Nicollette Sheridan has made some astounding claims about Marc Cherry, the creator of “Desperate Housewives,” alleging he SLAPPED HER IN THE FACE after she questioned something in the script, then fired her when she threatened to tell on him. No one likes a tattle-tale, Nicollette.
Nicollette is suing for assault and battery, gender violence and wrongful termination.
Sheridan is suing for more than $20 million.
Sheridan says during the 5th season, Cherry put her in his crosshairs. She claims on September 24, 2008, he physically assaulted her after she questioned him about something in the script. According to the lawsuit, “Cherry took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head.”
According to the suit, after the alleged incident, Cherry went to her trailer to “beg forgiveness.”
Sheridan says she immediately reported the incident to ABC, but Cherry’s aggressiveness only worsened and ABC failed to take action.
But according to the LA Times:
“While we have yet to see the actual complaint, we investigated similar claims made by Ms. Sheridan last year and found them to be without merit.”
In Cherrys defense, actors are usually idiots and shouldn’t question anything. Just say the words on the page, monkey. Of course that’s no excuse to slap her in the face. What a dickhead. Someone should go kick that guys ass. Not me though. He sounds mean. And I’m to pretty to risk.
