James Denton on ‘The View’ — Discusses ‘Desperate Housewives’ Lawsuit
James Denton appeared on The View to discuss his character’s demise on Desperate Housewives, and he surprisingly mentioned Nicollette Sheridan’s lawsuit against series creator Marc Cherry. In fact, he even made fun of it, saying, “He slapped me!” as a joke in reference to Marc Cherry. He also discussed a story he wasn’t allowed to tell during trial because of the opposing counsel’s objection. Without getting into the very complicated rules of evidence that took me years to fully understand in law school, let me just say that it’s not surprising that the judge ruled in favor of excluding his story. Furthermore, because Denton wasn’t present in Nicollette’s trailer when she alleges Marc Cherry slapped her, I find it in poor taste for him to take a side. And despite his proclamation otherwise — trust me — he’s taken a side.
