Desperate Housewives Lawsuit Dramz Continues! Nicolette Sheridan Files New Legal Papers

desperate housewives lawsuit continues round 2

This lawsuit keeps getting uglier.

To recap, Desperate Housewives' Nicollette Sheridan is suing show creator Marc Cherry for wrongful termination, breach of contract, and battery after her character was killed off the show.

Earlier this week, Cherry was disputing the claims of wrongful termination because "her contract only had a one year deal and the option to renew it wasn't utilized after the fifth season."

Now, Nicolette has filed new papers against Cherry claiming that she was fired from the show "for being a woman"

Here's what she said in the legal docs:

"Mr. Cherry harassed and discriminated against me because I am a woman."

"Mr. Cherry sang the praises of the other four leading actresses on the show but made disparaging comments about me and my character Edie Britt."

"Mr. Cherry was extremely controlling with respect to the scripts, particularly when the female actors on the show would propose script changes."

As we've said before, ABC and Marc Cherry should REALLY try to settle with Nicollette before it goes to trial this fall. It's just gonna get uglier.

What do U think about Nicollette's new claims against Marc Cherry? Valid or bullshiz?

Nicolas Cage Settles Lawsuit With Vampire Movie Producer

nicolas-cage-settles-case-with-producer.jpg

That was fast!

Just a couple days ago Nicolas Cage was hit with a lawsuit by producer Paul Brooks who worked with the actor on the movie Shadow of the Vampire, things have already been settled.

The two had a dispute over money Brooks believed Cage owed him. Looks like they've settled the amount owed (around $78,000) because Cage's rep said this:

"Contrary to recent reports that a lawsuit was going forth by Paul Brooks and Early Bird Productions against Mr. Cage, this matter has been resolved privately and amicably between the parties and therefore no legal action is being pursued."

Lucky break, Nic! Especially since we know you've kinda been going through a rough time lately. Chin up, buddy!

Kate Hudson Buys London Home, Plans To Move Across The Pond!

We guess she's taking the Madge and Gwyneth route!

Now that Kate Hudson is pregnant with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy's child, she and her baby daddy are looking to to find a permanent living situation together, and have reportedly bought a home together in North London so she can split her time between the UK and the US!

A source explains:

‘Kate is ready to put down roots in the UK. She is in the process of filling out visa forms that will enable her to live in England with Matt for at least six months of the year. Kate looks at the UK as a great place to raise a family. She sees herself living and working from London for the long haul. Matt and Kate have shown Goldie and Kurt around the area and Matt took them all to Devon to meet his parents. They also looked around Cornwall for a holiday home.’

Lovely lovely!

Sounds like they've given this a lot of thought and want to ensure that they have enough space for the entire extended family to be around whenever they can, which we think is a wonderful idea!

Congratulations, you guys!

Thoughts??

Osmonds Settle Lawsuit With Vegas Producer

Filed under: Legal MattersMarie Osmond

marie-and-donny-osmond-settle-lawsuit.jpg

Donny and Marie Osmond have settled a lawsuit with the producer of their Las Vegas show after he accused them of breach of contract, unjust enrichment, fraud, and defamation.

Chip Lightman claims that the siblings backed out of a contract that had extended their variety act, The Donny & Marie Show, at the Flamingo Hotel until 2012. He went so far as calling Donny "devious, fraudulent, and greedy" and alleged that he "concocted a scheme" to avoid paying him and demanded that he accept a 50% pay cut if he wanted to keep his job.

Looks like Chip has had a change of heart because he's dismissed the complaint and has settled with The Osmonds for an undisclosed amount.

He's also released a statement, apologizing for his harsh comments. It reads, "I am pleased we were able to resolve this matter and am sorry that, in the heat of battle, comments may have been made that were hurtful to the Osmonds."

In turn, Donny also released a statement on behalf of him and Marie, saying, "My sister and I want to thank Chip Lightman for great contributions he made in launching our show at the Flamingo. We look forward to the opportunity to work with him again in the future."

Wow, that's really decent of Donny to want to continue working with a man who called him "devious" and "greedy!"

In your face, Shady RV Dealer Guy!

Looks like there will be no push-up contest because Taylor Lautner has settled a lawsuit with McMahon's RV, the dealership who failed to deliver Tay Tay's $300,000 RV before shooting began on his new film Abduction.

His lawyer Robert Barta released a statement:

"McMahon's RV has agreed to settle its dispute with Taylor Lautner. McMahon's RV will pay $40,000 to Lautner, which Lautner will donate to The Lollipop Theater Network, a children's charity with which he has a long-standing relationship. The Lollipop Theater Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing movies currently in theaters to children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The Lollipop Theater Network works with hospitals nationwide, including the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas.‬"

That's right. You don't mess with Taylor!!

And now everybody wins!!

ABC Wants To Settle With Nicollette Out Of Court!

dh__optjb1.jpg

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??
