My jaw dropped to the floor when I heard this. Nicollete Sheridan is suing Marc Cherry, the creator of ‘Desperate Housewives,’ for assault and battery, gender violence, and wrongful termination. She alleges that he slapped her in the face on the set, and when she complained, he fired her. She also claims he created a hostile work environment, as he was “abusive and aggressive.” Wow. The tabloids reported the slap a long time ago, but Cherry dismissed it and the story died. It was also reported that Sheridan was so angry about her firing, she ransacked her trailer before leaving. Maybe those stories were true after all.
