Wow! We didn't see this coming!

In a surprise development regarding Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination lawsuit against ABC and Marc Cherry, the Desperate Housewives actress' attorney, Mark Baute, revealed a voice-mail he received from an anonymous "low-level" employee of the series. The employee claimed to have mistakenly received an e-mail which indicated that the studio was going to wipe all of the hard drives of their computers clean to erase evidence that her exit was premeditated, and NOT for creative reasons!

According to the voicemail:

Defense Attorney Claims Nicollette Sheridan Was NEVER A Main Character On Desperate Housewives!

defense-attorney-claims-nicollette-sheridan-was-never-a-main-character-on-desperate-housewives

Ouch! This has got to sting!

Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination lawsuit trial for her firing from Desperate Housewives has been getting pretty intense today, with the actress describing in detail an instance in which she alleges that creator Marc Cherry smacked her while filming a scene, and now, the defense attorney is firing back - BIG TIME!

According to Adam Levin, who is attempting to prove that the death of the Edie Britt character was not an unusual move for a network show but a creative choice, Sheridan was never one of the main cast members, as opposed to the other four stars - as she was not featured in group shots for the show's opening sequence, she was only nominated for a Best Supporting Role Golden Globe, and that's why she was paid less than the others!

ABC Hires Special Lawyer To Handle Desperate Housewives Lawsuit!

Uh-oh!

ABC must be really sweating it out over Nicollette Sheridan's lawsuit against her former Desperate Housewives boss, Mark Cherry, because they've hired an employment litigation specialist attorney named Adam Levin to take care of this mess!

And this guy is NOT fooling around! He's apparently served the actress' legal team with requests for a videotaped deposition as well as private documents.

He says:

"We have served subpoenas and are vigorously moving forward with our defense. We intend to delve into the merits of her claims, all of which we strenuously dispute."

We have a feeling this whole thing is going to get a whole lot uglier - if that's even possible - real soon!

What do U think?? Does Edie have a case or should she just settle??

ABC Wants To Settle With Nicollette Out Of Court!

This sounds pretty shady to us!

ABC execs are reportedly willing to give Nicollette Sheridan what they're calling a "peace package" to sway her from going forward with her $20 million wrongful termination lawsuit against her Desperate Housewives boss, Marc Cherry!

Apparently, Sheridan's lawyers have made it clear that they will subpoena the cast and crew of the hit series to give evidence in favor of the actress if the case does go to court, and the network desperately does not want that to happen!

We wonder why! What are you guys afraid will come out if people have to testify under oath?

According to a source:

"Our legal team is working to get both sides together to see if they can help ­broker a compromise. This doesn't mean that anyone is going to hand Nicollette $20 million to drop her action and walk away but there are various incentives that might be put on the table."

What do U think?? Will Nicollette settle or is this only going to get uglier in court??

Housewives Stars Respond! They All Side With Marc Cherry!

wenn1649530jb__optjb.jpg

Uh-oh! The Housewives have chosen a very clear side!

So much for Switzerland!

Amidst the nasty lawsuit Nicollette Sheridan filed against her former boss, Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, the other four ladies of the hit series - Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria Parker, Marcia Cross, and Felicity Huffman - have broken their silence and released this joint statement yesterday:

"It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicollette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment. It is, in fact, the opposite. The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day."

Teri Hatcher also decided to clear the air personally due to a claim made in Sheridan's suit that alleges Marc Cherry said, "I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies."

She states:

"I'm honored to stand with Eva, Felicity and Marcia, as a group and clarify that our set environment is nothing less than an amazingly positive experience. I have never felt discriminated against. In fact, I have felt heard and respected by Marc and other executives in regards to both my professional and personal needs."

Well, this certainly puts a spin on Edie's stories!

What do U think?? Do U think the Housewives are being truthful or do U think they're just trying to keep their jobs??
