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 ├é┬¡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??
