Nicollette Sheridan, the actress in ABC’s Desperate Housewives, filed suit against the show alleging assault and wrongful termination.
Talk about a nasty boss! Sheridan is claiming that producer Marc Cherry hit her in the face on the Wisteria Lane set in September 2008. According to her suit, all she did was ask him a question and he “took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head.”
Sheridan claims that when she went to ABC and reported the incident, they responded by killing off her character. She is asking ABC for $20 million for creating a hostile work environment and behaving abusively toward the cast. I still think it sounds better than document review.
