Nicollette Sheridan would make Edie proud. In a bombshell lawsuit against the creator of the show, Nicolette is spilling the beans on the physical and verbal abuse she experienced by the hands of Marc Cherry.
According to People magazine, Nicollette Sheridan alleges the show’s creator hit her in the face on the set and that she was then fired in retaliation for complaining about him, “resulting in her losing millions in future earnings,” says the suit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Sheridan, whose character was killed off the show last year, is suing for $20 million, alleging assault and battery, gender violence and wrongful termination. She claims series creator Marc Cherry created a hostile work environment, “behaving in an extremely abusive and aggressive manner.”
The crazy creator who forgot to take his menopause pills, even said “I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies,” Cherry told Sheridan, according to the lawsuit.
ABC should be shaking in their shoes, how could they allow such nonsense happen on the set? Not only has the TV show gone downhill, by turning a blind eye, they have allowed the shows creator to think he can get away with abusing women. I hope that Nicolette Sheridan wins her $20 million and laughs herself all the way to the bank. Shame on you Marc Cherry.
