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.

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.
Munsters 2.0 will actually be titled Mockingbird Lane.

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!
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!!
