrongful dismissal case against Desperate Housewives and its creator, Marc Cherry, but according to a ruling issued by the California Court of Appeals on Friday
It’s still hard to believe that just a few weeks ago, we said goodbye to Desperate Housewives for good!
Though there were reports throughout the years of a feud between Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher, Eva’s now saying that was just simply NOT the case!
In a recent interview, Longoria explained:
The television series wrapped, but drama keeps flowing down Wysteria Lane!!
Nicolette Sheridan’s attorneys brought new documents to court today in the hopes of bolstering her wrongful termination retrial. Her first lawsuit against Touchstone, as you remember, ended in a hung jury.
This evidence apparently proves Sheridan was fired from Desperate Housewives because she whined to the network about show-runner Marc Cherry striking her in the head.
What the??? This sounds like a deleted scene from the show!!
Her attorney’s brief stated:
Still sexy after all these years!!
Eva Longoria stopped by Late Show last night in a KILLER dress but that didn't distract David Letterman from quizzing her about harsh rumors of friction between her show's cast and its crew.
He asked about competition between Desperate Housewives cast members, killing off Nicolette Sheridan, and even the cheap parting gifts they handed out.
With the two-hour series finale only a few days away, we can finally get some truth about all this unpleasantness, right??
Check out Eva's
