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!

Paul Mitchell's Son Sued For Crotch Grabbing & Face Humping

Wow.

Angus Mitchell, son of the famous hairdresser Paul Mitchell, is being sued by an ex-employee for some ridiculously bizarre behavior.

In his lawsuit, Richard Flett claims he was sexually harassed and ultimately wrongfully terminated by Mitchell.

Some of the sexual harassment allegations listed in the court docs include:

Mitchell sneaking inside his hotel room to watch his penis while he slept, grabbing his junk in front of other employees, watching him while he peed, shoving his crotch in his face to hump it, and being forced to buy Mitchell cocaine and then use it with him.

Dayum.

Flett is seeking unspecified damages.

A rep for Angus said the claims are "somewhere between laughable and sad" and is "just an attempt by a disgruntled former employee to see if he can find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow". They said that's not going to work.

Marc Cherry Wants Parts Of Nicolette Sheridan's Lawsuit Dismissed

marc-cherry-versus-nicolette-sheridan.jpg

This lawsuit is still happening??

Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry and the show's former star Nicolette Sheridan have been in what's felt like a years long legal battle. Sheridan is suing Cherry for wrongful termination, breach of contract, and battery after her character was killed off the show.

However, Cherry is 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.

His lawyers say:

"Sheridan's services were governed by - as they had been, year after year - a one year fixed term contract between Touchstone and Starlike, which gave Touchstone the option to renew Sheridan's services for six additional one year-terms (or Seasons)…Sheridan had no more expectation of renewed employment for a sixth season than she had after the first season."

Sheridan claims that he also physically assaulted, but dropped those charges back in December. Hmm, interesting.

The case is set to go to trial in the fall where we're sure to see PLEN-TY of fireworks between the two parties.
